The fawning “interview” with Hsien Harper including the original declaration of myself as a supporter and sometimes advisor to the Greens – think of it as the Unauthorized Hsien Harper Fan Club, leave a comment, join the hugfest ;-)
By the way it’s my Blog and I’ll support, even fawn over, whomever I choose.
On air I declare my bias and occasionally cop flak from those opposed to my brand of social justice.
The whistleblower in this case called me a ” tofu muncher ” – that’s it man, beads at 50 paces. ( can’t stomach the stuff :^p )
IC’s Daniel Hatch was actually quite fair and almost accurate in giving me a “serve.” Just the misquote ( I always record my end of an interview ) where he asked if I’d mentioned the incident on air over the weekend and I said no.
I often cover politics, as I have for 30 years, but I’m not a working journo now and 6PR’s intelligent and well informed listeners are reglarly reminded of my ageing hippie bias – some occasionally take the time to show their objection with clever use of seldom used words and references to family members.
My Apologies to Alan Carpenter too, I do think he’s a dork but did not mean to scar him with my heartless jibe making the west, which was in fact intended to be a PRIVATE comment. (until I shot myself in the foot with the upload )
IC’s Daniel Hatch is good on the descriptions too, here’s a couple from his PUBLIC twitter feed
Daniel to @la…….e At least it’s not (Female Federal Minister) That woman is like a pethedine overdose every time she talks. Puts me to sleep without fail. about 7 hours ago from web in reply to la…….e
Daniel to @m..a Haven’t seen the film. I know it’s Richard Gere but there’s no suggestion (a Premier ) and the barmaid used a gerbil is there? about 8 hours ago from web in reply to m…a
No hard feelings mate – I would have run it too, just not the Carps bit, he’s got kids you know, as do I – you’ll note I protected your correspondents’ IDs
…anyway, below is my fawning adoration of someone who WILL make a difference when she’s elected to serve the people of Willagee ( minus the private chat before and after )
- Hsien Harper brings fresh energy to represent the people of Willagee – in more ways than one
Click here for audio of Hsien Harper with Tony Serve
Alan Carpenter failed the electorate, and Labor is likely to focus their new candidate on issues outside the electorate if he were to win the seat, doing what the factions say.
This by-election is an historic chance for the people of Willagee to shake up the powers that be and vote Greens WA for fresh energy in the community and clean, job creating, sustainable energy for the state.
