In the Third Ward, Zane Alcorn,* Thomas Cameron and Laura Ealing are appealing to workers to Vote 1 Socialist Alliance; the Australia First candidates are Nathan Clarke (‘nafe’ on the the world’s #1 white supremacist website Stormfront), Ian McBryde and Jim Smith. They come from an alternate, Whites-only universe, and are standing in a separate Ward.
- *In a previous battle, the rappin’ skillz, phat beats with tight cuts and incisive lyrics of Zane Alcorn, aka MC Doc Fruit, failed to set the electorate of Wills on its head. Zane got 624 votes in the 2007 Federal election, or 0.7% of the total, a reduction of 0.4% from 2004 for SA. On the bright side, Zane still managed to soundly defeat the CEC candidate, which is something, and the move north may well ripen Fruit’s appeal.
Elsewhere in NSW, SA is standing other losing candidates. Thus in Blacktown City Council Third Ward, Rachel Evans, Soubhi Iskander and Hassan Abaid are battling for power, while in Marrickville Council North Ward, Pip Hinman, Jill Hickson and Howard Byrnes are keeping the spirit of the (murderous) Che Guevara alive.
And in very late-breaking news, in the WA state election on September 6, SA member Julie Grey is running as an Independent in the North Metropolitan Region (for a seat in the Legislative Council). Julie is the only SA member running in WA, and is facing an uphill battle not to come last of the 33 candidates all vying for a seat in Parliament.
Can Julie beat Ben McKinnon of the Daylight Saving Party? Will Paul Augustson and Ron J McLean demonstrate that Lyndon LaRouche really is a genius, or at least more popular among the good citizens of North Metropolitan Perth than a devotee of Marx and Engels? Who is the mysterious Douglas Greypower, and can his magic overcome the allure of Socialism? Stay tuned!
