Tips and rumours

Rhiannon has a spray at rivals ... women's Ashes put to to the test ... Jensen bound for the silver screen? ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Rhiannon takes aim. Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon has sent an email out to Greens members defending herself and taking aim at others as part of the preselection battle for first spot on the NSW Greens senate ticket for next year’s election. The email largely deals with why she decided to run again — a theme that allows her to take a few shots at some of those with whom she had run-ins in the past year.

    Lee Rhiannon is out of her time zone, the facts are, to be a recognised player in today’s mainstream politics requires main stream policies, the days when single policy agendas enabled aspiring politicians to gain office are no longer enough, because once in office to remain relevant or a viable prospective member of any government means appealing to the broad spectrum of voter expectations and fulfilling the broader public wants and needs, you cannot make every one happy, the job is to please enough to stay in government, that`s what is destroying the present coalition government, they are only representing the wealthy and big business and either ignoring or attacking the rest of society, thereby alienating the majority and are about to pay the electoral price, Lee Rhiannon still wants to appeal to just the hardcore green base and that`s no longer an option in today`s society and Richard Di Natalie is right to try and have her replaced by a more progressive and maybe younger candidate
