The Xenophon circus comes to Adelaide

After winding down over the holidays, many thought Xenophon had done his dash on announcements and surprise candidacies. However, it appears Xenophon has more to pull out of the hat.

Forget the Fringe. Pass on Womad. The cyclists can take a hike. The real circus has hit Adelaide.

Xenophon, the greatest showman, has done it again this week with an epic three-day bonanza of political twists and turns.

    Does anybody, including Xenophon, have any idea of what he and his acolytes stand for? Apart from ‘bums on seats”?
    Economic policy, renewables, public/private health and education, environmental issues, unemployment, privatisation, role of women …anything specific, not just platitudes and cliches, any well formulated clear definite policy on anything?
    Seriously, do we know what this mob are actually on about?

    In answer to your final question: NO…everything written here suggests SA Best will just be a ‘lite’ wing of the Lieberal Party.
    And one of those is more than enough…..VOTE LABOR if you have more than half a brain!!

      Agree, this ALP government has been the best and most stable in the country ever.

    I wish this love in with Nick would stop, he’s a freak show with bugger all to offer yet thinks even terrible deals are good deals if they are better than no deals.
