here's a nasty bolt out of the blue

A good friend of mine who is into vintage bikes and cars sent me this text message with a link

"had a interesting night talking to angry anderson and alan hay during angry's campaign tour for the seat of throsby. alan is going for the senate for the national party and has been campaigning for the last two years to stop the Labor party from taking vintage cars, bikes, hotrods, street machines, kits cars and 4wd's off the road permanently and killing the 6 Billion dollar industry that supports it."

If this really is the case, I don't care who you vote for, we must not allow an Idealist government ruin the industry and kill the hobbies and lifestyles for thousands of people. If you must support the ALP, at least write to your local member and voice your opposition to this sneaky policy. Can we make this a sticky thread, Rusty?

so I will do some searching and clarify it if required.

OK. Update. I spoke to my friend who was talking to Alan, and he will contact him with a request for more information, which I will post as soon as I receive it.
He did go on to say that this idea is to drive consumerism in Australia, similar to what they have in japan. i.e. throw out your old vehicles every 40,000 and go buy a new one. regardless of how good they still may be.Only thing is, in japan they are allowed hot rods and street machines, but our beloved leftie loonies want to kill it all off. makes me think this is "one of those policies they don't talk about until after the election"

On that note, beware who gets unfettered power in both houses of the parliament.

If your project doesn't work, look for the part you didn't think was important.

Can we trust the Nationals? These are the blokes who, at the last election, like everyone else, said they would definately finish the Pacific Highway to dual carriageway by 2016. We got a junk mail release from them last week which said thay are still " dedicated to finishing the Pacific Highway THIS DECADE." So much for 2016.
Perhaps, if Angry wants to help our cause, he should throw his weight behind the Motor Enthusiasts Party. I think they might get my vote.

I won't vote for any party who wants to get rid of old cars.
BEWARE any party says they "have no plans to remove old cars" or anything else for that matter, that's normally code for they have every intention of doing it.

Saying they "have no plans to..." gives them an 'out'. They just say, "Well, we didn't have plans to at the time, however the situation has changed now.. and blah, blah..."

I could find no reference on Alan Hay's National Party website to this claim, all I found was this quote.
Alan Hay.”Road safety is a key focus for Alan and will remain a priority.Alan believes passionately that Nationals policies give people the opportunity to be the “best they can be’, embracing ambition, enterprise and hope"

Does anyone seriously believe that Labour is going to take such things off the road??? Including 4WDs? Bikes?

If you do believe that, you would believe anything!
