|Mr Wayne Swan, who is not a swan,|
but a human, and the current Member
I'm feeling quite put out at the moment.
You see, Miss 21's got a blog going. She's interviewing all of the candidates in Lilley, the seat I'm running for in Federal Parliament.
Her blog is called Eyes on Lilley, and it's really very good, except for one thing.
She's interviewing all the human candidates, and doing profiles on them. But she's not interviewing me!
She says she's doing this for University and the University's not interested in the Feline Pawty. Can you imagine that? An institution of higher learning is not interested in the newest, most exciting movement in Australian politics! That is outrageous!
I'm going to have to talk to Loupi, the Feline Pawty's Shadow Minispurr for Education, about this. When we win the election, this is one thing that's really going to have to change.
Miss 21's latest interview, which is going to be on her blog soon, is with Mr Wayne Swan. He may sound like he should be a bird, but Mr Swan's a human. He's the sitting member, former Deputy Prime Minister, and former Treasurer. He's my biggest competition in this campaign, at least for my seat. Of course, for Prime Minispurr, I'm competing against Mr Rudd and Mr Abbott as well. But I have to win Lilley to get into Purrliament at all.
So what would my profile have looked like if it had appeared in "Eyes on Lilley?"
I like to think it would have been something like this:
Meet Your Candidate: Mr Bumpy
|Feline Pawty Leader and Candidate for|
Lilley, Mr Bumpy.
Mr Bumpy is the founder and leader of the Feline Pawty, Australia's first non-human political party.
He dreams of an Australia where there is no homelessness, where everyone has cream and stinky fish to eat, and there are jingle balls and catnip for all. Mr Bumpy said it wasn't just a dream, he had a definite plan.
Apart from concerns about national issues such as asylum seekers, he also has an acute awareness of the issues of the Lilley electorate.
"There's a serious catnip shortage in Lilley," Mr Bumpy said. "Every time Mum goes to buy a new plant, they've sold out. She's been able to buy me cat grass and cat mint, but there's just never any nip plants available. This is totally unacceptable, and as your local member I will do something about it. In fact, as Prime Minispurr, I'll make sure there's always nip available nation-wide."
So, when you read "Eyes on Lilley", and see my competition in my own electorate, you'll just have to imagine that my entry's there as well.
Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
Supreme Feline Overlord,
Feline Pawty Prime Minispurrial Candidate.
