Twitter Updates for 2012-10-03

  • I'm never sure if it's trust or absent-mindedness when a store owner leaves their store, leaving me, a customer, in it alone. #
  • In Braddon I'm noticing a lot of Katy Gallagher's pamphlets in letter boxes starting "Dear Gungahlin Resident". Braddon is not in Gungahlin. #
  • A photo of one of @KatyGMLA's "Dear Gungahlin Residents" pamphlets in a letterbox on Donaldson St, Braddon. http://t.co/8cqom3Z3 #
  • @mtk777 The point of distributing pamphlets is to send a message of competence. The wrong ones going to a whole suburb does not do this. in reply to mtk777 #
  • @mtk777 I agree that there are bigger things to criticise them for, but one expects a government to be able to organise things well. in reply to mtk777 #
  • @Canberra_Labor Good luck getting to the bottom of it. I'd demand a refund or a free delivery of the correct material if I was you. in reply to Canberra_Labor #
  • For the benefit of my Twitter feeds which don't carry retweets properly ACT Labor say they're investigating how paid deliverers got it wrong #
  • @Canberra_Labor Btw, I'll update my blog post with your response as soon as I get home. in reply to Canberra_Labor #
  • @Canberra_Labor All done. By the way, upon checking my letterbox in Reid, same thing I'm afraid. Have a good evening. in reply to Canberra_Labor #
  • @mtk777 I do hope to hear about the outcome of their investigation. And I will give them credit for responding to me, given my allegiances. in reply to mtk777 #

ACT Labor are so out of touch, they can’t even identify Gungahlin

These pamphlets were dropped in letter boxes all over Braddon today.

The only problem is that these start with “Dear Gungahlin Residents” and Braddon is nowhere near Gungahlin.

Braddon is a suburb of the inner-north, whereas Gungahlin as a suburb and as a town centre is much further north. Here, from my phone, is a quick map of the distance between the two, with the gap south and east of Mitchell being the approximate dividing line between the two town centres.

It’s rather concerning, but not surprising, that Canberra’s out-of-touch Labor government can’t even figure out where bits of Canberra are any more.

Update 5:42pm: ACT Labor have been in touch on Twitter to advise that they’re investigating what went wrong:
Hi @Samuel_SGS Some newsletters have been incorrectly delivered. Talking now with paid delivers trying to find out how this error occurred.

That will be an interesting discussion, I’m sure. If I was them, I’d be demanding a refund and/or free delivery of the correct material. They might also want to check the deliveries in Reid, as I have since discovered that Reid has received the same “Dear Gungahlin Residents” material.

End Update
