The very agressive lnp shill didnt want to talk to me after i told him I wasn't...

    the invisible MP for my electorate, Fiona Martin, got on the radio yesterday and tried to fend of questions about where she lives, by asking the ethnically asian candidate where were they born, then saying that candidate (sally Sitou) got kicked out of preselection for a state seat last time...
