Anna Bligh faces eight in South Brisbane seat tussle ...

... but unlikely to lose her seat.

Bligh to face eight rivals for seat

4 March 2009

A prominent Aboriginal activist, an anti-fluoride campaigner and a serial candidate have lined up to challenge Queensland Premier Anna Bligh in her Brisbane seat.

The premier is in a race against eight other candidates in her seat of South Brisbane - the largest number of candidates in any one electorate for the March 21 election.

Independent candidate Merilyn Haines said fluoridation - which Ms Bligh has labelled one of the greatest achievements of her government - was unethical mass medication.

Ms Haines said she also opposed the introduction of recycled water.

"Too put it crudely, it's no poo and no flu," Ms Haines told AAP.

"There should be no recycled water and no fluoride water.

"There are lots of adverse health effects."

Labor, the LNP, the Greens and the Daylight Saving party are also running in the seat.

Ms Bligh has represented the South Brisbane electorate since 1995 and holds the seat by a margin of over 18 per cent.

Anna Bligh has already got the green vote. The Greens are a branch of the Labor Party. They will allocate their votes to Labor nearer the election date. Their 4000 votes cost John Howard the seat of Bennelong. A VOTE FOR THE GREENS IS A VOTE FOR LABOR!!!!!Don't be fooled into another term of Labor bungling, deceit and mismanagement. Remember recycled water (still on agenda) forced amalgamation, bungled Traviston Crossing Dam decision, forced fluoridation. Traffic chaos, no range crossing - not to mention Dr Patel, Byndaberg Hospital coverup and the Hospitals mismanagement and coverups. They have to go!
