    Tanya Plibersek in Q&A - 9:35pm Monday, September 24 2012

    You can ask a video question via the net on your ipad.

    ABC Television - ABC1 - Q&A - Tanya Plibersek, Kelly O'Dwyer, Mark Carnegie, Elliot Perlman & Jason Silva - 9:35pm Monday, September 24 2012

    Where to ask your question : Q&A | ABC TV


    I think we should let SAS take care of this. But lets discuss what should be asked, if anything should be asked at all.

    I don't think they could say much. It's not a well covered topic and they're not the ones who come up with policy they just spout meaningless rhetoric IMHO.

    I agree.. that's why I mentioned the option of not asking anything at all.

    Like most pollies , if there isnt a prepared answer to a non alerted question , it will get passed over ...they only ever really want to answer Qns they have they have already rehearsed the answers to, and I am betting e-cigs wont be one of them apart from the Std Govt line we all know . (IMO)

    E.G. " Miss Plibersek , what is your stance in regard to the use of electronic cigarettes ( insert random Qn here"

    Answer " As far as our government is concerned there has been no evidence presented as to the safety of such devices , and as such they should not be used ... my minions will look into it blah blah blah "

    Followed by an aide writing down .... Tanya said e-cigs are bad ... form opinion and research to back this up in case the media asks anything

    Nice article there Stoney , I particularly liked "Particularly troubling is when those deaths are caused by the sale of addictive substances by for-profit multinational corporations." A convenient lack of reference to the huge amount of taxation revenue they Non-Interested government party takes LOL

    Ok so the govt knows that most people smoking are already poor, mental and marginalised and yet they hike taxes and screw the people who can least afford it.

    Oh wait a minute that's par for the course what was I thinking.

    Well...Plibersek I think said that there are no plans yet to increase the price, as it would put excessive financial strain... but I'm pretty sure thats to control vote numbers from the working class. Labor wants to piss off smokers enough to make them quit, but not enough to lose their vote.

    The shameful display by Labor over the gay marriage vote puts them on probably the last final thread for my vote. I just cant in good conscience vote for Abbot. If the election was tomorrow, I personally would not put pen to paper. I'm becoming very jaded with Australian politics... which I think is what they want.

    IMHO there is no point asking a question - we'll just get the usual BS rhetoric.

    The ONLY way to ask the question is in person, when you have a chance to actually discuss it. That way when they hit with the usual BS answers, you can counter with the actual science. But seriously...how would be even BEGIN to make that happen?
