LegCo reform push goes cute

A GROUP pushing for Upper House reform is using kittens to change the public's mind about the powerful house of review.

The Transform Tasmania Alliance has launched an online campaign "A Compelling Case for The Reform of Tasmania's Legislative Council brought to you by Kittens" on Facebook.

The web booklet features pictures of kittens with a range of issues being raised about the Upper House.

"Kittens are the most popular thing on the internet so we figured if you can't beat them, join them," Transform Tasmania Alliance spokesperson Brian Mitchell said.

"Reforming the Legislative Council is an important issue, but there's no reason you can't read all about it while looking at pictures of kittens."

Mr Mitchell said the campaign urges voters to support candidates who promise to reform the Legislative Council so it is more attuned to Tasmania in the 21st century, promise to be full-time MLCs and promise to open an office in their electorate.

"It beggars belief that many MLCs do not have local offices," Mr Mitchell said.

"Last year the Legislative Council sat just 50 days, and with all that spare time on their hands, many MLCs choose not to work full-time, instead doing other things like practising law.

"The TTA urges voters in those electorates to support candidates who will reform the Legislative Council so it stops being a 19th century drag on the state."

The call comes as candidates for the seat of Nelson are set to face off in the first public debate of the campaign next Wednesday at the Dr Syntax hotel on Sandy Bay Road in Sandy Bay at 7pm.

Sitting member Jim Wilkinson will debate Greens candidate Tom Baxter and independent candidate Helen Richardson.
