Gamers4Croydon

Recommended Posts

It's official: Gamers 4 Croydon has now been registered as a political party, and can finally field a candidate in the looming South Australian state election. Their objective: to unseat the incumbent in the seat of Croydon, the notoriously obstructionist SA Attorney General Michael Atkinson.

 

Mr. Atkinson has chosen to mark the occasion by disparaging his underdog opponent.

 

"I assume the Gamers4Croydon campaign will involve criminal activities and dirty tricks, which is what I've come to expect from gamers."

 

"Regardless, I think they will struggle to get even 1 percent of the votes, and their campaign will actually discredit the public campaign in support for R18+ rather than enhance its chances. They [Gamers4Croydon] might do better leading up to the election, but at this stage they’re not doing anything. What's more, David Doe has to stop taking pleasure in people abusing me."

 

Perhaps Atkinson is correct about the chances of Gamers 4 Croydon winning. But as the old saying goes: 'no-one ever whips a dead dog...'

This guy seriously has rocks in his head :lol:

I really hope he loses at the election.

It's that bad that on a few of the overseas forums I'm on, even they know about Atkinson.

Some little knob from SA has became famous worldwide for being a moron :lol:

Well, quite frankly comments like that are almost justified. It's in retaliation to the morons who sent death threats to his house, actually slipping them under his front door. They've gone and screwed up any hope of persuasion for the rest of us.

But yeah, I'd be a happy boy if he loses his seat. It's up to your SA'ers to make it happen!

 

I'm a mod on www.xbox360forum.com, an international forum. That whole community is very much aware of this douche as well!

The funny thing is for all his ranting about violence etc in games and how they effect children, it will probably be a group of 14-17 year olds that throw molitovs at his house and cyber-attack him thanks to his efforts to prevent us all from having fun playing video games.

 

Irony can be amusing.

Well it's up to the Croydonites really... although I guess if the Labor party isn't elected he'll lose his place as Attorney-General.

 

Hilarious response from the comments on Kotaku:

 

“I assume the Atkinson campaign will involve paedophilia and viagra, which is what I’ve come to expect from grumpy old men,”

He was disbarred for creating false evidence/ lying in court, I think.

So Atkinson's gone, and we've got a new uninformed politician sticking his head where it doesn't belong!

Cliff Notes:

He thinks things like motion control and 3D TV make things too engrossing and kids will be exposed to more direct violence, therefore new laws need to be made to compensate. bhg4md.gif

 

 

Well, if that new law is an R rating, then all is good.

he's not an attorney general though, so he shouldn't affect the r18 side of things...

apparently 2 other AGs are still against R18 games, they just arent as vocal about it.

 

having said that, if they arent as vocal about it, they will probably be pushovers when it comes to changing their vote.

I have a feeling the ones that aren't vocal are WA and QLD.
