Remember when the Convoy of no Confidence was about to hit Canberra and the left complained that it would cause traffic disruptions?
The Convoy organizers staged their entry so carefully, coordinating it with the Federal Police. They meticulously planned everything so as not to put out the average Canberran, even starting at 5.30am so as to avoid the peak hour traffic. They were scrupulously considerate. (Perhaps too much so.)
In the end, the fact that they were so well organized and polite was used against them. The pro-government forces hyped up the anger against the out-of-towners with threats that “it would cause major traffic delays” and “bring Canberra to a standstill”.
Compare this to these ‘Occupy’ rallies, where the protesters go out of their way to put out commuters and do a very successful job. Why no protestation from the left?
