Steven Bailey ran at last year’s election to represent the ACT in the Senate for Katter’s Australia Party. He is pictured above trading hats with Senator Katter in Parliament House.
He’s a well known playwright and writer and can frequently be seen around Civic.
So it was with some alarm we saw he posted to facebook, and tagged in a who’s who of local public figures, a call to crime.
“As an act of civil disobedience I occasionally swipe something from them [Coles and Woolworths] and give it to a homeless person; and I encourage others to do the same,” Steven wrote.
It’s certainly going to make for an interesting platform should he run for office again.
