Increased margin due to approval of her dual roles[edit]

I have made a minor change to the article to remove a statement that Ms Moore's improved margin in the 2007 election was due to public approval of her dual role as Lord Mayor and MP.

I don't believe it is possible to so definitively attribute the increased margin to this issue. Ms Moore's dual role has received some media coverage (though less in recent times), but it cannot be said to be the only isssue in Bligh/Sydney. The quality of other candidates,Ms Moore's work as a local MP and the mild boundary changes might also have an impact.

Also, the 2007 election saw an overall swing away from the ALP, but this did not always translate into a vote for the Liberals. Parts of Ms Moore's electorate are strongly Labor - some of these voters may have wished to cast a protest vote and did so by voting for Moore and not the Liberal candidate.

If there is reliable evidence that the swing was in fact solely due to the dual role issue and not any of the above, then by all means restore the sentence to the article. Euryalus 23:54, 17 May 2007 (UTC)

Pet sale ban proposal[edit]

I thought this was worth mentioning somewhere- http://www.smh.com.au/news/pets/no-more-doggy-in-the-window/2007/10/18/1192300991865.html Abort-O-Matic 5000 12:37, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Maybe see what happens with the bill. See if it gets passed law, or rejected without consequence.--Lester 02:50, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

Propose deletion of unreferenced material[edit]

I propose that the unreferenced material in this article be deleted. Large sections are not referenced. The subject is famous enough to have ample references. I'm also not against 'Controversy' sections, but they must be referenced.Lester 05:48, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

'Lady Mayoress'[edit]

In London, "Lady Mayoress" is reserved for the female spouse of a (male) mayor, who is invariably Lord Mayor. If this is the case in Sydney, then the edits made are in error. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.173.133.4 (talk) 11:50, 13 April 2008 (UTC) I would have thought that as the Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore is entitled to be styled the Right Honourable Clover Moore. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.41.179.162 (talk) 02:54, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

In Australia, the honour of being called Right Honourable is reserved for members of the Privy Council. This entitlement was abolished during Bob Hawke's term as Prime Minister when the Australia Act formally severed Australia's links to England's courts and parliament in 1986. Honourable is retained and reserved for members of Cabinet, in either State or Federal parliaments, but not Territory parliaments. As Moore is not a member of cabinet in New South Wales Parliament, she is not entitled to be bestowed with the title of The Honourable. By convention, her role in State Parliament is considered of higher significance than her role as Lord Mayor. Her correct title is Ms Clover Moore MP, Member for Sydney, Lord Mayor of the City of Sydney Jherschel (talk) 10:13, 26 October 2010 (UTC)

Age[edit]

Kyle Sandilands commented in the Daily Telegraph that Ms Moore is 80: [1]. A quick Google search, the only link to state her DOB is: [2] and it states she was born on the 22 October 1945, making her 65 (or 66 in 12 days). Ms Moore has been around for quiet some time, but 80 would make her the oldest MP in the Legislative Assembly and would be something the press would almost certainly pick up on. 65 seems more realistic. Any suggestions or other DOB finds? Романов (talk) 23:36, 9 October 2010 (UTC)

Reopening the city centre[edit]

Moore proposed today to open stores, nightclubs , cafes and art galleries up late to attract more tourist. This announcement came around 1 year after she proposed to shut down nightclubs and bars before a certain hour (I think it was 12am).

81st Lord Mayor of Sydney[edit]

Clover Moore and Lucy Turnbull are both listed at the 81st Lord Mayor of Sydney. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robosaur88 (talkcontribs) 12:27, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Fixed, Moore is the 82nd Lord Mayor. EdChem (talk) 14:09, 1 January 2016 (UTC)
