Qld state election - dirty tricks dept. Standover tactics

Servo owner threatened for displaying LNP sign.

FOR Manly BP service station owner Jim Theodorou, one threatening telephone call has led to a flood of messages of support.

"Ninety-nine per cent of the phone calls have been saying: 'Well done; it's about time someone stood up'," Mr Theodorou, 49, said yesterday.

"The last thing people say to me is: 'Stick it to them'."

Mr Theodorou was yesterday "sticking it" to the ALP by sticking with the Liberal National Party signs erected at his service station premises.

A self-proclaimed long-time Labor voter and fishing charter operator, Mr Theodorou had agreed to the LNP signs after he decided to switch political allegiance in protest at the State Government's creation of Moreton Bay green zones.
