DAVID TOLLNER, FEDERAL MEMBER FOR SOLOMON: Probably for the first time ever in a federal campaign the national issue, the big national issue, was the big local issue.
DAVID TOLLNER: Well Michael, look as I said to the media at the time, that's an issue that's a private matter between my family and the family down the road from me and we intend to keep it as a private matter and we don't intend to discuss it in the media.
DAVID TOLLNER: I think probably since the previous NT election there, the party may have, sort of, looked a bit stale.

 Senator Trish Crossin : Speeches 2002   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In regard to the seat of Solomon, although David Tollner may well be a likeable fellow, I am hoping that his time in the other place is very short and that he enjoys the next three years—I am hoping he will be there for only three years.
David Tollner in the seat of Solomon should, on paper, if the national trend had translated to what was happening in the Northern Territory, now be sitting on a very safe seat of over four per cent, but he is not.
David Tollner won the seat of Solomon by only 88 votes against a fantastic candidate in Laurene Hull.

 Address at Solomon Community Morning Tea Kalymnian Hall, Darwin   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
I’ve come here this morning very specifically, very unapologetically and very deliberately to urge you and your fellow Territorians to return David Tollner as your Member for the seat of Solomon whenever the federal election is held.
David is a big hearted, hard working, enthusiastic representative of you in Canberra.
But one of the issues that David has taken up with me is something that I gather, not only from him but particularly from him but also from many other people, really niggles with the people of Darwin, and that is the question of entry fees into the Kakadu National Park.

 Out of order: MP forced to apologise for behaviour on flight - National - www.smh.com.au
David Tollner, who holds the most marginal Coalition seat in the country, Solomon in the Northern Territory, by just 0.1 per cent, was forced to apologise in the House for "boorish" behaviour on a Qantas flight between Adelaide and Canberra on Sunday night.
A Labor MP on the same flight, Rod Sawford, told journalists Mr Tollner was behaving like he was drunk and was standing up as the flight came into land in Canberra, after the seatbelt sign had come on and flight staff were seated for landing.
Mr Tollner's first response was to label the allegations as "one of the things a nancy boy in Adelaide would say" and "a terrible beat-up".

 Scotsman.com News - Sci-Tech - Fury at Australian politician's 'smash toads' call   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Government politician David Tollner told Australians in the country’s Northern Territory that they should obliterate the toxic creatures to stop them spreading.
Mr Tollner, the member for the Northern Territory seat of Solomon, said the cane toads - which have highly poisonous sacs behind their head that quickly kill native animals that prey on them - should be eradicated by "any means possible".
Australia has for decades fought unsuccessfully to stop the spread of cane toads, imported from Hawaii in 1935 in a failed attempt to combat greyback beetles which were threatening the country’s tropical northern sugar cane fields.

The decision by the Minister for Environment and Heritage Ian Campbell, pictured here with David Tollner, to not allow the export of crocodile safari hunting trophies is a ‘shocker’, according to the Federal member for Solomon David Tollner.
Mr Tollner said that the decision by the Minister just shows how out of touch some Canberra politicians are with the true outback, frontier spirit of the Territory.
Extraordinarily, Mr Tollner, Senator Nigel Scullion and the Territory Government were all in favour of responsible crocodile safari hunting because it was seen as way of utilising the Territory’s fantastic natural assets to generate income and wealth particularly for local indigenous communities.

Dubbed by a local newspaper as the "member for gaffes," Mr Tollner was forced to apologise to fellow MPs for his behaviour on a flight to Canberra but denied he was drunk.
But Mr Tollner must be worried about the impact of Ms Haygarth's claims on his chances of re-election in Solomon, a largely urban seat where dogs are a passionate issue.

 Club Troppo » Campaigning on the frontier
It may be of some interest given that the federal seat held by the CLP’s David Tollner is Australia’s most marginal.
However, my main reason for posting it is to comment on the actions of my former ALP colleague Warren Snowdon in commencing defamation action against Tollner for comments that don’t seem to be even slightly out of the ordinary run of day-to-day political rough and tumble debate.
Given that Tollner’s allegation seems to be that Snowdon will retire before the forthcoming election and throw things into chaos, it’s difficult to see how Warren could ever prove any damage flowing from the statement.
