It's true that it can get a bit pointless, but I guess I had one or two people in mind that just about made it worthwhile (ie who wouldn't have been caught in the net merely sticking above the line).

I loved one independent candidate for Victoria who had the SAME video autoplay on every single page on his website. Mate, I've already fucking seen your goddamn video.

Plus most of these videos are a complete waste of time.

Who the hell watches any of them? When I'm reading the paper, well, it's right there in the verb: I'm READING.

Yes, precisely. I figure if it's not in the text of your article, you should have put it there, so fuck off.

I get that the videos are part of a plan to attract a wider audience bla bla bla, but ... what audience? Who's going to the Age for their videos? Most of the journos in them are pretty mundane in front of a camera too. It's like, there's a reason why you work for a NEWSPAPER.

First beer of election day tastes of democracy and preferences.

Hope they had some vegetarian and vegan alternatives at some of those potentially-Green inner-northern metro seats 👍

Not a mention of Chilcot in FYM, what a surprise.

Also wow - NSW has just banned greyhound racing (although it's hard not to be cynical, the main greyhound track is prime real estate that can be sold to developers).

Re: Chilcot - Jez on the right side of history once again. Also, UK Labour now have a membership of approx. 600,000. Up something like 200k since Brexit happened.

There's a byelection in Toowoomba this weekend, occasioned by new LNP Groom member John McVeigh's half-term leapfrog from state politics. The popular (well she was in 2008) former city mayor Di Thorley is standing as an independent, and anecdotally I wonder if the LNP's handpicked candidate - another of those eminently punchable faces they seem to grow in a vat somewhere - isn't looking shaky.

I even got, in addition to two separate 'official' candidate letters, a crafty looking print job that appears to be a long letter in the handwriting of the candidate's wife, complete with a photo of the young sweethearts in their youth. Yeah, they're not feeling sure at all, and so they should not.

I am hoping for an upset. Incidentally any new independent will hold considerable power in the current Queensland parliament.

Try as they might to blast him out of the chair, one of the better things about the UK Labour Party is that it is ultimately a matter for the membership.

I can hardly think of anything less likely to persuade me to vote for somebody.

Because Queensland politics definitely isn't exciting enough already. Haha god I hope this happens.

I nearly thought the letter must have been one of those 'I and my husband make $5000 a day working from home HERE'S HOW' adverts until I saw the name signed at the end.
