It would seem the greatest thing in Gladys Berejiklian‘s favor is ironically Michael Daley......

SMH editorial recommended the LNP too.

Time to cancel that subscription.

I don’t need someone to repeat my own opinions back to me , but fucked if I’m subsidising anyone who puts forward the LNP as an option for anything better than use as ballast in an Antarctic bound supply ship.

Well you can extinguish your preferences so neither will get your vote. Daley is appalling, very hard to vote Labor after his blatant hypocrisy.

"Under the NSW system of optional preferential voting, the voter only needs to number one square.
The political impact of NSW's voting system shows up when the votes are counted.
Ballot papers that quite literally run out of numbers during the distribution of preferences "exhaust" further preferences.
They are then removed from the count."

Understood, but it'd be a shame to potentially cut off your nose to spite your face, as dear old Gran used to say.

If everyone filled in one square in my electorate and exhausted their vote early in the piece, the Nats would get in, and we don't want that.

In my electorate we have had an NSW Independent representative for years now. Surrounded by areas that have voted Labour for 100 years, a decade or more ago this area faced disillusionment towards both major parties which meant people were more inclined to 'tell em to fuck off' in the most civilised way possible. By voting. We had a real authentic choice and a desire f or change.
In this day and age an Independent candidate CAN win. The public (non Terrorgraph readers) do have the ability to discern who they would like to have to represent them.
So even though we had our own 'member' his ability to have any real influence has been limited. More of a lobbiest at the front line than a deciding vote on legislation. If a hung parliament emerges from tomorrow things will be different. Which is great for old mate as he will get re-elected.
I usually have an easy decision to make. However in light of recent information and with some further research I have made the decision to place the local Sustainable Australia no.1 and old mate no. 2.
Lets just say that for me they ticked a lot of boxes.
Needless to say I will putting the 'Libs Last.', no actually, dead fucking last

Whilst I do believe whole heartedly in the 'Independents' I also strongly believe that quicker change can be made by 'groups', or is the politico term 'blocs'?

Nows the time
Each to their own
Time will tell.
Again.

Whoya gunna vote for? See the choices in your electorate.

(Dont be a donkey, your vote is pricey.
Every first preference vote above 4%? is reimbursed to the party/candidate at the rate of $4 - $4,50 per vote)

News Corp is headlining a minority government for the LNP.
At the same time over at Laboe HQ, ALP sources are quietly confident of forming minority government.

So who's it going to be, Murdoch or the People?

Perhaps it is appropriate that they are the ones in government over the next 4 years time as we see what happens when the money runs out because there's nothing left to sell, and stamp duty income reachs all time lows.

Well it doesn't tell us anything as it has not been made public. What we do know is that he has already indicted significant figures from the Trump campaign and administration as well as laying charges against numerous Russian agents. His final conclusions will be interesting and it is very possible that there is no evidence linking Trump to their actions. Regardless of that, Trump, his family and associates are under investigation in numerous states for a wide variety of potential crimes. He is a long, long way from being in the clear.
