It's a good point you make about the political polls usually not taking individual seats in to account. This is a particular nuisance for me as I am running as an independent candidate in the upcoming federal election, and I am not represented in these polls! The fact that my seat is considered a safe Labor seat makes it even harder as it is only marginal seats that ever seem to get any attention from these polls.
Also I think the Democrats are on to something with their suggestion today that we should have fixed four year terms for federal parliament. I agree with their sentiments about fixed terms because this stupid guessing game we are forced to endure every election about the election date is very annoying. That being said, I would much rather have three year terms than four year terms as I think four years is just a bit too long between elections.
And I will also be putting a few dollars on Bruce The Goose at Port Macquarie tomorrow. I reckon Stan and Bruce will be having a flutter on it up in heaven as well.
Have a great weekend Stuart.
