#IndependentsDay lighting the regions this #ausvotes from one of #auspol’s safest conservative seats: @MalleeRay comments on his #MalleeVotes run

Fight the #ClimateEmergency and you might even win #ausvotes: @jansant comments on #ClimateElection

What if there was a climate emergency and the major party’s didn’t turn up? If you listen to many in mainstream media – what climate election? But they’re dead wrong. The Coalition and Labor Party failed to turn up – others didn’t and won victories or made strong inroads into the Coalition primary vote – […]

Ray Kingston closes in on the nation’s safest seat: @margokingston1 #MalleeVotes #podcast

The electorate of Mallee, until now, has been the safest seat in the nation. Margo Kingston (@margokingston1) spoke with Independent candidate Ray Kingston (@MalleeRay) in the final days of his campaign. The National Party has been doing a heap of polling here, and they are acting like they are pretty concerned, so I will take […]

Mix and mingle for forum season: @davelennonabc reports on #MalleeVotes

A funny thing happened on the way to the forum… ah, but which forum? That is the question. There have been so many since forum season started in Mildura an eternity ago, or so it seems. Since then there have been forums throughout the length and breadth of the electorate. Last Thursday was Horsham’s turn […]

Playtime is over as @malleeray gets the message out there: @davelennonabc reports on #MalleeVotes

Seven’s Sunrise program likes to have ‘personalities’ on to dissect the big issues of the day, which can turn out to be little more than: “Did you see that dress she wore?” On Saturday, one of the topics was the leaders’ debate the previous evening. Chris Smith bemoaned the fact that because it was on […]

Jason Modica making the government remember Mallee: @jansant #MalleeVotes #podcast

In this No Fibs podcast I chat with climate action Independent Jason Modica who’s one of three Independents putting in a strong challenge in the safe National-held seat of Mallee. Last week I took a drive through the southern section of the Victorian electorate. Mallee is one of the bigger electorates in Australia. There is […]

Having ‘the chat’ with rusted-ons, and other mysteries: @davelennonabc reports on #MalleeVotes with @malleeray

There’s no question that for any Independent hoping to dislodge a Nat from a safe seat you have to get some of the rusted-ons to rust off. The theory is a lot easier than the practice. There are a few announcements coming on that front from the @malleeray camp but at this stage I can […]

A forum, the future and covering all base camps on the #MalleeVotes campaign: @davelennonabc with @malleeray

I missed the first forum of the campaign in Mildura but got to Nhill. Let’s talk Nhill, I mentioned it briefly in the piece about Pyramid Hill but it is a truly remarkable community, another that has reversed its fortunes by embracing migrants and the economic opportunities they bring. At Nhill it is the Karen […]

#MalleeVotes will not be ignored: @davelennonabc reports on Ray Kingston’s clarion call #CampaignInsiders

I’ve been to a few election campaign launches over the journey: some slick, some frankly embarrassing, but I’ve never been to one like this. The Independent Voice for Mallee, Ray Kingston, chose the local bowling club at Rupanyup during the Dirt Music festival to make his case to be the next MP for the electorate. […]

Shouting at the television and planting gardens: #ActiveDemocracy stories by @adropex

What do shouting at the television and gardening have in common? From little things big things have grown. Gather ’round people, let me tell you a story… or two. Whilst a television was not one of the perks of an Aboriginal stockman’s life in the Northern Territory in 1966, the story of Vincent Lingiari and […]
