Democracy Canberra Style

canberra times cover

Why bother with even having our one lousy vote every four years when the Canberra Times can just tell us how it’s going to be?

At least Noel Towell managed to look at the camera. That’s something.

Oh what the hell let’s laugh at the little Korean man without realising he’s trying to mock the delusions of power.

What’s Your opinion?

It is likley Labor will hold power with the help of the greens but I still think the libs are a chance of 3 in brindy and Molonglo, Making final numbers

libs 8
alp 7
greens 2

and I still think an upset could be on the cards in Gindy with Chic pulling off a massive upset.

but i guess we will all know soon enough

Still pretty happy with that prediction but time will tell

So a day out from the election the CT admits that yes, it has been barracking for the ALP the whole time.

Have you never read a newspaper? Because every newspaper in this country editorialises on the eve of an election. I imagine some people here would have lambasted the newspaper as gutless if it hadn’t published an election editorial.

I was unsurprised by the editorial, though I don’t get why it ignored the Greens. They did win a large enough chunk of the vote to affect how this city is run.

It’s also a little odd that RA takes the stance that it would never publish the results of a poll, lest by doing so it might affect its readers’ decisions.

Yes newspapers editorialise before an election, they’re also meant to present the news, its right there in the name.

If you’ve read the CT during this election campaign, you would be a dunce if you didn’t realise their election ‘news’ seemed to be supporting the ALPs reelection.

Well, no, fuck me! I haven’t!
