Can you feel it?
Can you feel it? That election fever that's griping different parts of Australia. From New South Wales to Western Australia, with Territorians going to the polls tomorrow (Saturday 09/08/08) Australians are being given the right to vote for their representatives for different levels of government.

Will a line be drawn in Lyne?
For the Nationals the by-election for Lyne will be a significant test. Perhaps better put; significant tests. It will test their capacity to generate a supporter base, their ability to continue to attract voters if a good Liberal candidate is put forward, meeting the cost of the by-election campaign and their continued relevance in a change federal political landscape.

When for Mayo or Lyne?
It's been an absolute eternity in the world of politics since Alexander Downer officially resigned and the Australian Electoral Commission is yet to announce a date for the by-election. There had been some early conjecture about the cost of the by-elections to voters from the ALP, in a bid to win some cheap points, which has been repudiated by the AEC since. The AEC declared that the cost of running the by-elections wouldn't matter if they were held at the same time or not.

Like rats or saints?
Well it took Downer long enough to officially declare his resignation in writing. But the real 'Flipper' came from Vaile's resignation announcement, this is an announcement only people so let's not get too excited yet, and no doubt will follow Downer's lead in goading the ALP about fielding a candidate. Downer was at it again today saying Labor was cowardly for not standing a candidate, while Labor wimped on about Mayo being un-winnable.
