I'll certainly accept it's a mystery why Lucas putting his head above the firing line was considered a good idea by anyone.

It's the week before an election and they have their mouths open, only a matter of time before a foot falls in.

The Danig Party is South Australia's newest political party! We welcome anyone who is interested to come and join us at the West Croydon RSL on the last Sunday of every month from 3pm, where we have a general meeting of discussion to help guide and shape the Danig Party into the party for the people of Australia. Please understand that being a member of the Danig Party requires no costs and no obligation of any duties. We look forward to share discussion with everyone who attends!

Most people may be unsure of what the word Danig means or stands for. Danig is a dutch word which means when translated to the English language "serious"and "considerable". We as a party want to be able to work seriously and look to help move our country forward in all aspects. Previous and current political parties of Australia have acted as serious groups who help build this country, but we want to achieve higher than them and live up to our party name of being considerable towards the people of Australia.

Unfortunately I was waiting for the Libs tl shoot themselves in the foot to lose the election.

Think back well Marshall at anytime.

Then think back to Vicky Chapman not ruling out a leadership challenge to Isabel Redmond in the last week of the election campaign.

Now its good old Rob Lucas.

Yes, but can only be raised with the consent of the states.

Jay's previous policy was in favour of it.

No he couldn't unilaterally raise the GIST (albeit has increased other point of consumption taxes this term)

Labors ads where Marshall makes a verbal gaff are ******* shite. So he had a slip of the tongue, that might be worth a laugh that day but to reel it out months later in an election? Lame.

I think Labor are getting a bit desperate and we all know what that means.

Labor only leading SA Best 51-49 in Taylor!

I was at my mother's tonight and the amount of advertising Mullighan is doing in Lee is staggering barely a stobie pole unmolested, mum even got a robo call from Weatherill when I was there and said she's sick of him ringing her! lol

The amount of robocalls and robopolls since the start of the year has been absurdly intrusive.

Next Parliament seriously needs to look at regulating them

All the states and the commonwealth need to agree to raise it.

Tasmania and NSW are currently Liberal held, WA,SA, VIC and Qld are Labor held, the federal government a LNP coalition.

There is ZERO chance they all agree on any major fiscal policy and there is LESS THAN ZERO chance Weatherill can do it on his own.

It is an awful Liberal scare tactic that people just can't fall for.

It was however Weatherill's policy at one point.

He either stands by it or he doesn't.

The Liberal campaign is undoubtedly an exaggeration, but hell, i'm not even sure its that disingenuous.

It wasn't his policy, it CAN"T BE, he agreed with the then NSW premier that it should be considered.

It's obviously not the Libs who don't get it.

I predicted Taylor was a trouble seat for Labor two weeks ago.
I noticed that the SA Best candidate was gaining some traction in the western parts of the seat - a petition to put a roundabout in at a very dangerous intersection is getting some interest, while she had a positive response from a local residents group to some of her policy.
The nominal incumbent John Gee is a former Holden union rep, who some in the party think is a lazy member. With the change in boundaries, plus the Vlahos issue, I felt Taylor was always a seat that could fall.
It's one of those seats out north that I alluded to in a previous post that has a changing demographic.

Spotted them a couple of weeks ago and wondered wtf?
It seems at this point they're a western subs 'phenom' with most of their candidates out there. Are all of their candidates of Dutch heritage?
I'm judging by that post from their website and the explanation of their name that they're 'right of centre'. How far right?

By the wording of their statement I'm guessing considerably right of centre.

By and large, yes, at least according to their 16 point manifesto/policy statement.
