  1. Update: I’ve switched the link to John Dickson’s article in SMH to a very similar one by Michael Jensen (based on a piece originally by Dickson), which is a bit more to the point.

  2. So, “Tilt the system”, eh? Vote for the greens won’t get a candidate elected, eh?
    Nice one Arthur… ;)

    (I presume you are voting in the Melb. electorate – had to be the first one to get this jibe in….)

  3. Yep, we were in the Melbourne electorate – part of a historic moment!

    Apparently the swing to the Greens was twice that of the swing to the coalition – let’s hope it pulls Labor left! :)

  4. Well guys, there is another election coming up in less than 3 months, this time a State election. I look forward to hearing what you have to say about it. In the meantime, let me encourage you to think about the following 4 laws which have been introduced by the current Victorian government over the last decade.

    – Racial and Religious Tolerance Act 2001 (aka put a Christian in jail for preaching that Islam leads to hell)
    – Abortion Law Reform Act 2008 (aka kill a baby any time up to birth)
    – Assisted Reproductive Treatment Act 2008 (aka children do not need a mother and a father)
    – Equal Opportunity Act 2010 (aka force Christian churches, schools and agencies to employ non-Christians)

    Do you think these are good reasons for Christian voters to punish the current Victorian government at election time?

    Cheers and God bless

  5. Thanks for your thoughtful commentary on the election this year guys, I found it really helpful to think through the issues and actually look at the policies of my candidates prior to voting. It’ll be interesting to see what the results end up being!
