I’m not very good at arguing about politics.  Which is a shame since my Pop was part of the creation of the DLP (scroll down and check out the guy sat right in the middle of the front row). And he was a good arguer.

Is that even a word?

I’m what you’d call a leftie and go with my gut instinct when it comes to the basics of my political beliefs, with big helpings of advice and info from like-minded family and friends.

And infographics like this, which I have shamefully stolen from Elizabeth (click for full-size image that doesn’t throw out my beautiful WP theme):

I haven’t entirely decided which way I’ll vote on Saturday in terms of where I want my preferences to go, but it might have to wait until I talk to our local Greens/independent/Sex Party reps when I turn up at the polling booth on Saturday (I’ve NEVER spoken to those nutjobs outside the school hall on election day, and TBH I’m a bit scared about it).

  1. I’ll be one of the Sex Party nutjobs! I’m getting fliers and a tshirt and am heading over the border to Queanbeyan to do my bit. I’ll try to be lovely and win over people like you (oh and I’ll read up on the policies too!)

    I’ll be voting Greens personally – as there’s only 3 candidates in the lower house for me, and 9 in total (4 parties – Green, Lib, Lab, Democrat and a indep) in the senate race for the ACT!
