First article I ever published in the long defunct Labor Forum was about the 1988 NSW election. So 23 years later my thoughts on current NSW election submitted for another site:
1. Opinion polls should be taken seriously, many doubted that Labor would do as poorly as it did at the federal and Victorian elections of last year but it did; 2. Big swings mean the loss of ‘safe’ seats, in 1932 Labor lost Granville where they had polled 70.2% at the preceding election in 1930. […]
Observing controversy about The Australian‘s ‘outing’ of Canberra blogger Grog’s Gamut. I have read a great deal of current and 1930s political journalism and that of the 1930s mostly was better.
