Higgins By-election Results!

It’s bloody tense in Higgins, and the outcome is far from being certain.

Leading the pack at the moment is Steve Raskovy (One Nation) with 199 votes; followed by Peter Brohier on 221; then Robert Isaacs (Liberal Democrats) on 310.

Updates to follow!

    In the meantime, an interview that Cam recorded with a secret Liberal Party source last Friday 27/11/09 for the SUWA show on 3CR 855 AM is available for your listening appreciation here.

What does it all mean? Obviously, that the voting public of Higgins are (like the Liberal party) half-Liberal, one-third Green, a little bit democratic, and not very sexy. Oh, and congratulations to RASKOVY, Steve on coming last first!

    I can’t find it online, but there’s a brief article on page 2 of the Sunday Herald Sun today about posters exhorting the citizens of the Higgins electorate to shoot politicians on sight should they see any lurking about schoolyards this weekend.

    They took a picture of one of the posters and it was the only one used in the story about the by-election…hahahaha

    There were other posters I saw in the area, one said; Politician are Bastards – Don’t encourage them: Vote Informal

    But of course the Herald Scum went for the more extreme option.
