The Marginal Seat

Where I live its state election time, where we get to choose who will help lead our state, sadly my seat is a marginal seat so the two leading groups are flogging us with their dribble, and the real bad thing is our main choices are Dumb, dumber,  who and what! Let say ‘Dumb’ is our incumbent member for Labor or ‘Keep Verity’ as she is campaigning and her biggest challenger ‘Dumber’ in the Green corner Jamie “Snake Oil Salesman” Parker, but let not forget the dark sheep of this marginal seat sitting in the Blue corner falling in the ‘Who’ category is James “Why Bother Campaigning’ Falk and the ‘What’ category is for all the leftovers who kindly put up the hand that usually only make up a couple of percent of the total votes, god bless them, gotta love the little guys. Anyhow Labour, the Greens and even the little independents are dumping loads of printed material into our letterbox and guarding the entrance to all our local transport stops so you can’t go anywhere without being accosted, I'm tempted to vote for the Liberal guy just because he hasn’t been attacking my letter box or trying to waylay me on my way to work, good way to save our taxpayer dollar by not printing promotional lies, oops campaign material or slowing my daily commute. Thankfully the election will be over in a few weeks and then it will only be a year or so before all their promotional material and signs have been cleared away, I always love seeing my tax dollars wasted, maybe it time we stop the waste and get rid of state politics altogether.
