Candidates Directory


November 16, 2007
Senate Candidates Linkfest

Mainland eastern states only. I suppose it's possible I'll be bored enough over the weekend to do the others, but I doubt it.

But it looks prettier here than on the board.


NSW:

A - LIBERAL/NATIONALS

B - CITIZENS ELECTORAL COUNCIL (Yay! LaRouchies!)

C - FAMILY FIRST

D - PAULINE (another little ego trip for Hanson)

E - CLIMATE CHANGE COALITION

F - SOCIALIST ALLIANCE

G - THE GREENS

H - WHAT WOMEN WANT {AUSTRALIA}

I - LIBERTY and DEMOCRACY PARTY (sodding Electoral Commission wouldn't let them call themselves the Liberal Democratic Party. We could have had a real LDP, just like Sweden, Japan, the UK and Russia.)

J - UNTITLED (SECULAR PARTY of AUSTRALIA)

K - HEAR OUR VOICE (GLBT party)
Micro parties offer a diversity of philosophical choices, ranging from socialism to libertarianism. They represent everyone from dope smokers to sporting shooters, from opponents of immigration to supporters of carers. Yet they face considerable difficulty getting their messages heard. Earlier this year, for instance, a newly formed micro party, Hear Our Voice, had a policy launch in Canberra. The news media who turned up included a Herald photographer and a local commercial TV crew. But before the TV crew finished unpacking their gear, a call from their news editor redirected them to a nearby house fire.
