As Victoria goes to the polls to hopefully start the clean out of Lib Governments, I thought it was timely that we do our end of year vote on where you would like our kitty to go too this year.
Thank you to all the people that have donated their winnings this year.
The total amount will be revealed in 2 weeks time which will be our Final raffle night for 2014.
Once we get a winner from the above poll we then will go into the second round to decide a overall recipient.
Every one gets 1 vote only. lurkers please vote as well
Saying that It is still ” RAFFLE NIGHT” so get your numbers from Ticket-master CK .
Good Luck For Labor in Vic. Tomorrow.
As always, Have A Great Night.

Yeah, it looks like Labor’s currently trailing by 1300 votes in Morwell, and there’s not nearly enough remaining to close that gap.
Damn, we were so close. Oh well, there might be a chance to snatch it back in 2018. Andrews will hopefully run an excellent government worthy of a strong re-election.
It would also help us immensely if the Nats don’t learn anything from what is a truly awful result for them.
Pity about Morewell. Andrews comes across as a proper leader and therefore his government should be well run. Much depends on whether he has the team to back him up, i.e. no termites to undermine and cause dissent in the ranks.
I seriously doubt Andrews will have any problems with termites. He made history on Saturday, and we’ve had both a federal and state examples of what happens to governments when they change leaders in the first term.
And then there’s the opposition. This is the end of the moderate Liberals in Victoria and it’s going to be filled with Kroger’s reactionary madmen, IPA agents and rich bully boys thinking they’ve done enough time as footsoldiers in the Young Liberal Korps to get a seat, so Labor must not fight itself when there’s people like that that would fill the vacuum very quickly and ruin the state.
I have to say I’m disappointed about Morwell, but as you say, next time.
I’m also a bit nervous about Frankston now. Apparently they’re counting the votes all over again, and it got as narrow as 50.3/49.7 to Labor. Bentleigh looks a bit uncomfortable too.
But still, Labor’s got at least 47 seats no matter what. It held that amount in 1988 and lasted the term. And before that it only had 48 seats in 1985.
Oh wait, it held 46 seats in 1988, 47 in 1985. Still, narrow majorities have been proven to be workable in Victoria, a government doesn’t really need to have more than 50 to be comfortable.
Although for various reason the psephs don’t give much credit to Morgan, there is an interesting trend, which I’d doubt is wrong.
That is the LNP is further behind at federal level than Napthine’s government was. That suggests a deeper malaise than suspected.

Good to see our neighbours taking an interest.
Bob McMullen, remember him?
Here is an interview he did with Monica Attard in Feb 2010 after he announced he would not be contesting the upcoming election. Rudd was still PM. An interesting read.
