Werriwa byelection – A note

In other news, Labor easily won the Werriwa by-election. In a field of no less than 16 candidates, Chris Hayes got over 55% of all primary votes (70% on 2-party preferred), despite all the predictions of voter apathy and a high informal vote. Even the local DJ promising free beer only got 2%. I’m beginning to conclude pre-election pundits are and always will be full of crap. So is Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson – who attributes the result to there being no Coalition candidate, ignoring the fact that a lot of publicity was given to a Liberal party member who ran as an Independent.
