DAN ILIC’s GUIDE TO THE ELECTION: #C@%TASTROPHE2013

Over the last few weeks I’ve been creating stories for The Feed on SBS2 around the circus of electapoolooza 2013.

Here there are as a triptych so you can elect your balls away….

THREE WORD SLOGANS

THE RACE FOR MIDDLE AUSTRALIA

VOTING BELOW THE LINE

(And before you all go banging on about it… 1) yes it is very Brooker. 2) Yes in middle australia the dark patch on my face swaps sides… why? because i’m unco and can’t do left right things in mirror.. so I flopped the shot for you nufties. 3) Apparently you can vote below the line.. and above the line just incase you stuff up below the line… don’t take my word for it here’s Antony Green “If you want to be ultra safe, fill in below the line and the fill in one of the above the line squares. The below the line vote takes priority, but if proves to be informal, the ballot paper will revert to the above the line option.”)

Proof Ed Miliban is a Robot! [VIDEO]

Ed Milibot

 

Ed Miliband went into high PR gear in this interview with ITV’s Damon Green and gave the same answer six times in two minutes to multiple questions… which begs the question. What is Ed Miliband Hiding? Is he a robot?

The original video has now gone viral in political and news circles and is a old testament to that classic PR trick, If you want to get one message out say it as often as you can, that way the media will have no choice but to use what you give them….. unless the media puts it on YouTube. Damon Green later tweeted

“If news reporters and cameras are only there to be used by politicians as recording devices for their scripted soundbites, at best that is a professional discourtesy. At worst, if we are not allowed to explore and examine a politician’s views, then politicians cease to be accountable in the most obvious way. So the fact that the unedited interview has found its way onto YouTube in all its absurdity, to be laughed at along with all the clips of cats falling off sofas, is perfectly proper.”

It’s a womans world. (If you live in Sydney.)

Freelance journalist James West joined all the dots in a Facebook status update for me.

If you live in the City Of Sydney, you are completely governed by women, all the way up the line to the Queen.

So here’s a helpful chart I made.

Print it out and put it on your fridge, next time you get a parking fine why take it to the town hall, when you can lodge it with Buckingham Palace?

(I know that doesn’t really make any sense, but it’s a nice turn of phrase)

And incase you missed it yesterday, here’s a new profile picture to celebrate Australia’s first female Prime Minister.
