Labor support sliding, time to panic?


It's time to start worrying.

Labor has lost its substantial two-party preferred lead against the coalition in just two weeks, the latest Newspoll has found. […] The poll, taken between Friday and Sunday, found Labor and the coalition are split 50-50.

Don't get me wrong I'm not a Labor fan (at least not any more), but the prospect of this guy being our PM is absolutely terrifying. We don't need another anti-intellectial theocracy.

From a tech perspective I'm guessing we're screwed either way, unless enough people vote below the line and oust Stephen Conroy, or enough Labor ministers grow spines to stand up against the filter, or enough Greens are elected to put pressure on Labor to straighten up and fly right, or a decent combination of all three.
