Vote to make seats marginal


Dear Editor,

An important decision is facing Murray Valley voters.

Do I support the political party which I and my parents have supported for generation­s?

The conservati­ve parties have deserted us, so we need to desert them.

If the lunatics were not running the asylum, would we have things like the stripping of irrigation water from our irrigation districts, gender fluidity and the green religion taught in schools, closing reliable coal fired power stations in favour of unreliable and intermitte­nt solar and wind, and breastfeed­ing nurses sacked because they called mothers, mothers. The list is endless and we hate it.

We urge voters to make the seats of Mallee, Nicholls and Farrer marginal, we have been totally ignored for too long.

In Farrer, our local member has been in parliament for the duration of the water debacle and has not raised a finger in dissent.

She must bear responsibi­lity for the outcome we have had to endure.

Couple that with the appalling destructio­n of the river channel which she totally ignores.

Please don’t give her your vote. We urge voters along the Murray Valley to put the major parties in the last three places, with the independen­ts and minor parties ahead of them in the order that you decide.

Palmer is the only one that talks about repaying our enormous government debt, the Liberal Democrats have really good policies as has One Nation, who are also very knowledgea­ble and supportive on water issues.

In Mallee, we believe Sophie Baldwin to be an excellent candidate.

Voters may say “we need to support a conservati­ve candidate”, but it didn’t do us any good in the 2019 election.

Vote for self interest, somebody who will support their electorate and not the political machine.

Meanwhile the politician­s from the government are running around throwing money at marginal electorate­s trying to buy votes with taxpayers money.

They take us for idiots that can be bought.

Yours etc. Ron and Val McWhae
