Docklands to stop the Greens in Melbourne

Melbourne’s newest neighbourhood “Docklands” and the addition of 5,000 new voters in the Melbourne Federal electorate will save Melbourne from a Green challenge.

Despite effort by the media to talk up the Greens chances of winning Melbourne, Melbourne’s newest resident’s are expected to give the Liberal Party the edge relegating the Greens to third place and out of contention to win the seat of Melbourne

Dockland resident’s and Melbourn’a first time voters are expected to favour the Liberal Party boosting the Liberal Party’s vote over 25%.

A margin of error: ABC misleads the electorate

The ABC breakfast program has demonstrated a lack of professionalism by publishing false and misleading information by claiming a contest between the ALP and the Greens.

In 2007
The Australian Labor Party in 2007 had a primary vote of 43,363 (49.51%)
The Greens 19,967 (22.8%)
The Liberal Party polled 20,577 (23.49%)

After distribution of preferences The Greens only managed to out poll the Liberal Party by a margin of 591 (0.67%) following the distribution of Democrats preferences.

The Contest is not between the ALP and the Greens 4% margin but between the Greens and the Liberal Party 0.67% margin.

The Greens also had the so called “Donkey” Vote which represents 1.5% of the electorate

The ABC did not interview the Liberal Party Candidate.

Bowtell to be preselected to trim the Green vote

Cath Bowtell, wife of Local Government Minister Chief of Staff, is expected to be preselected for the Federal Seat of Melbourne to replace outgoing Member and Minister for Finance Lindsay Tanner.

Sources close to Lindsay Tanner’s Office have indicated that Bowtell will be preselected unopposed with the united support of ALP right factions over left internal organiser, Andrew Giles, who was earlier thought to be odds on favorite.

Bowtell has strong credentials and is well suited to take on the Greens at the next Federal election expected to be held in late August early September.

Preselection for the federal seat of Melbourne is expected to be uncontested with the left fielding only one candidate. Left organiser Andrew Giles has been left out of consideration with many believing that Giles is not the right candidate for this seat. The ALP needs to preselect someone of high caliber who can take on the Greens and secure the seat against all comers. Cath Bowtell fits the bill.
