Local campaign more than a match for the Tories

The Liberals appear to have been outmatched locally in both Griffith and Moreton in the first week of the campaign, by the tremendous efforts of ALP branch members and volunteers, it has been claimed.

Locally, the Annerley Branch has successfully staffed more locations than the Liberal Party, with street stalls held across Annerley, Fairfield and Tarragindi.

Annerley ALP branch secretary, Rod Beisel, observed that the Liberals were simply struggling to keep up with the pace of the local campaign.

"The Liberals seem to be finally putting up a fight, but the momentum is definitely behind both Labor campaigns for Griffith and Moreton", he said. "Also pleasing is that the response from voters has been at the same positive level as 2007".

Street stalls will continue up until polling day - Saturday 21 August.


  1. Hey the Liberals are out where I live, but they arent getting a good response from my neighbourhood. :)

  2. And not in my neighbourhood either. Probably doesn't help that their candidate Malcolm Cole doesn't live in the electorate.
