How will a Stalinist, a Satanist and a KKK member vote?

Born of a need to fill space and a sick fetish for alliteration, canvassing voters in marginal electorates is easy. What's trickier is canvassing voters in the margins of society. To this end, Cam Smith went looking for a Satanist, a Stalinist and a National Socialist to see which way the truly marginal would be voting.

There’s allegedly an election coming up. The regrettable consequence of which is that newspaper editors suddenly care about the opinions of people in wishy-washy electorates like McMillan and Eden-Monaro. If the names and occupations of those people start with the same letter as their electoral division, so much the better – Oh, Benny the Butcher from Bennelong is concerned about housing prices and rising inflation! How dreadfully clever. Born of a need to fill space and a sick fetish for alliteration, canvassing voters in marginal electorates is easy. What’s trickier is canvassing voters in the margins of society. To this end, Crikey went looking for a Satanist, a Stalinist and a National Socialist to see which way the truly marginal would be voting.

Malaphite X (not what her mum calls her) worships the Dark Lord Satan. As such, she told Crikey at around midnight last night, it follows that she would vote for John Howard.
