The Liberal Party has got in early with tipsters in electorates across Australia getting in touch to let us know they have already received letters from Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull endorsing their local MP or candidate. The letter from Turnbull says, “in this very uncertain world, Australia needs political stability and a strong economic plan for jobs and families”.

One tipster has shared their letter endorsing Freedom Boy Tim Wilson, replacing Trade Minister Andrew Robb in the seat of Goldstein.

Voters in Goldstein also got Robb’s endorsement of Wilson, as the former trade minister passed the torch of the safe seat in Melbourne’s leafy beachside suburbs. The letter reminds voters what Robb has achieved:

As a Crikey subscriber and someone who began working as a journalist in 1957, I am passionate about the importance of independent media like Crikey. I met a lot of Australians from many walks of life during my career and did my best to share their stories honestly and fairly with their fellow citizens.

And I never forgot how important it is to hold politicians to account. Crikey does that – something that is more important now than ever before in Australia.
