Yesterday we wrote that a voter in Goldstein had not seen a single corflute in her seat, and now we have received an offer from the Greens candidate in the electorate, Cheryl Hercus, who says she is happy supply a corflute to anyone who wants one: “I would be more than happy to supply one of my corflutes to your reader if she would like one. We will even attach it to her fence, or on a stake in her garden.”

Hercus says she’s even had good feedback from Liberal voters:

“Sure, it’s hard being up against ‘Freedom Boy’, but we’ve been putting up Greens placards for weeks. So far have place around 30. And the response on the ground when handing out flyers is good. I’ve had many a liberal voter tell me they’re not happy with the Liberals move to the right and won’t be voting for Tim.

“Not under any false illusions of beating him, but the Green vote will go up, as it will in Higgins and Kooyong.”

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.
