Crikey has been following the fliers, brochures and letters sent by political candidates and parties this election. Here are the latest, received in Victoria and WA:

ALA has facts. Look at them! Facts!

While we are past the halfway point of the election campaign, the number of flyers received by voters from political parties now includes a new player — the Australian Liberty Alliance. The ALA’s main policy is stopping “the Islamisation of Australia” and even includes a very official-looking pie graph that says that 50% of Australians “think ‘an increase in Muslim migrants’ has been bad or very bad for Australia”. The statistics all have an asterisk next to them, but we’re not sure what that actually refers to.

Meanwhile in Western Australia, the Liberal Party is targeting voters in the new seat of Burt by attacking Labor’s record on asylum seekers. It contrasts Bill Shorten saying “Labor’s policy is clear”, with candidates who have previously expressed issues with the way asylum seekers are treated.

I subscribe to Crikey because I believe in a free, open and independent media where news and opinions can be published that I can both agree with and be challenged by.

As a Crikey subscriber I always feel more informed and able to think more critically about issues and current affairs – even when they don’t always reflect my own political viewpoint or lived experience.
