We’ve previously noted that the Liberal candidate up against Bill Shorten in the seat of Maribyrnong has a fair bit of pluck, regularly setting up his street stall in front of the Labor leader’s office in his attempt to put in a good show in the face of an 11% margin. A tipster sent us this photo of one of Ted Hatzakortzian’s billboards — on the side of a disused, vandalised petrol station. It’s not great symbolism, but we love the well-taken photo (check the reflection in the puddle).

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.
