    “It is widely famed as one of the most cutting-edge electoral systems of the late nineteenth-century.”

    Following Crikey’s questioning, The Age’s Noel Towell, a member of the questioning panel for the forum, noted that it was “a concern” that what was clearly the highest-spending campaign would or could not give a figure for their spending.

    This is true but it is an issue raised in small print before every City of Melbourne election and indeed in state and Federal elections (remember Malcolm Turnbull hiding how much he personally donated to his campaign as long as legally possible?), and it never becomes an issue because media never follows through on it.
