HEADING TOWARD polling day tomorrow, this evening we are doing things a little differently; following the endorsement provided for the Coalition in this column this morning, tonight’s “article” is in video format: talking about the likely movement from state to state, and providing an estimate of the likely overall result. This is the first time we have used a video format in this column, and reader feedback is welcome.
Despite the fact I’m still not 100% recovered, I made good on my threat this afternoon to record a video comment to discuss the state-by-state movements I expect to see tomorrow; do excuse the fact I’m still coughing, and please excuse the excessive “ums” and “ahs:” as often as not, these are merely to try to ward off the coughing fits that the latest “import” from my son’s day care centre has been inflicting.
This is an experimental post for this column; it is hard to believe that five years since I started publishing content here, this is a format that hasn’t been used to date.
As such, the amateur nature of the production is evident: whilst I have access to media production partners for a fee, the rest of the time I’m just another private publisher of comment, and in this case, it probably shows.
I’ve tried to keep this fairly light — eschewing too much fine detail, such as digging into the minutiae of dozens of individual seats — but of course those readers who want to go down that track should feel quite free to do so.
I will be posting further opinion (of the written variety) either overnight or tomorrow morning, but in the meantime, any comments on this sally into video commentary would be most welcome.
One day to go — and the attached video also includes my tip for the outcome.
