This is really more to stimulate activity.
With David Feeney’s resignation, Batman is now heading for by-election, but no known date yet.
It’s historically a safe Labor seat but is now neck-n-neck with Greens, with Feeney having only retained the seat by preferences. Threat from LNP and Conservatives appears to be of little concern.
Given the audit is done and dusted, and thankfully we passed, should we bother fielding for candidates? Since the favour of Greens is growing in Melbourne area, statistically we might actually get a decent vote, despite likely similarities in policies between Parties.
