    Your previous post was a comment based on speculation. I was posting fact after the election date had been confirmed.

    Hey Kev interesting statistic:
    First time since the 1914 elections we have both PM and leader of the Opposition born overseas!

    Federal elections were held in Australia on 5 September 1914. All 75 seats in the House of Representatives, and all 36 seats in the Senate were up for election in a double dissolution. The incumbent Commonwealth Liberal Party led by Prime Minister of Australia Joseph Cook (born as Joseph Cooke in Silverdale, a small mining town near Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, England). was defeated by the opposition Australian Labor Party led by Andrew Fisher ( born in Crosshouse, a mining village near Kilmaurs, East Ayrshire, Scotland).

    Yes, but I don't think that anyone cares. Bit different from the US where this sort of thing is an automatic disqualifier so they have whole movements of whackos seeking to establish that Obama was born somewhere else.

    Just for the record, I'd suggest that all other things being equal and no major gaffes from either side will see Labor returned with a majority of 8 seats. I believe this might be slightly less than what is currently predicted by Kevin.

    Nope. The extent of my involvement has been to re-enrol in a marginal electorate. Depending on circumstances, I might be providing impartial and non-partisan assistance to voters on behalf of the Australian Electoral Commission on Election Day.

    OK, that reduces the likelihood of major Labor gaffes.
