Should get back in easily...?
People will vote on local issues. I am a swing voter and we have had a very active MP here in my electorate who has campaigned against the backward plastic trains coming from Korea to replace the v sets. There are also other local issues that won't see a coalition victory any time soon. Education and health are big issues.
Even though the opposition is in disarray, look at their recent electoral performance in Wagga. All this before anyone batters an eyelid at the Caesar politics in Canberra.
No amount of pork barreling and sandbagging in Sydney will turn around voter opinions on local issues. This is why Labor is still governing in Vic.
Gladys should move her ministers to Dubbo for a week. She needs to build a wall around Sydney. Sydney is full. The rest of the state is in need of attention.
