Election diary - Sunday 7 July 2013 - Here come the television ads

Spinning a backflip. The government attempts to pretend that it is finally doing things that will stop the arrival of unwanted visitors by boat go on. This morning was the "news" that boat people arriving without papers would be placed at the end of the processing queue.



Which is hardly a deterrent really. As Father Frank Brennan, a long time friend of PM Kevin Rudd, told Meet the Press this morning:
The talk about putting people at the back of the queue God help us, it's just a beat up.Obviously where you have got a big backlog people who have already got documents, of course you will be able to process them quickly those who don't have documents you will still have to wait.
Labor leads off with the ads. And I'll leave the commenting to Sarah Hanson-Young of the Greens.




Kevin sets the record straight. The Prime Minister takes to Instagram and gets his challenge message over again:


The story of the day. From the No Fibs website comes a story to take the gloss off Tony Abbott's day: Abbott forced to repay $9,400 he charged taxpayers to promote his book.
Or perhaps I should say that it's a story that should take the gloss off Tony Abbott's day. The social media is full of it but nothing on the main media websites yet that I have noticed.

Movement towards Coalition continues. An opinion poll free day but the Crikey Indicator keeps moving towards the Coalition.
