Are we there yet? There’s one thing driving Bennelong voters mad

John Alexander cut a lonely figure out the back of West Ryde shops, gazing upon the ugly concrete plaza on the first Saturday of the Bennelong byelection campaign. I thought we should say “Hi”.

Accompanied by my 12-year-old son, we asked Mr Alexander about an issue that bothered my child. Whether we agreed with his argument or not, it was a good start. We were going to talk about issues this campaign.

We were going to unearth some fresh ideas to solve the first-world problems so prevalent in our electorate. How would our children ever afford university and a house? Or even one of those? Why are children excluded from the local school because the catchments are so badly skewed? Will the NBN work when it eventually gets here? Will the overcrowded, late, half-cancelled buses get me home in time for dinner with my family? Ever? Can anyone afford to have two parents working when childcare costs are through the roof? Can they afford not to?

At worst, we would get promised a heap of good stuff as each party desperately tried to buy our vote. I would hear the magic words “working families” every day.

But something went horribly wrong on the way to the ballot box.

The next day, the first robopoll call came. It felt like a Labor push-poll as one of the questions asked: ‘Which issue are you most concerned about? Press 1 for cuts to this. Press 2 for cuts to that, and so on.”

Then came a robocall from Mr Alexander. Then another poll. After about five calls I lost count.

Instead of smart ideas and promises – save for a bus interchange and a new high school that both parties had previously promised in some guise at state level – we have had to suffer a campaign of each party endlessly criticising the other party or candidate. Every. Single. Day. And mostly at dinner time via robocalls. Never mind they are cannibalising state promises: the federal government holds the purse strings.

“You can’t trust Malcolm Turnbull with (insert talking point du jour here)”, repeats Labor candidate Kristina Keneally. A colleague reports she has had daily robocalls from Labor, all slamming Turnbull. Possibly this is unwise, as the first poll, despite it showing rising support for Keneally, also showed 59.7 per cent of Bennelong electors picked Mr Turnbull as preferred prime minister compared to just 40.3 for Bill Shorten.

“Don’t let Kristina Keneally do to Bennelong what she did to NSW,” repeats John Alexander’s mouthpiece for the day. Last week it was Premier Gladys Berejiklian on the robocall. On Tuesday it was Julie Bishop at a press conference. On Tuesday at 6.37pm, John Howard was on the robocall telling me something about stability or predictability. I was still on my bus. It was 48 minutes late. (By the way, if the Premier wants to ring me again, I want to talk about public transport, not Kristina Keneally.)
