It’s August 9

The Northern Territory election, that is. One day after the thought of a poll entered my consciousness, courtesy of Antony Green, Chief Minister Paul Henderson has sprung it on even earlier than expected – in less than three weeks’ time. The previous election was on 18 June 2005, and the latest possible date for the next one was 27 June 2009. My election guide is, er, not quite ready yet, but hopefully will be in good-ish time before polling day.

  1. Palmerston has three halves…

    the middle, old Palmerston, is blue collar etc and housing commission socio-economic areas, which is also mostly Blain.
    Ironically? actually supporting the incumbancy factor, the seat is held by the CLP.

    The two surrounding halves are private home and defence force housing, especially Durack in Drysdale and Gunn in Brennan.

    In those seats its big mortgages and manicured lawns with house prices 500k plus.
