Poll relativities and the state of New South Wales

How the federal pollsters are differing, and an update on New South Wales by-elections likely to be held on February 12.

Past time for a new thread, though inevitably given the time of year there is not a lot to report. Polling fans might care to take note of Mark the Ballot’s latest update of a poll aggregate that tracks a three-point increase in the “others” vote over the past six months of last year, which came cleanly at the expense of the Coalition, and a neat display of pollster house effects that calibrates what close observers will have already noticed: that Resolve Strategic is (relatively speaking) high for “others” and low for Labor, Essential Research is high for both major parties, and Roy Morgan is high for the Greens.

Then there’s the New South Wales state by-elections, which deserves a thread of its own but won’t get one until the date is formally announced. The Speaker, Jonathan O’Dea, has strongly indicated it will be February 12. A milestone was reached last week when four of the departing MPs finally lodged their formal resignations. Not among them was Holsworthy MP Melanie Gibbons holding out until she is confirmed as the federal candidate for Hughes, if indeed that occurs. That leaves:

Strathfield (Labor 5.0%): Both parties now have candidates in place for the seat being vacated by Jodi McKay. Labor’s is Jason Yat-Sen Li, a former lawyer who worked for a time for the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and is now executive chairman of Vantage Asia Holdings. Yat-Sen Li was Labor’s candidate for Bennelong in 2013 third on the Senate ticket in 2019. The Liberal candidate is Bridget Sakr, who has gained prominence as a victims support advocate after her daughter and three of her cousins were killed in a car crash in Oatlands in February last year.

Bega (Liberal 6.9%): The Liberal candidate to succeed Andrew Constance is Fiona Kotvojs, a beef farmer who has twice been narrowly unsuccessful as the Liberal candidate for Eden-Monaro: in 2019, when she fell 0.8% short of unseating Mike Kelly, and at the by-election following Kelly’s retirement in July 2020, when Kristy McBain retained the seat for Labor by 0.4%. Labor’s candidate is Michael Holland, an obstetrician-gynaecologist at Moruya District Hospital and lecturer at the Australian National University medical school.

Monaro (Nationals 11.6%): The Nationals have had their candidate to succeed John Barilaro in place since October: Nichole Overall, a local historian, communications consultant and freelance writer. Conversely, Labor initially planned to forfeit before a rebellion by local party branches prompted a change of heart.

Willoughby (Liberal 21.0%): The Liberals are yet to conduct a preselection that has attracted three candidates: Willoughby mayor Gail Giles-Gidney, who is reportedly backed by Gladys Berejiklian, Paul Fletcher and Andrew Bragg; former television journalist Kellie Sloane, who is backed by Mike Baird; and Menzies Research Centre executive general manager Tim James, a factional conservative. Labor will not contest the seat, and in the absence of a strong independent emerging, of which I’ve seen no indication, the winner should have an easy time of it.

  1. Just FYI

    SteelyDan it was NSW WHO wanted to open up because the economy and it looked bad for LIBERALS AND SCOMO.

    Also Fed Libs pushes the county to open and refuse to lockdown ever again or wanted any restrictions

    Ya fuxkwit.

  2. Should we take bets on Tim James being the Liberal candidate in Willoughby? He ticks all the right boxes:
    – white male
    – from the ‘conservative’ faction

  4. Australia will “ride the wave” of Omicron as record daily coronavirus cases overwhelm hospitals and testing sites, with Prime Minister Scott Morrison declaring the nation has no choice but to press on as he confirmed major changes to pandemic testing.

    About 6.6 million Australians will be eligible for 10 free rapid antigen tests over three months, but national cabinet chose not to make them free for everyone, in part due to concerns about the strain on a stretched transport network.

    More than 64,700 people tested positive for coronavirus in Australia on Wednesday as Victoria cancelled elective surgery, 50 medical staff tested positive at one hospital in Hobart, and testing sites were shut around the nation in the morning. Experts predict cases will continue to surge and may be as much as 10 times higher than official figures.

    “We have no choice but to ride the wave. What’s the alternative? What we must do is press on,” Mr Morrison told reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

    https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/free-rapid-antigen-tests-for-four-million-eligible-australians-but-others-pay-20220105-p59m3x.html

    Well he’s right about that. Thanks to him and his government’s incompetence, actively abetted by Perrottet’s arrogance and ignorance, we now have no choice but to ‘ride the wave’.

    The choices we could’ve made way back when to procure vaccines, roll the program out efficiently and effectively, procure RATs and have these available free to the public for use, keep public health measures in place to slow (even stop) the spread of infection, and stage the reopening of our borders have now long passed.

  5. Reminder
    Morrison lies will not stop , he tried to blame the Victorian government yesterday
    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2022/jan/05/novak-djokovics-australian-open-participation-in-doubt-over-visa-row

    “The federal government has asked if we will support Novak Djokovic’s visa application to enter Australia,” Pulford said. “We will not be providing Novak Djokovic with individual visa application support to participate in the 2022 Australian Open grand slam [tournament]. We’ve always been clear on two points: visa approvals are a matter for the federal government, and medical exemptions are a matter for doctors.”

  6. As the smoke clears at Old Parliament House, there’s glimmers of hope from the blackened wreckage

    […] the doors, built in the 1920s from solid jarrah timber, may well be salvaged thanks to old-school craftsmanship.

    “We had thought that they’d completely gone, and the conservators came and had a look and because of the construction and age of the doors, they’ve actually got four layers of jarrah, and [only] the outside layers are completely charred,” Ms Gwynn said.

    She said if the doors had been constructed in recent decades, with a more streamlined design, or even a different timber, it’s likely they would not have withstood the flames.

  7. Morning all. With covid rampant in NSW and the state bi-elections approaching, are any of the seats now in the contestable range? Scomo dropping Novak like a hot spud illustrates he realises public sentiment is hostile. Omicron Dom surely faces a backlash?

  8. In a separate issue that complicated his arrival, acting Victorian Sports Minister Jaala Pulford said Australian Border Force officials contacted the state government hours before Djokovic landed. The 20-time grand slam winner was attempting to enter the country on a visa that did not permit medical exemptions for being unvaccinated, a source briefed on the matter told The Age and the Herald.

    As a result, Ms Pulford said Border Force sought Victorian government support to facilitate Djokovic’s entry. The federal agency asked for the Andrews government’s support because Victoria partners with Tennis Australia in running the event that Djokovic’s visa pertains to. Victorian officials asked the federal authorities to put their request in writing and Ms Pulford said the request to sponsor Djokovic’s visa was rejected.

    COVID-19 cases are climbing in NSW aged care facilities, with concerns about infection control, staffing shortages and the mental health of locked-down residents as the sector struggles to provide care in the Omicron surge.

    There were 652 active COVID-19 cases in residents of NSW aged care facilities by Tuesday, an increase of nearly 100 in four days.

    This to me screams fed involvement in trying to get him to play, then blame the state (being a labor state).

  11. No matter what happens now even if Djokovic is deported , Morrison and his cronies must explain why they and Border Force allowed Djokovic onto the plane to come to Australia in the first place

  12. One more comment on the submarine saga, based on my holiday reading: there is an amazing disconnect in “expert” opinion pieces on nuclear submarines between the cost (everyone says it will be higher) and the choice of submarine (lots of the defense fanboys want us to get the latest greatest sub, the US Virginia Block 5).

    This article by government funded think tank ASPI is a good example. It completely ignores cost in recommending the US sub.
    https://www.aspistrategist.org.au/implementing-australias-nuclear-submarine-program/

    Yet the cost differences between the options are huge – tens of billions. The current costs per sub are Astute A$2.6 billion each, Virginia Block 4 A$3.9 billion each, Virginia Block 5 A$4.8 billion each, Shortfin Barracuda A$7.4 billion each. There would be additional costs to set up nuclear sub construction and inspection infrastructure (billions) and operating costs for 30 years each ($200 million per sub or approx $2 billion per year x 30 years. The US boats have the largest crews and so highest operating cost as well as higher capital cost than the UK subs. Overall the UK subs are cheaper by $20+ billion to buy and $10+ billion over 30 years to operate.

    So you can see where this is headed. All options are expensive but some are far more expensive than others. The difference between the latest, greatest US subs and the (still more than adequate and easier to build locally) UK subs is $30+ billion – literally enough to fund the NDIS.

    (The price of the French boats had become absurd and I only included them for purposes of comparison. Naval Group was charging Australia more per sub to build diesel Attack Class than they charged the French government to build their nuclear subs).

    For comparison, lest people criticise them too much, the Collins Class subs cost $850 million each in 1999, or about $1.5 billion each in 2022 dollars. So important to note the real cost of building subs ourselves last time was actually cheaper than all current options. Hence don’t let anyone say Australia is “too expensive”. So is every other western nation when it comes to building submarines.

    Have a good day all.

  24. Having been involved in a similar (but not identical – fewer $m involved) case, I suspect that the problem for the Brat king of tennis is the ATAGI requirement for PCR proof of COVID within 6 months as the “medical” exemption. Unless Djokovic has been reinfected, his last PCR positive test was 23/06/21 – more than six months ago. Scummo’s stuffed this one too.
