Burning down the house with the mother of all #ausvotes wedges: @Jansant comments

The Liberal Party in Victoria has run a divisive election campaign designed to wedge the vital volunteer emergency service the Country Fire Authority (CFA), creating deep divisions within communities and families.

Some snowy vox pops before the final #Indivotes week of #ausvotes heat: @Jansant reports

Vox pop questions Have you taken an interest in the election campaign? What is the most important election issue to you? Will the CFA dispute impact how you vote?

Oh @MirabellaSophie you have not changed, by @camklose #Indivotes

Disclosure: Campbell Klose was Cathy McGowan’s media advisor at the 2013 election. Cast your mind back, if you will, to the 2007 federal election.
