Indi Liberal Party candidate Steve Martin’s belief in the science behind human-induced climate change is in serious doubt after giving a series of conflicting answers to questions on the issue as the federal election approaches.

Rural #IndiVotes says end the blame game for #ClimateElection: @kateauty #StopPrayingForRain

For those who still think our rural community of Indi is asleep on a slow train to a washed-out railway bridge, I suggest that the activity in the streets and halls all over the place should be arresting. In the main shopping strip of Euroa, on Tuesday evening this week, cattle farmers, woolgrowers, lamb producers, […]

Cathy McGowan reflects on community politics: @jansant #IndiVotes #podcast

Hi, I’m Wayne Jansson and this is a Margo Kingston’s No Fibs podcast.

We have acted in parliament on many issues since those very first ‘Kitchen Table Conversations’ in Indi. In 2013 they […]

The #AusVotes preference system or choosing sides when your team can’t make the Grand Final: @adropex stops #ShoutingAtTheTV and comments

The closest I have come to an election campaign was handing out How-to-Vote cards in the Victorian state election last year, but I must admit to being an interested observer of #Auspol since the 2013 federal election which saw a local independent unseat a major party incumbent in the hitherto safe Liberal seat of Indi. […]

The @NoFibs #IndependentsDay Twitter mission at #ausvotes: @margokingston1 comments

The way I see it, every safe Coalition seat must be in play in the sense that quality indies ask tough questions incumbents are forced to answer. That requires courageous indies & committed, creative citizens because a weakened local media can’t do it. Ready to play? #ausvotes — Margo Kingston (@margokingston1) February 22, 2019 Hi. […]
