Federal Newspoll Records Page "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Introduction (June 2018)

This weekend, the Coalition government under PM Malcolm Turnbull trailed on two-party preferred vote for a 34th consecutive Newspoll, an all-time outright record.

As there has been so much interest in federal Newspoll records this year I thought I would start a Newspoll records page, a resource page which I will update and expand as time permits.  Some of the material has previously been published on the Newspoll Wikipedia page, which I fixed up after finding it contained a large number of errors caused by confusion between satisfaction scores and Better Prime Minister.

Suggestions for new categories are welcome, as are corrections.

This may seem like a very nerdy cricket-statsy kind of page full of numbers without much connection to what they mean.  If there is a conclusion I wish to be drawn from all this it is that drawing predictive conclusions from record feats in Newspoll is difficult.  The records are awash with cases of impressive results polled by leaders who turned out to be flops, and poor results polled by leaders who were unexpected winners.  As I commence this page (June 2018) it's especially important to note that changes in Newspoll methods have made long runs of similar results more likely, and dramatic poll-to-poll swings less so.  (This made PM Turnbull's choice of consecutive 2PP losses as a metric to justify removing PM Abbott especially unwise.)  As a result there are three currently ongoing record streaks, probably the most important of which favours Labor while two others favour the Coalition.  

History

The first Newspoll was released in November 1985.  In the early days Newspoll's regular federal series polled just primary votes for the parties and the satisfaction ratings of the leaders individually.  Better Prime Minister (often called "preferred prime minister" was polled in the leadup to the 1987 and 1990 elections, and then continuously from July 1991 (except possibly for three polls in July-August 1994, for which data are not on the old Newspoll site.)

Two-party preferred (2PP) estimates were published during campaigns from 1993 onwards, and then continuously from Nov-Dec 2002 onwards.  For other Newspolls it is possible to construct 2PP estimates using the primaries and the preference flows from previous elections, but because of rounding issues these are not necessarily exactly the same as the numbers Newspoll would have go...

NATION: Can Trumps farcical Singapore Summit alert us to dangers we face in our own democracy? "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

A new story, a new beginning, one of peace. Two men, two leaders, one destiny. A story in a special moment in time. When a man is presented with one chance that may never be repeated, what will he choose? High-tech-sci-fi labs, fast trains and a slam-dunking basketballer flit across the screen as a bizarre, four minute US mobile-propaganda-video, set to a dramatic musical score, fires our national and international imagination this week

June 15 #OnThisDay in #Australian #History "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

1795 -  Captain William Paterson tattled to the Home Office in London that there were now 400 settlers, with their families, on land extending 30 miles along both banks of the Hawkesbury River

1795 - Collins referred to the hostilities at the Hawkesbury as an open war between the settlers and the Darug, who carried off the ripe corn in blankets and nets. William Rowe and his son were killed at Richmond Hill. Within a few weeks five people have been killed and several wounded, Colonel Paterson advises London.
Paterson, who had led expeditions against the Hottentots at the Cape of Good Hope, despatched 60 New South Wales Corps troops from Parramatta to the Hawkesbury River. They were ordered to destroy as many as they could meet of the wood tribe (Be-dia-gal); and in the hope of striking terror, to erect gibbets in different places, whereon the bodies of all they might kill were to be hung.
In Sydney, Pemulwuy, or some of his party wounded a convict near the Brickfield Village huts.

1798 - The Norfolk, a sloop built on Norfolk Island, arrived at Port Jackson.
This may not excite you but the convicts were simply overjoyed!

1804 - The Sullivan Cove settlement wasn't happy with it's title so it changed into something more comfortable, Hobart Town.

1821 - Alexander McDonald of the Field of Mars received permission to cut 10,000 feet of cedar and employ David Anderson, William Davis, free, James Perry, T of L, and William Clarke, prisoner.

1838 - Bryant Flannigan was hanged at Sydney for the murder of John Nagle, "Big Mary" Nagle and Patrick Riley at Bunbejong, near Mudgee.

1838 - Daniel Maloney was hanged at Sydney for the murder of Thomas Mahoney at Hassan's Walls.

1838 - Dennis Haberlin (Haverden) was hanged at Sydney for robbery at the house of John and Sarah Rawles and the attempted rape of Sarah Rawles, at Woodford Bay, Longueville.

1838 - Thomas Ribbands was hanged at Sydney for putting in fear and burglary from the house of Ann Jones, at Taree. Ann's husband John had been stabbed to death by one of their servants, Edward Tufts, earlier that year.

1839 - NSW was getting too big for it's boots so it pushed the boundaries out to include "portions of NZ that The Crown might acquire". So shove over and give us room to stick our aching feet in your hot springs.

1843 - The first elections for the NSW Legislative Council were held.

1845 - The Mitchell River, in QLD discovered explorer Ludwig Leichhardt.

1862 - 150 years ago saw the largest gold robbery in Oz history when that gang of naughty lads Frank Gardiner, Ben Hall, Johnny Gilbert and Dan Charters held up the Lachlan Gold Escort at Eugowra Rocks.

1874 - Brisvegas's first 'permanent'...

Is it Time to Boycott Woolworths? "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

I have spent more than a decade working in social justice advocacy. I dont like boycotts.  They are a blunt instrument. I  wonder however if we have not reached the time that a boycott is the only thing that will speak loudly enough  to shame Woolworths into action on its despicable poker machine practices.

Fact 1.   Woolworths is the majority owner (75%) of Australian Leisure and Hospitality Group (ALH), which  in turn owns around 400 pubs  across Australia, making it the largest poker machine licence holder in Australia.

Fact 2.  ALH whistleblowers have been revealing the most predatory and exploitative practices imaginable to fleece people of their money.  The latest example is a  woman whose parents had died and was in a state of grief. Staff were encouraged to  make almost any accommodation towards her in order to get her to  stay at the machines gambling away her inheritance.

Fact 3.  The clubs and hotels industry is proving to be an extraordinarily powerful lobby group, that Tim Costello has likened to the National Rifle Association in the United States.   A report in todays Sydney Morning Herald stated

Obedient politicians enjoy donations, opponents are savaged, as the Tasmanian Labor Party was during the recent state election. The huge campaign run against Labor which planned to remove pokies from the states pubs served not only to assist the Liberal Party over the line, but to warn any other politician around the country of what they might face should they dare challenge the industry.

It seems that neither the board of Woolworths nor our state parliaments are willing to tackle this issue. Woolworths spend millions of dollars every year trying to convince us to shop at their grocery stores rather than Coles or Aldi. Perhaps its time for us consumers to take this issue  into our hands and let the board of Woolworths know that until they clean up their poker machine  practices they have lost us as customers.

(March 28, 12.00pm update to original article from this point on)

The difficulty with this is that none of the major grocery chains in Australia is perfectly ethical across all its business.  Coles also owns poker machines, as does Metcash, which is the parent body for IGA, although the Metcash holding is small.

ALDI dont hold poker machines and compared to the...
