Tony Abbott head-butter Astro Labe left his mate for dead - Tasmania Coroner's report "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Delightful creature. The failure of those other persons present when Mr Green suffered his injury to more positively act to assess his health state could well therefore have contributed to his death.

Abbott headbutt stops nation. "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Its the head-butt that stops the nation. Tony Abbott is nutted by Astro Funknukl Labe, a 38 year-old North Hobart DJ. Labe, a barista, bartender and post-punk anarchist who bears more than a passing resemblance to The Young Ones Vyvyan Basterd, pretends to shake the former PMs hand Thursday afternoon. Then he head-butts him. All

The Intolerance of Tolerance: Tony Abbotts Head Butt Episode "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

This was a violent and criminal act, nothing whatsoever to do with the point of view of those of us who favour a yes vote. (Senator George Brandis, Australian Attorney-General, Sep 22, 2017). It came, less out of the blue than out of the ether of the expected. A 38 year old North Hobart man

The absurdity of a 25-seat Parliament ... "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Letter to the Editor Matthew Grooms admission that the pressure of several portfolios and the need to balance his family life was too much is an indictment on the absurdity of a 25-seat Parliament

Father of Hare-Clark: Andrew Inglis Clark (1848-1907) "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Father of Federation and of the Hare-Clark voting system ... Barrister, Parliamentarian, Attorney-General, electoral reformer and Constitutionalist The Hare-Clark electoral system, used for Tasmanian Lower House elections, is peculiar to the State and remains relatively unknown in most places of the world.  It has been in use continuously since 1907.  It is interesting to learn the history of the men behind the scenes who forced its adoption, primarily Thomas Hare, an English barrister, and Tasmanian-born Andrew Inglis Clark

Not-A-Poll: Best Prime Minister Of The Last 45 Years "IndyWatch Feed Tas"

Round 1

Now and then we see newspaper polls rating the best PMs of the last few decades, or in the case of one Essential poll last week, the best government of the last ten years.  John Howard is a persistent "winner" of the first class of polling, but I've always believed he has an unfair advantage.  He tends to get a very high share of the Liberal vote with other Liberal PMs hardly getting any, while the Labor vote tends to be split up more between Hawke, Keating, Whitlam, Rudd and Gillard.  For that reason it's not clear whether Howard would beat all the Labor PMs on a head-to-head basis, although it looks like he probably would.


I've decided to run a similar Not-A-Poll exercise here in the sidebar just for fun over a period of several months.  The basic rule is that we keep going eliminating one PM at a time (perhaps more) until someone has over 50% at the end of a month.  The more complicated rules are:


* Each round runs for a month, so you can vote in as many rounds as you like and don't have to stick with the same candidate.
* At the end of each round the PM in last place in that round is eliminated, jokes are made at their expense, and voting starts again without that PM.  
* If there is a tie for last place, it is broken using the results of the previous round, then the round before that, or failing that the most recent PM to leave office is excluded.
* If any ex-PM who is still in the contest dies during the voting period, voting will be suspended for a month and then continue. Hopefully all will stay in the most excellent of health throughout.
* If there is a change of Prime Minister during the campaign period, voting will be suspended for a month.  If the new PM has not been PM before, voting on the current round will then restart with that PM added; otherwise, voting on the current round will continue.
* If the contest is still going, there will be no voting in March 2018.  The reason for this will become clear at the time.
* Bulk Exclusion Clause: To streamline the process, multiple candidates will be eliminated from the bottom up at the end of a voting month if the combined transfer of their votes could not have put anybody over 50%, and if it would not have been possible for any of them to win from where they are in a preferential election.

Technical note: If you wish to vote on a mobile, switch to "View web version" at the bottom of an article.

Voting for Round 1 is open in the sidebar on the right and closes Sep 30 at 6:00 AEST.
