  • Loyalty has no leverage

    949 views 2 years ago
    The electorate of Mallee. Represented by the same Political Party since 1949!

    The people of the federal electorate of Mallee have voted with such long term loyalty, that today we give no reason for any Government to prioritise the needs of our region. In terms of political influence, the electorate of Mallee is always in Opposition.

    Why? Because in politics, loyalty gives no leverage.


    Verse 1
    Mallee people, kind and faithful, yet this offers no reward.
    ‘Til the day we change our vote, forever we will be ignored.
    Being loyal, gives no leverage; what we want, not top of mind.
    Our desire, not in thinking; when deals are done at Budget time.
    Swinging voters, money-power; in politics these dominate.
    Close polls matter, causing chatter; focus Mallee in the debate.

    Verse 2
    The Cabinet, of Ministers, hold all of the authority.
    Loudest voices, drive their choices, of who they give priority.
    The votes that walk, and money talks, is all that politicians know.
    These two things, will always bring, attention in this big game show.
    Swinging voters, money power; lobby Cab-net of the day.
    At the table, does not matter; if you have no cards to play.

    Verse 3
    It is time to change direction; join the new economy.
    Be the leaders, of our future; our region and society.
    World is changing, is not waiting; left behind if we stay the same.
    This election, we must question, and reignite the Mallee flame.
    Swinging voters, money and power, these are the games of Government.
    To change our heart, makes Mallee a-part, of the choices made in Parl-a-ment. Show less
