To: NEWSPAPER EDITORS of AUSTRALIA

Your excellent coverage of issues, politicans and people (with their wants and needs) leading toward the upcoming election is without parallel. No careful reader of ‘The Australian’ could be in any doubt about those critically important matters leading us toward May 21.

I have been a voter in federal elections since the 1960’s. Back then, one hardly knew there was an election in the wind. Information was quite scant and the news feed, by the time it was released, was up to several days old. Information technology now ensures , we have feedback on key issues as they unfold. People can no longer claim lack of awareness as an excuse for not understanding what is happening.

It also seems that the day after an election result is declared, politicans, political parties and political aspirants are already preparing for the next poll approximately three years into the future. Are we therefore, always in election mode?
