are you some kind of communist?

As is my way, of course I encouraged the family to complete the vote compass.

And as is their way, they were totally into participating – for there is nothing they like better than a family contest or a chance to compare themselves to each other.

Also as is my way, I was compelled to make a chart of the results.

Despite frequently making charts for a living (though I have people to do that now), I’d not had any occasion to make a scatter plot in excel, so needed to call upon the m4d sk1llz of my lovely husband because it is the most ridiculously unintuitive thing I have ever seen. I think I had forced Vincenzo to do this once, I will apologise on Monday.

Anyway on with the results:

Clearly Joan is our token conservative.

It is very interesting how aligned we all are. Don and I both grew up in families firmly entrenched very far in the bottom right quadrant which we (thankfully) both rebelled against. Fortunately the offspring did not feel the same rebellious compulsion!

  1. I did mine too. No surprises.

      How has the campaigning been at your end of the electorate?

      We’ve had some Penny Sharpe doorknockers, posters everywhere and several bits & pieces in the mail. I really have a lot of time for her – shame about her party affiliations! The Greens have been Very Quiet – a couple of posters, not a lot of stuff in the letterbox. Will be interesting to see if that ramps up!

    I did this before our election (again) and was in the same position as you.

      Harriet!!! I am not surprised – you’ve always been a proper-thinking person đŸ˜‰

      Let us hope we have a similar result to you – though I think Labor NSW has way too much baggage to be reelected so soon.

    When is your election? I would say I will watch it closely but we don’t actually get much coverage of interstate politics, I shall have to seek a source of information.

      It’s on 28 March, so far pretty understated campaigning. Polling so far has libs ahead. They’ve both had their share of corruption scandals. Lots of labor die-hards really hate NSW labor.

      I can recommend The Guardian Australian edition as an excellent source.
