There wouldn't be an election would there?

I emailed a complaint to my local federal member about 2 months ago and received stuff all response. Surprise factor? Negative 12.

Today I got a phone call from his office apologizing they hadn’t got back to me and how can they help and yes I was absolutely justified in my complaint and that they will look into it right now. Uh huh…of course it’s the skeptic in me that thinks because it’s the run up to the Australian federal election, and I’m in a key state of voters who could decide the fate of which party wins, that they have suddenly decided to buy my vote. I know…terrible to be so cynical...and I ain’t cheap to purchase.
