Sitting member Karlene
Maywald is fighting for her
life in the seat of Chaffey,
fiercely defending her independ-
ence by firing shots at the Labor
Party to which she has been so
closely aligned, but pledging to
align with whatever party forms
Her chances are weakened
by this week s potentially seat-
deciding preference swap between
Family First and the Liberals.
In 2006, Family First sent its
preferences Ms Maywald s way,
but this week local candidate
Jack Papageorgiou announced a
deal with Liberal nominee Tim
Whetstone, who is now tipped to
take the seat.
Family First expects to more
than double its 5 per cent result
of 2006, so with those preferences
Mr Whetstone is tipped to win the
Ms Maywald is now working
overtime to distance herself from
the Labor Government which
made her a Minister, firing at both
major parties and insisting she
puts her electorate first.
"There is no point aligning with
a (major) political party before
the election because then I may
as well have run for them," said
Ms Maywald, Parliament s only
National Party member.
"I don t actually think there s
terribly much between Labor and
"Politics these days is very
much a grab for the middle
ground. If I wanted to be a cop-out
member I would have run for
Labor or Liberal."
Ms Maywald, who won the
previously Liberal-held seat in
1997, has said that if re-elected,
she would align with whichever
party offered the best deal for
regional areas, but she ruled out a
stint in opposition.
"If my vote were to count
then I would be aiming to be on
the government benches," Ms
Maywald told The Independent
"I would work for the govern-
ment of the day."
However, Ms Maywald doubts
the Liberal Party will accept her,
saying: "The only way they would
welcome me anywhere near them
is if they absolutely needed it (to

best way for her to leverage the
most power for the region, but

Ms Maywald can now rely
only on preferences from Labor
candidate Roly Telfer and Greens
contender Jim Jordan.
Mr Telfer has isolated some
of the Riverland population by
calling growers "greedy", a com-
ment he says was misconstrued
and referred only to a handful of
The Greens are fielding a non-
local candidate and are polling at
around 3 per cent.
Matthew Pantelis, FIVEaa news
Rick Phillips is right, people are
over seeing his and Michelle s face
(well, OK, maybe not Michelle s
face) on the telly and on the front
page. Talkback callers have verified
it repeatedly on FIVEaa in the last
So much so, when Rick Phillips
turned up to the Treasurers debate
to tell us just how over we are of
seeing them, we all rejoiced.
In fact, we re so over it, that

of the questions on Michelle and
Sasha this week, but fortunately for
him he was in a hospital when he
stormed out of his media confer-
His condition couldn t have
improved as he brushed past a
doctor from the Save the RAH
campaign who cheekily apologised
for being there but looked decidedly
the better for his encounter.
With just a week to go, Mr
Rann will be hoping for less Rick
and Michelle and more Lara and
The rest of us are hoping to be
over Rick and Michelle ... again.
Paris Dean, Radio Adelaide news
The past week saw a frenetic rehash
of weeks past: Rann bellowed a bevy
of statistics, Redmond continued
her scatter-gun attack and Michelle
Chantelois estranged husband, no
longer checked by an ongoing crimi-
nal case, continued his personal
crusade against the Premier in his
own bizarre fashion.
With little new said in the last
week, it appears that the stage is
now fully set and pundits and
punters alike can do little more
than breathe a sigh of disappoint-
ment and watch the closing scenes
of this most uninspiring race play
Graham Archer, producer, Today
Going ... going ... the spin has
spun out of control in the wake
of the Chantelois charabanc. The
Premier s decision to trade his wife
Sasha Carruozzo for a front page in
Saturday s Tiser is a dramatic sign
he doubts his own credibility. The
"candid interview" was drenched
in political intent and made more
cynical, if that s possible, by being
conducted on the 15th floor of the
State Admin Centre under the
steely gaze of the taxpayer-funded
gila that is the Premier s chief
Having earlier lamely apologised
for unspecified offences to Michelle
and family, Mr Rann must have
known he was all out of emotional
cred -- so wheel out the good wife.
Funny how one page can say so
much, none of which was intended
to have been said.
David Bevan, ABC radio
Being stuck in traffic gives people
time to think. Every year calls are
pretty evenly divided between those
happy to put up with delays caused
by a V8 Supercar city track and
people who are just fuming.
This year, though, drivers can
stare at election posters as they sit
in their cars.

I walked across my dead lawn to my
car and arrived at work 20 minutes
late. Mmm, I wonder who I ll vote
