David Smith MP
FEDERAL MEMBER FOR BEAN
13 October 2020
Subjects: NSW and VIC Premiers, tax cuts, COVID-19 Travel Bubble with New Zealand, the ACT election.
CENATIEMPO: Speaking of hard days, David, Daniel Andrews has probably had his hardest two days at these press conferences, where apparently, they were supposed to clap like trained seals, that he's turned up 100 days in a row, but it's only the last couple where he's actually been forced to answer questions by somebody that's not a journalist in Peta Credlin.
SMITH: Look very much so Steve, and it'll be interesting how many people actually vote on Election Day. But look, the ACT government, like many governments, have had almost everything thrown at them this year. We had the bush fires and the smoke pollution. We had that mad hailstorm and then, of course, like other state and territory governments, it's about how we deal with the challenge of the pandemic. The mood on the booths is a pretty positive one, I think (they) realise we've got a quite competent and experienced government but that doesn't mean that they always like everyone in the government, but they realise they're pretty competent with experience and they probably want to get it out of the way before hopefully the Raiders get on their way to another Grand Final.
