    Has Campbell Newman trumped Clive Palmer's senate inquiry into his government with a Jan 31 election date, almost two months early ?

    2013 Federal Election: 7 September 2013

    Hope it's OK to start a new thread now that we have an election date. This is a start: I don't know anything about the methodology employed by Seven News/Reachtel. The first Newspoll of the campaign will be interesting.

    Effect of election on Aussie economy?

    The title pretty much sums it up. What has happened historically during election years? do you think it will have an effect, especially since its been called so early?
