7 sleeps. Day 30. All hands on deck

This time next week it will all be over. Not for the candidates, who’ll be chewing their fingernails to the quick as the numbers are crunched.
But for the long-suffering punters, many who claim they’d had enough of the election before it even started, the shopping centre stalls, the mailbox stuffing, the posters, the media bombardment and the doorknocking will come to an end.
Nearly every candidate was out and about today, either at shopping centres, community events or banging on doors. According to some reports it got a bit willing, with some over-enthusiastic young supporters taking their passion just a little too far.
Expect a frantic final week. There’ll be a couple of big policy announcements, treasury running the final rule over all the election promises (those that have been submitted anyway) and maybe, just maybe, a dirty trick or two.
One week out, the most common prediction is a seven, seven, three result. But it’s a prediction made with little confidence, with everyone conceding the result will be close.
And if you still haven’t made up your mind, don’t forget our special 666 breakfast outside broadcasts this week. Monday morning we’ll be at the Central Cafe in Gungahlin. See you there.
