All politics is local

Unis Australia has launched a second burst in its politically on-song (a mighty chorus in fact) “uni research saves lives” campaign (CMM yesterday).

It followed up with a tweet about a Macquarie U project on childhood literacy, “uni research in Bennelong is helping children learn to read and across Australia.” Bennelong is the electorate held by government member John Alexander with a safe-ish 6 per cent two party preferred margin.

UA also pointed other research in the campaign to relevant federal members, but Adam Bandt (Greens-Melbourne) and Steve Georganas (Labor-Adelaide) can’t be as much help.
