With the federal elections still eight days in the future 18 candidates have failed to make it to their starting blocks. They were forced to resign for various reasons, mostly to do with sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia and anti-Semitism. Four were eliminated because of their dual citizenship status. The tally so far.

Conservative coalition (Liberal, National): 11
Labor: 4
Greens: 1
Lunatic fringe (One Nation, United Australia) 2

There's a possibility of another 8 not making it to the starting line by polling day.

They only resigned their party membership. All those not eliminated under 44C will make it to the starting line, as independents.

Hopefully the media exposure will reduce their electability...

I hope to be able to vote for the pirate party, it depends on whether they provide voting slips... if they are one of those parties that tell you to download it from their site and print them yourself, I'm afraid I won't be able to do so, for lack of a printer.

greens, you're crazy as a loon, those guys are dangerous antigrowth fanatics... with them, the availability of power will dwindle while the prices soar.
