They are not burning over any particular issue. They don't think Marshall does much. Broadly they'd like to give the government a kick in the bum, but not to the extent of throwing them out (at the moment) - Just warning them. There is a potential mood for change for its own sake - if the "waste" issue is driven hard by Labor this mood may well harden to action. When pressed they seem to want the government to deliver; preservation of the NT lifestyle evidence of action and vision By the time the election hits presumably they will need some hip-pocket bribery as well. The target is unlike their interstate counterparts: they seem to readily accept Asians, rather than resent them; they seem to resent the treatment/benefits given to aboriginals on the rational basis that they cannot get these handouts - its not the traditional racism as a poor mans snobbery. Men appear to be far more "dominant". Male sexism is alive and having one drink too many in the Northern suburbs. They tend to be laconic and accepting - albeit in a rather brutish way. A Brian Sweeney research report is appended. 7. CAMPAIGN OVSRVIKW (See promotional calendar overleaf.) 8. CAMPAIGN CONTENT (a) "Marshall a the NT Lifestyle" Marshall Perron experience/knows how to do it family man has NT at heart/loves it quiet achiever
