It's official: off and running

The Broadcasting Services Act states that the "election period" starts on either the day on which the proposed polling day is announced or the day on which the writs for the election are issued, whichever happens first. Once the election period has begun, the commercial broadcasters must ensure balance in the amount of time they give each party.
The unfailingly left of the leftest lefty, the ABC, will retain a stiff upper and pretend that the election campaign has not started:
ABC managing director Mark Scott yesterday confirmed the national broadcaster had decided the election period would not begin until the writs were issued on August 12 for a general election. Mr Scott said the broadcaster would take a "commonsense" approach.
Yes Virginia, the election campaign really did start ...  forever ago
