WHAT THEY SAID ON DAY 37 OF THE ELECTION CAMPAIGN

THE BEST LINE

“Personally, it’s sad for me that I can’t show him that we can win and form a government, ’cause I feel I’d be fulfilling a contract that I mentally made with him all those years ago.”

– Bill Shorten on his friend and mentor Bob Hawke.

PRIME MINISTER SCOTT MORRISON

“If you want to stop Labor’s higher taxes, vote Liberal and National tomorrow… And if that’s how you feel then please encourage all your friends to do likewise.”

– Making his final pitch to voters.

“This will be the closest election we’ve seen in many, many years.”

– Closer than in 2016 (result 50.4 to 49.6 per cent) or 2010 (50.1 to 49.9 per cent)?

LABOR LEADER BILL SHORTEN

“We think this country works best when we are ambitious for the future, not captured by the fears of the past.”

– Making his final pitch to voters.

REAL PEOPLE

“I wonder if the federal government can do anything about the climate change rhetoric that is being given to children in school? They are really being brainwashed.”

– A question from the audience to Scott Morrison at a forum in the Queensland seat of Flynn.

THE SUPPORT CAST

“There’s a whiff of ’93 in the air.”

– Former prime minister John Howard comparing this election to the one in 1993 when the then coalition opposition lost the unlosable election.
