    Talkback radio’s greatest law and order proponent Ray Hadley is the proud father of a NSW policeman.

    Daniel Hadley, 24, is pretty proud of his father, too.

    His Facebook site used to feature a photograph of a tattoo on his left upper arm depicting a radio microphone and the word “Dad”.

    But on Wednesday, Hadley was incandescent with rage at the No Land Tax Party’s Peter Jones for putting up a photograph of the pair at Daniel’s 2012 graduation from the Police Academy at Goulburn.

    The image appeared in the Daily Telegraph on May 5, 2012.

    Hadley seemed under the impression that dark forces would target his son now that his photograph was on the No Land Tax Party website.

    Jones said Hadley pere and fils appeared on the No Land Tax website publicising its “second policy” – another police royal commission.

    “Candidly, I had no idea it was the son of Ray,” said Jones. Slow count

    Broken Hill runs on Adelaide time, so voters in NSW’s most far western flung electorate can sleep an extra 30 minutes before wandering down to catch the polling booths when they open.

    And they get another 30 minutes’ grace as the seven booths in town remain open for half an hour after the polling closes in the rest of NSW at 6pm.

    Despite the “window” of opportunity, the 30 minutes doesn’t help would-be challengers much: National incumbent MP Kevin Humphries’ two-party preferred vote in 2011 topped 82 per cent. Odds and sods

    Democracy can be such hungry work and now Snagvotes has returned to help electors garnish their votes.

    The Election Sausage Sizzle website is up and running for the NSW election.

    It’s the brainchild of Brisbane academic Grant Castner, who started it by chance when he realised the nexus between voting and food created various social media contact points for schools and volunteer organisations to sell snags and cakes and run fairs.

    “A mate joked it would be good to know where you could get a banger while casting a vote,” he said.

    “That was six elections ago and its become pretty big. It’s an Australia-only affair.”

    The hashtags #Snagvotes and #DemocracySausage help people tweet details of locations of sausage sizzles, cake stalls, and other fundraising activities on election day in their electorates and to share pictures of their sausage sizzle experience.

    So far, there are 172 sausage sizzle and cake stalls on the snagvotes counter. They’re mainly in Sydney – but Goolgowi in the far west and Bowraville on the NSW Mid North coast are among rural sausage sizzles to have put their names down.

    In 2013, some 1470 stalls were registered at 19 per cent of all polling booths. 2015 NSW election: Policy reckoner
