I scored 8/9 (missed the one on the last date you can enrol for a general election). That put me above the average of 5.5/9 and encouraged by that I went on to the
I got one wrong there too. It was:
Which of the following is true?
Parliamentary parties are the only ones that receive state funding
Each registered party can spend up to $1 million on its party vote campaign
There is no state funding of campaigns
Registered parties receive state campaign funding based largely on their success at the previous election
I opted for no state funding and was surprised to get it wrong because the answer is:
Registered parties receive state campaign funding based largely on their success at the previous election.
Please tell me that refers only to the allocation of broadcasting funding and that full state funding hasn’t been introduced by stealth?
