Dave, the Bligh Bus Driver

This is Dave, the Bligh bus driver. He's been hauling Anna Bligh, her media advisers and a pack of journalists around since early Wednesday. Thursday's trip actually turned into Friday's trip, with 18 hours of campaign in 19 seats finishing at 2am.

As the action wound down this afternoon, I thought I'd grab a quick chat with Dave about his perspective on the madness.

Speaking of madness, Bridie Jabour over at has written a great piece about life on the campaign buses. I make an anonymous appearance - possibly relating to geography and travel distances. I wish I'd been able to keep up with the pace and write more detailed posts about the election trail. It turned out to be as busy as I expected, and then some. But after the final big push tomorrow, and before I collapse into a coma, I'll see what I can do...
