Friday Fight Club
It’s the last day before we go to the polls and this election couldn’t be closer.
We’re all a bit tired, especially if you’re job was to follow Tony Abbott through the night, but it’s the Friday Fight Club finale.
Punch on and tell us what you thought of the campaign and how things are going to go tomorrow.

Friday Fight Club starts at 12 noon and goes until 1pm. Join the debate here to discuss the winners and losers from the fourth week of the campaign. We’ll be talking about Mark Latham’s re-emergence on the national stage, the Rooty Hill voters’ forum, Julia Gillard’s appearances on Q and A and the 7pm project, and the Coalition’s broadband policy. And whatever else you’re keen to discuss.

We now seem to have four leaders vying for election victory - Real Julia, Unreal Julia, Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott. Week three of the Federal Election campaign took on a bizarre flavour.
This Sunday promises to be a cracker - with Julia and Kevin threatening to get together to campaign as Tony officially launches his bid. Who goes into the weekend with the biggest advantage?

The Punch invites its readers to take part in a live online debate from 12 noon to 1pm tomorrow on our website in what will hopefully be a spirited and entertaining stink about the first week of the election campaign.
We’ve invited some of our beloved regular commenters - left-wingers, right-wingers and no-wingers - to take part and we’d love you to join in too. We want to hear your thoughts on whether Julia Gillard or Tony Abbott is off to the best start, which party has delivered the best policies, what you think of their tactics and slogans, and what’s missing from the campaign.
We’ll be using Coveritlive to run this experiment which will run every Friday during the five-week campaign. Simply turn up with an opinion, be it a well-constructed and thoughtful argument, or even something erratic, tangential, half-baked and profane.
