Dick gets out of the blocks early, and we mean 'early'

IT is often said that the early bird catches the worm.

Labor workers for Milton Dick in the seat of Oxley took that an extra step when they caught their LNP opponents napping yesterday afternoon with a blitz on election signage around polling booths. 

Most campaigns see the usual signage go up around 5am on polling day but Mr Dick stole a march on his opposition with party faithful erecting signs 18 hours before the polls open on Saturday at 8am. 

To make the signs safe, security guards were at the booths from 6pm. 

Oxley is the only seat in Queensland which the LNP has never held since 1961 and Mr Dick has left nothing to chance in his bid to win the seat.
