Scott Morrison warned today that the election of an ALP Government in May would result in a recession for Australia.
Prior to the 2007 election, John Howard and Peter Costello warned of the "Risk of a Rudd Recession" (see how clever they were with that little alliteration).
Prior to the 1983 election, Malcolm Fraser warned that the election of a Hawke Labor Government would see people's savings raided from their bank accounts and that they would be safer leaving their money under their beds.
To which Hawke replied: You can't put your money there, that's where the commies are.
What's the pattern here?
In 1983, the ALP won the election with 53.2% of the two party preferred vote and the equivalent of 90 seats.
In 2007, the ALP won the election with 52.7% of the two party preferred vote and 83 seats.
in 2019, the ALP is tracking currently in the polls at 53.2% of the two party preferred vote and 89 seats.

Seems there's a clear correlation between the level of shrill from a Coalition government and the subsequent election of a Labor government.
