Default votes.

Went home to my family for the long weekend. They all told me they voted Liberal because they always have. Mum told me a few weeks back she thought all the senators went in a contest to see who the new PM was. My sister thought Shorten was the PM, and Morrison just became the new one after the election.

Default votes are a hell of an asset to the Coalition.

I see that Tanya Blubbersook had added her name to the chorus of Labor MPs claiming the Morrison government dont have a mandate to deliver the tax cuts. How she can suggest that is beyond me but at least it demonstrates that Labor will never learn while there are extremists like her in its midst.

In country WA were I live Labor didn't even bother to put up a single sign to advertise their candidate, I mean seriously how ****in lazy is that?

Heck if they mailed a couple of them to me I'd have went down and put them up at the 2 railway crossings everyone passes everyday.

Oh yes, had just posted about this in the Albo thread. Seriously dumb politics from her.

You dont think Labor gets millions of those too?

Its similar to football teams.

That said, I know plenty of single parents who cant stand Labor and vote Liberal when in theory its really not in their best interest.

How has Labor moved so far away frkm what should be their bread and butter?

I'm sure they do. Dumb rural goes to Liberal, dumb urban goes to Green. There's a market for Labor somewhere.
Lots of sons and daughters of 40s-70s blue collar workers vote labor out of respect and unknown disregard for the white collar liberals.

Potentially two interest rate cuts since the election. The RBA has no faith in this government and this is the narrative we'd be getting if Labor had won the election.

It seems to me that with the current and expected rates cut the RBA seems to be doing most of the heavy lifting.

Their last report gives the government some clues.


In a sign of the RBA's growing concerns about the economy, governor Philip Lowe on Thursday ramped up his calls for all governments to fast-track major infrastructure spending in a bid to slash the unemployment rate.

He signalled that to deal with "significant" underemployment and sluggish wages growth, another rate cut was on the agenda.

Dr Lowe made clear there were limitations to what could be achieved solely with low interest rates, urging governments of all persuasions to boost their own efforts.
"As a country, we should also be looking at other ways to get closer to full employment. One option is fiscal policy, including through spending on infrastructure," he said.

It's ok when it's the libs :D
Remember Juliar? How we laughed. Craig Thomson, Peter Slipper, JAIL THEM!!!! Stuart Robert sits in cabinet ffs. It might be a PJism and an internet search doesn't reveal were I read it but it rings true to our political parties here as well, "what Democrats do to their secretaries, Republicans do to the country."

Hahaha, the RBA said in 2009 that interest rates were at "emergency lows" at 3% - funnily enough, 10 years later and with our economy growing at roughly 2% p.a. and unemployment below 6% I don't see any "emergency", but then again incompetent central banks around the world setting interest rates at 0% is what is causing the current global economic malaise.

RBA sets rates based on the inflation rate - I'm not sure when this nonsense about them targetting "underemployment" came into consideration. Of course they had to move on to other indicators because with a globalised economy inflation is heading DOWN no matter what they do.
