Mother ducker!

All that tax money worth it to pwn 'tEh LeFt' though hey?

The idiots that think they’re sticking it to the left voting for crooks like the libs are too stupid to realize they’re being fleeced.

The libs don’t care, it’s just a culture war distraction while they loot the treasury.

The word from a pretty hard core ALP insider (former high ranking cabinet minister, still very sharp and still well connected) suggests the Public Service ie. Departments are an absolute ******* disaster. The new government are loathe to do a full corporate clean out (ie. air all the dirty laundry in one big hit) because they reckon the fall out will be immense. Large areas of government totally underfunded and contacted out to the big end of town. “Could take ten years to rectify in good times”…these are not good times. Specific reference was made to the NDIS “they never believed in it and everyone that’s been in the department has just dithered”

Nah * that, the LNP have ruined this country for far too long and the public needs to know the damage that they cause when in power.

Seeds. One month in, and still not regretting my vote. Still very happy to see the back of the ecominic philistine
Why would you regret it now? its when the libs get back in power and all the hard right nutters that by then solely make up that party want to ban abortion that we may well be regretting it.

just as the usa is right now.

It's like we don't speak the same language.

I accept that the point/observation/opinion you are making is obvious to you. But I cannot make hide nor hair of comment.
It will resonate with someone…..cheers

Libs were in power from 2013 to 2022, didn't happen then. Maybe you could watch less US politics..........

The Liberals in Australia are followers, not leaders.

You cannot seriously expect them to do something before the USA tells them to.

Cos most of the people in his electorate dont want labor either. They want old school classical liberals.
Any idea where any of those exist?

If we ignore that the Teal members do not actually have "members" they are the closest things to "old school classical liberals" in Australia these days.

Frydenburg was closer then most in his party. Not sufficiently for my liking but he was closer.

the teals are even better but do we honestly believe in our lifetime that we will move away from the labor vs liberal paradigm?

It is slowly happening. We came within 1-2 seats of minority government this time and last amd the one before that. Gillard was a minority government. 4 of the last 5 governments have been decided by a seat or less and each time the primary vote of the majors has dropped.

It is inevitable.
