Reminds me of Nelson who was LOTO following an election defeat by the sitting Howard Govt in 2007

Funnily enough, this much lauded (lorded?) prayer says absolutely f-all about helping the vulnerable or, indeed, about helping anybody else at all.
This might say something about the hypocrisy which drives so-called christians.
The only thing in it which comes close is “forgiving those who sin against us”

Kidding, right?
They literally just throw s**t from the sides while they wait for Labor to inevitably implode (with a little encouragement and prodding from uncle Rup)
Yeah I'm thinking maybe Labor has finally learnt that lesson. Hope so.

Long term this is excellent for the LNP.
How?

Liberals are currently getting painted with tar by the Christian Right. Morrison completely screws NSW and Matthew Guy says hold my beer.

Sure there are a few cookers in Australia who love Trump and Murdoch can rattle the blue rinse set, but sensible Australians want no part of this culture war bullshit.

How so? To shore up support from their band of rusted-on culture warriors, already dwindling through natural attrition due to their advanced age?

I think this most recent election showed that the culture war trick ain't working with enough swinging voters any more.

Look how badly the Katherine Deves thing backfired.

It's all very well to wage a culture war in a post Olympic glow with rivers of gold to handout and a cricket team that routinely spanked all comers. The Libs really need to let go of John Howard.

"What’s happening now is dead simple: later this week in the House of Representatives, the Liberal and National parties will once again vote against any form of serious emissions reduction.

That’s the truth. Voting against action to combat the climate crisis. This behaviour needs to be called for what it is."

Bandt just rendered him irrelevant



In terms of the Emissions Agreement. With The Greens announcing that they will vote for the Government Bill in both the Lower and Upper House.
Greens finally understanding that even little victories can be a good start.

I am hearing more about the Greens than I am about the LNP in my assorted scrolling and hearing snippets of news at home. Mostly on climate but could mean we'll move from an ALP vs LNP to ALP vs GRN in a few elections time.

I am probably wishful thinking tbf

I think we all need to take a moment out and think of the poor Taylor family.

Maybe now the ALP will officially acknowledge that the reason the Greens rejected their CPRS was because they correctly identified it as a useless horseschitte policy that Treasury itself showed would produce zero reductions in emissions for the first 25 years of its operation.

Guess that's too much to ask. Think how much cleaner we could be by now if the ALP hadn't tried to put one over the entire nation.

Would I be right saying you or they reject carbon pricing?
