As the election proved Melbourne is well and truely out of step with the rest of Australia on a number of issues. The Victorian media would have had you believe Dan Andrews is doing a terrific job and federal labor were certainties to win.

Leftist local identities such as Charlie Pickering, Jane Caro, Waleed Ali and Michelle Lawrie have since got on their soap box to criticise the majority of the country for electing a government that didn’t believe in socialism.

Crime continues to spiral out of control in Melbourne and the state Labor government have now all but confirmed there is a massive budget black hole which will result in huge debts while the government refuses to budge on the east west link which they have already wasted $1.3bn on and the federal government have been forced to step in and build the road to stop it from being a political football for Andrews ego.

The most perplexing thing about the whole situation is that the majority of people in Victoria genuinely believe in the socialist propaganda they are fed. They believe they are the majority and anyone who doesn’t agree are uneducated, scared rednecks. It is time Australia booted them out of the commonwealth so they can have their socialist paradise in peace
This is the most idiotic piece I have seen in on BF, and there have been some beauties in the past. I will remind you Queenslanders have twice voted for senator Malcom Roberts, not once, but twice. I'm glad Victorians are not so easily conned. Don't suppose you have noticed the coalition doing 'Fascist Lite' to journalists over the last week, or our economy that's tanking fast after successive LNP governments.

I think Queensland is the land time forgot. They are very religious and don't trust scientific evidence .They are also very isolationist and have a chip on their shoulder about 'southerners' .
What is most upsetting, is their disdain for the environment that has been going on since before Jo Bjelke-petersen. To treat the Barrier Reef like a toilet is an international disgrace and the mass land clearing is criminal.
Also they are very selfish and gullible.They vote for an automated coal mine because they somehow think they will magically receive a trickle down effect.They vote disproportionately for Clive Palmer and One Nation hence the 'redneck' label.
In summary , I opine that it is indeed Queenslanders that are out of step with the rest of Australians and the rest of the world.

There is not one factual point in your entire post
Queensland voted disproportionately for Palmer and One Nation- True.
Queensland more religious than other states- True
Queensland treats the Barrier Reef like a toilet-True
Queenslanders have a chip on their shoulders about Southerners-True
Queenslanders are gullible-True ( easily brainwahed by Newscorp and think they will benefit economically from Adani)
Land clearing on a criminal sale- True ( Unprecedented rates of illegal land clearing over the last decade with little done about it)
Don't get too upset with the stark reality I'm exposing you to, it was misleading thread title I had to correct for you.

Victorians votes disproportionately for the greens. One nation vote also strong in NSW and WA.

Smack on average in terms of percentage of people who are religious as per census. So that’s incorrect

In what capacity do we treat the barrier reef like a toilet? That’s more a Melbourne Yarra river / port Phillip bay thing

Everyone except Queenslanders know about the appallingly state of the reef and it's future prospects due to land clearing and rising ocean temperatures due to climate change .The United Nations has even raised serious concerns but the Queenslanders have already said ,'Hey UN don't tell us what to do, we're Queenslanders". Meanwhile a jewell of nature around the whole world slowly dies. Good one Queensland! Why not also put a massive coal mine not far from it, that can't do any harm surely!

What about run-off of fertilizers from farms? What direct action is going on? They can't even ban plastic bags from the nearby towns.The tourist operators had to beg to get plastic straws banned. Both governments do eff all.

Basically sums up this bloke. Then again he can’t change a tyre
Dazlington, if you post a ridiculous thread be man enough to argue the point! You are undoubtedly a rising star of the Bay 13 toilet flush but don't tell us Queensland is a superior state.You voted Peter Dutton back in, now we have an attack on journalists, thanks Queensland, you made world news again!

Peter Dutton has performed admirably in stopping the boats and protecting our borders. Lefties don’t like that but it’s a fact. Also did the nation a great deed by getting rid of Turnbull who rivalled Gillard as our worst ever PM

Any proof that he is racist? Any? One little bit will suffice. I’ll wait

In terms of refugees off shore processing is easily the best solution for protecting our borders and keeping people safe. How many people died when labor threw open the floodgates. How many leftie organisations are instructing these economic refugees exactly what to say and how to act in order to get to Australia.

Yes sure , how about his comments that people in Melbourne are too scared to go out for dinner because of African Gangs? It's incorrect and a gross exaggeration. There's no gangs. Picking on a minority group because of their skin colour= racist.
He made comments that Lebanese immigrants shouldn't have been let into the country in the 80's. Picking on one nationality again because of the actions of a few= racist.
White South African farmers, he claimed we should help white South African farmers to emigrate here even though none of them applied to or want to. The 'save the white south Aftican farmers' started on a far right propaganda webpage in the US and has widely been discredited, more black farm workers get killed= racist.
In 2008, he chose not to be present in the chamber during the apology to the Stolen Generations, which enjoyed bipartisan support.
Before the 2016 election Dutton said of refugees "many ... won't be numerate or literate in their own language let alone English",and "These people would be taking Australian jobs".
Feel free to tell me otherwise.

You sound a bit xenophobic and seem to believe what Liberal politicians tell you which is hilarious. Why is it necessary to lock refugees up for 5 years at Manus? There has been a spate of suicide attempts since the election and children getting serious mental conditions, it's basically state sanctioned torture and you voted for it.

Mate there are plenty of African gangs in Melbourne and they are running riot. I wouldn’t take my wife down to St Kilda beach during summer.

Stating a commonly held view that if we are to let people immigrate to Australia we choose who we let in and make sure they have the tools and culture to succeed here in peace is not a radical position.
