    Anyone being able to use your data is a huge privacy issue. Large companies can basically bend you over. The AG must have been promised a job with his mate at village road show.

    Send an email to the contact at this link asap as they have tried to do it over the holiday period (end date Jan 13) don't get lazy spam it on social media as well. We have been creeping along the path to zero rights to privacy for a while. Libs doing this is the last straw for me. I won't be voting for these dip$hits again

    Right wing govts always introduce measures to control the population who don't deserve the right to vote for people who weren't born and raised to rule. Liberal party members have an innate mandate, who must endure the stupidity of the electorate; the unions have the shop floors, the Liberal have the top floors.

    Actually righties believe in minimal government interference and the right of the individual. Governments deciding for you for the greater good is what leftists believe in.
    The whole left right political position has been watered down into wrong labeling.

    Unfortunately that is not true if we consider the LNP the holy grail of rightwing politics. The Charles Courts in WA, The Johs and Newmans in Qld, the Boltes in Vic, etc were all authoritarians who pinged the public with Dickensian and autocratic vicissitudes. A zealous desire for puritanical socialism is more the norm for the leaders of that particular party royalty. It doesn't help there is a servile following who rock up at the polling booths and autovote for more freedom flogging instead of demanding choice that favours the man on a Bondi Tram.

    Funny that Labor governments seem disinclined to unwind these authoritarian measures, like the current "anti terrorism" measures supported by Labor.

    We have now got to the point where the "right" to silence and innocent until proven guilty has been overturned in some cases. We are getting to the point where citizens rights are an inconvenience to governments and once legislation is passed its very hard to get it undone.

    We've seen over the last few weeks just how the "right" have silenced their own leader on any issue considered remotely progressive (or innovative as they put it).

    Ironically, Malcolm Turnbull has always advocated for smaller Government and less interference.
    His Government is now 14 seats smaller and is dysfunctional so in a way he got his wish :D

    Once again, if this was Rudd or Gillard in charge the Murdoch press would be baying for the PM's head:

    Might be a new year but the still the same old mismanaged government.

    An authoritarian government that attempted to disguise the data retention policy as a national security issue and yet now they have announced a review into allowing data retention to be used in civil cases.

    The class warfare continues in their horribly implemented debt recovery system that is seeing so many people incorrectly issued a debt notice from past Centrelink payments, Malcom Turnbull is no where to be seen on the issue. Yet what is been done about the $35 billion in unpaid taxes owed to the ATO?

    The real leaners are in the Liberal party. Susan Ley billing tax payers for her trip to the Gold Coast to purchase an 800k property on "impulse" from a Liberal party donor yet can't disclose who she met with and if the property is negatively geared which no doubt it will be as it's the Liberals love child policy.

    Yes, the LNP are total cr@p for all the above reasons and more.

    Not much else I can say really.

    Yes you can Rumpy...Include the Green/Labor left wing socialist coalition...They are just as bad and that is why we need a revolution in politics....While we have these two useless major parties, the country is going no where......It is going backwards.

    The GLU (Greens, Labor, Unions) are not in power. The current gov't has stuffed up so badly that the GLU's could hardly be worse.

    But weren't the GLU the start the problem in the first place and have made no effort to help fix it..Don't tell me you have forgotten already as to what happened in 2007/2013...I always have to remind you but I won't bother to go into detail this time as you already know but won't admit it like the rest of the Green/Labor left wing socialist coalition....Juts blame the current government......Grrrrrrrrr!!.

    Not that I have any time for Turnbull as I am sure he is working hand in glove with Shorten to wreck this once great nation.

    Now that Susan Ley has been caught out doing worse than Peter Slipper, will the Murdoch Liberal Party and it's newspapers hound her out of her career in disgrace? Will a royal commission be held to get to the bottom of the obvious union corruption at the heart of her problem?

    It goes a lot deeper than just one trip. If Bronwyn got the chop(per) after one helicopter flight, then Ley has to go too.
