Biggest problem with Labor so far as I’m concerned is their buying into and adding to manufactured conflict.

Age wars, gender wars and so on.

Leave that crap to those in the business of limiting the news and focus on the real issues faced by the country and ordinary people. Same goes for all sides of politics.

It's a point many writers here have been saying all along about the "quite Australians". As mentioned before I use to live in Tony Abbott's electorate but I too moved out of Sydney. I ended up in an electorate that I never heard of and it is what they call a "bellwether" seat. It was held by 1.1% by the Liberal Candidate. This area is a place a lot of Sydney retirees come to live. I was not surprised that the Liberals picked up much more votes this time around, call it the retiree factor.

Tonight on the news, I heard Bowen saying that the Labor Party's Franking Credits policy was probably wrong and was prepared to let it go. Then he said something along the lines of "but it wasn't the reason as to why they lost the election". Well maybe not totally but it certainly meant a lot to enough voters in this area and many other retiree areas to vote against them. The point I'm trying make here is that they are still in denial, just own it, you people stuffed up!

I would not like to see Bowen take charge of the Labor Party, he was the one who said "if you don't like it you can vote against us". Well done champ, well done, what a wonderful guy you are, NOT!

Which is why they need a candidate from the Right of their Party which would be about the Centre of the population.

Shorten tried to pander to too many groups, it made the majority wonder if he was on the anti Anglo Saxon campaign of the far Lefties.

Coalition victory in Melbourne seat of Chisholm hands Morrison majority government

The Liberal Party has retained the eastern Melbourne seat of Chisholm with the electoral authority calling the result on Tuesday afternoon to hand a clear majority to Scott Morrison’s re-elected Coalition government.

The Prime Minister now has 76 seats in Parliament’s lower house, and his party is leading the count in two other seats Bass in Tasmania and Macquarie in NSW, putting a total of 78 seats well in sight.

Hmmm not sure about that I think this was the first crack...
https://www.smh.com.au/federal-elec...edes-delay-to-parliament-20190521-p51pgs.html

Cant get it through this financial year so it gets delayed 12 months. Plenty of time to thwart that promise.

Cmon ScoMo get parliament in place and put it through. Let the voting public experience the miracle, Reward the vote we have given you.
Sounds as though they heard your wish JB.

They will definitely get those immediate offsets through, one way or the other. It just won't be by 1st July.

Someone who can't accept the result of a vote is who doesn't understand the democracy that was bought, fought and paid for by our diggers. ScoMo worked his arse off and won. It's a good thing!

Yep, it's great that this election has rewarded small minded sloganeering scare campaigns with virtually nil policy developement.

If that's what people want then they got what they deserved.

Hence the appealingly low primary vote for both major parties. QLD being the perfect example.

As a West Australian I can confirm that Queensland is renown for setting a low bar when it comes to politics ;).
As Clive Palmer said, it's was the only way he got over the hurdles that led to a seat in the Reps.
Or was that Pauline in the Senate?
Fraser Anning?

On many of the Labor / Green rants posted after the election I keep reading about the "fear campaign" by the Liberals, it seems the old saying of "you see your own faults in others" still rings true.

For the past three years all of Australia has been smothered in a fear campaign from the Left / Green alliance that "we are all going to die"

I would suggest that the suggested fear of death is rather more threatening than anything the Libs put out there.

Because of this blizzard of BS, Many of the inexperienced, younger generation truly believe the world will end before 2030, nothing the Libs mentioned comes even close to this disgraceful act by the climate alarmists.

I believe that the silent majority who live and work outside the echo chamber look around and can't see any changes so they dismiss the whole Labor package

the alternate view is ...... what if it is true?

i do not know (and still struggle with bringing the woolly mammoth back to life), but think that every person owing 5 petrol powered cars each to go to the shops to buy a litre of milk, and every single consumed item being wrapped inside 7 layers of plastic, and fresh strawberries being flown around the planet every day, well, i think that cannot really be a great thing for nature for the long term.

the promised land is hopefully in the middle somewhere .........

Thats how bad labor policy was.

The great "lib fear campaign" is just the Australian lefties version of "Russian collusion".
Labor sucked a lot more than libs, failed to sell their message and insulted numerous groups. Not to mention a leader with as much appeal as stepping in dog sht.
Various media personalities are now trying to say labor went ok. Delusional stuff.
