    In an attempt to stop endless new threads being started about various single issues relating to Australia's political parties, I have decided to start a few threads that are intended for the general discussion of each party. There will also be a thread started for the discussion of all minor political parties.

    Please note that all previous threads will be retained and may be used for discussion if you feel that they are more appropriate. However, any new threads in which the topic is about an issue relating to one of Australia's political parties will probably be merged into one of these new threads.

    If you feel that a topic about a particular political party is deserving of its own thread then please PM me and present your case.

    All peripheral political issues, such as elections, inquiries, reports or anything else that does not relate specifically to one political party, may have a new thread started about it.

    I will be copying this introduction into the first post of each of the new threads so it can be used as a point of reference. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

    This thread is for the discussion of the Federal Australian Labor Party (ALP).

    ALP Legislates on Farting

    I have often wondered how ridiculous the green movement could stoop, but the ALP have outvented them in quids.

    From the Australian.

    The Gumnut clan occasionally remonstrate about farting uncles and cousins, perhaps the ALP could set up a Fart Transfer Compensation Scheme for humans.

    I would be happy to set up a brokerage, for a fee, to transfer Fart Credits between the Government and the Guilty.

    Can we, the humble taxpayer, get some of that largess for eating where the burgers are better ?

    EDIT: I don't think the mods are too keen on new political threads.

    Can't complain about trying to reduce methane emissions, but I concerned about how such emissions are measured. Campbell Newman would not allow it, unless they were NP members of Parliament, but do we have bureaucrats visiting farms with methane measuring devices. Are public servants sitting behind our bovine friends waiting for farts to measure?

    Send all the cows to Tasmania.

    If Bob Brown can still breathe, it's a success.

    Had a good old laugh when Rudd said he wouldn't tolerate any criticism of Julia Gillard.

    Please will someone do something I think I'm going mad:banghead:

    Re: Rudd Mk2 Government

    You would think that if Combet was SOOOOO convinced and passionate about 'climate change' that he would be able to put petty differences aside in the name of the righteous fight.
    If he truly believed he would walk through hellfire and across broken glass to ensure action on 'climate change'. What better place to do that from than Minister?

    I love this quote from Combet.
    ‘‘My reasons are personal and are not attributable to the change in the leadership of the Labor Party this week, although this has provided a catalyst for my decision,” he said.

    Mixed messages anyone? They still have trouble with honesty even right at the bitter end.

    Re: Rudd Mk2 Government

    I cannot see Rudd having a united party while the hatred of the left will be back biting with revenge.

    The remnants of the Gillard supporters in caucas and cabinet will set out to embarrass Rudd where ever they can by leaking information just as Rudd did to Gillard.

    IMHO it will not be a happy Labor Party camp for many years to come.

    Yes it won't be long before the unions try to wrest back control. One would think the Rudd/ Gillard show, will become the Rudd/ Shorten show, very quickly.

    I believe you are spot on as this link provides futher disunity in this already fractured Labor Party.

    The labor Party are still very brittle at the moment and will be for some years to come.

    Now we know why Rudd acts like a juvenile. I wouldn't be too worried about that poll. They are rusted on Labor seats. Actually Rudd has no real friends...to get to know him is to get to hate him. The more mature you get the more you wake up to him, as this poll shows.
