I'll start:

channeling Simon Crean:


"So Peter Dutton has been on Melbourne FM radio where he raised taking the GST off electricity bills and having a Royal Commission into power companies. He might as well have Dutton for PM tee-shirts printed. @9NewsAUS #aulspol"

Huh, so we should believe that ?

The people who support Dutton are the hard Right of the Liberal Party who want to govern for a few people with high incomes and a hatred of the middle class.

So wages will be cut, services will be cut, more public utilities privatised, and living standards for the majority will fall.

The Libs are dysfunctional, they are wracked by ideological differences and are tearing themselves apart internally.

They are finished.

Yep, and I'm sure the states will just lurrrve forfeiting their GST income from power.

I think Dutto's a pretender and will probably lose his seat whatever happens.

The only solution is an election right now. No other option.

I don't agree with your reasoning Horace, but I do agree with your conclusion.

The liberal party is absolutely stuffed and I believe sooner or later a new Conservative party will come to the fore.

The sooner the better wayne. We need a viable stand alone Conservative party instead of a group of them hijacking the Govt.

Just one thing about the Coalition - they were 49/51 2PP with 12 months to an election.

They could have won it easily had it not been for the events of the last week.

Will we ever see a Statesman come to the fore again?
I think the days of statesmanship are over. We need real people in politics, Brawlers with balls willing to tell the Australian public the absolute truth

The ruatwd on from either side love the Statesman but the people that are sitting back looking to be convinced want truth. They what political multiple martial artists and the ability to cut to the chase in common language

No more so than the ranting from the Right about Shorten and their maniacal "Kill Bill" approach.

Every second word your hear from the coalition involves Labor and Shorten, the fact that they can't get their policies through the Senate is neither here nor there to them.

No one has defended Dutton yet, I can't believe he will get up, do the Libs really want to commit electoral suicide?, I think not, something else will happen.

In the real world long term success always comes from focusing on getting what you are doing right rather than pointing the finger at what others are doing wrong.

Careers, relationships, even people like musicians it's the same. Those who endure focus on getting their own stuff right not on tearing others down.:2twocents

I guess I'm lucky, the other half hates the news and t.v generally, so we watch recorded shows only.
The only snippets I get on politics, are on ASF, or the highlight pages on the web as I'm not subscribed to any paper.
Having said that, I can read 30 articles on Fairfax a month, but that just bags the LNP and shows pictures of silly Billy smiling. lol
Also forgot to add, Fairfax also say a carbon free future, is only a wish away.

As usual smurph, a profound statement, which could apply equally to both sides of politics.

Peter Dutton? Bill Shorten? I'd rather vote for Pauline...

When will our elected officials learn to stick to governing our country and being there for the electorate instead of feathering their bloody nests and stroking their egos?

The Libs are just mimicking the self implosion of those opposite in the Rudd/Gillard days.

I'm glad this guy talked about this on Nine this morning.
We have our own FOX news (News Corp) that is gutting Ausi politics.

If the liberals think Dutton is going to sell, they are headed for disaster!

i once checked out mps register of interests and found no one individual in the parliament had more direct shareholdings than dutton, he's an investor, we are investors, what does labor offer? putting the franking credit income to the axe and reducing 12 month capital gains discount from 50 to 25, how dutton could not be supported in here is a little bit beyond me ...

Always bet on the horse of self interest. ;)
