    I'm a shareholder but I can't support Dutton for a variety of reasons.
    Then again - my tax bill is such that I can't cash in franking credits anyway.

    If that's really an issue (and it's not for the majority of voters) then maybe the Govt should try the old Paul Keating trick.. PK vowed the ALP would support the GST in the senate if the Libs won the 1993 election. Some swingers then realised the scary GST would really happen after all and voted Labor instead, so they won the unwinnable election.

    Apply the above to the franking credits and save a few seats maybe?

    It is not Liberal policy to change franking credits policy.
    What does it matter who leads? Shouldn't it be someone with a slight possibility of winning?

    Dig deep enough and no one would be eligible for citizenship and public office ....if the lawyers had their way.

    I suspect this issue is just theatre whipped up by the otherside of the fence

    Peter can't run until he gets his house in order. At the moment it's got broken windows.

    Pretty obvious that Dutton is the great pretender, at least for now.

    Whilst I am not keen on Labor's tax proposals, they're starting in the wrong place in my view, right now surely the most important step is to get some sort of workable government in place be that Liberal, Labor or anyone else.

    Quite true, and if Turnbull leaves and the Libs lose his seat they will be down to a no seat majority, creating more uncertainty.

    I doubt if the likes of Dutton, Alan Jones, Hadley, Abbott, are thinking "well, that good idea at the time went well" Still, Dutton will have plenty of time to contemplate all this after he has lost his seat at the next election.

    The only certainty they have now, is a better candidate than Shorten. Lol

    Is it true what Dutton did to those aboriginal kids when he was a copper?

    I think its bs but did hear the story before (but no names). Can't find anything on it though.

    When he was a copper he rounded up some aboriginal troublemaker kids and drove them around in a paddywagon for 7 or so hours. Then dropped them off in the middle of nowhere.

    I'm sure the story is legit but not sure if it was Dutton. It was being pushed around the net by various social media.

    Jeez have you re read that post?
    I think it's BS.
    I don't know who it was about.
    Can't find anything that said it, so I might have dreamt it.
    But it was Dutton.
    I'm sure it's true, but not sure it was Dutton, but I said it was.
    I heard it on social media.
    Have you ever heard of slander? OMG lol

    Because its a new tactic from one of the left groups. Either getup or the Greens. They are targeting swing seats.

    Heres the story I think they mixed it in with.

    I had a hard time finding the original story.
