    The problem is smurph, by your prognosis, they will have to bite the bullet and go down some track.
    More of the same and lack of action, doesn't sound like an option, in the near future.

    There is a reason a lot dislike him IMO, most have met someone like him in their lives. He comes over to me, as that mate that is your best friend, until you are no longer any use to him.
    Just my opinion.

    Well I'm an eternal optimist that our elected ministers are there to look after ordinary Aussies rather than their own back pocket, yep I'm bound to be disappointed.

    So ... Electricity pieces being capped at a price that doesn't exceed the CPI is a no brainier to me. Same could be said for private health insurance, fuels prices etc.

    Some egghead over in the US i just listened to said that under Trump, the rich gets tax cuts and subsidies. For the rest of America, they get to enjoy racism, xenophobia... and two jobs, each? :xyxthumbs

    But I'm sure our pollies are different. We're not at all competitive about corporate tax cuts, privatisation and funny definition of taxable income.

    You do realise that spending food "on restaurants" aren't necessarily "restaurant", restaurant. Not at some $53 a week it ain't.

    At that rate, eating out or ordering in mean fast food or Maccas family restaurant.

    So it's due mainly to being poor and overworked, not due to living it large.

    For comparison purposes... I got a gift card couple years ago for a fancy night out for 4. One dinner goes for $790. No meal at a restaurant costs under $35 per person. I know, I looked before heading to maccas.

    Well since this is a Scomo thread and everyone on here seems to be an expert in running the country... What should he focus on?

    No 1. for me is to get rid of this PM assassination capability. Elected PM's are just that - can't be knifed without an election.

    No 2. for me is to address the drought crisis. No easy solution here and to be honest I have no idea what the solution would be. Lots of Pros and Cons on both sides ...

    No 3. for me is to cap rising energy, private health insurance, fuel prices etc to CPI.

    That would be No 1. for me, but the corporate donors would scream blue murder if a government tried that.

    No 1 for me, is to get industry moving and get jobs happening.
    No2 convince people to take the jobs, it is o.k creating jobs, but people don't want to leave the Cities.
    Unfortunately all the mines and towns can't be attached to a bulldozer and dragged to the Cities.
    No3 Start and get teaching and nursing out of uni's and back into hospitals and teacher training colleges where they can work out if it is their bag before 3 years of uni.

    Good point but Scomo has never being one to shy away from a challenge (IMO). But I guess being PM would put some shackles on that now .. unless he can garner a posse with similar traits ...

    No3. Is an interesting topic to me - to me in both occupations you either excel or become the new normal. Either way the skills are transferable to any community / city / country. However, having said all that I've always been an advocate of gaining "hands on" experience and trust of the "local community". Post that is to me is a lifestyle decision (Ie. money, location etc)

    What are we, Communist China?

    Well, except for that no.2, the comrades seem to be working hard at solving their water/drought/desert issue better than we can. Beside running a few school charities and tax benefits, I don't think much is being done about it here.

    The LNP are looking at either of two lesbians to run for the vacated seat of Wentworth ...... antidote for the Greens candidate.....what does that say about merit, quotas and cynical representation.
