    NSW election on Saturday - I reckon the Libs will win it.

    Then we have that monster federal budget :)

    Not over yet - The Howard Govt came back from a polling deficit similar to this.

    But they'll probably need a bigger boat :D

    Dunno, I think many of their base feel betrayed and disenfranchised.

    I will never vote Liberal in the Senate, ever again, and will only vote Liberal in the Reps if there is a slim chance of keeping the Postmodernist tw@ts out of Govt. Most of my friends feel the same.

    What puzzles me is why those whom Labor have completely forsaken in favour of smartarse academics, self loathing inner city trendies, and alphabet soupers, still vote for them.

    ScoMo is coping a pasting. Jack Waterford strips him bare.

    Prime Minister's ever-diminishing credibility

    "How do you know when a politician is lying?" the old joke went. "You see his lips are moving."

    One rarely needs a polygraph, encyclopaedic memory or deep forensic talent to tell when most politicians are being economical with the verite. Some have big tells, which would forever disqualify them from a serious game of poker. Rates of eye blinking, for example. Shifts to bluster and dissembling, often prefaced by the claim of being very offended by any suggestion of being less than completely straightforward with the public, or the questioner. Running for cover, initial threats (quickly withdrawn) of defamation writs, and efforts to parse old, now embarrassing, statements in a search for a proposition that can be claimed to sit comfortably with diametrically opposing assertions of what was said or done.

    A good Premier justly re-elected. When she first went to school, she couldn't even speak English.

    The state has the strongest economy in the country, and there are big infrastructure spends to come. Watch NSW go now.

    You could conceive of a worse way to undermine your Partys brand - but this has to be very hard to beat. Check it all.

    'She doesn't speak for us': Liberals disown Teena McQueen after Q&A appearance

    Senior Liberals are disowning the party's hard-right vice president Teena McQueen following her train wreck performance on the ABC's Q&A program.

    It can also be revealed that the Liberal Party's most senior officials, including president Nick Greiner, had twice requested that she cease going on Sky's right-wing, after dark programs. But she refused, saying the money she received to appear in her capacity as a party official was too much to relinquish, according to sources familiar with the conversation.

    Che ? You don't reckon that the train wreck of a Q&A with Teena McQueen and the subsequent disowning by the Liberal Party is newsworthy ?

    From what I've read, it would appear she is a serial train wreck, all Q & A have to do is wave a handfull of dollars then they get the show they want.:roflmao:

    There in one sentence is most of the problem with our current batch of politicians on all sides.

    In it for the money and nothing else.

    Politics is a case where the more you pay, the worse you get. If politicians were paid an average wage, and by that I mean the statistical average down to the cent, then it would get rid of these types and put a more normal range of people in parliament who actually represent the population. :2twocents

    Malcolm Turnbull didn't get any money and in fact came out negative.

    He donated all his income to charity. And donated $1.75 million to the Liberal Party.

    Then they knifed him. His pension? Well, that's another topic altogether :D

    Poor old Malcolm was just like losing a nice coach, everyone loved him, but he just couldn't get the results.
    He meant well, struggled getting the message across and the players didn't have a lot of faith in his game plan.
    Unfortunately that is the way of life, it happens to the Dockers all the time.:xyxthumbs

    Wilson Tuckey playing for the Dockers would be a good analogue of Dutton / Abbott playing for the Turnbull Govt - with similar results :D

    Isn't that just reinforcing the point though?

    Someone who seemed to be intelligent and not in it for the money found themselves as PM.

    Didn't last long and the rest made sure of it.

    Likewise the perception certainly of myself and a few friends who have given the idea some serious thought is that anyone who gave it a red hot go wouldn't last long in practice. The details are anyone's guess but one way or another you're not going to last long doing a good job.

    It's like a heavily unionised boys club really. Anyone doing well makes the rest look bad and so needs to be removed or discredited ASAP and that's what happens. :2twocents

    CLIMATE CUTS, COVER-UPS AND CENSORSHIP

    30.04.19BY CLIMATE COUNCIL
    The Climate Council’s report, ‘Climate Cuts, Cover-Ups and Censorship’ provides a detailed overview of the Australian government’s approach to climate change since the election of the Liberal-National Coalition government in 2013. The period is characterised by slashing climate science funding, cutting effective climate change programs, rejecting the expert advice of national and international bodies, senior ministers making publicly misleading claims, a lack of credible climate policy, and consistently covering up poor performance.

    This is the defining policy and leadership failure of the last decade.
