    There will be the protest bleed to the Greens which will preference the Labs.

    I'm not sure if the sexual predilections of Kerryn Phelps and Christine Forster are enough for a counter veiling sympathy vote.

    Bullying? Within the Liberal party?

    And in other news it's warm today in Darwin and apparently someone saw water in the ocean. :roflmao:

    As much as I currently sympathise with this view, I wonder how many old school Laborites will think the same after a term of Billy.

    We are damned if we do and damned if we don't

    Whether it was Turnbull or Morrison leading the LIB's, I think they would lose the next election, in my opinion they should have kept Abbott and lost the last election.
    The changes Shorten is suggesting, will have a bigger impact on lower and middle Australia, than on the top end.IMO
    The reality of it will sink in after it is enacted, like you said it will be interesting to hear the "white noise" after a term of Bill.

    Considering his union mates were backing maduro. And the fact he is a spineless little gimp who floats whatever direction the polls go. I'm going to say everything.

    I think he will be totally beholden to the postmodernists. It will be the UN, anti west, anti white agenda all the way.

    He will throw the old school Labor base, straight under a bus.

    That nobody effectively represents ordinary working people is the biggest failing of Australian politics in my view.

    The same sex thing will play well in Bondi and the western parts of Wentworth that are close to the inner city, but will be pretty ho-hum anywhere east of Double Bay. The lack of action on climate change is what will drive the protest vote as well as the ditching on a popular local member.

    From what I understand Dave Sharma is a shoe-in for Lib preselection. As Dutton is not PM, I would expect the Libs to hold Wentworth. There will be a swing against them, but it won't be anywhere near as violent as if the Village Idiot had become PM.

    Shorten came from the right wing of the union movement which always sold out the base, remember fighting for conditions and pay only for his old union to sell out with some shonky back room deal undermining everyone else, always a sniff of corruption in the air.

    In other words he will fit right into the space currently enjoyed by the right you wont see a difference from the current mob in lots of areas.

    Labor are Liberal lite at best while the power base is beholden to the right of the party.

    I think Labor polling has it neck-and-neck

    Correct Smurf will be interesting should Labor win power if the damage done to traning/employment conditions are at least rectified.

    My polling at my local pub is far more accurate than any ReachTel poll. ;) Last week when it looked like it was going to be Dutton the protest vote was on. Last night most people had reverted to normal programming.

    Didn't Rudd say he was "Howard Lite" , and it won him the election.

    Labor is scared of endorsing unions like the CFMEU (even though they take their money), but I see nothing wrong with moving towards the Centre because that's where most of the votes are, radical trade unions are on the wane and Labor knows it.

    That's the thing. Money. CFMEU and the Maritime Union merged around 6 months ago and they pull in around $130million a year. For the ALP it's a nice gravy train but also a leash as well.

    They spent a truckload of money in Longman from what I've read.

    Watch for yet another leadership change if they decide to "short" Shorten as well :)
