Has anyone actually been listening to the MP s lately. Morrison, Bishop, Dutton et al.?

Seems they've all been taking lessons in Trump speech.

What I mean is, they make statements of such abysmal content, and expect us to believe it is truth. :WTF It seems the fashion now for the Liberals is to assert , not inform. I'm SICK TO DEATH of these arseholes.

It really IS SICKENING.

it's less about policy these days, and more about personally attacking opponents and hyperbole.

they're all guilty of it

OH NO. HOWARD
I heard him rabbiting on and turned off, the other night.

WHY MUST?? they keep resurrecting this awful skeleton in Australian political history.!! The man is so ............. self-satisfied, and such a betrayer of the Australian people. I really wish NO media spoke to this man. He still HAS WAY TOO MUCH influence in Australian public life, whether it be his awful lingering policies, or his resurrection on his political opinions. I honestly have to say, this man I never want to hear his voice ever again.
I consider him the most destructive PM to the Australian Way of Life, since Federation.

CHINA has CORRUPTION down pat. The government RUNS the corruption. In all walks of life, in all provinces and penal settlements, like TIBET.
Corruption is how China operates... convoluted, dense and fearsome.

The NBN? ... Australia will become more and more a third rate country, with Malcolm's NBN as our nemesis.

that doesn't always work

SO... we have a budget coming up. I've had Q&A on, but find the whole thing a waste of time.

Can anyone show me ONE LNP politician, that has said ANYTHING that can been taken as anything but BS spin on their policies. They seem not to have any understanding of reality. This suggestion that $50 a week extra for Newstart is a BAD IDEA? :WTF

Yeah i've got Q&A on at the moment and saw that.

The (twice repeated) lie that to raise benefits, money would need to be taken from someONE else ... typical scare tactic hinging on the public perception on unworthiness of welfare recipients.

When of course, if they all stopped photocopying their arses, we could raise benefits and house the homeless.

EXACTLY.!!

This shitfight of lies the LNP is laying on us to buy their lies is just laughable, IF YOU LIVE THERE.

IF you live in the safe cosy world of comfortable, you probably haven't got a clue. So will believe what suits them. I just want some facts. YOU KNOW.?

This political BS is seriously ON THE NOSE.!

Give someone else a chance..? Might as well. The GREENS.. !! COULD NEVER be worse than the LNP COALITION.!

I don't have enough yearly income to pay income tax. You want to be there.?
Nope? Not surprised.

BUT, I still have to pay tax, known as the GST. Once upon a time before Howard, Pensioners who didn't get enough income, paid NO TAX. Same with Newstart allowance. Never up to the level of paying income tax, but still must pay GST.

NOW, we pay tax on most financial transactions, in the form of GST. SO, arguments AGAINST raising the Newstart allowance , where basically every dollar goes on LIVING EXPENSES.. not holidays, no dinners out, no movies .... but still paying tax, are attempts to lay blame on the most vulnerable in our society. Nope.. they'd rather give tax cuts . SO you SEE? None of this helps the poorer people. NONE OF IT.

HEY LNP COALITION!!!
STOP DEMONISING UNEMPLOYED PEOPLE.

THERE are more unemployed, than jobs, BUT you still feel empowered, as a GOVERNMENT. !!! FFS, to continue beating them down, thinking you are playing to your ELECTORATE.!!! Well maybe you are.. lots of greed in Australia, lots of apathy to the plight of others.. :sad

Um, we gave our kids inferior technology after a once in a century mining boom so China could buy our resources cheaply. We don't act in our own interests: China does!

The Greens are a neocon Party every bit as rightwing as the Nats and Libs. Their former ideals get lip service at best.

Ummmm, you hide in a bunker, you “stick your head over the parapet” as you shelter behind said parapet. You shelter IN a bunker.

No biggie, but a broken metaphor like that is like nails on a blackboard to me. You don’t say “it is the squeaky wheel gathers no moss” do you?

Stick your head over the bunker. You could stick your head OUT the bunker I guess, through an entrance or a gun slit etc.
