Wentworth by-election.

Post by dissilymordentroge »

On ABC TV this evening four of the panelists were standing as indepentents in the seat of Wentworth. The overall effect was an absolute disaster for the Liberals. Labour and Liberal candidates declined to sit on the panel so can only blame themselves. However, what’s the bet that if the Nasty Party gets back in again they’ll reek revenge on the ABC for tonight’s program?

I think the libs have lost wentworth

Unless there is a massive unexpected support for Labor, Phelps will shit in on ALP preferences. Libs are farqed.

Voting For An Independent In Wentworth Will Lead To Instability, Says Nation’s Fifth Prime Minister Since 2013

A vote for an independent is a vote for unpredictability, Australia’s temporary Prime Minister told voters in Wentworth today.

Mr Morrison, who overthrew previous Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who himself overthrew previous Prime Minister Tony Abbott, said only the Liberal Party could offer stability in Wentworth.

“Independents may look like an appealing option, but they’re an unknown quantity. When you vote for a major party like the Liberals, you know who you’re going to get,” Morrison said.

Mr Morrison, who is the nation’s fifth Prime Minister since 2013, said what his party offered was stability. “Nothing says stability like a hastily called byelection brought about by the knifing of a sitting Prime Minister”.

The Wentworth byelection will be held on Saturday, with the general election expected next month.

So far at 7.50 PM it looks like the Libs are going to be taught a lesson. Question is, will they learn anything? So long as the loony right climate change deniers and Christian extremists are still given a say nothing will change. Maybe I’m giving away my age but I keep wondering what would Bob Menzies think of all this.

YAY, The Libs are being taught a lesson. Question is will they learn anything or go on allowing the loopy extreme right to lead them around by the nose?

I am pleased she won....not so pleased with that egocentric virtue signalling speech. Up herself too much. She won yes.....I said she would.....I knew she would because the blue rinse brigade liked Turnbull etc.

But.......she will be hard to dislodge now. Fine by me.

They are putrid, the Libs. Seriously 'on the nose' , and the sooner they're out of office the less harm they can do.

Morrison is a caricature of a human being. Must be all that 'belief' stuff that makes him appear like a creature from a different dimension.!

If only. :sad Nope, the fact is Scott Morrison is walkig talking proof of zombies. His setting is 'scumbag pollie', but his disguise is beneficent religious.. or at least, that is how he sees himself. Deluded is an apt description.


The fervour he managed last night at the losers gathering was a bit alarming really. He and Josh Fryberg ( uh hum excuse the pun) put on a revival show. :roll

But the chanting of 'Scomo' etc ad nauseum was way way too much.

I guess all his buddies from the Horizon Church, and Evensong, no doubt, insured a rousing rabble. :roll

Actually this isn’t funny as in Victoria & parts of Tasmania fundamentalists Christians are joining the Liberal Pary in thousands. in some Electorates their membership is at 30% and climbing.
Should we be afraid? Well, with any group who believe God is on their side we should be scared silly.

it's a common problem when attempting to quote newspaper articles. There is usually a word in the story that is triggers it. I know 'sex' is one word that triggers it, but there are probably others. Monk has been told to fix it but the lazy bastard is to busy dreaming about apples.

I’ve not had the problem when using the word ‘sex’ on other threads. Other posters have been able to use that term on the same thread.
The post I was attempting to make had no quotes from newspaper articles. Don’t want to make you paranoid but maybe we have a hacker lurking on the membership list? It’s happened before on forums I’ve moderated.

I can think of better things to dream about than apples. Maybe he’s terrified the codlin moth is just waiting to attack?

fisherman had a problem quoting the word sex the other day .... it's a temperamental glitch. Doesn't happen all the time.
