Polls are REALLY strong for Labor. Hopefully this means less Greens in the Senate. We are in difficult times and need a government that can act. Consult other Parties, sure, but the government must be able to ACT!

Greens are just neoliberals anyway, long years of pandering to their wealthy inner city base has done that. That is why they killed both attempts to price carbon that Labor put up So I hope their number goes backwards. Hopefully Labor can convince the electorate to have a workable government.

Not absolutely essential I suppose—look at what Gillard achieved as a minority government but I think it would help if the government has a clear run for one term anyway.

Don’t think overmuch of Albanse, bastard voted THREE times against Gillard! Fuck him! But can’t be worse than ’Scummo!

Wish list: a real policy to deal with COVID19

The NBN FTTH rollout to be restarted, stuff this copper mess. Sell the NBN to the Future Fund, getting a nice help to the bottom line.

More money to the ABC, only real competition to bloody Merde-och.

More money to the CSIRO/BoM to research AGW with especial reference to Australia and into adaptation and mitigation efforts.

Cut the outrageous lurks like dividend imputation and giving SMSFs money when they hadn’t paid any fucking tax—money for jam for rich bastards that! Reform capital gains tax, apply a budget restoration levy—make it a poll tax, can’t avoid that. Yes, Labor has said it would not change dividend imputation and capital gains tax exemptions but if they control both Houses it can go through and nobody will remember 3 years later.

Work out a China policy that makes sense.

Undo neoliberalism—make CEO pay confidential again, present system just encourages bigger and bigger salary + bonus packages. This will be tough—why I don’t want the bloody Green Neoliberals to have a way of blocking legislation.

Anything else?

I doubt the political climate is right for large infrastructure spending what with our huge debt and deficit.

Labor has been in this position to many times before and lost for me to get to excited just yet. I still recall Howard buying peoples vote with a $4 week tax cut (Back then it was equated to the cost of a hamburger). Labor were killing him in the polls and they still lost. Same thing last election with Shorten. Scummo will offer bribes and with murdick prepared to lie black and blue for him, anything can happen.

True, but the primary votes have moved well into favoring Labor.

Any issues about or around the coming election can be discussed.

Is Palmer going to run again?

Will that idiot Bob Brown pull another stupid stunt and kill Labor’s chances in some seats?

Why do poor people get fooled by rich people?

I have no idea. It's common knowledge that often they get rich by lying, cheating and taking advantage of others. I've never considered a rich mans opinion over a poor mans, unless the question is about making money.

Most of the rich arseholes in my town are rich because they are just arseholes with no morals and are prepared to shit on everyone.

Scum land developers in cahoots with the council are the worst...

Polls continue very strong for Labor.

God we need change from the tired post-Howard Libs!

A new poll shows voters prefer Treasurer Josh Frydenberg as leader of the Liberal Party ahead of Scott Morrison.

The Roy Morgan poll of 1080 voters conducted earlier this week showed 38.5 per cent of Australians prefer Mr Frydenberg, ahead of Mr Morrison (31 per cent) and Defence Minister Peter Dutton (12.5 per cent).

Part of an email from Albanese:

Australia needs a new government. If it wasn’t clear before, the past fortnight in Parliament has made it abundantly clear.

In the past two weeks this government has literally delivered nothing for Australians.

They failed to tackle problems in aged care, health, spiralling costs.

Instead, we saw a series of desperate scare campaigns from Scott Morrison and Peter Dutton.
