Cooda, what explanation do you need?

Apparently (according to posters here), Tony Abbotts demise had nothing to do with his leadership skills, it was all due to a conspiracy amongst the main stream media to turn the electorate against him.

Pickering, Bolt and Hadley decided to revolt against this conspiracy, because they're all 'mates'. But the rest of the journalistic world apparently succumbed to the conspirators threats and just wrote what they were told to.

Sorry Hempy but you and I are going to have to agree to disagree over how we choose to interpret what we see on this thread.

But that's ok as our respective opinions carry equal weight. SFA.

The drama piece seems to have worked well for the conservatives, Tony went in hard for the Liberals as PM, hard work is done; so now is time for Mr Moderate to take over.
Take note of "can't change any policy without cabinet approval" mmmmm

My credibility seems to be taking a bit of a battering today.

Cooda 28/9/15
My gut feel at present is that he's another Rudd. But time will tell.
Bolt and Blair 2/10/15
Is anybody else picking up a hint of Kevin Rudd circa 2008 here
If these two are parroting me, I can understand why Hempy et al think that I'm a tin foil hat wearing, red necked, far to the right of Genghis Khan, crypto-fascist (rather than the slightly left of centre moderate that my friends know me to be).

Whilst I think we can all (even Hempy) understand Abbott's disappointment, even bitterness, over recent events, it's disappointing to see him doing exactly what he said he wouldn't do and sniping, however gently, from the sidelines. He knows the media well enough to know that they will inflate ANYTHING he says into a headline damaging both to him and the Liberal Party, so WTF he doesn't just go to ground and keep his lips zipped is beyond me.

He'll protect his legacy - whatever that is - far more effectively by resisting trying to put the record straight (in his eyes) and just keeping his mouth shut.

I'll be interested to see how many Liberals drift to the Australian Liberty Alliance.

Its manifesto presses a lot of popularist buttons but its corporate structure looks a bit suss.

The Parramatta gunman was wearing a long black robe. That and the fact that the MSM is following the code it always seems to follow when the perp. is 'ethnic' (or of one particular ethnicity) makes me suspect strongly that the perp. is of one particular ethnicity.

"Nothing to see here; just another case of workplace violence by a lone wolf whose religion is immaterial."

How many clichés can you fit into one sentence?

If I was OiC of security at one of the Grand Finals this weekend, I think I'd have an ulcer the size of a dinner plate. The poor buggers protecting these mass gatherings must be worried sick.

Any comment from our new PM yet? People may start wanting Tony back in charge shortly.

Reading todays news release about the latest government and opposition 'think tank' forum that has just finished 'Marshmallow Malcolm' is front and centre and ready to bend over to any ALP demands any time they like.

Melbourne man Omar Chandab accused of planning Syria fight demands Government overturn passport cancellation - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

And why are these people identified as part of the Muslim Commuinity? I would have thought they should be part of the general Australian community.

And I'm sure after the events today in Sydney, those on the left will continue to tell us how safe we are.

Well, I must say I'm missing him.
I haven't had a good laugh or a cringe for a while now.
I'm finding I have to rely on certain posters on this thread for those things, these days.
They're not quite as entertaining, however.

The media are certainly tiptoeing around the identity of the shooter.

"Man of Middle Eastern appearance".
"Wearing black robes".
"Yelling something out the front of the police station".

He's not a terrorist, it was an 'ideologically motivated crime'.

Yes, and keep in mind that his ideology is every bit as valid as yours.
Al Grassby told us so, all those years ago.

15 years old.
Immigrated to Australia from Iran.
Visited the Parramatta mosque prior to the attack.
Ran down the street shouting 'Allah Allah'.


Yep, just another 'lone wolf' attack from the religion of peace.
