"Interesting to speculate on the result had Tony been 'leading' the Coalition troops into battle..."

Considering you didn't pick the actual election result I'd say your credibility when it comes to speculating on alternative outcomes is all waffle..

Looks like the corrupt bankers boy turnbull has achieved yet another clustafeck that will cost the country dearly. Meanwhile them 'carbon' profits just keep rolling in for the select few..

Hate to say it, FB, but I think you are correct. It seems Malcom really misread the electorate.

Wait....Trump would never win...Brexit will never happen...maybe it's time they took their collective snouts out of the through. But don't get me wrong, BS as PM scares me.

Binghi,
Looking forward to your next post when you lay yet another selection of Andrew Bolt's 'words of wisdom' on us.
Oh, and please don't hesitate to let us know what the rest of Murdoch's minions think, as well, OK?

Um, I hate to be a sh1tp1cker, but if Tony was still leading the Coalition troops, there wouldn't have been a battle.

Y'know?

3% swing against Malcolm and a 10% swing against the ex monk. Does that spell it out !
Why are the votes not being counted on sun and mon? didn't the Libs get rid of penalty rates..
Would love too see the fool Dutton thrown overboard but alas he may scrape in!

Boat looks too seaworthy for any labor era invasion.

...and they are not mainly military aged men in designer tee shirts, carrying mobile phones.

Michael Smith's 'Shaz of Christmas Island's photos' from the last invasion were eye-opening to say the least. Worth 'Barney Googling'.

You tell me and we'll both know. It's a worry, actually.

Most amusing that Turnbulls catch phrase was vote Lib for stability and he is already facing a leadership spill.
If Phony Tony gets the Guernsey then he will have to do a deal with Hanson who he helped put in jail. You couldn't make this stuff up!
Labor to form government anyone!!!!

I was thinking the same thing myself this morning. (Must ask my doctor to increase the dosage. )

If Turnbull is rolled (as he deserves to be), there would seem to be little reason remaining for the primarily leftist independents to support the Coalition.

Of course, the Nationals could always ditch the losers and link up with the resurgent party.


At the local level, we have a Territory election in August with polling suggesting the ruling CLP will be left with 2 seats out of 25. They have called for nominations for preselection to replace our recently disgraced Deputy Treasurer. I'll be interested to see who is foolish enough to enter the campaign with such a short lead-in time and inheriting the baggage left by the predecessor.

Is it just me or does the fact that vote counting will resume on Tuesday highlight how stuffed this country is? We can't even decide who the government will be without a couple of RDOs and it is not like an election occurs every week.

Interesting observation made whilst Tony Abbott were still Prime Minister...

Reputedly this is to cover for any security 'anomalies' highlighted when a whole bunch of ballot papers went missing somewhere in a previous event.

Having said that, I am aware of some quite strange arrangements for collection (or delivery) of ballot boxes in the local region. Then there are reports of some polling places running out of ballot papers at some booths. It doesn't make for a lot of confidence in the system.

Who is going to win? Certainly not the Australian people! We seem destined for another period of uncertainty and instability. Hang on everybody, there's more turbulence ahead!

Why can't we just vote online?

You could hover your mouse over the name and it would tell you their policies, how cheesy their grin is, previous criminal convictions etc.

Instant result, much cheaper than paying all those people to cross names off a list, nobody can vote twice and best of all no running the gauntlet of the idiots and their "how to vote" cards.

I urged Malcolm Turnbull to stay: John Howard

John Howard's continuing influence has been underlined by revelations the former prime minister helped convince Malcolm Turnbull to stay in politics.

"I think I played a part in persuading him not to retire," says Mr Howard

"He spoke to me the day after he'd made his announcement (to leave) and said, 'I think I've done the wrong thing'," recalls Mr Howard of the conversation six months ago. "I said to him, 'Change your mind - the party will be delighted and you'll increase your majority in Wentworth'.

"I was delighted he stayed. Perhaps some of his colleagues weren't, but I was. He adds a dimension."


Nocookies | The Australian


Today, thanks in part to John Howard, a 'delighted' party is considering the new 'dimensions' explored by the turnBull led Liberal party...
