That's how I feel (and probably most of the voting public) about the state of Australian politics at the moment.

Leyonhjelm and the greens.

What could possibly go wrong?

Only been back home in Australia for a few days, after six weeks free of Australian media, I notice that Shorton and Co get quite a lot of direct to camera opportunities to put their case and make their points whilst Turnbull usually only gets pre-recorded sound bytes shown or very short excerpts from interviews he has given. Mainly noticed this on Sky and Ch.9.

Disregarding the usual and anticipated howls of protest from the Ladies of The Left, what do the rest of you think? Maybe I am being too quick to judge?

Yet more corruption exposed at an Australian university...

"...When marine scientist Peter Ridd suspected something was wrong with photographs being used to highlight the rapid decline of the Great Barrier Reef, he did what good scientists are supposed to do: he sent a team to check the facts.

After attempting to blow the whistle on what he found — healthy corals — Professor Ridd was censured by James Cook University and threatened with the sack. After a formal investigation, Professor Ridd — a renowned campaigner for quality assurance over coral research from JCU’s Marine Geophysics Laboratory — was found guilty of “failing to act in a collegial way and in the academic spirit of the institution”.

His crime was to encourage questioning of two of the nation’s leading reef institutions, the Centre of Excellence for Coral Studies and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, on whether they knew that photographs they had published and claimed to show long-term collapse of reef health could be misleading and wrong…"

Perhaps the reason for reduced number of sound bites is the number of interviews they have each conducted.

I understand that Sky have been counting interviews and while Shorten has made himself available on TV and radio for 28 interviews, Turnbull has given only 8.

Top choice of dinner guests, Malcom, not!

bosnich71 18th Jun 2016 12:14

Sops .....not surprising though.

megan 19th Jun 2016 02:58

SOPS, I'm not so sure about it being a bad idea. It's got all the media talking about the hate preachers. Might it give the preachers pause? I frankly don't know, but why let them slink about under their vile rocks unnoticed?

SOPS 19th Jun 2016 08:28

Good point, Megan. It also has the Greens tying themselves in knots. The are trying to condem what these morons are saying, without referring to them directly as morons (because you can't offend Muslims, no matter how vile the stuff they preach), but if they don't say something it looks like they are supporting their vile stance on homosexuals.

Why these people are even allowed in the country is beyond me.

Flying Binghi 19th Jun 2016 10:49

Seems some of me posts are a bit 'racey' for the mods as they keep disappearing..;) Anyway, back to-it...

Top choice of dinner guest indeed. turnBulls dinner guest has either got some serious personal issues with women, ...or there's some other influence...:hmm:

"...the national president of the Australian National Imams Council, has said in online videos that females will be “hung by the breasts in hell” and that women should not even look at men..."

Sleazy hewson starts to panic. One part of the Brexit battle were to get rid of the costly global warming idiocy afflicting the UK. That global warming profiteer hewson must be worried it will hit his profits in Australia..:hmm:

"...Speaking on ABC radio, former Liberal leader John Hewson criticised both leaders for failing to acknowledge the full consequences of a Brexit for Australians..."

Never seen such a weak electoral campaign as that just completed by 'Marshmallow' Malcolm.

Election campaigns are not an intellectual exercise, if they were Malcolm would win all hands down, but, by and large, the Australian people cannot be bothered to examine and evaluate the finer points of an intellectual exercise, they would prefer to watch a dog fight.

Shorten/ALP/CFMEU are the experts in this arena and the LNP should have got down and dirty too and exposed the ALP for what they are, the political arm of the totally corrupt militant trade union movement.

The pundits are forecasting a LNP victory but it could have been so much more decisive. Shame on you Malcolm.
