I’ve never been into cooked breakfasts, a good homemade muesli the best Greek yogurt I can find and plenty of seasonal fruits, same with my wife .... unless a buffet is on offer and then she goes in head first ... bacon, eggs, tomatoes, mushroom and then she has her muesli all the while saying she has to get her money’s worth! She’s a disgrace.

With the election iminient does anyone give the Liar from the Shire any chance?

Personally, I’m thinking it’s going to be a landslide to Labor, Antony Green will be calling it about the time the polling booths open. Any real interest ought to be in the big names that will be voted out (Abbot? Dutton? Barnyard? Hunt?) and the state of infighting in the LNP post the apocalypse.

Like Andy said.

24hrs is a long time in politics.

Its going to be a long 5 weeks, whenever that actually begins....and I've lost count of how many government ads seen and heard.

As for Abbott, my heart sank when he got elected, and I would find great satisfaction in seeing him lose to Zali.

Never underestimate a well know Independent with integrity who is not a career politician.
Our local NSW Independent won his second term in office in the recent election with the highest primary vote in every voter booth.

Time weill tell.

Again.

Geeeez you guys need to grow some ..... because of electoral boundary redistributions Scomo has already notionally already lost 4 seats and therefore the election and government.

Two of those four seats are in Victoria and please let me reassure you it will be armageddon for the LNP in Victoria, the state that has only voted in two LNP state governments in the last 20 plus years and the tradional home of the Liberal Party of Menzies and Fraser. The right-tards in the LNP can talk about their base all they like, the former moderate liberal voters of Victoria are red hot angry and will vote accordingly.

The trouble for the LNP is for the last 6 years they have taken Murdoch as their base and Jones as the man in thestreet ... wrong

Just heard that Price has today signed off on the last environmental approvals for Adani, that decision might go down well with the yokels of FNQ but voters everywhere else concerned for the environment will take a different view ... the LNP are trashing the joint on the way out

Frydenberg, the smirking smooth-sayer, failed Mr NEG and failed treasurer, all ambition and no substance, is also likely to be unemployed soon, a good thing. Also hoping Hunt the worse environment mininster ever goes down.

"The Morrison government has moved to end a damaging split over the Adani coal mine and granted the controversial project its final Commonwealth environmental approval.
The mine still needs approvals by the Queensland Labor government before it goes ahead."

"After days of threats and protest by Queensland Coalition MPs, federal Environment Minister Melissa Price announced on Tuesday the final approval relating to the mine's impact on groundwater.
She said the approval was granted on the basis of scientific evidence, not internal political pressure."

Reckon this'll influence anything?

Looks like more political LNP pontification to appease certain QLD factions.

As for the effect on polling I think there would be a bounce in areas that are going to benefit, but for the majority of Australians it would have to be seen for what it is, stuck in the past politics.

Besides I was under the impression that no bank in the world wants to back Adani.

And even after today's announcement "Environment Minister Melissa Price said on Tuesday the project still needed nine further approvals from the Federal and Queensland state governments before mining can start."

Not a betting man for two reasons - a teacher told me that you never see a bookie going to the races in a tram and two went out with a bookie’s daughter for awhile. Daddy’s house was a four story terrace in East Melbourne, confirming my teacher’s guidance.

None the less labor ought to be unbackable odds.

Ha no that was the liberal attack ad slogan combined with a timely video release of Daley claiming that Asian immigrants are “taking the jobs” of young Australians. ... They are being replaced by young people from typically Asia with PhDs,” he said.

Not sure if that was the only reasons for the Lib win but it certainly put a stop to the momentum he had been gathering.

The vegans don’t want you to stop eating animals do they ?

They just want industrial livestock practices to be reformed. If you don’t agree there’s something wrong going on.

Scomo is a proper piece of shit. Not a fit and proper person to be running a McDonald’s drive through let alone be leading the country.

Watch Dominion on YouTube if you dispute that there’s a comprehensive change of thought required in order to feed the world.

It’s not about the vegans , Indo. That’s an ad hominem diversion from addressing the topic.

It’s about HOW we source our food, not what we eat. Watch the section in the documentary about the egg laying chickens. The vast , vast majority of eggs are provided by a small group of farms - 50 I think - which aren’t run by “poor Aussie farmers who battled the drought “ .

It’s Scomo protecting big businesses with unconscionable business practices in order to maximise profit. Same as he always does.

The fact that he’s vilifying the protesters and that he’s got the attorney general threatening $420K fines and personally bankrolled lawsuits ( hahah ! ) shows just how ruthless the LNP are when it comes to defending the rights of their donors to make as much profit as possible at any expense.

No person or animal should be treated as those chickens get treated.

Watch the docco. Forget that animals are killed, that’s necessary. Check how they are forced to live.

Criminal!
