Hmmm when you're so far to the right any movement towards the left probably would seem moderate to the bible thumpers.
But seriously its nearly as difficult to watch Moronson as it was watching $cabbott.
Now to fix this country's woes all we need do is pray....its a love thing you know.

I don't mind our politicians believing in a god, any god, but I believe its open duck season when a politician's religious beliefs/teachings are contradicted by their actions as a politician.

From what I understand Morrison and his family play a very active role in an evangelical christian church. Its been reported its the sort of church where people speak in tongues. You can't really get a more conservative or fundamental christian church outfit than that ........ yet you have Morrison the politician who has overseen some pretty dreadful (and unChristian) policy decisions / portfolios.

So, in my book its open duck season on the arsehole.

I wonder why he is so determined to back Peter Dutton

I would have thought it made more political sense to shaft him...the au pair events seemingly would have given him the opportunity to

Maybe I am misreading public sentiment...but he seems pretty universally despised...except by his media friends

I saw an elderly...well spoken lady asked her opinion of him...she lifted her mouth from her cup of tea...and said...he may well be the most disgusting man to have ever walked the face of gods good earth

Maybe a slight exaggeration ...but surely he would easily hold a spot in the top 10?

Haha Balance, I saw a lady asked the same question on tv, and she sort of squirmed a bit and said "He reminds me of an undertaker".
It just astounds me that he can stand straight faced and deny any lack of integrity. I mean FFS he personally used his position to help out some mates.
I can't believe he won the no confidence motion by 1 vote, thanks to old mate Kevin Hogan, and Mad as a hatter Katter, but more likely his own casting vote for himself, which does seem like a conflict of interest.

Yeah, just a touch.

The Libs are in damage control and this would've caused yet more infighting, more salvos from the far right loons, more leaks, more venom.

I don't agree with ScoMo standing by him, far from it, but I get the rationale.

GuySmiley commented Friday, 21 Sep 2018 at 2:25pm

.... that school funding decision does many of things including:

First, it kicks proper reform of the sector down the road a decade. Kicking reform down the road is what the LNP has constantly done for the last 5.5 years. Tax, debt/deficit, energy, environment, drought/water, university funding etc and now primary/secondary education.

Second, it locks in the over funding of the private school sector and under funding of the public sector.

Third, it continues the reactionary right's "battle of ideas" or "cultural wars" prosecuted by the white middle aged/old men of privilege inside the LNP.

Don't knock lovely Gladys, she has fixed up NSW and is doing a great job. We have no debt and the best infrastructure programs in the country underway right now. Lets look at Queensland...flat broke infrastructure at a standstill, cant even drive from the Goldy to Brisbane without a major drama. Ah yes and there's Labors Adani mine, Labor conceived years ago and Labor approved in Qld. All over NSW people are protesting against the Libs who had nothing to do with the bloody thing and couldn't stop it if they wanted to. I wonder how many manipulated souls are actually protesting in Queensland in front of Labor HQ. Regardless of what you think of Scott Morrison, I like people who can actually fix stuff. You don't even have to like the guy who builds your house, as long as he does a good job of it. Can any of you actually watch an interview with Bill Shorten and not feel he's reading from a poorly parroted script. I've named him "Bullshit Bill" because that's all I hear coming out of his mouth. Last election, he sent out millions of texts saying the Libs were about to do away with medicare, another lie in his big bag of them, but people fell for it. Are we really that stupid?. Please don't vote for him, the country will unravel so fast it will make your head spin

Gotta agree optimist re. Bill shorton charisma . The man just waffles. Waffles and waffles and waffles, and says nothing, because he's hiding everything.

But then again factobum could possibly be right too re. Scomo. Bluuuurt cough cough....sorry that wasn't easy.

Labor really are having it both ways with the adani thing. Quite pathetic really, that they think they can pull this off. But they probably will. Purely because the libs have made absolute fools of themselves. Both with the ongoing leadership rumblings, and the absolute rubbish they talk regarding coal and renewables.

Labor should've shown some balls and come out against adani, made a real issue of it. Because everyone with half a brain knows coal is dead. And now, renewables are actually becoming cheaper than other alternatives, yet the libs are still trotting out the same tired old lines.

They really are making fools of themselves.

But labor has no balls.. again. And are too chicken to make it a real issue. Probably because they actually have no conviction or solid policy on the issue, as their previous attempts have shown.

I actually think if they don't get something solid down now they're going to miss the boat and we'll end up like france. Where the vast majority of people support doing something but other issues will cancel it out.

You're probably right blindboy, but I really think the current political climate is a yearning for more. Much much more, and real change.

I really think the problem with bill is he represents everything that is broken about the labor party. He's been there a while now, but what does he really stand for? You wouldn't know, because while he might be "no bullshit Bill", he also actually says nothing. Lots and lots of words, but nothing coming out.

He's just a union dude that's done well. A union dude that's a stooge for continuing the neoliberal agenda. No conviction. Nothing man.

And you're probably right about him laying low. He did it last election. His plan is so obvious. Just sit back and let the liberals detract from themselves. Then came out with his couple of weeks whirlwind tour where he did actually came across alright.

But I'm not sure that'll work this time. People are crying out for authenticity and change.
