@sykpan,

In 2016, very few Americans said they were voting conservative either, but Michael Moore knew what happened in the privacy of a voting booth.

You've spent years tearing apart a shadow party while remaining wholly silent on the inept regime in power.

$40bn given to profitable businesses while public systems fail?

That shit is unforgivable. Like, RWNJs still bemoan Whitlam and his profligate spending, yet look at his legacy. He made our country robust, fair, and shifted us into the modern age. LNP spending is orders of magnitude greater and it's a selfish free-for-all.

And that's just one example from a near weekly serving.

But yeah, Shorten ate a sausage sanga the wrong way...

sorry, you are wrong

Ive said several times that morrison is possibly the most corrupt government ever

Ive also said trump scared the shit out of me

sorry again, but you partisans are so sensitive, you get caught up on all the criticisms and somehow see it as support for the other side

I used to get all defensive too, until I gave up on 'my side'...

(they actually gave up on me first....)

Im just non partisan now, about as non partisan as one can get

which is the people labor need to convince...

Noel forgot sanitation... but anyway, our greatest orator on our other great orator.

"It wasn't the big reforms to health or education or China; it was the fact that he (Whitlam) put sewerage into western Sydney, in the western suburbs of places like Melbourne... they're the practical things he did that changed the way we live."

'in 1972, 17.2% of the Australian population were not connected to sewerage... The program was abolished in 1977 by the incumbent Fraser Government.[9][10] Consequently, many communities struggled to connect to sewerage for decades afterwards.'

The reason Albo hasn’t been around , is that it’s coming on summer and the little Aussie battler has been busy mowing the lawns of his 5 eastern suburbs homes. It’s Bills zingers that we really miss though… mind you, there’s been a few popping up again lately from the other troops…. Perhaps bill has a zinger school for aspiring losers.

Given that nothing I have ever seen from you remotely resembles that, maybe you should give us a link or three to back it up. If not I will just continue to assume that you are just another noisy right winger with no consistent position except to attack Labor and the left.

people are allowed to have freedom of thought blindboy... why are you so hostile to anyone who doesn't see the world exactly as you?

it really is not healthy... for you... or society...

much of your post above is illogical, it's just a 'rambling' personal attack...

seriously dude, if Im so full of bullshit, then you should have nothing to worry about

one thing I do not do is lie on here, it's all there mate... look it up... I ve bagged morrison several times... not least for his 'bridge to nowhere' stimulus package, amongst a heap of things...

Very good point. Macron is turning more nationalistic due to threats from the right in the upcoming elections in 6 months.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2021/10/13/frances-2022-presidential-race...

He's also on a path to grab power in EU; Brexit left a vacuum, Angela leaving...He's been working on this for a while. The fact is, Biden shafted him behind his back and stupid Scomo goes to new low to cover for him.

France and US have strained relationships for a while and we should leave them in that vacuum. I hate being a US puppet.

"Seriously dude, if Im so full of bullshit, then you should have nothing to worry about."

Exactly, Sepp!

You've fallen apart, and joined the ranks of your simpatico stooges. And with the addition of id's dad, Hutchy 91, we've finally nailed our Shemp on here!

No correspondence need be entered into.

You're more like specimens to be looked and pointed at now. And studied. Always the intent, not the content, of the posts.

Pity, perhaps, but there it is. Your personal dissolution is complete.

In your mind, you're the non-partisan, 'both sides', ennobler. But in reality, on here, a 'false equivalence' poster boy, and the arch enabler. An enabler of all the ridiculous Right and their anti-social media's shoddiest 'news and opinion' product. A social media, surreptitiously informed by the usual corporate media suspects anyway in the main (which you've never seemed to get a handle on at all), and yours in particular, clogged with US content, poorly digested, and then regurgitated on here...garbage in, worse garbage out.

Thus your Sepp moniker.

But anyway, don't just take my word for it, by any means. Haha! For all you other residual forelock-tuggers, here's Stuart's word from on high!

"You've spent years tearing apart a shadow party while remaining wholly silent on the inept regime in power....

Kudos for maintaining this pretense of partisanship, it really has been a long stretch of time, but the ongoing absence of nuance or insight makes it painfully clear you're on your own road to Damascus. Read: conversion to conservatism...

And that's just one example from a near weekly serving...

You're anonymous, no-one particularly cares. Just own it..."

Two of the 'gang of four' are already bathing and luxuriating in their chosen land, out n proud and loving it, Sepp.

C'mon dude, you know you wanna...

It's become an agnotology study centre.
"Much of my own work focuses on how industry exploits scientific credentials to bolster false claims that undermine breastfeeding to increase sales of formula milk and, ultimately, damage health. The strategies and patterns recur across industries: they have been documented in tobacco, fossil fuels, pharmaceuticals, food and more. This influence is so powerful that public-health researchers consider it a distinct area of study: ‘commercial determinants of health’."
