Andy-mac, those minor parties would only be UAP and One Nation. The Greens have been squeaky clean for 20 + years, and the micro parties aren't in a position to call too many shots.
TBH Andy-mac, it's the conservative side of politics in Aus, UK, and the USA that have taken corruption to the next level. The ALP branch stacking is very low level crap compared to the shit Taylor, Robert, Fletcher, and Porter get up to.

No argument there from me....
Greens only party pushing hard for ICAC really. I reckon there would be a number of liberal politicians very concerned if proper ICAC or royal commission established. Porter, brother Stuey, Taylor, Cash, Joyce, Canavan, and the list goes on. Would be easier to work out who is not corrupt...ಠ_ಠ

There's a reason why the Vic LNP haven't been in power since. They are incompetent, corrupt, and a just fucking useless.

So i guess you also then understand why Labor nationally have only been in power for 23 of the last 70 years, and less than 6 years of almost the last 26 years, and havent been in power for the past 8 years and even if they get elected next election it will only be on the basis they have watered down their policies to become Labor lite and people generally get to a stage after a long period like 8 years where the grass tends to look greener.

Cockee,
Yes there is corruption in the trade union movement (mostly in the CFMEEU) but when that happens the victim is the membership. Yes it's shit, but rorting taxpayer's money is a much bigger crime. The LNP are fucking miles ahead of the ALP on this front. $80 mil to Angus Taylor's mate for no water. $30 mil to a LNP donor for a block of land worth $3mil. Massive ongoing contracts to Palladin with zero oversight. Parakeela. Covid Safe app done by a LNP mate. Sports rorts, Regional rorts, carpark rorts, job keeper, $600 mil for a gas fired power station etc etc etc. It's a fucking joke, and all that money should have been spent on hospitals, schools, transport, NBN etc etc etc. Kind of makes union shitfuckery pale into insignificance.

Three months ago Vic Local was trying to convince you that the members of the CMFEU were right wing neo Nazis , violent thugs and anti social wasters when they protested ( rightfully) against the utterly pointless and blatantly authoritarian vaccine mandate.

VIC Local is about as Left wing as Margaret Thatcher. He loves Dan Andrews because Dan Andrews , with his neoliberal Mass immigration Ponzi, his relentless privatisation of everything he can get hold of, his endless corporate subsidies and his dedication to serving his developer and business masters, is about as Left wing as Margaret Thatcher himself.

Opinion
Geoff Kitney
It’s time for Scott Morrison to govern, except he never will

Politics for Morrison’s Coalition is about scheming to stay in power, while Australia starts regressing into its old insular ways.
Geoff Kitney
Columnist
Dec 28, 2021 – 11.30am

It’s time! Well, OK, not very original and not really capturing the national mood the way this memorable slogan did in 1972 when Labor offered its most commanding leader, Gough Whitlam, as the alternative prime minister to feeble Bill McMahon.
Anthony Albanese is no Gough Whitlam. Which might be Scott Morrison’s best hope of another election miracle because Morrison actually is beginning to challenge McMahon as one of the country’s least-convincing prime ministers.The Coalition desperately needs to go into this election with voters convinced that Albanese and his program are too risky.
That said, the argument that it is time for a change of government is hardly less compelling than it was in 1972.
The truth is, the Morrison government has become a government in name only, led by a leader who has little to offer as he seeks to take the Coalition to a fourth successive term in office. The Morrison government is occupying, not governing.
After seven years of Coalition government, Australia is standing still.
In fact, it is regressing.
Modernisation on the back burner
Just as in the long years of Menzies governments, vital work to modernise Australia is on the back burner. Just as the Menzies governments – held to ransom by the then-Country Party – protected old industries and insulated the economy from global forces of change, so is history being repeated as the National Party holds the nation to ransom to protect the coal industry.
Australia is back to its bad old, inward-looking, she’ll-be-right, habits of the past.
The bitter partisan divide in Australia is deep and widening. Optimism has given way to frustration and fear. A leader to bring the country together again and to take the decisions needed to prepare the country for global challenges ahead is an urgent national need.
Morrison can’t.
Morrison’s foolish tribalism
In fact, all the evidence suggests he doesn’t want to. The partisan games he has played throughout the COVID-19 pandemic prove it. Morrison’s foolish tribalism has undermined the authority of the prime ministership and emboldened state leaders to act in ways that threaten the future of the federation.
Is Albanese the person capable of bringing the nation together again? In the way that a Labor leader did last time the country was coming apart at the seams – Bob Hawke in 1983?
From observing him for a long time I think he is a decent person with good instincts. But it is a big leap from there to being the Prime Minister needs now. But a decent person would be a good start. I don’t get Scott Morrison.
There is something not quite right with him. There is a falseness about him, a lack of empathy, a coldness that I find very odd, set against his professed deep Christianity. I do not know how he reconciles his hard politics with his professed belief in the teachings of Jesus.
Pentecostal Christians’ influence
People argue that Morrison’s faith is his own business and that critics hate the fact that he is a conservative family man with faith.
But his faith is part of a bigger political story: The steadily growing influence of Pentecostal Christians within the Liberal Party as a result of years of grassroots infiltration by activists.
Morrison has stacked his cabinet with a large number of people who share his brand of religious expression. The blurring of the vital line between church and state. Pentecostalism is an American import, based on a strange mix of faith in two Gods – the Christian God and the God of Free Markets. These beliefs are intertwined into what has been termed “prosperity gospel”.
Trust us with your money might seem to be an odd appeal from the Morrison government.
Capitalism and Christ! How does that work?
This might suit fundamentalist America but, I would have thought, would repel traditional hard-bitten, no-bullshit Australian scepticism.
But I might be wrong. Maybe the decades of brain-washing of too much US culture via commercial TV and Murdoch media has changed us.
Morrison certainly believes the capitalism message is a winner. As he does so often, Morrison reduces the complexities of running a nation to a simple, catchy slogan: “Can do capitalism”, not “don’t do governments” “I think that’s a good motto for us to follow,” he says.
As with most such slogans, this bears little resemblance to the truth.
The Coalition has governed Australia for nearly 20 of the last 26 years. The size of government is greater than it has ever been – and the latest budget outlook shows it continuing to grow, even with debt at eye-watering levels.
The Coalition is addicted to splashing cash. Yet the Coalition will run, as its big economic theme for the coming election, that you cannot trust Labor with your (taxpayers’) money. “We created the problem. Now trust us to fix it”, they are saying. Trust! Such an important word in the current political context.
Trust has a chequered history in federal politics.
Outright lies from Howard government
John Howard ran with “trust us” in the 2004 election, after the outright lies his government perpetrated in its zealous effort to thwart asylum seekers reaching Australia. Voters went along with it because they saw then-Labor leader Mark Latham as too risky.
Trust us with your money might seem to be an odd appeal from the Morrison government, given its record of the most blatant “pork-barrelling” we have seen.
Again, risk-averse Australian voters may be persuaded that, despite its trickery, the Morrison government is less likely to make a mess of things than Albanese Labor. But to me, this coming election is about more than “trust” against “risk”.
This election should be about casual corruption and the collapse of accountability. It should be about the rapid decline in standards of public probity and the Morrison government’s contempt for accountability: the obscene imbalance in the allocation of public grant funds to suit its own political purposes; the casual way lies are told, in the expectation of no adverse consequences; the way ministerial standards have collapsed; the way almost every difficult issue is treated as a political problem to “manage” rather than to be solved. For there to be no consequences for a prime minister and a government behaving so badly is to say that these standards are OK.
To accept declining standards of accountability is to treat our democracy with contempt.
To me, integrity issues top the list of reasons why this government does not deserve to be re-elected.
To me, this is the main reason It’s Time.
Laura Tingle is on leave.

The worst type of conservatives are the social conservatives (read bigots) who think Australia can go it alone economically. Think Hanson, Trump and Boris. It's a weird mix of socialist alliance economic policies without any fairness, and a shit load of racism thrown into the mix. A complete fucking disaster.
People who cheer this shit on are just small men with small minds. They don't do solutions, they just do the "woe is me" victimhood bullshit. Just a pack of fucking losers wanting someone else to blame.

again...

because you are a right wing neoliberal stooge...

as it is you that defends dan andrews and his right wing wayward meanderings into the privatisation of government roles, and the wider tendencies of labor to do so...

and it is you that defends the double speak of woke corporations, and the nasty nefarious nature of big pharma.... and it is you that is vehemently defending and conserving the status quo of the exploitative neoliberal order across the world...

you are a forever conserving right wing conservative neoliberal, layered with fake left double speak and a distinct lack of appreciation for integrity

and on top of that, you seem to have little appreciation for the union movement, and even indulge in subtle union bashing and the blatant belittling and mislabelling of it's members

you, are a fake left, right wing neoliberal conservative corporate dog supporting hoax of a man, who is so judgmental and intolerant it's embarassing, constantly displaying an unhealthy disdain for working class people... you have almost no redeeming 'left wing' qualities at all, ...beyond your one trick pony fake left cultism...

play with labels all you like... that's the truth of it...

What the fuck?

What do you mean “What the fuck?” ?

You honestly don’t realise that Dan Andrews is as much a right wing neoliberal as anyone within the LNP?

Dan is a neoliberal Big Australia booster who privatises everything he can and subsidises his developer and business mates to the tune of billions of dollars. Dan makes it clear at every turn that he prioritises corporate interests over electorate interests with everything he does.

Here’s a big heads up - when you import millions of immigrants and temporary workers into your state, against the wishes of the electorate, you are supplying an incredibly large material subsidy to your corporate mates. Dan’s corpo donors need bodies to fill their sky kennel developments , their outer suburb shithole sprawl, their toll paying transport infrastructure and their ticket-clipping edumigration scams. Dan’s business buddies demand millions of fresh exploitable coolie labour to suppress wages and grow profit share each year.

And Dan is the man to answer their prayers.

When you ignore what he says and watch what he does you’ll soon realise that there’s so little difference between himself and his LNP counterparts that for all intents and purposes they are the same party. Dan Andrews and Dom Perrottet are Coke and Pepsi.

That’s why VIC Local loves him so much. Dan mumbles the right platitudes and has the right pronouns but that’s as far left as he goes, the rest is pure right wing….just like Vic Local. VIC Local is as right wing ( fake left division) as you’ll find : He loves a government handout for his business cause he thinks he’s entitled as a “lifter “ , but when it comes to demanding that the “leaners ” are denied government assistance , such as when he’s demanding that the tiny minority of unvaccinated people should be denied medical assistance and access to society, then no one is louder!

Being glib and thinking it’s clever will not solve the problem of there being no alternative to the right wing neoliberalism of the LNP/ ALP duopoly. Until the electorate is aware that there is no genuine alternative within the LNP/ ALP then we are destined to be stuck in this political quagmire.

Luckily, more and more people are realising the truth.

BTW- VIC Local : Of course you’re a conservative bloke. Own it. Your spluttering of “ I’m not a conservative “ is the lie you tell yourself whilst your actions show the truth of your inherent conservatism. When you vote for Dan Andrews you are voting for a right wing neoliberal with a peeling coat of fake left paint. The ultimate irony is that your biggest claim towards not being right wing is your dedication to voting for Dan Andrews ……who is utterly right wing.

Then again….no one said you were smart bloke.

If this were not true you would be demonstrating the material difference between Dan Andrews and Dom Perrottet but you’re not, you’re trying to distract with your wet lettuce insults.

I’m sure you can find a two degree difference between them but they are both heading down Big Australia Corporate Street at a great clip and to try to deny it is folly.

That was years ago and it was a protest vote. I’ve walked the walk the whole time. I didn’t endorse ON I just wanted to send a message to the neoliberal duopoly that my days voting for them were over. You know that but your commitment to obstinate stupidity renders you unable to acknowledge it.

No mate, you are misreading it completely.

The Real left ( The ALP of the Whitlam era ) :
/ Side with workers over capital

/Consider the government a functionary of society, not merely a conduit for business and whose scope is to outsource every available public service to industry for profit.

/ Prioritise people and the environment over the growth model of economics

/ Reject the political ideology of neoliberalism outright.

The ALP does none of the above. They are not left wing in any way beyond the thinnest of veneers relating to a style of progressive socialism representing only the tiniest portion of the population and which is almost universally supported by both sides of politics regardless. Example is same sex marriage , it was never the left/ right divide the media portrayed it but was useful as a branding exercise for establishing the illusion of difference between the right wing LNP and the Fake Left right wing ALP.

If you think that Dan Andrews is left wing then please provide evidence of material difference in policy and outcome to the proudly right wing Dom Perrottet.

Dan Andrews is privatising the roads FFS. The same traffic infrastructure upgrades which are only required because Dan pumps the state full of millions of immigrants at the behest of his business donors. The taxpayers , who don’t want the population growth, subsidise business by accomodating the extra pressure on public services, paying for the construction of the required infrastructure and then paying increased fees and tolls on all of the above. The Victorian people subsidise Dan’s business mates with the destruction of their environment, their water security and the existence of the species diversity they cohabit alongside. He plans to subsidise business to the tune of $100B in the coming decades …..before the 150% blowouts of course!

This is Dan Andrew’s modus operandi. He is not a left wing politician and the ALP is not a left wing party. They are right wing operating under a fraudulent left wing brand/ identity. They are Fake Left.

The tragic thing for these people is those preference flows may lead to the resumption of the mass immigration/mass education/buy our houses! ponzi at full throttle, that they really don't want at all.
