The vote where you write down mickey mouse (or whoever) and tick that box. Not that I do it

That's an informal vote and no candidate gets it.
A donkey vote is where a person just puts 1 at the top, 2 in second slot, 3 in the third position etc.As long as they number each box, It's a formal vote and still counts. 1-2% of the population vote like this and it can be the difference between winning and losing in a tight race. Major party candidates are stoked when they are higher on the ballot than their main rival.

2. get your name ticked off and vote informal. eg fuck up numbering or deface the ballot paper. A cock and balls is standard, but if you want to get creative, do an ejaculation as well. Maybe even "vote 1 blowin coz a hate the rest of you cuntz and I'm always right"

In the senate, don't be lazy and number every candidate and you'll end up getting the person you hate the least.

Simples.

A variant: you could do the 'Dangel' which is cock and balls as previously mentioned, with angel wings and a halo above the head. That one was on the school archaeological record.

the 'walking away elephant' is also good; seriously tempting for the lower house vote... just so disappointed in all of them...

Meanwhile in Canberra, the wheels on the bus go round and round.....until the engine stalls. The worst government in living memory creates new levels of parliamentary incompetence!

" Pauline Hanson had promised to cause “so much mayhem” for the government this sitting period, and today she delivered with not one, not two, but five Coalition senators crossing the floor to support her anti-vaccine mandate bill. The COVID-19 Vaccination Status Bill 2021 – which would ban governments and businesses from “discriminating” on the basis of vaccination status ………

Government leaders saw the chaos coming and hoped to get it out of the way quickly, with several spending their morning talking to the media about the “broad church” that is the Liberal Party and the “time honoured tradition” that is Coalition MPs crossing the floor. Senate leader Simon Birmingham, however, urged rogue MPs not to withhold their votes on other matters, and to consider individual legislation on its merit. Liberal senator Gerard Rennick, who has been using a taxpayer-funded website to claim a government “cover up” of vaccine side effects, has since confirmed that he still wants his vaccine indemnity scheme, and will, in fact, be withholding his vote over it. The government, Birmingham claimed, won’t be held to ransom over vaccine gripes. Good thing it didn’t leave several complex, contentious bills until the final sitting period of the year, then.
Unsurprisingly, Hanson’s anti-mandate bill failed miserably, at 44 to 5, with all five votes coming from the Coalition (Rennick and McMahon were joined by Alex Antic, Concetta Fierravanti-Wells and Matt Canavan, with others hinting at their support; One Nation senators were unable to vote because they were attending remotely, and Hanson’s request that leave be granted to record their support was denied)"

How low can you go? Oh about as low as One Nation.

" Jacqui Lambie, the Coalition and Labor have banded together to demand an apology from One Nation for sharing the independent Tasmanian senator’s personal mobile number on social media, leading to a torrent of abuse.

Fears for politicians’ personal safety have grown in recent months because of the murder of a conservative British MP in October and feverish debate over vaccine policy that has included protesters displaying mock gallows outside Victorian parliament."

Oh gawd….Blindboy’s gone full “The greatest threat to humanity is right wing terrorism” because of the MSM fright campaign du jour , despite the only political violence of the last thirty years* being when someone threw an egg at Frazer Manning.

Sort your shit out old man. The gallows ! The gallows! Lololol. It’s a technique used to delegitimise a valid political movement in a functioning democratic society you dumb chunt.

You referred to an act of political violence which happened in a foreign country 8000kms, the other side of the globe and ten different time zones from parliament to raise the spectre of threat in Australia you daft fucker.

Get real dickhead. Just because your daily tabloid says something is so doesn’t mean it’s true. Unless Ulladulla is a hot bed of murderous violent political activists that only you are aware of…….lololol

I reckon Lambie has a lot of good things to say on occasion and I think Hanson has some good things to say ( but she’s mostly a career facsimile of the principles she purports to aspire to).

Both to have the ability to veer towards the recklessly stupid.

Everything on its merit at the time.tribalism is for the retarded.

I like the fact both Lambie and Hanson weren't born with a silver spoon in their mouths, both are battlers and not scared to say what they think.

But more often than not i find myself disappointed with Lambie's take on things, that not to say i agree with Hanson on everything either (Covid & vaccines for instance)

BTW. Has it been confirmed One Nation leaked her number?...Media I've read says it's an allegation.

Sexual insults reflect the inadequacies of those making them and represent a profound immaturity, a stalling at that snigger snigger, snigger pre-pubscent stage which most pass through in early high school. In terms of forums like these it indicates a total absence of the ability to make any meaningful contribution to a discussion. More sad and pathetic than offensive but deeply revealing.

As opposed to the obnoxious, self-righteous violence inciting bunch you admire.

"Anti-vaxxer threats against elected politicians continue to escalate, with federal senator Jacqui Lambie hit with a torrent of abuse and WA Premier Mark McGowan considering whether to move house........McGowan meanwhile is considering moving his family out of their home after threats were allegedly made to behead him as well as his wife and children"

"I don't admire anyone"

So after years of attacking anything to the left of Putin and Trump, you disown them? What about Hanson, sounds like you are a bit keen on her.

"when that chick says she 'can't wait to see dan andrews on the end of a rope'... any normal person knows she's talking about the end of his term and not much else..."

I mean any normal person knows she is using inflammatory language likely to lead to exactly what we are seeing from the right every day now: threats of violence to politicians.

sypkan's picture
sypkan's picture
sypkan Wednesday, 24 Nov 2021 at 12:07pm

as I've said, many times...

having the revelation that the left has overtaken the right in the bullshit stakes doesn't automatically endear one to the right

it motivates one to call out bullshit, and most importantly... hypocrisy...

which you are doing now... ignoring all the toxic shit you've sprouted on here, whilst falsely claming some form of moral highground over the nature of political discourse

"I mean any normal person knows she is using inflammatory language likely to lead to exactly what we are seeing from the right every day now: threats of violence to politicians."

you really don't see you do the same?

maybe not in your current (only) months long incarnation... where you've tried to go for a distant non personal disposition, whilst blandly asking for links and 'evidence' for every minor unconvenient point... tried...

but before...

Sypkan, blowin, ID etc don't buy into the mainstream conservative world view. What they do buy into is a cynical view of politics with a hatred for Labor that is stronger than a hatred for the LNP. That's enough to get their votes, either primary or via preferences.
The LNP win government because these mouth breathers hate all politicians but they've been taught to believe the LNP is the less shit option.

And then there's Clive!

@VL

Funny you put Blowin, Sypkan & me in the same box, although i agree with a lot of their views, our views are still very different.

To me Blowin & Sypkan are left leaning, they hold the values of the old school left, which is now pretty much the centre, that's why they call others the fake left.

While I'm proudly conservative, my views are to the right of Blowin and Sypkan.

I make sure my preferences go to LNP but i don't think Blowin and Sypkan feel the same. i think they would still rather their vote's go to Labor ahead of LNP, but the way i read it they feel very frustrated in knowing they have to make that choice and frustrated with the direction of the left both socially and economically.

But that's just my take on things from reading years of their post here.
