It's scary to think what could have been if Shorten and Labor were in, what we saw in Victoria could have happened Australia wide.

So all you freedom party types, by all means vote the majors last but at least put LNP, before Labor and the Greens, because nobody really knows what's around the corner if a new strain kicks in and it all goes to shit again, be honest with yourself and ask the question who is going to restrict my right's more LNP or Labor???

Yeah probably a lot better.
Beaconsfield mine collapse, Shorten was there every day and eventually helped get miners out alive. Worked his arse off.
Fire disaster, and scummo off to Hawaii for holiday as he doesn't hold a hose.
Think that alone is enough to reflect both individual's character..
Worst PM in our history, and after Abbott that is quite an achievement!!

Shorten helped get miners out alive…what a completely stupid comment. You always come across as sensible until now.

My point is he was on the ground organising and assisting where he could. So yes he did play a part getting them out alive. He did what would be expected in his role and yes he did work his arse off, and the miners did get out alive.
So I reckon you are the one making a stupid comment.
With fires the PM went on holidays to Hawaii. Of course no one would expect him to literally hold a hose, but being on the ground and supporting the emergency workers and victims would be the least a PM would do, not piss off on holidays which he tried to keep secret, then try to justify it by saying he promised his kids ..
Stand by my comment in regards to the character of both individuals.

None of these politicians have good character…none are role models irrespective of their party. All turn up where they are not wanted…for photo ops..Shorten included.

What you say about Shorten at the previous mine rescue is an insult to the people who with their skill and bravery risked their lives to save others. Shorten being there made zero impact on the outcome.

Off course you will, because that suits your bias. However, what people think of Shorten as a person is irrelevant to you saying, he contributed to getting them out alive.

He contributed zero to the actual rescue. The successful outcome would have been the same if he wasn’t there.

or at least, before they became significant...

I know he was super slow and reluctant to come back, but it's not like he left in the middle of a major disaster

Ooohhh….Supa, that’s got to go up in full. Too good to not post.
Life inside a lie

Here tis:

“The government Scott Morrison leads has achieved less in three terms than perhaps any other in Australian history. What it has accomplished has largely made the country worse. It has dismantled an effective carbon price, antagonised China, cowed the national broadcaster, diminished the broadband network. It has confected a national circus on gay rights, alienated allies, rigged the tax system to ensure a country that will be less fair, where there will be less money for health and education.

Morrison’s is a government of gross rorting and frivolous obsessions. It has no coherent plan. Its refusal to establish an integrity commission is an admission of just how bent its members are. It indulges peccadilloes on religious freedoms but refuses to legislate an emissions target. It muddled through the pandemic on luck and the work of the states.

Competence is a novel concept to Morrison. He does not possess it and nor does he expect it from his ministers. Billions of dollars are wasted on defence contracts. Billions more are rorted in election spending. It is government by boondoggle.

On refugees, he has refined a system of cruelty unmatched anywhere in the world. He will be remembered, if he is remembered at all, as the country’s great torturer. He is a man who will not pass up even the smallest advantage. He is constantly chiselling at the nation’s soul.

He has lied so often and with such certainty that the truth seems to slide off him. He is an oiled-up showman. In the early days of the government, when he was Immigration minister, he lied and said Reza Barati was killed outside the fence of a detention centre on Manus Island. The implication was that it was his fault for escaping. In reality, he was killed by guards. Morrison lied again and said social workers were coaching refugees to self-harm, and eventually his government had to pay compensation for this. It stands out as a lonely consequence in a career absent of them.

Morrison, this cruel and bilious man, now asks for a fourth term. He says he’s just getting started. He plans to be different. He looks out at the carnage behind him, all of it the result of his ineffectiveness and ineptitude, and says he is a bulldozer. There is no crisis that doesn’t begin and end with him imagining himself as a small boy playing with a toy truck.

His pitch, as ever, is comfort. He has the shape and bearing of a Jason recliner. He speaks to one half of Australia and promises he will make them comfortable. They will not have to worry about climate change or an unstable world. They will live in Morrison’s Australia, protected by selfishness and indifference. They can live inside one of his lies, in a house they bought with their superannuation, safe in the constant present that is more accurately a suburban past. The future doesn’t exist in this world because it is too real to consider.

Today, there is a chance Morrison will be re-elected. If it happens, it will be a tragedy for the country.“

Not true. The ALP are woke fuckstiks who will still destroy Australia with their commitment to neoliberalism and the Big Australia Ponzi it entails, but the LNP are pure evil filth.

The Morrison gentrification of corruption is as bad as anything which has ever been visited upon Australia. They simply can not get another chance to have their way with us.

I will be seriously disappointed with an ALP government in power but it’s still preferable to the LNP.

Scummo is basically the Penguin running Gotham City. Unfortunately….Albo ain’t no Batman. That’s for sure.

Albo is definitely not the best public speaker and didn’t handle the early press onslaught very well at the start but he improved over the length of the campaign. Lets see how he goes with the changes he wants to implement in aged care and childcare before we right him off . Lets see how he does with housing and improving Medicare. Lets see how the labor government goes at improving relationships with our neighbours near and far . There is a wealth of opportunity in the next decade and the current mob hasn’t done anything in the last decade to deserve another shot . I believe Albo will do better behind the scenes then he does in front of the camera, his constant err , umm , errs drive me crazy but he’s got far more going for him than scomo who is a pathological liar. If a strong ICAC is established and maintained then surely politicians in this country will improve and possibly attract more capable people. It’s been a shit show for decades now and can’t continue the way it’s been going. Plenty of people writing labor off before they have been given a chance . Do you really want more of the same from this current crowd ? Yeah I understand the ones that are doing well don’t mind but they need to open their ears and eyes and understand not everyone is doing so well. Time for change.

It has confected a national circus on gay rights, alienated allies, rigged the tax system to ensure a country that will be less fair, where there will be less money for health and education.

Morrison’s is a government of gross rorting and frivolous obsessions. It has no coherent plan. Its refusal to establish an integrity commission is an admission of just how bent its members are. It indulges peccadilloes on religious freedoms but refuses to legislate an emissions target. It muddled through the pandemic on luck and the work of the states.

Competence is a novel concept to Morrison. He does not possess it and nor does he expect it from his ministers. Billions of dollars are wasted on defence contracts. Billions more are rorted in election spending. It is government by boondoggle.

On refugees, he has refined a system of cruelty unmatched anywhere in the world. He will be remembered, if he is remembered at all, as the country’s great torturer. He is a man who will not pass up even the smallest advantage. He is constantly chiselling at the nation’s soul.

He has lied so often and with such certainty that the truth seems to slide off him. He is an oiled-up showman. In the early days of the government, when he was Immigration minister, he lied and said Reza Barati was killed outside the fence of a detention centre on Manus Island. The implication was that it was his fault for escaping. In reality, he was killed by guards. Morrison lied again and said social workers were coaching refugees to self-harm, and eventually his government had to pay compensation for this. It stands out as a lonely consequence in a career absent of them.

Morrison, this cruel and bilious man, now asks for a fourth term. He says he’s just getting started. He plans to be different. He looks out at the carnage behind him, all of it the result of his ineffectiveness and ineptitude, and says he is a bulldozer. There is no crisis that doesn’t begin and end with him imagining himself as a small boy playing with a toy truck.

His pitch, as ever, is comfort. He has the shape and bearing of a Jason recliner. He speaks to one half of Australia and promises he will make them comfortable. They will not have to worry about climate change or an unstable world. They will live in Morrison’s Australia, protected by selfishness and indifference. They can live inside one of his lies, in a house they bought with their superannuation, safe in the constant present that is more accurately a suburban past. The future doesn’t exist in this world because it is too real to consider.

Today, there is a chance Morrison will be re-elected. If it happens, it will be a tragedy for the country.“

Yep, reckon that editorial nails it!

100% agree

"Albo is definitely not the best public speaker"

Is an understatement the guy is the worst public speaker in the history of Australian politics, a complete train wreck.

Even before the campaign started he was avoiding press questions.

Then he didn't know (not forget) two extremely important aspect related to the economy, the unemployment rate and cash rate.

Then he didn't know his own policy??...WTF??

Then a few days ago he claimed the borders were still closed?

And many more clueless comments.

Add to that he mumbles and stumbles and clearly can't handle media pressure, all signs point towards being weak and incompetent.

It's seriously scary that he might be PM soon, he really is like our own Biden.

It's a Saturday paper article for gods sake only Crikey is worse, it's complete BS.

No PM in my life time has had to deal with what Scomo has a once in 100 year pandemic, then fires and floods.

Most PM's just have to keep the economy ticking along and tinker a few little things.

Sri Lankan Tamil reffos usually flee northern Ports for nearby India.
Scomo's Reffos were thwarted on the more recent fleeing port on Mid East Coast.
Oz journalist says stunt involved Police who were witnessed putting them on a procured Vessel.
https://whatsnew2day.com/election-2022-people-smugglers-intercepted-by-s...

If crew want a second reliable version...then that would have to be this Breaking NEWS.
2,000km Journey S/W to Chagos Islands...(Why Here?)
Because they're baiting UK to claim the Island with them as their Reffos
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2022/may/20/tamil-refugees-detained-by...

So why would they risk 5,000kms to Oz when they can bribe closer UK Island into taking them.
Reffos have done their Homework & UK is feeling the Heat...nothing to do with PM Dutto!

PS:
Don't discount that UK are exploiting or sponsoring Tamil Reffos to assist in claiming the disputed Islands.
Now that sounds more believable than all other versions...All say Aye!

It was not from The Most Revered Macrobusiness Site if that’s what you’re getting at. The praise would’ve been heaped to the heavens if that were the case. Kinda get the feeling you are aware of that fact.
