Australian Politics, Mark II


#6849

Managed to avoid most election ads so far. Except for the local candidate posters, all of who (and I might be wrong) are promising to build a pool. In a beachside town. With a very large aquatic centre about 20min drive away.

There’s like zero brown people here so I guess they needed to think outside the box a bit.

“Everyone I spoke to at my campaign office were outraged by it, so my understaning of statistical mathematics tells me that to be 100% of the local community are outraged as well.”


#6851

Apparently Labor are going to tax your utes though.


#6852

And they’re going to put electrical outlets in gum trees apparently, according to some silly old duck in Queensland. Lifelong Labor voter till 2016. Queensland is a weird place.

Another thing…allegedly a platform of Clive Palmer’s United Australia Party is that North Queensland should secede…maybe from Queensland, maybe from Australia.

He can’t even unite Queensland.

b b b but muh weekends

Don’t most vehicles manufacturers already have plans to be mostly or fully electric by 2030 anyway?


#6854

This is another one of those “if I didn’t know it was Palmer who said it I’d probably fully support it” things.


#6855

Palmer is advertising on High Street, Northcote. Obvious waste of money even before this happened :+1:


#6856

Pfft, facts…


#6857

Great work by the good burghers of Ruckers Hill, there!


#6858

But kangaroo and emu are very lean meats.


#6859

They might even be making…wait for it…electric utes!


#6860

Shhhh!


#6861

We might finally be rid of Leyonhjelm. Missed out on a NSW upper house seat. May try again for a federal senate seat, there’s still time to nominate, but his voter base is so low (and there’s so much competition for the hard right vote now) that it’ll be very very tough for him.

I’d say good riddance, but you just know he’ll have a regular column in the Australian and a sky news gig within a fortnight, and within two months he’ll be a regular commentator on the ABC in the name of ‘balance’.


#6862

Advance Australia release video of Captain Get Up rubbing his genitals and behind on a poster of Zali Stegall and Bill Shorten’s face. Jolly


#6863

Its good but also means two one nation seats in his place…


#6864

Is that like how family-friendly Sunrise provides balance by giving a platform to two One Nation members and one of the most right wing ex-Premiers Victoria has ever seen?


#6865

Wonder if Labor are courageous enough to introduce the true publishing laws like in Canada?


#6866

Hey that must be the money for the indoor pool we had been promised in my Town.


#6867

That would be fantastic, … and you never know, maybe.

Bill did tell him to stick his meeting up his arsse when he asked for one to offer his help, and therefore expect a favour back.

The same trap Kev 07 fell into.


#6868

Maybe he rooted her at uni.
