Federal Politics


#1702

Dutton is a moron. Do these people realise that if they lurch further to the extreme right they will alienate even more voters.


#1703

Peter Dutton would make for the perfect Prime Minister…if the Liberal Party want to ensure that they’re in opposition for 10 years after the next Federal Election.


#1704

peter dutton as pm will be a huge victory for labor:) means labor will be a swing in the election


#1705

Hehe would be a great victory for labor indeed.

Peter Dutton ewwww who the fuck in their right mind would want Dutton in as leader of liberal party :joy:

If this is true it would be a stupid call, again they have done stupid things in the last five years…:joy:mm


#1706

How funny would it be in the next election if he doesn’t even win his seat? Only a few percent separated the two parties in the last election.


#1707

It happened to John Howard and he was actually popular once.


#1708

Could happen. Get up have mobilized to try and outst him. He’s a vile human. Lacks compassion. Has his head stuck up his own ass.


#1709

I thought it was stuck up barnabys butt…


#1710

More on the establishment of this “Monash Forum”. What a surprise Andrews is the brains behind it and Credlin is stirring the pot.


#1711

Old mate Jaff-daddy has an issue with the truth on a regular basis.

One of The Spy Report’s greatest contributors.


#1712

Interesting. Probably should post that in the Reddit thread which has spawned around the tweet.


#1713

I wouldn’t be surprised if there was something in this rumour of a Lib spill. They’ve rolled out John Howard tonight to urge against any move on Turnbull. Coincidence? I think not. It smacks of desperation.


#1714

The bulk of the Howard interview was surrounding the 20th anniversary of the waterfront dispute.

Just realised that federal parliament doesn’t sit until May 8th. So a party room meeting on Monday is BS.


#1715

it probally is BS going by history.

in 2015 the first challenge to abbot was on monday the 9th of feb - first day of the autumn session.

the sucessful challenge was on the 14th of september, another sitting day,

surely if there was 60 lib members travellig to canberra we would know - families, airlines, staffers - someone would say somehting rather than just an anonomous tip


#1716

Yeah I also doubt they’d do it while the Commonwealth Games are on would they? The world’s media here would have a field day.


#1717

The AEC today released the draft redistribution of electoral boundaries in Victoria and the ACT.

Both will gain an extra seat, and several in Victoria will be renamed: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-04-06/federal-electoral-boundaries-redrawn-victoria-act/9626486

South Australia will lose a seat, to be announced next week.


#1718

He doesn’t like a particular story being raised.


#1719

The ACT used to have an electorate called Fraser but it was named after Jim Fraser, who was the Member for ACT from 1951 to 1970. It was renamed Fenner in 2016 to honour scientist Frank Fenner.


#1720

When Abdel-Magied tweeted a similar line to Rugg’s last year she deleted the tweet and apologized stating: “It was brought to my attention that my last post was disrespectful, and for that, I apologise unreservedly”. Obviously that apology meant nothing.


#1721

Probably did at the time, but given how she gets treated by the noisy right, probably doesn’t GAF any more. I wasn’t offended by it but can see how some people would be.
