Australian Election

Post by noosard » April 11, 2022, 11:34 am

Anthony Albanese has told colleagues he “f***ked up” and it “won’t happen again”.

It was agonising, sloppy and by any definition a trainwreck press conference.

And now every galah in the pet shop, as Paul Keating once said, will be asking him ‘gotcha’ questions for the rest of the campaign.

The Labor leader made a swift exit after he was stumped by questions about the Reserve Bank’s cash rate and the unemployment rate.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison made a hasty exit from his first event of the election campaign as protesters in Hawaiian shirts tried to ambush him.

Clive Palmer has sensationally backflipped on claims he would preference the Greens at the upcoming election, insisting it was “fake news”.

The mining magnate just last week told the National Press Club he would be inclined to put the Greens ahead of Labor and the Coalition, citing the mountain of debt brought on by the government.

But just days later, Mr Palmer has lashed out at the media taking a “tongue in cheek remark” out of context.

“The comment has been taken wildly out of context and twisted by some media outlets,” Mr Palmer said in a statement.

“It is nothing more than fake news.

Hawaiian shirts? Running away from Songkran celebrants? What a wuss.

I remember that. And the disastrous photo op that followed where the volunteer firefighters he was visiting refused to speak with him or told him to bugger off? I thought it was all
pretty well orchestrated by a media that didn't like him or his administration much already.

There is no fun in targetting Scomo, it is just too easy. Some parallels with US 20/20 Presidential election.

The contender is not hugely popular, but the incumbant is so much on the nose that he loses rather than the contender winning. I have never witnessed party members attacking an incumbant Prime Minister this close to an election, Scomo has a target on his back. The gap in the polls is significant, but the polling in marginal seats even more so. My guess 5 weeks out, is a significant majority for Labor.

I'm afraid I'm not up to spec with this Australian Election malarky. Who should I watch out for? Who are the shady characters? Do you have anyone like BoJo?

Earnest, the executive of both major parties are chock full of powerbrokers, would be's, and typically disengenuious. They are opportunists like a school of sharks, eat their own young if they can, ....nom, nom, nom.

Having said that, lets not be too cynical. Good guys on both sides. I rate Albo as a good guy, very smart, the genuine artical, Morrison not a bit so much. I like the rise of the liberal moderates like NSW's Matt Kean.

Left wing and right wing crazies, boot the lot of them from both parties, take the best out of both of their individual books, then create a better country, free from excesses of louts like the CFMEU and the dangerous financial oligarcy.

I remain a moderate and an idealist if that make sense.

It does.

As Billy Connelly said, don't vote because you'll only encourage them.

I think under the Australian electoral system electors should vote. In NZ, we definitely should in our electoral system.

The Australian Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce has some similarities with Boris Johnson. He has had a colourful love life and he's a total boofhead. I crack up whenever he's the Acting Prime Minister. I assume he's going to get re-elected.

One of the best things about Australian politics is sometimes the Prime Minister fails to win to his own electorate and it's good night Charlie for him. Unfortunately I think Morrison is from Queensland :roll: so that's unlikely to happen to him.

Dutton is the Aussie politician I have the least time for. Another damn Queenslander.

Interesting. To me he kind of comes across as a bit of a Queenslander - a light weight. I wouldn't say that about Quensland rugby league players although I recently read 2 Broncos had a biffo over one of them standing on the other's new shoes. Silly fools.

Earnest let you friend know the 3 answers are
1 Watch out for UM trolls, the guardian, lefties and fence sitters.
2 Same as answer 1.
3 no one is like Boris.

We Australians don’t have to vote in the election.
But if you do want to cast a vote it must submit by postal means. Register and get the postal vote package now if you feel your vote will help.

Anthony Albanese has enraged reporters after cutting a press conference short and backflipping on a promise just three days into the campaign trail.

Albo accused of Hawke exaggeration

Anthony Albanese has been accused of exaggerating his economic credentials in the wake of Monday’s awkward cash rate gaffe.

In a press conference this week, Mr Albanese claimed he “became an economic policy adviser to the Hawke government” after completing his Sydney Univer­sity degree – but Mr Albanese actually served as a research officer under Tom Uren, the minister for territories and local government under the Hawke government.

If you really want to do your head in and contemplate suicide, watch and listen to the slimey greens, the guardian paper, sydney morning herald and the lefties favourite station the abc.
