Any chance of a title change please?

Australian election on the 18th of May, you’ll see some batshit stuff not far behind the US and Farage in this one  :lol:

Happy to provide updates on Pauline self destructing and Morrison being a tit if anyone is interested?

Quite happy to see Pauline’s vote nosediving. I see Malcolm Roberts has made an appearance on qanda, with Boris Johnson’s racist former fluffer.

Interestingly Labor have refused to meet with Murdoch, his rags have gone full ‘Liberal’ but people are now seeing through it.

Pretty sure I've called for these fascist microwankers to be executed enough times that I'm on the ASIO watch list.

My favourite is the Qld seat with four fascists and the LNP amongst its seven candidates.

So, it's election day tomorrow, and even though only two people read this thread, I'm feeling melancholic because, well, because.

Apparently it's not going to be the landslide everyone predicted. I'm going for Labor to win government with the bare 76 seats, and the Senate to be another shitshow that will end up with the LNP and assorted fascist microwankers in the majority. Shorten will prove to be ineffective and s***, and the calls for him to be replaced by Plibersek or Albanese will start within a year.

Hooray for another three years of useless politicians being useless. Best we can hope for is that we don't follow the lead of Trump and Farage into the trending fuckwittery.

In other Australian news, former PM Bob Hawke died yesterday. I'm massively conflicted about his legacy as a Labor PM, but he's better known for his beer drinking feats anyway. He once held the world record for necking a yardglass of beer, and at the cricket, he would always skull a beer handed to him by a stranger. Here's Shane Warne commentating on one such episode:

No-one who wasn't drinking the kool-aid thought was going to be 2007 all over again though. 

Also worth noting that pre-voting is at record levels, many cast before the last minute opinion poll tightening.  The Senate is always a clusterfuck, but for what it's worth depending on how many they pick up, they can potentially rely on the more "normal" independents, Xenophon's former disciples are a bunch of weirdos but hold reasonable enough opinions on many things.

Whatever the result, I am a New Zealander (but also hold Australian citizenship currently living in Sydney) who voted for John Key and the centre right National Party for 3 straight elections back home - but here I am voting for a Labor Party led by a former union strongman in my first Australian election, which shows how f***ed the current situation is for the Liberals.

I read every post but don't really have anything to contribute. :lol: Still like keeping up with Australia though.

Well Australia is f***ed.

I'll be fine, I'm a dirty contractor in a high demand field with the back-up of moving back home to NZ, but many of these fools in Queensland who just re-elected Morrison won't be.

Liberals have many of the same issues as the Conservative Party over in the UK have - there is a moderate wing nominally in power, but the crazies on the back bench have enough sway so they try to placate them - not realising they will never be happy.

Like I said the other day, I am a somewhat right wing person, and in isolation I have no real issues with Scott Morrison as a PM and some of the cabinet, but the whacko, bible thumping conservatives driving the party scare me.

Australia is going to get what it deserves for actively contributing to climate change and not giving a f*** about it.

f***.Me.

Spoke to a few people, needed excuses to vote Labor, didn’t have them.

The next election will be interesting as the predicted recession should hit soon.

No issues with Morrison, yeah right, he’s just stated it was a miracle he was returned. A miracle.

He wants to keep people locked up like animals on Manus but I’m sure that pandy has no issue will comfort them

Can't believe Australians looked at the last six years of Tory tight-fistedness and though "Yeah, more of the same please, with a side order of evangelism thanks."

Neesy's right - we f***ing deserve everything.

:thup: It’s certainly a positive - although it seems the equally racist but considerably stupider Malcolm Roberts has been returned :anguish:

f***ing unbelievable wasn’t it?

Concerns were first raised on Saturday afternoon when picking my daughter up from her hairdresser.

Got chatting about the election and she announced she was voting liberal because ‘there’s nothing really wrong with the country so why change?’

She’s Scottish so I asked her would she have voted Tory if she was there, response was ‘not a chance in hell’.

That’s exactly the sort of person Labor failed to reach and why they lost.

And if she ever has to hire an apprentice, she'll wonder why the TAFE system is so completely f***ed et al.

They're just so ignorant. I'm working in a boys school writing essays on asylum seekers, and so many parrot their redneck parents. It's just mindblowing how weirdly some people view the world.

Which state are you in again mate?

I thought WA was redneck but f*** me Queensland is backwards, absolute basket case.

Never seen so many racists in one place.
