Was about to start a weekly poll on here called "The dumbest, simplistic thing said this week by the mouth breather prime minister" but there's just too many nominations, folks.

Fuck this tepid labor shower of shites. When even the liberal party can find room for a real live communist it’s time to stop vacillating on the progressive issues of the day. Some of the damper parts of Queensland are on fire and you’re still worried about pissing of the knuckle staggers in the bush.

The policy of capitulation-but-worse doesn't even make electoral sense. You're going to spend three years standing up for homophobia and police states and fracking and complaining that the concentration camps aren't harsh enough, in order to... win over 3.2% of LNP voters? While somehow assuming that you're not going to lose a massive chunk of your regular voters?

Abbott got in by relentlessly spending eight hours a day, six days a week sledging a government that was actually doing pretty well and passing lots of decent legislation. Perhaps you might motivate people by deciding to be in opposition, and talking about how the govt are doing horrible things that will destroy individuals' lives and the ecosystem? Just an idea!

Appeal to farmers by talking every fucking day about how climate change is going to fuck them sooner and worse than everyone else.

What the fuck is the ALP for. They'd rather vote against anything worthwhile on the basis that the Green support it than actually stand for anything.

I feel like our governments are just running the clock down, concentrating on making as much money as possible while waiting for the shit to hit the fan.

Thing is, Labor bet (not entirely irrationally) on votes lost to the left trickling back to them via preferences in most federal lower house seats. (Melbourne being the most reliable exception recently.) Greens first-preference votes, for example, end up in the Labor pile after distribution some 90% of the time. (That was Antony Green's estimate recently.) Labor may ridicule Green (et al) voters but they know they're unlikely to preference LNP over Labor any time soon no matter how underwhelming they are.

It's luvly that we can at least now let our senate preference exhaust without any risk of inadvertently helping install either Labor or LNP in the lower house. (After electoral changes vigorously opposed by Labor, naturally.)

Er, "install either Labor or LNP in the UPPER house" rather.

I mean, you see stuff like this, https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/sep/10/australians-increasingly-fear-climate-change-related-drought-and-extinctions

and you think, well, they're not THAT concerned because they keep voting in the same coal shills and even then the ALP are a bunch of pissweak cunts when it comes to taking a stand on the environment

They fear its effect on coastal property values while declining to take any action that would impede them from driving around in large plastic living rooms and renovating their houses with acres of giant cream tiles and cement render.

Oh, well, a whole bunch of those National-voting fuckwits are about to run out of water. I guess it's possible they MIGHT realise voting against protecting the land you rely on because the bigot arguing to destroy it is wearing an akubra is not a long-term plan for success.

There might be a fatal flaw in this hang the environmental impact studies and let’s build more dams strategy - if it doesn’t fucking rain.

Also stop growing cotton.

I'm pretty sure farmers more than anyone are well aware of climate change and its looming problems, theyre not stupid. But yes, why the fuck we grow cotton or rice in this country I dont know.

The current lab hand-wringing and vacillating makes me worry that their policy might be to wear a different coloured akubra hat.

tried to gently explain to a lower-ranking colleague at work today that no, there has been no law passed in Australia to allow abortion to occur at time of birth (despite her protests that it is on Facebook and 'it's on Channel 9' - linked to some weirdo site on there with a screenshot of Nine News)
