Well, the libs finally got rid of Malcolm Turncoat. onlt to finf that nothing has changed.

Why has nothing changed"

Because the people supporting him are still there! Same old policies but a different leader and a cabinet who kept saying that Malcolm was wonderful.

I absolutely despise what Shorten and Co have planned for Aus but it looks inevitable.

Well, I'd be happy if the current govt simply was booted out via a successful no-confidence motion. Won't have to put up with ineptitude for another 5 months or so.

Sooner that the libs/nats are kicked out, the sooner that 6 years (2 terms) of Labour/Green nightmare can be started and subsequently gotten rid of.

The Aus stock market (and return for retirees to live on) has been a disaster under the libs. Absolutely no confidence in the current govt no matter how they try to dress it up about economic management. The USA buffoon hasn't helped with his clumsy attempts at world economics. All he's managed to do is start a trade war with China.

Just great isn't it.

I think it was Malcolm Fraser who advised people to keep their money under their bed with any labour govt. Time to start containing the damage that the libs have wreaked on the Aus stock market and people's lives in last 6 months.

Libs or Labour doesnt matter all a bunch of muppets looking after their own hip pockets.
Libs wont invest enougth in renewables so ppl can afford to keep their lights on while Labour want to spend everything and open the border gates.
Herd some talk from ppl wanting to tap into the NT water and north QLD to drought prof southern states and keep up the water to the millions of more people they want to populate the country, bl..dy crazys but i suppose it could ern the NT some dollars.

Any democracy is a balance of interests.

In Aus we have the interests of the trade unions influencing Labor and we have the interest of business influencing the libs.

The interests of the agricultural sector lie with the nats and the interests of the environmentalists lie with the greens.

Each pays lip service to the remaining unrepresented interests that make up our society. That lip service translates into deal making with 1 or more of the other 3 to further the interests of their particular sector.

Those remaining unrepresented interests are hoping that the 4 main players will "think kindly of them" in any deals they do.

At election time, unrepresented voters seem to support one of the 4 groups out of hope. Its pretty obvious now that hope is not really something upon which you can base your life.

Hope is sometimes the only aspiration left under a dictatorship. Dictatorships are situations where the interests are completely out of balance (in favour of the dictator and supporters).

Aus hasn't reached that stage but the interest balance point has shifted further along the beam in that direction particularly now that hope rather than confidence in our system is starting to emerge.
