Politics Super Thread - keep it all in here

    I’m not going to lie….

    Malcolm Turnbull > Rudd

    discuss



  • Not a fan of either to be honest. Rudd is well spoken and conveys himself well but I think he could have a better support staff around him. I’m not paying any real attention to the policies that either are trying to put forward but they both seem pretty quiet to me at the moment.



  • domestic politics is a yawn and has been since the mid to late 8o’s.

    In fact all domestic politics worldwide is not much chop. Bar a few extremists every major party is drifting towards a centrist blamange.

    7 years of study in political science without once having to address the rabble of Aus politics made me happy

    are you much of a fan of Geopolitics?



  • Indeed.

    It was my chosen post grad study

    Respectfully, I disagree - Only because I get in too much trouble with people from other countries discussing their politics and how it relates to the rest of the world.

    That said I’ll be happy when by definition that the Liberal Party realises that they’re not a liberal (classical or social) party at all but a Conservative party.

    At what? Obviously not in the polls,or maybe trying to throw mud with fake emails.Whats your point?



  • Rudd’s real aim in life is to replace Ban-Ki Moon

    The worst thing howard did for the liberals was win the election before last. If he’d lost that one they’d be back in by now as it is they’ll be in the wilderness for some time to come (thankfully). Even longer if they leave turnbull there.

    Turnbull is the liberal equivalent of mark latham.

    States should not exist anymore. Expand local council & federal responsibilities and get rid of the layer of bureaucracy in the middle. States made sense when it took 3 weeks on horseback to cross the country. It doesn’t anymore.

    Discuss any or all.

    Surely there’s one or more statements in that lot that will start some debate (or possibly get this thread closed…)



  • He’s better at lieing



  • Rudd was an absolute twit on Rove a few weeks ago. Painful to watch.

    I reckon Joe Hockey would go well as opposition leader.


  • Banned

    I have worked at NSW state parliament house. How can I put this. Your dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t. It doesn’t matter who is in power as the bureaucrats run the show. Unfortunately we don’t get to vote for them.

    Cheers



  • There are deffinately too many levels of government softlaw. I have the opinion that we would all be better off if state politics was abandoned and have sub-electorates under them. I think things would than move quicker, there would be less deadwood and money can be streamlined more efficiently.



  • yawn.



  • Kul = Skiing in Whistler, Strawberry daiquiris, Malcolm Turnbull, Range rovers and white wide brimmed hats 😆
