Jane Prentice basically just said 'we need to turf Tony' in political terms. WHat she actually said was 'we need to have a discussion about how we go forward', but that was in response to 'Do you think the coalition needs to loom at Tony Abbott's leadership' or similar.

Things closing up a bit, but the ALP is still in the better position. 40-39-3, 7 in doubt.

...and even if the ALP is just outside of govenment, they're in the box seat with the BOPpers, and even if they don't get to form government with a minority, this is a truly remarkable result.

Antony Green's comp says majority ALP government.

Unbelievable.

Yes, state and federal are different, but this would never have been possible without Abbott.

She was outspoken in the extreme, but unlike many of the loudest voices, she had something to say. I didn't agree with a lot of it though Tongue

Poll on the fairfax websited with over 25,000 votes has a 92% negative reaction to the announcement.

Admittedly, the readership skews left, but still... I think this might be the 'jumped the shark' moment.

This is also real.

The only kids who had extravaganzas when I was little were the Jewish and Greek kids, although I think they've spread more widely in the following years.

It's not indecent, but it's not particularly good either.

Indeed.

The usefulness of this poll result is in seeing the number of people not aligned with either side, and correlating it to education in critical thinking.

The US should just stop participating in the olympics.  Let Europe finance these boondoggles and host the games in their former colonies.

Then we could start our own pan American games that honors talent, positive competitive spirit, and frugality.

But that'll never happen.

You guys are a former European colony, though.

Here's a picture of me and the friendboy lying in a park because my back was completely screwed up and I couldn't move Tongue

The moustache is now dead, and the hair has grown out, but the beard remains Tongue


Edit: The pic disappeared or something? Here we go again:

One of the big developments over the last year was the increase of other people appearing in photos with the members of this site. The solo selfie was expected to dominate, but didn't. We even had pictures with nobody in them Tongue

So a slight rebranding is required.

Maintain maturity and niceness, and don't post pics of other people if they weren't taken with you or they might not want them on this site.

I'd vote for the Social Democratic Party minus Justice, personally.

Dunkley is one of the three for me, before LaTrobe, but it certainly does make a few more within reach if there's an effort put into them.

Labor up 60-40 in Victoria makes me happy. Only actually means 1-3 seats, but still.

A former neighbour of mine has a silver Mercedes with the number plate HH 1942, which is definitely a personalised plate, and I've always wondered...
49  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Australia General Discussion on: December 23, 2014, 10:41:23 am
Put it this way... Labor was required to put up a candidate, and there's definitely power in the position, but they won't be disappointed by the result, as it makes it a bit easier for the lefty block to get things done.
