I've met Frydenberg and can confirm he is a massive douche. He was also creepily in love with Abbott and believes him to be the next Menzies.

2014 is a sh**t year for Australia, between tragic events and incompetent leadership - has anything good happened in Australia this year?

You're all wrong, yes there is crap but some of the music up there is actually pretty brilliant. Brushing it off as crap is such a simplistic reaction to something that you merely don't like.

For me it's Dark Horse followed by Blank Space but if Uptown Funk eclipses Taylor my vote would then be there.

Hopefully we can double the fracking here in Pennsylvania to compensate.

Enjoy the increased risks of earthquakes anand water contamination. But hey, who cares you'll have ever more gas!

VLC finalised:

Liberals 14
ALP 14
Greens 5
Nationals 2
Shooters 2
Sex 1
DLP 1
Vote One Local Jobs 1

looks interesting. Minority governments are always fun, especially the strange Australian system. I think this is the first victory for the Sex Party that I know of. The Shooters, of course, had fantastic luck with the preference flow - they actually had fewer votes than the Lib Dems, Palmer, Family First and the Animal Justice Party, but gained two seats.

Absolutely terrible result all over for the Nationals.




This final result is an embarrassing example of how the way we vote for senate needs to change.

Natalie is such a good winner, she deserved it so much. Love her.

There is little danger in fracking if done properly.

He is doing this because that's what the corporations want. They literally can't even with more supply right.

Fracking is never safe, don't believe the bullsh**t that is spun about it. There is no way a person can control what happens underground.

Fracking is one of the worst practices in the world. Thank god.

I woke up and I feel sick, really horrible turn of events and a cruel end to 2 innocent peoples lives.

No doubt Abbott will milk this for all its worth.

Calm down. At least have the decency to wait until it's over.

Oh please, everyone is thinking it.

Natalie is the only deserving winner, it would be so disappointing if she doesn't win and someone like Keith does.

I'd go with the cop who murdered Michael Brown.  At least that's who I'd nominate if I were working for TIME magazine.  Or maybe I'd nominate whoever engineered the GOP victories.  Boehner?  McConnel?  Either way it'd be controversial, and that's the main thing you need.  Somebody important.  Good is good, but evil is good too, so long as it sells magazines.





The world is bigger than America...

Greg Abbott because his horridness doesn't actually affect me.

Hifly your insight is as about as useful as your prediction  that Labor will lose Macedon. Just face it you know nothing.

I really cannot see how the Liberals can keep Abbott until the next election, I mean he's a disaster and drags the government down so much. However, there only viable alternative is Bishop but she's so successful because she's been able to distance herself from the Libs. I feel like the Vic results have changed the game,  I mean it has really put all governments on notice. Campbell Newman must be incredibly nervous seeing those results and his numbers in polling despite the ridiculous amount of seats he holds.

Well it has started and both major news publications have called the Greens out for premature celebrations. The gap is 300 votes with over 8000 to be counted today. We should know all final results later today.
21  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Victorian State Parliamentary Election - 29 November 2014 on: November 30, 2014, 07:31:10 am
The Greens lead in Melbourne is down to .74% with 52% counted, I can't believe they claimed it last night. Will be funny if they lose.

But it also looks like the Libs may claw Prahran back... off the back of Green preferences. It is the nature of these seats, affluent, but socially progressive.

Regardless if the Greens don't end up winning in Melbourne they will look beyond ridiculous. However the reality is unless a candidate is up by more than 3% you can't really call a seat as so many votes are either yet to be counted or haven't been added to the official tally at the VEC. I dunno, I feel that after recounts we won't know the results for quite a few seats for a bit longer. And the VEC is totally blamable for this because they didn't count early votes as they got them as they underestimated the rate at which Victorians would vote early.

You are all getting way too ahead of yourself only half the vote has been counted. There is still a long way to go.

I don't understand by the VEC didn't count early votes and postal votes when they came in?
25  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Victorian State Parliamentary Election - 29 November 2014 on: November 29, 2014, 10:11:31 am
So, the Greens have claimed Melbourne yet their lead with 52% counted is only 1.2% - is this all a bit premature?
