I voted for Latvia & Belgium, very happy to see them up there but jeesh Sweden did not deserve to win, such a boring song.

Budget aside perhaps the most interesting thing for me is ALP membership is up 10 000 since 2012, the highest since the 90s while Liberal membership is slipping.

Watched it in a pub with a bunch of people, we were shocked at how short the speech was and how little detail he went into. Not surprising considering the health cuts, the Victorian cuts, the welfare cuts ect...

Hope you're all excited for the budget this week!  A few things we already know:
- A new tax on Netflix and other streaming services
- Huge cuts to existing parental leave benefits, and lost tax credits for stay-at-home parents, in order to pay for investments in childcare;
- Cuts to pharmacies (particularly loss of subsidies for over-the-counter medications).

I wonder what lesson they supposedly learnt? Ugh, they're so ing useless this government. Can't wait to vote them out.

Bandt's faction got rolled.

VIC state budget is excellent, very impressed with Dan Andrews and team.

Yes, looking forward to 2016.

Bandt overall against Labor had a swing against him last election, which is odd considering his 7% personal swing. He'll be safe though.
11  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Australia General Discussion on: May 01, 2015, 11:08:10 pm
I'm expecting the ALP to conduct a major push for Bandt's seat, from the people I've spoken to they don't expect to win but if they're ever going to win it back 2016 is a pretty good environment to try.

2013 was probably a better environment for them to have won, I'd think.

Not really considering Gillard was dumped and Labor was on the nose.

This season is awesome, some of the highest quantity of characters together in one season of newbies. But it's also the highest concentration of assholes in quite some time. Only halfway likeable people left are Mike, Tyler and Sierra, and she's just there and not doing anything.

Mike is the only decent human being left in the game, if he doesn't win I'll kill Jeff Probst.

Oh I see - this is just a thread for people to promote radical homosexual agenda at the expense of religious liberty.

What do you mean?

You're taking an extreme position to try to make pro-traditional marriage people look bad.

Aren't you gay though? Like how can you hate yourself so much?

The Greens voters profiled in that article have such a basic understanding of politics. Like, you vote Greens because of their international politics!? Like what even!???

Also, they supported the Liberal speaker in the Vic Senate over Labors guys, it just doesn't make sense. They're infuriating at times.
17  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Australia General Discussion on: April 25, 2015, 06:46:18 am
The Greens are such a joke of a political party, I can't even with them.

Context? No?

Just in general, but recently it's been the taking credit for things they didn't achieve - ie. Sam Hibbins claiming the new 50 trams Labor ordered as being his achievement. I'm a hack so probs don't listen to me lol.

Nah. It's a fair enough thing to say. Most places where they have a track record, they're seen as a bit've a joke.

It just annoys me how smug they are and how little the understand the mechanics of politics. Like, they want to close Hazlewood, good so do I but they haven't offered what to do with the people who will become unemployed because of it - they really don't give a sh**t about workers. It's frustrating because they paint Labor as uncaring but the reality is they don't give a sh**t either.

Will is scum.
Rodney is scum.
Sierra is scum.
Tyler is scum.

I am appalled at all of them, to just stand there and let Will act the way he did means they were all complicit in his actions. This is the most uncomfortable episode since Sue had her melt down, even worse than what either Colton or Naonka ever said.

I'm feeling Shirin is in a really good spot atm? Like the little clip included of her stratergising and suggesting that Carolyn is a huge threat works to her advantage.
22  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Australia General Discussion on: April 12, 2015, 07:30:53 am
Newspoll is bad for Labor.
23  Forum Community / Off-topic Board / Re: Anyone else watching Survivor? on: April 12, 2015, 12:03:42 am
It's so hard to know where this show is going because the editing is all over the place this season. Like last episode I was convinced there was an all girls alliance but then no Sierra flips again. And, like Shirin appears to be on the bottom but she takes up about half the confessionals suggesting that she is an important player. Then there's Tyler and Carolyn who are so ing boring yet they really have all the power but get barely any screen time.

Jeff claimed this is a great season but I just don't see it yet because the people doing are really unlikeable   ... I mean Dan and Rodney are hardcore misogynists, Mike is just annoying, Tyler/Carolyn are really boring and like is Will even on this show? I'm hoping something changes, regardless I just want Shirin to win - she is awesome and one of the most likeable players on the show.

This current season is just angering, everyone I like keeps going home. Now, I really need Shirin or Jenn to win.

This makes me hard.

a) Obvs

b) but they need to be careful about expectations...

I was at a young Labor thing the other day and everyone was basically wet over the prospects of Hillary as president lol.
