I hope the Victorian Libs don't remove this corrupt pile of horse sh*t. They deserve to go down in a landslide, 2002 style.

2 lots of postal ballots have been found dumped in laneways

http://www.smh.com.au/national/brunswick-mum-upset-by-dumped-postal-vote-envelopes-discovery-20170918-gyjw8m.html (Found 17 ballots inder her child's cubby house in Brunswick)

http://www.smh.com.au/national/second-pile-of-samesex-marriage-surveys-found-dumped-in-melbourne-laneway-20170919-gyklh2.html (Found in a laneway beween Little collins, and Collins streets, also adressed to Brunswick)

Good to know that the worst has been confirmed.
Also, I don't think it's coincidental that the suburb that both the piles were adressed to is the most left-leaning suburb of Melbourne.

Wasn't Abbott the Harper of the Southern Hemisphere.  Essentially both him and Stephen Harper were seen as two sides of the coin.  Interestingly enough both were removed from power right around the same time albeit different methods, Abbott by his party since they knew they were toast with him, while Harper by the electorate (the Tories might have won in Canada if they dumped Harper and got a more centrist leader but that was never going to happen).  I know those two were the most hated in the developed world of conservative leaders so a lot of celebration when both were removed.

The man who head-butted Tony Abbot has had his criminal charge upgraded to "Causing harm to a commonwealth official" and now faces up to 10 years Jail.

Considering that the head-butt didn't seem to hurt Abbott all that much, this is a bit harsh imo.

Looking at past results it seems in the two party vote both parties have a floor of 47% and ceiling of 53% so Labor is pretty close to its ceiling.  When it comes to first preference that is a different story, but it seems pretty unusual for either to go above 53% or under 47%.

Could an election come soon?  Would be interesting to see both New Zealand and Australia go Labour close together as usually it seems Australia and New Zealand more often than not have prime-ministers of opposite political stripes.

Barnaby will almost certainly win the by-election in his seat, as he will be eligible to run again, seeing that he has since renounced his NZ citizenship, so I don't see it happening.

Victoria 2018 state election poll: Essential, Jul-Sep 2017

L/NP: 48 (0)

Primary: (2014)(change from 2014)

L/NP: 42 (42)(0)

At least we now have a reputable poll for the Victorian state election next year that discredits the Murdoch L/NP polls.

lol, with the cross bench not supporting him, this is a dangerous time for the government. Sure, Bennelong and New England will almost certainly stay in the coalition's hands, but by-elections throw up some extremely weird results sometimes, and there is always the chance another MP falls.
