    Just got asked in the pub if I know any Chinese. Old adages sum things up.

    I’m hoping that the like button will decrease the number of posts that are simply agreeing with someone’s comment without adding anything else to the discussion.

    The courageous Albanese government will be cursed by LNP landmines, international events beyond its control and bad luck

    LNP landlines? I don’t believe the LNP is sufficiently strategic for that.

    Well vote compass got it right. climate change was the main issue.
    The teals and greens must love Canavan and Joyce who boosted their vote every time they opened their mouths. complete opposite to 19.
    Liberals smashed on buyer remorse like Keating in 96 the electorate got sick of Morrison who was by now a bad gaslighter. No-one believed them on climate change. They now have to try and win back small l liberal voters with Dutton who is electoral poison as leader.
    the ALP should have won in a landslide but didn’t possibly because of their small target approach. clearly the votes for the teals and greens mean the punters are saying be more adventurous on climate change.
    The decline of one nation and UAP means the moron vote has fallen.
    The senate is clearly better for the ALP.

    The main question is why if the ALP have easily a better front bench than the LNP ( the opposite occurred in 93-96) did they put such palpable fiction in savings.

    From a tweet by Simon Birmingham:
    There will be time to explore those reasons in greater detail, but it is already clear that we (Libs) disproportionately lost the votes of many women and professionals. Issues of equality, inclusion and respect played a role, along with policy on climate change.

    Time for the old quote about learning nothing and forgetting nothing.

    Thanks for the tips, Liberals should do the opposite (never do what your enemy recommends.

    They should now target the outer suburbs of the major cities, which are taken for granted by a “New” Labor, enamoured of the upper middle class (taxpayer funded) so-called “progressives”. Let the “New” Labor fight it out with the Greens and Doctors’ Wives there, as they are already having to do in inner suburban areas. Look to the aspirational tradies and small business operators, not the rich entitled of the former “Blue Ribbon” seats.

    If the Liberals had even tried to educate the young particularly, as to the nonsense of “climate change” they may have had a chance. With everyone fighting for the green vote, trying to outdo each other in the climate round robin and ignoring the base, they had no chance. Who advises these people? They could do with some lessons from the Left.

    Climate Change !!!

    The “climate change emergency” is what we should be worried about,

    If monkeypox doesn’t cut it, then the climate emergency will be ably handled by the WHO’s new treaty powers, courtesy of all the West’s CCP-owned leaders.

    Like I’ve been saying for the past 2+ years – we’re not going to vote our way out of this.

  11. Fat Tony says:

    I also expect more States to sign up to Belt & Road Initiatives…and probably the Federal (CCP) government.

    Brisbane!

    Brisbane (QLD)
    Eligible electors:125,241
    Turnout:62.46%
    Informality:1.81%

    Are we to believe almost half of the seat of Brisbane didn’t vote in this election??

    Should this not be a lead story? “Lowest voter turn out in Australia’s history?

    In many seats nearly half of Australia’s eligible voters didn’t turn up…”?
