Re: Ozzie election thread mk II

The wife and I both voted straight ALP for the house and the senate, some weeks ago. Postal voting is now easy. No doubt the Tories will try to make it difficult again, as a prelude to introducing voluntary voting. Now the fun part, watching Ummm explain his policy backflips over the next few months...

Re: Ozzie election thread mk II

The problem is that these voters are generally not in the two areas that will really call the shots. The Senate contest is also pretty important. There are some seats that might be in play, Benelong for example, lots of yuppies there, innit? Also a couple of the inner Melbourne and Brisbane seats t...

Re: Ozzie election thread mk II

I think Wambers is calling an ALP win. With any luck he will be right. There is a tiny sliver of hope. As Mat the Expat asserted some while ago, the pollsters are only canvassing potential voters via their landlines. That leaves an awful lot of (younger? less conservative?) voters whose voting inte...

It's quite surreal that Tony Abbott will be the PM tomorrow evening. It's f**king depressing. He won't be. Anybody want to bet? Tony Abbott won't be the next PM?

Gordon has the biggest junior catchment in the nation. The Corporation has no juniors, at all. None.

The mungoes are still rabbiting on about the Vichy regime, over on Mungoes Unlimited. The inconvenient truth is that the French people do not seem to care much, if at all, about Vichy persecution of the 13 man code.

According to the C2 website, the resistance settings are purely designed to allow for a range of rowing experiences, emulating everything from a racing scull at the lowest level, up to, presumably, a clunky boat.
