So for the locals here, was last night decided on state issues or was there a strong Abbott factor in the results? Because that is some turnaround.

RIP LJ - loved and never forgotten.

"It was dry for the second go-around. Grice, nervous, worrying about his Bathurst jinx, ran 2:25.9. The amazing Brock, using every last centimetre of bitumen, yet keeping the car straight and balanced and at full noise, came back with a staggering 2:20.0 as if to say: "Match that". And people just shook their heads, bit their lips and wondered who would be second".

The Peter Brock trophy is now where it belongs.

I refuse to believe you lot are as stupid as you act



Vastly different...Rudd/Gillard Govt had future focussed sustainable and fair policies, but Rudd's gigantic ego undermined and tore the administration down....all the time harangued by a feral Opposition leader....where as here we have Abbott tearing himself up, supported by his party and with minimal opposition.....and yet....14 points down!

I don't believe it had anything to do with Abbott and the Feds this time Wrighty.

Newman lost this one all by himself.


On the subject of "all by himself" is it time to regurgitate Bundy's posts as I alluded to earlier.

So Abbott leading the Federal party to a 14 percent deficit had no effect?

Throughout this thread while Labor was in federal power was they were a disaster and the only way out was a swing way over to the right.

Now the way out right has been found to be even worse and incompetent, it's turned into "both sides are as bad as each other".

Honestly, would that line be pedalled had the LNP held on or would it be like "sanity had prevailed"?

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

With the sharp public swing away from Neo-Liberal policies, chief among those, being the rejection of selling of public assets, I reckon both parties will have difficulty taking the public with them.....however, given the core Lib value of private ownership and free market control....considerably more so them... I await the spin from the CIS and the IPA....both shaping Abbott's policy-narrative- platform....along with Ms Credlin....given the bloody nose the public are repeatedly giving them.....

I have to ask one thing, are the QLD state lotteries still in governemnt hands or did they follow NSW's very stupid and dumb lead by selling off the goose that lays the golden egg?

The Labor gov't in Queensland ****ed the state. The succeeding LNP gov't had the chance to fix it but ****ed it up also, hence each is as bad as the other.


Some interesting stats on the ECQ website.

As at this moment the LNP has 41.13% of the primary vote to the ALP's 38.08%.

Contenders ahead on primary vote - ALP 34 and LNP 52.

Interesting result in QLD , we the voters in AUS are showing we can easily exercise our right to change a Government that we don't like.
What pisses me off is the reported Comments / involvement of media Barons trying to influence Voters & Politicions especially one with his late father have believed they are the KING MAKERS in Australia since the early 1900s . If you choose to take out US citizenship for the almighty $ , then KEEP out of our Politics.

No REM , Don't read many Papers , Local stuff & the Saturday Hearld Hun, Oh I mean Sun for a good laugh at how they, in my opinion are trying to direct our thinking instead of reporting news,I read a lot of Aus History like the works of ROLAND PERRY , & recently Bruce Guthrie a recent Editor at both Fairfax & News limited in AUS.
The History books ,again my opinion don't paint a good picture of the media involvement in Australian Politics.
PS Looking forward to the 12Hr.

The best thing that can happen for the federal Labor opposition is for Abbott to stay put.

It appears Tony's party wants him to resign so that there is no ugly leadership ballot.

Abbotts ego is too big for that, he is after-all, an excellent captain, he told us that last week! ha ha

As much as I would like Abbott to get the arse, the longer he hangs around, the more of his cronuies that will bite the dust!

There was a multitude of Federal issues that reared their ugly heads in Queensland prior to the election, they had an influence, and anybody who thinks they didn't is delusional!!

Victoria and Queensland already, probably NSW and definitely the Federal government will fall in their respective elections unless the LNP start being straight with voters and lose their arrogant demeaner!!

Its still unbelievable to think a 70+ seat majority can be deconstructed in such brutal fashion, its unheard of and as funny as all ****!!

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?
