Such a healthy and united government we have!

Also removing the climate change targets in a bid to strengthen his standing in the party shows that he doesn't believe in what's best for his country, and will backflip his own beliefs in order to get what he wants.

Weak.

From Gough becoming Prime Minister in 1972, to Howard losing in 2007, we had 5 PMs in 35 years.
We've now had 5 PMs in just over 10 years, we're about to get our 6th, and will almost certainly get our 7th not too long after that. Stability in Australian politics is gone - for many and varied reasons. One reason is that from Rudd to Turnbull, there hasn't been a decent PM amongst them, and the next two hopefuls don't look like being any different. Anyone with enthusiasm for either a Coalition or Labor government or a Dutton or Shorten PM (or any other current possibility), is more optimistic about politics than I could ever be.

PS: Dutton. DUTTON? What are they thinking?

Dutton??? I know, surely there are better candiates

Reading social media this morning, there is a move to promote Julie Bishop as a candidate - fair dinkum, she would have to be the worst ever, loyal to who ever holds the reins - LOL

Combining Supercars and Politics:

If, as widely canvassed, there will be an election campaign running while the Bathurst event is also running,

Could we see a car running advertising for a political party.

It has happened before with that Canadian chappie.

I'm sure there may be some better choices than Dutton, maybe Mr Pyne.

The more I think about it, the more I think that Mr Duttons leadership challenge is governed by a hand, or numerous hands up his arse.

So he'd be the equal of Shorten then...

No doubt, the Police Force would also be surprised.

He was there for only 9 years (and is alleged to have left under a cloud).

quote:
3. Several other previously published articles since the 2001 Federal election have alluded to allegations of Mr Peter Dutton’s possible misconduct, as the reason he left the Queensland Police Force in 1999. This includes a detailed article by the journalist and author Madonna King, titled “Good Cop Bad Cop,” on 9TH August 2014 in the Sydney Morning Herald


https://www.change.org/p/australian-royal-commission-into-institutional-responses-to-child-sexual-abuse-case-study-34-royal-commission-call-peter-dutton-mp-others-to-testify-in-sex-abuse-case-study-34/u/19631906


An ideal scenario for Labor would be for Dutton to be elected as Liberal Leader and therefore prime Minister,

At least one, possibly two National members have pledged to cross the floor, thus enabling labor to get a no-confidence motion.

This would result in PM Dutton leading the Libs into the election.

As soon as Dutton nominated, Labor would refer his eligibilty to run for Parliament to the High Court. If disqualified, then who is the Lib leader and if not disqualified, the ruckus only has to cost him 2% to be not elected.

Even better for them, if Dutton flukes getting elected, probably as an opposition MP, because the High Court is so slow, would be for the H C to disqualify him later and cause a bye-election so that PM Shorten could crow a lot.

quote:
Mr Dutton gets cash from a family trust that owns two Brisbane child care centres – reportedly $5.6 million between 2010 and 2018. This might breach Section 44 of the constitution, which prohibits politicians from receiving any “pecuniary interest” from the government.


https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/national/2018/08/22/peter-dutton-question-time-section-44/

There is absolutely no way that I could vote for Labor again with Bill Shorten as leader. I can find absolutely no evidence that he can be trusted and much reason that he can not.

Dutton is a no-vote, no-brainer.

I still think that a vote for Grant Denyer is the best option if Dutton gets up.

Seriously, I cannot see any possibility of Labor not winning the next election and creating prime minister Shorten.

I hear Canada is giving sanctuary to Aussie Asylum seekers.
