The last time that was the case, John Howard was Prime Minister.

I vote for the local candidate that I think will best represent my electorate first, the party policies second, and the leader third. Sometimes, it might be a protest vote against the member whose party is in government, but not doing what I think is best for Australia. Sometimes that changes around a bit, but it's never just for the leader - besides, going by the past decade, he/she probably won't be the leader for long.

would never happen in my seat Federally, absolute right wing, currently Nationals, was Nationals for years with a slight 10 year or so slight to the right more when the seat was held by a Liberal member, but she upset Tony so decided not to run at the last election so the seat slipped comfortably back the Nationals, a former AFL football coach who had been sitting in State politics

As far as State goes, since inception of this seat it has been National, not sitting with an Independent

Oh, I see. Do you only vote that way in state elections?

More likely to explode, but I'll keep an eye out for either of them. Meanwhile, he keeps spending big dollars on political advertising six months before the election. I can think of better things he could do with that money.

Is Scott Morrison the most ill-equipped PM in history?

At least Abbott and Turnbull had some above average intellectual capability. At least Rudd had great diplomatic skills. This guy is absolutely hopeless.

It is both funny and embarrassing. Like watching someone drown.

I can see why the party elected him, he is enough right of centre to keep all the trouble makers (read Abbott et el) happy

I think they're finally realising that younger generations coming through are the biggest threat to right wing politics that exists. They need to try and silence them as much as possible and limit their individual thought in order to survive.
