Ok, before you get 40 pages deep, yeah I remember the last effort on the old Forum... lol

What is the difference in layman's terms for us foreign folk. I haven't really got the gist of who is who in the Aussie sandpit. Might help better understand what you lot are going on about... (maybe)

Our Labor Party (ALP) is the same as your Labour Pary with Jacinta, the ALP leader is currently Anthony Albense (Albo)

Our Liberal Party (LP) is the current Government and is led by Scott Morrison, our current Prime Minister (aka ScoMo or Scotty from Marketing)

The National Party (NP) has had several names, they are in a coalition relationship with the LP, so they are in Government at the moment as well, they are 'supposed' to represent the interests of regional and remote Australians,who cares who they are led by, although he is Deputy Prime Minister

The Greens are the same as your Greens and no-one cares about them - they are irrelevant LOL

OMG, can you tell me how many Greens were in the Lower House when that was said?  Remember the Lower House is where the Government sits, where it has control

So who introduced and approved it in the lower house then if it wasn't the gov that she 'led'? Bottom line remains that she was the one in the top seat at the time and bears responsibility for it!

First up, I never said Greens anywhere. That is an assumption on your part Trev.

Next, google isn't very forthcoming in an answer to your question but from your tone I imagine you have an answer?

Julia made a deal with the devil (whoever they may have been) to form a minority government. That means she made a coalition government.

As simple as that.

the answer is ONE - the Greens made a big song and dance about it, the right media, fed by the Libs picked up on it and ran with it

One Google search and I go it - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_Australian_federal_election

Quote
The 2010 Australian federal election was held on Saturday, 21 August 2010 to elect members of the 43rd Parliament of Australia. The incumbent centre-left Australian Labor Party led by Prime Minister Julia Gillard won a second term against the opposition centre-right Liberal Party of Australia led by Opposition Leader Tony Abbott and Coalition partner the National Party of Australia, led by Warren Truss, after Labor formed a minority government with the support of three independent MPs and one Australian Greens MP

the inference was there from the previous post, and to be truthful I actually thought the previous post was yours

all good Trev. from my end it was simply a play on what JG said, I have no time for any side of politics. just like choosing cancer or a stroke to kill you.

Gillards government wasn't a coalition. The 3 independants and one green agreed to maintain supply to Gillard ALP government. That made it possible for the ALP to form government.

The ALP had to negitiate with those 4 to get any new legislation passed. Gillard did it so well the ALP never lost a vote on the floor.

Other than both sides being political parties, they are not the same. They have very different policies and agendas.  One party thrives on this ignorence and it is why it has remained in power.
