    As Rachel Stewart says

    “If you didn’t see this over the weekend, it’s time for your Monday wake up call.”

    Seen the latest Aussie political poll?

    An exact reversal of 2013:

    • Draco T Bastard 2.1

      Looking at that it seems that the coalition lost it’s majority in 2016. So, two years of anti-democratic control.

      • dukeofurl 2.1.1

        How come ?
        They have a 1 seat majority over labour + greens+ independents (some are Tory friendly)

        • Draco T Bastard 2.1.1.1

          Democracy isn’t about seats. It’s about what the people want and the Australians haven’t wanted their present government since 2016.

          • dukeofurl 2.1.1.1.1

            That is irrelevant. We along with most countries have representative democracy which means the 2016 election – with both compulsory voting and preferences- they slightly chose Coalition ahead of the labour/Greens etc.
            The way its going the representatives they choose next year will be a different hue.

            As for your other comment they didn’t lose their majority in 2016, that is wrong to claim that.

    • Exkiwiforces 2.2

      Here’s we interesting article from the ABC’s News website and you might want a vomit bucket or vomit bag IRT to George the pie eater from central QLD.

    Turnbull had the opposite effect on the polls when he shoved Abbott out, they lept ahead.

  4. CHCOff 4

    This lowered business confidence stuff means less confidence in the rate of centralised accummulation.

    If every familly owned their house and New Zealand was the small business capital of the world while the same interests wrote the narrative, it would be New Zealand in the midst of the greatest economic depression since Charles Dickens.

    • dukeofurl 4.1

      There is something like 210 people who have minimum as assets of $50 mill. Even that is lopsided as IRD reckon the average is over $270 mill with a total wealth of $58 bill.
      This is not the 10%, nor the 1% but the 0.005%
