Here you go Meli, some light reading from one of your heroes, but still not worth the 6 bucks it has been knocked down too. She obviously writes as well as her fuckwit husband.

Seems there is considerable debate over where the name originated, but seems pretty certain he adopted the name that someone else coined.

And then there is…

That one could have been written by @LB 15, at least the final paragraph.
But clearly the only one debating that he coined it himself is you. 

I watched the handbag fight last night. It was about informative as a Paul Gallon press conference. What astounds me is that there are so many morons that let that kind of shit influence they way they vote. 

The only take away from it is that a smart strong leader (even if you don’t like him) is a better team captain than a lightweight clown. Federally the ALP may wind up with the same problem as Queensland. If they win they are stuck with a moron as leader.

Oh course according to you, Greeks are all knowing, wise and politically astute.

Like Abo’s.
The only Greeks I met who knew about Australian politics were Aussie Greeks who moved there. Admittedly there were a few and they did pop up in unusual places.

Maybe Melli the Greek in reception was an Aussie Greek. Leaving off the Aussie part made it “sound more impressive”. Leaving off an important fact is lying in my book.

True, except:

ScoMo isn't smart.

ScoMo isn't strong.

ScoMo is a fragile ego fuckwit. He's not anywhere near the same level of competent politician as Howard was.

Albo is - meh, Albo. Not a lot happening there. But I've decided that Morrison has to go, as I did back when Howard was PM and outlived his usefulness.

After the ALP fucks things up comprehensively the LNP will be back in for another 3 terms if past history is anything to go by. A timeout will be good for them.

I very much doubt that he coined his own nickname (got any proof of that?) and every leader in the countries history has referred to the government using their name during an election campaign. 
It was an article in the age which mentioned he coined his own nickname. Perhaps reality is just that he has embraced it - he uses it as part of his Twatter handle.

Your favourite Winston refered to "the Liberal party" in most of his electioneering. He may have used the phrase "A Howard government" occasionally, but mostly I rememeber him refering to the Liberals - as did the rest of the party. If little Johnny didn't have the hubris to insist on everyone in the party calling it the Howard government, then ScoMo hasn't earned the right to insist on it.

Shame about Barnaby if what you say is true.

Edit: Just read Rob's reply. I'd like to have quoted the beetoota advocate.

Mate, I take it you're not on the 'Team of 3.5 million'?

The public housing program that was going to build 1000 new affordable houses was a typical socialist doozey.  How many did they actually end up completing, 50 or so? Given the program was allocated $800m that works out to be $16m a house. 
Actually it was 100000 houses. Ur correct. In fact it was never a 'team of  $5 million. Probably 3 million at best and on latest polls  below 2 million. And if there's any NZ left  by next election it'll be below  1 million. I think they've managed a couple of hundred 'affordable' homes. With average price around $920000 I guess affordable is a relative term with average income below $50000. NZ has gone from  3rd world to banana republic. Cost of living around 40 % dearer than Oz. Elect Albo at your peril Oz. The only promise he'll keep is that he will change things.  Good luck !

Maybe you should stay in more interesting Hotels.

Greeks are privileged. they can hang shit on Australian Libs anytime, anywhere. And believe me, they do. 
I'm sure they are privileged, given that national debt in Greece is north of $400 billion USD, the basket case of Europe.

So your point is that there is no proof whatsoever that he coined his own nickname and our greatest ever Prime Minister DID refer to his Government as 'The Howard Government'.

Good post dude, you really hit that one over the fence.

So less than half the Australian national debt for 2021/22. Big basket.
Our national net debt at the end of this financial year is projected to be $631.5 billion AUD. That equals $442.30 billion USD. Finn quoted the Greek debt as being more than $400billion USD. 400 is not less than half of 442.

This is why education is so important.

You've got me. I'll vote liberal now because I was wrong to believe an Age article which stated that Scomo coined his own nickname. It was of such vital importance that I should have dug deeper as you clearly have.

I've forgotten if there was a point to this. Were you arguing that Scomo doesn't engage in identity politics? or that he does but it's OK because the other side does too? Or that he does and that's a good thing.

You changed me saying may to DID? Seems a bit dishonest.

So what if Morrison is a dickhead? I will vote for the GOVERNMENT that I feel is best equipped to face the many challenges ahead, not based on the leader taking a short break to Hawaii two years ago.

But each to their own I guess.

No I didn't say he doesn't engage in identity politics (Seems a bit dishonest :) ) I was lampooning you clowns that do. Look I don't give a fuck who you vote for, or if your decision is based on a spread in the Women's Weekly showcasing his new look.

Another one over the roof of the members stand.

Yep.

Problem is, when I'm faced with a choice between relatively hapless dickheads and religious nutcases (which is anyone who thinks their sacred book gives them moral authority), I go for the hapless dickheads every time. They're less dangerous overall.

The LNP is carrying too many of the religious types ATM and they need to be culled.

If the LNP get back in, shrug, fine, I've no love for the current ALP but I don't utterly despise Albo the way I did Shorten. I'd vote against them next time around if they did get up this time. Doubt they can do too much damage and it's hard to see how they can fuck up the deficit, that's already been achieved.

Indies first of course and No Notion/Palmer Pig Party and Greens last.

Hers where I give you some credit.

You understand that politics are about ideology and direction.

And you have the balls to maintain your principles.

The rest of the vacuous fucks here flip flop.

Standing for something deserves the appropriate kudos.

Standing for nothing deserves scorn and derision.

Something for everyone, fill your fucking boots.
