You get what you need
Well its looking like 74-71 Coalition. 5 independents. Katter likely to go with Coalition but....that's it. Greens won't deal with Libs, NXT unlikely to do any deals and Wilkie said he won't. Leaves it with Kathy McGowan. Its pretty well up to her. Lib Minority govt or back to the polls?
Still, it's going to be difficult to run the country the way the seats are looking right now. The LNP have lost seats and are blaming the ALP instead of looking at themselves. Both sides had 2 months to mount a decent campaign & yet they didn't take advantage of it.
And if Morrison is to be believed they aren't going to back track on anything but rather stubbornly continue to try and push big business tax breaks and medicare dismantling - colour me surprised!
They aren't dismantling Medicare? WTF? Are people so daft as to believe flat out lies?
Perhaps it might be a good idea to wipe Medicare, and have people look after and pay for themselves, rather than bludging on the system.
It would be nice, but we need a state of the art universal health care system otherwise the low paid workers doing **** jobs will die and we'll have to import more foreigners to do the **** work.
yeah, user pays - that sounds right, dirty peasants getting healthy on my hard earned.
pretty close to forming govt
Conditional on no Union bashing
Can't wait for the Libs to have to start supporting the unions haha
To make matters worse, senate will be more hostile than ever for a coalition govt. More seats have gone over to the left side of things. If Turnbull were smart he'd give up on whatever it was that he was pushing through that started this whole mess in the first place.
I know the Libs want to 'fix' the budget and I tend to agree, we can't have the budget spiralling off ad infinitum. However you need to have measures that the senate, by and large, are happy with. 2014 budget was a fail because the senate was never going to buy it. So to keep both sides happy an effective leader would introduce a variety of measures to satisfy all parts of the political compass.
Next question - is Turnbull the guy to pull this off? My gut says no.....
And mine tells me that the right person to do this doesn't exist in any political party in this country at present.
??? I was under the impression that tax breaks were for small business. Not that I am opposed to lower taxes overall as Australia needs to be as competitive as it possibly can in attracting business for jobs growth.
The problem when it comes to balancing the books is that every single measure gets knocked on the head from one interest group or another. What is most damning here is when the ALP knocked all sorts of budget saving measures on the head and then decided they would put them forward as part of their own economic platform at this election.
You need an independent as Govt leader, someone who can balance both sides.
Xenophon? Or is he too bonkers?
No Union bashing. But kill them off! SURE!
No smart person is EVER going to support the filthy rotten stinking dirty corrupt and criminal unions.
How do you propose that he can kill them off now without jeopardising the deal he cut with Katter to cling to power?
I don't. It was just my thoughts in response to your regular useless drivel.
Sheesh Raj, what did the unions do to you mate?
Xenophon would be better of running for council mayor.
