    1. Slightly O/T, but Turnbull has backed saying sorry (and thus exposing taxpayers to extensive and expensive litigation), and given the nod to nobbling workplace reform, accompanied by fellow northshore fatboy knobend Joe Hockey- a display of pathetic invertabrate snivelling that’d ashame a bluebottle.

      I don’t think whoever gets the leadership of the liberal party’s going to make any difference- they already were a mild centrist social democrat party, they’ll now veer further to the left, and idssapear into irrelevance as they have on a state level.

      Time for a new party methinks, one that actually holds conservative/libertarian values and sticks to them.

      If the option is a pack of spineless panderers and spendthrifts over the incumbent apologise-addicted drunken sailors, the ALP’s going to be in office until the place goes bankrupt and finally turns to the inevitible Mad Max 2 dystopia that the electorate richly deserves.

    1. Turnbull (and his idiot wife) are North Shore luvvies straight out of central casting- he’s acceptable to the left, because he agrees with a lot of their fruity ideas; I think the Liberal party’s had the dick, all the wet retards and embarrassing cretins like Petro Georgiou, Bruce Baird and Dana Vaile got back in while more conservative (and effective) types like Mal Brough got the arse.

      BTW, I don’t think any party has the right to apologise (and thus expose to litigation) to anyone on behalf of taxpayers without getting their approval (via referendum) to do so- I’ll be fucked if I say sorry for something that’s none of my responsibility, particularly when the actions being apologised for saved lives and educated the alleged “victims”.

      Get ready for a return to Keatingesque black armband bollocks big time.

    1. #11 Me too, Razor, and I was wondering how many others had done the same.

      I don’t agree with Turnbull on Workchoices at all. Abandoning your principles is not the answer, especially when your policy is actually effective, even if your argument of it is not. Doing that hands the ALP a further victory and even more re-writing of history than we’re already seeing.

      Even if you are a complete tosser, like Jeremy, all your hopes, dreams and beliefs you’ve asserted, become vindicated if the mere political team you barracked for, wins an election.

      Back in my day, people taking victory by proxy were merely described as having a low self esteem.
      Go figure.

    1. I suppose in a way, yes, Jeremy, you influenced how I voted. I voted below the line on the Senate paper and numbered every box from 1 to 68. That 68th place would have went to Jeremy if he had stood for election, so instead I was forced to put some nutjob from the CEC (who spams me on a regular basis) dead last.

      Tim, he mentioned your esteemed person by name among all those (Andrew Bolt, Piers Ackerman, et alii) who must surely be gnashing their teeth and wailing at Saturday’s result.

      All those who must be “bitter”, and remain so for three years at least.

      I paraphrase, but his plummy polemic ran to such poesy as I later imagined thus:

      “Bitter as gall must it be unto [Tim Blair, &tc, &tc.]. Bitter as wormwood. Bitter as earwax.”

      (“Aha!”, Thought I. “How do you know how it tastes?”, I asked the car radio accusingly. “How do you know how it tastes?)”

      So far removed from reality is he that never would he consider for a moment that such an outcome as was seen, lo, this weekend past is like water to the wizened, fruit to the fruitless, use to the useless—yea, what grist to the gristless mills of punditry and parody this long heralded cumming of “le gauche” has provided, and in full measure!

      True. But perhaps the real plan is to let Labor undo Workchoices and for the unions to re-gain the upper hand.  Then, when unemployment and interest rates skyrocket and half the country is on strike, the Libs will be well-placed for a return to government after a single term of Labor.

      Aunie’s PM’s quoting Costello’s dad, a ‘long time Lib member’ as saying that his son was burdened with Howard’s refusal to say $orry (Costello did the Bridge walk? – a mistake IMHO) and thus the Libs are destined to sit on the opposition benches for a decade …Bet if Turncoat were to hold a referendum on $orry, he’d be a loser, as he was with the referendum on a Republic: how good is he at reading Joe Public on the big issues, hmmm …

    1. look, the ALP has a mandate for back to the future on workchoices.  That’s the kind of thing you have elections for.  Now, I happen to think that workchoices was overall a good thing badly promoted by Kevni Andrews, but my opinion is clearly overruled by the majority.
      Now, in this situation the libs must pass the new IR Bill as long as it is consistent with what the ALP promised in their election platform.  Any further though, and the coalition should amend it in the senate.Now, while passing this heap of shit, they should also make it clear that they are doing it only because the ALP has a mandate, even though they know it will cost jobs.  Harp on and on about how they know it will cost jobs.
      Dig up stories of small business laying off staff that they can no longer keep due to the risk.  Present examples of bosses unwilling to give little johnny a go because of the risk they won’t work out.  etc. etc.

      And when the unemployment rate rises, Kevni will get the blame.  And teh libns will be seen to be more contructive htan the mindless enate blockers that were the ALP/greens when they controlled the senate.

      And while I am at it, as soon as Kevni has signed Kyoto, start harping about how it hasn’t made any difference, and is typical labor – mindless and meaningless symbolism.
