Ah well, better ScoMo then a grubby sexual predator union hack like Shorten.
Bold words.

Got anything to back that up? Because if it's just your opinion, that counts for two fifths of five eighths of fuck all.

Honestly Rev, pull your fucking head in.

You're more focussed on barracking for a team and "getting one over the lefties" than wanting people effectively run the country to the benefit of everyone. A centre-left party and a moderate-left party are not even close to "socialist" and Di Natale was barely in parliament, let alone in a leadership position within the Greens during Labor's second spill in 2012 (he entered July 2011).

This isn't about Labor or the Greens, no amount of whataboutism or hypotheticals can distract from the shitshow that was the Liberal party this week. I want to see decisions made that are good for everyone, not made to troll people on the other side of the fence.

You really don’t know about the rape allegations against him?

I’ll pull my head in as soon as you pull yours out.
You’ve turned what could have been a discussion about how the federa turmoil could affect our state into another argument between us because you’re butt hurt over a cheeky comment about your political idols. Lol

Honestly Rev, stfu. Shit like this is why you don't get a good rep on here. You're a troll and you know it.

From what I gather rev wants no shit. We seem to get too much of it in Australian politics from all sides. So let him exercise his right to free speech. If anyone doesn't like it (including you [Shuz]), they can stick it.

Did Labor suspend parliament while they switched leader?

If my memory serves correctly the Labor meeting was for 4:30, and Parliament was due to close at 4:30, so they suspended it like 20 minutes early. Not a whole day.

Shuz & Nathan, are more interested in attacking people for their views/opinions/beliefs, then having a discussion.

Anyhow...seems Pyne had a hand in Morrison being voted in by the party, and a few other members from SA sided with Morrison.
With all the shit that Frydenberg has thrown at our state, its concerning that he is deputy leader.

Is the current changing of Prime Ministers really that bad?

A nine year period from 1967, when then PM Harold Holt went missing, till 1975 when Malcom Fraser became PM, we had 6 people serve as Prime Minister.
Compared to the 12 year period at the moment that has seen 5 people serve as PM, with Rudd making a brief return as he got his revenge on the red hed.

Oddly there's a swimming center named after Harold Holt, who went missing while swimming.... :sly:
Chris Watson(1904) is the only Prime Minister we've had that wasn't born in a Commonwealth country(born in Chile).
And Bob Hawke is the only South Australian born, to be Prime Minister.

Pretty sure the right to free speech isn't a defence against defamation suits. I'm no lawyer, however Rev might like to re-phrase his comment out of consideration for that as the publisher can be held liable I believe.

I'm not going to rephrase a thing. What he's accused of is in the public domain.

It’s expected that the prime minister is going to announce Adelaide as the HQ for Australia’s new space agency tomorrow.
