A Prediction

The Liberals will lose two Senate seats in Western Australia, one to Labor and one to Palmer. The Greens’ Scott Ludlam will get his seat back, and the small eccentric parties dwindle.

  1. “Who do you trust?” poses Tony.

    “Not you big ears!” says the dwindling crowd around his soapbox.

  2. I @#*$%%^$ hope so.

  3. “the small eccentric parties dwindle”

    I live in hope that the large eccentric parties flourish.

    Such as the old Australian Labor Party. RIP.

  4. After South Australia, I wasn’t going to contradict any of Bob’s predictions BUT I will give it one more go. Liberal 3, Labor 2, ?1… perhaps The Greens. No, no… Palmer. No, no, no… the Nats. Also, agree the small eccentric parties will dwindle.

  5. The most appalling display on QT today.How can this go on. Bronwyn Bishop must go.Incredible display.Giggling and smirking at theLNP side.I feel so sad.

  7. Sorry did not think my comment went though.You will be able to read it twice.

    • It’s something worth saying twice.

      I hope to live for some years yet, but I doubt I will live for long enough to see a bigger disgrace to the speakers chair in federal parliament.

      I listened to just a snippet of today’s QT, but was shocked with what I heard.

      I wonder if there is a person learned in Practice and Proceedure on this blog that can answer the following questions.

      1.Can the opposition throw Dorothy Dixers at Bill Shorten? (ie Ask themselves questions.)

      2. Is there any avenue to review the actions of the Speaker? (Royal Commission, Senate Inquiry, Standing Commitee?) It may not be during the life of this Parliament, but if there is an avenue available, it should be telegraphed well ahead that there are going to be consequences for this prostitution of the parliamentary process. (And the prostitute that Is degrading herself and all who see her disgusting visage.)

  8. I wonder if the 15 minutes is up for Palmer ?

    Even bogan hillbillies (ie WA types) wise up at some point and realise that the fat man is not here for their benefit.

    • You misjudge a good man. His policy on boat people is the best there is, and his defence of Qantas admirable.

      And, curiously, his delayed-tax policy makes a lot of sense.

      • History will be the judge, but I believe he is a opportunistic rent seeker.

        And I also think his 15 minutes is nearly up.
