As long as they don't shoot themselves in the nuts, Labor wil be morals whoever the Lib leader is. The federal Libs, much like their state counterparts, have little in the way of brains, talent and judgement for what is required. They're all throwbacks and mediocrities whose main aim is to line their own pockets.If Potato Head is still leader of the opposition come next election, Labor will be morals.
I am not in love with the ALP as it is either.Yes, it's just a question of whether Labor has the guts. I think they'll stick as close as they can to their election promises then claim a mandate for greater change in 2025.
The first business of governments is to get re-elected. With the Libs so on the nose all Labor has to do is not scare the horses and they'll bolt in next time as well.
The federal Libs have presided over the NDIS for the last 9 years, and done their best to destroy it.The NDIS is an example. A fantastic reform and of enormous social benefit drowning in its own red tape and ineptitude.
The next generation of would-be, Menzies-tradition, Liberal leaders are already in parliament. In Teal.
fair comment, probably a bad exampleThe federal Libs have presided over the NDIS for the last 9 years, and done their best to destroy it.
Any red tape that negatively effecting the NDIS would be from the Libs.
But the bigger issue with the NDIS is the decision makers have been so far removed from those who the scheme supports that they have little idea of the implications if their own rules. The Libs appointed a bunch of money people to the board, and used it as a dumping ground for hopeless ministers.
Bill Shorten isnt everyones favourite pollie, but he is at least genuine in his interest in his portfolio.
Agree, if they continue to the right, they will end up battling Hanson etc for the 10% of the vote available from RWNJs. That will mean Labor stay as the only centrist party, or another party rises to fill the gap
Labor have a possibly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enact proper reform where needed, without being scared they can lose the next election.
I think they're spooked by Abbott's she lied, she lied every time he opened his mouth about Julia Gillard's broken promise on a Carbon Tax.Unfortunately I can't see the ALP putting through really substantial reforms.
The first thing they should have done is the old shock-horror look a the books and get rid of the tax cuts for the rich.
Former Howard government tourism minister Fran Bailey, who forced out Scott Morrison as head of Tourism Australia, said his prime ministership was “a tragedy for our nation”.www.smh.com.au
If there is one comment that rings true to me it is that ‘the standard you walk past is the standard you accept’
It’s easy to stick the boots into scomo. But who are the myriad of people that have enabled him by tolerating this behaviour for so long
So for 16 years old Fran sat on her arse n said nothing. Now that ScoMo's career is pretty much dead n buried she happily jumps up n dances on his grave. Says just as much about her as it does about ScoMo. *smile* politicians, not much good about any of them.Yep, telling us this now doesn't help Fran.
That leadership vote tells us so much about the liberal party. SCOMO won because Dutton was so toxic and the only alternative was a woman PMSo for 16 years old Fran sat on her arse n said nothing.

Surprised that nothing has been mentioned that 3 of Morrison's 5 secret portfolios were held by ministers who voted against him when Turnbull was kicked to the kerb (the Morrison or Dutton vote) for the Prime Ministership. A fourth was held by a National Party member, who therefore didn't get a vote. Frydenberg was the only one who voted for Morrison
Didn't trust them, or was he spying on them.
