Politics is 90% about power, position, perks n pocket pissin. The other 10% is just the bones you have to throw the dogs to keep them from chewing on your arse.

The more ya practice at bull shittin the smoother ya get at it, eventually there's that much **** dribblin out ya don't even notice it runnin down your chin n staining your shirt.
Aint that the truth.

Scummo tried to defend the corruption by saying all recipients were eligible (forget worthy). Now we learn more than 40% of the rorts were for ineligible projects.

They are deadset liars, thieves, and criminals. They stole the election. They used taxpayers' money to buy votes. And don't tell me it's been done before. It's never been done on this scale, this targeted, this blatantly, ruthlessly, cynically, desperately wrongly.

******* traitors.
Nah, Shorten and his muppet puppets lost it through their inability to read the voters as well as Morisson and his muppets. The Labs policies or rambled ideas were inexplicable. Shorten tried to pass on an understanding but was nothing more than a train wreck.

This funding is not a rewrite of the failings of the red brigade.

Furthermore, if the actions of the government were illegal, throw the book at them.

And now after getting caught with their hand in the till, they have gone from "all the projects were eligible" to "no project which received funding, under this sports grants program was assessed as ineligible at the time the decision to allocate funding was made".

A hypothetical question.

If I ask my young bloke whether he took any money from the cookie jar, and he says no, only to later confess that he did, but he used it to buy me a bottle of rum. Does that make it ok?
His motives may been the same, trying to win favour.

You must live in Queensland. Every other state and territory in the country voted for the ALP by a comfortable margin. Only Queensland, where all the papers are owned by Murdoch, voted for the Lying Nasty Parties.

Good idea, getting the book thrown at them. Maybe the AFP could conduct an investig - oh. Never mind.

Corrupt to the core. Another $420 million rort uncovered. Over a billion stolen from the public for Liberal/National Party propaganda now. It's indefensible. Anyone trying to is just blindly barracking for their team. #standbyscummo

Nope, never lived in Queensland old fella.
I actually didnt realise that Labor won everywhere but Queensland. Thats pretty impressive.
Thank god for the banana benders then.
Imagine the country being run by unionists like Victoria, no thanks.

I think what spook has not mentioned they won in most other states on a 2 party system which only included the Libs (and not the Nationals). Once you include the Nationals they only won in the ACT and NT, not in any of the States. I don't vote (Aussie resident not citizen yet) but thought I'd correct. (I've assumed he is talking popular vote here)

Popular vote Labor lost to the Coalition by about a million - 5 mill something vs 4 mill something.

I figure Spook is talking 2 party preferred, a reasonable measure with preferential voting.

I haven't seen the figures but I'm pretty sure Labor won Vic on 2 party preferred.

I'm talking that the LNP won 23 of 30 seats in Qld. Outside Qld, Labor won 61 seats to the Coalition's 54.

As opposed to being run by criminal coal industry puppets?

If I was constantly praising one party, rather than pointing out the criminal corruption of the government, you might have a point. But you don't, because I'm not.

Just noting the total value of the rorts now exceeds the ABC budget.

So Spook a "criminal" politician trumps a "criminal" unionist just because they won the election!

As i said, if its criminal throw the book at them. I am not supporting them more or less on this situation as I suspect it isnt criminal so nothing will happen, you will just keep saying it is so that you maintain your rage.

So what you are now saying is thst finally some Australians are getting value for money from the Government.
The ABC have become totally irrelevant to a massive portion of tax paying Australians who dont live in the all consuming cities of Melbourne and Sydney and are not preoccupied by, well stuff that doesnt matter.

The ABC is a must for salt of the earth country people, I would go as far as saying, they'd be lost without it.

Yep im serious.
Sure there are parts relevant to us country people. And we dont have much of a choice do we which is why i was particularly hopeful Ita would have changed things up a bit or at least provided 2 sides to the stories and shows they run.
But, there is far (mostly on the TV and internet) more **** on it these days which is pure social engineering giving platforms to nobodies who are purely self absorbed that serves no purpose in surviving and making a living on the land other than to alienate and divide us. If you cannot see this you must only listen to ABC radio.

yes, those living in the bush are much better reading about fires in the murdoch press so they know to blame arsonists, then being updated by the ABC.

I watched "The Great Hack" on Netflix yesterday. Gives an interesting overview of the Cambridge Analytica involvement in global elections. One of the most interesting snippets is that the company could only operate in the UK because the technology it was using is considering a military weapon and therefor illegal to export. PsyOps is what they brought from the defence industry to the masses.

It's disturbing to see what they did, are capable of and how effective it is.
