Well - Labor looks to have both its seats and also the defacto SA seat held by an independent who votes Labor.

Polls were not that accurate.

It shows that lies do work.

At least we will stop getting those bloody robo calls.

Apparently about 100 years since an Opposition has lost one of its seats in a Bi-Election.

so do the coalition still have a majority in the lower house???

Yes - these were the seats relating to dual citizenship - they all went back to the original people - so status quo !

But - makes it harder for Libs now. You always like a bit of a majority in case of illness etc.

yes but not in the Senate where they rely on independents to get legislation through as the opposition votes against as a matter of obstruction.

Results of By -elections went as they should.
The only fly in the ointment was that there should have been no need for them if Bs Bills Cast iron rock solid citizenship checks had been as good as he said they were..
The mere sight of Talkbull on the country hustings would be enough to make you vote Labor.country boy.JPG Sad to say of our politiians. Mal doesn't instil any confidence while B Bill will tell any fib he can to gain power.

Not sure if this should go in the laugh of the day section.

Unzeds Winston Peters is upset at Australia deporting back home Kiwis who commit crime in Oz.
So upset he reckons Australia should stop "poaching " New Zealand's flag and just stick a Kangaroo on our flag


It might be a better idea if he told all his fellow country...people to either
Stop committing crimes in West New Zealand
or get off their ass and take out citizenship before they embark on a life at other peoples expense.

false hope SJ:rolleyes:

You still have the...
Your car has been in accident
I have a grants commission fund to disperse
You have inherited a large sum of money
Your computer has a virus that I need access to fix

and a hundred others to robo call you during the day and night before switching you to a shonk if you pick the phone up.

Both side have a point and should be able to express it BUT one side wont tolerate the others sides right to free speech.
The Vic Cops are required to ensure safety BUT instead of removing or keeping those bent on mayhem away they find it easier to try and financially impede the ones subject of violence from holding a peaceful meeting.

The Country has too many "enclaves" and an example is the "gangs " issue in Victoria.
You have Sudanese migrants come to Australia "for a better life" but march in the streets protesting they don't have "gangs".
They however were marching under SOUTH Sudanese Flags so its obvious they don't consider themselves Australian sort of like the Australians who all become Greeks when Australia plays Greece in the soccer:bag:

Well 1% of the crime in Vic are caused by the Sudanese...well it does sell newspapers especially owned by Billionaires and CEO probably live in Toorak or overseas in a gated community. I've wrote beforehand - 1 week a coma with a Muslim fella. When you experience that, then preach! I have no problems. That wasted the BIG brain injury actually...:hilarious:

True Bazz - but how many Sudanese are there ? You may well find 1% of crime by Sudanese across Melbourne may equal 1/5 - whereas the other stat is - say 1/100. 1% of total crime in one VERY small minority might well be huge - for that minority.

I'm half Greek, but the Socceroos are always my favourite national team. My dad was born in Greece, but he would go for the Socceroos before Greece too. We were happy when Greece won the Euro Cup though.

this is true. i see how mass muslim immigration into europe is changing europe (not for the better), so it's crazy how so many australians want mass muslim immigration into australia. the japanese are smarter when it comes to immigration

As much as I hate to say it - we've seen London - and its not pretty. Germany etc are going down the same path - huge influx of poor, illiterate, no language skills - and don't want to assimilate.

We have a chance to keep the Country the way the majority like it. Surely that is our right. Japan does the same thing - even more so - and no-one criticises them.

We still can have immigration - but on our terms. People who come here have to want a new life - not the old one - and try to change us. They should come here for our freedoms and peace - not just for welfare.

Sudanese community in QLD seems to have settled in nicely.

Remember there is now Sudan and South Sudan.

quite right and all those who came out here "for a better life" were quick to cast their vote for the "old" country just like they still live there.
Marching in the street under your old flag even though Sth Sudan is a "new" country shows no willingness to assimilate.

You even have one "Sudanese" Australian??? with a large family complain her kids commit crime because "we" i.e the taxpayers don't pay her enough money.
.
Statistics can be twisted anyway you like and saying they only commit 1% of crime is a cop out because in actual fact population wise it means they commit up to 37% of violent crime like home invasions.
The bottom line is Vic Government and Police heirachy are trying to brush it under the rug because they don't want to be accused of picking on certain cultures.

To be fair you also have a "tradie " bash an innocent man while his brother laughs.
The Beak gives him bail.
Because he has a job and a place to live the beak thinks its safe to let him on the streets BUT he had those things and still assaulted someone.

Sounds like an old remake of a Clint Eastwood movie.
