After the "Petition" rubbish I didn't think the week could get more entertaining but Labors 6 month wait for an examination of WHY they lost an apparently unlosable federal election was released.
Chief inquirer J Weatherwall who almost sent south Australia to wall over all things Green and left it probe to being in the dark released his findings.
Basically as expected it was a white (sorry Voldy NO racism intended) wash of the actual reasons and no Mea Culpa
Instead it was a mixture of "poor" and "mixed" messaging during the campaign.
BS BILL had already pre empted it and explained his way out of responsibility'

They could have worked it out in a week instead of six months and most of those seven days would be compiling answers from one day talking to those on the street.
A sneering BS Shorten that they tried to fix by having him talk "presidentially" to no avail. It made him look condescending instead.
Shortens sudden memory recall over a $48K donation from a few years before the night before his RC appearance
Taxes and more Taxes
Franking Credits that affect self funded retirees
C Bowen telling people if they didn't like it to "NOT vote for Labor" . That's what a lot did and the only good advice Labor gave.
Getting into bed with the Greens with over the top emissions policy that anyone with half a brain knows would send the country bankrupt or left in the dark
Being UNABLE to cost their Green Policy and coming up with "It will cost more to do nothing" waffling sowed they didn't have a clue
Telling a "struggling" waterfront electrician earning $250K asking about tax that "labor was looking at it" knowing full well he was going to get more tax
That same electrician being frog marched off the wharves and sacked for asking the question.
Telling one lot ( inner city trendies) they were against Adani but telling others they would let due process take place. (that issue and a little help from the Greens Bob Brown lost them a lot of seats in Qld)

Sadly Labor still has those same policies and has learnt nothing because they are stuck with their socialist ideology.

It's about time Q&A was called out, that show is a disgrace!

.
An actual apology from the ABC for allowing those on Q&A to sink slow they could walk under a snake with their hands in the air would be better as the show has already aired and those poisonous points of view are now out there.

Political left & right, an astrological perspective.


I don't agree with everything in this video but it is interesting. I am a Taurus but I am close to the centre when it comes to economics.

I am getting sick of this Bandt bloke using fire deaths to promote his beliefs.

Half the reason for fire outcomes is the lack of clean-out of u/growth and burns. His mob are the the ones who fight this.

It's an easy process to get a permit in Queensland.

Idiots lighting fires, lack of rainfall, disturbed ecosystems (deforestation) with a mix of highly volatile introduced taxon brought to you by the Horticultural, Agricultural and Foresty industries > more catastrophic fires

The Greens come from Planet nutter but wont go home.
If its anti social or disrupting normal life they are into it.
Pill testing, decriminalisation of drugs (that are illegal for a reason) and of course Global warming climate emergencies.
They will not let facts intrude on their alternate reality.

Fires have been BAD in the past and will be again.
They claim fires are starting early due to "global warming" but in NSW the fire season starts in OCTOBER and history shows since 1900 that 11 of the 48 worst fires have started in OCTOBER.
The Greens totally ignore for bad fires to be BAD you need...
FUEL ….Lots of it......The more fuel the fiercer the fire
Dry conditions with low humidity ( fuel burns hotter)We happen to be in middle of a drought which happens a lot in this country...NATURALLY.
Wind...….pushes fire to burn available fuel FASTER so it feeds on itself.

Lack of backburning/ hazard reduction is one major cause of fuel build up along with time....its been since around 1994 in most areas for fuel build up.

Add into that the most crucial ingredient....People....Urban sprawl and going "green" moving to live amongst the gum trees (hum the song if you like) which is why you can have loss of life..sometimes a lot like in Victoria which has its fire season actually start later than NSW which starts a little later than Qld.

The Greens are probably happy the fire season is seemingly bad because it give them opportunity.
They discount their opposition to hazard reduction as a cause and go straight for global warming as the cause......
