At least Julia came with a manual… you knew she was a committed far Left socialist. You knew to expect a gender assault. You expected massive waste on blue sky smoke. But our dear leader Kevin is a different kettle of fish.

Only those determined to change our Australian way of life are attracted to the grey, lichen-draped edifice of Labor’s Trades Hall.

From there, it’s a long frustrating wait while tilting at various pre-selection ballots for safe Labor seats.

They know Australians will eventually tire of boring conservative captaincy and “let’s give the other lot a go” is a fair Aussie ethic. And only then does the fun start again.

All socialist leaders realise they only have a very short time in the sun before they are retired to lush pasture by the electorate to muse over what might have been. 

Gough couldn’t last a full term before voters redressed their mistake. Julia also failed to last a full term before her own Party redressed its own awful mistake.

Rudd also failed to last a full term but now he is back for a few weeks in a vain attempt to keep the despised Abbott out of The Lodge.

But no manual comes with Rudd. He is a loose cannon without sights. There is no Trades Hall background to this bloke. There is no solidarity song, no Socialist Forum, no crash- or crash-through, blind ideological fervour.

Rudd is far more dangerous than his vanquished predecessors, far more potentially destructive, because Rudd is driven by a blind belief in Rudd… and that’s a real worry. 

Gough also gathered adoring crowds before his little trip to Coventry.

The strangest thing of all is that a party that knows Rudd's character flaws intimately, a party whose members resigned in droves rather than serve under him has again, inexplicably, installed him as their leader.

Not because they like him. They detest him, but only because he is a populist in the same way Gough was. Rudd alone might save their precious seats.

His disastrous record is clear and not faded by less than three years’ absence. His popularity is undeniable but it will not translate to votes.

The silent majority who doesn’t care for having pics taken with him knows all about his questionable character and limited capabilities. 

In this election we need to choose between someone we don’t know and someone we do know.

For me, it’s easy! If I can’t see Rudd’s pupils, I know he is lying… and his female hands scream don’t trust me.

But that’s just me.

The ‘quality’ of thinking that Katter and Clive have the answers sufficiently confirms to me the state of mind of their followers. We disagree, I guess . . . then so be it.

Whatever you do or don’t like about Putin, at least he has balls and tells The Duma where to put their values on political correctness….. Right up the m uslim ass! Putin’s short speech! Putin Speech on Feb. 04, 2013 This is one time our elected leaders should pay attention to the advice of Vladimir Putin how scary is that? On February 4th, 2013, Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, addressed the Duma, (Russian Parliament), and gave a speech about the tensions with minorities in Russia: “In Russia live Russians. Any minority, from anywhere, if it wants to live in Russia,… Read more »

Grey Ghost. The problem I have is not with the fact that you may disagree with my point of view, I have no problem with that. Its the vindictive abusive manner with which you do so. I will defend until the day I die, your democratic right to express your opinion and your democratic right to disagree with mine. However, I will not defend nor will I condone you being a nasty offensive piece of shit towards me or anyone else for that matter, in your expression of your disagreement. My current tone has nothing to do with your point… Read more »

See that’s where you are wrong…I am an Australian before anything else……. This business about being a” Queenslander” absolutely shits me up the wall…………………… It was like Anna Bligh during the floods telling every body how great and resilient and tough Queenslander’s are.. ………then putting her hand out for the rest of the country to put their hands in their pockets after rubbing the noses of the rest of Australia in the fact of how much better the people of Queensland are than the rest of you….

Not sure I said that, Grey Ghost, but along with your uncanny ability to deduce posters’ sexual preferences, you obviously know better than I what I said. Anyway, I shan’t ruin what for you must be the unique pleasure of having someone who is not (yet) a certified lunatic agree with you.

I think that given the choice between voting for mediocrity or voting for disaster with Katter’s or Palmer’s loonies, most people would take their chances with mediocrity.

my point is that when you fuckup you take the blame with the pink bats debacle the mythman KRUDD lumped it on the baldheaded idiot who is wearing the blame that’s why he gave the mythman the arse and would serve in his circus.

I did not install Kevin Rudd …I did not install Jooolliiaaaaaaa Fucking Gillderarse ……….so do not blame me wanker!!!!! As for Tony Abbott, its just your opinion that he is a mediocre politician, certainly not mine. Abbott has not been tested at the highest level as yet. However so far he has done a might fine job of remoulding the LNP into a tight cohesive opposition and alternative government. Taking into consideration,that the LNP were a greatly fragmented party after the 2007 loss with the leader in Howard losing his seat. Now you must have gone to the same school… Read more »

Your such a fucking genius having a go at everybody,
So I’m wrong,
So instead of being an obnoxious fucking pratt ,why don’t you use that massive intellect you tell everybody you possess and explain why I am wrong 180 degrees.

I do not mind being wrong, provided somebody intelligently and possibly politely, (which may pose a severe problem for you) explains to me logically,
why I am wrong.

Well,I can assure you if it was the Liberal party that has fucked this country almost beyond repair for our grand children and probably our great grand children, I would be as openly critical of them as I am of the ALP. Its funny you know, so many people have told you to fuck off ……yet no one except you has ever called me “A fuckwit apologist”………Well you know one does not have to apologise for those who are trying to actually make the country run better.

I was of the impression that posters on this site were pro LNP. Doesn’t appear to be that way at times. Lets think of a swinging voter who is undecided of which way to vote and decides to do some research and comes across this site and has a read of what has been posted. This person would more than likely disappear within half a page because of the rantings of a certain member answering herself with her other aliases and posting other sites posts continually.

If you do leave this site, by best to you. I have enjoyed your wise musings and same goes for others who seem fed up and ready to leave. I haven’t made a decision yet because I hate being told I should leave by someone like Ralphking. I am obviously naive because I only started to realize that there was a concerted and planned attack going on when dogs appeared everywhere and a hell of a lot of blue. To all those who are leaving let’s hope like mad that Tony can win. After all wasn’t that what this site… Read more »

It would be real shame to see the free exchange of views on this site taken away from us because of the intemperate posts of a very few.

On another site that I have followed for some years now, a group from the Left, by posting ad hominum attacks such as we’re seeing here, successfully (and repeatedly) managed to get threads closed down, thus shutting down debate on topics that were uncomfortable for those of their political leanings.

Could we be seeing something similar here?

Two polls now showing a 50/50 score in 2PP. I was called by Labor Party pollsters a couple of weeks ago (immediately before Julia Gillard’s demise) and lied outrageously in every answer I gave them. (The last thing I wanted to do was assist them in coming to a sensible decision about the issue of the day, which was ditching JEG.) I can only hope there are many others out there giving Labor a false sense of security with their answers to the current polls, for if these polls are accurate, I despair for my country and the IQ of… Read more »

I very rarely comment, in fact, just a watcher and learner, but lately there is nothing constructive to learn or implement in your daily life, except, hate, vulgarity, vindictiveness and comments too long and arduous to read.
This site with Larry proposing the subject for discussion is not what it used to be, it has been highjacked.
it’s such a shame.

Oh, and also the ones about those bad bad baby killers who seem to be in plenty on this site, and you are great bcause you can spot them just from their ‘silly’ words when they try to hide behind comments which are about Larrys topic. But we know dont we? We know they are reely abortonists, and Unholly Devil Worshipers. Keep up the clever tactics. I love them, and yeh. stuff them all. Im up for you too,… Read more »
