  1. I think he has a better chance by doing so. He would take his 54 votes from the LNP and 22 votes from the opposition to get legislation passed. It would neuter the 44 supporters of Abbott.
  2. I came home on Friday afternoon and in my totally unimpressive cross street in my totally unimpressive suburb I have a Chinese guy keeping barely steady on a bicycle circling through the footpaths as he is trying to focus on holding his smartphone level. He got a continuous shot of the street from both sides. My thoughts were that he was getting footage for an overseas buyer.
  3. To remove the logger-headedness of the left and right factions among parties and within parties Turnbull should have come out and said: "Every vote under my leadership will be a conscience vote." It would have thrown off everybody and changed the balance.
  4. It is highly improbable. We know that 44 out of 98 Liberals dislike Turnbull. If those 44 win their seats at the next election then they will limit Turnbull to being a puppet for the same vision the people have come to hate and he will get rolled or lose the follow-up election. If those 44 lose their seats at the next election then Turnbull loses the majority to govern and he will not be PM.
  5. In the same way which the people thought replacing Kevin with Julia will change direction people think changing Tony with somebody else will change direction. It is not the leader but the party (or even the population) that steers this ship.
  6. The Bali Nine conundrum comes to mind.
  7. Sir, you are a smart man.
  8. She plans on making up on it once retired. Let's hope there will be some divine intervention before then.
  9. Part of the problem is that politicians got to be seen doing something so that the people feel they are working in their interest. Politicians can get their job done staying in their office in the same way workers get their job done staying in their cubicle.
  10. It is just scaremongering to get the banks to reverse their actions. People, who buy off-the-plan, pay in cash and are therefore not affected by the tightening of investor credit.
  11. These are times where everything that doesn't make logical sense occurs.
  12. The cost of living is so high in Sydney that all you have left to travel is $2.50. The irony is that if you actually intended to spend the last cent on a ticket you'd have trouble recouping any utility from it as the services are always full. It's more sensible to buy a scratchy instead and use the winnings to hire a helicopter.
  13. I see Gold going to USD 400.00.
  14. I am not the brightest but after six years of waiting for the debt implosion even I realised that there won't be a rout. The system dies without perpetual growth.
  15. I lived for 12 years in Sydney and this suburb must have passed me by in all that time. I had to look at the map to find it. It's as far as you can go from the CBD without leaving Sydney. Once they build the new airport it will be the new "Inner City" and be worth $19M.
