"Australia is powering forward." The wasteful political ads have begun.

ScoMo has to have a bi election for Wentworth or a general election very soon. He'll go for a bi election. The way Turnbull was deposed and the nature of the electorate could lead to a weirdo getting elected. If that happens then he will lack a majority and will need to call a general election. If it all happens he will narrowly avoid being Australia's shortest serving PM.

I think the libs will probably hold Wentworth. It's more than they deserve.

ScoMo's lost a lot of hair. It's common for a high level politician. 

I've seen him preaching. He's gonna have troubles between being a pentecostal christian and doing the most basic things. 

I'm not sure how you wave at Jesus, promise lower taxes, higher benefits, Indian immigrants all at the same time.

Shorten will do him.

Shorten is so 'on the nose' with the electorate that Scomo is already ahead as preferred leader, even after the Libs' internal turmoil.

You'd think he would take a hint and quit.

ScoMo can't win. Shorten can't win.

Shorty will win. It's a race between a douche and turd sandwich. 

ScoMo has lost to Billy in his first poll. It's a bit embarrassing, as newbies tend to get a good read. 

People don't want Humphrey B Bear running the joint.

I'm not convinced that preferred PM is an indicator of electoral success. Turnbull was so close to losing last election even though he was way ahead as preferred PM. A popular PM is a nice to have. Policy should be more important.

Just watched Humphrey's interview on 7.30. Average speaker. Been worse, been better.

He started foaming at the mouth when it came to religious freedom. Make no mistake "religious freedom" according to Morrison is extreme pentecostalism. Death to fags, no abortion, no end of life, etc. Other brands of Christianity will be tolerated, just. Any other form of religion will be legislated out of existence.

Agree

Now politics is a child's game. The number one aim of any party should be who can get us elected and keep us elected. Not so these days. 

Julie Bishop had the best chance of getting the libs a vote. Oh well we'll go for Humphrey.

Anyone but Shorten had the best chance of getting the ALP elected.

Kerryn Phelps, the first female head of the Australian Medical Association, will put civil rights and action on climate change at the forefront of her bid to claim the federal seat of Wentworth as an independent.

“The people of Wentworth are crying out for an authentic voice who will stand up to the major parties and rise above the bitterness and backstabbing that has taken over Canberra," Dr Phelps said in a statement.

She later told reporters in Double Bay that she would not be “a destabilising influence if elected'', a result that would strip the government led by Mr Turnbull's successor Scott Morrison of its one-seat majority.

“My intention is not to block supply,” Dr Phelps said.
