    Still playing the man, never the issue. Typical watermelon behaviour. Not enough capacity to argue an issue, so attack the man. You'll never win one that way.

    Well well, is that all they've got?
    "The labour Party under Bill Shorten is the most left wing Labour Party in generations"
    They'll call them Communists next! Reads like a Peter Sellars script.
    Risible, and desperation at work.

    I can think of much that is wrong with Labour but the pot with a burnt out bottom calling a singed kettle black?

    Probably because the Tele or the Oz have it as a headline? Or they are providing one.

    Your mob won't commit to it. Labor is considered likely to block an extension of the welfare card, along with the scumbag Greens. They are the parties of deaths at sea, bashings and violence.

    And as for BOTH majors, attempting the feat of riding 2 different horses in two different directions: whilst desperately touting the strength of the US alliance, they have been bought by a 'shadowy Chinese government front organisation' to the tune of $6 million.
    And I quote a Murdoch tabloid, the Melb. Herald Sun.

    By the way Ian, I personally support the welfare card in communities were the women of that town want it. They're the ones who feed the kids, the blokes do the gambling and most of the drinking. But only if requested.

    I worked on a community for DAIA and it was the women who were there sane ones, not all but most. At Aurukun it was the women who agitated for a ''dry community'', not the men, so my post above was based on personal experience. It may not reflect your experience but it does reflect mine.

    I'm not going to post details online but if we see each other I'm happy to expand on the story.

    None of which lessens the misogyny and out of touch nature of your comment. You might care to read the Quadrant article I linked a day or two ago. It might give you some depth of experience.

    Meanwhile Labor has admitted liability for the high gas prices.

    Just for Jeff... because he likes the work to be done for him, here's a piece from Uncle Rupert's esteemed publication:

    Malcolm Turnbull has seized on energy spokesman Mark Butler’s admission that Labor was warned that customers would be hit with higher energy prices from the gas exports it authorised in government five years ago, blaming the Gillard government for the spike in gas prices which has seen energy bills rise dramatically.

    Mr Butler last night declared “everyone knew” there would be an impact on prices from the surge in gas shipments overseas, contradicting claims he made in April that there was no advice about the problem.

    The Prime Minister said that if Australians wanted to know why electricity prices had spiked, it was because of the shortage of gas on the east coast, which was caused by Labor failing to protect the domestic market when it allowed exports.


    Mr Turnbull said Labor was warned the exports ran the risk of putting upward pressure on gas prices.

    “Now, they denied that,” he said.

    Labor gas admission




    “Only in April, Mark Butler went on Insidersand he said, ‘Oh, we were given assurances. No, no-one thought it would put prices up.’


    “Well, he was not telling the truth on Insiders, and he has finally had to admit that Labor knew, when they made that decision, that that was going to cause gas prices to rise.”


    Mr Turnbull said the Gillard government had made a “reckless” decision in allowing gas to be exported from the east coast of Australia without putting in any protection for Australian families, households and businesses.


    “This is a mess, a shocking mess, that Labor created, one of many in the energy space,” he said.

    “It is due to their complacency, their combination of left-wing ideology and idiocy has led us to one decision after another by Labor that has put upward pressure on prices.”

    Mr Turnbull said his government had limited gas exports to address the problem.


    “Obviously we did that with a heavy heart. We don’t like to limit any exports, we want lots of exports, but we’ve had to take those strong steps to protect Australian jobs,” he said.


    Shadow assistant treasurer Andrew Leigh said Labor had gone to the last election calling for a national interest test for new gas developments, but did not address repeated questions about Labor’s actions in government....

    If political correctness has something to account for it is; journeying down blind alleys in the name of ideology.
    Statistically it is the men who are violent drunks and the women that pick up the pieces. It is also overwhelmingly men who hate the card and women who embrace it.

    Thats not sexist - that is fact.

    Its as if i said most house work in Australia is done by women. Thats not sexist, its a fact.
    And as a fact it tells us something about extant sexism.
