That it did....we may be seeing an early vote.


State Governments have a fixed four year term. They can’t call an early election.

I suspect it’s easier to stop publishing the books than it is to get Dr Seuss to redo the illustrations. He hasn’t done much drawing for the past two decades, after all...

You do realise that: 1. The school didn’t create the sign 2. The school likely would have taken it down had they known. Did you bring it to their attention? 3.

So the fence of my local public school had an ad for a charity that said "Australians need your help to". (Instead of Australians need your help too). This gave me the shits. What the hell kind of "education" system would allow such a blatent grammatical error to be displayed on...

Also, I've heard of rumours surrounding the NSW bushfire recovery grants. Apparently non-Coalition seats only saw $2.5 million out of $170 million or so in recovery grants - one of those being the Blue Mountains, one of the hardest-hit areas, being a Labor seat. Not sure why that's going on. John B...

You don’t feel that the adoption of Australia’s constitution, the highest law of the land and literally the document that defines Australia as a country, is important enough for a national holiday?

My biggest complaint with the idea of changing the date is that there aren't any other days significant enough, in my opinion, to change it to. January 1 - Federation March 3 - the passing of the Australia Act, which gave Australia political independence from Britain May 9 - the opening of federal ...

What do you guys make of the change the date (of Australia Day) debate? If you ask me, it's just window dressing.

Ridiculous. Changing the anthem of a country is basically collapsing the country. A national anthem should never change as it belongs to the traditions, culture and history to the country So did Australia collapse in 1984 when the anthem was changed from God Save the Queen to Advance Australia Fair?

For me, it's a tie between Joh-Bjelke Petersen, Fraser Anning, Pauline and *no surprises* Clive.


Everyone you listed is bad, but Fraser Anning was in a class of his own. That he was ejected from KAP for being too extreme says it all.

P.S. why is there only...1 seat for the whole Northern Territory? Because electoral boundaries are based on population size, with each electorate having as close to the same number of people living it in as possible.
