I vote Julia will be throw out by her party within 2 months.
The Labour Powerbrokers know she is un-electable, but what's the alternative? Rudd, Combet, Swan, Smith? Will be interesting to see.

A comment I read the other day posted on Facebook:

"So now the Labour Government is considering a Flood Tax, and this is after the Bush Fire Tax, which I suppose goes with the Carbon Tax....May be we should also look at a stupidity Tax for anyone voting Labour at the next election."

Hell no and never will, they treat the defence force as their personal ATM every time they come to power, not to mention the state they leave the economy in once their term is up which takes the liberals many years to bring back to a surplus.

I vote labour, their far from perfect but lets be honest the liberals would have blue collar workers on the cusp of poverty. Guys I worked with had their wages halved by work choices, its unaustralian not to be able to earn a fair wage for a fair days work.

Lets not forget there is a global recession our economy would be fucked and in defecit no matter who was in charge.

A choice between a backstabbing Ranga and a Big Eared muppet, democracy as its finest. I cannot stand the sight or sound of Gillard, but on the same token a wart would be preferable to Abbot as a pm, what choice do we have. We got a hung parliament last time cos no one wanted either, we just going to end up with one once again at this rate. If either one of them gave up the leadership the other would have no chance.

Liberal party gets in power.... Delivers conservative policies... Grows balance sheet and builds a surplus...

After a while people get bored with conservative old fuddy duddy approach and head towards the bright sparkly lights of labors spending policies...

Labor spends up big splashing out the cash.... When its all gone people realise the error of their ways and return to the perceived safety of conservative policies...

Rinse and repeat....

Mean while we now have a million and one asylum seekers flooding our shores...

nazzy don't think its going to happen as the only ones supporting the quarantining of farming land from mining/CSG are the greens, may see them pick up some support ?

Are you near the area in Liverpool thats going to have the csg wells ?
Going to be interesting in Campbelltown as some wells are going to be quite close to the "cbd".
Might be enough to cause the libs to lose a seat or two in western Sydney

good level of policy debate here. I think the libs will get over the line gauging from the media climate and the average jo's opinion.

God knows what policy they'll implement for the most part (literally) but they'll certainly have an easier time than labor has trying to negotiate things through a hung parliament.

either way I imagine there will be repeated record low levels of voting for the big 2.

They need to get rid of Rudd. Everything he does is a game at the moment and he is just simply divisive.

At the end of the day both major parties are full of crooks. But in my opinion, as a swing voter, the Labor party at the moment has less crooks and hidden agendas than the Liberal bananas.

Abbott is basically a chess piece owned by Rupert Murdoch (the media isnt even hiding their bias at the moment) the Catholic Church wallys and the rich miners. Does he have any policies that arent completely ridiculous? My theory is that Rudd is ensuring that Gillard burns and Abbott gets in power, because when Abbott does he wont last long. Then Rudd will put his hand up and get his revenge against Gillard and Abbott wont be much of a hurdle because he is so irrelevant.

Australia to keep progressing either needs Gillard's Union Party to continue or for the Catholic Mining Party (LNP) to remove Abbott and get in Turnbull. Turnbull as PM would be best case scenario, as long as he does a backflip on the NBN.

Like that line in Argo, the Labor Party is the best worst idea we have at the moment. But just my opinion obviously.

Correction on the above post first line: They need to get rid of whole labor party.

The Government is just there to set a framework of legislation and policies. As far as I am aware, in difficult circumstances, these Labor monkeys have passed over 400 bits of new legislation. I read the other day that as far as getting the job done, this Gov. will go down as one of the best in our history (small seat advantage, GFC etc). Not my words and you have to recognise the blunders they have made as well, but they have done the job.

Could you imagine the Liberals standing up to those retched fucking religoius pieces of shit kiddy fiddlers. I can't, cause they are in bed with them. Under Abbott and those other talentless bananas in Bishop, Pyne, Andrews etc, we will be back in the Stone Age. No discussions about the original NBN, Abortion, euthanasia, the media etc.

If they get in Turnbull, different story. He isnt as beholden to Fairfax and Rinehart and co. He is a bit more of a real Human being.

Agreed, and it is scary. Im just hoping Gillard makes some sort of a comeback that gives the coalition a reason to oust Abbott.

But unfortunately 95% of people vote for either their favourite personality or whatever the media feeds them. At the moment Gillard is losing the personality stakes (just, Abbott is just as fake if not worse) and the media is so bias to the LNP it is almost criminal. So they may not have a reason to get rid of Abbott.

The reason a turnip could beat the ALP is because there is no focus on how completely inept the alternative is. They have no policies and one of the most ridiculous front benches I have seen in politics. Actually the only policy I have seen so far is them boasting about cutting jobs.

Believe me if I had a reason to vote for the LNP then I would.

They plan to ditch the NBN for a scaled down version that the UK currently has. The UK says it was the worse mistake they ever made and are about to spend a lot of money converting it to what the NBN currently looks like now. Abbott has no vision.

The problem with politics is that nearly all the people involved know nothing about the real world. How many from either side have ever run a small business or a large one? How many have ever had a job in a real business.

They are all half educated lawyers or union officials, neither is good grounding to be in charge of decisions concerning the real world.

The democratic system is very comfortable to live under but it isn't very productive. A dictatorship can be very productive but not that comfortable to live under. We will never get it right on a scale as large as a national economy.

Julia Gillard loses significant support among caucus

The ABC understands Prime Minister Julia Gillard has lost significant support in the Labor caucus.

It comes after a week in which Labor disunity was on full display in Canberra and former prime minister Kevin Rudd re-emerged very publicly.

ABC Insiders presenter Barrie Cassidy says Mr Rudd is the only figure being considered as an alternative prime minister.

Mr Cassidy spoke about the tensions within the party on Insiders yesterday.

"I am now very strongly of the view that Julia Gillard will not lead Labor into the next election," he said.

"I think there will be a change either by her own hand or the actions of others. And I'm not relying entirely on guesswork here."

He is a divisive egomaniac that wanted revenge. There is less choice for a good PM than there was before. Julia did a good job, brought in a lot of positive reforms, but she simply wasn't popular because she wasn't good at advertising the things they had acheived and the opposition and media were very good at advertising when they failed.

So now we have Krudd or Ah-Ah Tony Ah-ah Abbott, a staunch religious nut and a homophobe rascist without any policies and probably without a brain. I wont be voting.

Give Foreign Aid in Australian produce. Instead of cash, use Aussie produce, ie beef, vegetables, wheat etc. Then the money stays in Australia. Once we give the money, its gone, but this way, Australian farmers/workers benefit. That's a no-brainer in my opinion...

Anyone who can use higher bandwidth services

If it ever gets finished it means the bandwidth is available for things like

home health services - preventative monitoring services in realtime

education - lectures on demand and living streaming - already available but can be very annoying to use due to drop puts etc

Work with large files at home and be able to send/recieve them as required
cad/video etc at the moment its still faster to send a hard drive/ssd.

Easier to contract for work as a cad drafter or design engineer as you can do it from home.


With 3d printers plastic (abs and pla) , ceramic/some alloys (print powder or slurry then sinter - just download the design then print it out.
Still not cost effective or cheap for most things but costs are slowly coming down. Cost effective and great/incredibly useful for prototypes.

Some mining companies are already attempting to use remotely operated equipment, NBN means the operators can be further away where ever the wages are the least.

Biggest one for most people will be on demand hd video services

Problem is if the NBN gets cancelled country areas will get screwed the most
and we'll end up paying a lot more for worse services.

As someone that works for a company with a few offices and am routinely at sites that operate from remote servers it would make a huge difference to the efficency of the business.

I think Australia has more to worry about than fast Internet

sure do

health , education, roads, railways , public transport, water ,protecting good farmland from mining , food and water security(France and French companies own at least 5% of Australia's water supply)

Most of the future health and education systems are depending on the nbn being available so no NBN and the health and education costs blow out by a lot
(at least 5 to 10x the cost of the NBN as they'll need to build their own networks in each state)

optics may be "old school" but a passive optical network like NBN can be easily upgraded by swapping the boxes at either end of the connection.
Equipment is already available to upgrade the 1Gb to 10Gb or 100Gb

Problem with the wifi/mobile LTE etc is there aren't enough available frequencies for them to use to keep increasing the speeds - there is enough for them to double current max speeds but that will decrease the range to 1/4(inverse square law)

e.g 802.11ac/ad wifi can deliver 1.2 Tb (around 100GB a second) but only to range of about 30m and one device (drops to around 400Mb for multiple devices) but there is no way to deliver the data to base stations without the NBN

For me i am basing it off the business i work for. Since my position here is to govern everything IT related for a staff of 400 and we are opening a new facility on the other side of town, we have to add about 200 more staff to there, i need a reliable connection between the two sites and the NBN is the best choice by a country mile.

Not only because it is fast (i need to run multiple database applications over it, nightly backups and terminal service desktops) but it will be damn cheap, allowing the bosses to put more money into other things.

What if i didnt have the NBN? I would need a telstra connection that would cost at least $4k a month Vs NBNs 150 dollars a month.

And then there is everything else we can do with it too:
- VoIP, connecting to a SIP and charge to residents
- our Nuse call system to monitor and record all nurse call alerts
- Offside backups
- Streaming pay TV
- Streaming security camera footage

Can't do anything like that on anything near the cost of the NBN.

Liberal doesn't even seem to be liberal anymore. I thought they were against handouts but their new maternity leave is the biggest handout I've ever seen....

For a working couple (say 2 lawyers) together earning $300k/year (or more) that's an instant $75,000 in the bank for them if they decide to have a kid (from the government).

I guess we can expect a pretty big number of kids will be conceived on Sunday 6th September 2013. Abbot Boomers....

Ironic really, it was Howard that introduced the plasma bonus back in 2003, then Labor scrapped it earlier this year only for Abbott to try and re-introduce it 25 times bigger

I think Rudd has conceded.

Rudd says labor got lots wrong in govt

http://www.skynews.com.au/elements/img/article/638x359/skynews_903915.jpg

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has refused to say whether Labor's electoral hopes would be different had he been at the helm for the past three years.

'One of things in political life, and like life in general, is that it should never be a case of would of, could of, should of,' he told the Seven Network on Saturday.

'You work with what you have got.'

Mr Rudd conceded that Labor had got 'stacks of things wrong' in government.

'Name me one government over the years which hasn't got things wrong,' he said.

'(Former coalition prime minister John Howard) took us to war in Iraq based on the assumption there were weapons of mass destruction.'

But he said Labor had prevailed on the on the 'big calls', such as protecting Australia from the worst of the global financial crisis and implementing the national disability scheme.

Mr Rudd has called on everyone to get out 'exercise their electoral privilege', adding a million people failed to vote last election.

He's expected to vote around midday (AEST).

Mr Rudd sent an 11th hour reminder out to voters that Labor wasn't the only political party that had been plagued by internal divisions over the past six years.

He played down a question on whether his leadership struggle with Julia Gillard had hindered his chances of re-election, saying all parties went through internal challenges from time to time.

'In the last six years (the coalition) has had (John) Howard as leader, (Brendan) Nelson as leader, who was then removed by (Malcolm) Turnbull, who was then removed by (Tony) Abbott,' he told the Nine Network.

'So let's not just pretend that internal political challenges exist on one side of politics.'

not everyone in WA is rich...



so.. what scams, I mean schemes can we use to get ahead under out new overlords??
apart from not working in a school or public service.. popping out kids after employing your wife at 150K for a year... shooting refugees... :D
sucks to be a shareholder now... I suppose it's only a few % more tax to cover the rugrats scheme

So you have brought up the maternity payment thing a few times.

I would much rather encourage higher paid most likely higher educated women to start breeding that the previous baby bonus which just got dole bludging families spitting out little future dole bludgers.

I don't disagree with your sentiments, but not "at any cost"

it is a boon for guys who can rearrange their tax affairs to pay their wives to be $150K secretaries for a year before they pop out kids :D


do you think it is fair to cancel the "family tax benefit" for millions, in order to pay a huge bonus to less than 100,000 people?
I don't care about the small previous baby bonus, but removing family tax benefits is pretty wide reaching...

quite a few companies already attract female employees by offering maternity leave schemes as good or better than what the new government is offering...

anyway, will be interesting to see what it does to baby popping statistics, and if it does cost $5 billion per year :)
be good to see social stats and if it does encourage wealthy women to have kids more often than they do now.

Well nothing at any cost is a good idea obviously.

If you can rig the system legally to help yourself you would be stupid not to. If you are in the position to do it you obviously pay taxes, its nice to get some back sometimes. What annoys me much more is the lazy dole bludgers that cry poor and never have any intention of working.

And I agree. Despite all the carry on on here the change of government means fuck all to most people in the long run. I do find it funny you talk about trying to find a job with the new government. When I can never remember a time with so many job losses and people out of work with this labor government.

i'm at the peak of my tax paying career :D too little to rig the system, too much to make it worth working less LOL

in specific industries yeah, but I remember back in 80's and 90's that there were job losses, and also stupidly high interest rates.. (17% on home loans!!!)
5-6% unemployment (with the numbers both sides rig to include partial employment) is no that bad...

but yeah, my industry has no support from liberals, and emissions direct action penalties will really hurt us. I just hope we survive so I don't have to go OS for work :D

or.. go to tafe and become a tradie :D they all seem to have flashy cars, and shitloads of toys to help write off tax :D


Nice ute, big 'home office', all the toys, nice shiny bolt ons on the mrs & not a fucking cent to their names. Welcome to the gold coast.

I know a couple of truly wealthy tradies and its funny they get around in couple year old hiluxes and dress barely better then bums, always cry about how much money their losing.

Yeah he is good at what he does and he acknowledges himself it won't last like this.

Alot of people are to short sighted to realise all booms end and when your earning like that you should save not fucking blow it all.

People blame the fucked economy on the labor govt but there is alot of other factors at play as well.
