Tony Abbott is a terrible PM.

And after (probably) losing the election in Queensland, and a huge swing in the one in SA, Liberals have worked it out too.

QUESTIONS:

1. Do you think Tony Abbott will be PM going into the 2016 election.

2. Should Bill Shorten just shut up and let Tony Abbott lose his own job.

3. Would you vote Liberal?

4. Is Aussie politics permanently fucked up?

Real questions in Australian politics:
1) Why is New Zealand better than Australia?
2) Why does every animal want to kill you?
3) Who gives a shit?

you know, there's an interesting relation between thomas' questions 2 and 4... if tony abbott were somehow to stay until 2016, bill shorten getting elected on the basis of his *not* being tony abbott would be a disaster.

and as for why anyone would give a shit about australian politics? assuming clement attlee to be a brit, one major reason of why he, personally, should give a shit is cos the politics of anglo countries influence each other... for instance, with tony abbott, a major component of his profound fucked-upped-edness is the influence that the ideas of canadian prime minister stephen harper and his 'calgary school' way of thinking has upon abbott. but to bring it back to relevance to clement attlee, australian politics could be argued to have had a profound impact upon british society... for a good long while, australia and new zealand in effect served as an anglophile 'social laboratory', testing out ideas of how greater social egality could be functionably effected within a society.

clement attlee, if it weren't for australia, then it's quite probable that the *real* clement attlee, aka lord attlee, british prime minister from 1945 to 1951, would not have had a credible basis for doing things in britain like cementing in place the nhs or effecting the groundwork for social welfare within britain, and britain would still be looking like a charles dickens novel.

this is why you, clement attlee, should give a shit about australian politics.

as for why new zealand is better than australia, the reasons are manifold....

First of all this thread is about the Australian politics of today, not the history of Australian politics. I'm well aware of the contribution Australia made to World War Two 7 decades ago. What I said was intended as a joke. I'm sorry if you're offended, but please don't take that seriously.

Somebody could ask then: who cares about the UK?

Yes, of course you could. It's called freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

To be honest, I've never been to Australia or New Zealand. It was just meant as a silly joke.

If he's so bad, maybe Tony Abbott should spend his time in a monastery, not in the government?
