Hmmmmmmmm I had thought that Mr Shorten would have a limited shelf life but now I'm not so sure.

 

In spite of his popularity beginning to fall away, the truth is that the possible replacements are if anything even less credible.

 

What a way to longevity - surround yourself with those less credible than yourself!

 

The cost, and there is always a cost, is that electoral support will continue to slide.

 

Clearly the Government is quite happy to have Bill there!

Aloy, the whole point of making a post on a forum is to try and get as many people as possible to agree with you and like the post lol

But mon ami a little spirited discussion is a good thing - if we all agree what's to discuss?

 

The point is not to agree but to express an opinion!

Speaking about Electricity Bill.
We received a notice saying "Due to the fact the carbon tax is no more, we shall get reductions in both electricity and gas".
Gotta love that carbon Tax!

In a way the government (this and the previous) is doing hidden macro policy work - artificially raising inflation index. Without the carbon tax, we would not have a ~3% CPI now.. And with it being repealed there is a certain risk of prices falling (thereby "forcing" the RBA to lower rates even further)...

 

Why with the carbon tax gone, the fuel excise has to take it's place (and why Jokey has a hard time selling this new tax because he has to make up excuses on how capitalism is not a good economics model when the whole world is in a funk)...

You went skinny-fishing? I hope you didn't bait the hook with the wrong worm.

We did not do crop circles until either solstice!
Then someone invented "years" which were twice as long as any solstice and so we decided to cut the work rate in half!
That's why it is harder to find crop circles these days.

Oh no, not Mello - he's no grafitti exponent unless you include forums as caves - come to think of it .............................

 

 

Remember the playground when you had a big blue with someone and then forever after you were mates?
