By Everald Compton, published 21/4/2017

The Angry Vote is growing throughout Australia and is doing so at an ever increasing pace as voters grow more and more disenchanted.

We are engaging in environmental destruction which is destroying our economic base, our biological base and our planet. For this to be the chief concern of any political party makes that party a vehicle for facing an issue that is important to all of us. The author dismisses this as a narrow ideology when he refers to the Greens. Is it facing the issues for Turnbull to give a billion dollars to Adani so the pace of destruction can be speeded up? Barnaby Joyce will not be our Saviour.

david f The greens are driving our environmental and socioeconomic destruction. They've destroyed sensible fire management and replaced it with paramilitary fire fighting organisations that cost billions and are consistently rewarded for failure. Two hundred people have died and countless wildlife and domestic stock have perished since COAG greenwashed Gary Nairn's sensible report on the 2003 fires. Greens stopped the only reliable sustainable renewable energy in hydro. They stopped the only sustainable resource industry in forestry. They've destroyed rural towns and industries as well as our cultural heritage of the The Man from Snowy River, without even a democratic process, just relying on sleazy preference deals for inner city electorates. Joh's alleged gerrymander was honest and transparent by comparison - giving real stakeholders a say. Barnaby Joyce pulling this off would be the only way things could ever be fair and honest again.

I'd like to see Barnaby try this, but I really don't think he's smart enough!

if the angry vote is for Hanson then why is it the anti Trump, socialist and Greens always demostrate with such violence, ignorance and spite. The regressives reverse language and the truth.

Does Everald Compton believe all management boards be totally dominated by their Chairman ?

"The Angry Vote is growing throughout Australia and is doing so at an ever increasing pace as voters grow more and more disenchanted with a political establishment which is so appallingly out of touch with the aspirations of voters."

Easy to agree with this, for different reason.

To suggest solution is either Barnaby or Hanson IMHO demonstrates failure to understand actual problem.

Every elected Member is responsible first to our nation, then their electorate, then to their party.

New leaders will not resolve problem, over-concentrating focus on leaders is the problem.

Leaders appear for a time to work in totalitarian states, yet our voters seek NOT totalitarian government, nor totalitarian listed company management.

Leadership is not about control of everything, such expands the problems.

Corporate and democratic leaders need be negotiators, prepared work with others to achieve shared goals, through general agreements, accepting goals may take longer.

This is democracy.

IMHO voters support Malcolm Turnbull as he promotes an older style of government - Cabinet with Ministerial Responsibility.

Malcolm Turnbull expects Ministers demonstrate their Responsibility over their portfolios, with Cabinet Responsibility, and Parliamentary accountability.

Perhaps some lack understanding of Cabinet Responsibility or reject it.

Our Constitution requires Ministers be Members of the Parliament to ensure they remain Responsible and Accountable, to Parliament thus to our wider community.


Our Prime Minister is Chairman of the Board, one vote of many, not dictator.

Government requires each House of Parliament separately approve each legislative change, this requires co-operation, negotiation, reaching agreement, even when only part of what sort.

Did Australians vote for a dictator, for totalitarianism ?
