Barnaby or Hanson? : Comments

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.

There is no way that Joyce is the sort of politician that appeals to anyone who might think about voting for Hanson. For starters, he is an apologist for Islam, publically and stupidly saying “you can't say that” when Hanson had already said 'that' – Islam is a disease. On top of his unreliability as a protector against Islam, he is an absolute buffoon, and his old hat party is a thing of the past, belonging to the golden years when wool was a pound a pound, and we still lived on the sheep's back. He is a clown with a big hat, turning up at rodeos – also outdated amusements.

Everald's 'pick' is also suspect in that he thinks that another buffoon, Josh Frydenberg, is capable of taking over from Turbull. Even the drip, SA Premier Jay Whetherill, made that bloke look stupid.

Joyce is the “best politician in Australia”? Please explain, Everald.

You've got to be kidding polpak, people voted for Turnbull, no way.

Some voted foolishly for their liberal candidate, in the hope they would chuck the grinning idiot out on his head. I have never spoken to a single person who actually voted for Turnbull, or wanted him as PM. I do speak to quite a few who would vote for Abbott.

My considered opinion is that many more people voted for Pauline, or Barnaby, than voted for Turnbull.

However I think it is highly unlikely that Barnaby will break from the coalition, I think he has enough on his plate, holding together what he has, more's the pity.

It's nice to daydream.

The place's been ruined. There's no putting it back together. Well not by any member of the existing dominant parties. They're all culpable.
Even Keating admitted recently major policy shifts from his time were a mistake. Too late now though.

A wrecking ball'd get voted in just out of spite right now. It's the only option the poor bloke has to make the arrogant feel the uncertainty.

Hasbeen talks to plenty of people that would vote for Abbott. That is a disgraceful admission. You downgrade all polititions,except Abbott. After what he done, it,s treasonous. He would do Australia best by handing in his resignation, but no he wants to take a whole party with him.
Remember his volly of lies about not being disruptive. He would not know what it's like to tell the truth.

If only ,Everald, if only.

It's an interesting scenario... the end result is a bit wishful in the amount of success.. but.. if only !

As it stands , The Nationals are dead in the water and will disappear from the Australian political landscape within 10 years, so Barnaby is their last , and only, chance.

They can go down fighting or just wither and die on the vine.

"Malcolm Turnbull is in the twilight of his life as Prime Minister and of his political career. He looks like a Prime Minister, has the intelligence to be Prime Minister and tries to act like the Prime Minister, but fails embarrassingly because he lacks political nous."

What a surprising admission from Everald, who -- if I recall correctly -- barracked for Abbott to be knifed in the back by Malcolm.

It is a pity that Everald and others took so long to realise that Malcolm would perform (or rather fail to perform) that way.
