ttbn, why don't you do something "new and constructive" and start an 'Anti-Muslim' thread. What a miserable person you are, full of hateful bile.

Runner, why don't you change religions and become a "Christian". the one you're in now has no compassion, no love for others, just based on hate. What is it? What ever it is, frankly it stinks.

Even the crazy right faction, within the Liberal Party, the dreaded 'Uglies' realized Abbott was taking them in the direction of political oblivion. So for no other reason than self preservation they opted for Turnballs!

I have had little time for Abbott but even less for Turnbull.

Turnbull was a dud when he was leader of the Republicans and when he was Opposition leader. I just cannot believe the Libs could not find some one else if they felt Abbott was not suitable. Turnbull is a complete waste of time and space.

After the debacle of the last Labor government I thought it would be decades before we got another one, but it now seems certain that Labor will be back. Poor fella my country!

Glad I will not have to endure it for too much longer.

Dear Foxy

Itís funny you should ask, because I realised I should have mentioned Bernardi after I posted my last comment, even if heís no longer a member of the Liberal party. I think Bernadiís departure is a good thing for the Coalition, and is yet another sign of their slow and necessary shift to the centre.

You wouldnít think so reading the unrepresentatively-conservative comments on OLO (from a disproportionately-retired-male readership), but I donít think the old flavour of conservatism, that the Liberal party members weíve listed represent, is ever going to win elections anymore. Each successive generation seems to be more progressive than the last.

Sure, fringe parties like One Nation get a short-lived injection from a disgruntled few from time to time, but eventually they collapse under their own vacuousness and lack of meaningful purpose. Even the presidency of Trump (a 'fringe' character leading a major political party) is slowly collapsing around him.

I had a lot more to say but ended up deleting it. I'm a little too busy at the moment to poke a hornet's nest, unfortunately.

What are your thoughts?

--

ttbn,

So, if someone else wants the Liberal leadership, then thatís all that will be required to oust Turnbull? I donít think so. Your logic is flawed.

Dear AJ,

I've come across an interesting article on why right wing
politics is fracturing in Australia that I think you
might find of interest:

Hi Foxy, we probably get a distorted view of conservative politics on the forum.It appears most of the contributors from that side of the fence are out of touch crusty old conservative fellas, or out and out Hansonites, no matter whatever they are, they are out of touch with the majority of Australians, although they like to think they represent the views of the majority all of the time. As a Green, and I don't claim to represent the majority opinion on all issues, I have more in common with younger progressive Liberal Party members, than, say conservative Labor people, and certainly nothing in common with that crusty mob of regressives and Hansonites on here. But it makes for interesting debate at times.

Dear Paul,

I fully agree with you.

I love OLO, challenging as it is at times.

I'm still continuing to learn from it.
