I watched "Q&A" on Monday (11/06/2018) evening
with Bill Shorten answering questions from the
audience. It proved to be interesting - and some very
tough questions. Mr Shorten answered all of them.

Tony Jones the host told us that Mr Turnbull had
also been invited to be a future guest. It will be
interesting to see if Mr Turnbull will agree to it.
And turn up as the sole guest facing the audience.

I would find it even more interesting
- if all the representatives of the various parties
would appear on the panel together - Mr Shorten, Mr Turnbull,
Dr Di Natali, Pauline Hanson, and perhaps - Jacqui Lambie
representing the Independents.

Watching "Q&A" on Monday evening - it occurred to me -
that when we apply for certain jobs - we have to list
our qualifications and experience. What qualifications
should we expect our party leaders and possible leaders
of our country to have?

In other words -
what qualifications are important to you - that a leader
should have?

Your thoughts please?

Turnbull and Shorten could learn heaps from President Trump. He has actually done much of what he promised. A long time since any pollie has achieved so much in such a short period of time. He certainly puts America first. What a breath of fresh air.

runner,

You haven't told us what qualifications should a leader
have. Can you list some please? What is it about
Mr Trump that you admire so much?

Hi Foxy Trump tore up the Paris agreement He has acted on illegal immigration He has overseen the lowest African American unemployment ever He calls out the hypocrisy of the media He has learned from Englands total failure re Islamic Immigration Would you like me to continue. With all his flaws he has much more character and courage than Shorten and Turnbull put together.

runner,

Thank You for bothering to reply again.

I get the picture - and it is appreciated.

When you've got the time - could you tell us
what qualifications should our country's future
leader have?

runner,

I meant to add - that to me a leader must have
the skills to build a program of policies
linked to party values while appearing to the
widest possible section of the electorate.

I would prefer someone with ministerial experience.
Good communication skills are a must because leaders
have to find a way to convey what they stand for.
Must be a decent speaker and an engaging interviewee.

More later.
