The Guardian reports that leading political nincompoop, Christopher Pyne, doesn't intend to be distracted by polls “that come and go”.

It's two and and a half years to the next election (Pyne whinnies), and whether or not the polls are up or down “in February 2017” will be neither “here nor there” in 2019.

So, that's what St. Christopher thinks of us voters, folks. We will have forgotten the appalling antics of Turbull and Co. by 2019.

Some of us might. But those of us who take the welfare of Australia seriously will not; and, we are the 5% who change governments. Pyne doesn't seem to be aware of this, the chump!

Dear ttbn,

You're right predicting anything in politics is
risky at the best of times. Things can change in
a flash. Look at what's happened in the recent
past. Nothing is certain and politicians do have
to listen to the voters - as they should have
learned both in the US and here in this country.
Who could have predicted the wins for President
Trump, or for Pauline Hanson, Jacqui Lambie,
et al. Nothing is locked in concrete - but
one thing is certain - unless the politicians lift
their game - expect the unexpected.

Expect the unexpected. Within two and a half years. We could have another two and a half govt, on its way out.

Foxy, the signs were there loud and clear that a change was in the air so as to speak. Brexit Hanson and Trump were no accidents, they were a sign that the voters had had a gut full of being irnored and i have no doubt that the Oz voters are keeping a real close eye on Trump, because if he makes some serious headway in the next year or so, our voters will be looking for our very own Trump, the likes of Dutton for an example, teaming up with Hanson and perhaps even Lambie.

Lets face it,with the likes of gay marriege being the only real issue up for discussion, which by the way will have little to no effect on the state of our naton, we need someone to bring on real debate on issues like immigration before we can move forward, because very few people care about two queers having the right to marry, but most care about their elderly being cast aside, or their kids jobs going to immigrants rather than their own.

The leftist gravy train sees a bump ahead with the Trump win. Start of a meltdown that will last for years. Too good.

The better question was, 'What rational person would have predicted a Clinton win?'.
