"The Reserve Bankís interest rate decision didnít even over-excite the Treasury debate, let alone dominate the campaign trail yesterday. Barbs were exchanged about cost of living, and the PM called on banks to pass on the rise to savings as well as mortgages, but the caravan simply moved on". (A Terry Barnes observation).

The people most affected will be those who took out "liar loans" - understating their expenses to get a bigger mortgage. How stupid can people (a surprisingly high number) be!

Albanese is an accident just waiting to happen.
Just his campaign shows enuff incompetence that we should know what to expect.
If we vote this guy in, then we deserve everything we get.

If you can't support Scomo, and there's a few reasons to think he's let us down;
- Then the smart vote should be none of the above.
Or, the only choice is independents with Majors last.

Democracy's really on its last legs if this is the best we can do.
What happens when change is only for the sake of change,
- But the change we can expect is not going to be for the better?
What are our options?

Here's a few thoughts I wrote on another thread:

How will you vote
Re-elect Morrison so he can gloat?
Or make it easy with Albanese?
Or is Pauline Hanson in with a chance?
Perhaps Big Spender Palmer can lead the dance?

The outspoken Greens are climate aware
Concerned Independents really do care
Whoever we support will find
It's going to be a bumpy ride

Again, I find myself in full agreement with TTBN. This gentleman seems to have both, his ear to the ground (being the pragmatist he is) and bucket loads of 'C D F' as we used to say in the CIB whenever we spoke of the absence or otherwise of commonsense. And his commentary today is no exception to his usual pragmatic approach.

INDIVIDUAL is another contributor embrued with an abundance of CDF 'Common Dog F...' as evidenced by the thoughtfulness of many of his articles.

There are many such folk on here who exhibit pragmatism, usually those who've had to be industrious and frugal with what they've earned for most of their adult lives. And for whatever reason, chose careers that didn't include a few years at Uni. You know the type of men and women to whom I refer?

Some even go so far as to say, it's many of these types of people, who helped build this great nation despite several world wars and a crippling depression.

And I suspect it's people of my generation and perhaps later, who appear to be dragging this once proud nation asunder?
