It seems Labor want to get all their tax increases and spending cuts out of the way now so that we'll forget about it later in the year. Carbon tax and NBN are enough reasons for me to not vote Labour.

Oh Gods.  I sincerely think that, given the paucity of all three corners of the current elect

Anyone wanna take bets on the following in this thread:

1) Someone will post the word "Juliar" or some such.
2) Someone else will make a retarded anti-Greens comment.
3) After 1) and 2), bingley hall will say something to rebut it.
4) Someone else will make snide comments about Abbott.
5) TheLoadedDog™ will say something to rebut 4)

Wash. Rinse. Repeat.

For seven frickin' months.  Seven goddamned months of electioneering, pollsters, polls, analysis, ads, advertorials, and frickin' Abbott, Giilard and that Greens lady who TALKS IN CAPITALS WITH NO PUNCTUATION. Oy berluddy vey.

All I can say is that it will be a frickin' miracle if Juliar LaughingLaughingLaughing and the rest of the ALP scum stay in.
I'm predicting a QLD style whitewash with only a few ALP MP's remaining.

Thinking more about the election I think this is a good call by Julia.  The risk to the ALP was Abbott would be dropped as leader and someone who has appeal to the australian public would then be injected as leader.  By announcing an election earlier it is highly unlike near impossible for the Liberals to replace Abbott at this point which means the Libs run with an opposition leader who is less popular than the PM.

Interesting times.

"Errrr no" - Abbott

"Well you were seen leaving his office" - ABC

"Oh, that Cardinal Pell" - Abbott

Jeez, and I thought BDA would have been first with the 'Juliar' pejorative!

Dream on. Libs will more than likely win but I doubt it will be the whitewash you so earnestly desire.
