Yes, we do need a general thread for the overglorified carnival act of Govenment Politics that is Aussie Politics.
As to answer Barkey's question. Stephen Conroy (Labour Minister for Communications, Technology & Arts) has been up to his old tricks and tried to issue another act of media regulation
. But pretty much everyone in the entire country think he's all piss and wind and no-one takes him seriously ever and even his own party hates his guts.
Really. I just want our state leaders and politicians to stop treating politics like a playground full of bickering, accusations, finger pointing and name calling and start doing some damn politics
. I don't care about political gossip 101, I wanna see shit done.
Also. People don't seem to get that you don't vote for a single person like you do in America, you vote for a Party
. Way to many people are complaining that they don't like how Julia Gillard acts or sounds and how she shouldn't be PM because she's a "bitch". So
? Who cares if you
don't like her, you don't like a politician, you vote for a party who you think will do the most to please your
particular political faction. So the focus should be on what her party is doing
(Bumfuck all because Aussie politics is at the moment a complete joke)
Gah. The current state of the two major parties just makes me wanna vote for the Australian Sex Party even more.
