It's Over?

Bernardi wimps out again!

South Australian Senator Cory Bernardi clearly has no interest in Australian Conservatives winning enough seats to form a government in South Australia... or anywhere else, it seems.

Happy New Year!

From everyone here to everyone there... Have a great 2018!

So why are there so many political Parties?

Election Day in Queensland

According to opinion polls, almost 70% of voters do not want Tim Nicholls, the leader of Queensland's Liberal National Party opposition, to become premier today.  On the other hand, almost as many do not want Anna Palaszczuk returned as Premier.  Seemingly, One Nation is set to win a swag of seats…
