My votes for the 2016 federal election

Submitted by Rick Eyre on July 1, 2016 - 5:16am

Nationally, I am endorsing the removal of the Liberal/National government of Malcolm Turnbull. I am supporting a government led by the Australian Labor Party with Bill Shorten as Prime Minister.

I also support a significant presence of competent minor parties in the Senate, particularly the Greens, to act as a robust House of Review and to give strong guidance to the government in policy direction.

Malcolm Turnbull's done the PM thing, so what now?

We're now at the end of week three of the eight-week federal election campaign, and all the body language I see from Turnbull is the same as he has displayed for the last few months beforehand: He looks bored with the Prime Ministership. That "ok I've done this Prime Minister thing, what's next?" languidness.

Greg Hunt's Christmas giveaways

Whilst doing a totally unrelated search of my Twitter archive today, I found these two gems from consecutive Christmases 2013 and 2014 about Minister Against The Environment, Greg Hunt. Did I miss something in 2015?


Election time again... the 2016 edition

Here we go again. It may be a couple of months earlier than expected, it may be for twice as much of the Senate as expected, but we're off to another federal election. And, for the third time running, the Prime Minister at this election is not the Prime Minister Australia had at the start of this term.
