Given the demographics it's almost impossible for Conservatives to win ACT....looks like they are concentrating their efforts on QLD.

And if Scumbo doesn't get the LNP over the line....?

So far

Pre-pandemic

SA lib

Post-pandemic 

NT Labor

ACT labor 

NSW likely to go to the polls. If only the ALP had waited a few weeks for more revelations. The Murdoch's still supporting the Armenian dictactress.

Both NT and ACT were sitting Labor governments that re-elected. Which is generally an easier task than winning an election from opposition. Plus the NSW opposition leader is almost completely unseen and therefore relatively ineffective.

Why would NSW go to the polls when there is still at least 3 years left of the current term?

This one is a story with legs. It's going unveil another uncomfortable truth for Scumbo. That is his mates in business are morally bankrupt and possibly have committed criminal acts of the white collar type.

What a brilliant and responsible use of taxpayer's money this nonsense was!

Yep...far better and more responsible economic managers, the Libs...lol.

Tony Abbott spent $135,000 on medals for knights and dames in 2014. They're now 'worthless'

Its really getting a lot of traction. You can tell a lot of people aren't happy the way things are. As football fans man do we know media bias

So true.

KRudd is certainly hitting the airwaves with it.

This is a bit long winded...but Jordan Shanks is reaching a youthful demographic with his....cheeky... style, and is rather infatuated with Rudd. Lol.

Parts of this are interesting tho e.g. Murdoch's tentacles don't reach as far as WA (well, not for local and state based papers, whereas there are only/almost only Murdoch rags available in Qld).

It no longer really matters.

I genuinely believe that this staffer could have said as much and it would make no ******* difference - she'd stay, approval wouldn't budge. Nobody gives a **** any more.

Sad thing isn’t it

Even watching the US presidential debate today, so sad that around half the populace there actually think Trump is doing great.

NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian's documents approving of council grants were shredded by her office
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-10-23/gladys-berejiklian-approval-of-council-grants-shredded/12806962

And your surprised why? lol

You don't think Glady's has spent much time over the last month or two also shredding documents and cleaning hard drives :D

She is burning through her political credit bank daily...still enough left though...
