Surprisingly, Palmers advertising was close to Labors in the 35% range, Libs were around 27% from memory, and the minors at 3%.

At least the Alpha won, and not the Beta.

Now the opposition leader is even worse. Already and again using identity politics - cucks never learn.

Yep, mid 50's, been around too many times, split up with his missus - they focus too much on the salesman, rather than looking at the product as well.
One of the commentators said the other day that the next Labor PM isn't in the parliament as yet - pretty correct, I would think.

He’ll be well rewarded. His investment is a drop in the ocean. He effectively owns our government now. That’s what he meant when he kept saying that he will be Australia’s next prime minister. Morrison will need to run everything past Clive from now on.

No coal is being phased out in spite of the election result.

The Libs got 41.6 of the primary vote - and to be in a good position to win, you need at least 40% - which neither party had according to all those polls.
LNP in the QLD State election had it won by more than 10 seats, if they had taken One Nation into coalition as most if not all of One Nation voters were once LNP voters that could just not stomach the LNP anymore.

OK. There are some who don't know, or know where Betoota is, and I have come across them.
If anyone is out that way, they have some historic photos in there, from when it was operating as a pub years ago. Some on display were taken by my father when he worked in the area.

I think QLDers will see through Annastacia Palaszczuk's sudden interest in coal yesterday after years of cold shouldering.

I beleive Clive Palmer got 100% return on the money he invested in a campaign of "dont vote for Shorten".

I am pretty sure that Palmers end game was ALP to lose, not for UAP to win a seat. As I understand polictical donation rules, it nots possible for him to donate 60M to the Liberal Party to help them win the election, but he can spend it on himself, or if thats not entirel correct, by running his own campaign, so he has full control over it to send the message he wanted.

Palmer might be crazy, and not popular, but he aint dumb either.

What, with Australia's 1.3% of mankind's 3% carbon emissions into the atmosphere's 0.04% carbon content? By my calculations, that rounds off to zero.

Clive is a **** no doubt but absolutely he is first in line for favours from the LNP.

Aussies are not sooks in the main so we will move on easily I reckon.

Though some of the language in this thread. Alpha, beta, cucks, snowflakes. **** off to America with that seppo bull**** in my opinion.

Well I'm looking at five pages of discussion of the election result. I'm wondering what the people posting/viewing this thread think is better for Australia.

*Is Australia better served by partisan or bipartisan policies?

*Disclaimer: This is a bipartisan question.

Bit of light relief....

Driving back from Sydney with a colleague and he mentioned all tradies love their utes/trucks. They may not get much at home but they have their trucks.

At what does the working man's party do- Labor wants to get rid of their trucks and give them electric Jettson vehicles- which will not get them across Sydney x3 before needing recharge.

He mentioned Coalition should have got an add, with video of a real Ranger in a crusher (This is what Greens/Labor want to do with your truck) and then show Mr Potatoe Head driving in a Jettson style animated electric bubble with tools falling out the back.
