Unions have gone too far and are mostly concerned with power not equality.
Our political system is actually fairly decent comparatively to the world.
I vote liberal, because they run the country better and serve the country better but labour still has a place and does good things (that they can’t do without liberal purses)
By and large our political system is just a seesaw now.
Last four years have been a joke cos no one is running the country they are spending their time defending themselves within their party from losing priministership.

I think Julia Gillard set women in politics back 30 years.
John Howard was fantastic. Best priminister in recent history.
And I actually love tony abbot. He was unfairly labelled on so many fronts. He didn’t get much done in office but I actually think he was a genuine guy.
Kevin Rudd was also a bit of a likeable geek.
Scott Morrison is horribly out of touch.
And well Malcolm Turnbull was just an atypical Polly by the time he got in office. I like him after and before when he said what he said and meant it. I didn’t see any passion or strong stances while in office just protected his back the whole time, which was a shame.


Was that what you were after? Lol

Probably not...what would you like to discuss the disgusting consumerism that seems to completely consumed every generation alive today or the fact that this current government is going to make sure your children never own a house so they keep making their fat cat friends richer? Dive in people.

My son just bought his first home at 20 apparently in a market he’s “been naught out of”

The consumerism is WHY they can afford the house.

Is he on $100,000 a year, bank of mum & dad, inheritance, selling toilet paper for $15 a roll during the pandemic or ripping off pensioners with $1000's trade bills?

He’s been working since he was 12.
Did an apprenticeship and was fully qualified by 19. Worked for about 20 months saving every penny.
Now he rents out the other rooms to supplement his mortgage and plans to do a lot more travelling now he’s got his foot in the housing market.
He left homes week after he turned 19 after he finished his apprenticeship.
So yes he had help by living with mum and dad from 15-18 years old I suppose.
Wouldn’t have matter though, he’d have found a way regardless just might have taken him another year, he doesn’t make excuses.

I'd love to say yes. I yearn for decent, respectful debate where I can express opinions & understand how policies affect people from different walks of life, not just mine.

Unfortunately, not even the people in politics can be respectful & decent when discussing pokitics, so, I'd say probably not.
