Australian Election [chat]

Strewth, fellow cobbers! It's election season, it is! Bloomin' onion oath, the election's tomorrow, and I haven't even shined me dress blue wifebeater! Now I don't have none of them fancy know-smarts, being a venerable and wise tradie, but I can tell you about the main runners in the coming election season, by crikey.

jCabjSil.jpg

Malcolm Turnbull is leader of the Liberals, the current mob in government. Their main policy so far as I can tell is destroying everything in the name of fiscal responsibility, and then spending billions on some new submarines and a plebiscite on gay marriage in the name of fiscal responsibility. A bunch of right-centre chundertossers.

ymq7oSZl.jpg

Bill Shorten is the leader of the Labor party, a bloke so bland I genuinely had to Bing me up a Google of "labor leader" to remember his bloody name, oi. They're the better of the two main parties, but gor lummy this was their election to lose and they took that challenge like Skippy taking a hop around the bush and saving some baby from a dingo, too roight.

BVtO8P7l.jpg

Richard Di Natale is the leader of the Greens, some pooftah mob of tree-hugging hippies who wouldn't know a hard day's work in the red Australian earth if it came up and kicked 'em in the bum, I tell you what.

Now, who are you voting for, you lot? Because I know where my first preference is going!

Y6qgCh4l.jpg

Crack open a Fosters and smear some Vegemite on your willy, mates, it's time to vote!

    The Sex Party are pretty much rivals to the Greens, in that they are left-wing hippies who believe in personal freedoms in sex, drugs, and rock and roll. They want marriage equality, moving towards legalised drugs, religious organisations to be taxed, humanitarian relief and refugee intake, etc. Socially libertarian, I guess?

    Well that was depressing. I had a good appointment with my Psychologist yesterday. We're starting on cognitive behavioral therapy stuff.

    I felt encouraged so I was trying to find some sort of liberal/democrat/progressive group or space for people in my area. I looked through meetup.com local subreddits, straight up googling, and there's just...nothing

    Yet I know these people exist, hell my town has a democrat mayor but God damn good luck finding them. I feel like I have to say the password to the right dude on the corner of some street or something

    Haven't you already had a half dozen prime ministers in the last three years?

    You guys need to just stick with one.

    At least I found our mayor's wikipedia page.

    God damn:

    Moran graduated from Georgetown University with bachelor's and master's degrees in finance/economics and international commerce. She graduated cum laude. Moran conducted graduate research at the Institute of World Economics in Germany as a Fulbright Scholar. She was also an economist at the World Trade Organization in Geneva. She is a former fellow of the Robert Bosch Foundation for German American Leadership, where she worked for the German Ministry of France. In 2006, she was selected to be the Bosch Alumnus of the Year for her leadership in Hurricane Katrina recovery efforts.[3]

    separately. Get some "funny" pins to put on the trilby. It enhances the panty dropping power of it.

    Four, and technically speaking "we the people" don't elect the prime minister, we elect representatives who form government who then have a leader who becomes prime minister

    Because it isn't a directly elected position it becomes open to party room coups, as both the Liberals and Labor have experienced

  • durandal4532durandal4532 Registered User regular
    Yeah Elite has some weird controls to start but you can wrestle them into shape.

    Hahaha like I'm just remembering the default "landing gear" button is right next to the "jettison all cargo" button.
