I sat directly behind Bill Shorten on a MEL-SYD flight about six weeks ago. Bill put his feet up on the bulkhead for most of the flight. Don't vote for Bill.
Yes, much too tame. Can't you spice it up a bit.
Propaganda finds its way into everything. It is what it is, and why should it be a surprise that AFF reflects what is happening in the broader community?. In fact given that so much of AFF is about relatively affluent pursuits, it's certainly no surprise to me that there are some fairly ideological right wingers around here.Sad, so very sad to see this stuff on AFF. And to BOLD it is always a classic to make sure its heard. Pointless to say anything else other than i thought i belonged to Australian Frequent Flyer, not some ideological right winged site. And before you have a go at me, I'm a coal miners son working in the minerals industry.
I think pollsters have been wrong quite a bit over the last few years, so I agree.We are a day behind in California so it will be Friday night in California that many Australians will be voting. Enjoy the sausage sizzle and other hoopla on Saturday.
The only thing I cannot figure is just what support is going to UAP and I think the pollsters may have the numbers wrong by quite a bit. Then it becomes a question of who is losing votes to UAP if what I suspect actually happens.
Their massive advertising blitz may never occur again but who knows what the future holds.
Yes, we'll be voting tomorrow, even though I work close to a pre-poll location. Will be delivering #DemocracyCakes to the election stall at our church in the morning, then helping up with packing up later on, so sometime in between we'll also vote. Even if I pre-voted, I'd be attending one or two cake stalls to find some goodies!!Is anyone actually voting on May 18? I live not far from an early voting centre and went there yesterday PM...and OMG the queues were unbelievable! I took one look and didn't even bother; I can wait until Saturday!
I wonder if they paid out early on Hillary Clinton winning - wonder what that would have cost them in the end!Nope they cannot claw back - it was their decision to payout early.
Yes they would be reqd to pay out again if Libs happen to stagger over the line.
And they do hold a reasonable book on all these exotic bets they lay.
FTR: Premature Reperation IMHO - so many unknowns to be played out with the involvement of the Clowns that QLD have inflicted apon us all.
Remember that Theo Theophanus, a Vic ALP Minister, was also accused of rape in the late 2000s and stood down from Cabinet to fight the charges. It was reported in the media but the LNP didn't use them against him, in the same way that we haven't seen the LNP raise these allegations against Shorten. What needs to be remembered is that Kathy Sheriff is an ex Labor member who says this happened at a Young ALP camp in the 80s, so she certainly wouldn't be ideologically motivated. Reports suggests that she would be a credible witness and, as others have noted, the rules have changed in Victoria which makes it easier to prosecute these types of cases.Oh goodness these sexual assault allegations, conspiracy theory perhaps?
Although I can actually envisage a scenario where a fortress is in place now, but given that it is more difficult under the new ALP rules to change leaders, the power brokers are holding the allegations in their back pocket (or even orchestrated them in the first place) in case they need to bring him down from within. After all if he does win it would break all sorts of protocols if he served out the full term
