...and so the commencement of the implosion of One Nation (take 2) begins. Hanson's ego was a problem last time around and nothing has changed.

CF what do you mean by implosion?I assume you are talking about Rod Cullerton.The party is just getting rid of a bad egg.All parties have had bad eggs in their ranks over time.And with Hansons so called ego,what is wrong with that?At least she is straight to the point with issues.

No, she is still there. Or did you mean Malcolm Roberts? Both bad eggs.

Might be an implosion. It might be a good thing. Unlike the other parties she never supported him in order to retain power in parliment. When he ran in to troubles she made it clear she wouldn't tolerate bad behavior. The other leaders have both shown they are willing to forego honor to retain voting power.

I saw Hanson on ABC TV last evening. She talks is like an unwanted old hag hanging over your a back fence.

Her dialogue went like this, "I said this, then he said that, I said he said this and then he said that, and then he said that I said ..." Good god, what ever.

What any of our political jokers say doesn't matter at all. It is only what their puppet masters, the banksters and hedge fund managers dictate to the polies, that actually matters.

Democracy is dead. It is Democracy's impression that Democracy matters, that is Democracy's only successful achievement.

Warren.

Yes, she is incapable of intelligent dialogue, just like Roberts. Some may have missed the part when she said "I am boss". Integrity is not one of her strong suits. In fact I cannot honestly think of a single endearing quality in her.

The lady echoes average country dialogue well enough to keep getting elected and attracting candidates to her party.

While the press (scum bags) do their very best to portray her as badly as possible, even though she was elected on some mainstream issues - ie -investigation of bank practices & others so interesting I can't remember them...lol

It's unfortunate she hasn't had some professional tutelage in public speaking, she'd come over much better and not reply to the bait so often cast her way, maybe not even go bright red in the face.......

Pauline Hanson is the only intelligent person in parliament. Everyone else just panders to the leftist minority PC brigade to protect feelings and buy votes which is why this country is going down the toilet.

It's big business who buy all the politicians of both sides, which is why we ended up where we are...with the person on the street unrepresented. It's actually the Greens who are trying to limit the influence / corruption of big business.

I suspect that somewhere in the middle of Galaxymans & Bello Weathers posts is what goes on.

If the Greens didn't have B***S*** allies like Animals Australia they might have some cred.

With the Greens the devils in the details.

Yes, just recently these examples of left leaning pollies

Malcom Turnbull
- has written a book aimed at working mums and dads on how to minimise tax, and use offshore tax havens.

Cori Bernadi -has spoken to senior members and pasters about acceptance of gays in the church and its ceremonies.

Tony Abbott - has pushed for the female 'glass ceiling' to be abolished and more woman in politics.

Scott Morrison - has conceded that there has been too much cover up and hiding information from the public, and is now making moved to rectify.

Michaela CashCow - I know what its like to be poor, as I backpacked once (this one is true actually)

George Brandis - has said he will work more with senior staff and the public opinion and less with lobbyists.

Barnaby Joyce - has admitted that Australia is more than just Gina Reinhardt and some pastoralists.

Julie Bishop - has admitted that some of legal dealings in her previous career have been totally morally bankrupt and have impacted individual working Australians.

Been a bit of talk in here about political parties imploding. Looks like we can add another party to that list, perhaps..

"Hard-left faction forms inside Greens aiming to 'end capitalism'

Internal tensions within the Greens have boiled over, with members of the hard-left of the party grouped around NSW Senator Lee Rhiannon forming their own faction dedicated to the "fight to bring about the end of capitalism".

The formation of the group calling itself "Left Renewal" is an escalation of an ongoing battle between the so-called eastern bloc of the Greens and the group they dismiss as "tree Tories".

Crackpot Greens !

Indian is about half way done the corruption perception list.

There are better ways to use central inland Queensland. The Bradfield vision of turning the some of the big rivers like the Burdekin inland is a start, although I am in two minds about dams, done properly it can be a permanent boost to Australia, not a temporary one.

One of my biggest fears with the Adani mine is it will run for a while, bankrupt and leave tens or hundreds of square kilometres of top soil stripped country as an environmental wasteland.

Ok. Lets look at it from a different perspective. What parties do we have in Australian politics that are not a total failure at this point? I personally can't think of any.

Not to mention a 1 Billion Dollar Government "Loan" to build a railway to nowhere if the mine fails....1 Billion out of the 5 Billion dollar "Infrastructure Fund" to a foreign owned company whilst Townsville folk cant even water their gardens...I dislike this govt more and more each day..
