Polls open in Australian election; opposition tipped to win

I hope so!

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Time for a "Democracy sausage"!!

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Go One Nation! The only party with sensible policies for ordinary Australians.

-4 ( +2 / -6 )

LOL!

2 ( +5 / -3 )

97-98% of eligible voters vote - a kind of constitutionally copulsory democracy.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

Lets hope the polls are wrong and a Liberal Nations win control of the lower house and Conservative Independents control the upper house

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Why?

Australia needs a wage rise, it would never get it under the coalition. Of course it also doesn't need Labor's wealth redistribution, the communists have proven it doesn't work.

That leaves the others, UAP, One Nation, Frazer Anning's neo-nazi, anti-vax, Greens, or independents. To me it's a mess which ever way it goes, you know it's schiitz when they dumped Julie Bishop but kept Peter Dutton.

I had more of a challenge to determine who to put last rather than whom to put first this election....

UAP, One Nation, Fraser Anning (or Mr. 19 votes) etc....but there were a lot more muppet candidates this year across the board, eg people who thought rape jokes on social media were "funny", or comments slagging their own fellow party members as being "notorious homosexuals" rather than actually bothering to address the issues that people are concerned with (regardless of one's leanings).

The leadership shenanigans, nor obstructionism on the Banking RC from the LNP over the last few years certainly don't help their case, either.

Polls are now closed. Multiple exit polls are pointing to ALP around 52-48 mark.

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Seems the LNP did better in QLD which may really help its cause, however, it's almost certain that Tony Abbott has lost with such savage swings against him.
