    Haha, that's right! Remember when Kelly said that, Julian Morrow rang her and offered her a job.

    Edit: not one question today onthe mining tax. Very odd - an MPI yesterday, nothing today.

    Just started watching this week's Q & A online this morning before work...seems the young debater (and Liberal?) brought along his cheer squad. Is the rowdiest episode that I can remember ever.

    Needless to say, every time the young bloke talks it gives me the ****s

    Is a good bloke tbh. I take pride in the fact that we outpolled him at UQ last year.

    When Maxine was speaking at the start I though it was outrageously rowdy. Can't believe how much clapping there was when Bernardi finished his burqa rant as well.

    I thought Mitch Grady was quite good too. Made some good points about the current state of the Liberal party.

    And yeah definitely a rowdy crowd. The claps after Bernardi spoke were surprising, if not scary.

    Since when is it a right to see someone else's face?

    Wow. The young Libs took a break from spamming the comments sections in the articles on news.com.au with pro Liberal slogans to turn up to the Evil Empire's studio to cheer their boy on.

    Good on them.

    I think the 16% is made up of disaffected Labor and Liberal voters who can't warm to their preferred party's leader and are at the moment parking their vote elsewhere. However, during a campaign, where there is absolute blanket coverage of the major parties and the minor parties are virtually sidelined, that 16% will halve.

    Some of it will go 'home' to Liberal, some of it will go 'home' to Labor.
    Yes, theres no doubt some of that 16% are Turnbull/Fraser supporters that hate Abbott just as much as any sane-non religious fanatic-ratbag person does. What happened with Richard Court and green votes in WA a few years ago is a good precedent - there are Liberal voters who care about the environment.

    But if Liberal supporters ( I couldnt imagine any Nats voter ever even thinking about saying he/she/it/sheep would support the Greens - even in private) are that unhappy with Abbott and Co. then why wouldn't he/she switch to the ALP? If Liberal supporters are going that far to say they support Greens then its not that far fetched they would switch to Labor during an election.

    Not sure how true this is, but in 2007 the reason Greens picked up astronomical (for them) primary votes in blue-chip Liberal seats was because 'doctor's wives' rose up in general dissent without jeopardising their share portfolios.

    Could be wrong, mind.

    Poll Alert

    - Morgan today
    - Nielsen on Monday
    - No Newspoll on Tuesday 15 June, as the 14th is a public holiday (which apparently corrupts the sample).

    So the next Newspoll will be Tuesday 22 June (my birthday).

    Why did Abbott deny during Question Time that he said the stimulus package did not help the economy, when only a few months earlier he clearly said it did not, in a speech no less.

    Allowed Rudd to have a field day with that.

    Not many people watch QT mate, unfortunately.. wish they did right now. Those who do are generally the tragics though, and pretty much rusted-ons from each side in any event.

    I think most people feel that if they want to see childish antics, they can pop up to the school at lunch time.

    Or pop into OT

    Yeah QT has been especially hard to watch lately. Points of order have been thick and fast and ****.
