    This must be how it feels to be a conservative.

    Who are you referring to here? If its the Labor Party fine, but people in this thread who were critical of the Coalition policy were also critical of Labor from 2010-2013 when they changed their policies, and they also targeted the language they started to use too.

    So did anyone notice a Kevin Andrews and his wife ran a marriage counselling organisation?

    Marriage Education - Home

    They're saying, despite her still being a 'marriage educator', he and she resigned a couple of months back, hence no conflict of interest. I feel better now.

    What a great appointment from the 'conservatives'

    A man who has actually done things, and served the community

    Meanwhile the Left are still hoping for some boats to arrive.

    If people drown, so be it...they drown at the altar of Labor's political advantage

    What appointment are you talking about? The new executive position at the ABC which ensures that the broadcaster is always cheerleading and reporting news pro-Australia?

    I think he means Costello as permanent chairman of the Future Fund. It's not official yet but it was reported as being very likely again today.

    Anyway, the ABC has always been a leftist joke. Jumped the shark once they stopped showing state league indoor cricket.

    Thought it was clear I was using his vagueness to take the opportunity to bag Abbott's comments on the ABC.
