Remember, don't be distratcted by the fact Malcolm Turnbull could play an aged Draco Malfoy.

This election looks as though it will be tight. If he does win and it is less than resounding, he has nothing like the popularity within his party to make it to the next election.

And don't go glancing at Tony Abbott. It will be Scott Morrison.

The man who believes people like me asking him to STFU when he says our parents aren't real parents because they're gay is exactly the same as being subjected to decades of homophobic bigotry.

The man whose grip on maths makes me look like Stephen Hawking.

The man who seriously blinks in confusion when doctors and educators describe their need for genuinely fast broadband, especially in rural and regional areas.

The onion Tony Abbott ate would make a better Prime Minister than Scott Morrison.

I know the Labor party are about as interesting as a brick, but I really hope people will vote for them anyway. They have historically been better economic managers for this country (and anyone planning to contest that statement should simply look at the record over the last 35 years. Even counting Whitlam (their worst), they have still been better since Federation) and are actually useful at legislating. This government has been in place for over two years and is yet to pass a budget.

I really don't want us to spend the next three years with people like me getting tax cuts while others can't afford to take their kids to the doctor. Let's not talk about the ghastly plebiscite. My only consolation is that, unlike Brexit, we can always do better later if it all goes wrong.

And even Whitlam left behind a govt in the black when he was booted out. Also, sewage in western Sydney & Melbourne. That can't be stated enough.

Please clarify for this poor Sandgroper,

Did he leave sewage behind, or a sewage *system*?

sewage systems. They were still on outhouses in the early 70s

yeah, it's a bit scary. Not kidding when they say Whitlam changed the fact of Australia. And out bottoms too.

We need to call the agency and let them know these temps are no good. Fire the lot of them and send us some more, double fire the red headed woman this time.

what is wrong with the world? why is everyone retreating to old outdated bitgotted values thinking that means safety? Where do they put their brains (since they are obviously not using them)? I am sitting here in the US worrying about a guy with a gourmet dessert concoction for a hairstyle becoming the next president... I think he thinks it will be like the Apprentice and he can just fire people that have been elected if they don't agree with him. I am so sad for the world

Dare I hope that there is a Harry Potter in the offing? I need consolation for the loss of Ricky ( and swapping him out for Pauline and Derryn is not q fair exchange).
