    If you think it was.

    Anyway, I'm off to do something manly and attempt to build a shed.
    Whoops, I may be in trouble for being sexist. Might be time to start another thread!

    Not knowing how the system works is different to not being interested in politics.

    I think you'll find every person who votes has at least one area they have an interest in. Whether refugees, or marriage for same sex couples, or nbn etc.

    People do have interest in things, but most of the time, people source their news from the daily telegraph, the herald sun, aca, today tonight and are influenced by what they read and see there without questioning it and take it as gospel.

    I'm building a raised garden bed - and it's raining. I didn't realise building things was a mans job

    While some people do, I dont believe the majority do. I find those generalizations quite insulting.

    I've always referred to those shows as catering to the lowest common denominator. Which is far from the majority of the population

    So you think that if she wins it's because of her looks??? Do you really think Australian people are that stupid?

    The point I was making was that the bizarrely generated outrage at Abbott's comments has not had the desired negative effect on his standing.
    If anything, the outrage for the sake of outrage may have actually made people support him more. The sanctimonious vs the normal.

    In my opinion, people are sick of the offence takers taking offence. I know I definitely am.

    Maybe something else that you can all take offence to - Rudd stole a chip!!!! Disgusting. Who does he think he is??? (Sarcastic tone).

    Looking forward to the next whinge about nothing.
    There is a word for people who come into forums, twist people's words and attempt to start arguments where there weren't any.

    Really?? I see people quoting the DT etc all the time. I don't think it's a minority sourcing their views from these places at all

    Why is it, that everyone else in the entire world says that we are shockingly racists? I don't know any myself personally I wouldn't hang out with people like that myself. But we as a nation are - and it seems everyone in the entire world can see it except ourselves.

    I actually do think that the those shows appeal to the lowest denominator - and there are more of those types than we imagine. It all depends where you are, I used to live in a a labor/greens area. And I have now moved to a Nationals area. The people are completely different- and politics wise, the ones I have spoken to don't give a toss about it - they just want someone to take care of the farmers, and to send the boats back and that is it. Nationals always win here, there has never been anyone else.
