It is possible to disagree with someone on most points but concede on others, and given how central Australian politics any other scenario seems highly unlikely!

    Every time someone jumps on an Abbott-gaffe or makes sweeping general assumptions about his character I can't help but assume they're struggling to find something concrete to pin on him. You know, something more than just "the vibe". Or some compilation of sound-bytes a Labor staffer has put together to swing your vote.

    It's fine to dislike the man; plenty do, myself included. But why not stick to the facts? Stick to the policies? Instead of dreaming up content where there is none and reading between every imagined line?! Not to mention pretending that Labor hasn't given us plenty of fuel themselves. To read it here, anyone would think they'd been some kind of exemplary government.
    Yes.

    I must be the most politically naive person here on the Hub because I really wouldn't have a clue. I do think we should have marriage equality. That is a tick from me! But as for the rest of it, I dunno.

    I look at the politicians on more of a 'personal' level, although I realize they are just puppets for their party masters, and quite possibly the leaders we vote for won't see out the full term before they get the boot anyway! But still

    Tony Abbott perhaps needs some public speaking practice. He ummss and ahhss A LOT. Which bothers me. Dunno why

    KRudd on a personal level is ok. He is well spoken and seems pleasant enough.

    But I still dunno. Haha. I told ya'll I am politically naive

    Ok a friend of mine asked me if there was a gun to my head who would I sleep with - Tony Abbott or Campbell Newman?

    I replied "pull the trigger! "
