    That is very poor form. How are people to know what the candidates will do for the community if they aren't allowed to talk to them?

    No I'm not talking about the need to look for work or study. Yes Howard brought that in and I have no issue with that. Prior to Gillard, single parents needed to do the above but still kept the same rate of pay. She decided that single parents should get the base rate, in effect the partnered rate, which is around $150 a fortnight less.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong as I've never been a single parent.....

    Who here with a daughter would like them to be described by their colleagues as Abbott does to his colleagues?

    I initially took it as real but then it was pointed out to me that it is most likely satire. It's in the opinion section. Abbott's still a moron.

    You know, I still don't know. I've been trying to find out. I didn't think Mike Carlton did satire? The fact that it's so hard to tell is very scary.

    ETA: which is why I initially posted it. I assumed it was satire but it is soooo truly believable too.

    I assumed it was satire because that is actually Mike Carlton's style.
