Granted, hatred is not the same as disappointment, but the speakers I saw weren't just expressing disappointment. Crowds booing at the mere mention of a name is different to just sighing at the mention of a name.
Perhaps the footage I have seen of speakers was in the minority, but alongside of the more than 7) hateful signs, I heard hate speech from people speaking to the rally attendees.
We know I didn't attend my local rally, but I've yet to be convinced how a rally such as this one (or the convoy if no confidence for that matter is in anyway going to bring about any positive change. How does it achieve anything except fuel negativity?

The thing is, the people at the rally were there peacefully.
I haven't heard of the speeches you mention, but that doesn't mean 100,000+ condone what the speakers were saying.
In the lead up to the march, there was no encouragement of promoting hatred towards the pm.

So what do people think of the speaker of the house?
Is she impartial?

Okay - I've been a bit sparse for the last couple of days- (funnily enough mostly concentrating on sorting stuff for our next election here for the new 6 senators which is in itself a bit laughable). The theories on what happened to the ~ 1300 votes which have cost taxpayers a fair whack (including my salary LOL) is sort of amazing. The most amazing thing is the overkill which has been drilled into us at training (but obviously it's necessary). I know some other people present were saying - "surely not", but the mere fact that ballot papers went missing and we have to replay the whole senate ballot is amazing to me (surely this is unique in our process).
I have every intention to reply to all of the links and questions that have been posed to me, but honestly, I've been a bit overrun this weekend.
Doesn't mean I'm any less interested in politics
