I’ve been pretty upfront with you, I don’t like you, your opinions, your political leanings, your online persona, your unjustified awesome braggadocio. Not sure how that makes me a coward. I may well be an areshole. Not sure how I’m smearing you, there’s some sort of victim mentality going on in your head, learned from poor Barnaby perhaps.

Personally, I just block him for all the same reasons - but unfortunately it doesn't filter the quoted content.

surely the end must be soon for Hanson....her disgraceful performance over the last few weeks defy's belief that anyone would still support her.

I think it was the constituents that were being referred to. i.e. surely people aren't stupid enough to vote for.........

She's like the bad smell on your shoe you just can't get rid of though....... she's somehow managed to keep herself alive all these years, rehashing policies and statements, just changing the ethnicity of the target as required.  Herself, she'll be around for a while still, more's the pity.

i don't watch the whole interview just snippets, but i think both Barnaby and Vicki are disgraceful waste of spaces. 

Barnaby still doesn't get why he was sacked from the top job. It wasn't because of the baby you twit.

and i can't stand people who make allegations without naming names, anyone can do that. I seriously doubt anyone put 'pressure' on her not to have the baby. Then she contradicted herself saying it was too late to have an abortion yet she reckons she went into a clinic then walked out.

I had far more interesting things to do - cleaning the oven and taking the garbage out...

So, apart from the supposed pressure to have an abortion, did anyone learn anything that wasn't already known?  Or were 7 duped out of 150k?

i hope the ratings were poor. i had zero interest watching it and i really doubt that Barnaby did it because 'they have been hounded with the media'

I read it picked up about 600k viewers, bit the show before had 800k so about 200k drop off.  Would have loved to have seen less watching it.  Calling it a ch7 blunder.

From what I heard, it was a bit of a fluff interview, and none of the real questions people wanted to know were asked, let alone answered. 

Nothing about the jobs created for her

Nothing about why gay marriage is bad because of the "Sanctity of Marriage".

Nothing about her trips with him after she'd left the role with him, and who paid for them.

After saying he knew he couldn't stay Dep PM, they didn't bother to ask why he fought on to hold it.

 

Should have had Karl interviewing him. :)

Has Billy Boy cost Labor any chance in the next election?  There's no chance he'll put the leadership up for grabs....... (I don't specifically have any more issue with BS than with any other pollie, but clearly he is unliked).

I'm still not sure what happened to the budget emergency we had?

if labor doesn't fair well at the by elections, shortpantz will be rolled for leadership. he is an idiot and I hate that everytime he stuffs up, he disappears from the media.  labor is not so united as they claim.

But it's not so easy to roll a leader in the Labor party any more; didn't Krudd change things, so wouldn't shorten pretty much have to put the leadership up to a vote?  And if he doesn't, too bad, so sad, don't be mad, he'll be glad.

So bs does a Hanson flip flop......

Now I'll say it again, I myself have issues with bs, but this was a stupid thing to do without consulting the party room.  But I reckon they go to the next election with him as leader then they lose.

He had to flip flop on this and when he actually said it, i don't think he really thought it through. Many would now wonder if he will flip flop again on this policy if elected. 

At the moment, the two party preferred is so in favour of Labor, a drovers dog could beat Turnbull, but as long as shortlips is there, there is still a big chance for a third term Liberal government.   

Expect the election to be called for October though.

Flip flopping on policy and promises is a politicians and political parties staple though!  It's almost funny to see PH getting such grief over it when they all do it ad nauseam.  I mean, look what happened once TA was in power?
