    Why no nomination :worst Federal LNP Government for disservice to Australia and the entire Australian populace?

    So many arseholes and so many good people to vote for…a difficult”t decision

    Is it possible to vote for the Australian political system in general and our parliamentary system in particular. Any voting system which sees senators elected with the kinds of numbers that Malcolm Roberts got can’t be taken seriously. Likewise, single member electorates in the lower house are fundamentally undemocratic and only result in a two-party system. It’s not just time for a republic, it’s time for a new political system.

    From what I read Gladys Berijiklian is far worse than Dan Andrews.
    Oh well, no need to renew subscription to another right wing rag!

    It says something about the unrivalled standard of arsehattedness in Australia when Mark Latham and Malcolm Roberts don’t even make the short list.
