I heard on the ABC (unreliable now?) that the highest moron vote was 21%.

In which seats did the moron party outpoll the Tories?

Embattled Labor MP Barry Urban has quit the Labor Party, amid a series of questions about his educational and service history.

In a statement to his Facebook page, Mr Urban said he told the Premier he would be resigning his party membership, as well as his membership of two Parliamentary committees.

Mr Urban said he expected to make a full statement to Parliament tomorrow.

Well of course probate should be reintroduced, prolly on a sliding scale affecting estates of $1.0M +. Family Trusts should also be taxed when a member pegs out - 30% flat rate.

I see that the young ALP leader in Tassie is campaigning on abolishing pokies.

Needless to say the cries of anguish from the qunts who pedal this misery is deafening (1000s of jobs at risk ya da ya da ya da....).

Good on her, her Fed colleagues didn't have the cojones to do this. I hope she wins.

Phurt!...Just more nannystate socialism. The small minority of problem gamblers need to accept responsibility for their own actions instead of having the whole of society pay for their weakness.

Small minority  It's not even gambling.  It's betting the week's pay on a farking random number generator for most of these poor fools.

I hate the pokies.

Like cigarettes, they are IMO little more than a selective blue collar and dole tax, a sneaky way of pinching money back from the unemployed and poor by governments that have been too gutless to impose a flat GST. They have taken the easy way out and - for decades now - stolen money back from the poor, the addicted, and the intellectually impoverished or bereft.

It's ironic that the ALP, which nobbled Kevin Lyons all those years ago so that they had the numbers to vote in a poker machine monopoly for Federal Hotels, now seeks to have them banned. If the Liberals had an ounce of courage they would make this a bipartisan policy so that it was no longer an election issue.

No, I've never played a poker machine.

At least you've quit - better late than never.

En route to various functions, notably a cricket function I attend at the Casino here annually, I have to 'run the gauntlet' to reach the function room. On these occasions I sometimes look at the poor souls sitting mesmerised by the rows of machines ... in their zombie-like state they never notice me or other passers-by checking them out; nor do they ever show the slightest evidence that they are enjoying themselves. I've seen people enjoying root canal therapy better ...

Well with the handle you had some control.

I often go to the local casino, to the cinema multiplex. The wife, who is a local bank manager, regularly sees her more troubled clients there.
