Antony Green said on its announcement that with the greens now as strong as they are (and set to get stronger with this) on recent balloting trends the ALp need not fear a Lib majority whilst in govt.

The ALP should grow up.

He's so totally going to run...


Gilchrist said he has not ruled out a move into politics, but is not planning on running for public office at the moment.
“No I’m not interested in getting into politics at the moment,” he said.
“I’m always careful to say never say never. But I don’t see myself getting into politics for now.
“I do find politics enjoyable, from a distance. I’ve learnt a great deal of politics and Canberra and government from my role heading up the Australia Day Council for six years.
“I do enjoy Canberra.”

Cheers MrK.

Parramatta, ay? Hard to see the former Dubber moving from Wozzieville to be a pollie. Still, always happy to see a high profile good bloke join the Blues.

The Shovel on Negative Gearing

Motoring Enthusiast Party Concerned Abolition Of Negative Gearing Could Make Parallel Parking Too Difficult

By The Shovel on February 25, 2016

The Australian Motoring Enthusiast Party has called for compulsory negative gearing in all vehicles, saying Labor’s proposed abolition of the law could lead to unnecessary detours and increased difficulty in parallel parking.

The party’s senator, Ricky Muir, said now was not the time to be messing around with the laws. “Negative gearing has been a feature of Australian motoring culture for decades. I see no reason to change that now”.

He said changing the law was dangerous policy and that the potential impacts had not been properly thought through. “Say I go down a narrow dead-end street and then need to turn around. Under Labor’s proposed changes, that would be next to impossible.

“Three point turns would be totally out of the question – you’d need to drive around the block. And then there’s the whole issue of getting out of a supermarket car park. I mean, has anyone thought of the implications of all this? It feels like policy made on the run”.

Mr Muir said the changes would also lead to a drop in the value of cars. “Mate, I wouldn’t be paying top dollar for a car that can’t go backwards, and I know other people would have the same opinion. What Labor wants to do is smash the value of every single car in Australia. It’s pretty reckless if you ask me”.

Clive Palmer's question to Turnbull in QT today:

Q: As Australia’s third oldest prime minister, if you are still prime minister after the election, will you serve a full term in parliament or retire to your unit in New York and do a switch with a Member for Warringah, sustaining yourself with innovation and growth opportunities, your investments have provided for the people of the Cayman Islands? It’s never been amore exciting time to be a Cayman Islander. Are you a seat warmer?
