Australian election

What a pleasant surprise! A right royal rootin' for the lefties, the Greenies and the bleeding heart Libs! Good Fkn job!
A big win for commonsense and the voice of reason.


Opportunity doesn't knock! It presents it'self when you beat down the door!

A huge relief all right. Some of the things that Labour was talking about were going to make life very difficult for any business.
And discriminate against anyone who had worked hard to secure their future and that of their family.
Anyhow, very happy to see Shorten get a big kick up the arse.
Now just got to hope this effin drought finishes and we can start making some money for a change.

Oh the sweet joy of watching Penny Wong on the ABC election night coverage holding her head in her hands and wondering where it all went wrong

We dodged a bullet alright.

Currently planting wheat so spending a bit of time on the tractor and the ABC radio is a buddle of misery. I think some of the commentators and polls just were trying so hard for it to happen that they started to believe their own propaganda.

Anyway a great result for Australia and common sense.

Yes ....... I feel the tide has turned on creeping socialism. The arty-farty, trendyís of the inner city & their media supporters are, & have never been, a full or even a partial representation of the average Joe & Mary Blogs who just work their best to provide the best the can for their families & invest when & where they can to provide longer term security & wealth creation. Itís choice & incentive ........ democracy ........ & a definite no to socialism!

What is absolutely staggering is the lefties & the media (ABC) are still publicly castigating those of us that didnít support their ideas & their policies! Especially those Queenslanders ....... gee, you lot have really got them spitting chips! F#*ken good I say!

I wonder what day they will realise that the vast majority of OZ voters didnít support their policies? Hopefully itís many years.

Love to see those kind of people eat crow. Good for you guys!!!! Hope this will help get things turned around for you over there.


When our stupid country elected the stupid leader we have now, I swear to god one of the CTV announcer, Lisa Laflamme, had an orgasm on national television when they announced a Liberal majority. I want to watch her face when the next election comes up and her pretty boy wonder gets destroyed.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Rod that sounds like our last election, and the media is still unable to accept the results.

The Aussie voters must be smarter than I thought and can see through the Labour lies. My lefty Brother and his son texted me and said I would be happy with the win to which I replied and said you should be to because your future is secure for another 3 years. No reply
