Coalition back in the race with Morrison at the helm

Latest Newspoll shows Morrison in commanding humiliating loss

The decision to dump Malcolm Turnbull and install Scott Morrison as PM has paid dividends for the government with the latest Newspoll showing the Government trailing Labor 47 to 53 on the election-deciding two party preferred basis.

Prior to Turnbull’s demise, the Government was sitting at 49 to 51.

Mr Morrison and his LNP colleagues will be further buoyed by the Fairfax-Ipsos poll, also released last night, which shows the Government trailing Labor by a mere 10 points on the 2PP.

The Fairfax-Ipsos survey also found that that 74 per cent of voters oppose laws that  allow religious schools to dismiss students and teachers based on their sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status.

Poll Gloom for Bill Shorten

The decision by the Liberals to dump Turnbull from the prime ministership 7 weeks ago and install the former treasurer resulted in an immediate dive in the polls – kind of like a “reverse honeymoon”.

The prime minister now faces a significant test on Saturday, where the Liberals will attempt to hold Malcolm Turnbull’s Sydney seat of Wentworth, however several polls suggest there will be a strong protest vote against the government.

“God talks to me at 4.30am”

Fortunately, the PM claims to have a direct line to the almighty, and is convinced that the Government will prevail this weekend and at the Federal Election next year.

Meanwhile in the real world, today’s Liberal party “comeback” as reflected in the polls would deliver the ALP an electoral victory equal to the largest win in the past 35 years.

    “Australian Labor will move to remove exemptions allowing LGBT teachers and staff at religious schools to be sacked.”

    Would it be fair to say that Philip Ruddock’s religious freedom review isn’t quite going to plan.

    Chuckle … SloMo’s full burble at Guardian

    There are 29,000 small and family businesses in Wentworth. That is an electorate where there have been people putting their effort and their resources, putting their family homes, on the line to run the businesses that they have been creating in Wentworth and running over a lifetime through generations.

    That is why they can trust us. I was talking to Johnny the chocolatier down in Rose Bay the other day.

    A vibrant family business that has been there for several generations and he backs our plan for small and family business and he knows that he can trust us, like all the family businesses in Wentworth, because he knows that we believe it.

    You never know what Labor is going to do on the other side of an election. They say all sorts of things. They have said things before, before Kevin Rudd got elected.

    They said what he would do on national security and be an economic Conservative and you elect the guy and it all turns, it all changes. That is what people need to think about in Wentworth.

    With the Liberal Party you know what you are going to get.

    With the Labor Party you never know what you are going to get and with Independents you certainly don’t know what you are ever going to get.

    It is like the good old box of chocolates – you never know what you are going to get when it comes to voting Independent. We have seen that in this Parliament too often.”

    Wonder if “Johnny” exists?

    That’s true, there they were thinking about doing something or other with the outrageous and discriminatory laws of Gillard, and now they won’t get to!

    I can’t really remember, but were we particularly outraged when the ALP passed these laws?

    but were we particularly outraged when the ALP passed these laws?

    I don’t recall the details, but I do know that, during Gillards time, ‘negotiation’ was the theme, and many amendments were made to get the best part of better laws through

  17. Tom of Melbourne permalink
    October 15, 2018 2:43 pm

    Yes, no doubt Oakshot, Windsor etc would have been absolutely insistent about ensuring this leglislative discrimination

    In recent years, the Government has amended 84 laws which discriminate against the homosexual community.

    In other words, it wasn’t really Gillard who wrote the laws for this, they already existed. They removed many, and, now have said they will remove more.

    It’s not perfect, but far better than the alternative

    No worries, but at least we know this wasn’t a specific change required by the Abbott, Andrews, Abetz nutcases (as I thought)

    I looked at your tweet. People are saying it was the ALP who brought in the laws they are now talking about removing. This from the first tweet in response to Sky News

    No one despised gay people more than Gillard and the Labor party.Not only did Gillard and Labor block SSM but they introduced laws to kick gay children out of Catholic schools.

    And let’s not keep kidding ourselves that it was to banish the forever the possibility of LGBTI kids and teachers being harassed in religious environments of “learning” and indoctrination

    TB, the point is that your assumption was wrong. Gillard holds more responsibility for these laws than the “catliks” – but that just wasn’t on your radar.

    Yet you can`t comprehend the biggest offenders of this are; those that snort magical skyfairy dust! And the catlicks are the oldest, longest and largest dealers of magical skyfairy dust. Take a look at stooten, abetz, kevin07, rabbit, slomo, andrews and others; all hooked on their flavor of magical skyfairy dust; and had to be dragged kicking and sreaming by the public to get gay marriage passed.

    not just exchange links.

    I think you meant to say facts 😉

    Gillard holds more responsibility for these laws than the “catliks”

    The Facts dispute that.

    The amendments were put in by the libs.

    Gillard had them out altogether.

    In other words, Gillard had removed the raft of pre-existing laws completely, and these smaller ones only went back in because the libs pushed it.

    Just to get some links facts back into the ‘discussion’

  39. Tom of Melbourne permalink
    October 16, 2018 8:56 am

    I see, how did the Libs pass the laws, when they didn’t have a majority? Did they get the support of Oakshott, Windsor etc?

  40. Tom R permalink
    October 16, 2018 9:00 am

    I see, so, by that reckoning, the libs just prevented a racist motion from being passed by their government.

    Did you read the links?

  41. Tom of Melbourne permalink

    Did the ALP vote for or against the amendments?

  42. Tom R permalink
    October 16, 2018 9:07 am

    They voted for a package that was far better than what existed. Of course, they could have kept the old laws as they were, but they were even worst.

    Another way of looking at it yomm (the accurate way, now the Facts are revealed (thanks Mivi) is that they vastly improved on the existing laws, but that the libs prevented them from going all the way. With a lot of pressure from …… katlicks etal

    LOL! I’m excited!</i.
