That's right. If Labor win the upcoming election, there is absolutely no chance of Scomo becoming/remaining PM.

As of March 13 on a 2 party preferred basis, 56-44 in Labor's favour.

https://www.roymorgan.com/findings/8917 ... 2203160002


Even if the Coalition comes back from its current position and wins, I don't expect Morrison will remain PM for long.

But each day that passes make a Coalition win less and less likely. Morrison is seeking to distance himself from the Coalition's SA state defeat in the same way he did from the NSW by-elections thrashing.



Lord help us if the coalition retains power. I do hope that Scomo falls prey to game of musical chairs that is party leadership.

With regards to Morrison distancing the coalition from the SA loss, it's not really surprising, but expected as tactics/strategy as this applies to either side. If it's a loss at at state level, it's decided on state issues and nothing to do with the federal government, however if it's a win, it's because of great the party. Just a matter of finding which connect/disconnect they are looking for.

Oh, I know the response is de rigeur - it's also on top of the general Morrison "anything good I did, andything bad someone else did" perspective as PM.

I don't think either government would have done things much different with regards to covid, its easy to look back in hindsight as say woulda coulda shoulda. A party in opposition can throw mud easier than when in power.

The government did as it was expected to do provide support to the states, but unfortunately the states that gave Morrison the most grief with putting when it came to a consensus between them were the Labor run states made him look like a fool when they decide to go against the leaders conference.

Even the darling of New Zealand the PM Arden is having support problems with covid

Successful i would hardly call it that when the states went and did there own thing stopping people from entering other states even at times of when compassion was necessary cutting off families, but its alright for the QLD ALP Premier to go to Tokyo games geez that's real leadership right there

In reply to A101.
I think the recent swing against the Ardern led Labour government is largely a manifestation of the current grim news feeds we are recieving from around the world. This in conjunction with our current, and our totally unaccustomed levels of covid deaths and hospitilisations here in spite of incredible efforts the vast majority of us have have maintained.
In short we are sick of the constraints of the last two years, they are not our fault, and we want things to change. Lots of things but we don't really know what just yet.
Incumbent powers will suffer from this type of thinking.

Isn't Scott Morrison still the preferred PM?

A vote for Labor is a vote for Bill Shorten to become PM (he has always believed this to be his entitlement) within a year or two after his faceless mates spill Albo out.

This sounds like scaremongering by an Albo hater. The leadership of both parties has been surprisingly stable this term.

Morrison has a small lead as preferred PM in polling, and the gap has been overall closing. There haven't been polls yet covering the period after the flooding crisis. I don't recall the PM and opposition leader being this close in a very long time. Morrison's "lead" is a result of the composite figure, where more respondents "don't know" about Albanese as preferred PM. Morrison's most recent polling shows 41% satisfied, 55% dissatisfied and 4% don't know. For Albanese the figures were 44%, 42% and 14%.

Labor has a considerable lead in two party preferred polling which, if correct, makes the preferred PM polling immaterial.

Labor was in the political wilderness until 1972. SInce then, Labor held Government in 1972-1975, 1983-1997 and 2007-2013.

My personal view is that the Caolition got over the line at the last election because the electorate didn't really know Scott Morrison. This term the electorate has come to know him as a national leader on par with Billy McMahon. I am very hopeful that the ALP under Albo will win the election, but am wary of the very well funded populist "protest" party that is UAP.

To be honest I was thinking of doing that or just getting my name ticked off at polling and casting a donkey, I am very weary of ALP and do not trust Albo and especially Penny Wong

So far neither side has demonstrated that they have earned my vote

TBH this laughable considering the NSW liberals state and federal liberals have their own preselection issues at the moment.

Considering the Coalition have no real legislative agenda and haven't so for the last 8 years the only thing that will get them over the line is the continous politicisation of Kimberly Kitching's death.

Interesting polling released by Roy Morgan yesterday, showing Scott Morrison with the greatest distrust score of currently serving politicians and Penny Wong, followed
by Anthony Albanese with the highest trust scores https://www.roymorgan.com/findings/8933 ... 2203220543

Very pointedly, Clive Palmer had the highest distrust score, but is not a currently serving poliitician. The only currently serving UAP MP, Craig Kelly, had the 5th highest distrust score.

It would be interesting to see whether this has moved the dial on trustworthiness. Given the late Ms Kitching's alleged actions (leaking information to a Government minister) which seem to have been a catalyst for mistrust which may be been construed by some as bullying, I can't say I'd blame people if they chose not to be sweetness and light towards her.

If you don't trust Morrison or Albo and by association the parties they lead, at least spoil your ballot paper to vote informal rather than giving a vote to the even less trustworthy UAP - which we know will flow back to the Coalition anyway.

From the discussion above, ALP seems to be Albanese Labor Party. I am guessing Albanese is either a religion or a community or a popular region in Australia. Did know that Mr. Morisson bought coal to the parliament. And this is when world-over people and Governments are moving away from fossil fuels -

https://cleantechnica.com/2022/03/18/ge ... u-ice-ban/

The above was a bit of a shocker as there are so many auto manufacturers there who are still to make the transition and probably more than few auto major may bite the dust.

Haha! Probably a factor of this thread being about Scott Morrison, his direct opponent in parliament.

Anthony Albanese (Known as Albo colloquially, and not named himself like Scott Morrison's adopted nickname) is the leader of the parliamentary Labor Party. He has a talented front bench, but it is difficult for many to get media attention. That said, in terms of the recent which politicains doing you trust/distrust survey, the ALP senate leader, Penny Wong, was rated 1, Albo was 2 and the Deputy ALP Leader, Tanya Plibersek. was 3.

Scott Morrison has made much of his personal channel to God, via his very close relationship with the founder of the Hillsong evangelical church Brian Houston. A relationship so close Morrison wanted Houston to be included on his White House invitation to meet the President of The United States of America.
But now this very close relationship has became inconvenient to say the very least.
Brian Houston was first criminally charged for concealing the sexual crimes of his father, and now been found to have on more then one occasion to have significsntly mishaved sexually himself.

Just because you do not like the mans religion, does that make him a bad person. Did Morrison have direct knowledge of the miss deeds of Brian Houston.

Just because i do not agree with the Hillsong Church and think they are a bit on the loopy side, but that being said he has more morals than than most

Dude where in that post is there any mention of not liking his religion, no where. Only today he said that he had not attended the Hillsong church in 15 years but was standing along Brain Houston in 2019 at the Hillsong Church conference. Like everything Morrison has touched in the last 3 year this has turned into shit and once again he is trying to distance himself from it.

https://www.theguardian.com/australia-n ... conference


The only thing keeping him afloat is the abysmal reporting of his performance by the media which is sadly forgotten by the electorate.

The problem is Scott Morrison is putting his religious beliefs over running the country.

For instance late last year when Covid cases were rising, RAT tests were in short supply and state borders were still closed instead of managing those problems he made it a priority to pass a Bill that would make discrimination by religious people legal. So a business owner could sack a gay employee if they claimed their religion was against homosexuality, or a religious school could expel trans students.

This was what Scott Morrison was trying to do, then Australia into a quasi Saudi Arabia.

Added to his other failures of floods, fires, vaccines, quarantine, sexual harassment in parliament......

It’s interesting to look at the affiliations of those most and least trusted in Australia:

Least trusted:

1. Scott Morrison - right wing Liberal party
2. Peter Dutton - right wing Liberal party
3. Barnaby Joyce - right wing National party
4. Pauline Hanson - right wing One Nation party
5. Craig Kelly - right wing UAP
6. Dominic Perrottet - right wing Liberal party
7. Angus Taylor - right wing Liberal party
8. Michaelia Cash - right wing Liberal party
9. Josh Frydenburg - right wing Liberal party
10. Matthew Guy - right wing Liberal party

And contrast that to the most trusted list:

1. Penny Wong - left wing Labor party
2. Anthony Albanese - left wing Labor party
3. Tanya Plibersek - left wing Labor party
4. Mark McGowan - left wing Labor party
5. Jacqui Lambie - independent
6. Adam Bandt - left wing Greens.

Hmmmmm can anyone see a pattern there.....

And it’s funny how despite what some posters have said:

Scott Morrison has made much of his personal channel to God, via his very close relationship with the founder of the Hillsong evangelical church Brian Houston. A relationship so close Morrison wanted Houston to be included on his White House invitation to meet the President of The United States of America.
But now this very close relationship has became inconvenient to say the very least.
Brian Houston was first criminally charged for concealing the sexual crimes of his father, and now been found to have on more then one occasion to have significsntly mishaved sexually himself.
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-03-24/ ... /100934680


And Scott Morrison came out today and blatantly lied about his links to Brian Houston.

He said he had not been to Houston’s church for “about 15 years”, but then footage emerged of Morrison and Houston together at a church service in 2019. He also tried to get an invitation for Houston to join him in a White House visit and meet Donald Trump around the same time.

This was well after Houston was known to have covered up child sex abuse in his church.

I don’t care if the RAN wants them, it’s beside the point, the real isssue is is this a sensible choice for the region, it’s a destabilising choice. The RAN don’t need to operate in the South China Sea. I also don’t like the idea of a Nuclear submarine base in the Tasman Sea. I honestly don’t believe they will end up buying them anyway.

Perhaps taking more interest and spending more money with it's closest neighbours PNG and the Solomon Islands rather then just being a very active player in their extractive industries, mining and timber, would give them a much better security outcome then buying, maintaining and manning more warships?

Just because i do not agree with the Hillsong Church and think they are a bit on the loopy side, but that being said he has more morals than than most


The problem is Scott Morrison is putting his religious beliefs over running the country.

For instance late last year when Covid cases were rising, RAT tests were in short supply and state borders were still closed instead of managing those problems he made it a priority to pass a Bill that would make discrimination by religious people legal. So a business owner could sack a gay employee if they claimed their religion was against homosexuality, or a religious school could expel trans students.

This was what Scott Morrison was trying to do, then Australia into a quasi Saudi Arabia.




Was the country and Parliament meant to stop all other issues brought before it because of Covid?

And besides the only way the bill can be passed was with ALP support in which they indicated that they would. It was not just a bill before the Federal Parliament to be debated the Berejiklian Government also introduced legislation make religion a protected attribute from discrimination. The bill had its foundations from the debate back in 2017 when same sex marriage was legalised. Victoria was also going to change its religious discrimination laws. all the while Covid was ravaging the country and states were doing the own thing in regards to Covid

And no business owners cannot sack a current gay employee, that would be discriminatory under the current labour laws, its only under exceptional circumstance would misconduct outside the workplace could they be fired, what the bill does do is give to say the catholic church not to employee people because it goes against there religious beliefs, the only real difference is that those people within the employment process can legally use the religious belief as a reason not to employ where as before if they found out prior they just told them they were not successful for the job.

Interesting polling released by Roy Morgan yesterday, showing Scott Morrison with the greatest distrust score of currently serving politicians and Penny Wong, followed
by Anthony Albanese with the highest trust scores https://www.roymorgan.com/findings/8933 ... 2203220543

Very pointedly, Clive Palmer had the highest distrust score, but is not a currently serving poliitician. The only currently serving UAP MP, Craig Kelly, had the 5th highest distrust score.


It’s interesting to look at the affiliations of those most and least trusted in Australia:

Least trusted:

1. Scott Morrison - right wing Liberal party
2. Peter Dutton - right wing Liberal party
3. Barnaby Joyce - right wing National party
4. Pauline Hanson - right wing One Nation party
5. Craig Kelly - right wing UAP
6. Dominic Perrottet - right wing Liberal party
7. Angus Taylor - right wing Liberal party
8. Michaelia Cash - right wing Liberal party
9. Josh Frydenburg - right wing Liberal party
10. Matthew Guy - right wing Liberal party

And contrast that to the most trusted list:

1. Penny Wong - left wing Labor party
2. Anthony Albanese - left wing Labor party
3. Tanya Plibersek - left wing Labor party
4. Mark McGowan - left wing Labor party
5. Jacqui Lambie - independent
6. Adam Bandt - left wing Greens.

Hmmmmm can anyone see a pattern there.....

And it’s funny how despite what some posters have said:

I was leaving people to look at the research themselves. What you haven't quite captioned is the factions within the Coalition, with Morrison's factions nominally slightly to the left of Dutton, who is considered hard right. There is currently a battle in NSW between the right and the hard right over pre-selections - a month before the likely elections date, and the NSW Libs have not confirmed pre-selections as there is a court battle between the factions.

Really that's the only place that Australia has an interest in, "Our foreign aid equates to roughly about 3 per cent of regional GDP"

It is only in the last few years that China is out spending money in the area, Australia simply cannot compete
Australia is in the position damned if it does and damned if it doesn't

https://devpolicy.org/the-indo-pacific- ... -20220325/

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-08-09/ ... 82702?nw=0

Between 2011 to 2017, Australian governments poured at least $US6.5 billion ($8.76 billion) into aid projects across the region.


The second and third biggest aid donors in total over the last few years have been China and New Zealand.

Both those nations gave roughly $US1.2 billion ($1.6 billion) to Pacific Island nations over the same period — roughly one sixth the amount Australia donated.


One has to wonder about Chinese intentions in "foreign aid"

Morrison could have pulled the states together using something called “leadership” which he lacks. John Howard managed to pull the states together in 1996 to support his gun control legislation despite some states not wanting to have it initially. But Morrison is a marketing guru not a leader. All spin no substance.

You got that right - if an employee is gay, trans, divorced, living with a partner outside of marriage, even some religions count disabled people as against their beliefs”. People who eat food against a religion, wear clothes against a religion, drink alcohol against a religion. It’s legalised discrimination on the basis of religion.


Do tell what were his failure's in the above areas


Failure to prepare Australia with water bombers despite being warned before black summer, having a Hawaiian holiday and only coming back to Australia when called out by the media for it, only appearing at disaster sites for photo ops, failure to order multiple types of vaccines so when AstraZeneca had its problems there wasn’t sufficient Pfizer available as a backup, failure to provide remote quarantine centres allowing the virus to spread in the community, failure to deal with climate action for far too long, failure to deal with people like Porter getting cash in a brown bag on their doorstep, and that’s just what’s off the top of my head.

I’d be more interested from Morrison supporters on why they think he’s done a good job and deserves re-election.

Gladys Berejiklian called him a horrible person, Barnaby Joyce called him a fraud and a liar. That’s what the senior members of his own Coalition think of him.

Irrespective that it being stopped in the senate, the ALP did support it that cannot be denied, there were a few in the coalition whom crossed the floor on the issue
The bill passed the House of Representatives with Labour’s support just after 4am on Thursday after more than 10 hours of debate.

I thought you'd decided you didn't trust either side? I still think your best option is to spoil your vote if you can't trust the Coalition or Labor.

I can't see anything positive in this term of Government that would attract a swinging voter to vote Liberal or National, and plenty to distrust, as the Roy Morgan polling suggests.

As long as you don't swing to UAP, who really have nothing to offer. You're better off voting Liberal or National (depnding on your home seat).

Whilst I agree Morrison and his party have copped undeserved blame on a couple of things, politics is still about optics. I stand by my statement that the Coalition has acheived little in this term that should attract a swining voter.

WRONG! Australian Constitution section 51 (ix) clearly states quarantine is a FEDERAL, not state responsibility.

It’s called international responsibility and not being eventually sanctioned and left out of international agreements. And your lack of concern for climate change is telling.

And Morrison could do something about that how?


You’re not concerned with federal ministers getting bribes from unidentified sources and a Prime Minister who has no concern about where they came from?

Still waiting for you to show where they can sack them for it the protected attributes under the Fair Work Act are:
Race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, family or carer's responsibilities, pregnancy, religion, political opinion, national extraction, social origin.

The problem here is you look in hindsight, the PM holiday would have been booked months in advance, we have bushfires in Australia all the time at the time of departure the fires were not that significant from fires in years gone by.

I agree it was not a good look, but a couple of weeks ago he was condemned for not having the media around for a visit to flood in Brisbane, you can’t have it both ways
Also, the video in question illustrates that the community did raise its concerns about the lack of equipment for that area and the responsibilities of the state government, if he told a few home truths in that he would have been condemned for insensitivity, it’s a fine line when inspecting these areas

Bit a long bow to suggest that we could have had it earlier when it was first clear for use by the UK in December2020 and then it was only to be used on a emergency basis
Even the Pro ABC put Chris Bowen pours cynicism on the ALP claim about the vaccine roll out

WRONG! Australian Constitution section 51 (ix) clearly states quarantine is a FEDERAL, not state responsibility.

For international arrivals, but not domestic quarantine, once the government closed the borders it became a matter for state health authorities, Also the states struck a deal with the federal government to run quarantine hotels because they required federal government support for the state economies

A lot of fallacies. First off as multiple fire chiefs warned 2019/20 was going to be a bad season and said the federal government needs to buy water bombers, which they failed to do. The 19/20 season had started in WINTER!, and by November firefighters were finding traditional control methods were not effective, even before summer hit. Secondly the fires before Christmas were bad enough, in November, he should have been aware of this. Thirdly he didn’t tell anyone he was leaving, no official statement, he said he told Albanese but Albanese later said that was a lie. Lastly when he was spotted in Hawaii and came back “as fast as he could” because of “bad optics” it was revealed he had spent a day or two extra there, and there were multiple flights he could have returned on that he skipped. Don’t tell me the Prime Minister can’t get back on the first available flight.

It wasn’t just a good look, it was downright assault (he touched the firefighters hand after specifically being told not to)

The federal government didn’t keep up with its NAFC commitments like the states did. The ALP had promised a fleet of water bombers at the 2019 election; and has proposed a national civilian disaster agency. The federal government can provide a lot of assistance in national emergencies, as long as the right party is in charge.

They did this because they they knew they could blame leaky quarantine hotel breakouts on state governments (well ALP ones at least). But there have been federally run quarantine centres (Howard Springs) and the Liberals should have built more.

You can’t just deflect and deny away the obvious failings of the Coalition government anymore. They’ve failed Australia over the last 9 years (especially the last 3) and have no vision or policy agenda for the future. Morrison is an ad guru with no substance.

Yes I do understand what you are saying, personally I not fussed as long as the person is qualified, but those religious body do have faith and belief and having someone whom holds the same beliefs within its teachings and institutions

Again it’s the religious institutions that want people within that hold the same beliefs that they do. I understand both sides of the arguments, it’s the same that business or corporation can apply for selective gender discrimination, Fernwood fitness for example is for women only

It’s not a federal responsibility to buy water bombing tankers. It’s a state responsibility

Again that is up to the states to manage its preventive bushfire programs.

It didn’t stop the NSWG from finding the funds to buy a 737 water bomber did it, funny that hey

It would be common knowledge inside government that the PM would be going on holidays, his travel itinerary would not be made public for security reasons,

Again if he were to be there an extra couple of days, it is dependant on when he could get a flight I’m not going say he could or could not have got, if he traveled by RAAF VIP flight that is different. If the PM arrived in Australia two days prior could he have done anymore than what was being done?

Irrespective if Albo knew or there are systems in place that allows for contingency such as this. This was solely about optics in the media

Agree one is well know, what you fail to realise is that was his job and portfolio being NSW Emergency Services Minister, and no the PM does not have more power in this, his role is to provide federal resources across government agencies to cut red tap in a time of state/ national emergency and to provide ADF help where they can, the ADF do have a limited amount of dual use equipment the ADF is not equipped to fight bushfires

It’s also interesting to note that it was the Coalition that set up NAFC

Easy to talk the talk, but on past experience the ALP when in power do not walk the walk.

It’s also noted in the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements

“As we note many times throughout our report, state and territory governments have primary responsibility – and accountability – for emergency management. We do not propose this should change.”

“8.32 We heard that it would not be ‘practical, sensible or cost-effective’ for any one state or territory to maintain all the necessary specialised aerial assets to address all its possible aerial firefighting needs. NAFC is responsible for ‘providing a cooperative national arrangement for the provision of aerial firefighting resources for combating bushfires’. NAFC performs this function by leasing a fleet of specialised aerial firefighting aircraft on behalf of the states’ and territories’ emergency services.”

Can’t find anything to back up your claim, can you provide a link but that also would not have been achieved anyway as I said before the EU suspended deliveries to Australia of vaccine

Nope, the states were not forced to do anything. The states wanted its quid pro would as they knew they were going to need massive financial assistance to keep its own economy up, the federal government as easily ran the hotels. Lots of cruise ships could have been hired as floating quarantine accomodation

A101,

I’m not going to continue responding to your massive posts as you are going around in circles spinning Morrison’s failures away, but it seems for the most part you try and shift responsibility away from Morrison as the PM for most things. The state government took up responsibility for a lot of things because the federal government simply refused to.

One of the defining marks of leadership is taking responsibility for all things you can influence. Morrison has not and will not take responsibility. He shifts blame, shirks tasks, passes the buck but is willing to inject himself into photo ops to take credit as much as possible.

Over time Australians have seen through him. The Scott Morrison Australians know now is different to the relatively unknown experience they had of him in 2019. Along with the ALP running a better campaign this time.

Look at the recent South Australian election. The Liberal Premier Steven Marshall did a relatively good job during the pandemic and was reasonably liked but still lost the election convincingly. The only reason I can think of for this is his Liberal brand association with Morrison and the Federal Liberals.

Paul Murray on Sky News! Probably the biggest right wing Morrison sycophant in Australian media today. He's basically a Liberal party PR mouthpiece.

As for Murray's points, most of it was just smug gloating about the 2019 election. The polls have changed since November, Albanese has drawn level with Morrison on preferred leader polling.

Don't forget Sky News was the channel that said Donald Trump was "definitely" going to win the 2020 US election and the "leftists" were going to be crying. Someone had better remind Paul Murray of these videos on his channel:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gsazo9LVog0

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cjyaNK-hAc

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=utTQa2HQdh0

It's funny looking back at them being so smug and so confident Trump would win.

In comparison to the arrogance of Sky News I'm not going to say the ALP will "Definitely" win the 2022 Australian Federal election. They certainly deserve to, and the polls have them leading at this point. But when 70% of newspapers in Australia are ruled by Rupert Murdoch we know a biased media campaign can turn the sway of the vote, and I expect a vicious anti-ALP campaign to help Morrison during this election cycle.

If the best you can do is quote a far right news channel that was 100% convinced Trump was going to win the 2020 election (and then spread stolen election conspiracies rather than admit they were wrong)......

Overall, we rate Sky News Australia Right-Biased based on story selection and editorial positions that mostly favor the right. We also rate them borderline Questionable and Mixed for factual reporting due to several failed fact checks, unproven claims, and the promotion of conspiracy theories and misinformation.

Not asking about whether media correctly predicted if trump was going to win the last US presidential election and you were the only one to bring that up why?

You have made a number of claims about the current federal government when are you going to substantiate them?

FYI the video i link was asking are the ALP making the same mistakes as the last election with Bill Shorten, that election the media also said the election was unlosable

I’d like for you to point out which media declared the election as “unloseable” prior to the 2019 election, because I’m having trouble finding any major ones that said that.

As opposed to Sky News Australia whom you use as a source, their last election prediction (not only a prediction, they directly said Trump Will Win) turned out spectacularly wrong.

There’s fundamental differences between 2019 and 2022, with the Australian people having seen Morrison’s response to several crises and the ALP running a better campaign.

Of course that doesn’t include the usual anti-ALP media campaign during the election campaign, plus tomorrow’s budget, no doubt the “small government” Liberals will splash out cash and cut taxes, and no one will mention the debt, 3 times higher than when Labor were in power when all we heard was “Labor’s Debt and Deficit Disaster!”
