I take it you are still not going to substantiate your earlier claims, I can then show you articles before the 2019 election referencing the unlosable election for Bill Shorten for which you want substantiated
I guess you did not read the post to well than did you;
House prices in Canberra risen 52% since the start of the pandemic whilst prices in Sydney have risen 33% which means the housing market is hotter in Canberra than Sydney,
All that without the fast train project
I’m talking about raw house prices, not short term growth.
No, you were not, you were trying to point the blame for housing affordability onto the current federal government ignoring the fundamentals of why prices have increased dramatically of which I pointed out earlier, (supply and demand and low interest rates and 1st home owner grants)
There have been sales within the inner Newcastle suburbs in excess of a million dollars, is that affordable for a 1st home buyer?
And then you said;
The catch being a fast train to Newcastle will probably cause the price of housing to take off there too, enriching the property industry and further destroying the ambitions of a whole generation
Which has proven to be false as housing prices in the Hunter region have increased on average of 32.5% on par with Sydney, Newcastle itself has risen 28% a rate of increase only surpassed in 1989 when they increased by 35% will you blame that on PM Bob Hawke after all it was a ALP Prime Minister at the time
You also said
In fact it wouldn’t surprise me if the main goal for the fast train is to quickly bring Sydney property prices to places like Newcastle and eventually Canberra, Wollongong etc
Is that your inherit bias on show, remember that is also a policy of the Federal ALP to build a fast train to Newcastle and Canberra, so by association from what you are saying above that the ALP wants to see that happen as well
The largest growth in house prices last year was in Hobart, of course the raw house price there is much less than Sydney and therefore more affordable
Raw house prices are not just an indication of affordability its measured on % of income to repayment and disposable income which puts people into mortgage stress, the current record of low interest rates and lenders willingness has left open the possibility of a market correction when interest rates rise and people moving into negative equity with a possibility of oversupply on the market and mortgagee sales in the future
Anyway did you see Liberal Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells absolutely tear apart Scott Morrison, her own leader, tonight? Calling him an "an autocrat" and "a bully with no moral compass“?
No didn’t see it, didn’t watch the budget either, but good on her just goes to show that people can voice an opinion good or bad on their leaders, nothing unusual in that happened to ALP PM Gillard in her term of office when Labour Senator Trish Crossin lashed out in regards to preselection with Nova Peris when she also was going to an election, always going to be winners and losers when doing battle for elections its been going on since federation in 1901, the old saying you cant please all the people all the time
How can he deny the Liberals are in disarray, now that the members of his own party are openly destroying him?
Seems you are looking for confirmation bias
Given her attack how can any reasonable Australian cast a vote for the Liberal party?
Because most people will see it for what it was, an attack because she didn’t get the result she wanted, when you drill down into it.
From your own link
The conservative senator from New South Wales will leave politics at the next election after being placed in an unwinnable position on the party's Senate ticket.
