2018 Victorian State Election

Post by grassy1 » Sun Nov 18, 2018 12:09 pm

Hopefully,I can hear the Green Machine,if I can get an ABC Channel at the Pub next Saturday.On the other hand,I might just watch Dirty Harry’s Last Movie. :lol:

But failing that and leading up to it,some opinions here from all sides of the political fence wouldn’t go astray.

What will happen to Dan The Man and his Government?

Dan will get back in. There isn’t enough angst against his government yet. Apart from the East/West link and how he pushed sky rail onto residents with no notification his big projects have been solid.

Guy isn’t cutting through and apart from law and order he doesn’t get his message across.

My prediction is the ALP will win with a similar majority.

Latest polling has Labor up 54-46 2PP...which would see the. Increase their majority over the LNP, even if they do lose a couple of inner city seats to the Greens which they are a chance to.

Apparently,the Herald Sun has rooted for the Coslition in Every Election since the Merger in the early 90’s,Of The Sun and The Herald.

No Bias there,you Right Wing Whinging Twits!Oh,that’s right!It’s not funded by Taxpayers!

From what I remember from the basic rules of writing an article,Bias is Bias!It’s Wrong!

But,NEVER was there any mention of whether an opinion piece was Public,or Private!

SHAME ON YOU RUPERT!

Coalition got an absolute flogging. The Greens got smacked as well.

Must admit, I was absolutely critical of VIC Labor for so long due to promising so much but delivering nought. Andrews actually got on with things and had made significant improvements to transport infrastructure. Well done. Election victory thoroughly deserved.

Wow, that was a belting. That result pretty much means that Labor will win the next election in 4 years. In seats like Carrum, Frankston and Cranbourne that the Libs had to win the swing to Labor was massive.

As much as I’m not a fan of Dan, he does what he says he is going to do.

Such a result in Victoria,will embolden the WA Labor Government here to Crash through or Crash.

They have a Smashing Majority here,but that doesn’t give them the right to Treat the Liberal Voting Western Suburbs like Shit,in forcing Unwanted High Density Residential enclaves.

That’s fine in new areas,but it’s completely inappropriate for the Western Suburbs,as they are totally without character in older areas.

The planning Minister(Rita Saffiotti) is being a Total Madam with her Bullshit about Nimbyism and I for one,intend to give her a serve on the Radio tomorrow morning,not once,but twice.
:evil:

The state of the Coalition ain’t great here,after deservedly getting tossed out of office,but McGowan’s Election Night Rubbish about Government for all Western Australians rings hollow and if his lot get too arrogant,maybe they’ll become a 1 term Government.

I thought Andrews would get elected with an increased majority, but I never thought it would be such a rout! :shock:

I direct you to Queensland as evidence 4 years is a long time between elections.
