Re: The SA Politics Thread

I'm not against democracy or voting when done correctly. However, the country is full of uneducated people though and I think we need to re-educate the populace in understanding how our nation runs and what is needed so they know what they're actually voting for. Rather then trusting what Rupert is...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

The reason I am interested in the internal politics of the parties is that that is where the next member is effectively chosen. Spence (in this example) is a very safe Labor seat. It's highly unlikely to change to Liberal or SA-BEST no matter what candidates are put up.That means the ALP internals,...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

You're surprised? Have either of you not read my posts explaining why. He needs literally every single vote he can get, and if that means backing a Minister who has lost a no confidence motion, he's still gonna do it. The Governor acts on the advice of the Premier. The Premier has not advised the G...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

I guess Vicki is learning what conservative politicians do when backed into a corner.

So essentially we have a four month caretaker government.

[PRO] Re: Glen Osmond/Fullarton Road Intersection Upgrade | $35m

The intersection is dodgy, so agreed it needs an upgrade, but this just seems like a very small band aid.

Surely the issue with the SE Freeway onto Glen Osmond with the whole route from there into the city needing to be reviewed

I gave to say, two lawyers having cracks at each other is always great reading.

No holding back here.

Re: The SA Politics Thread

I expect that Nationally it's going to be climate and trust The question then comes around what happens in QLD and who knows with Palmer. I still think Morrison has lost enough small m Liberals and most city dwellers to lose it, rather than Albanese winning it (although it the last TV interview I sa...

Re: The SA Politics Thread

Way off the mark. Both races can go either way. They will be incredibly tight. 2PP polls are misleading as it is reflective of the whole race. Our system doesn't consider the whole race, it comes down to individual seats, and they're a lot closer than 2PP suggests. Hung parliaments likely at both l...

I've bought tickets

They had to be in the Western Stand, so I assume reduced capacity?

Re: The SA Politics Thread

I reckon it's going to be an interesting 2022 for SA politics. Libs are going to be wiped out (what's left of them) on a State Level and I'd be stunned if Morrison can hold on. So it's going to be Labor /Labor for the first time in a while. Do we think that will give us some more political clout? Se...
