Soooo Surely the MAIN point here is not about a swing away from the major parties It is that there is clearly a shift away from the far right And toward decency and the environment #AusVotes22

You are truly the most vile human being. A purveyor of fear, racism and division. Today is the end of your government and it’s reign of lies. We have had enough of the cruelty, hate and inhumanity your government has overseen. Good riddance to you all.#AusVotes22 #AusVotes22

Anyone heard of any new global pandemic causing viruses that it might possibly be…? 🤔 Nope, definitely the dogs then. 🐶 😷

The mainstream media has spent more time reporting "stumbles" and "gaffes" than the widespread corruption and rorting that's happened over the last 9 years.

- At beginning when there were thousands of cases in China and China was reacting with speed, people said, "no human to human spread". WHO's own lead rep on the ground noted you could draw conclusions from how firmly China was responding.

Spud : Spuddle : Spuddled! @PeterDutton_MP
A brief reminder that to 'spuddle' (17th century) is to work feebly and ineffectively, because your mind is either somewhere else, or hasn't yet shifted into gear.

What has Labor ever done for us, apart from 8hr day, job safety, overtime, maternity leave, equality laws, superannuation, Medicare, social security, stability in Pacific, surplus funds, car manufacturing, emission reduction.. but apart from that, what has Labor ever done for us!

“After we ruled out all the various possibilities, the common denominator in all the cases we found was that all had come down with the coronavirus around three and a half months before the infection appeared,” Mozer-Glassberg said. haaretz.com/israel-news/ever…

Australia was in the Vietnam War for ten years. Just over 500 Australians died. 5000 Australians have died of Covid in the past 5 months.

Last month Mr Morrison said “I talk to Pacific leaders every single week and that is what ensures that we can block the incursion into our region.” Mr Morrison is quick to claim credit but he never takes responsibility.

Are we still saying the increase in liver problems in young children is a mystery? How many more mysterious serious impacts will our kids have to endure thanks to the “learn to live with it” approach? Under 5s are not vaccinated. They have no chance. How is this okay? 😢

Tonight @AlboMP showed Australia that he is a leader who will bring the country together. He is authentic. He is empathetic. He has a plan for a better future. Mr Morrison showed us how out of touch he is.

The debate tonight on foxtel sums up Australia. Who cares if half the population can't watch.

Disgraceful that the debate isn’t available for all voters to view. How are we supposed to make an informed choice when we don’t get all the information? Especially when you can’t trust the MSM for fair, unbiased representation of the candidates.
Tonight the two men who are vying to be the Australian Prime Minister, post 21 May, are going head to head in their first debate, which is being broadcast on a privately owned and partisan network but not on one of our two free to air public broadcasters ... Why?

I cannot believe the disregard for under 5s! Yes, they might get mild symptoms, but long COVID is a thing and these kids have potentially 80 years of consequences ahead. Is that what you really want for your kids? With something as simple as a mask to help prevent? Insane!
Let's be really clear about what is happening at this stage in the pandemic: We are giving up on public health and embracing the privatization of health in ways that serve the able and young & write off anyone vulnerable. 1/
