    yeah no doubt the light rail caused big issues there.
    (my mate owns a business in the same area so ive been hearing his stories for years).

    another big factor is the slump in the housing market in Newcastle. A huge amount of scheduled work has been delayed or abandoned on residential buildings in the CBD over the past 2 years. Some genius thought putting up tower after tower of pretty low grade dog boxes and charging top dollar for them was going to work.

    this was supposed to bring people into the city centre and revitalise the local businesses. council and state govt were shocking in their planning letting all the DA's go at once.

    thats ok, our new 5 star hotel will solve everything. imagine paying good money to stay in the damn council building.

    In his absence, a new agent has been given the moniker 007. This new agent happens to be female and black.
    But no, she isnt playing 'Bond' she just has Bonds serial number.
    Sure as shit though she'll be smoking hot and white Bond will shag her.



    thats a win/win, Daniel Craig is a hunky looking man.
    Lashana Lynch is the other name being thrown around. Is that the one you are referring too here ?

    This poor AOC lady has no ****ing idea who shes picked a fight with. Hes way too smart for her, not that she helps herself at all. She should be the future of the party, but you can also see her political career end in tatters before shes even qualified to run for President.

    Also, whether the tweets were 'racist' or not, you are allowed to criticise people of colour and ethnicity. The problem is that everyone has descended this conversation into a "racist/not racist" argument when the real question should have been are these tweets appropriate toward a fellow elected official.

    the boy has cried wolf too many times and its worn thin. Democrats are fighting a losing battle here. Again, they should go back to policy and attack him there, but nope, the ego of 'winning' the twitter fight has derailed them all.

    You know the racist tweet was to divert attention away from Trumpfs links to Epstein's "Lolita Express", i.e. a big group of rich people ****ing child prostitutes.. was released almost exactly when the links to Trump were made.

    Yeah, she's supposedly got the role as of right now. Idris Elba turned it down do they decided to go down the same path and open the role up anyway.

    oh man, you know ain't nothing coming of this. the first bloke up against the wall if this ever blows up is Bill Clinton, and even the Dems aren't giving him up in order to get to Trump.

    Future of the party??

    FMD

    She is what happens when you elect the woke left

    As soon as they open their mouths they are bound to say something stupid and she doesn't disappoint

    Wouldn't surprise me at all if she was a planted official for the Republican party

    Her and the Muslim Senator Ilhan Omar are between them doing a better job of getting Republican party reelected for the next 50 years than any one on the conservative side has done in the last 100

    It is really what is always bound to happen with leftists
    Their policies are all about their feelings
    And when policies are about feelings then logic goes out the window and you look stupid

    They are absolutely the future of the party.
    You said it yourself, they run policy based on feelgood, and politicians in general are that spineless that in public they just agree with the loonies then grant them power because if you dont you're automatically racist/homophobic/elitist etc.

    It happened with the Labor party in both Britain and Australia, and will happen to the US version of it.


    Problem is, the general public will nod along with all the social feelgood to make themselves look like they care, but as soon as they get the advantage of the anonymity of the ballot box, they go back to self interest.

    aint no one giving up their hard earned for refugees or climate change. get the **** outta here.
    Morrison just proved that.


    Dems are on a bad bad trajectory here.

    Can't wait until the Libs go to an election offering to scrap income tax. More money in everyone's pockets. Seems like the logical end game.

    Most people would have been better off without the tax cuts. But trying to explain comparative advantage, absolute advantage, and basic macro economics to the Australian public is essentially impossible.

    The amount of bad information out there from the right and the left is rather overwhelming. Wikipedia as an example is the new Encyclopedia Britannica - neither of which anyone interested in facts would piss on.

    People don't realise it but a lot of their economic / political knowledge comes from watching TV Dramas. I'm not sure if it's intentional or not - but there appears to be a strong neo-liberal flavour about a lot of the information portrayed as "factual" on so called "entertainment" or "drama" programs.

    thats exactly what just happened yeah?
    Libs focused on how much money Labor gonna take from you*, Shorten told you all the cool and good things he was gonna spend it on.

    Voters chose themselves.
    Libs would love it if that was the playbook every cycle, they'd walk it in.

    But you are under the impression that this left wing ideology will triumph

    I don't see it that way

    Labor Parties in UK and Oz Democrats in US are about to see an eternal winter of gloom

    Their stupidity hooking their wagons to leftist ideology

    The world is wakening up to their tricks


    You want to see how out of touch the ALP is then look at their stance with Folau. If this is a straight up employment contract issue then the ALP with their union ties should be all over this issue as it is an alleged core principle with which the ALP were founded on
    Instead we have crickets from them as they have hitched their wagon to the rainbow nazi wagon instead

    Conservatives will keep winning because they are at least true to their actual identity

    You misunderstand me. I don't mean give a slight reduction in income tax. I mean scrap it. Why bother having it at all? Everyone will have loads of money. It'll be great.

    The $AUD and income tax arrangements are linked. Without the $AUS governments can't transfer goods and services between the private and public sphere - and without income taxes you cannot create demand / force people to use that currency.

    Another currency would need to be adopted much like in tax free havens where they tend to use the same currency as their major trading partners [Euro, $US, and so on].

    Once that happens the government of the day basically loses its sovereignty and becomes a lap dog for who ever controls the currency they adopted.
