  1. This site applies text analysis to Hansard transcript data to estimate the complexity of politicians’ language.


    To save you the trouble...

    Abbott is year 10 standard, Gillard is year 11.
    And for all my fellow members of the electorate of Wills - our local member Kelvin Thomson is year 12.

    It doesn't work for Senators unfortunately so we can't get some of the true nutters like Barnaby Joyce or Cory Bernardi and it's state only.

  2. perhaps that's the level they think they need to talk down to us?

    .....nah. nobody ever said you had to be clever to be a politician.
  3. As the saying used to go.......pay peanuts you get monkeys, now we are paying a fortune and I don,t think the latest mob are as smart as monkeys !!!.
