  1. Who would rather see as Prime Minister?


    Do NOT talk politics. nobody cares.
  2. I have a bad feeling about this thread. Although barring Stoner I can't see there being too many passionate supporters of any of those options.
  3. ...where's Batman?! This is BLASPHEMY!
  4. You have to work which one of them is batman...
  5. I dont care as long as its not Eddiie McGuire.
  6. As if voting wasn't hard enough...
  7. Someone who's actually run a decent-sized business, not a law firm or a trade union.
  8. This is the only reason why I'm not a citizen of Aus. I cherish my right to not vote.

    And looking at the available options, I think it's the best one.
  9. Correct me if I'm wrong (and I may be since I've never voted here), but doesn't one vote for a party, not an actual person? So couldn't a party conceivably decide to put a totally different PM in place if they were voted in?

    Anyway, nobody. I'm going to attempt to go the rest of my life without voting for anyone in a political contest.
  10. Voting is optional in Australia.
  11. All they will hear is "CHA-CHING!" from all your fines. Unless you never enrolled.
  12. Not currently a citizen here. When/if I become one, I'll show up to vote if I am so required, write "PENISES" in large text over the ballot, and toss it into the box.
  13. Every election I draw a giant phallus on my ballot paper. Every time some cock gets voted in.

    The system works. :)
  14. So you're the b*stard responsible for all those dicks getting in!
  15. you didn't add turnbull, but as for who I'd vote for ? None of them they are all scumbags
  16. The fine for not voting is only $20 . Voting shouldn't be compulsory anyway so only people who are interested in voting do so. Public servants, students, prisoners and people on welfare shouldn't get a vote anyway, they don't pay the bills.
  17. I see Blabber has become Netrider's CowboyNeal option. :D
