BludgerTrack: 53.1-46.9 to Labor

The weekly poll aggregate finds the latest Newspoll result checking the Coalition's modest poll recovery, and drives Tony Abbott's personal ratings to a new low.

The Coalition’s mildly improving polling trend over the past few weeks has taken a knock after the latest bad result from Newspoll, contributing to a 0.5% two-party shift in Labor’s favour on the BludgerTrack poll aggregate. On the state-level seat projection, the big move this week is a three-seat shift to Labor in Queensland, where the Labor swing had probably been a bit undercooked on recent readings, along with one-seat gains in New South Wales and Western Australia. However, Labor is down a seat in Victoria after a blowout in their favour last week and also down one in Tasmania, resulting in a net gain of three. Newspoll also provided a new set of leadership ratings this week, which have pushed Tony Abbott out to his worst net personal approval rating since the election. Other figures on voting intention were provided this week by Essential Research, ReachTEL and Morgan. Full results as always on the sidebar.

BK. I can’t agree with you about Cowdery’s article being “thoughtful”. I see it as an attempt at face saving. This is the guy who was heavily critical of the A-G for bowing to media pressure and mounting an appeal against the sentence and was adamant that the trial judge was best placed to make the call and his view should not be overturned. (See the article by Cowdery I linked to a few pages back). Now Cowdery is arguing that the appeal result proves the system works and the media should have stayed out of it. The only consistent… Read more »

I wouldn’t give the time of day to Morrison. I’d cross the road and wave my genitals in his general direction. Todd? I’d worry if he said it was his shout.

Before I clicked that link, I actually thought it was gonna be someone from Cronulla. Right suburb, wrong guy.

If you had to pick one of Todd Carney or Scott Morrison to spend an hour drinking with at your local, who would you pick?

Great article for liberal voters to think about (and from Tasmania!)

Night all!

There’s something really… unpleasant about people who salivate at the thought of prisoners – elderly pedophiles or otherwise – getting beaten, raped or tortured in prison. Confinement by the state is the punishment here, prisoner-on-prisoner savagery should not be applauded or expected.

Read the following report. It’s slightly out of date (published 2001) but is simply harrowing in every way. I hope prisons here never turn into the charnel houses of the USA.

[Which is the worst sort of person
a. A person who is stupid but doesn’t know it
b. A person who is stupid and knows it
c. A person who is stupid and likes to show their stupidity as often as they can
d. A person who pretends to be stupid and shows this pretend stupidity at every opportunity]

Reminds me of this

When you’re dead, you don’t know it; the only people to suffer are those around you.

It’s the same when you are stupid.

They have facilities for sick people. Didn’t Ronnie Biggs die in custody, in some sort of nursing home?

Does anyone remember that BBC program which showed Rolf Harris painting the Queen? She was posing for it and she seemed really cranky. He tried small talk with Her Maj and she was quite short with him. He said something about patting the corgis and she “No, they will bite.”
She didn’t seem to like him one little bit.

No drama Phil.

Carlton uses one of my favourite expressions: “It was bank robbery, with the bank doing the robbing.”

This has for a long time been the most common form of bank robbery and the proceeds of crime that the banks have enjoyed have far exceeded any pittance stolen from them.

I’m with Phil. Wright’s article makes no sense to me. “A settled colony” comes about when the Europeans arrive, but that has no bearing on whether there were non-colonial indigenous “settlements” before that arrival.

If Australia is not a clear enough example, look at America. Indigenous settlements, overtaken by a colonial power with its own settlments.
