The Coalition had relatively good numbers this week from Essential Research, but unchanged ones from Newspoll. The first of these is cancelled out by the fading impact of the Coalition’s improved result from the post-budget poll from Ipsos, so BludgerTrack once again goes nowhere this week. Newspoll’s leadership numbers have the net approval trends improving for Malcolm Turnbull but deteriorating for Bill Shorten, but the opposite is true on preferred prime minister, so take your pick really.

Among the predictions…

Chart P2 shows the expected map for 2017 which can be compared with 2015 & 2010. The Lib Dems would be wiped out in England with both Tim Farron and Nick Clegg losing their seats to the Conservatives & Labour respectively. The Conservatives would also unseat the leader of the SNP in the Commons by taking the seat of Moray.

What was cut off was:
If true it says that the English leader ofLabour is more popular among young scots than the right wing idiots that run SLab.

That’s a London Press conspiracy.

The poll for The Times put Labour on 41 per cent ahead of the SNP’s 40 per cent among 18-24-year-olds.

Swamprat will declare this an English Press conspiracy.

BC, I noticed you were referring to diesel trains in your posts. All the fast trains I’ve travelled on (e.g. TGV, Shinkansen, ICE) are electric. Are you specifying diesel just because the tracks aren’t electrified, or for some other reason? If the former, is it worth electrifying them in the long term. Obviously there are some tracks it will never be worth doing (e.g. the Adelaide–Darwin railway, the Trans-Australia railway). Just to explain a little further. The end game would be full HSR from Olympic Park to Broadmeadow/Gosford/Tarro. This would be an electric train. The interim fast train requires a… Read more »

World Energy Issues Monitor 2017 – Exposing the New Energy Realities As the Grand Energy Transition fast becomes a reality, the minds of global energy leaders are becoming increasingly focussed on long term trends that threaten existing economic and business models rather than concerns about short term risks. Issues that will dictate the speed and the breadth of the energy transition rise to the top of the global energy agenda as government and corporate take stock of the impacts and opportunities that arise as the world goes down a path of increased decarbonisation. This includes regional integration, climate framework, electric… Read more »

Google “World Energy Sources” and find that google runs out of hits at page 7 without worldenergy.org getting a mention

I think the best estimate I’ve seen is for a Talgo class vehicle (200Km/hr diesel tilt train)

Davidwh,

This article speaks volumes for the credibility of the World Energy Council (who you just used as a source).

hmmm….

Labour are one point ahead of the Scottish National Party among young voters in Scotland, according to the latest YouGov poll.

The poll for The Times put Labour on 41 per cent ahead of the SNP’s 40 per cent among 18-24-year-olds.

It also put the Conservatives on 9 per cent among young voters.

greensborough growler @ #1562 Tuesday, June 6, 2017 at 11:10 pm goudengans @ #1561 Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 – 11:09 pm Greensborough Growler I never said there was a decline. I said that you can’t project an increase from those statistics, and that website that Player One posted before also hows a flat line in the United States. A 4.5% increase from the absolute lowest point on the disaster does not mean there will be growth in the future – if there is more capacity coming online then it will grow. I’m not exactly saying anything controversial here, am I??… Read more »
