We’re now at the end of a two-week period where Essential Research has furnished the only new federal poll results, causing its reading of the situation to loom unusually large in the BludgerTrack poll aggregate. This week’s sample produced a fairly close result, so Labor is down half a point on two-party preferred and three on the seat projection, losing one in Queensland and two in Western Australia, where it may be coming back to earth after the state election bounce. Nothing new this week on leadership ratings.

confessions @ #734 Sunday, June 18, 2017 at 9:03 pm Mark Latham has completely lost the plot. I mean, seriously, WTF? Real Mark Latham‏ @RealMarkLatham 1h1 hour ago Time to elect our judges in Australia. Let the people decide on law enforcement. Rid all states of elite time-serving Leftie judges. Real Mark Latham‏ @RealMarkLatham 1h1 hour ago Well done @HumanHeadline in standing up for the rights of parliament over unelected, Left-wing, elitist, arrogant Victorian judiciary. As if we needed conformation that Latham was off the planet. Who in their right mind would even think electing judges was a good idea.… Read more »

By the SUPREME COURT ACT 1986, and does not specify a penalty. They would have to receive the one year + penalty, and then they are ineligible to sit as MPs.

Just on S44(ii) says any person who ” is attainted of treason, or has been convicted and is under sentence, or subject to be sentenced, for any offence punishable under the law of the Commonwealth or of a State by imprisonment for one year or longer; or..”

confessions @ #773 Sunday, June 18, 2017 at 9:44 pm So no change in Newspoll, and all that AGW denying blather about electricity supply has fallen on deaf ears. You’d think this mob would catch a clue. Sigh… Since the numpty doesn’t read anything I post, I have been hoping someone else would point out to her that reducing GHGE from power generation is inextricably linked to reducing GHGE overall. Further, unreliable power is unacceptable so renewables need to be engineered into the system to replace coal. You can’t blithely talk about reducing GHGE without looking at how it will… Read more »

Nice to see that further incremental movement of Labor’s primary vote up to 37%.

But people are moving away from Labor to the Greens and minor parties of course, under the unpopular leader Bill Shorten.

The date is 15/6/17, 9:06 am.

Thats the Friday of the case. I may have only become aware of it tonight but Uhlman knew why the ministers were going before the court. Thus pause is operative word.

Turnbull and Shorten have the same approval-disapproval, 32-55. A first?

We can say that Brian didn’t make any new friends in the last three weeks. Seeing as Brian is in desperate need of some new friends that’s not a good result for him. 14 Newspolls now Brian. Bit of a pattern wouldn’t you say?

Brian Trumble has thrown everything he’s got at Labor for no movement in the polls, and we’re yet to see the impact of Your Rights at Work mk2, Conski 2.0, corporate tax cuts etc. The federal L/NP are on track for a dose of what the WA Liberals just got.

Re. The judges, suppose they were elected. Would Jones & co show respect to a judge that was ‘left wing’?

The Smear enumerates what they think happened over the last 2 weeks “The poll comes after the government released a controversial report from Chief Scientist Alan Finkel on a clean energy target, unveiled stricter citizenship laws and edged closer to a deal in the Senate on an $18.6 billion school funding package. The period since the last Newspoll also included the terrorist attack in London and the dispute over parole laws between Mr Turnbull and Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, after the siege in Melbourne where convicted criminal and accused terrorist Yacub Khayre killed a man and took a sex worker… Read more »

Well 53-47 seems pretty solid.

Of course the major point of interest for the media will be the approval ratings.

Guytaur:

I don’t think the Je Suis tweet is a sacking offence. He tweeted it days ago and there’s been no mention of it other than from yourself. As a journalist I imagine that tweet simply endears him further to his journalist brethren than anything else.
