Yet Abbott has stuck to his guns so far on his wasteful sweetener of paid maternity leave for the entitled generation, which is in effect welfare for the wealthy, like the more generous funding the Libs like to give to private schools than to public schools!

I submit that three types of people traditionally vote 'Lay-Bah'(Labor) and always will.
1/ Losers ie those under-achievers/Layabouts who have never amounted to anything and expect others (see Taxpayers) to GIVE them ('Gratis') what they seriously believe is 'rightfully' theirs.
2/ So called 'Intellectuals' and 'Academics' typically being Tweed jacketed, pipe smoking, bearded Dorks who profess to know all - especially what is 'best' for 'us' mere mortals.(My definition of an 'Intellectual/Academic' is a person who has been educated beyond their intelligence)
3/ Those who proudly proclaim - "I wuz Bawnta voad Lay-bah cos' that what my parents (both failures)'Taught' me to do - you see I don't have a brain of my own".

I suggest that such people compromised most of the 34% primary vote and that my dear friends is a worry recalling Winston Churchill's observation that you only need talk to the 'average'(see 'Lay-Bah' voter) person in the street for 5 minutes (I venture much less) to see the fundamental problem with democracy.

Why do you think they counted your vote. The election result was called before the first vote was counted. It's easy for them now when the press is in your back pocket.
Murdoch has been caught rigging polls.
You want a facist state where anyone who disagrees with you is not australian,
It's not hard to rig an election. It's blatantly obvious that companies have fraudulently controlled this election.
Some supporting evidence would be nice.:)

No. You are jumping to conclusions in the time-honored manner of a run-of-the-mill simpleton.

Grave allegations have been made. It is normal to provide corroborating evidence. That's accepted practice.:)

But then, you and I both know that already don't we, tinydroppings. For you any pretext to label someone "blinkered and ignorant" at any time is always too tempting to resist. Admit it.:)

you seem angry - possessed of that anger of someone who has the blatantly obvious pointed out to them - and are angry it causes you to reassess a fallacy that underpins your views - you dont like the extra work.

There you go again, jumping to conclusions. I am not angry. Rest assured that should I ever become angry you will be left in no doubt. Instead I merely marvel at your puny attempts at one-upmanship. Spare yourself ... you don't have the talent.

Tex's "bag of shit" seems to be the best that I too can do for you.:)

Labor still can't get it's act together ,it didn't take long for character assassination of Kevin Rudd by his Labor collegues after the election.
