All he needs is to have some decent policies, like removing the governments interferrence into our private conversations etc god knows Labor didn't have any decent policies and now they are trying to catch up on their lack lustre performance by giving out the bickies, too little too late...bring it on Julian.

I don't know. He is kind of gay looking. Is that what we want our pollies to look like? And we all know he can't keep secrets so I don't think so.

I think Abbot will get my vote. A good honest Christian.

We don't care what they look like as long as they do a good job at running the country do we?
And you see Assange as untrustworth because he released information, I see him as a person with the guts enough to make those in charge culpable for their actions, but whether he has what it takes to be an honest decent and up front pollie is anyones guess..LOL.:)

No we must have standards - no weird weedy looking sickly albino types.

How will teh government ever keep secrets from us with assange there? No it is much better we don't vote for him and lets all vote Abbott and get the country moving forward again with good christian values.

How does becoming a senator give him any protection? And he isn't one until sworn in by the GG at Government house which he'll never attend because he'll be arrested by the old bill.

Our Government is already full of liars and crooks, maybe Assange wouldn't cover up things like the rest of them do... Now that would be a nice change...
