    Julia Banks was called “a bitch and a dog” for resigning from the LNP and going to the cross-benches.

    Morrison should remove this male from the party, or every female from the LNP should see the boys’ party for what it is, and every one of those females should move to the cross-benches.

      Also, will the offenders face criminal charges, as did the chap who abused Morrison at Bathurst? Not likely!

    Keith Antonysen … with all the doom and gloom and the Queensland fires, the flash floods in Sydney last night with 80 mm of rain in one hour, and more storms to intensify and wreak have in the Illawarra/ Woolongong and in the Parramatta area, can it all be blamed on an old Chinese curse bestowed on the Morrison government for not giving China’s top representative in Australia, Julie Bishop, the role of Prime Minister?

    By next May, soapbox idol Bill Shorten could be our next Prime Minister and send Australia into utter chaos with uncontrolled borders and open-ended migration coupled with unreliable job markets and an expensive cost of living as the nation descends into further unclear relationships with the Australian community at large.

    All because of Climate Change. Keith, you will have a field day, as with your ambitious targets you will have the satisfaction of seeing the end of civilisation occurring for real.

      By next May the Liberal Party will barely exist .. not due to Chinese curses or other fictional Party politicies and excuses, but due to the reality of Climate Change, and moronic right-wingers clutching on to their Neanderthal unsustainable pasts.

    No-one cares about your Budget or economic plans or racist fear-mongering, Morrison.

    Money means nothing when you have a planet which is heading to no longer be able to support life as we know it.

    Look around you. Flash floods in NSW just after bushfires; bushfires in Queensland after flash flooding; most of Australia’s farming area in drought in a non el nino year; unheard of temperatures into the 40s day after day in Cairns; the list goes on and on.

    What will it take to get you people off your lazy fat arses?

    You’re in for one almighty flogging at the polls, white-ant man.

    The Wentworth election showed clearly that climate change was a major issue, and that it is highly likely to have influenced a number of voters in Victoria. Politicians who deny the science of climate change really need to understand the water cycle before sounding off with their pseudo science nonsense. CO2 is held as being the major greenhouse gas, yet water vapour has a profound effect.

    A Utube Channel began to release films of extreme weather events in August 2016, and as of November 2018 there have been 145 episodes produced, with each episode showing a number of extreme events.


    Matters shown in reference for 5th – 19th November 2018:

    “00:13 The USA: The Camp Fire, Woolsey Fire & Winter Storm Avery
    20:13 Kuwait: Flash floods
    27:12 Jordan: Flash floods
    29:08 Saudi Arabia: Floods
    31:06 India: Tropical Cyclone Gaja
    32:50 Indonesia: Tasikmalaya & Dompu floods
    35:54 Vietnam: Tropical Storm Toraji
    37:40 Thailand: Southern floods
    38:11 Brazil: Rio landslide & Belo Horizonte flash flood
    40:54 Turkey: Bodrum flash flood
    42:30 Spain: Flash floods
    45:24 Temperature Data”

    It would very foolish of people to suggest flash flooding is not a major matter. Julia Banks has made disparaging comments about the extreme right of the LNP. Climate change is a matter that is already creating severe costs although the extreme right is in denial. The PM has sided with the extreme right of his chosen party.

    The major political parties in Australia need to be strongly pushing for mitigation and adaptation rather than still promoting new coal mines. It is complete recklessness.
