He's been excommunicated ever since.

Di Natale stepping down as leader of the Greens what do you reckon Jimmy time for SHY to ascend to the throne?


I didn’t know where he’s worked other than UWA and, currently, everywhere in the media.

I think SHY would be good for the Greens but, alas, I think Adam Brandt will get it. SHY is just too mentally stable for the job.
Shame actually: I’d like to see the documentary Sea Patrol back on TV
If we are referring to SHY as the stable one then I think that says it all.

Exactly, she is a friggin looney

Mentally stable and SHY.
Not a phrase I'd associated with her before?

This topic should really LNP watch as it's like a bloody soap opera at the moment.

Bandt the Greens leader as expected. He has a long history with the Unions so wonder if the Greens become a little cosier with the ALP?

The Tony Abbott reign (aka Peta Credlin reign) seems normal in comparison.

True and that's pretty sad considering.

The attitude of Barnaby's faction within the Nats makes me think of this song.

The rorting revelations continue. Scotty from Marketing up to his neck in Sports Rorts and there were at least five other spending programs where he used public money to bribe marginal electorates.

How handy would an ICAC be atm..? :roll: Not only the PM , but Taylor, Joyce, Dutton, McKenzie and Littleproud and probably a few others would be a tad anxious.

Me either. I've met her a few times at functions.

She has a tendency to get angry and talk over people who don't entirely toe her line - Mark Parnell is a much more reasonable person.
(So is Cory Bernardi who would at least politely discuss things he didn't entirely agree with.)
