Surprise! Q&A audience not representative of Australian population.


You would never know it if you (foolishly) took a Q&A audience as representative of the voters of Australia.  But it seems the PM, and Coalition government, are absolutely on the right tram (so to speak) in seeking to strip terrorists who claim to be Australians of their citizenship.  They have the support of the vast majority of the electorate for the measure, as even begrudgingly acknowledged by yesterday’s Sneering Morning Herald.

imageWhilst in the parallel universe that is the pre-production meeting for the Q&A team, and in the patently unrepresentative swill (to borrow a former PM’s quip) that is a Q&A audience, a sentence strung together by Zaky Mallah, even if only partially grammatically correct and having the IQ of something approaching that of raw meat, attracts rapturous applause.

In the real world inhabited by actual voters, who actually work real jobs, for a real living, and pay real taxes, Zaky and Q&A just don’t stack up.  Meanwhile, Steve Ciobo speaks the forthright truth and Tony Abbott puts forward policies agreed to by the vast majority of the electorate.

Could that have anything to do with the result of the last federal election? Have the ABC even noticed that outcome, or were they too preoccupied with the next gotcha moment, or promoting the Killing Season among their target audience (something akin to a CFMEU rally meets the next World Wildlife Fund fundraising cocktail party)?

  • LNP are dictated to by their party executive, LNP don’t represents Australians or Australia, only the LNP corporation. Why is there so much debt whennn there is so much corruption in our public services, why not sack public employee’s that are found to be corrupt by form al complaint of the public.

    Thing is parliamentarians are mostly bludgers, especially ALP LNP are dictated to by their parties leaders and executives ‘Democracy’ “government by the people; especially: rule of the majority (b:) ” a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people, in breach of their democratic political duty to their constituents CRIMES ACT 1914 – SECT 28

    Please put an end to government bludgers.
    Why is there so much debt when there is so much corruption in our public services, killing Australians, families and Australia.
    Please end the big socialist government, cut government entitlements, sack corrupt public employee’s by formal complaint of the public, that’s called ‘Democracy’ “government by the people; especially: rule of the majority (b:) ” a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people.
    Our paid representatives “The Government” just gave themselves 2.5% pay rise while they blew out Australians debt to 720 billion AUD.
    Our paid representatives want us to pay 15% GST and cut our basic services.
    Total public service debt over 720 Billion now, since PM John Howard left office Dec 2007 with 10 Billion surplus, our public services are having a spending spree on your tax credit, spending billions as fast as they can.
    $18 thousand dollars a second more than we are taxed now @ 500 billion a year, they are spending 20% a year more.
    100 billion more a year, big government public service are now spending 600 billion a year, not on essential services, mostly on themselves
