    Ahh if the greens didn't love trees so much they would get my vote due to their views on disability

    A vote for The Greens is a vote for the reintroduction of Death Taxes.

    People should not use The Greens as a default protest vote against the big two parties.

    Well, dead people aren't using their money any more.
    The death taxes could be used for the Brookie Oval fund.

    totally un related to football but...........:......................f**k the greens. labor has done a deal with them. Labor gets in, greens get more massive marine parks to stop more fishing and close down hundreds of business's. Based on NO scientific research! If u like to fish, its simple dont vote labor! On facebook there is a group called ,we fish, join it!

    There is a good reason why Gillard doesn't have children.

    He instead chucked $5 million to St Marys, Riverstone areas which are marginal for footy grounds. Thats 5 times more than Brookie has got whilst he has been the area poly.

    Face it, nothing will come from Abbott

    You should listen to what Bill Shorten says about disability Dan - it's his big passion.  My aunt runs a charity in the disability sector and has says he has lifted it to being a major issue.

    I reckon (or I hope) Abbott will make the annoucement late Friday so he doesn't get accussed of 'pork barrelling' his own electorate in the media prior to election day.  A late friday announcement will ensure its doesn't hit the newstand until saturday if at all.

    Giving the silvertails a large chunk of cash will surely upset a stack of voters in marginal seats of the golden west.  He will be keen to avoid that.

    Anyway it is immaterial as it looks like the ALP will get returned based upon recent polls.

    Shorten is an impressive Politician, if theres such a thing unlike Scabbott and most of the others.

    Thats the thing, it doesnt matter who is in power but who has a marginal seat. Why would anyone expect anything out of Abbott as PM when he didnt care at all when he was just a sh!t kicker

    I live in an electorate that is even safer than RAbbotts and the main hospital is just about falling down.

    We have seen rallys and protests and funds raisers and all sorts of things, but until the Nationals lose some more of their 33% margin to the Labor party things wont change.

    I don't fish, or hunt.

    I do enjoy the arts.

    I don't have kids to leave money to. Greens sound fine to me.
