Australian Politics Thread

A forum for the respectful exchange of views on thought-provoking topics, whether sexuality-related or otherwise; please read the guidelines prior to posting.

Forum rules

Welcome to the Intellectual Discussion subforum.

This forum is the place for intellectual discussions, such as philosophical or scientific debates. There are some guidelines that apply specifically to posts in this forum, of which you will be expected to have made yourself aware before participating. They are as follows:

  • Intellectually stimulating topics only. If you can't have a deep discussion about something, it does not belong here.
  • If you're going to post, have something to say. When you make a new thread, write the initial post in a way that provides an introduction to the topic and invites further discussion. You could tell us how you feel and why, but always aim for constructive responses that further a discussion about the ideas involved, rather than a simple list of people's views. (Instead of asking "Are you a vegetarian?", discuss some of the arguments involved.) This guideline likewise applies for responses to topics.
  • Write using good English. That means full sentences with proper capitalisation, punctuation, spelling and grammar. No one is perfect, though; this is not an invitation to criticise others for minor mistakes.
  • Be nice. This is a forum for rational discourse, not flame wars. No one is always right. Be respectful of other people's views and accept that we are all entitled to our own.

These guidelines will be enforced by the moderators based on their best judgement, and anyone who does not take them seriously will lose the privilege of posting here. Spammers will be banned from the entire forum.

The coalition bending itself over backwards to try and act like it's some kind of trump/russia conspiracy going on with new zealand and the labor party is just... nuts? Oh man, they sure did betray the australian people by.... asking questions that ultimately led to the reveal that the deputy prime minister was elected in breach of the constitution! The horror!

One Nation is classified as a "threat to religious freedom" according to the trump administration's list of people who're threats to religious freedom. (Mostly because of their expansive and exhaustive islamophobia)

I mean the list is, conceptually an awful dog whistle, but it's more that a little funny that the pro-trump-est party is on there
