Is there some reason why you edited your post out of existence, cobl4?

Hmm. I don't know if there is enough momentum to roll him yet, but I'll be genuinely surprised if he is still PM come Christmas 2017. All that might save him is an increasing reluctance to change leaders - but for all the talk, I think both parties are still happy to do it if they think it advantageous (keeping in mind the delcons cannot perceive what is actually advantageous).

I think that his situation is unstable enough, and the 'real true conservatives' (let's call them that for now) are quite ready to shoot themselves in the face if it comes to it. I suppose the ever-present polls might have a part to play as well. You live by the polls, you die by them - as Tony Abbott would know.

I know this is The Project, but when even Steve Price is calling you out on your bigotry ... geez.

Well, the post where you were posting that thing about the journalist pulled up at Bunnings by the police. Last I looked the post had turned into the simple acronym 'qps', sans any further explanation. It looks like I'm responding to/quoting something completely random.

I'm watching Q&A for the first time in ages because Malcolm-Ieuan: Roberts. is on tonight. The first question, about the Nauru Files, has already sent my blood pressure through the roof thanks to the callousness of Greg Hunt and rank idiocy of the Free Man, the living soul.

Cobbler, if you hear anything smash up the road in the next half hour, it was probably me. I don't know how I can keep watching this braindead fuckwittery.

I am very glad that I stopped watching q&a years ago.

Oh. Sometimes tweets don't embed on a desktop computer. That's why.

AND NOBODY FUCKING ASKED FUCKING MALCOLM-IUEAN: ROBERTS., THE LIVING SOUL, ABOUT BEING A SOVEREIGN CITIZEN.

HE JUST KEPT SPOUTING SHIT ABOUT NEEDING EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT THAT ACTUALLY IS. BRIAN COX WAS FUCKING WAVING EMPIRICAL EVIDENCE IN FRONT OF HIM. HE HAD FUCKING CHARTS OF DATA.

OH MY GOD.

Now I'm having a whole bottle of wine to wind down so that I can actually sleep, because that was a fucking excruciating hour of my life that I will never get back.

"I brought the graph" is a legendary moment in Q&A history. Something really satisfying about Roberts' talking to a sea of silence, absolutely no reaction to his attempted 'humorous' Bieber reference, then Cox says one short sentence and the whole audience erupts.

I'm very glad I stopped watching Q&A years ago too. Did the show climax with an impromptu performance of Cliff Richard's 'Living Doll' set to dancefloor lighting, while the 'Things Can Only Get Better' hitmaker chair danced awkwardly off to one side?

Doesn't matter. He'll continue to get a good run with the media and his supporters will back him. He'll play victim, underdog.

He'll get an especially good run because he's pretty well spoken and obviously knows how to deliver a soundbyte. Ugh.
