Looks like the rumours I was hearing about an imminent challenge to Turnbull may turn out to be wrong.

The right of the Liberal Party is falling in behind Frydenberg, at least for now.

Interesting insight into how the factions, that don't exist, within the Liberal Party operate- right down to their media strategy.

Friends at CSIRO tell me that CSIRO lead research in these areas and were shut down.

Of course they were. Coal is the future of the liberal party.

Who would have thunk it, the COALition's "Direct Action Policy" doesn't stack up?

They need to attack the mathematicians as well as the scientists.

CSIRO lead research in these areas
AU has a large history in alternative energy research, with sadly, most being shut down or going offshore. Philips had world beating solar research and pre-production here in Adelaide, in the early 90s. UNSW had a number of solar tech breakthroughs that is now the standard for the solar industry - PRC threw a billion or so at one of their own who graduated from there, and he created Suntech Solar - was one of the Chinese solar giants. But we have had significant investment here despite that. We could otherwise definitely be further along the curve of development, though.

Says it all. Two thirds of those who class themselves as One Nation supporters support Trump- at about twice the rate of the general population.

Kind of strikes me as an example of a thoughtless survey to get a thoughtless result. Generally, folk in AU only know of his activities through sound-bite headlines.

the "race card"
In the UK, suspects of Pakistani appearance are called 'Asians' - not helpful in police hunts. Assuming these sorts of gangs are largely of the African sub-continent, ie follow a pattern, then one wonders how they should be referred to? Afro-Australians? (as per US Afro-Americans)

I don't agree. The man endlessly promotes himself through Twitter for goodness sake. He makes massive U Turns - see the one this morning. I take you to be defending him because we only "know of his activities through sound bites". I think many Australians are far more aware than you give them credit for. :rolf:

Are you saying the ones that support him (and One Nation- on the results of the survey) have dug beyond the Twitter and the sound bites (which he puts out as well) and are are actually the better informed ones? Read some of the demographic research on One Nation supporters. Or quicker and easier, listen to them ring in to talk back radio all day long.

The survey says plenty to me about One Nation supporters and none of it is good.

Nothing to do with it.

Turnbull is a politician, not a law enforcement officer, he was making a political point by dog whistling to a particular audience and playing on the fears of others. Coalition Politics 101.

I think police should not be constrained in undertaking policing in the way you have mentioned.

through Twitter
is pretty much equivalent to "through sound bites", I would've thought :)
you to be defending him
you assume too much! :)
My comment is primarily about the vapidity of those kinds of surveys, a media form of click-bait.
And yes, more of us should read beyond twitter-sphere/AFP/AAP/Reuters etc

Trump's primary support based is the religious. I imagine that's not different here.
