Labor Has Recently announced that if elected they will recognize Palestine, A stark contrast to the LNP who want to move the Israeli embassy to Jerusalem. Perhaps to remain on better terms with Malaysia and Indonesia?

Morrison's still managing to dig himself deeper into the mess he created to win Wentworth.

Morrisons done nothing more than create a myriad of problems that didn't previously exist, in an attempt to do the impossible, win Wentworth.
Perfect example of when sometimes it's preferable to do absolutely nothing.

What worries me about this Embassy move is that it could open us up to some kind of nasty response,why poke a hornets nest? We've seen some pretty low acts by the present LNP, surely not even they would stoop  as low as to cynically try to provoke a terrorist incident so that they can to the next election banging the national security drum.

I know thats pretty cynical, but they have previous.When last in opposition a couple of them (cant remember who) freely admitted that when a refugee boat sunk and people drowned, they thought it was great, because they could bash Labor with it.

Not really. Threats are good for incumbent governments and the wrought wing play it for all it's worth.

Saw that Morrison is in Iraq visiting our Service people. That's well and good but do you really need the cameras making it all about him.

They're having lots of retributions after the hiding they got from the electorate last month, which admitted was an almost wipe-out disaster leaving them hardly able to fill a mini-bus. The Greens also appear to be imploding from the exact same sort of stuff.

With Thump recklessly nudging the world towards recession it might be best if Morrison won next year.
That's unlikely because Labor's timing has never been great.

So Bob Hawke himself says he's not long for this earth. I for one have got some nice champagne waiting for the day he dies just like I did when Kerry Packer died.

What a miserable bastard you are and using the nom de plume of one of my political heroes. Hawke had many faults but I would never celebrate his death. Gee, on 11/11/75 I could have got a gun and shot Fraser but I was sad when he died, like the majority there was good and bad.  Thankfully I have migrated to a civilised country where we may disagree with our politicians but show some respect for giving a life of public service.
Even living in New Zealand, I am grateful for the Superannuation Guarantee Act developed under Hawke. Although I added far more than the initial 3%  during the latter years of employment, at age 74, I am able to use the proceeds every year to travel to either Europe or North America and travel by train. I do not need it for living expenses as the NZ government superannuation is not means tested and quite generous even when I was only a resident before becoming a citizen.

Nothing is worse than going to a media site and seeing hate filled bile directed towards a politician or a public figure who has died.

It would be lovely if Australia had remained in a 1970s time capsule but that could never happen. Bob Hawke was the start of a wave of PMs who reformed our economy that so badly needed change.

Do us all a favour and ban Don from Railpage. He is obviously unwell.

Well at least I got a response, I was starting to wonder if there was anyone paying attention.

You people are hypocrites. If you substitute "Bob Hawke" for "Pauline Hanson" or "Donald Trump" then what I said wouldn't have seen any objections from you people whatsoever. We all know that to be the truth. For some reason Pauline and Trump are fair game for those sorts of comments but someone with a carefully cultivated loveable larrikin image from the eighties brings you all out of your boxes because you still think he's a hero.

And all I said was that I'd be opening a bottle of nice champagne when he dies; I have my reasons for hating Hawke and Keating as I've detailed on this board many, many times. Hawke in particular set in motion the 'reforms' that have seen real wages in Australia failing to keep pace with inflation since 2012. Hawkie's Accord that saw corporate profits in Australia explode to their highest levels ever while worker wages fell behind inflation - it was pretty clear whose side he was on and it wasn't the everyday workers. Flogged off the Commonwealth Bank to their mates for a song, accelerated tariff falls putting hundreds of thousands into low pay low skill service industry jobs.

And I'll again ask the question - how did Hawkie become so very wealthy after leaving office? His personal fortune is estimated at something like $200 million. How did the Aussie worker's best friend manage to become so incredibly rich after he left office?

Anyone out there who still thinks he's a nice bloke or that he did the working class of this nation any favours needs their head read.

You're wrong there Don. I have no love for Hanson or Trump (I think they're f**king idiots) but I'm not going to go out and celebrate their deaths. They've got opinions and made decisions that I don't agree with, so be it. I won't mourn, but I'm certainpy not going to pop a champers to gleefully celebrate the passing of a pollie. No matter their ideological persuasion.

I very rarely post on Railpage now for the simple reason that the modelling section is all but dead and the lounge is basically a pissing contest between people who have opposing views and will not agree on anything.

I have this funny notion that people should be civil and decent. I will not be popping corks over the death of any politician or public figure. I reserve that sort of thing for Dictators, murderers and supporters of Islamic state.

There are politicians whose views I do not agree with, many of them. But to hate?

No Don, if you feel the need to hate and celebrate the death of an elected official  then you need to get out in the sunshine a little more.

Craig, Hawkie was venerated as a working class hero but he did the exact opposite, he was the big end of town's best mate ever. All I said was that I'm going to open a nice bottle of champagne when he dies - I'm not going to picket his funeral or make a big public spectacle of my hatred for the man and between me and the few dozen regular readers of this board is not exactly widely broadcast.

Some of you bleeding heart lefties need to consider exactly what was accomplished under Hawke and Keating:

  • Reduced top corporate tax rates from 49% to 33%.
  • Increased corporate profitability in Australia so that wages share of GDP fell from 62% to 55%, the equivalent of $50 billion being diverted into the pockets of big companies.
  • Instituted the wage-crushing Accord which shifted power from the unions to the big corporations. Union membership fell under Hawke/Keating from 49% in 1983 to 31% by the time Keating leaves office. Average worker were actually much better off under the Fraser government when wage rises weren't centrally controlled; once unions were enlisted to control wages by Hawke then workers started to leave unions in droves resulting in the less than 10% union membership that we see in Australia today. Hawke's reforms actually destroyed the Australian union movement.
  • Broke or de-registered militant unions such as the Pilot's Union and the Builder's Labourers Federation.
  • Introduced mandatory detention of refugees in 1992.

They were con artists of the highest order who are directly responsible for enriching the very wealthiest and making the working class poor, welfare dependent and poverty stricken - I will not be sorry when either one of them kicks off this mortal coil.
