Jim Litzow - Bring on the election so we can get rid of abbot.clive palmer I want to hear more about your policies and where you stand on the environment , the workers , unions, ceo's receiving multi million salaries and huge pay rises compared to workers...getting the bludgers off welfare and back into the workforce.health , our elderly , I don't want to work till I'm 70 .I would like to relax with my last year's left on earth. I won't be voting labor either .
Kerry Anne Crew - go and read the PUP website. a little of policy is there, what i did find on the site of policy I thought was good. Logical thinking, not so politically "correct" it guts the nation of jobs and health.
Naomi Liersch - bring on the election to get rid of this poor excuse for a prime minister out of office.
Ethan Lobodin - Palmer isn't destabilising the electoral system. Palmer is in it for Palmer.
Kerry Anne Crew - but alt least logically he is trying making sure the rest of us(he has to have workers) dont go completely under, and tells it like it is. Our election system sux anyway so it needs to be modernized!
Mark Campbell -Palmer is a trouble maker!
Naomi Crager - Bring it on. But please explain why it will be only these 2 parties In the election.
Didge Rocky - Yeah right... he wouldn't be game to...... PUP would have my vote 100%
Charmaine Saunders - I hope they change the senate electoral system before they go to a DD. There is something wrong with our electoral system when somebody who receives less than 2000 primary votes can end up holding the balance of power in the senate.
Tanya Gibson - ha! oh PLEASE by all means call a snap election! Lets see how you go 2nd time around!
Tina Wilson - If Clive palmer gets in say goodbye to Australia
Louise Goodger - I don't think he will call it. Wouldn't be game.
Margaret Balchin - Fantastic call it
Jack Anthony Blackburn - Is this guy for real, does he not see that this would be political hara kiri?
