I know we city voters have already had our say, and it could be up to three years (but not necessarily so long) before we get asked again, but isn’t it fairly courageous for Tony Abbott to publicly pledge to put city voters last just to win over some rural independents? In writing, in papers read by voters in the cities?
Don’t worry, country voters, I’m on your side. I *hate* the cities and all their stinking, repulsive hippy voters. In government I will crush them and make them support you all… Oh, hi city voters! Ignore all that stuff I just said. Really, I’ll stand up for you.
It’s like the Liberals in WA bashing the eastern states as if that won’t have any repercussions when voters in the eastern states figure out what they’ve been saying about us behind our back.
Just how gullible do they think we are?

Another innovation would be an acknowledgment of country each day before the prayer.
“An acknowledgment of country”? Um, what?
