AFL - Newspoll today clearly shows Australian's consider Tony Abbott as more likeable, more caring and understanding, more in touch with voters and more trustworthy than Julia Gillard.

Must be hard for you to face up to reality.

So why is Barnaby trying to move to the lower house Jez???

Greens + 1 in the Newspoll, change of leader seems to be a case of same old same old - which is a good base to build off

Bob Brown resigned on Friday ffs, womble.

I'd suggest wait and see on the Greens vote.  What is it at 12% now?  Laugh
Since the last election, the vote has gone backwards - thats the bottom line.

Guys - is this all you've got left?
Hypothetical's involving Barnaby Joyce, who continues to serve in the Senate....allegedly taking a seat in the Lower House and taking over as leader of the Nationals in the House of Reps, before and after the next election.

Sound's like a desperate game of "what ifs" from desperate comrades.

Nothing positive to say, just negative attacks against Coalition members.

Barnaby Joyce continues to serve his constiuents in Queensland in the Senate and as Leader of the Nationals in the Senate - your speculation is pathetic.

Bob Brown on Q & A.

Incredible how people can vote for such a self serving idealist.

Someone who has devoted his public and private life to the environment....self serving?

A brilliant man who stood up for himself and others against discrimination and vilification.

A more honest politician you will not find.

He declared that he could not afford to pay legal fees when he lost a court case against Forestry Tasmania, then rejects an offer from FT to reduce the amount, then he was happy for a thousand or so of his supporters to pay the $240k for him so he did'nt lose his seat in the Senate.
Now less than three years later he resignes mid term for no apparent reason.

and the global financial cartel (read Big "R") ... have him as their pinupboy spokesperson for their "uneelcted by the populace" ... global parliamentary governance .. controlled by the banking schemers .. who at this point have 94% of western countries ... paying them interest for bulls!t loans ...

Shiraz....if he resigns after an election he would have Murdoch saying why didn't he resign before the election if he knew he was quitting.

Mid-term is perhaps the most correct time for him to resign.

The reasons he resigned are quite plausible......unless of course one was searching for some conspiracy.

Not sure about the history of the court-case etc and the accuracy of your statement....but the way you have written it...the more relevant question would be..Are his supporters happy to pay the $240K?

extraordinary lol ... but why am i ever surprised

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/breaking-news-old/greens-select-whish-wilson-as-new-senator/story-fn3dxity-1226346681624

bob is replaced by one of the global gang

an economist lol ... vineyard owner & winemaker ...  not so strange you might ask ... (or might you)

but here it is ...

Mr Whish-Wilson comes from Tasmania’s north, a potential selling point in a state divided along parochial lines.

Seen as a moderate or “light” green, he has experience in establishing a successful Tamar Valley winery, and, before moving to Tasmania, in equity capital markets, having worked for Merrill Lynch and Deutsche Bank.

bob's global parliamentray governance leaders .. the Big R financial cartel ... will be pleased at the choice
