Aussie conservative takes a fall

"The New South Wales Premier says he feels no sympathy for the Opposition Leader, who has been forced to resign over a racist slur and the sexual harassment of two women."

I hope that all the Australian Muppits who returned the Liberals to government at the Federal election may have a change of heart following this event.

you can't make such a generalisation based on the stupidity of one person.

i'm hardly suprised with this, Brogden is from a GPS background, enough said.

Re: Aussie conservative takes a fall

Conservatives taking a fall is a good thing! More conservatives should! But this guy appears to be particularly nuts.

btw, do I grasp from the article that in Australia the conservatives are actually the liberals?

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

well in France the word liberal actually refers to anglo-saxon (read: U.S: & American) economic policies. The guy who resigned in Australia was a conservative and he deserved to lose his post.

here the liberals are the "conservatives"

but you are right, it doesn't matter the party he represents, racial slurs and groping women and he had no choice but to go

Hey, you edited your post.. too bad, I wanted to comment on it.

Anyway, in Holland, the liberals are our right-wing party and the conservatives too. It seems that only in the USA a liberal is a degrading term used to refer to left-leaning people.

Re: Aussie conservative takes a fall

In Australia the party should be a called the Tories, they are not a liberal party per se. Both Liberals and Tories have similiar views on economic policy, but not social policy.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Yeah, I edited my post one minute after having posted it when I saw that I was wrong. But you guys are faster than speedy gonzalez.

It would be hard for me to do so considering I am not a British citizen.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".
