these are the best we have?

The two major parties both claim they are the only logical choice and that any minor party or independent is a wasted vote

Look where two or more decades of their combined economic and strategic policy making has got us...

It's our fracking gas!!! The Australian people. Sure, private equity funded the exploration and invested in the extraction and deserve a return on their investment. But did successive Federal and State governments, Labor and Liberal, have to bend over and take it - why did no-one (apart from W.A.) think to reserve a guaranteed portion for domestic consumption? Who negotiated these deals on our behalf? Short-sighted short-term decisions made within an election cycle so they can say "We created X number of jobs" with no thought to our future.

None of them are worth feeding.
My choice is what I choose to do, and if I'm causing no harm why should it bother you?
Your choice is who choose to be, and if you're causing no harm then you're alright with me

Doesn’t add up - if gas drives electricity costs as they are saying, why didn’t electricity costs spike when gas costs apparently spiked in 2015?

I said it before.... the more renewables we are dependent on... the more we need gas fired power stations as they can start up quickly to meet demand.

Thus the gas companies (generator and producers) are laughing to the bank
Blame it on the phone auto correct
