Nah the DLP was not the same , the DLP was primarily a Victorian movement. Richardson and Keating are from the same faction. The DLP was never a major movement in NSW.

Interesting side note, Sir Robert Menzies, voted DLP in his later days rather then Liberal after Gorton/McMahon took over.

You mean the DLP that's raison d'etre was to ensure the ALP never won government by directing their preferences to the Liberals? Just another example of the pure hypocrisy of the Liberal Party.

One would have thought that given the debacle on Saturday and the tenuous hold the Morrison government has one would have thought that the last thing that the Liberals would have done would be to show hubris in Kerryn Phelps's first day in parliament.


What sort of weird logic is that - the DLP were disaffected Labor people , caused by the mismanagement of Doc Evatt and internals of the ALP, nothing to do with the Libs, who they chose to direct preferences to was up to them as they felt they were a safer anti communist bet than the ALP and what on earth was hypocritical about the Liberals wanted to keep the ALP out of power and them in, its the whole friggen point.

One wonders how such blatantly biased people like Dennis Shanahan (The Australian) and James Campbell (Herald Sun) can possibly be employed to report on politics given their blatant bias.

42 may one suggest you dont have to watch/read it....much like you yourself posted to those who did not agree with your biased political posts on here!


Absolutely beyond me why a hardliner commie like Swan would even come to pay the all evil Murdoch money to watch a channel he hates and spends all day bagging, then even better he watches FOX NEWS , Trumps cheer squad apparently and hates it ..yet pays to watch it.

He should stick to tax payer funded free socialists propaganda on the ABC and SBS.

Beyond Comical is our Swan42.


Because it gives our good friend Sean the ammunition he thinks he needs to come on here and post crap. If Sky was of a similar persuasion to Sean he'd watch something else that wasn't just to have something to bag....as we all know our 42 is the King of negativity.

The hypocrisy comes when acolytes of the RWNJs complain about Greens' preferences ging to the ALP.

Yes...you're quite correct. I meant May as the budget is being delivered 2 April and the 11th and 18th of April are Thursdays.
