Australia's new PM Scott Morrison won with votes! How long since that has happened?
The media gets it completely wrong and the voters choose a candidate with a sound, conservative economic plan. Welcome news to the money people apparently, confidence in the voter's choice is already reflected in the securities exchange. 

Religious freedom and school choice were also cited as a reason why a conservative who was written off by AU media, actually had the ear of the voters. He is said to have made a great effort to reach voters during his campaign. 

The left is the media. Yet the vote for Brexit, Trump and Morrison indicate resistance to the resistance.

toyomotor, are you surrounded by Liberals?

Quote toyomotor, are you surrounded by Liberals?

Yes, and very pleased to be. Clap

Liberals in Australia are no that far to the right, more of a mild right I'd suggest.

The Labor Party in Australia has shown itself,historically, to be unable to manage finances, leading to some stupendous National Debt in the past. It's done some very good things though on Welfare, such as our Medicare Scheme, which has every Australian worker pay a small levy on their weekly wage to subsidise what really is a generous Public Health system. Everyone in Australia is covered by either the public system or by private health schemes.

I'm very thankful that they won, we can look forward to some very good years.Thumbs Up

I do like it when the map shows itself to not be the territory.  That is one thing good about Trump's election, not about his presidency, but his election.

The classic example is newspapers declaring Dewey the winner against Truman.

Is Australia a purely representational vote system?  You vote for MPs and the party with the most MPs, chooses the PM, (or an alliance of the most MPs), correct?

I know it has a different connotation in English English, but every time I hear "scheme" I cannot help but think "scam," especially if it is a government program being referred to.....

LOL we do have a different sense of that word in the US.

This does look like a push back on the leftists screaming gallery. All issues are human issues right? Drawing lines into smaller and smaller groups based on factors that can't be changed like race, ethnicity or economic situation at birth, are losing steam bc the policies are so harmful. Venezuela is looking Apocalyptic.

Yes, pretty much. The leader of a political party is elected by the other members who have been elected. He/she leads the party into an election at some stage, and if they win, he/she becomes Prime Minister. But, as recent history has shown, Prime Ministers can be dethroned by the elected members if the become unpopular or are not considered to be leading properly.

Only last year, it was revealed that the Deputy Prime Minister was in a relationship with a younger women, and that she was pregnant with his baby. Guess what happened to him?

Do you think it's too easy to get rid of a PM?
So much dishonesty, the press is decietful and biased here. We wouldn't be able to manage that system here. Everyday would be election day.

Yes, I do, emphatically.

I expect that in the not too distant future, legislation will be passed to effective enshrine a PM for the life of the parliament.

Australia  has tossed so many PM's over the past ten years, that we're sometimes called "The Coup Capital of the World".
