    Care to expand on that RBM? What was 1982? Thatcher and Falklands?

    IMO the reason Pauline has 4 senate seats is because there is a shit load of scared little children out there just like you, that have no idea hats going on out there but gobble all of this scaremongering bullshit up ala Donald Trump style. It's how she got elected the first time. Only then we were getting "over-run" bu Asians. There were huge numbers of people that ate that bollocks up. Now she's back and has moved onto Muslims as the hot sexy xenophobic target to whip up the weak minded sheep about. Instead of wondering all these years later, "hey how come we didn't get "over-run by Asians" the sheeple are lepping this garbage up.

    Or to could simply be because the silent majority are fed up with Marxist cry-bullies, union corruption, the destruction of our economy, the dismantling of our industries and power grid and the obsession of the left over cultural trivialities while ignoring things that actually matter.

    Far too many divergent issues there for Hanson's policies to address appropriately ie her economic policies are destructive and the "dismantling" of industries is a fiction.

    It's nothing to wonder about in Sydney CBD (or Hurstville apparently). :|
    Had friends who visited from overseas saying that they thought they got off the wrong stop >_>

    You will get sheep following Pauline, but also like minded people that finally have someone speaking for them (as corny as that sounds :p).

    Populism is the most common form of political strategy, every side of politics utilizes it because it's so easy to target scapegoats to explain away any local or international issues. Populism doesn't require much thought, it has very little substance, it's simplistic and has little regard for the damage it's implementation causes eg loss of manufacturing in Australia is a problem, it can be blamed on companies offshoring where labour is cheaper, the solution is to raise tariffs on imports or mandate the use of Australian made products.

    I didn't know that Hanson wants to reform the CSA but, if so, that's another plus for me. I haven't had personal experience, but I have seen friends go through the mill. I also think it's high time that the overwhelming number of fathers that pay up are acknowledged when the media prefer to paint the majority of 'absent' fathers as bastards, husbands as domestic abusers and male university students as rapists.

    What's an alternative to the CSA or what suggestions could you offer to reform it nugget hunter? As we know changing media stereotypes is really just PC window dressing. I'd be interested in how you would curb the excesses of the bureaucracy so that groups are not favoured at the expense of others, with acknowledgements that non-custodial parents should be financially responsible for their own kids, but it must be reasonable.

    The article goes on to say that those who argue that terrorist attacks are motivated from a spiritual or theological perspective are throwing up red-herrings.
