Climate Change Australia – Liberal Party Pays For Saying Me Too On Warming

January 31, 2019 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The last two Liberal environment ministers pushed global warming and now reap what they helped to sow. Both are being challenged by warming crusaders – Greg Hunt by Liberal deserter Julia Banks, and Josh Frydenberg by Oliver Yates. Lesson: the Liberals can never outflank the Left on warming, and should have […]

Australian Politics – Don’t Let Us Stop You

December 6, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Why wait?:   Liberal insiders say Julie Bishop will retire from parliament just before the next election, despite speculation she might consider a career as opposition leader should the government lose the election, and despite the fact she has been re-endorsed for her seat of Curtin. One theory in Liberal ranks is […]

Australian Politics – With Liberals Like Turnbull, Who Needs The Labor Party?

November 29, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ I’ve said that the current Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison had to call out former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, who is determined to destroy the Liberal party that rejected him: Malcolm Turnbull has been in ­regular contact with Kerryn Phelps and one of his staff members helped the independent MP, who […]

Australian Politics – Left Trashes The Liberal Party, Right Gets Blamed

November 28, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Former Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, of the Liberal Left, lost 14 seats at the Federal Election. He called a needless by-election for his seat and ensured the Liberals lost it. MPs, of the Liberal Left, blocked the leadership challenge of conservative Peter Dutton and installed Scott Morrison instead. Kelly O’Dwyer, Julia […]

Australian Politics – Victorian Election Result – Liberal Party Left Blame The Right For Liberal Party Left Defeat

November 26, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ The Liberal Party Left makes no sense in exploiting the Victorian debacle. Senate president Scott Ryan says this was “primarily a state campaign” and the state Liberals were in the “strong Liberal tradition” of Jeff Kennett – socially “liberal in their outlook”. I think Victoria is historically a liberal state… A […]

Australian Politics – Victorian Election Result – Liberal Party Fail

November 25, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Victoria’s election was a disaster for the Liberal Party that has federal implications: The incumbent Labor Party Government looks set to win at least 60 of 88 seats… The win is the biggest for the Labor Party since Steve Bracks won 62 seats in the 2002 against Robert Doyle. The Liberals […]

Australian Politics- Shock: Sharma May Yet Win

October 21, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Background: Here, be aware that where it mentions the Liberal Party, here in Australia, this is the major party from the Conservative side of the political divide. This is similar to a special election in the United States where a sitting member vacates his seat before a scheduled General Election. This […]

Australian Politics – Liberal Party Bounce From The Floor. Bishop Moans

September 24, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Some good news for the Liberal Party, but still way behind: The Coalition’s vote rose two points to 36 per cent while Labor’s fell to 39 and they trailed 46 to 54 on a two-party preferred basis, according to the latest Newspoll published in The Australian on Sunday night. Mr Morrison […]

Australian Politics – Liberal Party Betrayed: Prime Minister Turnbull Offers Carbon Tax, Deeper Cuts

July 27, 2018 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ You have been conned. The Liberal Party members have been betrayed by their leaders. (Here in Australia, the Liberal Party is the major political party from the conservative side of the political fence) Liberal Party MPs voted to scrap the carbon tax; now the Turnbull Government sneaks in a new one. […]

Australian Politics – Senator Eric Abetz: A Call To Arms. Fight For Values

July 22, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Background: Senator Eric Abetz represents the State of Tasmania in the Australian Senate. He has been a Senator since 1994, and is from The Liberal Party of Australia, the senior of the two conservative political parties which make up the Coalition currently governing Australia…..TonyfromOz. I thought Senator Eric Abetz gave his […]

Australian Election 2016 – Prime Minister Turnbull’s Strategy To Take His Own Liberal Party For Granted

May 19, 2016 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ (Where you see the word Liberal here in reference to the name of the political party, that Liberal Party of Australia is the major political party from the Conservative side of politics here in Australia…..TonyfromOz) Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s Liberals are running the ultimate marginal seats campaign, under the influence […]

Australian Politics – Malcolm In The Middle. So Far

September 16, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Australia’s new Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull’s first challenge will be to stop the Liberal Party from splitting. So far, so tentatively promising: Malcolm Turnbull is moving to appease his conservative colleagues by striking deals to quell the anger over the leadership plot against Tony Abbott, cementing policies on climate change and […]

Conservative Politics Australia – Less Will Give Us More

August 24, 2015 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ One of the great frustrations of many conservatives is that few Liberal Party MPs seem to have the conviction, the courage or the talent to argue fluently for liberal or conservative principles. (The Liberal Party is the major political party on the Conservative side of politics in Australia) I suspect Maurice […]

Australian Federal Election – The Only Good In This Bad Result

August 23, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt With the election result still balanced with no outright winner, and the distinct possibility of a ‘hung’ Parliament, I’m going to concentrate on it for a couple of days until the picture becomes a little more clear. To that end, I’ll be posting two posts from Andrew today. The second of those […]

The Australian Electoral Process Explained

July 18, 2010 by


With a general election called at the Federal level here in Australia, to be held on August 21, it’s worthwhile looking at the electoral process here in Australia. In the run up to this vitally important election, I will be contributing regular posts, both about the campaign, and especially the result. To give you a […]

Australian Political Upheaval – Abbott Wins

December 1, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt TonyfromOz prefaces ….. This adds to our earlier Post on this same subject. It may be centred mainly in Australia, but the importance lies in the fact that now it looks extremely likely that any Emissions Trading Scheme may be voted down in the Senate. Andrew here gives us a Timeline on […]

Australia To Reject Emissions Trading Legislation (Again) EXCLUSIVE

November 30, 2009 by


10AM Australian Eastern Standard Time. (7PM U.S. Eastern) The political turmoil in Australian politics outlined in this earlier post has come to a head this morning. The incumbent Labor Government has been trying to ram through its ETS legislation, artfully called the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme. (CPRS) This legislation passed easily through the House of […]

Barnaby For PM

August 16, 2009 by


By Andrew Bolt TonyfromOz prefaces ….. This is a short post from Andrew that says it all. However, as background, this preface will actually be longer than the post itself. The Barnaby mentioned here is Senator Barnaby Joyce. He represents the State of Queensland and is a member of the LNP, the Liberal National Party, […]

Australian Politics – U.S. Politics. You Pick The Difference.

May 13, 2009 by


There are some differences, and as always, I like to explain them up front, because sometimes it can be a little confusing. Those differences are only in the naming of the Parties themselves, because when it comes to policy, and overall Political Agendas, they are almost a mirror image of your U.S. political parties. The […]

The Queensland State Election In Australia

March 22, 2009 by


My home State Queensland in Australia went to the polls yesterday to elect a new State Government. First I’ll give you a few facts and figures about Queensland. The map on the left shows Queensland in red on the map of Australia. The red dot is our State Capital Brisbane. The size of the State […]

The Hanson Effect

September 12, 2008 by


The way that the media are ‘handling’ Sarah Palin bears similarities to a degree on something that happened here in Australia. The lady in question was Pauline Hanson. She started political life as a member of her local council, and when an early Federal election was called in 1996, she was preselected to represent the […]
