Courtesy of The Australian, Newspoll has the Coalition leading 51-49 on two-party preferred, unchanged on three weeks ago, from primary votes of Coalition 43% (steady), Labor 36% (up one), Greens 11% (steady) and One Nation 2% (down one, and their weakest result since at least the 2019 election). Scott Morrison is up two on approval to 66% and down two on disapproval to 30%, while Anthony Albanese is up one to 44% and up two to 41%, with Morrison’s lead as preferred prime minister out from 58-29 to 60-28. The poll was conducted Wednesday to Saturday from a sample of 1511.
Newspoll: 51-49 to Coalition
Further improvement in Scott Morrison’s personal ratings, but otherwise little change in the latest Newspoll.

BK finally got a Glen Le Lievre gif to work! Congrats! 😀
Relaunching the Covid ‘Safe’ App will give #ScottyfromMarketing a whole new opportunity to tout it! 🙄
You are by no means alone with your thoughts!
The scary thing is that those who carry the most guns, show the most aggression, and cannot be persuaded by logic, are on Trump’s side.
As the pandemic provided an opportunity to change the narrative on Scomo, when does the ALP HQ start to go attack dog on the LNP?
As soon as the bushfires start up again or is it time to hammer home a wedge on Corruption and entitlement?
Much appreciation BK for today’s reports.

The DTA mentioned in the article is the “Digital Transformation Agency”
The Hon Stuart Robert appears to be the leader of Gummint Services and this sorry load of old …………………(insert seasoning to suit taste) is another arrow in the “guess who shot himself in the foot” saga.
Sad housekeeping story a la KayJay. I have a series of long handles spoons handy to my electric kettle, coffee and sugar and given that the stars are correctly aligned I know by how many spoons are in the drying rack how many cups of coffee I have had.
Naturally, given the above piece of folly, I have wondered what would occur should a member of the Honourables visit. Would a continuous check of spoon numbers be advisable ❓
Often the ALP needs a really cut through leader to get into government. Whitlam,Hawke, Rudd. Once they get in, the right biased media will hack at them like there’s no tomorrow,and the political capital runs out pretty quick . The last successful leader Rudd made climate action and ridding us of Howard’s odious work choices seem like an urgent necessity. When Gillard got in we had the continuation of the corrosive media carping but also a feeling of a government with nothing to achieve like schoolkid bonuses etc. It seemed like the Libs were just waiting until the election to yawn into government whilst embattled Julia and co.struggled to get anything going. Labor needs to create a sense of urgency about the future and provide an acute anxious feeling that things are going wrong under Scomoe and that with the ALP in charge, government will provide real fair solutions rather than the laissez fair of private concerns. I don’t know if Albo can pull this off. Maybe time to pull off the kid gloves. I’m not sure if a change to Tania P will do the trick either even with her friendship with Alan Jones taken into account.
Count not only your spoons, but also your chairs. They’re a clever lot!

Yes but my thoughts about that are that the people with the guns haven’t used them already. Why is that so? Maybe it’s because they know that, even if they want to defend Trump with deadly force, the upshot is that it’s not guaranteed that doing so will prevent Trump eventually going to jail as the loser of the election and now private citizen that he will be, but that they too will go to jail if they seriously hurt or kill someone. And that’s something that stops all but the most crazed, like that 17yo boy in Wisconsin, from pulling the trigger.
This seems to be the current MSM narrative on Newspoll – highlight approval ratings rather than 2PP.
This is the Canberra Times headline. Same on commercial radio news.
It is where good ideas are taken to be transformed into faecal matter. They are very good at their job.
ABC reported skullduggery at Crown. Crickets. The commercial media take it up. Wow! This must be serious. (Perhaps the gov should stop fretting about ABC influence on voters.)
No references to ‘The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock’ please! Mavis will be unbound for the rest of the day! 😆

And Stuart Robert the exact right person to lead the shitshow.
Stuart Robert. An anti science biblical literalist happy clapper , who better to put in charge of leading edge digital technology ? What a great advert he is for the quality of education at QUT where he managed to be given a Masters degree in……….. 😆 Information Technology.
The Murdoch article posted by lizzie says Hunt will announce yet another advertising campaign about Covid-19 safety precautions. Presumably their app revamp will feature in the campaign.
Of course Morrison and Hunt can keep doing this ad infinitum as there will be the threat of Covid-19 for a long time into the future.
The Australian. 30/11.
As soon as Sales revealed on Tuesday that Andrews was coming back to 7.30, the attacks by Dan’s Twitter comrades commenced. For months, #IStandWithDan trolls — known as some of Twitter’s most relentless — have loudly attacked anyone holding Andrews to account about the state’s well-chronicled hotel quarantine problems.
Am not on twitter, but can just imagine the response.
What about the Ruby Princess?
What about the Federal govts responsibility for Aged Care?
Simple, Clear, Fast!? Did Stuart borrow some slogans from Tony Abbot?
Faster, Cheaper, Quicker!?

Boring Bat shit as a leaky face of Rudy.
Victoria records one new coronavirus-related death
Victoria has recorded yet another day of no new coronavirus cases, but one person has died after previously being cleared of COVID.
Victoria has recorded its 31st consecutive day of no new coronavirus cases as other states prepare to open their borders to Victorians this week.
Zero cases were reported from 5030 tests in the past 24 hours, the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed on Monday morning.
But one person has died, with DHHS reporting the fatality was a “previously cleared COVID-19 case” and died from complications “relating to their original diagnosis”.
Yesterday amongst all the reports of record temps etc. by the media, I was stunned to see a woman lying out sunbathing in the 40 deg-plus heat.
He didn’t need to go to Japan so he doesn’t need to be in isolation. This is all part of the propaganda and sickeningly mawkish.
Can we please drop the “Hon” when talking about politicians, most in the system seem to be focused on their donators/ lobbyists/ self, not public services/ the people/ advancing Australia, fair!
Wisconsin recount not only confirms Biden’s win of the state, but increased his vote margin! And in the ultimate humiliation for MAGAers and Trump, Donald must foot the bill for the recount under Wisconsin laws. 😆
If the failed Covidsafe app had happened on Julia Gillard’s watch:
– In the Daily Rupert: “Labor wastes $70 million on failed app”
– In the National Rupert at the head of a 16,000 word “investigation”: “Covidsafe Ineffective” based upon leaks from Coalition sympathisers in the Public Service.
– And again in the Daily Rupert: “Labor app failure kills hundreds!”
Morrison “working hard” during iso?
The ones who are working hard are his team of spinners. Scomo just does what he’s told.
Puff piece about his loneliness in isolation (with only a PR person and a chef for company) is far more important. Gotta keep those popularity polls moving.
More firsts for Team Biden.
Macquarie’s word of the year is “Doomscrolling” – the act of consuming an endless procession of negative online news, to the detriment of the scroller’s mental wellness.
This chap skipped self quarantine and visited half a dozen busy places across the Adelaide after getting a false negative test….
The media are starting to sniff rats with the demonisation of these people doing the ‘wrong’ things. It now appears this man thought he was doing the right thing – as predicted by many a couple of days ago when this news broke. No mention yet that the indiscretion took place on the first day of the lockdown early mark. But they are getting there. They are even questioning the continual use of the Emergency Act in decision making and leading pressers (eg the Police Commissioner) for Covid.
The wheels of the MSM move slowly when it comes to using independent thought. The issues have been discussed around barbeques, in fringe media publications and on PB for a week.
Something tells me Donald never foots the bill. Probably because of heel spurs or some other ailment like greedy self-obsessed bastard syndrome.
Rather than a “false negative” it was just that it was too early to show up in the test . I do like Rupe’s original paper’s description of his trip to the shops 🙂
Not a bad result for Labor, one point up on its primary vote and competitive on the 2PP metric, though this can of course be misleading if the state breakdown for Queensland replicates the last Morgan, where Labor was nine points behind. Morrison’s still walking on water, like all leaders who are “perceived” to have handled C.19 reasonably well. Once the vaccine becomes available, attention will inevitably turn to other matters – hopefully, the sheer incompetence and financial mismanagement of the Morrison Government.
“As the pandemic provided an opportunity to change the narrative on Scomo, when does the ALP HQ start to go attack dog on the LNP?
As soon as the bushfires start up again or is it time to hammer home a wedge on Corruption and entitlement?”
There are already lots of bushfires burning, the media just isn’t focused on them right now.
Undoubtedly why Team Trump has gone into fundraising hyperdrive.
Fair enough (apart from the fact they have been packing the court for decades). But none of those are values. Whilst the vast majority of Americans share the same values, the Republicans have worked hard at cultivating the idea that policy ideas ARE values and branded their voters with it. It makes a political policy position a cultural one – which might be great in securing a life long voter, but creates dangerous division and clouds everyone’s judgment.
The GOP have been doing this so long… they are now drinking their own poison.
Something for the fossil fuel fans……….
Burning Fossil Fuels Helped Drive Earth’s Most Massive Extinction
Massive volcanic eruptions ignited oil and coal deposits in Siberia in the events that led to the Permian-Triassic “Great Dying” event………96 percent of all life in the oceans and, perhaps, roughly 70 percent of all land life vanished forever………………..“The amount of carbon released to the atmosphere per year from the Siberian traps, it was still 14 times lower than the rate we have at the moment,” Dr. Jurikova said. “So, the amount of carbon we’re burning per year at the moment is much higher than during the largest extinction. I mean, that’s incredible, right?”

I remember about a year ago Karvelas had on some Newscorp peeps discussing the weeks news and they scoffed (they actually laughed) at the huge fires raging in Brazil as some sort of Green propaganda designed to scare everyone. The reason they laughed? Because Brazil had larger fires the year before – so it was just the norm and not newsworthy.
poroti @ #87 Monday, November 30th, 2020 – 9:25 am
He wasnt the only one out and about that day. The messaging coming from the head honchos was all over the place, peeps took to the streets to celebrate the ending of what they were told was an unnecessary lockdown.
On the test… if it was too early to show up on the test, why are they saying he was very contagious? Do you have a link to the info on that first test?
Mavis @ #88 Monday, November 30th, 2020 – 10:01 am
Unlikely. Smirko has found a successful formula, and will keep using it. Basically, he just keeps making announcements, promising things (no need to actually deliver them), post selfies and polishing his “daggy dad” image – it’s not much, but it’s enough to engage with a disillusioned and shell-shocked electorate. And if you think things will change once the crises stop … well, what makes you think the crises will ever stop? There is much worse heading our way than what we have yet been through.
Albo meanwhile doesn’t do anything … except (possibly) wonder why no-one ever pays any attention to him – not even his own party 🙁
How far into denial they are!
I hesitate to post this, but …
How good was the selection of Mo in the Aus team for last nights game? Bats 200 ;-), best bowling figures and takes a screamer. No need for Marsh or Stoinis to come back. And allows CA to be cautious with introducing the young gun Green.

Because they’re cowards one and all. The openly carried firearms are the proof of that.
