In 24 hours the Coalition has demonstrated, graphically and conclusively, that their 'merit' system has produced a government not competent to perform its most important functions.

If they really just didn't know any better, then they're too stupid to be in parliament.

I can accept that the wrong box got ticked on a communication somewhere, but EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM WAS OKAY WITH IT! That's the point.

People make mistakes, sure. All the time. But every single Coalition Senator, including senior ministers, was either too right wing, or too STUPID, to realise it was a mistake! That's the take home here!

Is that a serious question Peter? Which bad reason for a stupid decision was a worse reason than the other one?

We should all be taking note of this. This is the kind of idiotic move we can expect of Scott Morrison in the job. Not PM material.

I'm sure Dave Sharma knows a bit about the issue, but as a partisan player, not in any way independent.

This is an act of mind-boggling stupidity. Risking our international reputation and relationships, for the sake of leverage in a by-election. That's the sort of PM Morrison is. Idiot.

Only for all the wrong reasons! What a ridiculous question! No, they should be run out of town on a rail, never to darken our doorsteps again! And allow them near schoolchildren - are you completely mad???

Of course Donald Trump had 'a bizarre encounter' with Kanye West. All encounters with Trump are bizarre, as are all encounters with Kanye. The two of them together is just bizarreness squared.

I'm going to be a bit controversial here, and suggest that this is a bullying issue, and there's a truth about bullying we are highly reluctant to accept - that bullies only understand one language, and only change their behaviour when forced to by a bigger bully.

Drug education is vital, but when it's 'reefer madness' style propaganda it just isn't credible. Realistic education.

Sorry, no. That's not right. Nobody becomes an addict just because 'they liked it.' There's always trauma behind it. Work out what that is first.

We need to consider how to legally recognise that believing is NOT the same as knowing, and is often the diametrical opposite of knowing. Protect knowledge from belief!

So what you're saying Phil is that these schools want the right to teach children that being gay is a sin. Now, they might have got away with that in the days when it was widely believed to be a choice. Now we know it isn't, that is completely unacceptable.
