“So, am I actually voting for Abbot or Plibersek?” asked every Australian voter.
With the 2019 election fast approaching on May 18, voters have a lot to consider – the budget, the environment, and most important of all, who will really be the Prime Minister after the Australian political ritual of a knife to the back takes effect.
Since John Howard left office, Rudd, Gillard, Abbott, and Turnbull have all been replaced after their party fashioned a prison shiv and gave them a quick stab in the shower blocks when the guards weren’t looking.
“All these leaflets and campaign ads offer a choice between Morrison or Shorten, but really it’s an election between Tony Abbott or Tanya Plibersek,” said voter, Toni Buscemi (33).
“What’s the point of advertising Morrison and Shorten when we all know they’re going to get rolled by their party and we’ll end up with someone else. Australian political ads should really say TBA vs TBA,” said voter, Alan Wilson (42).
Given that whoever wins on May 18th will be replaced, Pauline Hanson should count her lucky stars that she doesn’t get the top job. Otherwise, six months down the track, it will be Mark Latham’s One Nation Party.
