No idea what you two are on about, but there are some topics it's best not to engage in rational debate about.

I mean, if somebody here wanted to have a rational debate here about the Earth being flat, the correct response would be to dismiss them as an idiot. I'm sure the flat-earther would pull the old "see, afraid to engage in civil discourse - look how right I am!" card.

Doesn't mean the Earth is flat.

So after 6 years of LNP government, according to Tim Wilson, Labor is to blame for the anaemic 0.4% growth for the June quarter saying “Australians lived in fear of a Labor government” and that’s why we didn’t spend any money to grow the economy.

Never mind the previous 3 quarters too btw...

That bloke is a Muppet

The economy isn't growing cause cost of living is growing and wages aren't, so people can't afford to go and buy a 55 inch TV like they could 5 years ago

It is, of course, a satire site - for anybody that doesn't know.

Their homepage currently has this pearler: "AFP Officers Treated For Severe Croc-Related Injuries After Attempting To Raid The NT News"

Yeah, I feel if you don’t realise it’s a satire site by now, you’re either beyond help or have a very odd view of the world
