    The Greens.

    Two Senators had to step down because they were never eligible to be Senators. Please tell me they don't get a pension for life now.

    Now they have announced they want to shut down the Nuclear Reactor in Lucas Heights (that is now the only facility in the WORLD that can produce some particular medical radioisotopes) because it's Nuclear and it's "bad"... I live about 10 KMs from the Reactor and have visited a number of times on open days - it can't close. Like the Anti-Vaxers, people will literally die if they get their way.
    I'm in love with my car. Got a feel for my automobile.

    The problems with the internet.

    There is a large amount of information available but much of it is tailored to push agenda and most of it is too complex for many to understand.
    It is interesting to note that the ones who have the least capability to actually comprehend information tend to be the noisiest and least likely to accept that they are wrong.

    There are a small number of people who are complete fuckwits who until recently were isolated and relatively harmless.
    Social media has allowed them to communicate with each other forming mobs of fuckwits and mobs have been problems for all societies for for millennia.

    The good thing about the internet is that all sides can publish so the traditional media are copping a flogging when they are caught lying.
    Also the true nature of everyone is showcased and people can start to make their own decisions as to what political groups really want and who their people really are.

    A lot of the videos of left wing protests both here in overseas have demonstrated that how crazy these people are which has allowed some of the more centre left to gain a broader view.

    Strangely the same is not true of the right as there is very little video of violent protests, destruction of property or ignorance of a subject by any right wing group or organisation.
