Liberal Party council votes to sell off the ABC and move Australian embassy to Jerusalem

The Liberal Party’s peak council has voted almost 2:1 to privatise the ABC in a call that was swiftly rejected by cabinet ministers amid warnings it would be “total madness” to act on the call.

The overwhelming vote at the party’s annual council in Sydney gained vocal support from conservative think-tank Institute of Public Affairs, which said the company could be sold or given to Australians who already own it.

The vote came in a debate on Saturday where about 110 council delegates, representing Liberal branches from across the country, also voted for an efficiency review into SBS.

The council also voted, by 43 to 31 votes, to relocate the Australian embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a highly contentious move opposed by Foreign Minister Julie Bishop during the debate.

Council delegate Mitchell Collier, the federal vice president of the Young Liberals, said he had enjoyed ABC programs such as Bananas in Pyjamas during his childhood but said there was no economic case to keep the broadcaster in public hands.

“High sentimentality is no justification for preserving the status quo,” Mr Collier told the meeting, which included cabinet ministers, Liberal state premiers and top party officials.

They should dump the ABC as it no longer is serving the country as an unbiased national news and entertainment broadcaster.

Lets see if these idiots an survive in a commercial environment without government funding. I strongly doubt that they could survive in their present format.
Good riddance.

It will never happen. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

What really needs to happen is to find a way of making the ALPBC less biased. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

Less biased than what scepo ? - the Murdoch Press ? - Channels 7, 9, oand 10 ? - the Fairfax Press ?

You are aware that the ABC and SBS are audited twice yearly for evidence of bias and they have never been found to favour Labor. The audits have always shown a slight bias (ever so slight http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif ) towards the right.

http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_IMHO.png Channels 7, 9, and 10 and the Fairfax Press are all biased to the left. And by your own admission the Murdoch press swings both ways.


As for ALPBC and SBS being audited for bias twice yearly and never being found to favour Labor, the only way that could happen is that the auditors are biased to the left. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

You keep forgetting Bill that the vast majority of "journo's" are "progressive" left wingers. You could count the conservatives among them on one hand. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

You are so full of lefty propaganda Bill, lucky not everyone is stupid enough to believe all the garbage being pushed by the left - the ABC belongs in the gutter, or even better down the drain then washed way out to sea!

The ABC and SBS are audited by whom??

A panel of mixed up socialists maybe, who have a hatred of Anglo-Saxon men???
http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/rolleyes.gif

ABC is brainwashing kids with male hating feminist propaganda.



Feminist on Q&A says men can only join audience via Castration.

And by your own admission the Murdoch press swings both ways.

You need to qualify that scepo.

He supported Whitlam (Labor) in 1972 - the Libs were a hopeless inbred rabble then.

Fraser (Liberal) in 1974 and 1975.

Fraser (Liberal) in 1977 and 1980.

Hawke (Labor) in 1983, 1984 and 1987

Peacock (Liberal) in 1990. He was defeated by Keating.

Hewson (Liberal) in 1993. He was defeated by Keating.

Howard (Liberal) in 1996.

Howard (Liberal) in 1998, and 2001

Beasley (Labor) in 2004. He was beaten by Howard.

Rudd (Labor) in 2007

Abbott (Liberal) 2010. He was defeated by Gillard.

Abbott (Liberal)in 2013

Turnbull (Liberal) in 2016

Who knows who he'll support in 2018/2019. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif


Murdoch supported the election of 13 of those Prime Ministers out of 18 elections. Five Labor and 8 Liberal

The only ones to buck Ruperts preferred candidate were...

Whitlam - 1974
Keating 1990 and 1993
Howard in 2004. (not sure but I have a feeling he backed Beasley in 2001 as well. I didn't count it for that reason.)
Gillard in 2010.

Rupert liked Hawkey and Hawkey studied at the Harvard Business School - but that's another story. http://fairdinkumnewschat.com/biggrin.gif http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/lbill.gif

If it starts to look inevitable that Curly will win, Rupert will drop Turmbull like a hot potato. He only likes winners.
