Hey, don't knock on Frankston, man. Try driving through St Albans in the middle of the night in a relatively new German car.

Adelaide kicks Perth's ass in so many different ways.

 

Although in terms of traffic congestion, in a few years Adelaide could get worse.

Frankston is the South-East's answer to a lot of the West, North-West Melbourne suburbs. Broadmeadows is pretty much a reflection of Frankston, except one is full of Arabs/Wogs and the other with Bogans. It should be fairly obvious to most Melbournians here which is which. turn.gif

 

Thank God I live in the East. The atmosphere and vibe may be sh*t, but if I want that I'll just go to the city.

I mean, what type of leader announces pre-election about no carbon tax then plugs it in further down the track? Unbelievably despicable.

@ Jay, When I have morning classes it takes me ages to get into the city, despite calling for a taxi at 8:00am and only living about 20 minutes away. I don't get there into about 9:00am

Maybe that's why Adelaide is known as "The city of churches". tounge2.gif

I tend to find what happens frequently is that we elect a Labor PM, then they waste all of our money so we elect a Liberal PM, then they have to raise our taxes to pay back the debt and everyone gets pissed and re-elects a Labor PM and the cycle begins again.

That is completely and utterly false. Wait until you're 18 and hopefully you'll understand Australian politics a bit more clearly...

 

I'm biased, though, as a member of one of the two major parties, but I'll just put it succinctly and say that the primary divisions nowadays between the ALP and the Liberals is that the ALP naturally support unions and will inherently push for economic policies which appease the majority of unionised employees, whereas the Liberals tend to favour pro-market and pro-business policies which seek to minimise mitigating regulations of different sectors of the Australian economy, hence their opposition to the carbon tax and the MRRT. The ALP's current economic platform, though, has to appease the Greens because they hold the balance of power in both the House of Reps and the Senate, but that most certainly will change post August 2013 when the Coalition will blitzkrieg the living sh*t out of Labor.

 

You've noticed that I have not given much notice to the Greens, and I haven't because they don't deserve much notice to begin with. tounge.gif

 

EDIT: On the topic of Franga-Banga, I never found Frankston to be that bad. Quite a few people from my old school lived around the area (primarily from Mount Eliza, Mount Martha, Langwarrin, etc.) and their families were certainly far from the stereotypical Frankston family, socio-economically at least.

You may be right, I've been brought up in a highly Liberal-biased environment and I think because of this ill always be voting for Liberal in 2 years.

EDIT: On the topic of Franga-Banga, I never found Frankston to be that bad. Quite a few people from my old school lived around the area (primarily from Mount Eliza, Mount Martha, Langwarrin, etc.) and their families were certainly far from the stereotypical Frankston family, socio-economically at least.

The classical view is that the Labor party supports the working-class, whereas the Liberal party supports businesses and basically those who fall into the upper-class category. Labor is typically a centre-left party, but in recent years their policies reflect an increasing trend to the right. I will never vote for the Liberals for as long as I live, unless their party somehow undergoes a major transformation. I don't mind a few of the Liberal politicians (Malcolm Turnbull was very sensible), but often their own views are clouded by overall party policy. The fact is, when my family first migrated to Australia, we were very poor. My grandparents worked long hours in a range of factories for many years in order to provide for their family. I believe that the Liberals have always tried to exploit the working-class, and the Howard era was a prime example of this. That is why unions were so important. Their influence today is fairly limited, but they were the bone and flesh of the workplace for the past few centuries. Labor is a mere shadow of its' former self, and so too is Australian politics at large.

 

I come from a very pro-Labor family, but I basically see things for what they are. My bias is limited and I criticise both parties. But to vote for the Liberal party would be in-directly spitting on the efforts of my family which have provided me with everything I need. I will always be more to the 'left' because I believe in supporting the working class, who will always be the majority. Even if I become a rich, self-employed business owner, I sincerely hope I can stand by my beliefs.

 

There is no doubt that the Liberal party will win the next federal election (unless something drastic occurs), but I don't think it'll be too long before Labor returns to government. With Tony Abbott at the reigns, we are going to see a repeat of the Howard years. If any form of workchoices are re-introduced, the balance between the working-class and upper-class will go to the sh*ts. Let's just hope that they don't win too much of a majority in the House.

 

I've been interested in politics from a very young age and wanted to be a politician for a number of years. Who knows where life will take me now, but if I ever end up following that path, god forbid I end up like the half-wits who are our current political figureheads.

Narre Warren would have to come a close second though, you literally stick out like a sore thumb if you're not driving an early-model Commodore which is lower than the Mariana's Trench.

Narre really isn't that bad. I can think of worse, namely Broadmedows and St Alban's.

I suppose that crime rates would be higher in the latter two, but the number of sh*t-stains driving crappy cars in a completely ridiculous manner just ruins Narre for me. I've spent a lot of time in St Albans, so I suppose that that's kind of mitigated its poor reputation for me, and truth be told, I've actually never been to Broady. Then again, I don't really have a reason to visit there.

 

Most areas of Melbourne, even the ones with a poor reputation (i.e. Frankston, Dandenong, Footscray) aren't even that bad in comparison to slum-like neighbourhoods in cities like New York and Los Angeles. They're real ghettos with endemic social problems; the ones we've mentioned are just packed with vagrants who make their life seem much worse than it actually is. You'd be surprised as to how many Mercedes and BMWs you'd see in Dandenong South...

 

Having said all of that, though, I f*cking love Melbourne.

Agreed. I'm originally from Frankston and I moved about 20km north when I was about 7. Believe it or not, I copped a lot of sh*t for being from Frankston (or the clichéd Franghanistan which is seriously getting old) and to be honest I still do. But Frankston has improved dramatically in the 10 years or so that I've not loved their for. The beach at the bottom of Oliver's Hill is beautiful and Main Street is hustling and bustling every day of the week with activity.

 

When people think of Frankston they tend to think of, as you mentioned, '89 VN Commodores and drug addicts but it's nowhere near as bad as that.
