Very confident that it will proceed. The State Labor government still has a role to play in the final approval but I believe they will probably now look past the endangered finch that had been a problem previously.

As for the internet, can you explain what National Broadband Network is, and how it is funded. Heck, it was the largest infrastructure project in Australia's history

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intern...adband_Network

The National Broadband Network was initially a fibre to the home (FTTH) open-access network in planning and trial operation in Australia by the federal government. The national broadband network aimed to provide up to 1000 Mbit/s speeds and to connect to 93% of Australian households and businesses
Try this link if you want to understand why your claim that the Coalition is the driving force behind the NBN is laughable. The lefties would run you out of town for that claim over here. Being the driving force behind the NBN is a badge of honour for the left and something the coalition is beaten over the head for lack of support and winding back the scope of the project historically.

Your understanding of the history of the health systems is equally superficial and demonstrates not even a basic understanding of what conservatism is.

Trump LOVES polls, and probably trusts them too.

And have been proven over and over what a lousy job they do at it.

The left also controls our culture by controlling our education system, our entertainment industry, academia, and social media. It’s an uphill battle for conservatives to get the truth out or opposing viewpoints without being censured or drowned out.

Progressive politicians like to assume that, on election day at least, blue-collar workers and urban progressives will bridge their differences, and make common cause to support leftist economic policies. This assumption might once have been warranted. But it certainly isn’t now—in large part because the intellectuals, activists and media pundits who present the most visible face of modern leftism are the same people openly attacking the values and cultural tastes of working and middle-class voters. And thanks to social media (and the caustic news-media culture that social media has encouraged and normalized), these attacks are no longer confined to dinner-party titterings and university lecture halls. Brigid Delaney, a senior writer for Guardian Australia, responded to Saturday’s election result with a column about how Australia has shown itself to be “rotten.” One well-known Australian feminist and op-ed writer, Clementine Ford, has been fond of Tweeting sentiments such as “All men are scum and must die.” Former Australian Race Discrimination Commissioner Tim Soutphommasane, who also has served as a high-profile newspaper columnist, argues that even many mainstream political positions—such as expressing concern about the Chinese government’s rising regional influence—are a smokescreen for racism.

How much more of this do some people need to see before they realize and accept that the leftist media is aggressively trying push a political propaganda agenda through its news coverage?

The Coalition brags about how many more people they have hooked up to the network. The point is that it is a socialist project, and the Coalition is 100% on board, and same goes with other left leaning issues in your country.

If you think they represent pure conservatism, then perhaps you simply don't know the meaning of the word. I simply said they are on par with US Dems, so I guess it depends what you compare them to. European conservatives are the same way, since they are nowhere near as far right as US conservatives.

Like I said: they are what they are. They are not crystal balls, which reveal what will happen in the future.

Center Right and Center Left win consistently in the USA as in Australia
Our current politics is far from the center on both sides, apparently Australia is not.
I fail to see the significance here.

They do not represent "Pure conservatism," unless you rightly define pure conservatism as being practical, responsible, restrained, thoughtful and cautious, taking a holistic view of all the stakeholders and priorities that they need to be considerate of, and not being beholden to to some rigid radical ideological and power seeking agenda, the way that the globalist (Democrat) socialist left clearly is.
