Discuss the Questions Here are the questions our panel faced this week. Tell us what your answer would be or what you think our panellists need to say. LEADERSHIP SPILL 1 Jack Abadee asked: Should Tony Abbott stand down as Prime Minister because he has lost the trust of the people with 30 straight newspoll losses and will now struggle to be effective? What do you think? LEADERSHIP SPILL 2 David Hynd asked: If the Liberal Party replace Tony Abbott with Malcolm Turnbull and the polls don’t improve, will we see a repeat of the Rudd Gillard Rudd saga or will another contender emerge? QUESTION FROM THE FLOOR An audience member asked: This is probably a question which will bring Joan into the discussion as well and it’s the word hope and having a positive attitude to, yes, we have a great country. There’s wonderful things we can do in Australia and I am wondering what the people feel the role of hopelessness and the message coming out with sniggering about misfortunes at our indigenous pacific islanders and our neighbours who are facing crisis with global warming that hopelessness was there and the laughter, where as the message of hope that Joan you with your music speak truths, showing where there is injustices and speaking out of injustices and speaking the message of hope. LEADERSHIP SPILL-3 Andy Kelk asked: Now that we’ve got our third first-term PM in just five years, is this the new political reality? If so, how can any government expect to be in office long enough to make real change? QUESTION FROM THE FLOOR An audience member asked: Has the two party political system become irrevocably corrupted due to back of house financiers? LEADERSHIP SPILL-4 Jordan Smith asked: Now that Malcolm Turnbull is Prime Minister, how will that affect the Labor party's strategy for the upcoming election? SYRIA BOMBING – AUSTRALIA TERROR TARGET Bouran Almiziab asked: According to the Guardian "The air campaign against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has killed more than 450 civilians." Will Australia joining the US in this campaign increase the likelihood of Australia being targeted in Terrorist attacks in the future? FOLLOW UP QUESTION Follow up question from Bouran Almiziab: They are brutal, they are the worst kind of people but before ISIS ten’s of thousand's of people were killed.Why wasn’t there any kind of intervention before? Why the spotlight on ISIS only? Ten’s of thousands of Syrians have been killed in jails, why is it only ISIS being targeted, why isn’t the Assad regime targeted as well? ASSAD IS FIGHTING ISIS A video question from Shadie Taled: Statistics suggest that most Syrians, my father included, support Dr Bashar Al Assad, even though he has been labelled by the West as a dictator, despite the lack of information and evidence to suggest so. If we genuinely cared about Syrian citizens and were serious about combating ISIS, why haven't we considered supporting Dr Assad who has been fighting ISIS for years? SYRIAN ASYLUM SEEKERS – RELIGION Alwalid Miziab asked: Syrian Sunni Muslims who make about 80% of Syria's population were the ones most affected in the situation in Syria, why is Australia choosing its refugees on ethnic and religious grounds excluding from its intake the most affected refugees? WHY DIDN'T WE OVERCOME? Tao de Haas asked: I was there in the 60s when you sang “we shall overcome”. Your songs expressed the spirit of the time, we felt hope, were inspired, marched against the war in Vietnam, it seemed the beginning of a new era. But now I am in my 60s and the world seems to have become worse. Unprecedented devastation, and corporatization of our planet, more animals killed every year, human right violations have led to the highest number of refugees in human history. Do you feel despair personally or do you still feel “deep in your heart that we shall overcome”?
