When you think of Opposition Leader Bill Shorten, what words come to mind? A focus group convened for Fairfax Media developed some interesting words so today we want to know… Do you agree?

The exclusive focus group testing conducted by political market researcher, Tony Mitchelmore, showed that many people considered him lacking charisma with one person saying he is, “a ranting puppet obsessed with political point scoring”.

However, two words have proven more prominent than others… Wishy-washy and unknown.

When you think of Bill Shorten, do the words ‘wishy-washy’ and ‘unknown’ come to mind? Or do you think of something different?

The people in the focus group are swinging voters in an electorate that could vote either way depending on their favour at the time.

  1. The only thing keeping Bill Shorten as Leader of the ALP, is the “cretinous” Tony Abbott

    • Keeping Bill as leader is new rule ALP leaders can only be changed by a ballot of all members. So the ALP is stuck with the half- wit which is why the betting agencies have LNP favourite to win next election.

  2. I just think of him as the “Party Leader” but I could of a few one and 2 word terms for Abbott..but I will be polite

  3. Abbott needs to learn to walk. He is a good role model, he is fit, he volunteers and generally tries to fit in
