My Latest Twitter Updates

  • RT @BernardKeane: Did Abbott draft a speech or just assume he wouldn't be granted leave? Seems like the latter. This is dreadful. #
  • RT @jamesmassola: Lots of Labor MPs listening to Tony. Usual practice is one side walks out when other side is speaking #qt #
  • Abbott says the ETS would raise "the cost of life"… #
  • RT @BernardKeane: I can't quite follow the thread of Abbott's speech but he's probably got one good TV grab so far. #
  • I might be wrong but I don't think Abbott was prepared for this speech. It's meandering and hectoring. It's certainly not on HIS policy. #
  • This is the Daily Telegraph front page that Abbott has held up several times today: http://twitpic.com/10z063 #
  • The speech may be all over the place but Abbott's ability to brawl and deliver a couple of simple messages should not be underestimated. #
  • Rudd rises to speak… #
  • Rudd moves an amendment to censure Abbott for being a weather-vane and bringing forth a climate change con job… #
  • Rudd argues that everything hinges on whether the science of climate change is accepted or not and reminds us of the "crap" line again… #
  • "Climate con job" gets another run from Rudd… his themes as obvious as Abbott's. Put this debate down as a dry-run for many to come. #
  • Abbott is not credible because there is no cap in Abbott's plan says Rudd and a loud interjector in the gallery takes over… #
  • Rudd: Abbott isn't credible because he doesn't believe the science, he doesn't believe in making the polluters pay and he doesn't compensate #
  • Pyne speaks on the motion… members depart the chamber… and Greg Hunt is nowhere to be seen. #
  • @bennpackham Longer-term, I think he would have advanced his career more by refusing to take this job. in reply to bennpackham #
  • RT @jamesmassola: Combet continues attack on Hunt who "believed in climate science" #qt #
  • Which Question Time were you at? RT @JoeHockey: KR looked rattled and didn't like qs abt his ETS #
  • @jamesmassola I presume Andrews is the one with the leash? in reply to jamesmassola #
  • Hunt unleashed! #
  • Gillard a rising star: Cassidy http://bit.ly/cQQFp1 Gillard a political dill: Ellis http://bit.ly/cpfBPG #
  • Joyce: I will not have a personality transplant just because I'm a shadow minister… #Lateline #
  • Still, there wasn't a single swinging voter watching that interview… and "we" all laughed at Hanson once… #
  • RT @sarahinthesen8: Joyce says climate change policy will work because of "the greed factor".. Isn't that the Libs policy for everything? #
  • @RicRaftis But you told me you won't reach retiring age for another couple of decades… in reply to RicRaftis #
  • In my first month with an iPhone, I used 460mb of data (1gb plan). Phone coverage good, even in country areas. Speed okay. Tick for Optus. #
  • And I'm not touching that one, @jaseygalore… #
  • @bleeters I suppose you've got international roaming down there? in reply to bleeters #
  • @feneleyinlondon $79 chapeaux, $600 appels inclus, SMS illimité libre, MMS in reply to feneleyinlondon #

  • @JamesHunter6789 Most of that on Twitter, newspapers, a handful of YouTube videos. Now I have a sense of what I can get away with. in reply to JamesHunter6789 #
  • @JamesHunter6789 And I've got 90 apps… but only bought 4 of them. in reply to JamesHunter6789 #
  • @feneleyinlondon Comme Sybil Fawlty l'a mis : "Prétentieux, moi ? " in reply to feneleyinlondon #
  • @feneleyinlondon Yes, I'd been paying Vodafone $69 for the Nokia N95 for $300 of calls. The Optus deal seemed the best around. in reply to feneleyinlondon #
  • Speaking of iPhone apps, doe anyone know if it's worth paying $4-99 for The Guardian app? #
  • … does… #
  • @katedoak I noticed the mantra in telco shops these days is "Telstra has the coverage but not the deals". in reply to katedoak #
  • @JamesHunter6789 Yes, I've got cable at home, so any heavy-duty downloading is done there. in reply to JamesHunter6789 #
  • @benharrisroxas I suppose it's not *very* much to pay… it's just that when the others are $1.19 you feel like it's exorbitant! in reply to benharrisroxas #
  • Together In Fear and Trembling: http://bit.ly/bG4qsT – another of the pieces from Outlook India. Disturbing, but I smiled at Foots Cray. #
  • @katedoak Telstra's pricing policy is inspired by Teddy Roosevelt: "if you've got them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow." in reply to katedoak #
  • A retrospective law, like the way Howard used to do taxes on gold mining… #

  • @smurray38 I think the reason is "Advertiser"… in reply to smurray38 #
  • "People Power Wins", says Adelaide Now http://bit.ly/bm9AT7 – unctuous, dishonest, venal bastards. #

  • … just practising vocabulary … #
  • RT @feneleyinlondon: Brown wants Aust voting system. Smart idea but probably won't fly. http://bit.ly/avO4Bo #
  • @feneleyinlondon Reading that article, it doesn't look like the Lib Dems could be relied on for a preference swap… in reply to feneleyinlondon #
  • @feneleyinlondon I feel a "I'm also contemptuous of sanctimonious minor parties" mood coming on! in reply to feneleyinlondon #
  • Did "freedom of speech" win in SA tonight? No, a Murdoch tabloid with a crappy blog cowed a govt into submission on election eve. Spare me. #
  • RT @theburgerman: How long it will take Labor digital strategists/ghosts to click to the fact that the link is wrong on Keneally's website? #
  • Oh dear… http://bit.ly/cWMG36 #
