  • Sky News reporting that Malcolm Turnbull has confirmed he will recontest his seat of Wentworth. #
  • Turnbull quoted as saying he is "inspired", attacks Rudd on ETS, says coalition at least has a policy… #
  • So, any takers for an Abbott announcement this weekend of a shadow ministry for Turnbull? #
  • @GrogsGamut Time to dig up all those lines about flip floppers? in reply to GrogsGamut #
  • @JudeEkerick Not climate change. Tax reform could work but Hockey and Robb might have something to say about that. in reply to JudeEkerick #
  • @Drag0nista Neither, I would think. Hockey certainly wouldn't move. He needs some new portfolio which taps into current issues. in reply to Drag0nista #
  • @julie_posetti This is pretty tame stuff by the standards of Lazarus and John Howard. More like Brutus? in reply to julie_posetti #

  • Audio of Malcolm Turnbull's announcement that he will recontest Wentworth: http://bit.ly/bpt9td (slightly butchered by Sky News) #
  • Might Germany have been defeated earlier if Churchill had died? http://nyti.ms/cuOvMk – review & Ch1 of Max Hastings' book, "Winston's War". #
  • RT @Pollytics: I’ll see you a coward and raise you an idiot http://is.gd/bPsnA The ETS, DDs and rampant media ignorance. #
  • @Pollytics Post DD and prior to the Joint Sitting, the House and Senate must meet to pass and reject the bills a third time… in reply to Pollytics #
  • @Pollytics Based on 1974's DD (election May 18, Joint Sitting Aug 6-7) your dates would be pushed out even further. in reply to Pollytics #
  • We should all be indebted to @Pollytics for pointing out the problem with the commencement date in the ETS legislation and any DD. #
  • Unfortunately, the complexities of DDs, joint sittings & Senate polls are too complicated for most. Govt should be arguing this case better. #
  • RT @latikambourke: Lib source on Turnbull: 'After remission, the cancer is back.' #

  • So the readership of sites I visit is 53% conservative, 47% liberal… RT @ComplexNumber: How do you stack up? http://bit.ly/dkQkpf | Slate #
  • Slate says my "isolation index" is -14, meaning my news diet is 14 percentage points to the left. I don't get it either… @ComplexNumber #
  • I think it means I should stop visiting the ABC, Washington Post, New York Times and Huffington Post so that I get a more balanced diet… #
  • Mind you, -14 on the isolation index sounds pretty good for me. I thought it would place me in that parallel universe again. #
  • Just think where I'd be on the scale if I hadn't read that Andrew Bolt piece the other day… #
  • Of course, Slate isn't assessing Aust or UK sites. Add in those commo rags, The Age and Guardian, and I'd be sent to Coventry. #
