  • Bob Brown: "There is a move to the right in the ALP and it's very frightening and worrying." #730Report #
  • One of the most disturbing things about Gillard's use of the "political correctness" label is its origins as a term to disparage equality. #
  • My first memory of the term "political correctness" was as a term to justify racial and sexual discrimination. It demeans Gillard to use it. #
  • @brynnobrien More so, it's a term used by the cynical to exploit the ignorant. in reply to brynnobrien #
  • Prior to the caucus meeting, the only genuine news on Twitter about the Rudd #spill was Kate Lundy announcing her support for Gillard. #
  • And @samanthamaiden broke the result a couple of minutes ahead of the official announcement. #
  • Everything else was merely noise… #
  • A Twitter electorate? That must be the new seat in Queensland… #730Report #
  • @samanthamaiden Hehe… 2, 5, 10, you got the news out first and good on you for that. But Twitter did not shape the event in any way. in reply to samanthamaiden #
  • Speak for yourself… RT @urbancreature: if there were such a thing as the Twitter electorate, Justin Bieber would be PM. #
  • RT @j_marce: @mfarnsworth and not to be too cheeky, but if twitter that night was 'just noise' you were hardly a trappist! #
  • Oh, indeed, @j_marce, but I don't pretend that its revolutionised the political process. I just like thinking aloud! #
  • @j_marce That's true and it's all very exciting – I just think you need to be wary of confusing fast-flowing snippets with understanding. in reply to j_marce #
  • @smurray38 You'd better write him a letter… in reply to smurray38 #
  • @smurray38 You'll be Chief Justice yet! in reply to smurray38 #
  • @mumbletwits "The Opposition Leader, Mr. Mulder…" doesn't have quite the same ring to it. in reply to mumbletwits #
  • @smurray38 I hadn't heard those. And you'll need to explain the beehives to me… in reply to smurray38 #
  • Poor Tony Abbott. Morris says he now has to do it all again but it's hard to attack a female politician. #qanda #
  • George Brandis would no doubt fancy himself as a constitutional lawyer but he doesn't understand how the PM is elected. #qanda #
  • Don't you love the way Liberals use the word "bosses" as a pejorative when they're talking about the ALP? But mining company bosses…? #
  • "…a real person in touch with the core of his personality…" Kernot goes down the psychobabble path. #qanda #
  • Brandis: "Rudd jumped onto the factions and rode them like a jockey." #qanda #
  • Brandis speaks almost exclusively in cliches. He can talk cliches until the cows come home. #qanda #
  • Kernot: "You do need friends in Canberra. It's a difficult, lonely life." #qanda #
  • @empatt Not at all – it was very silly! in reply to empatt #
  • Western Sydney: Australia's answer to Peoria. #qanda #
  • Take Graham Morris off Sky News and he just doesn't look as good. #qanda #

  • @JennyEjlak But it was always Gough… in reply to JennyEjlak #
  • It's Downer time. #Lateline #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin He'll always be the leader to me… in reply to Kimbo_Ramplin #
  • It only took 2 minutes and Downer attacked the "bourgeois inner city elites". #Lateline #
  • RT @Matt_Kunkel: Has Downer fixed up those problems in Cyprus yet? #lateline #
  • According to Downer, Rudd was "scythed down" by the faction bosses. Haven't heard that one before. #Lateline #
  • @JanetteHowardPM And quite right too. They do a much better afternoon tea. in reply to JanetteHowardPM #
  • Downer says it's quite a bad look to be disposed of by party chieftains, but it's okay for that to happen in Opposition. #Lateline #
  • Troy Bramston says former Labor Senator Arthur Gietzelt was a communist, monitored for decades by ASIO: http://auspol.info/9KLP0K #

  • @theburgerman Ah, "there are questions that need answers." So Keating said, "if the answer's Liberal, it must have been a silly question." in reply to theburgerman #
  • @theburgerman Were you whinging Wendy's whinging son? in reply to theburgerman #
  • @lapuntadelfin Perhaps she's a whinging grannie in Western Sydney? in reply to lapuntadelfin #
