  • Obama and Michael Vick: http://auspol.info/hv2vZi #
  • Most of those Sidney Awards essays are pay-walled in some way but not the one on Churchill: http://auspol.info/etSjTy #
  • @argumentalist I know – it says a lot about the assignment mentality approach to tertiary education. Treating symptoms not the disease. #
  • @smurray38 Perhaps Oakeshott is a "romantic visionary in constitutional spectacles"? #

  • Shaun Carney sees problems for big policy reforms in the digital age: http://auspol.info/g3aLTm – he's become very pessimistic of late! #
  • @smurray38 But will anyone tell Keneally that defeat could be a blessing in disguise? #
  • @brettwp Well, possibly! But I was referring to that line of Churchill's when his wife told him his 1945 defeat was a blessing in disguise.. #

  • @smurray38 @brettwp Whereas this time the big issue will be whether the Federal party has the gumption to intervene to clean up the NSW ALP. #
  • @smurray38 Yes but this time the ALP will be so decimated and discredited nothing it says for years will matter. #
  • @smurray38 Some of them may be gone from Parliament but that's not where the cleanout has to take place. #
