  • How's this for a hopeful headline in the Washington Post: http://auspol.info/dEHlkf #

  • Profile for @jen_whyte reads: "still having arguments with Nan about asylum seekers and climate change." #
  • That was almost worth a follow except that her last 6 tweets have been about cricket… #
  • @cjjosh Oh yes but there's no need to set the bar so low… #
  • @jen_whyte Get her to join Twitter – it's full of right-wingers she can have friendly conversations with… or is she the left-winger? #
  • @GrogsGamut I only keep you on the list so I can keep up with The Franklin Dialogues. #
  • @ben_hr Glad to know my role. #
  • @jen_whyte I like someone who believe in 'pick and stick'. #
  • @JonPowles Hehe… very good. #
  • @ben_hr @prestontowers @grogsgamut Sort of like a Down Under version of The Vagina Monologues? #
  • @smurray38 Remember the good old days when no self-respecting Tory would resign for anything so trivial. The decline of a once great party. #
  • @smurray38 Only if it was hanging of the auto-erotic asphyxiation type. #
  • John Ferguson remembers Victoria's bushfires to show what's in store for Queensland: http://auspol.info/fdv0FN #QldFloods #

  • Falling out of middle class into a life with less: http://auspol.info/f1af34 #
  • Shaun Carney perfectly captures the "Lessons for Gillard" http://auspol.info/fT4IzN #
  • @ben_hr How do you mean? #
  • @ben_hr Well, I think he's right. She's struggling, has been from the start. You seriously think the ALP is talking about anything else? #
  • @ben_hr We're all over the mindless commentary but there's no question they're wobbling like crazy. If she doesn't rescue it soon… #
  • @2FBS The ALP won't wear him again. Read Cassidy – he got it right on this point. Barring some catastrophic event, she won't be challenged. #
  • @2FBS Any challenge to Gillard, given the minority govt status and the manner of her rise, will immediately doom the govt. It's folly. #
  • @Prronto You've taken a comment out of a dialogue mid-stream. I'm all in favour of 'detailed chat'. #
  • @2FBS Well, there you go, you prove my point. I have the same reaction. I encounter many who do. She is in deep trouble but has time… #
  • @2FBS …has time to rescue it. I don't say she can't rescue it but the signs are not good so far. #
  • @ben_hr @Prronto @2FBS The danger for JG this week is this perception that others like Bligh outshine her, that she hasn't grown in the job. #
  • @2FBS @Prronto @ben_hr The "what does she stand for" line is legitimate. No-one in the ALP knows. #
  • @clubwah Who knows? I doubt it somehow – but there's the rub, JG is complicit in the ETS debacle. Maybe she can make a carbon price work. #
  • @ben_hr Exactly – the education stuff is just appalling – doesn't give you much confidence in her instincts. #
  • @ben_hr On the positive side, those who deal with her praise her highly – efficient, decisive, sensible, etc. Apparently the Cabinet works. #
  • @ben_hr It's whether she can juggle all those balls and post some achievements. She's still got time to do it, I think… #
  • @clubwah It's a carbon price in 12 months time or nothing. If they miss that, forget anything else. Even if they get it, Abbott is rampant. #
  • @tospeakofpebble There is no 67% – ever. Getting 51% is hard enough. #
  • @ben_hr Trouble is, you don't get the impression she's interested in much, doesn't read, never mentions anything in speeches.It's all trite. #
  • @ben_hr Every time I listen to Keating or Clinton, I learn something. I listen carefully. Same with Howard. Rudd to some extent. But JG? #
  • @tospeakofpebble I think Rudd's dumping puzzled people, didn't see it coming or understand why. But they'd gone off him anyway over ETS. #
  • @tospeakofpebble Exactly – he was only dumped because he'd lost support in polls. #
  • @tospeakofpebble This time 12 months ago we should have been having an election on the ETS. Rudd failed at that moment. #
