My Latest Twitter Updates

  • "Where are the young people?" a man asks Abbott at a Liberal Party forum. Talk about the elephant in the room for political parties. #
  • @Trisha_Jha Excuse my scepticism but I would have thought that would attract hordes of young people these days… #
  • @seearjay The halt, the blind and the lame! #
  • @Trisha_Jha Bigger problem for all parties & many other community groups is the lack of joining these days. Parties are ageing & ossifying. #
  • @imurch As Sir Humphrey said, always get rid of the difficult bit in the title. #
  • Abbott says war, injustice and man's inhumanity to man are important moral issues. Climate change matters but important to keep perspective. #
  • Abbott: Parties that promise one thing before an election and then change their mind are engaged in a conspiracy against the people. #
  • Nothing gets done for the pensioners or the nurses & hospitals but we spend money on beds in detention centres, a Liberal lady tells Abbott. #
  • "I'm not a racist," she points out. #
  • It's not easy to turn all the boats around, says Abbott, but it can be done and needs to be done humanely. Like Howard did. #
  • We would not play politics on this if the government was prepared to act, says Abbott on the boats. #
  • And now the loons are lecturing me… #
  • @wombat1974 It wasn't you! #
  • Looking forward to launch of This Day Tonight at 7.30. Revolutionary new current affairs show. They have a host. And reporters. #
  • @rhysam Just confidentially, I've heard they may even be covering Canberra politics and interviewing politicians… #
  • @DarrenFerrari There's no need to be scatalogical. #
  • @FOXTEL Any thoughts on why my Foxtel app for the iPhone can no longer connect with my IQ boxes? Recently moved, worked fine before. #
  • After 90 minutes on the phone to a Foxtel operator, call backs, reinstallation of the app, etc, the technical dept fixes problem in 1 minute #
  • RT @FOXTEL: Hey- if you have recently moved it needs to be linked up again. You should call Customer Support to organise this. #
  • .@FOXTEL I did. I even left a message to this Twitter account. Customer support spent 90 minutes on it – technical support 90 seconds. #
  • .@FOXTEL The technicians who installed my 2 points managed to disconnect my phone and had to come back to fix it. #
  • .@FOXTEL Now I find the phone link they installed for interactive services on the IQ doesn't work. I'm being mailed a new attachment. #
  • .@FOXTEL I have had excellent service from Foxtel for 14 years but this involuntary move to new premises has been a nightmare. Hours wasted. #
  • @FOXTEL Thanks for that. Are you aware that Bigpond waives the transfer charges for people forced to move due to flooding? #
  • @luzenz I'm not that critical – always had good service from them. These problems when moving must be common yet operators cannot solve. #
  • Do I genuflect now? #
  • Bagging the Defence Department has now become the preferred option for the launch of all new ABC stations and programs. #
  • @GrogsGamut But the past 3 months of The 7.30 Report have been superb. I want to know what they've done with Heather Ewart & Scott Bevan. #
  • My bank account is carbon neutral. #
  • @MulchNet Got it in one! #
  • RT @GChristensenMP: Speech on cutting #foriegnaid I gave to the #NationalCivicCouncil conference on Sunday. http://tinyurl.com/492jxc6 #
  • Just as well he doesn't want to cut foreign aid… #
  • That was a great episode of Nationwide. #
  • @GrogsGamut And earlier: http://auspol.info/eOUIzl #
  • The local Anglican church is highly political and highly literate: http://twitpic.com/472oez #
  • @kcarruthers The vicar studied zoology. #
  • Gillard with Beazley in Washington. They've got more in common than we ever realised. #
  • Just send the others home and leave us with Mike Carlton. #qanda #
  • @Captainsuburbia He's still walking with a stick – that fall seems to have done permanent damage. #
  • We don't want to go down that road, says Tony Jones. Bit late for John Newman and Arthur Calwell. #qanda #
  • Joe Hockey, the man who's spent years worrying about the representation of women on corporate boards. #qanda #
  • @geeksrulz I suppose it's one way of getting rid of Julie Bishop. #
  • @hindle You'd have to agree, 20 minutes in, that it could only be an improvement on this drivel we're watching. #
  • Thank goodness the students at Sydney Girls are in favour of female suffrage. #qanda #
  • Is Joe Hockey supporting Julie Bishop for the Liberal leadership? #qanda #
  • RT @CUhlmann: Rumour mill rife with talk that Newspoll is catastrophic for Labor. Talk that ALP primary now 30 and Gillard approval -15. #
  • @mrtiedt You don't need a Newspoll to know that Gillard is leading the ALP to a dreadful defeat. #
  • "The actual documentation that has to be done"…. quick, someone buy Westpac a copy of Microsoft Office. #qanda #
  • @mrtiedt They don't have to tire of him… #
  • That's a bit optimistic, isn't it, announcing Gillard for next week's #qanda #
  • RT @GhostWhoVotes: #Newspoll 2 Party Preferred: ALP 46 (-4) LNP 54 (+4) #auspol #

  • RT @GhostWhoVotes: #Newspoll Price on Carbon: Support 47 Opposed 49 #auspol #
  • RT @GhostWhoVotes: #Newspoll Best to lead Labor Party: Gillard 37 Rudd 44 #auspol #
  • @geeksrulz You're surely not surprised? This has been obvious since the election. #
  • @geeksrulz You're missing the point – they don't have to like him to vote for him. Can't you see what a disaster Gillard is? #
  • @sspencer_63 Gillard has what it takes to get it under 30. #
  • The Australian: Labor falls to historic lows http://auspol.info/gRqImz #

  • @AshGhebranious My father had that record – I haven't heard it in decades! #
  • @sspencer_63 Not at all. I think she's a dud and I've thought so since the election. #
  • @sspencer_63 Don't put words into my mouth – I've never suggested a return to Rudd. It's untenable. He started this malaise. #
  • RT @GhostWhoVotes: The #Newspoll tables: http://bit.ly/h7DRAy #auspol #

  • "There's something profoundly wrong, and symbolically wrong, about a university destroying books." http://auspol.info/eyhe10 #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin And those historic 19th century newspapers. Whither the basement stacks now? #
