My Latest Twitter Updates

  • @smurray38 @crazyjane13 Howard didn't address the Congress in 2001, as planned, just attended. 2002 speech: http://auspol.info/hUCYQT #
  • Kevin Rudd, Commentator-in-Chief: http://auspol.info/h3Mf8H – Graeme Dobell on DFAT communications. #
  • @Pollytics Careful, you're sounding like Paul Kelly when he said something similar about the Kernot defection… #
  • "I taught the President to handball," Gillard says (10 News), in that tone and style I've come to cringe at. Like an eager puppy dog. #
  • I don't believe I just saw Laurie Oakes dissolving an aspirin on 9 News to illustrate the government's dissolving support. #
  • @crazyjane13 Ooh look, Abbott does get in… #
  • @mikestuchbery And hope to die… #
  • @GrogsGamut A worthy addition to the video library. #
  • @Drag0nista And you dared to criticise the ALP tweets for continual blatant self-promotion! #
  • @NewtonMark I'd make it myself except I haven't got round to playing with my whiz-bang capture card yet… #
  • "The big reforms of the past…like reducing tariffs…" Is that all she thinks they did? #7 30 #
  • So this is the pattern for the new #730 – an interview with a politician and then an explanation of what they meant from Uhlmann. Ugh. #
  • "We'll talk tomorrow." They're going to do this every day. I suppose it makes for a cheap program this way. #730 #
  • @geeksrulz They're not watching it anyway! But those of us who do are being patronised yet again. #
  • @bharm0 Not growing, just confirmed daily. I've been saying this since the election. Samples: http://auspol.info/9a8mxJ #
  • David Brooks on "The New Humanism": http://auspol.info/dXLA2V #
  • The discussion about teachers is the same the world over: http://auspol.info/gD5Eqd (New York Times letters) #
  • Pauline Hanson nominates for the NSW Legislative Council election: http://auspol.info/gdakoC #
  • And in an unrelated matter, here are the public funding rules for NSW elections: http://auspol.info/gIrpbI #
  • Unlike federal elections, you actually have to spend the money first in order to claim reimbursement in NSW. Nowhere near as lucrative. #
  • @einspruch If it does it's a terrible reflection on Andrew Peacock… #
  • @rickeyre She's committed to public service and the democratic process? #
  • @DanielleCronin She's taken up walking? #
  • @geeksrulz Her ticket is restricted to spending $1,050,000 and will be part-reimbursed for this if they poll 4%. It's not like federal. #
  • @rod_benson Did you see this spelling mistake I posted last night? http://twitpic.com/472oez – my local Anglican Church… #
  • @GrogsGamut The NSW Leg Council is the closest thing we've got to a House of Lords. #

  • What President Newt Gingrich would do on his first day in office: http://auspol.info/ijaPkb #
  • Tony Windsor on #Lateline some people believe they're going to get a carbon tax bill from the Tax Office. #
  • Of course, the Tax Office are "ego-tripping mongrels": http://auspol.info/hetFmt #
  • @awelder No, the NSW rules are quite different. She can only claim back expenditure incurred, and not necessarily all of it. #
  • @awelder Fact sheet here: http://auspol.info/gIrpbI #
  • @CharlesMaddison Definitely Mechelle. At least she knows where the bodies are buried. #

  • @WolvesHQ That's what I'm after – can't tolerate the AM sound any more. #

  • @Kimbo_Ramplin All website archives pure digital from now on! #

  • @wombat1974 You can stream them from the website though. #
  • @Colvinius @wombat1974 I used TuneinRadio on the iPad for the month I was itinerant, often for hours at a time. Only used 3gb bandwidth. #
  • @wombat1974 @Colvinius The big test will come at 5.10pm on RN tomorrow. I expect a much improved sound. #

  • When Energy Efficiency Sullies the Environment: http://auspol.info/hlXr44 – we spend proportionately as much on light as people in 1700. #
  • @henkluf I haven't really decided what to do with the sheet music. Might have given the wrong impression that night. Need to sort it first. #
