My Latest Twitter Updates

  • "Retrochic avifaunal detainment units" – nice one from @firstdogonmoon #
  • It's a lively Question Time in the Victorian Leg Assembly and the Speaker, Ken Smith, just suspended proceedings… #
  • So I turned to the Legislative Council and watched a few minutes of Inga Peulich and now Nazih Elasmar… #
  • This is why Steve Bracks has a lot to answer for. He had the chance to abolish the Council in 2003 and didn't take it. #
  • So back to the Assembly where order has been restored… #
  • RT @FarrahTomazin: #springst Labor to move dissent motion amid ongoing concern about Speaker's rulings. #
  • A reference to Werribee South in the Vic Leg Assembly – reminds me of Dame Edna's reference to Williamstown Heights, aka Altona. #
  • Challenging in the "Court of Dispute returns"? … RT @newscomau: Hanson won't give up, demands recount http://bit.ly/mMQ7PW #
  • Credibility time: Channel 10 news now uses Bolt in straight news stories – tonight on the killing of bin Laden. #
  • @NeilMcMahon It was a snub to Mitchell. #
  • @Pollytics Not going near it unless Kieran Gilbert is moderating. #
  • @pblakez Actually, Channel 10 news is much meatier than either 7 or 9. #
  • The Herald Sun's "social media editor" conveniently overlooks these tweets from Urbahn: http://auspol.info/lWO4IF http://auspol.info/jEK1oD #
  • @samanthamaiden 7.48pm & 8.08pm (AET) May 2 – If you use the web version of Twitter, hover over the day and you can see the time-stamp. #
  • @samanthamaiden His original tweet http://auspol.info/mQRR02 was 12.24pm our time. #
  • The Herald Sun article I was referring to just now: http://auspol.info/lAdHXn – "Twitter's easy access crucial to news", Isabelle Oderberg #
  • @samanthamaiden Yes, "convenient" more pejorative than I intended. This is my view: http://auspol.info/l8ORQS #
  • @samanthamaiden Yes – you can be an enthusiastic user of Twitter, as we both are, without believing it's a cure-all. #
  • @anaya_latter And notice the animals still don't get a say? Orwell was right. #

  • 6.30 with George Negus on 10 is looking pretty good these days, especially up against the inanity on 7 & 9. But can it last? #
  • @cjjosh Still far from my first port of call but if tonight's program is anything to go by it's offering some meat. #
  • @MrDenmore A big claim! #
  • "To be honest, I've never been convinced that there was such a person as Osama bin Laden" http://auspol.info/kGoLN7 #
  • 32 years ago today, Margaret Thatcher was elected Prime Minister. Her first remarks: http://auspol.info/liP3JN #
  • #Richo is having a thoroughly deserved go at Mamdouh Habib's stupidity and conspiracy theories. Then he called him Arbib. #
  • When the secret life of the US president bumps against his public life: http://auspol.info/jGSZsk – Slate #
  • Here's a very interesting speech on foreign affairs from Malcolm Turnbull: http://auspol.info/ksU4En #
  • Turnbull: Aust businessmen & women are thoroughly international & globalised .. our politicians & bureaucrats are much more inward looking. #
  • @acaderama Good to see your devotion to the cause, comrade… #
  • @lyndons @goldengateblond The Starr Report in 140 character segments just wouldn't be the same. http://auspol.info/maSzaz #

  • An Australian newsagency expects to sell out of all 12 copies of TIME magazine's Royal wedding edition… http://auspol.info/jMCDOf #
  • @randallgill You wouldn't think so. I saw a recent edition in the shop for around $14 – didn't seem right, what do you pay? #
  • @randallgill This was Time – not even a special edition. Mind you, it was in Borders where magazines seem to be an endangered species. #

  • @citizen_cam There is, but there's also a storage problem. #
  • @AOCarr I wonder, should I now put my 1972-75 Whitlam Govt Hansards on eBay? #
  • @melissasavage I will check the date and look it up. It may not be there because interjections are not recorded unless responded to. #
  • @NeilMcMahon I know – all those little things I've wanted to check for years but couldn't without lots of effort. #
  • @melissasavage I just read Winton Turnbull's valedictory speech from 1972. He was the country member in question. #
  • @katedoak Yes, I've never actually read the full text of that speech he made denouncing Menzies. Ah, so many gems to look up. #
  • @NeilMcMahon Hehe… I've just done a search but can't locate it. If I can track down the date it was said… #
  • @NeilMcMahon You'll love this – a debate in the House in 1973 on whether to televise Parlt. Don Cameron (Lib-Griffith) suggested excerpts… #
  • @NeilMcMahon ..and debates of great importance. Bert Kelly (The Modest Member of AFR fame) interjected: "Such as tariffs?" #
  • @rhysam All my tweets are submitted to Pagemasters first. #
  • I can't quite believe I'm sitting here at 2am reading Menzies's condolences for King O'Malley in the House on April 6, 1954… #

  • Menzies: "… but..in spite of all those dangerous attributes, he enjoyed great personal popularity in the Parliament." #
  • @richardtuffin This is a very dangerous website… should I start at 1901 or work my way backwards? #

  • @acaderama But Nick Clegg makes him look so good… #
  • @acaderama Poor Nick nothing. He deserves to be gobbled up by the monster and then the Lib Dems might wake up to themselves. #
  • @streligionVIC Just had a look at your website with the Scots Church address. You're right, most people have no idea. #
  • @acaderama Well, yes… will be interesting to see who's left after the next election. #
  • @streligionVIC They even renamed your seat Hotham! #
  • Tom Uren praises Gillard's compassion and new POW payments to be announced in next week's Budget: http://auspol.info/jaVJVA #
