My Latest Twitter Updates

  • RT @PollBludger: Essential: Labor would lead 53-47 if Rudd was leader. As it stands: 55-45 to Coalition. http://bitly.com/fhcw9R #
  • And if my uncle was a woman he'd be my auntie… @PollBludger #
  • @KateAPaterson Never fear, there'll probably be a mass defection tomorrow, coupled with an outbreak of the plague. #
  • @KateAPaterson Life is uncertain: http://auspol.info/iF3sOm #
  • Alister Drysdale: Small victories a hard sell for Gillard http://auspol.info/kvhRV7 #
  • Today's Essential Report poll: LNP 55, ALP 45; no change. And they prefer Rudd/Turnbull to Gillard/Abbott. http://auspol.info/as3bZC #
  • @smurray38 Good heavens… #
  • Why the web needs HTML5: http://auspol.info/iCVGdd – quite an interesting layman's account. #JustAsMuchFunAsPolitics #
  • The By-Election Lottery: http://auspol.info/kvVDme – some thoughts on Tony Abbott's chances of gaining office via a by-election. #
  • @John_Hanna Not so delighted that my detailed knowledge seems to be stuck in HTML1… #
  • Here's Peter Garrett getting himself tied up in knots defending another Howard government policy that should have been abolished. #abc730 #
  • @conceravota What makes you think that? #
  • @conceravota Well don't blame me for what the media does! #
  • @conceravota That's true to some extent but I would argue it's due to a lack of political skill on the govt's part as much as anything else. #
  • @conceravota Well no, it involves quite different skills. The govt's problems are entirely of their own making. #
  • @conceravota And my view of sections of the media is perfectly clear: http://mfarnsworth.info/ #
  • @conceravota Well, who knows? It's easy and somewhat patronising for us to sit here and presume to know how the electorate is bred! #
  • @conceravota In any case, I think most of this stuff passes by most of the electorate. They vote, they change govts, & I suspect they think. #
  • @conceravota That's simplistic and most definitely patronising. Those 'average' people have a pretty good record of choosing good govts… #
  • @conceravota … and getting rid of bad ones. Sometimes I agree with what they do, sometimes not. No point impugning their intelligence. #
  • @conceravota I agree entirely that 'meaningful analysis' is often hard to find. You need to be selective in what you read/watch/listen… #
  • @conceravota …but there's nothing new in that. These things have been said for as long as I can remember. #
  • @conceravota What disturbs me more is pro-Labor people who don't accept that the govt's problems are more internal than external. #
  • @Paul_MJ Political success is hardly measured by the number of bills passed… What would you attribute their difficulties to? #
  • Apocalyptic warning from Ross Cameron: Lee Rhiannon is not just a vegetarian but patron of the NSW Vegans Association. #LateAgenda #
  • @darrenlaver Couldn't agree more about Abbott. But the govt's policy confusion (esp on climate change) is the root of its difficulties. #
  • It's not like the NY Times to give such uncritical credence to the nonsense of Klout, Twitter Grader, et al. http://auspol.info/msPhnh #
  • Since when has an audience had to reflect Newspoll? RT @abcqanda: In the #qanda studio audience tonight: ALP 32%, COALITION 40%, GREENS 15%. #
  • @greenat15 More like misdirected capitulation to pressure to adhere to a narrow definition of "balance". #
  • @greenat15 I wonder if the panel is vetted in the same way? #
  • @conceravota Labor has always had to fight for a fair hearing in the media. Whitlam, Hawke & Keating found ways to do it. This lot can't. #
  • @darrenlaver We obviously lived through different times. The media treatment of Whitlam was far worse than anything you see today. #
  • @deniswright I'm hanging out for Spooks on UKTV! #
  • Wasn't this last week's program? And the week before? And the week before that? #QandA #
  • A colossal disappointment. #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin What have I done now?! #
  • Mark Antony… #QandA #
  • @adrallud It's that other play, Julian Caesar. #
  • "History will tell you a by-election is inevitable." Someone wrote about that today: http://auspol.info/kvVDme #QandA #
  • @Patrickavenell An imposter. #
  • "A bye bye election" – now that's kind of funny… #
  • @randallgill And six or so years before that in the NSW parliament. A record that we can be sure will never be broken. #
  • We don't believe you, Joe! #QandA #
  • As Sir Humphrey would say, the nation can't have ten foreign policies… #QandA #
  • I hope he gets remunerated as well… #QandA #
  • Boom with a gloom. #
  • @randallgill Robert Byrd (Dem-West Virginia), died last year – 57 years in both houses. #
  • The great simple lesson from modern economics… #
  • RT @leighsales: The full Lowy Institute 2011 poll on Australians' attitudes to global affairs is here: http://bit.ly/jT15nY #
  • @DanielleCronin As I said to someone earlier, there will probably be a mass defection and an outbreak of plague tomorrow… #
  • @DanielleCronin Vote for no-one until they announce their frostbite policy. #
