  • @TommyTudehope Their standard two-week rolling average. 56 last week, 57 this week. Sample size 1899. #
  • @TommyTudehope Presumably not. #
  • @camdenlawyer Thanks – they were formative days. Hard to credit it's now 40 years yet we're both still so young… #
  • @kjob85 Thanks for that. You missed a great show! #
  • @judyvw2 I should have mentioned that verbal skill of his. You're right, it's all pretty slim pickings now. #
  • @sydneysider09 He likes to point out he's the oldest ever former prime minister. May as well go for a centenary record as well! #
  • @camdenlawyer When I began teaching in 79 I had kids who could just recall Gough. By the 2000s even their parents couldn't. Fragile history. #
  • Is email dying? http://auspol.info/nmUVGE – sounds right to me. Most of my emails are subscription services, not personal. #
  • Gough Whitlam is 95 today. Here's me with a touch of nostalgia and some contemporary comparisons: http://auspol.info/qWdR2b #
  • @AndrewCatsaras Thanks – a bit indulgent but I do think the comparison is valid. #
  • @Adrianofafrica Thanks for that. Imagine being 18 today and looking at Gillard vs Abbott… #
  • @AndrewCatsaras I have a booklet The Bulletin published in 1972, similar to what you describe. Today we'd twitterise it! #
  • @balkandishlex Well, not in a favourable way… #
  • @Senexx Surely a couple of tweets would suffice? #
  • @Senexx BTW, I'm sold on SugarSync now. Have uploaded gigs of files and no problems. Sometimes just have to wait a bit longer. #
  • @Senexx The app is good because you can allocate files/folders for syncing without having to move them. Easy to monitor too. #
  • Channel 10 Melboure news leads with fears of job losses at Latrobe Valley Hazelwood power station. Then poor polls. "Hard sell" indeed. #
  • @julesallover Yes unless they polled yesterday. Essential is 2-week rolling average. 56 last week, 57 this week. #
  • @stephendevice Thank you so much – too kind. #
  • @G_times Thanks for that. #
  • @feneleyandco I love the line about the closure of parliament and the BBC! #
  • SSoo mmyy kkeeyybbooaardd iiss ttyyppiinngg ddoouubbllee lleetttterrss.. HHooww ddiidd tthaatt hhaapppeenn?? #
  • @deniswright You were right. I had an unused USB connection for an old wireless keyboard which mysteriously came to life. #
  • What's so depressing here is the rote responses. Almost totally unable to adapt to the question. "Even the word carbon." #QandA #
  • This 'taking rubbish to the tip' analogy is all very well but the question was about something else. #QandA #
  • Just another socialist policy… #
  • idealogues… #
  • @hyperdermik I didn't say it! And I certainly didn't spell it… #

  • Has anyone published a list of the 500? Or the other 500? #
  • @lapuntadelfin Am I permitted to do a joke about self-serving petrol…? #
  • The list of 500 companies can probably be derived from information published here: http://auspol.info/nFW4ir – so I am advised… #
  • RT @murpharoo: Currently out of Canberra, out of political circles, interested how little the CO2 debate has registered. #
  • @talopine Check out the National Greenhouse and Energy Reporting link: http://auspol.info/nFW4ir – no secrecy about pollution. #
  • @JamesJohnsonCHR @AndrewCatsaras Parliamentary Library paper here: http://auspol.info/pvpyWE #
  • @talopine The ATO probably can't but I'd be surprised if we couldn't work it out from NGER. #

  • @mrtiedt It's some poor sucker who's bought one of those internet marketing courses and set up an Adsense site. They never work! #
  • @mr_billiam It's sad that some poor sucker has bought an IM course and thinks he's going to make Adsense money this way. How are you? #
  • @adrallud He's bought an internet marketing course and set up an Adsense site, hoping to cash in. Pity is, he's got some good keywords. #
  • @adrallud This site does it properly: http://auspol.info/qFsZdq #
  • @adrallud They're sold as instant, click and walk away solutions. If he was prepared to do some actual real work on it… #
  • @maxdenton Not successful at all when it's done that way. Compare: http://auspol.info/qFsZdq #
  • "Guest starring Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud" … you don't see that on TV shows anymore. #Brideshead #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin Some magnificent shots here: http://auspol.info/r41LYy #
  • RT @YahooUKEditor: Reports suggest that Gordon Brown will make a statement around 4.30 which will cause the hacking story to explode. #
  • @deniswright … one of our operators will be with you shortly … #
  • News International papers targeted Gordon Brown: http://auspol.info/r0Roai – quite extraordinary story from The Guardian #
  • The Age has the Victorian ALP's review of last year's election campaign: http://auspol.info/o1CU5W – they didn't think they could lose. #
  • The Commons is discussing blagging. #
  • "Murdoch's sky falling in" – The Age frontpage http://auspol.info/nAEE1B (PDF) #

  • @adrallud Just a teeny bit… #
  • News Corp investors attack Murdoch: http://auspol.info/omB0G8 – egregious behaviour and rampant nepotism in the family candy jar. #
