  • @Mahaut1329 Thanks – again! #
  • Well, a two hour telephonic exchange with @boeufblogginon – more proof that there is occasionally something quite magical about Twitter. #
  • Give @boeufblogginon 's blog a once-over for an eclectic range of well-written posts: http://t.co/f9SmiQWw #
  • @aptronym Much of it slanderous and scandalous… #
  • @boeufblogginon A bit less of the old, if you don't mind… #
  • @Drag0nista Surely they wouldn't talk about Senator Rhiannon like that, would they? #
  • MT @liamfoxpng: Courts orders Sir Michael [Somare] restored as PM [of Papua New Guinea] #
  • @MsMonneypenny Well, what I do in private stays private… #
  • @MsMonneypenny Quite a lot… what exactly are you referring to? #
  • @MsMonneypenny Sounds like that would end up as a challenge in the High Court. Their ruling is binding. #
  • @MsMonneypenny That's rubbish! Who's telling you this nonsense? Gender terms are generic – I think the GG's Letters Patent cover it too. #
  • @MsMonneypenny No, the court adjudicates on disputes over powers. Eg. tobacco companies might argue govt doesn't have power under S51… #
  • @MsMonneypenny …and then the Court decides whether the power has been used appropriately. Judicial independence, separation of powers, etc #
  • @MsMonneypenny Well, it's still nonsense. This is the kind of question that conspiracy theorists ask. Are you really serious? #
  • @MsMonneypenny That's simply nonsense. This "issue" is only raised by cranks. The anti-fluoridationists are into it as well. Nut-jobs. #
  • @MsMonneypenny If it's the tobacco trademark issue, then it's simply a case of the High Court adjudicating on the relevant section of Const. #
  • @MsMonneypenny No, you're still missing the point. The Section 51 power on Marriage is all that matters. It allocates power to the Parlt. #
  • @MsMonneypenny Are you going to make me one of your avatars? #
  • @MsMonneypenny Gillard in a mask? #
  • @MsMonneypenny Like the one on yours – perhaps mask not the right word. #
  • @KJBar Kevin Rudd on his way to PNG? #
  • Did we all wish the Defence Minister a happy 56th birthday today? #
  • @MsMonneypenny You don't really have to… #
  • @boeufblogginon Look what I pulled out of the cupboard – Melbourne Town Hall 1976 http://t.co/0WacgJGK #
  • Looking for something else and found this – pretty sure it's Anthony McClellan circa 1976/7 #LateAgenda http://t.co/9P72mgxU #
  • Excruciating… #
