@barrysaunders Howdy, neighbour! I think it’s just our mutual busy-ness which has prevented up meeting yet. We shall fix this.

@trib But a Minister’s job is just to delivery govt policy, not what the PEOPLE want. Conroy is failing to push thru policy actions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib Conroy certainly risks being reshuffled out of BCDE portfolio. I can’t think of anything going well, tho it IS a poison chalice.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@Nickhodge Ah but the thing about your “boring middleclass hetero LNS Elitist suburban lifestyle” is that the bills get paid proper, like.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Ha! My “constant references” to gothbois are… ‘cos… I live in Enmore, which is like Goth Central.

I will re-post the piece I wrote on Monday momentarily. Stand by.

via Twitter Web Client

That Crikey piece “The lies of the internet censors: Your. Filter. Won’t. Work.” http://is.gd/c4f8 is actually from 17 Dec, people. Not new.

via Twitter Web Client

I shall refrain from continuing ANYconversations about stick-poking. At least for the next hour, anyway.

@kurokaze204 THE best description of the plan as it is (as opposed to as it’s spun) is at http://is.gd/eQBh

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

@kurokaze204 Part 2, opt-out, is the general make-safe-for-kids filtering that’s available to anyone now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

@kurokaze204 Part 1, mandatory, blocks ACMA blacklist which, asserts Conroy, is “mainly” child abuse and other illegal stuff.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

@kurokaze204 Actually, I will try. Though the “plan” changes every time Conroy opens his mouth. There’s 2 levels of “filter”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

@voirol Yes, I also thought “Citroen” http://is.gd/eQAT when I saw the Japanese 8-wheeler electric http://is.gd/eQt2

via Twitter Web Client in reply to voirol

@kurokaze204 But there’s certainly a lot of confusion over the intended purpose of Conroy’s Rabbit-Proof Firewall. Yes, another post there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DeltaKnowledge

@kurokaze204 You ask good questions about http://is.gd/c4f8 which I can’t possibly answer in 140-characters… another post coming on!

@trib Conroy got a Senate spot as favours-repaid. http://is.gd/9yeZ Is he up for Ministerial tasks? Maybe not, says Mungo. http://is.gd/8KgD

@trib BTW, Conroy’s blog post says they DO watch what’s said on Twitter etc. http://is.gd/cTvY I get emailed within an hour of my own posts.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib Conroy’s problem is that he’s a Labor Right headkicker, and the portfolio requires a tad more subtlety than that.
