RT @chaosboi: It has been rumored that Senator Conroy has been setup to fail with the Filter, Labor want a spectacular public failure 4 him.

@simontsmall “I’m concerned about the competitive nature of the community itself.” Competition for/over…? [puzzled]

RT @jeffsonstein: Sometimes one just has to say “no” to morally bankrupt orders. [Couldn’t agree more. And that is Conroy’s bind.]

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein The policy wasn’t Conroy’s personally, but Labor Party’s. As Minister, he must implement. I’m told PM orders him to fight on.

RT @simontsmall: The bigger Twitter gets the more impersonal it becomes. [No, it’s about YOUR circle, not Twitter itself. You choose.]

@jeffsonstein As I said on “Stilgherrian Live” http://bit.ly/2P7eZJ I’m now starting to pity Senator Conroy.

@jeffsonstein As @NewtonMark noted, the entire censorship debate seems to be eating him up inside. http://bit.ly/3yLGqH

@jeffsonstein Senator Conroy has certainly copped the ridicule this week. http://is.gd/paT3

@jeffsonstein The story’s become a joke with “a site belonging to a school cafeterias consultant”, but it may have been hacked.

@SnarkyPlatypus Il ya des raisons économiques fondamentaux communistes ont de mauvaises dents. Il n’a rien à voir avec les pommes de terre.

@jonseymour Correct. Ross Wheeler’s final quote in that Time article is probably incorrect.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Fluoration est le plus monstrueusement conçu régime Communiste et dangereux que nous ayons jamais eu à faire face.

Time: “A Blacklist for Websites Backfires in Australia” http://is.gd/ps0f Portrays it as a scandal and a joke. Hat-tip @SilkCharm.

Great. Now I’m reading about damaged nuclear weapons. I tell you, the bus is the wrong way to transport the fuckers, even if it is cheaper.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein We have two kinds of cockroaches. Big American cockroaches you know. The little German cockroaches are immune to all weapons.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

THUD! FFS, people! “Hello? ‘Nuclear weapon?’ WOULD YOU MIND BEING A LITTLE BIT CAREFUL THANKS?” God, people are stupid.

via Twitter Web Client

There were also cockroaches. Man, many cockroaches.

via Twitter Web Client

In my dream there were budget cuts. We had to transport nuclear weapons on the bus. I had to keep telling people not to bump them. Idiots.

Off-grid until the morning. [exit]

@Yin_0x7f I know nothing about these “ALIEN SPACE PARTIES” of which you speak.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat No, @mpesce never did cough up the $10 re the success of . For shame.

Why is the jukeboy playing “Jingle Bells”? I’m not used to space-time disturbances.

Mobile. Enmore Rd / King St / @SnarkyPlatypus / gym / late lunch / Redemption / Illumination / Apocalypse. Well, if we have time.

@benmoretti Correct, David Penberthy was in Marxist group CISCAC, the Committee in Solidarity with Central America and the Caribbean.

RT @stephenconroy: Transcript of the Triple J / Radio National piece about fake politicians on Twitter: http://is.gd/plGe [Audio too.]

I fuckin’ knew those goddam Japanese were up to something! Giant fire-breathing robot death! http://is.gd/plGm

via Twitter Web Client

@benmoretti Don’t you think “right wing crap” and “ex-Commie” are rather outdated ways of discussing politics? Clichés and old slogans.

via Twitter Web Client

@stephenconroy Maybe they should have gone with the fictional magazine title on “Stupid Stupid Man”: “COQ Magazine”.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Depends what you mean by “value”. This is commercial media: the “value” is in the eyeballs it pulls for advertisers.

@bengrubb “The Punch” is one hell of a name to live up to, though. http://is.gd/pl73 There will be live tweets on the website part too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@maenad_au I can’t see a News Ltd band under Penberthy being like http://counterpunch.com. Far more populist, accessible. “Punchy” writing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Soliloquy13

As I said in Crikey yesterday, “The Punch” is also News Ltd’s SEKRIT online-print-TV politics etc brand to launch in May, led by Penbo.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus As discussed, Mr David Penberthy’s new column, “The Punch”. http://is.gd/pl0o

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Your theory from a couple months back does indeed fit everything that’s unfolding. You’re such a clever monotreme! [pats]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@druey Ah, the “what’s simmering under the radar” for Conroy and the Internet is something I’m working on. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to drueyjay

@druey Agreed. I quoted @NewtonMark at http://bit.ly/eaV0F Conroy HATES the censorship debate, sparked up again when on other topics.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to drueyjay

@chaosboi The factional role of Senator Conroy within the ALP would perhaps support theories about him being set up for failure, yes.
