@SnarkyPlatypus How on earth could a blue furry halo possibly be “undignified”?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I cannot account for your unaccountably inexplicable lack of imagination. It’s inexplicable.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@vealmince I think it’s best to not pursue some of those apparent resemblances. That way madness lies.

via TweetDeck in reply to vealmince

Further to the tweet about Tony Abbott saying “consummate”, please visualise Julia Gillard and Bob Brown. Consummate. That is all.

via TweetDeck

RT @deptofinternets: ATTENTION TONY ABBOTT! Every time you say ‘Consummate’, Australia cringes. Licking your lips afterwards DOES NOT HELP.

via TweetDeck

Is this ABC News 24 Canberra reporter Belinda Neal’s daughter? There is a resemblance…

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce: Here’s a list of psychedelic acacias (wattle) - http://is.gd/eOrR5 - it’s not short, is it?

via TweetDeck

Given the remaining independents say “stable government” is their wish, is Mr Rabbit’s little speech here helping? I think not.

via TweetDeck

RT @safzoro: But did Mr Rabbit swagger in and sit gingerly, and is Bob Katter grinning? [I missed the opening shot, alas.]

via TweetDeck

RT @BernardKeane: So if there’s a Labor-Green coalition does that mean we should add their primary votes together?

via TweetDeck

Is it just me, or is Mr Rabbit sounding incredibly defensive in this presser? He’s not sounding like a winner to me.

via TweetDeck

Mr Rabbit alleges that Labor / The Greens has already done a deal before the election, ‘cos they didn’t talk to him enough.

via TweetDeck

I have come to the conclusion that Rabbits do not cast a reflection in mirrors.

via TweetDeck

Oh here we go. Mr Rabbit complaining that a policy he didn’t like was dropped, lectures Labor on the quest for Power.

via TweetDeck

Lord Nicholas Stern is at the National Press Club today, starting 1230 AEST.

via TweetDeck

Is there some way to make Bob Brown sound just that little bit more interesting? Do nipple clamps improve vocal dynamic range?

via TweetDeck

I suppose I should do something for today, the centenary of Wattle Day. http://bit.ly/bXrkzB HT @derekbarry

@oberonsghost Bah! A mere 78MB for a lusciously-designed 338-page coffee table book. Same as an episode of Media Watch, longer enjoyment.

Software patch led to Westpac problems yesterday. Yet another reason to ignore those bothersome patches. http://bit.ly/c6H5H1

@jason_a_w Less Road Runner, more Ren & Stimpy I reckon, for the passive-agressiveness and repressed sexuality.

Thank you @jason_a_w for calling the left-right culture wars a “cartoon world” http://bit.ly/bKxJr9

@Mikenicholls88 No, if you’re going to the Blues Point Hotel you should still feel guilty. Very guilty.

@domknight Maybe we could combine heavy drinking with going to Canberra. We wouldn’t be the first!

via TweetDeck in reply to domknight

I suppose I should plan to go to @media140 in Canberra. Otherwise I won’t be in the “in crowd”.

NSW Parliament Code of Conduct. http://bit.ly/bMPOyR HT @nickgilbert

via TweetDeck

@RWKrajewski Oh I get the “affordable”/”unaffordable” battle. But lobby groups don’t choose words at random.

via TweetDeck in reply to AusRichie

@nickgilbert Well, it’s pretty clear. McLeay breached the rules as they stand. Goodbye, Sir.

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

RT @NewtonMark: Can you get sacked from household duties if you visit a work website from home? Or does work-life balance only work one way?

via TweetDeck

Curious that “Alliance for Affordable Broadband” chooses the word “affordable”, which was Mr Rabbit’s key sound bite. What’s the connection?

via TweetDeck

RT @Colvinius: Would anyone really care what websites or massage parlours NSW Ministers used if the place actually worked properly?

via TweetDeck

And do you need the kitchen knife? PRIORITIES, Sir, priorities!

via TweetDeck

I’m actually feeling sorry for McLeay. Apparently you become a Minister and cease to have human foibles. Which you don’t. So you’re fucked.

via TweetDeck

RT @TonyBarry: NSW Labor ministers should be spending more time on seek.com.au and less time on Centrebet and porn sites.

via TweetDeck

There’s still the issue of whether that “NSW public sector” policy applies to Parliament, but I wouldn’t want to argue that it doesn’t.

via TweetDeck

Ta @nickgilbert this Dept Premier & Cabinet policy is pretty clear. Porn is a no-no. http://bit.ly/bZ4odo

via TweetDeck

If NSW Parliament has an IT acceptable use policy, I would love to receive a copy of it.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce You could have ended your last tweet after the first four words.

Apprently even knowledge is illegal now. Charge: “possess instructions for the manufacture of a prohibited drug” http://bit.ly/bZ4odo

via TweetDeck

It’s quite really quite amazing how quickly people can be absorbed into The Borg.

via TweetDeck

@nickgilbert I suspect we may be in furious agreement about various things. A longer piece would help. That and me sleeping.

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

@nickgilbert Yes, I was about to say, I’m not up to following your fine attempt to compress this onto Twitter. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

Triple M radio hosts’ analysis of Paul McLeay’s resignation: “He looks like a bloke who would look at porn at work.” Choice.

via TweetDeck

@nickgilbert I may be too tired to understand fully, I’m very blurry, but the “problem” is the language rather than the opinion?

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

@nickgilbert “The Web (& social media) treats u as a ‘brand’”? No, only PEOPLE can treat people as anything. The Web has no intent.

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

@nickgilbert I think the world is best served by people all being able to speak openly, then audience can judge their work for themselves.

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

@nickgilbert Oh the work / not work distinction is not what I’m picking up on, but that journalists must somehow not have opinions.

via TweetDeck in reply to nickgilbert__

Personally, I think @derekbarry gets it right re Media Watch’s Twitter story http://bit.ly/cHlvBt

via TweetDeck

I should probably also mention that I know sweet fuck all about sport, due to the same level of interest therein.

Dear Cricket, punishments are MEANT to be detrimental. That’s why they’re punishments. http://bit.ly/b550vP

I forgive you then.

That’s much better, I agree.

@shoes_off I don’t think credit cards give beggars “the gift of privacy” if what they buy is then tracked and reported upon. @nickpmclaren

via TweetDeck

Always baffled by people who go to all the effort of phoning but then don’t leave a message.

via TweetDeck

Dear Universe, there is no need to speculate about what the Labor / Greens agreement is. Read it FFS! http://bit.ly/9Vjhh2

via TweetDeck

So @JuliaGillard, section 2, “The Parties agree to work together”, is an alliance, right? So a Coalition, right? http://bit.ly/9Vjhh2

via TweetDeck

NB @JuliaGillard “Coalition noun 1. a combination or alliance, especially, a temporary one between persons, political parties, states, etc”

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad I’m not sure that a review of Bob Brown Nipple Clamps fit within the remit of “Patch Monday”. Still…

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@reselsnark Can’t… Won’t… It really makes no practical difference. I ask, they don’t send.

via TweetDeck in reply to reselsnark

It’s for the children, you know, and historically important. I’m surprised you don’t have something yourself.

via TweetDeck

I’d tell you about Mr Rabbit’s Bunny Bulletins too, ‘cept Liberal Campaign HQ still can’t email me.

A long and rambling conversation has been recorded for “A Series of Tubes”. Good luck with that, @R_Chirgwin!

I’m fairly sure this explains everything. http://bit.ly/cJlTir

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je voudrais faire remarquer une sérieuse faille dans votre stratégie, M Platypus. Vous savez ce que je veux dire.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I have been reminded that I should remind you about the new MacBook Wheel. http://onion.com/97FOJC

via TweetDeck

Thu plan: 0900 record for “A Series of Tubes”; desk stuffs; 1300 meeting Darling Harbour; afternoon and evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

I think you should stop your cheap and obvious jokes now.

via TweetDeck

@RWKrajewski Treasury says CBA can be adjusted, but count as a saving. Their figure is departmental “best professional judgment”.

via TweetDeck in reply to AusRichie

Thank you @alexkidman, I’ve added those words too now. Also, perhaps should just add you to the kill file too, to avoid future problems.

via TweetDeck

@RWKrajewski Coalition had reduced it and called it a saving of $2.5B. Treasury restored it for consistency with Labor costings.

via TweetDeck in reply to AusRichie

@RWKrajewski Yes the “conservative bias allowance” is an allowance for how budgets tend to be increased over time…

via TweetDeck in reply to AusRichie

The Treasury docs are linked on The Australian’s article http://bit.ly/dxo8qf but not the ABC’s http://bit.ly/dnrJvO Communists.

via TweetDeck

As an added precaution, I have added these words to TweetDeck’s global filter: apple, ipod, itouch, itunes.

via TweetDeck

Laughing even harder now.

via TweetDeck

I am chuckling as I read these Treasury documents. Is that wrong?

via TweetDeck

I do hope someone asks Mr Rabbit to explain the “conservative bias allowance adjustment” in his figures. It’s fun.

via TweetDeck

Thank you. That was precisely the imagery I was looking for. I grew up on a dairy farm. I am familiar with the concept.

via TweetDeck

‘At 34” long, this unique raspberry glove is a winner among insemination technicians.’ Precisely. http://bit.ly/c1yTIB

via TweetDeck

@bastardsheep True, “difference of opinion” is presumably about validity of assumptions etc. Will we see them argued, I wonder?

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

Actually I need a stronger word than “muppet”. Something that says they’re in there right up to the shoulder rather than just the elbow.

via TweetDeck

The media is going to be unbearable today. A company releases a product. The way that gets in your line-up is called “advertising”. Muppets.

via TweetDeck

Trying to understand how “adding up numbers” can be down to a “difference of opinion”. Any suggestions, Mr Rabbit?

via TweetDeck

Yes, I have the same problem this end. Somehow it seems appropriate though.

via TweetDeck

Maybe “A brief history of Australian jewellery” is a place to start? http://bit.ly/bLWbWg

This Daily Telegraph story needs re-subbing. Joe Tripodi and John Della Bosca had an affair? Squishy squishy! http://bit.ly/9fHrzk

RT @karsoe Sight of the day: a Royal Cambodian Armed Forces SUV with bright pink Hello Kitty sunshades on the rear window.

via TweetDeck

Just because they’re from my generation it doesn’t mean I approve of them.

@EnsignR Bram Williams? You have got to be fucking well joking. Get me a bucket.
