That said, @TurnbullMalcolm, what can you do? Party room pressures, a loophead as PM. (‘I like the army’, WTF?) Bon chance, Monsieur!

via Janetter for Mac

And I’ll say it now, @TurnbullMalcolm, our Attorney-General is an embarrassment. A boil upon the buttocks of the nation. He must go.

via Janetter for Mac

Seriously, @TurnbullMalcolm, we can argue about models of funding broadband, as we have, but this is three levels deeper.

via Janetter for Mac

In amongst the random noise of politics, @TurnbullMalcolm, the RDA amendments cut to the heart of human decency, and fail.

@vodkandlime @ben_hr Indeed, both are compelling narratives that innumerate journalists will jump at.

@ben_hr @vodkandlime That said, we should support the kid for getting into some numerical analysis, even though it was flawed.

@harlyey … but I’d certainly like to see something written with a bit more rigour, yes, The “jihadist” propaganda is… complicated.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to harlyey

@harlyey True, but I took that as no more than the “hook”, and the point is made that he’s the minority that grabs western news attention…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to harlyey

@harlyey Without detracting from your observations, which are fair, they’re comments on style rather than accuracy. Is its thesis wrong?
