Gawd, it is way past my bedtime. Though I guess they didn’t get much sleep on D-Day either. Goodnight, Tony. Goodnight, Peta.

leslienassar Nice one, Twitter, you cyber-bullied the Prime Minister with your stupidity shaming.

@dfg77 @swearyanthony @daveyk317 The video is the pus icing on this cake of shit. Peta’s special recipe now.

@FarrellPF YouTube stats are quite some time behind real time. They have to aggregate traffic reports across their global infrastructure.

@saley69 Bah. Depends on your house style. We write “Rome” not “Roma”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to saley69

Still, it’s pretty gutsy of Abbott to make that video to distract from the Budget, right?

via Janetter for Mac

5. Enough people have downloaded both press release and video to make delete-and-cover-up a futile strategy. That is all.

via Janetter for Mac

4. But here’s a video of PM Abbott reading the same crass script to camera. youtube.com/watch?v=zwTgJC…

via Janetter for Mac

3. PM’s website goes offline, comes back, problematic press release missing and replaced with this one. pm.gov.au/media/2014-05-…

via Janetter for Mac

2. PMO issues a press release about the D-Day Commemoration, which turns into a crass sales pitch. media.crikey.com.au/wp-content/upl…

via Janetter for Mac

1. If you’re just catching up on the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) upfuckage this evening, I shall now provide a summary in a few tweets,

via Janetter for Mac

This is really quite funny. There’s no way PMO can come out of this without looking like arsehats. Do the flowchart.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @WarWraith: option 3: act as if it was completely appropriate [But they deleted the press release, which is the video script. Won’t fly.]

@ARTHURSLEA @3wombats @TurnbullMalcolm Indeed. It would have been hell. Though that’s not really my point tonight.

Can you imagine how serene and centred Peta Credlin is right now?

SnarkyPlatypus As a general principle, nothing good comes from video blogues on Youtube.

Will @TurnbullMalcolm be making a video explaining how after the D-Day landings the Allies strung copper wire for their communications?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @erinrileyau: @stilgherrian except WHY WOULD HE RECORD THE VIDEO [Well indeed. Can’t say THAT wasn’t authorised.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to erinrileyau

So tomorrow PMO has to choose which kind of incompetence they’re guilty of, a tone-deaf PM and staff, or shite document control. Pick one.

via Janetter for Mac

JohnBirmingham You know, a lot of people blame WW2 on the carbon tax, but emissions trading caused the Great War too.

via Tweetbot for iΟS (retweeted on 10:49 PM, Jun 1st, 2014 via Janetter for Mac)

No, @SnarkyPlatypus, that can’t be right. If you could censure Senators for being an idiot, that would gut the chamber.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Anyone claiming the D-Day press release was a draft is confirming PMO incompetence, that drafts can get thru web publication and go live.

via Janetter for Mac

I didn’t know until just then that “Senator Fiona Nash” was actually a thing.

via Janetter for Mac

@haruki_zaemon @pdmct Of course it wasn’t a draft. PM stood in front of a camera, read it, post-production was done, and it was published.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to haruki_zaemon

OK, the Fiona Nash thing was @DamienCWalker’s joke. I’m deleting earlier tweets. Ping @ABCnewsIntern

via Janetter for Mac

BernardKeane so @DamienCWalker made a joke about Fiona Nash and now people are treating it as real and going berserk about it. Well played, sir.

Should PMO take Mr Rabbit’s arsehat video off YouTube, I’ll have a download available in a few minutes ‘pon request.

via Janetter for Mac

Conspiracy theories!

via Janetter for Mac

I suspect I need to record my D-Day message to camera tomorrow. It seems to be a thing.

via Janetter for Mac

BernardKeane I can feel a re-announcement of the discovery of coming on.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 9:08 PM, Jun 1st, 2014 via Janetter for Mac)

@expectproblems I already know of multiple downloads of the video from YouTube, including my own. In 1080p.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@lencooley Hardly. It’s already out there. Can’t take the piss out of the pool. So now we have potential offence with added incompetence.

via YoruFukurou (retweeted on 8:54 PM, Jun 1st, 2014 via Janetter for Mac)

And… I’ve downloaded a copy of the video too. As have various other people, I see.

via Janetter for Mac

D-Day was an on-water matter, so the PM can’t really talk about it.

via Janetter for Mac

PMO may have deleted the arsehat press release, but here’s the video of Mr Rabbit reading the damn thing. youtube.com/watch?v=zwTgJC…

via Janetter for Mac

There’s a copy of the PM’s arsehat press release at @crikey_news media.crikey.com.au/wp-content/upl… and now my site stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

THE DOG ATE MY PRESS RELEASE.

via Janetter for Mac

@hornmaths Yes it will. That’s what “migrate” means” move a service to new infratructure. Relax. It’ll “just happen”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hornmaths

Does the “disappearing” of an authorised Prime Ministerial statement count as the destruction of government records? Should we call the AFP?

via Janetter for Mac

@hornmaths I will migrate the existing subscriptions to @memberful at some point, but you won’t need to do anything. I hope. And thank you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hornmaths

@hornmaths While Pozible can turn a finished project into a shop, you can’t sell abstract things like subscriptions that way.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hornmaths

@hornmaths Subscriptions made at Pozible will continue operating, but no new ones there for the time being unless I open a new project.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hornmaths

You can now buy a subcription to support “The 9pm Edict” at skank.com.au/subscribe/ and it even works thanks to @memberful and @stripe.

@hughstephens @natecochrane No, I think it’s quite deiberate. Why waste time and money on defending a bunch of press releases?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hughstephens

@natecochrane My understanding that if the ministerial websites get a sudden spike in traffic they just go offline in case it’s an attack.

“The 9pm Edict” is free, of course, but paid subscribers will soon get access to, um, special things.
