I look forward to Labor forming an opposition any day now. Any day.

via Janetter for Mac

The way I process the logic, it means the Coalition is actually changing the law to make it easier to act corruptly. They want it that way.

via Janetter for Mac

So you engage a financial planner, yet they may actually then work to someone else’s best interests. Well done, Coalition, well done.

Actually, in a truly just world, @drearyclocks, a story containing “Coldplay” and “shooting” would end abruptly, but satisfactorily.

via Janetter for Mac

In a just world, @drearyclocks, Coldplay shooting in Newtown would immediately cause real estate values to plummet.

That is, they have both become owners and operators of concentration camps. So the next step, folks? Better or worse? Choose.

via Janetter for Mac

What that shows is that both Labor and the Coalition have successfully created this insane vision and are too gutless to change.

via Janetter for Mac

On the reports that 59% of Australains support off-shore processing, Prince said they’re not told what’s really happening.

via Janetter for Mac

Oddly, that isn’t a deal-breaker. It’s “courage” for a backbencher to point out that MPs aren’t following the party platform.

via Janetter for Mac

The issue is being discussed on @RNBreakfast right now. Offshore processing is inconsistent with the party platform.

Sadly, you have to EXPLAIN to politicians that acting like humans can be a good look, in numbers terms. But here we are.

via Janetter for Mac

A change in asylum seeker policy, becoming human, could be the clear “we’ve changed” message Labor needs.

via Janetter for Mac

Labor needs to show it’s not just different from the Coalition but different from the toxic Labor that lost the last election.

via Janetter for Mac

So what is my message for Labor, exactly? I’d better get that clear in my head. It’s not just that I want change..or
