R_Chirgwin Try this political parties. Put forward someone who’s smart enough to go on TV without talking points, and more engaging than a milk carton.

via YoruFukurou (retweeted on 7:29 PM, Mar 1st, 2015 via TweetDeck)

The Labor chap managed to include both an economic “sugar hit” and a “fiscal cliff” in the one sentence. What a master of stupid cliché!

via TweetDeck

Ah. Both the NSW Treasurer and his opposite number are nothing but clockwork robots re-bleating their talking points. Why bother.

via TweetDeck

These two NSW politicians on ABC TV right now must’ve both been to the same make-hand-gestures course. They both look daft.

via TweetDeck

So NSW Labor has put a lizard in charge. Why all these lizards?

Well, I should say @JacquiLambie’s response to someone claiming to be ISIS. From what’s been reported, I’m not convinced.

Hah! @JacquiLambie’s response to ISIS: “You can get stuffed.” Fair enough.

@Steve_Lockstep @NewYorker @cooneymj I still want to see how the basic debt bomb works before moving on to the swallowing debt bomb.

@GordyPls Ah, yes. Well, maybe send her a selection of photos of scary-looking insects. Even mites and fleas look scary close up.

via TweetDeck in reply to GordyPls

@GordyPls It’s only good advice if Science works for her.

@GordyPls Explain to her that she’ll end up breeding a race of super-resistant insects that’ll eat her in her sleep.

@garystark @SnarkyPlatypus @oberonsghost @19bk69 I am indeed rather shocked by this news. Perhaps I need to investigate after all.

@elronxenu @MsLods Endpoints are a key part of the internet, and vendors’ attitudes to “consumer” endpoints are appalling.

@NewtonMark Back when part of my job was maintaining the office copies of NOTAMs, I could read those charts properly.

@oberonsghost @19bk69 Oh ta. I’m guessing it runs once every three months, phases of the Moon permitting.

@NewtonMark See, “Brazil” was a documentary…

via Plume for Android in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark You could still go for it for South Maroota. It’d take them ages to scramble the F/A-18 cover.

via Plume for Android in reply to NewtonMark

@PlaneTalking Oh really? South of Adelaide, where I lived, those years were heat wave and drought, IIRC.

via Plume for Android in reply to PlaneTalking

@NewtonMark It doesn’t look like a place to visit without a car or a helicopter or a sense of daring when choosing a landing spot.

All that said, let’s move ALL the museums to South Maroota, the demographic centre of NSW. And you stop whining about deals made months ago.

via TweetDeck

Still, you go on making your planning decisions based on data out of data by two decades, because it’s your fuckin’ right, right?

A spot NW of Parramatta was demographic centre 15 or 20 years ago, from memory, but there’s been CBD, “inner” and inner west growth since.

In other words, in the period in question, many (most?) surveillance warrants were issued without the paperwork being read in full.

via TweetDeck

“With thousands of surveillance warrants sought statewide each year, there simply wasn’t time or the resources for the judges to cope.”

via TweetDeck

Particularly worrying are the comments to the effect that NSW’s system for obtaining surveillance warrants is completely broken.

This story on the NSW Police surveillance scandal by @DanBox10 is disturbing reading. theaustralian.com.au/news/features/…
