@bpurdon This is my second time here, I think. It seems to be Cisco’s pick. They’re paying for this trip.

Meanwhile Nikolic wastes the nation’s time by reading the same talking points that we’ve heard countless times before. ADD VALUE, FUCKHEAD.

“Hetty Johnson from Bravehearts has called this legislation a ‘no-brainer’,” a topic on which she is a leading expert in my opinion.

Who’s this arsehat? Oh. Andrew Nikolic MP. That explains the absence of joined-up thinking.

@swearyanthony You can still debate the core bill, and then the amendments will come.

Margie Abbott says Tony losing PM job “could be an ‘energising new chapter’ in their lives.” theaustralian.com.au/national-affai… Yeah, I can decode that.

Typo rate in tweets increasing. My decision to skip tonight’s dinner is probably a sensible one.

If only the government had some sort of person who managed to flow of business into parliament.

So I gather that the data retention legislation amendments failed to make it into parliament again today. bit disorganised, this mob.

Why does the data retention legislation have to be passed by the end of next week? Is that when Crusader Rabbit’s probationary period ends?

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark I’m sure that as @TimdeSousa points out this has all be worked out with all due rigour.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Folks, “journalism” is a process, an activity, not a distribution technology or category of persons. We did all this in 2011, 2010, 2009…

@jturner_ibrs @NewtonMark @deptofaustralia “Micro-blogging” was @twitter’s original conceptualisation. Didn’t predict conversationality.

joshgnosis If it is not too onerous to add a warrant scheme for journo data, it shouldn’t be too onerous for everyone else to be covered, too.

NewtonMark This Brandis bullshit has been hashed out time and time again since at least 2007. He isn’t confused about it, he’s using tactical lying.

via Tweetbot for iΟS (retweeted on 8:19 AM, Mar 17th, 2015 via TweetDeck)

Malcolm Turnbull is supposedly introducing the data retention legislation today, All these amendments and more. attorneygeneral.gov.au/Mediareleases/…

via TweetDeck

Does Brandis want a government register of journalists? MEAA membership? Liberals for compulsory union membership? This is all very funny.

via TweetDeck

Brandis’ continued emphasis on “professional” journalism (paid? MEAA member?) shows he’s still stuck on “mainstream” media categorisation.

via TweetDeck

Brandis seems to want to rehash the “Are bloggers journalists?” idiocy of 2007. People can do both, or just one, or neither.

via TweetDeck

The issue is not whether the individual is a “blogger” or not, it’s whether acts of journalism are being committed.

via TweetDeck

Here’s section 126G of the Evidence Act 1995 defining “journalist”. www5.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/c… Is Brandis proposing differently now?

via TweetDeck

Back in 2011, Brandis spoke out against the journalist shield laws moving beyond professional journalists. crikey.com.au/2011/03/04/jou…

via TweetDeck

So Brandis thinks that requiring a warrant to access data makes you “immune from criminal prosecution”? He grasp of the law is a bit thin.

via TweetDeck

I have reason to believe that Australia’s favourite Attorney-General will be on @amworldtodaypm after 0800.

via TweetDeck

MsLods On Radio National Dreyfus repeats the line that data retention is to deal with *serious* crime. No such limitation in the Bill.
