OK, I’m really going away now. I’ll be back in the early morning to write some feelpinions about internet advertising and cyber shit. Gorn.

Still, winning an Academy Award for Best Costume Design makes up for all the deaths, I’m sure.

Seriously, @ABCTV, do you realise how offensive it is for a bunch of people making a movie to take credit for the hard work of a generation?

via TweetDeck

@myrcurial Thanks, James. I’m more than happy for that to happen, obviously.

via TweetDeck in reply to myrcurial

Still, we’re going to have a Commissioner for Windfarms and Imaginary Illnesses, so I guess that’s “good”.

via TweetDeck

I think that’s probably enough for now.

But yeah, let ‘em die. Refugees or faggots, whatever, who cares, right? God bless Australia.

… and I know how actual science and knowledge and understanding reality isn’t exactly valued in the Rabbit Age.

via TweetDeck

Mind you, what I’m saying is only based on sociological studies done by Macquarie Uni in the 1990s in the response to the AIDS crisis…

via TweetDeck

Yeah I should maybe stop now, before I start blaming specific deaths on this stereotyping, right @ABCTV?

via TweetDeck

… the more you push the idea that anyone who’s gay who doesn’t fit that stereotype is even more of an outsider@ABCTVtv

via TweetDeck

The problem here, @ABCTV, is that the more you reinforce the idea that the gay experience is the inner urban nightclub freak show…

via TweetDeck

I’ve turned off the TV, @ABCTV, because who the fuck needs to hear these inner urban clichés imagine they speak for the entire nation?

via TweetDeck

Yes, yes, “Priscilla Queen of the Desert” was a good film, @ABCTV, but most of us don’t live in films but have to get on with actual lives.

via TweetDeck

You know, Sydney-centric @ABCTV, the other 95% of Australia is sick to fucking death of you imagining you speak for them.

via TweetDeck

“Penetrating the dark heart of Australia with their armour of frocks?” FFS, you Sydney-centric @ABCTV fucktards, just kill yourselves.

via TweetDeck

Dear Australia, and Dear @ABCTV, the gay experience is part of the entire nation, not the 300 metre radius from Taylor Square.

via TweetDeck

Seriously, @ABCTV, fuck off. Don’t let this inner-urban Sydney minority define what it means to be gay in Australia, then or now.

@mm_bennett Indeed. This is timeless stuff. It’s happening to people every day, and has been for years, and yet it’s still invisible.

@mm_bennett If you want to do a piece on this, I can suggest a couple of names to talk to.

via TweetDeck in reply to mm_bennett

@mm_bennett @abc730 Yep, and as I said to someone before, often when the police contact potential victims they’re just not believed.

via TweetDeck in reply to mm_bennett

@lasaceo @abc730 Indeed. And often they’d think they’re running iffy iPhones or whatever, not drugs.

via TweetDeck in reply to lasaceo

@mm_bennett @abc730 Indeed. I must ping the AFP to see what the scale of this is. If it’s like EU equivalents, it could be huge.

via TweetDeck in reply to mm_bennett

@SnarkyPlatypus I remember that my African trip was on a flight that had started in Guangzhou via Bangkok to Nairobi, and NBO is a hub.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@abc730 Are any of the videos NOT geoblocked? This story isn’t just about Australian potential victims, and you’ve put it together well.

via TweetDeck

I’ll link to this @abc730 report once the video is online, because this is a textbook example of a long-con romance-scam drug mule job.

via TweetDeck

“Guangzhou, the ice capital of the world,” says @abc730.

via TweetDeck

I disagree with @abc730. This guy is not an “unlikely” drug mule. He’s perfect. Nice old bloke on a disability pension. Who’d suspect?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus And QLD gets hit with these scams disproportionately because of the retiree population.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@maddy_jones15 @abc730 The saddest part is that even when the police tell the victims they’re being scammed, they refuse to believe it.

via TweetDeck in reply to maddy_jones15

@TonyC1963 @abc730 I’ve spoken with people from various law enforcement agencies. It’s all about targeting and understanding psychology.

via TweetDeck in reply to TonyC1963

@will_ock Also, I miss having access to SCOSE.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@will_ock Indeed. Sadly the Sydney 1900 bulletin made the error described. Mind you, so did the talent, so maybe the journo just matched it.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@maddy_jones15 @abc730 Replace the word “stupid” with “vulnerable”. Romance scam and carrying a video recorder full of ice.

via TweetDeck in reply to maddy_jones15

A hint, @abcnews. Note where the stress marker is in the IPA rendering: /ˈrɛspʌɪt/. The word does not rhyme with “spite”.

via TweetDeck

Dear @abcnews, when reporting on “respite care” on the telly, please consider how the word “respite” is actually pronounciated. Kiss kiss.

via TweetDeck

Looks like @abc730 has an interesting report on an email-based long con to trick older Australian blokes into becoming drug mules.
