@frogworth @ben_hr @fbiradio @FourPlaySQ That would make sense. There were so many dramas around that licensing round.

via TweetDeck in reply to frogworth

@frogworth @ben_hr @fbiradio I was station manager at Three D Radio, Adelaide 1994-95, and on the board of SACBA around that time.

via TweetDeck in reply to frogworth

@ben_hr @frogworth @fbiradio “Everybody” in that licensing round was an aspirant for a long time. Successive governments took forever.

@dmorg78 @BernardKeane @iiNet Oh God, I gave up caring as soon as I sent my first tweet.

via TweetDeck in reply to dmorg78

@dmorg78 @BernardKeane According to a lookup, this apartment is on @iiNet through Drummoyne.

via TweetDeck in reply to dmorg78

@BernardKeane Well, that is true. Perhaps it’s some sort of collective hallucination.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

Well, @BernardKeane, there’s a significant “Doesn’t work” response there. I can’t be arsed figuring it out.

@jonseymour It’s both. The routine operations were previously carried out by another organisation. First time they were done by ABF.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonseymour

@CompleatCunt A “presser” is a press conference, linked to, happened Friday. The press release is a document, of course, issued earlier.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CompleatCunt

@rhysam (That said, the first field operations by a brand-new paramilitary organisation do deserve ministerial attention.)

via TweetDeck in reply to rhysam

@rhysam Wait. So we’re making an argument for more centralised micro-management now? Don’t we want Abbott to relax the sphincters a bit?

via TweetDeck in reply to rhysam

@perrynfowler Then you have a reason to listen to the podcast tonight. :) But note that I said ‘not terrible’ and ‘performance’.

ABF Commissioner Roman Quaedvlieg’s presser from Friday isn’t a terrible performance, actually. abc.net.au/news/2015-08-2…

@moylecroft @NewtonMark Given that his two medals are automatic issues for long services, that’s be a step up.

via TweetDeck in reply to moylecroft

@swearyanthony @phbarratt @NewtonMark Oh, that’d be one of the AFP deployments then, East Timor or Solomon Islands or something.

via TweetDeck in reply to swearyanthony

@NewtonMark They’re medals related to his police service. For full dress, it’s all medals awarded, not just those in the current job.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@phbarratt @NewtonMark Australian Police Medal and National Medal on his left. Dunno the other. This was a formal photo on launch day tho.

via TweetDeck in reply to phbarratt

@MuppetString Which is pretty standard stuff for someone who’s been operating at the levels he has been.

@mjos_crypto That’s one impressive hat. The epaulettes are rather special also.

via TweetDeck in reply to mjos_crypto

@Retrovertigo @gths Yeah, it does have a distinctly aviation fee about it.

via TweetDeck in reply to Retrovertigo

@cefiar They’d be the Australian Police Medal and the National Medal on his left. Don’t know the other one. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Qua…

via TweetDeck in reply to cefiar

@MuppetString Um, since the ABF has only just been formed, Quaedvlieg’s medals would be from previous service elsewhere.
