@jeffsonstein It’s lovely for you to retweet that, but will anyone commute from your patch?

@CaseyBriggs So true. Categories, time scales. Make ‘em mean whatever you like.

He already sounds like a green-biro nut job, always on about “the death cult”. But not blaming Labor for something… he’s off his muesli.

Is Tony OK? We’re several minutes into this presser and he hasn’t blamed Labor for anything yet.

@CaseyBriggs See second tweet of the two. UNHCR figures.

via TweetDeck in reply to CaseyBriggs

Tony has won the gold star for mentioning “stopped the boats” and “death cult” in the same sentence. Well done.

via TweetDeck

That’s misleading because that’s the figure for refugees thru UNHCR, which is only a small part of the total. (2/2)

via TweetDeck

Oh, and Crusader Rabbit repeats the misleading factoid that AU takes more refugees per capita than any other nation. (1/2)

via TweetDeck

And… we’re “already going a lot”, says the Rabbit. And that’s it.

via TweetDeck

We’re sending Dutton to Geneva to talk to the UNHCR. So they’ll be glad* for the help*.

Tony has gotten the “boy” part right. One point ahead of Belt Fastener.

Re earlier tweet about drugs and Henderson, a few of you have suggested “All of them.” My observation is that this leads to poor outcomes.

via TweetDeck

Sun plan, draft: Eggs, or something; produce “The 9pm Edict” podcast; break for Sunday lunch in there somewhere; Weekly Wrap.

via TweetDeck

There’s something to get into a BuzzFeed quiz. “Which of the following drugs would be needed to have sex with Gerard Henderson?”

via TweetDeck

Mind you, only one of them would be a dud root. But which one?

via TweetDeck

Key difference between Gerard Henderson and a drugged-up capybara? THE CAPYBARA ISN’T OBSESSED WITH PETTY GRIEVANCES OF HIS PAST 40 YEARS.

Might as well have Barrie O’Cassidy referee a jelly wrestling match between teams of drugged-up capybaras for all you’ll learn of reality.

Thanks to Fate, Abbott finds himself PM. Two years in, he still can’t be arsed governing the country, let alone being a statesmen.

via TweetDeck

As for Abbott, I don’t give a toss about which team he plays for. It’s about whether he chooses to have human decency or not.
