OK, my alarm is set for 0400, so it’s time for me to go away. Love Soapy. Arrest children.

Speaking of setting fire to the internet, there’s just 72 hours to go on my @Pozible campaign. pozible.com/corruptednerds2

@semibogan Sure. I fact I have a list of names here, if you have time…

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@semibogan Absolutely. Let me get you some kerosene.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@semibogan Look, if it’ll make you feel any better, just set fire to something and watch it burn.

@campaign_rh How dare you reduce domestic violence to the mindless spamming of people who mention it. How totally pathetic.

via TweetDeck in reply to campaign_rh

Why is the reaction to an “incident” always more laws, not an investigation into whether agencies competently used the laws they have?

via TweetDeck

@wgcullen Indeed. Though we’re not meant to notice that bit.

via TweetDeck in reply to wgcullen

@BundyB @mpesce As usual. Labor drafted law so fast it failed to meet its actual purpose. cso.com.au/article/401011…

via TweetDeck in reply to BundyB

@BundyB @mpesce The Parramatta incident. Der. It’s all news-cycle bullshit.

via TweetDeck in reply to BundyB

Of course, if Soapy actually cared about the most likely risks to ordinary Australians… but the possum doesn’t like that being mentioned,

via TweetDeck

Imagine if Soapy introduced equivalent road traffic laws in reaction to every single car crash. Or laws relating to domestic violence.

via TweetDeck

“Among other things.”

Meanwhile, Soapy has just foreshadowed a fifth tranche of national security laws, targeted at 14yo’s. pic.twitter.com/rTDErx11jM

@LJPatton And [gulp] 25 is not so young. It’s the age of junior army officers, fighter pilots, submarine crew chiefs etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to LJPatton

Exactly, @misskylie77. I see someone with whom I could have an intelligent conversation. We may not agree. The partisan crap annoys me.

via TweetDeck in reply to misskylie77

That sounds like a “real job” to me, @mackaysuzie. I couldn’t do it. Respect. But I disagree with Roy on Policy Hack. Too subtle for you?

via TweetDeck

Yes, @mackaysuzie, seriously. Earning the respect of your electorate, winning an election, convincing Turnbull you’re up for a ministry…

via TweetDeck

Roy has achieved more by age 25 than most of the partisan fucktards will in their entire lives. Play the policy ball, or GTFO.

via TweetDeck

Earlier I was critical of Wyatt Roy’s Policy Hack. zdnet.com/article/wyatt-… Anyone RTing it with a dig about Roy’s age is a fucking moron.

@mattdasilva Thanks, but I have the suspicion I stole it from somewhere. I may even be a Malcolm Tucker.

Wait. Gogglebox is an actual TV program? I’d thought it was a joke program that @charltonbrooker made up.

@troyhunt “Quite some time”, even. :)
