@iain_chalmers @SenatorLudlam Once we fix the bug I have with @LeukaemiaAus’s website, we’ll get the money flows happening.

@LeukaemiaAus Hey I’m having problems at your website, the “Donate Now” button has no response. Best place to file a proper bug report?

@jcmurty @Forbes I would’t want to equate NZers living in Bondi with Syrians “living” in Turkey, for starters. Tempting though it is.

via TweetDeck in reply to jcmurty

@jcmurty @Forbes Not “displaced”, no. The word “resident” is probably in there somewhere. It’s a different measure.

via TweetDeck in reply to jcmurty

@jcmurty @Forbes That’s not to detract from that other issue, of course. Far from it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jcmurty

@jcmurty You seem to be shouting at @Forbes’ chart for not being a different chart of a different thing.

@yarrabike I’ll give you a buzz to record some comments tonight? Or in the morning? The Syd/Mel slagging should go down well, I reckon.
