@SnarkyPlatypus That would be in keeping. The show is only 6 x 8 mins or so, though, so you’ll be done in an hour.

@R_Chirgwin Maybe. I can connect to it by wi-fi, but the DSL is down. Hard to say. It often takes yonks to reconnect.

Is Turnbull’s strategy to give the hard-right geese enough rope, just win the election, and have a mandate to pull the party to the centre?

via TweetDeck

That rolls off the tongue though, doesn’t it. “Treasurer Peter Dutton.”

Let me get this straight. The Treasurer was useless at explaining the economy, so we’re giving Dutton a go? Good-oh. twitter.com/lenoretaylor/s…
