@SnarkyPlatypus The 1970s and 1980s were tumultuous times in South Australian politics.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bannon was classic SA Labor. Went to St Peters, edited On Dit, worked for Gough, set up F1 race. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Bann…

It was a time when a man could buy an office tower for $90M and, 3 months later, sell it for $270M to a company with his wife as director.

What shits me is there’s lots of upsides to this project, but the minister’s office can’t explain it and instead spins @AICriminology work.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

And all this stuff too. We shouldn’t be too tinfoil about this. (But watch the paranoids kick off.) twitter.com/kels_316/statu…

As @maelorin rightly notes, these databases will have plenty of duplication, which this project will help fix. twitter.com/maelorin/statu…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

That figure presumably includes visitors to Australia, and there’s a lot of them. Also good citizens applying for security clearance etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Here’s a number. “12 million images already held nationally in police databases”. Australia’s population is 24 million.

God I have no life.

Time required to do that basic research following the arrival of the minister’s press release: 12 minutes, including the tweets.

Is “misrepresents” unfair? Justice Minister does mention the report’s title. But it says “Australians’ willingness”. pic.twitter.com/UYeIaxTjrU

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Justice Minister misrepresents this @AICriminology research, saying “in one survey” without mentioning it’s a survey of victims only.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“Use and acceptance of biometric technologies among victims of identity crime and misuse in AU” by @AICriminology aic.gov.au/publications/c…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

So that’s $52 million to NEC Australia, who must be pretty chuffed about that.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Key sentence: “CrimTrac has awarded NEC Aust Pty Ltd the contract to deliver the nation’s next generation biometrics crime-fighting tool.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Oh look, the Justice Minister has dropped a press release about the biometrics system at 1750 on a Friday evening.
