@clairebbbear @dobes This makes sense, for a number of reasons.

It’s also widely believed this is why there’s so many Daddo brothers.

It’s more or less what the Australian Democrats did to the Liberal Party, and about as successful for everyone involved.

So, in summary, a media person who writes “not sure why” is both wilfully ignorant and lazy. Read their words with this in mind.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

And when someone in the media says “not sure why” it means they’ve been too fuckin’ lazy to pick up the phone and find out.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Remember that when someone writes “Not sure why X” it’s a statement about their personal ignorance of the matter, nothing more.

@NewtonMark Yeah I slept in. Thanks. I’ll be fixing it in about an hour.

Yeah I’m a bit disgusted with myself for getting drawn into all this ghoulish and spiteful speculation. This will be the last of it from me.

@purserj @SteveMolk I have no idea. Maybe it is, maybe is isn’t. The three excluded motive leave plenty of others. He says, trying to stop.

@SteveMolk @GrahamY If you accept the concept of “obvious place for suicide” (which I don’t) then that might be one. But hey let’s stop, OK?

Anyway, I too should stop speculating about the Canberra incident. I was hoping to suggest there’s many possibilities apart from politics.
