Thinking about former Governor General, Quentin Bryce ...a thoroughly decent GG... I say ...no more army men or clerics.

Then a further $50m on Scott’s Peak Dam. There is no cost benefit study of strengthening versus decommissioning. Time to get real here and stop throwing good money after bad. Time Hydro’s assumptions were seriously challenged. #politas

The Edgar dam which constrains the impoundment which flooded Lake Pedder is built on a fault line. Hydro knew but built it anyway. Seismic risk is now taken more seriously so instead of decommissioning dams, Hydro Tas wants to spend $21m strengthening Edgar. #politas

Victoria has the most carbon dense forests in the world and they are being logged right now by the government’s loggers, VicForests. Today community members stopped logging at Mount Disappointment. We’ve had enough, @DanielAndrewsMP your threats of fines and jail won’t stop us

#fourcorners The more I see of @Mon4Kooyong the more I like her. So smart yet refreshingly down to earth and willing to admit she 'could have done things better'. How I wish other politicians would be so reflective and honest.

this crazed belief you have to look a certain way to be in the public sphere. following my court case win against Sussan Ley in 2021, got told I was "too skinny and bony for the media." I was 17 and talking about climate change

An increasing number of political observers are backing “megalomania” as the root cause of the extraordinary one-man cabinet.

The State Government should now confirm that this pause is permanent. There's 50,000 people on the waitlist for social housing in Qld alone and that number will grow every year. Selling off public housing robs people of homes and security.

This is Katherine, one of the public housing tenants who joined our campaign to oppose the sell off. This is a significant win for people like Katherine who for now don't have to worry about losing her home.

The amount of times he dodged pandemic questions, asking journos to refer their questions to the minister while he was also the health minister?!

Jokes aside, this is exactly why people like Morrison pick people like General Hurley as their Gov Gen: they have the outside appearance of ‘law and order’ but have actually got to that position by doing whatever their political bosses want, and never once saying ‘No, minister’

#Morrison says since “leaving the job”, he hasn’t engaged in any “day to day politics”. Isn’t representing the people of #Cook his full-time job? He is cooked. It’s time for him to be gone. #auspol

We need to hear from every journalist and politician who knew about Scott's creative constitutionalism and have them explain why they didn't say anything. Come into the light, Insiders.
