Barnaby Joyce racked up $675K in expenses in 3 weeks as drought envoy. He says he sent texts to PM Scott Morrison who blocks FOI requests & refuses to release phone records. Retweet if you want a forensic audit & a police investigation with all documents made public. #auspol ICAC

Peter Dutton is on radio suggesting the non-disclosure clause in Rachelle Miller payout was not included by Labor deliberately. That’s untrue. My understanding is that was agreed in March with Dept Finance under previous government @PeterDutton_MP

@PeterDutton_MP suggests Labor deliberately left out NDA in my settlement. This is entirely FALSE! It was agreed under YOUR government in March. How dare you peddle lies about my case to score political points. I’d like an apology! #auspol #lowestofthelow

Do you think Daisy Pearce would be commentating AFL if she had an affair, violently beat her husband, walked out on him and their twin babies, glassed another partner, was arrested while OS and then had a bag of white powder fall out of her pocket. No? So why should Wayne Carey?

Anyone else struggling to take Victorian media seriously on their faux outrage over the timing of a report while they intentionally turn a blind eye to explosive branch stacking coordinated by extremists which is driving senior members out of the Victorian Liberal Party? #auspol

Wafula Chebukati has been vindicated. He remains the hero who prevented the subversion of the will of the People of Kenya expressed through the ballot. Well done Kenyans. Congratulations once more, President Dr William Ruto. Serve with distinction. It is the People’s will.

Take it from me: the Governor General’s role in getting $18m from Morrison for a charity without a record, office or program and no competitive bid is set to be the most controversial vice regal indulgence since Kerr’s dismissal of Whitlam. thesaturdaypaper.com.au/news…

Today, I lodged notice of a motion to disallow the Morrison govt’s mysterious $18m ‘special grant’ for a non-operational leadership program, co-signed by @WilkieMP There is insufficient evidence supporting this peculiar grant. It must be disallowed and reviewed with rigour.

Hi @3AWNeilMitchell, I noticed you went quiet, so I'll ask again: why is Channel 9 boycotting the bombshell Pentecostal Victorian Liberals branch stacking story in the middle of an election campaign — don't Victorians deserve to know the facts? Ball's in your court. #auspol

Peter Dutton has been left red faced after posting a video of a violent demonstration to slam “union thugs” — awkwardly, the video is of the attack on CFMEU offices by far-right cookers. It is unclear if Mr Dutton is aware of the embarrassing mistake. #auspol

He tried to introduce one degree of complexity about "taking sides," just one. But it was too much for CNN executives. He had to go. There can be only one continuum: left to right, with the journalist in the middle. It's not their thinking so much as their prevention of thought.
In traditional political coverage, "the spectrum is liberal to conservative. We should not take sides on liberal versus conservative," @JohnJHarwood says. But right now "the spectrum is truth on the one side and lies on the other side..."

Watching The National Press Club coming to terms with a PM who doesn't spew a word salad of slogans, but serves up intelligent, thoughtful and compassionate policy and vision. #auspol

This thread asks a multitude of valid questions that the Australian public deserves to have answered. An explanation for the ‘no pre-existing relationship’ comments - despite a documented relationship - in Senate Estimates at the very least. Thank you @RonniSalt & @jommy_tee

I’ve worked in the media for many years and do not understand why the GG feature provided by @RonniSalt and @jommy_tee has not been covered by the media. Does anyone know what’s going on? @TheRealPBarry

Crikey is outgunned. If Murdoch's wealth enables him to overwhelm Crikey’s legal defence, it would have chilling consequences for free speech. It's why I have just donated to the @crikey_news Defence Fund, and I encourage others to support them as well. gofundme.com/f/crikey-defenc…

Okay, so at the suggestion of a wise old person, we’ve upped the price of the Lachlan Murdoch stickers to $10, and we’re going to send the profits to the Crikey legal fund. Oh and we’ve made it so delivery is now available anywhere in the world. theshot.store/products/lachl…

BREAKING: The Murdoch machine is in meltdown after independent MP Zoe Daniel announced a motion for an inquiry into media truth, diversity and ownership, and defamation laws. The Albanese Government is expected to back the motion given its stated commitments to integrity. #auspol
