BULLDOZE THE LEGISLATION THEN THE LAND

Staring #SmugScotty look how legislation gets bulldozed through
Tony Burke tries valiently to use standing orders & motions to allow people to speak

HYPOCRITE CORMANN
With Cormanns new found green conscience, how does @MathiasCormann reconcile voting to prevent our representatives’ talk on the environment bill, along supporting the substantial weakening of Environment Laws?

In the Video you may recall @Tony_Burke mentioning the independent review that the LNP setup up to review the current laws & make recommendations. The new laws were being created before the interim report was made and the the final report isn't yet released. Image

1/ Steve Bannon went to Rupert Murdoch's Sky News Australia to plant #disinformation about Hunter Biden.

NY Times last year: "Murdoch and his children have toppled governments on two continents and destabilized the most important democracy on Earth."

2/ Murdoch is executive chairman of @newscorp, parent company of Sky News Australia, as well as several prominent U.S. media brands, including the New York Post.
3/ Murdoch-owned @nypost is ground zero of the Trump team's #disinformation smear campaign against Hunter Biden.

@washingtonpost reported: "The New York Post said it obtained the material from former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a personal lawyer to President Trump."

1/ PART 2/2: HOW MANY TIMES HAVE LNP STOPPED DEMOCRACY
A. 74 (not 79 as I previously posted). I've compiled a montage dedicated to LNP’s morally bankrupt version of democracy. I estimated each use of SO-80 uses 7 mins (motion moved, vote, division, & settled down)

This means 8+ hrs of time that should be spent debating legislation has been wasted. Approx ~1,000 hours of MP’s time has been wasted.
Another way the LNP wastes $$$ & avoids accountability. Why have parliament if the LNP make a mockery of democratic processes

Both my Part 1 & Part 2 threads have shown the LNP abusing Standing Order 80 & gagging debate with no concerns they are stopping ~half of Australia’s population being represented in Parliament.

1/ PART 1/2: WHAT THE LNP WONT ALLOW TO BE DEBATED
The LNP have voted more times to stop debate than they have voted on actual legislation.
The sardonic irony of Tony Burke being gagged whilst talking about the gagging of debate is a perfect display of LNPs disdain for democracy
2/
This corruption of democratic process should be front pg news & lead news items. Standing Order 80 (as we know it) was created in 1906 when members had no time limits on speeches. When it was created there was great concern about its potential misuse.

A story in the Newspaper in 1905 explained the potential abuse. Prime Minister Deakin said reassuringly “that it would rarely be used & not for partisan purposes” Deakin was unable to imagine 115 years later we would have the most corrupt govt in our history.

1/$10 BILLION DOLLAR BLUDGER
My 6 tweet vent
We’ve all known it for years, News Corp is a cancer on society & a protection racket paid 4 the LNP. This week a minister was described as behaving criminally & a mysterious $30m land purchase+many more.

2/$10 BILLION DOLLAR BLUDGER
News Corp has a $10b dollar value on the ASX. The ASX wouldn't exist w/out us paying taxes & investing 2 make Australia an efficient place 2 conduct business. News Corp are on the corporate dole taking money with no mutual obligations

3/ $10 BILLION DOLLAR BLUDGER
On top of cash gifts, News Corp has many indirect subsidies. The 1936 Tax Law gives all sporting clubs (AFL+ NRL) tax exemption,⬇️costs by 10's of millions. These subsidies give its 32K shareholders⬆️dividends than they should get

Has anybody else had enough of the Morrison government? Is anybody else as angry as I am? Who wants to protest??? Please have a look at this thread... there is a way we can do this! #LiarFromTheShire #auspol #CrimeMinister #ScottyMustResign #BoycottMurdoch
All it takes is active and sustained participation of just 3.5% of the population. It is time for the Morrison Government to be held accountable. We have a responsibility to expose the lies and corruption. In the Uk they have started a 3.5% campaign. This is what is happening:
3.5% is showing up in chalk all over the UK - on walls and footpaths, rubbish bins, anything. We can add signs to gardens, windows, balconies. This is a way to get out in the streets without the push back. To bring attention to what’s happening. #auspol
