Having studied a music degree, then #opera in London, I realise the #LNP would consider my training a waste of life. And in a way, it was, if my only metric was financial or employment. But wouldn't change a thing. I have travelled all over the world, sung for royalty...
I've been fortunate to experience a career in the arts, to inspire joy & passion in others with sound... just my voice, my body, my *breath*. I've recreated voices Mozart once heard in his head. Do you know how it feels to sing Strauss over a massive orchestra? I do.
I've wept in dressing rooms because two tiny folds of cartilage in my throat wouldn't do what I wanted. I've struggled with colds on opening nights, sacrificed my social life, battled my weight... studied, listened, learned my craft obsessively to be as good as I could be.

@maureenchuck1 @Thatfryboy Remember before the #wealth #ministry coup disposed of Cayman Islands toff MT & Clayton Utz high-society lady JB when the #LNP wld. accuse hapless @AustralianLabor of waging #ClassWar - every time it spoke against the abuse or exploitation of low-income people?
Now look. #auspol
@maureenchuck1 @Thatfryboy @AustralianLabor Now all u restless locked-down low-income family kids out there, a fun indoor game for you !

Figure out what will become of these rich ppl. conducting #ClassWar because their crazy-arsed pentecostalist wealth cult government (& Crosby Textor) has everything under control #auspol
@maureenchuck1 @Thatfryboy @AustralianLabor @threadreaderapp would you kindly unroll this thread for me - I rather deprecate the way @Twitter re-engineers our communications to virtually cut out the most witty or incisive responses, burying them away under "More Replies." Well frankly it sucks totally. I write to educate.

OK - coming out of Parliament House: the Government is slating an omnibus of welfare bills designed to force those on the DSP back to Centrelink, with the premise of making the NDIS the new DSP. Much tougher reviews guidelines, fewer approvals. 1/3
Greens talking about the CDC:

*423 Cashless debit card (Senator Siewert): To move—That the Senate—

notes that the Government is in discussions with the big four banks, major retailers and EFTPOS around a possible national rollout of the cashless debit card (CDC); 2/3
Suggesting that CDC may be rolled out widely. 'Robodebt' scheme to be renamed in attempt to limit damage to govt. Talk about smoking-related illnesses being limited on medicare; changes to chronic heart disease and diabetes status. #auspol #robodebt #NDIS #medicare #health #DSP

Ok, so now I'm awake and tweeting for the 3rd time today. This time it seems somewhat less apocalyptic and my path is clear (at least for the next 15 minutes or so). First though, I'd better feed the dogs, mow the grass and get a load of washing on. Doh, already distracted.
#australiavotes2019 has spoken. Approximately 51% of our country wants more of the last 6 years.

So, why don't us progressives, nay, outcasts, give it to them?
Step 1. Create a church and make it tax exempt. Membership is open to anyone that believes in a supernatural being that supports, encourages and enables the #LNP government to engage in behaviour that is corrupt and bad for the future and the environment.

@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi In theory, Indonesia is responsible.
(#IDG=Indo immigration dept)
However, Indonesia is the 3rd country, with #Manus & #Nauru, that Australia pays to use refugees as 'rocks to block the sea'.
Aus pays #IOM to run refugee community housing & 13 detention centres in #Indonesia.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi #UNHCR Indonesia received less & less funding, none this year, to process refugees in Indonesia for resettlement.
Australia took this 'humanitarian aid' & gave it to #IOM to detain refugees to force voluntary returns.
Now IOM had funding cut, new refugees sleeping in streets.
@SarahRubyWrites @jokowi So big backlog of asylum seekers awaiting UNHCR processing due to no funds.
No new admissions to #IOM or even detention in Indonesia since April 2018.
Refugees queue to get IN to detention, live in streets outside IDC's. No money, no accommodation, live on handouts.
