Grace Tame in brief #NPC

"Repairing myself in the aftermath of all this was not a simple, linear undertaking. For every step forward, there were steps back and to the side, and some almost off the edge. I saw counsellor after counsellor."

Grace Tame "But I also abused drugs, drank, moved overseas, cut myself, threw myself into study, dyed my hair, made amazing friendships, got ugly tattoos, worked for my childhood hero, found myself in violent relationships, practised yoga, even became a yoga teacher."

3/10 Grace Tame

"I starved, I binged, and I starved again. One of the toughest challenges on my road to recovery was trying to speak about something we were taught is unspeakable."

lmao that thicko Josh Frydenberg is on ABC radio trying to pass off text messages to Zucks which went nowhere and achieved nothing as something other than abject failure.
there was also some British commentator mistaking the Morrison government for something or someone that cares about spreading misinformation on fb which yeah they do - as a core campaign strategy.
Scott Morrison at #NPC: don’t get your health advice from facebook.
Morrison government ministers and journalists: chortle chortle.
Facebook: Australians, no more news including health advice from facebook for you.
Politicians and journalists: WTF WTF.

The reminder of Kristina Keneally's #NPC address from yesterday:
"…At just $100m SportRorts is small fry compared to where the main game is.

Let’s take just one example with Community Development Grants…"
"…These grants were established in 2013 with a relatively modest $340m under the Abbott Government.

But Scott Morrison – as Treasurer – recognised the political benefit of sitting on large amounts of unallocated money in the budget…"
"…Morrison has topped Community Development Grants up - budget after budget - until it now sits at a whopping $2.5 billion…"

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are no fax columnist Jennifer Hewitt, and politics editors at the ABC and murdoch press, Andrew Probyn and Samantha Maiden. The interview is with ALP deputy Richard Marles.
opening spiel: a covid turning point. Should we stay with hotel quarantine given more virulent strains? National leadership is wanting (“bipartisanship is breaking down”). #Insiders
the extremely convenient and very false narrative about Morrison “struggling to rein in” his hard right colleague Craig Kelly is repeated by Speers.

*Reminder that spreading disinformation on fb is core Liberal Party strategy, not some side show. #Insiders

the government put $200 billion in Australians pockets so that money needs to be spent to create jobs because the money belongs in Australians pockets.
This man purports to have some kind of economics degree.
short courses. Roads. “Investing and partnering and technology”.
This is what passes for Liberal and National Party vision.
Morrison just claimed credit for lower emissions during a global pandemic and closed borders to his government.

Scotty from Marketing is addressing the Press Club today. I wonder what kind of bluster and bullshit he has in store for us? #npc #auspol
First things first, the PM has apparently put a brown rinse through his fringe on his month off work

#China wants its National People's Congress #NPC members to help #Pakistan provide "effective oversight" of #CPEC projects by creating a joint parliamentary committee. This will be in addition to the oversight by the @CPECAuthority. /1…

Speers opening spiel is on “an offensive tweet” and how the Morrison histrionics that followed [paraphrased] #Insiders
seems Speers is of the view that Morrison should have delegated responding to a troll tweet to someone more junior (ya think?) not that he is saying so directly. #Insiders

acknowledgement of country and elders is an expression of First Nations sovereignty - Aunty Pat Turner, #NPC
shared values and culture, experiences and histories - values are love of country, experiences are violent colonialism. #NPC
Aunty Pat pays tribute to previous Boyer lecturers Rachel Perkins (Voice Treaty Truth, 2019) and WEH Stanner (1968 great Australian silence), Quotes poet Oodgeroo Noonucl and Uncle Charles Perkins “we can not live in the past, the past lives in us”.

'We have not been heard': Aunty Pat Turner on Morrison government response to the 2017 Referendum Council Report.…
this is awful phrasing. The Uluru Statement from the Heart is addressed to the Australian people. The Morrison government can take it to the people by referendum or not. They have chosen not. Image
Aunty Pat Turner AM at #NPC today, h/t @sister_ratched

So pleased to at the #NPC listening to Minister Angus Taylor.

And great to share a table with good friends at APPEA.
Minister Taylor talking up Australian emissions which, to reiterate, are not coming down because we have no climate policy. Meanwhile Australia is the world's third largest fossil fuel exporter.

What AEMO thinks about lowest cost ways to develop the grid: much more wind and solar (blue) and much less gas (orange). This is from a detailed, open modelling exercise. Unlike the 'Tech Roadmap', where assumptions are secret and or just made up thought bubbles. #npc #auspol
Energy Department was forced to admit no "specific quantum of abatement due to a lack of data and projections. ... simply departmental expert judgment of the relative opportunity of technologies" #NPC…
A serious focus on technology backed with policy would be useful.

This roadmap is not a policy and not serious. #npc

good morning🌞happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are murdoch columnist and ex-Liberal Party staffer Niki Savva, Guardian politics editor Katharine Murphy and ABC everywoman Annabel Crabb.

opening spiel: “tempers rising” (that’s federal Liberal MPs and “business” tempers) over border closures. Recall we have also been repeatedly told state border closures are “popular”. Aged care. National cabinet fraying. #Insiders
montage: Chinese Belt and Road initiative (BRI) gets top billing. Liberal Party politicians and journalists talking about “these laws” and “this legislation” altho it seems extremely unlikely a bill has been drafted to authorise the Commonwealth to veto state deals #Insiders

Anthony Albanese uses #NPC address to outline eight point plan he wants to the feral government implement to see aged care improved. Includes more home care packages and minimum staffing levels. Calls on Aged Care Minister Richard Colbeck to lose the portfolio. #auspol
Big whoops. That’s the FEDERAL government. Sorry
Asked if he had expressed his view on Belt and Road deals to the Victorian Premier, Mr Albanese dodges, say he has stated them publicly. “I have expressed it publicly that government I lead would not participate in the scheme.” #npc #springst #auspol

good morning🌞happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Guardian editor Lenore Taylor, ninefax economics writer Shane Wright and Phil Coorey who files political gossip and Liberal Party leaks at the AFR. This thread is not fact-checked.
what is the government’s plan? David Speers is here to #ScottySplain the [absence of a national] Morrison government plan. Recall the Liberals spent an entire election campaign last year claiming to have a plan #Insiders
the montage heavily features what the Treasurer said in his three seperate set pieces this week, the income support cuts announcement, the REFU (revised economic and fiscal update) and subsequent #NPC explainer #Insiders

good morning🌞happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Guardian Aus chief editor Lenore Taylor, murdoch man James Campbell and professor* Mark Kenny. The interview is with shadow health minister Chris Bowen. This thread is not fact-checked. I block snitch-taggers.
opening spiel from Speers is as usual verbatim Liberal Party comms messages. The phoney cybernonsense has graduated to a “cyberwar” ffs. The “sophisticated state actor” Morrison quote gets a run. As do the internal workings of federal opposition branches #Insiders
the whole montage is on the internal workings of federal opposition branches. Poor old Jane Norman’s commentary is showcased. As always, the endless factional hatreds in the federal Liberal and joint party rooms are completely ignored #Insiders

The majority (69%) of the Morrison Ministry has a degree from the humanities, social sciences, law, and/or business. That is 16 out of 23 Ministry members. If they want to call themselves 'irrelevant' and 'not ready for their jobs' I won't argue #auspol
In the past few months I have had the responsibility (and privilege) of educating 120+ human beings. They are future professionals, teachers, policymakers, diplomats, human rights lawyers, journalists, researchers, leaders. But to the government, my work is 'irrelevant' #auspol
...Their degrees, education, and future careers are 'irrelevant' . The Morrison et al rhetoric has been dehumanizing. Young people are not complex human beings. They are just jobs in training. Not people with bright futures and aspirations, just upcoming jobs figures #auspol

Jos Hankamäen kirja on väärässä, esim. tämän katkelman osalta, niin kuinka sitten voidaan selittää seuraava Oulun #BlackLivesMatterFinland:in otos? Se koostuu 98,1% naisista, mukana pari valkoista vässykkämiestä ja taitaa siellä eräs "päivettyneempikin" olla?
Tuo on yhteinen piirre kaikissa #BlackLivesMatterFinland:in huomiohu..miekkareissa. Naiset on se joukkosieluinen ja huomionjanoinen sukupuoli, joten siksi ne targetoidaan massakontrollissa. Ne myös vie mukanaan feminiiniset, heikot miehet. #massakontrolli - Hankamäki on oikeassa.
Noiden naisten ainoat argumentit asian kritisoimisen johdosta, löytyvät tästä yhdestä kuvasta. #npc-sukupuoli.

good morning🌞happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Karen Middleton, Virginia Trioli and Gareth Parker. The interview is with AG/IR Minister Christian Porter. This thread is not fact-checked.
as is his habit, Speers opens by repeating, verbatim, a Morrison government announcement. He pretends that an NPC speech is actual policy work, and has accepted (and repeats) the lie that these IR suggestions are new or started last week. #Insiders
the montage busily promotes the idea that the five roundtables are not Workchoices 2.0 (they are) and pretends a Morrison announcement is something akin to actual Labor policy outcomes instead (it isn’t). #Insiders

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang told reporters Thursday that “China has a positive and open attitude toward joining the #CPTPP .”

The premier’s comment appears to be the first time that a Chinese leader has publicly confirmed China’s interest in joining in.…
Professor @mahbubani_k , founding dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore, told @caixin that he is “very encouraged” by Li’s “strong and powerful” signal about joining the #CPTPP, which would “make the region much more stable”.
“The US has decided to launch a geopolitical contest against China, unwisely. So the best way in which China can respond is not to close up its economy, but to open up its economy. Then China should strengthen its links with its neighbors and with the rest of the world,” he said.

1/ Despite foreign doubts and #Hongkongers’ criticism, #NPC just passed #nationalsecuritylegislation. # China unilaterally imposes the law with its legislation entirely under a black box, with no legislative scrutiny and public consultation.
2/ Today’s decision is a direct assault on the will of #HKers. China is scrapping its promise of autonomy under the Joint Declaration, a legally binding international treaty, & burying 1Country2System when a #secretpolice agency can enforce #China’s laws within territory of HK.
3/ Up to now, #Beijing loyalists keep downplaying the adverse impacts on HK’s judicial independence & civil liberties. Under similar law in China, people seeking justice for #TiananmenMassacre, supporting HKProtest were sentenced to jail. It might kill HK’s democratic movements.

1. The British media and some politicians are interested in the draft decision on Hong Kong #nationalsecuritylegislation by the ongoing third session of China’s legislature- the National People’s Congress (NPC). Here is my thread on HK #nationalsecuritylegislation. @lisanandy
2. What is the draft decision: the draft decision on establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanism for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (#HKSAR) to safeguard #nationalsecurity.
3. What has happened? The fourth plenary session of the 19th #CPC Central Committee clearly required establishing and improving a legal framework and enforcement mechanisms for safeguarding #nationalsecurity in #HKSAR.…

I have now listened to a half dozen wraps by ABC journalists of the #NPC speech Morrison gave today as I am genuinely struggling to follow what they are talking about.
it seems like barely five days since the Treasurer announced the biggest cut in Australian history to any government spending program ever.
how can they report a $60 billion cut to a jobs program on Friday and report a jobs plan on Tuesday? Do they seriously think that the party of business destroying jobs, so as to take credit for creating jobs, is anything but expensive, wasteful, harmful gaslighting politics?
