good morning from unceded Darug lands☀️today on #Insiders are ABC 730 chief political corro and all round CPG legend Laura Tingle, 9fax chief political corro David Crowe, and murdoch politics editor James Campbell.
The interview is with Morrison government minister Stuart Robert.
Robert is currently minister for “employment, workforce, skills, small business and family business” but whatever. His actual tasks are to direct public money to preferred constituencies and take the heat for monumental failures and cruelties like #CensusFail and #Robodebt.
opening spiel: D1 starts with his “states split” narrative. This is the journo favourite about how the federal and NSW governments want one thing and all the other states and territories want another. Vic is the exception here. #Insiders

Yet another week has gone by with Governments of all levels pretending that people on income support don’t exist.

Last week @ACOSS found almost 90% of people on the lowest incomes in lockdown are missing out on disaster payments.

The mental strain people are going through because of lockdown is significant, & for those without the means to get by, it's life threatening.
It’s heartbreaking thinking of the hundreds of thousands of people who are locked down with no additional help, treated as though they are invisible.

seeing 9fax are now just publishing his worthless drivel word for word.
well I mean worthless in public health terms. Obviously it has electoral currency. For the Liberal Party.
inevitability is a tory semiotic btw. They use it to dominate legacy by naturalising their political failures. A recent example is marriage equality. Aggressively oppose, for decades, cause mass harm, then lose, shrug, and say *inevitable* to the dominant minority, who buy it.

Kabul falls, the Taliban is back, opens Speers. Back home NSW has reported highest ever daily case numbers, which Speers calls a “record”. #Insiders
the scenes from Afghanistan have “dented American prestige”, Speers editorialises, and Australia “scrambles” to get its people out. #Insiders
