so I’m at this 50th. Just turned on #Insiders to see Scott Morrison doing a piece to camera - Turnbull tried this technique after the marriage equality amendment was passed - on his religious discrimination bill. Followed by Bowen calling the bill friendless. Happy Sunday!
missed what the papers say. Happily caught a clip of Attorney General Christian Poster saying thug thugs thuggery thug thug. He seems bright :/ #Insiders

good morning pollie watchers! The #Insiders panel this week is Guardian editor Lenore Taylor, journo turned intellectual Mark Kenny and Annika Smethurst who works for the murdoch press. The interview is on “stimulus” and “surplus”.
the opening gambit spruiks the government’s big spending announcement and how the prime minister would like his big spending announcement to be framed. Kelly obliged #Insiders
montage splices Labor and Liberal politicians critiquing each other. Recall that one of them is the actual government. #Insiders

good morning pollie watchers! The #Insiders host this Sunday is Fran Kelly and the interview is with federal Greens MP Adam Bandt, whose party has a higher Nationals vote than the actual Nationals Party.
the #Insiders opening gambit is that the fire season is unprecedented (as opposed to unpredicted, that ship has sailed). Fran tells us politicians are bickering instead of showing leadership. “The Greens and the Nationals are raising the temperature” she says, misguidedly.
the montage shows fire, fire and more fire interspersed with clips of politicians bumbling about in their ineffective and self-serving way. The MickMcMac nonsense gets an airing. Morrison is as usual framed as tho he’s not a metaphorical arsonist who loves coal #Insiders

good morning pollie watchers! The #Insiders host this Sunday is Fran Kelly and the interview is with Anthony Albanese. Please be advised that this thread is not fact checked and snitch taggers will be blocked 👋🏼
the opening #Insiders gambit is that “everything” went wrong in May and Labor were “looking at themselves in the mirror”. It makes “brutal reading” says Fran with relish. And we’re told that likeability is super important because yeah thanks political journalism. Good job.
the usual scare campaign support broadcast [death tax] as we are governed by sadists who have driven over 2,030 people on Centrelink to an early grave and 27 asylum seekers to their deaths and their climate change acceleration policies destroy life as we know it #Insiders

Good morning pollie watchers! The #Insiders host this Sunday is Fran Kelly. The interview is with hi-viz-wearing, climate-change-denying, coal-corporation-spruiking, Barnaby Joyce protégé, Queensland LNP Senator, and Minister for Resources and Northern Australia, Matthew Canavan.
also on #Insiders this week are Laura Tingle (ABC 730, Nine-Fairfax AFR), David Marr (The Guardian Australia) and Phil Coorey (also AFR).
The “drought galvanised the National Party” says Fran “demanding more money and more political credit”. This is the story that centres Joyce as tho he was not forced by scandal to resign the Nationals leadership, the deputy prime ministership, and several ministries #Insiders
