A thread derived from this document while taking into account all of the changes in our welfare system, since - The Forrest Review was published 5-years ago: pmc.gov.au/sites/default/… I've wondered for a while if Palantir tech is being used for the likes of robodebt.. #auspol 1.
Andrew Forrest: 'Big data mining with specialist fraud firms like Palantir Technologies have proven extremely efficient at identifying fraud in a manner that the cash
system has no hope of replicating.' While it's not direct it's certainly a connection and explains a lot. 2.
Remember this gent: abc.net.au/news/2019-07-2… Straight away I thought of Palantir because when I wrote: melmacpolitics.com/2018/04/26/aus… I learned how their tech can be used to data mine billions and trillions of records in the hope of finding a nugget of value, be that an old debt, etc 3.

Hi! I thought it might be useful to start a #AusVotes19 welfare thread pulling together some of the interesting news and analysis that emerges during the election campaign. There have already been a few great pieces. (I'll also shamelessly plug my own work.) #auspol
.@DawsonEJ makes the case for making the best of Labor's "root and branch" #Newstart review. Demand it is fast, wide-ranging, and the increases it delivers are sufficient, she says smh.com.au/politics/feder… #AusVotes19 #auspol
@DawsonEJ Waleed Aly today argues that, despite all the talk of a fair go from Morrison and Shorten, "#Newstart remains stalled because, for now at least, our notion of fairness is tied to the worker." theage.com.au/politics/feder… #AusVotes19 #auspol

Antoinette Braybrook says #ParentsNext is another attempt to "income manage" for First Nations people. Data shows ATSI people have been disproportionately impacted by payment suspensions #auspol
Human Rights Commission president Rosalind Croucher says the AHRC is “gravely concerned” about compulsory and punitive approach of #ParentsNext. She says program is not compliant with Australia’s human rights obligations and has not been shown to meet its stated goals. #auspol
deleted and reposted tweet about Croucher's comments as I misstated her title

I’m at the Senate Inquiry into #ParentsNext today. Thread 👇🏽
Hearing from @CSMCVIC, @GoodShepANZ & @CFECFW. Their key issues w #ParentsNext:
1) miscategorises parents as ‘unemployed’ - parenting is work
2) should be voluntary, inappropriate to link parent support to TCF
3) undermines human rights obligations, targets single & ATSI mothers
Question from @SenatorSiewert about privacy prompts testimony about single mothers being fearful about disclosing info about kids schools etc when their abusive ex partners are stalking them. Getting family violence survivors exempted from #ParentsNext described as a “minefield”
