opening spiel: a turning point in Ukraine. Xi is a “great friend” of Putin. More weaponry sought from the west by Zelenskyy #Insiders
the Australian PM is in London, and now he has met the new King [of Australia]. This absurdity goes unremarked. We will cross to one of the 29 ABC staff over there later. #Insiders

good morning from unceded Darug lands☀️today on #Insiders are press gallery veterans Laura Tingle (now ABC) and Paul Kelly (murdoch sinecure for life or something). The interviews are with Prime Minister Anthony Albanese and LOTO Peter Dutton. And John Howard.
opening spiel: the GG is about to declare Charles III king of Australia. Speers says the death of QEII is a profound moment “for Australia”. It would be more profound if nobody declared Charles III our king lol #Insiders
she visited Parliament House, where Speers is now, he says again, 11 years ago. He then claims collective “affection” for QEII on behalf of 25 million people, which is simply incapable of being accurate. She was there through [lists some atrocities without blame] #Insiders

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are TSP chief political corro Karen Middleton, ABC journo-at-large Fran Kelly, and Guardian Aust politics corro Sarah Martin. The interview is with Skills and Training Minister Brendan O’Connor.
opening spiel is a rundown of jobs summit announcements, including “no quick fix on wages”. Speers highlights the skilled migration intake, TAFE places and working pensioners. #Insiders
we are then told “the tone” matters as much as concrete outcomes. Last week we were told that real outcomes matter more than talkfest announcements.
This type of coverage is about media asserting control over public perception. #Insiders

Cool of media to notice now. #Insiders
Speers reels off a list of workers in low paid feminised industries. Underpaid and under-valued workers for as long as these jobs have existed. #Insiders

opening spiel: the new parliament is about to sit. I shoulda said Burke is probably the interview as new Leader the House. Speers then lists a roll call of disasters. #Insiders
there will be plenty of focus on the new parliament, says Soeers, of his colleagues. He then equivocates cost of living with the plagues and climate catastrophes. #Insiders

what Albanese is not saying - a specific wage rise beyond the 5+% for workers on the minimum wage - and where he is going - to patch up relations with France (not said: which were trashed by Scott Morrison) and to shake hands with Zelensky. #Insiders

opening spiel: new cabinet sworn in, Albanese government “hit early” by energy crisis. No word on the causes of the crisis. #insiders
everyone knew energy prices would rise, but not by this much, says Speers. He claims that while the new government can not be BLaMeD for the crisis it will be JuDgEd by its response. #Insiders

opening spiel: the campaign is in its last “desperate” days. He means the Liberaks feel desperate. Everyone else feels buoyant. The prime minister has promised to change, says Speers. He repeats the master campaigner lie. #Insiders
the show is filming in the seat of Reid this week, and Speers says things are more negative than positive there. I guess he means *for the Liberal Party*, that being his singular perspective. #Insiders

opening spiel: a jump in inflation, probably interest rate rise, and now cost of living is front and centre in the campaign, says Speers. #Insiders
in other words, headline economic figures reflect Coalition economic management so disastrous that even the press gallery has noticed. #Insiders

good morning from unceded Darug lands☀️today on #Insiders are murdoch politics editor Samantha Maiden, 9fax politics editor Peter Hartcher, and ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn. It is an unnecessary and indulgent 90 minute show with two interviews.
the interviews are with shadow health minister Mark Butler and foreign affairs prime minister for women Marise Payne #Insiders.

This thread is not fact-checked. It is not apartisan, and I reject phoney bothsides framing. I also block snitch taggers and am not your dictionary.
opening spiel: The Gaffe. Morrison’s transphobia. “Vulnerabilities” of leaders are bothsided.
What’s the Morrison perspective, skip? he may not be popular but we should vote for him anyway. The Gaffe. Transphobia, again.

A first look at @David_Speers.
The watch messes with the left shirt cuff.
I'll be keeping an eye out for shoes (probably those f***ing boots) and socks. Also on the coffee plunger.

I don't think I saw this light blue tie, white shirt and grey suit effort from @Birmo, replying to the #BudgetReply.
It's classy but unadventurous.

Slight crotch whiskers from @David_Speers this morning.
The hair is overstyled, as it so often is.
