Liberal for Monbulk John Schurink is blatantly lying to voters on Facebook. As a former member of the CFA Board, Schurink would certainly know the claims he is making are false & misleading. I'll pick out some examples in this thread. 1/ #springst #vicvotes @rwillingham
Schurink is conflating the 2016 CFA EBA as proposed by the Fair Work Commission with the 2017 fire service reforms. The reforms *remove* UFU members from the CFA. There will be *no* EBA and therefore *no* influence on CFA decisions, let alone "veto" or "control". 2/
That is a desperate attempt to recycle the 2016 "Hands Off the CFA" anti-EBA federal election campaign, turning it bizarrely on a reform that is *the complete opposite* of a union takeover of the CFA. Such a brazen, deliberate attempt to mislead voters is an absolute disgrace. 3/

@OskaArcher @MarkDuffett So a slight delay… my team of simians jetted in from Japan overnight where it looks like they had a quite lovely time… they had to drop off a NEG at Labor Party HQ en route however 😼
@OskaArcher @MarkDuffett I figured in the end that the "contour" format was best with a large dataset. Full year's correlation data for SA with other states (Qld though only recently introduced wind generation into the mix, so I used the "shade" format instead)
@OskaArcher @MarkDuffett Next I'll get Queensland out of the way since other than showing what one, then what looks like a second wind farm coming on stream looks like, the correlations have limited value. #whtr

If you're voting in #vicvotes and are wondering who all these minor parties are, then I've got the thread for you. These are my quick summaries, not intended to be dispassionate—I write them for myself to help guide my preferences, shared in case they help/interest others. 1/25
I'm not here to spruik anyone; I've never been a member of any party. But I *am* here to spruik voting below the line. You get two ballots: green for lower house (Legislative Assembly, where govt is formed), white for upper house (Legislative Council, house of review). 2/
In #vicvotes, you choose whether to vote above or below the line on the white ballot for the upper house. If you vote above the line you are allocated preferences chosen by the party; this year they are super dodgy, lots of deals to game the system. So vote below the line! 3/

#Livetweeting from #Manningham #NELink forum, where it's a full house, @tonybmorton currently providing background, talking about LA traffic issues, now explaining #inducedtraffic effect, especially when transport alternatives are poor
Now onto #NELink, origins in 1960s freeway plan, linking F18 / F19, prime objective making it 'easier' to drive into central Melbourne... then find a parking spot... Tony onto explaining the triple threat of #WestGateTunnel / #EWLink /#NELink
What's driving this massive road developments, despite poor BCR for #EWLink? @tonybmorton believes it's government allowing unsolicited proposals. And Transurban pushing their commercial interests
