Tuesday! Essential polling! essentialvision.com.au/category/essen… As is my habit I will now tweet some highlights. Remember, this polling was done Wed–Sun so it doesn’t cover the more very recentest news of all. Here we go...
“There has been no shift in concern about threat of Covid-19 in the past two weeks with 36% very concerned about the threat (37% in early September).” Click for the chart. essentialvision.com.au/coronavirus-co…
“Rating of the Federal Government’s handling of Covid-19 stays steady at 61% rating it very or quite good (59% earlier in the month).” Click for chart. essentialvision.com.au/federal-govern…
“Q. How would you rate your state government’s response to the Covid-19 outbreak?” essentialvision.com.au/state-governme… Image

Right. Time for a look at the final report of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) review of Australia’s mandatory data retention regime, which was tabled in Parliament yesterday. aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_…

This will be a slow thread...
Before I start, I should mention that there’s stories at ZDNet and iTnews...

... and threads by @jpwarren and @MsLods.

Justin is more cynical than Leanne, as you may know.
@jpwarren @MsLods I will skim those four things before continuing this thread. Stand by.

I have just heard that @JamarzOnMarz will be on The Drum tonight, that ABC TV program that I sometimes rail against, but this time I think you should watch it because his campaign deserves your support.
@JamarzOnMarz Oh. Yeah. This is @JamarzOnMarz’s campaign. Worth reading. Worth supporting. change.org/p/stop-indepen…
@JamarzOnMarz Bonus points for “stoked”. :)

Here we go. “Media and the 2020 Election” via the US Studies Centre. Image
These three journos are all saying that when they’re out in the field in the Midwest and South they’re seeing FAR MORE Trump signs than Biden signs. But then we didn’t see many Hillary signs last time.
The polling shows a record number of undecideds.

I see that last Wednesday’s appalling exchange between Senators Abetz and Fierravanti-Wells and @wesachau @redrabbleroz @yun_aus is in the news again today, so for those new to it here are the details.

A thread...
Last week the Senate Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade References Committee was hearing evidence in its Inquiry into “Issues facing diaspora communities in Australia”. Quite the irony. The exchange starts on page 5 of Hansard (page 9 of the PDF). drive.google.com/file/d/1Pmiakd…
If you prefer, then here’s the audio (11m40s). drive.google.com/file/d/1D2cwmB…

(Unfortunately there’s no video. This was an audio conference call per XOVID-19 procedures.)
