they want to punish a teenager for what employers and politicians do.
OMFG WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE MEN how many young people could be employed for the ridiculous cost of sending in 20 fucking police to criminalise a single worker whose boss chose to employ him on a casual basis.
full article on the waste of 20 police officers time prosecuting [checks notes] one casual worker whose circumstances are wholly caused by his bosses and inequality- and insecurity- and anxiety- and poverty-creating neoliberal governments.

abc.net.au/news/2020-11-2…
deploying 20 cops to comb the statute books until they find an offence to charge the person they want to criminalise for his bosses’ decisions. Where theres cops theres crime.
please #auslaw twitter put the call out if you know any public interest advocacy lawyers in Adelaide who will fight this off.

good morning☀️happy Sunday! Today on #Insiders are Angus Campbell at 0900 hours, Saturday Paper journalist and An Unwinnable War author Karen Middleton; ABC politics editor Andrew Probyn and murdoch columnist and Liberal Party leader chronicler Professor Peter van Onselen.
the second interview is with shadow employment minister Brendan O’Connor. All tweets are hashtagged for muting convenience. Please do not tag journalists politicians media outlets etc in replies. Google snitchtagging instead of asking me why. Thanks. #Insiders
“a moment of national shame and a stain in the name of our most elite soldiers” is Speers opening line. So yep, the blame will be spread away from its source, the ADF and the politicians who unleash them on the world. #Insiders

props to Laura Tingle for this incredibly rare bird: press gallery output that provides meaningful context to accurately represent Morrison’s relentless politicisation of the military.

abc.net.au/news/2020-11-2…
Morrison’s relentless politicisation of the military and militarisation of policy. Tingle even notes his crass and disrespectful decision to shoehorn the military into what is supposed to be an acknowledgement of country and First Peoples.
more on how Liberal-led governments politicise the ADF from Paul Barrett, the former defence department secretary unceremoniously edged out by prime minister John Howard for speaking truth to power.

lies. Scott Morrison has already consigned any future war crimes findings to the past.
and has sent Josh Frydenberg out to dribble on about superannuation, which the Liberals hate, because it is a Labor innovation. They already enabled people to run down retirement savings instead of providing an adequate federal government response to high unemployment.
Frydenberg is purportedly talking about super, will inevitably get war crimes questions, and blither some whitewashing denial and bullshit in response. The media will seize on his answers and broadcast the government narrative all day. That’s why he is doing a presser right now.

imperial white patriarchy stands by unspeakably cruel white male killers and tells you and your descendants to do the same. For imperial white patriarchy. And inherited wealth. Image
filthy lies since 1770 but go off with the discovery doctrine bullshit. Image
1770: we discovered Australia!
~250 years of colonising violence~
2020: sometimes we do bad things!

imagine sitting in the Canberra press gallery paid by ninefax to catch up with twitter [checks notes] over four years after the fact.
I guess Malcolm Turnbull will gravely renounce this wicked policy he and his Treasurer took to the 2016 election, the one they scraped home after losing 16 seats, on the back of artificially inflating their budget bottom line by unlawfully extorting cash from the poorest voters.

presumably it will go without saying by the Canberra press gallery that apart from all the mental health conditions they created and exacerbated, this is a typical example of Liberal Party economic management, a thing they are continually and spectacularly bad at on every level.
presumably press gallery stories will also minimise or erase #Robodebt activists from their stories. None of this would have happened without Asher for a start. And many many others.
listening to ABC radio heaving and choking on its desire to provide nothing but the Morrison government framing of its $1.2 billion hardship, mental health and death machine #Robodebt
