it sounds to me as tho the Morrison government is legislating to let employers bring casuals under the part-time rubric and remove all loading - penalty, overtime, casual - from both. So slightly higher job security for converted casuals; lower pay for everyone.
which would mean employers will be better off; workers will be worse off. Anyone who thinks the Morrison government would design industrial relations reform with any other outcome is paying so little attention as to be safety ignored.
oh and as the 12 month deadline for converting casuals to part-time permanent looms, lots of #JobChurn, which will offset the slightly higher security for some with massively worse precarity for many; AND which Morrison will manipulate for headline employment figures.
even more precarious terms and conditions that bosses can force on workers, including additional costs just to stay employed.

this reads to me like distilled neoliberalism, mainlined straight into the bloodstream and pumped by the neoliberal heart to every cell in the body, including the brain.…
conflating politics with public administration is her goal here. There is no excuse. She knows, and if she didn’t which she does, she ought to know. It is called constructive knowledge and highly placed public officials like Premiers have it. Image
deliberately misinforming the people on basic democratic principle and institutional power arrangements has been a conservative project since they lost the English civil war in 1651. Image

this is why the press gallery should stop broadcasting and publishing everything said by the lying liar liar who lies until the veracity of his claims, not just the fact that he said a thing, has been verified.
press gallery journalists tell themselves that every lie dropped by these irredeemable liars is newsworthy because they are in government. Which is not in the public interest; but is in the interests of the Liberal Party. Image
the next step is to speculate the wholly disproven: that there exists some future point in time at which Scott Morrison stops sabotaging the national, regional and global interest. All based on words Scott Morrison or his staffers say. ImageImage

good morning☀️happy Sunday!
Today on the #Insiders couch are Pat Karvelas, Phil Coorey and David Crowe.
The interview is with Penny Wong.
#TalkingPictures is with Amy Remeikis.
This thread is not fact checked.
I reserve the option to block snitch-taggers.
Speers opening spiel is on “an offensive tweet” and how the Morrison histrionics that followed [paraphrased] #Insiders
seems Speers is of the view that Morrison should have delegated responding to a troll tweet to someone more junior (ya think?) not that he is saying so directly. #Insiders

oh dear. ABC radio is “reporting” spliced grabs of how media reported the Morrison pantomime followed by audio of Dave do-nothing diplomacy Sharma saying Australia has a measured approach. He must have watched a different presser to all those journos, editors, and the public.
“280 character diplomacy”!! because why not shift the dangerous racism of men like Trump and Morrison onto a medium that journalists personally use copiously while projecting that same medium to legacy audiences as a threat because they get held to account by twitter audiences.
cute too how media collectively and lazily run with Morrison’s inaccurate description of a tweeted image. Reminds me of when Porter claimed he had no problem with Turnbull until Dutton’s (s 44(i)) “citizenship issue”. In fact, Dutton has a pecuniary interest (s 44(v)) issue.

I see Scott Morrison is staying well out in front of the worst foreign policy leader in the history of federation stakes.
I mean apart from the serious issues here, Morrison has done fuck all else than share repugnant and fake images this last week.
worth pausing to notice how excited most journalists get about bilateral conflict with zero thought for people on the ground too. If you can stand it. So many wannabe war correspondents.

remember when the press gallery hailed Scott Morrison appointing Ken Wyatt to the federal Indigenous portfolio as progress in and of itself? Yeah well the rest of the polity is way ahead of their obstructive “voice to government” camel.…
people are listening to Voice Treaty Truth and the Uluru Statement from the Heart, not the compromised mess that the Morrison government is peddling.
when asked why his government rejects Voice Treaty Truth, including a referendum on a constitutionally enshrined Voice, they speculate in the face of all evidence about a future referendum result. Blaming what the people *might do* for what the Morrison government *is doing*.
