see how the fatally catastrophic failures of the Berejiklian government, borne by people in low income areas, are reported as facts about “the health system”; while her promises of privileges for privileged people are framed as her [future] achievements. It is quite something.
and the Berejiklian policy of privileges for privileged people are contingent on the Morrison government, having royally screwed up vaccination procurement, prioritising vaccine dose distribution in NSW. Sydney Liberals mate. I am telling you. They are the most disgusting people.
her ideological fellow travellers in the press are terrified that consequences of her nasty partisan decisions might actually reach their suburbs, their families. So we get these normalising narratives, like triage is happening in some other country.
you and I subsidise stratospheric school fees for wealthy parents while she weaponises frontline teen workers in heavily policed LGAs as cover for her elitist political priorities of delivering vaccines and dining out and overseas holidays to the Liberal Party base.
every day she promises to infect every state and territory; she hoards vaccine doses for her constituents; blames the people who keep this city running for what she has caused, which is the NSW health system to be overwhelmed; and wraps it all up in Liberal Party “freedom” comms.
it is grotesque. How anyone can choose to polish this catastrophic shitshow into phoney factual framing is beyond my comprehension.
ps politicians are responsible for their decisions and media outlets are responsible for their decisions. Only Coalition politicians and their corporate media backers can execute abuses of power on this scale. Not individual voters. The political class.
listen. And Berejiklian government ministers are all over media today, promoting their desire for massive public spending on state surveillance infrastructure to bring on privileges for the privileged and boost private profits for their client donors.…
the absolute moral bankruptcy of this vicious and corrupt regime.

by characterising it as a blind trust, he is telling everyone that the political donation is an investment vehicle for his donor/s.
hey remember when Tony Abbott set up an anonymised trust to fund legal actions against Pauline Hanson.…

in case #Insiders forgets to devote as much time to catastrophic failures by the NSW government as it did to a speech by the Queensland premier last week, a brief overview: Berejiklian has lost control of the people in eastern Sydney and of the virus in western Sydney.
good morning from unceded Darug lands☀️today on #Insiders are former Liberal Party staffer and 9fax columnist Niki Savva; Ch 10 co-host and columnist Waleed Aly; Guardian politics corro Sarah Martin.
Interview is with shadow minister for education and for women, Tanya Plibersek.
opening spiel: NSW unveils it’s plan to re-open. It is “high stakes” - for some - and the prime minister is cheering the premier on. Other states are anxious. #Insiders

Q: why are people dying of covid at home without being diagnosed?
Hazzard: there are people in large households who want (sic) to go on earning income.
exactly no detail on how to access your become support. The state and federal governments have set up income supports, says Hazzard, and defaults back to blaming people on low incomes in large households.
the NSW government, which has completely failed to control this outbreak, is essentially accusing low income workers in large households of killing their family members by providing for their families.

“many were surprised by her decision” goodness where is that devotion to conflict journalism now.
please do not link me to the newscorp headline. I have seen that clickbait. It will evaporate inside 24 hours.
I had no idea polling shows that approval of Berejiklian is below 50% but fondly* recall lengthy journalistic discussion about a pandemic incumbency dividend when Labor Premiers Palasczuzk and McGowan romped back in and Liberal Party Premier Gutwein just scraped back.

the re-opening of NSW is being run by a woman who does not distinguish essential retail outlets from entertainment venues.
it is her personal choice not to associate with anyone who is not fully vaccinated, which is a thing wealthy people in wealthy areas with unessential jobs can do so that’s nice for her.
handouts to business from the good people of NSW are being touted again today. These are direct vote-buying measures for the Liberal Party base. Meanwhile, the life-saving measures of test-and-isolate payments and ambulance fee waivers for covid patients are NEVER EVER mentioned.

look. Morrison is talking about us, not to us. His summit speech and subsequent campaign comms on it are addressed to males who only need to be told he is doing something for the little laydeez mate, to maintain false “good bloke” self-image and their precious votes.
there is no affordable housing strategy; no serious attempt at law reform; he has legislative amendments designed to HARM single mums before the parliament. This summit tells his misogynist base he is “doing something” about the laydeez. They then go jeez what more do women want.
the vicious Morrison government attacks on single mums, which force women and children to stay in households with violent males and deliberately make income insecurity even worse, are contained in the Social Security* Amendment Bill analysed by Asher Wolf here:
