good morning happy Sunday☀️ today on #Insiders are murdoch politics editor Samantha Maiden, murdoch politics reporter Sarah Ison and 9fax columnist Jennifer Hewett. The interview is with an opposition party (LPA) leader, Peter Dutton.
opening spiel: no mass blackouts but panic crisis fears etc anyway. #Insiders
“suspend the energy market” is such a weird phrase to me. The market? Suspended? Is nobody buying or selling any energy? #Insiders
montage is on AEMO the actual energy regulator doing its job which is reported as SEIZED CONTROL and UNPRECEDENTED INTERVENTION. Bowen explaining to journos that storage exists and so does long term thinking. #Insiders
#makingNews includes freeing Assange and Perottet declaring it is time to put the climate wars behind us. The Aboriginal flag will fly permanently from where? The Bridge? I missed that sorry #Insiders
Speers editorialises that the energy crisis is behind us and the CRISIS has eased and we have avoided blackouts. Hewett says the energy market is complicated and “nobody knew” which is code for journalists not explaining neoliberal policy and privatisation. #Insiders
lmao Ison on “profits ahead of people” which she says is often how capitalism works. #Insiders
clip of the head of something - was it AEMO? who is not identified by chyron - and back to Speers saying crisis crisis and flicks to Maiden who says it is on Morrison and Turnbull and Abbott for failing to fix the energy market/policy #Insiders
still going on the no-blackout energy crisis. Hewett complains that Victoria is not allowing gas exploration. She says it is convenient to blame Morrison. Storage tho, which is a useful contribution. More batteries. #Insiders
the Greens are in a difficult spot says Ison. It will be interesting, fascinating, say Ison and Speers. That journalists are still trying to kick along “climate wars” is unconscionable at this point. #Insiders
clip of Perottet saying let’s end the climate wars to segue to Dutton who is asked about the “ideological” wars. Dutton says there is blame all round. #Insiders
asked about the failure of federal Coalition governments to build renewable energy supply Dutton says we “would be in a more dire situation” in some alternative universe where his party and their Coalition partners were not the government. #Insider
Dutton says he wants to have a “sensible pragmatic” conversation about the technology not being there or something. He is getting really agitated here. What’s happening with the economy? he babbles #Insiders
where the wires will be rolled out? The detail is on them? Dutton says Bowen has been telling pensioners to turn off their heaters, a lie. It is happening at nighttime, says Dutton. He wants to have an unemotional debate, he says emotionally. #Insiders
picks up on the Ison comment about negotiating with the Greens. Do you agree with 43% by 2030? Dutton suspects he will end up with something like 35% and the Coalition will not support legislation to codify the net zero target. #Insiders
they are not a government in exile, says Dutton (😂😂) He accuses Hartcher, a political journalist, of speaking to Bowen, a politician, on his portfolio of climate change. #Insiders
what the Coalition took to the election. Fact check: and were roundly defeated. #Insiders
on AUKUS. Dutton says he has spoken with weapons manufacturers in the US. Speers asks where the two subs claim was publicly available before Dutton put it in his column for a murdoch masthead. Dutton babbles. #Insiders
Speers presses on. Was the information not classified but based on conversations with the Connecticut supplier? Dutton repeats his claim that it was not classified information and asserts his “professional judgement” as former defence minister #Insiders
an Indigenous Voice to Parliament? What should we make if supporter Lesser being appointed shadow AG? Dutton says the government has not seen the detail and segues away to spouting shameful racist stereotypes and false accusations #Insiders
Dutton insists the failure to get a referendum up is not on Morrison or Gillard or anyone else - this is a recurring rhetorical theme - he likes to spread blamelessness across Coalition and previous Labor governments. #Insiders
I missed the Maiden response to weapons manufacturers. Hewett recaps some Labor campaign promises. Clip of Tony Burke on the FWC minimum wage increase decision. Speers invites Ison to fret about inflation. #Insiders
why the lowest paid workers should be made responsible for lowering inflation is not explained. Clip of Sales interviewing RBA governor on interest rate predictions. Lowe says inflation could hit 7% #Insiders
clip of Julian Assange’s dad putting plea to Albanese. Maiden says Assange has been in some form of detention since 2022? Did I mishear order did she misspeak. Anyway yes Assange has been self/detained for a decade or more. She says Assange has to be released #Insiders
it is essentially journalism [that he has been locked up for] says Maiden, saying she knows there are arguments about whether Wikileaks was journalism but it is. Ison says Albanese does not like megaphone diplomacy. #Insiders
Maiden wonders what the British government did agreeing to extradite Assange and Hewett says Biden has a lot of domestic problems and Speers says Trump flipped and flopped on Assange. #Insiders
next. National cabinet. The Commonwealth has extended covid health funding for three months. Hewett says there is relief all round, states and territories, Labor and Liberal, about certainty of funding “with the possible exception of Peter Dutton” lol #Insiders
the NSW childcare announcement. Maiden says Perottet is complex and intellectual. He is also acting like tory white males in 2022 discovered the value of affordable childcare (ed) #insiders
Hewett says NSW is the only mainland Liberal government - she means Coalition - and do they are pitching on energy and to women for the election next year and differentiating themselves from the federal Liberals. #Insiders
Ison says she is from WA which is very parochial and notes Andrews and Perottet doing a joint childcare announcement represents half the population. Maiden tell Ison to fly her flag and be a proud sandgroper. #Insiders
#TalkingPictures is up. Amanda is a back to you Speersy laydee.
#FinalObservations 1 is Maiden saying Perrottet and Kean appearing at a presser with Scott Morrison to announce a housing policy that is identical to the federal Labor policy. She nearly spat her coffee says Maiden #Insiders
#FinalObservations 2 is Hewett saying that blaming the previous government will wear thin and the clock is ticking on the Albanese government to deliver on energy policy. #Insiders
#FinalObservations 3 is Ison saying there will be gender analysis and a Womens economic security element to the October budget. #Insiders
the outtake is footage of McGowan and a bunch of suits guffawing. #Insiders
this has been another edition of watching #Insiders so you don’t have to👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼

Gillard went to the backbench until the 2013 election. It is senior and disgraced Liberal Party losers who sulk, cause by-elections, threaten a minority government, lose previously safe seats etc - see Howard, Abbott, Turnbull, Frydenberg, Bishop, Porter.
Keating, Rudd and Gillard left the parliament after Labor lost government, and Labor retained those seats. Howard lost government and the Liberals lost the seat. Turnbull stormed out and the Liberals lost the seat. Abbott stayed and the Liberals lost the seat.
to clarify, there is an empty field of fucks I give about whether Morrison stays or leaves the parliament.
My gripe is with constant and consistent bothsidesing that elevates Liberal Party losers way above their pay grade. Its purpose is to [falsely] dominate legacy narratives.

another Speers vehicle. So many. Image
it grinds my gears that we fully fund the career aspirations of this mediocrity.
702 Drive - he was just on mocking Chris Bowen’s pronunciation of nuclear. RN Breakfast - his regular murdoch reunion with Maiden is on tomorrow morning. It is impossible for ABC audiences who follow politics to avoid the man.

good morning from unceded Darug lands. Today on #Insiders are 9fax culture editor Osman Faruqi, TSP political corro Karen Middleton and murdoch editor James Campbell.
opening spiel: new cabinet sworn in, Albanese government “hit early” by energy crisis. No word on the causes of the crisis. #insiders
everyone knew energy prices would rise, but not by this much, says Speers. He claims that while the new government can not be BLaMeD for the crisis it will be JuDgEd by its response. #Insiders

Scott Morrison instructed Border Force to promote his OSB policy on election day.…
trashing the public sphere to the miserable end.
ABC radio is reporting this debased decision by the failed former federal Liberal leader as a “request”.
useful as a Gaedjinquiry™️
