the first Speers metric for the night is 'a more normal Liberal margin'. the first Karvelas misspeak for teh night is saying there was a huge swing to Alan Tudge. She meant to Mary Doyle. Easy mistake to make when only one of the two is actually standing tonight.

Queensland parliament overrides Queensland human rights Act to accelerate criminalisation and incarceration of children.

theguardian.com/australia-news… increasing incarceration necessarily causes a net increase in violence because incarceration is itself extremely violent. These people are literally claiming that more violence = more community safety.

“police say they issued a caution under the Young Offenders Act” to the teen who was racist at Latrell Mitchell - ABC radio news. fascinated to know the charge. A NSW police caution requires people under 18 years old to “make admissions” in a police station. The police cautioning *process* - ie without judicial oversight - takes the child/teen from “presumptive innocent” to “young offender” status.

this was the exact period leading up to calling the 2016 election when the prime minister and treasurer gave *different dates for the actual federal budget* because Morrison was sweating on #Robodebt numbers to give journalists - who obliged - for the Liberal Party campaign. the role of the press gallery in enabling #Robodebt cannot be overstated. Every day for years they uncritically amplified whatever Morrison said, repeated Liberal Party economic management lies, and openly admired his endless campaigning.

regular reminder that these fabricated on-paper billions were a *political* imperative. Robodebt cost billions of public dollars more than any headlined projected revenue. There was no actual fiscal “need”. The program was Coalition “economic management” campaign messaging. the Canberra press gallery and their corporate media bosses are an essential element of Coalition campaign lies. The illegality of #Robodebt was well established by the time #ausmedia swung in behind Morrison in May 2019.

this kind of thing is supported and justified by every single police force in Australia. All of them fight tooth and nail to maintain and EXPAND vicious treatment of children.

theguardian.com/australia-news… criminalisation and incarceration endanger whole communities. Create poverty. Cause marginalisation. “Disproportionate impacts” are a central organising system, not a by-product, of the carceral state.
