In case you're ever invited to sup with the Murdoch...

"For example, four applications for electronic scoreboards were marked as eligible and funded, while 10 other applications were marked as ineligible because they requested funding for scoreboards." (just a little of the detail in the ANAO report, though one shouldn't be...

distracted by such enticing tidbits when the main game remains who was calling McKenzie's shots and who knew when that the program had been corrupted by the government.

@MsVeruca  G @jommy_teeood  stuff Ronni, but I'd offer one observation (or teaser): McKenzie's office was setting up the rort's pathway before your man arrived in September.

Accurate description of @nickmcardlefox  's class , a big cut above. As silly as replacing him with an amateur sports anchor for RWC. via @smh 

Only the LNP Gazette's Benson could call it "the alleged". And the headline, like the Black Knight, says 'tis but a flesh wound. Indeed, "Morrison can't be accused of mishandling the latest predicament," Simon says. Don't bother.

If it wasn't the Greens in power or the arsonists, apparently the mobile phones did it. And poor old Dogger is still at the debating stage. Pretty funny stuff.

@vanOnselenP strong finish to your column on page 20 - but I can't help thinking the P1 intro is softer, "2 of Morrison's senior staffers were involved in handling funding applications...and engaging with embattled McKenzie". The hot stuff becomes a contested "claim". Nobbled?

To be absolutely clear, @senbmckenzie  & her political hack staffers effectively stole money from deserving community sports bodies to keep their own snouts in the taxpayers' trough This is a prime example of why...

There is no news in this column. It is merely an attempt to humanise the loss, to push through the protective skin of cynicism that has formed about the Australian heart when confronted with another example of political malfeasance.

So Stunt Morrison drops his pants for Mad King Donald, pledges Australia's allegiance to a lying maniac, needlessly piles on Trump's China trade bashing to offend our most important partner - just in time for impeachment starting. Someone give him the "I'm with stupid" t-shirt.

The point of the Murdoch media's climate denialism? Political power - not economics, not science, not even the pseudo-science it promotes.

I was wrong. Question for all ministers in every interview isn't "When did you become aware sports grants were being electorally targeted?" It's "Was anyone in Cabinet unaware that sports grants were being electorally targeted?" (Supplementary "Is the whole government corrupt?")

Found it. Make that "all-time" low, companion video for

Extraordinary stuff - ramping up his anti-China stance, joining Trump in dumping on UN international bodies, a middle digit raised to global climate change. Worse than anyone could have imagined. He's gone Rowan Dean. via @smh 

Consider yourself warned - embarrass this government and we'll sool the police onto you. "Suspected whistleblowers targeted by police in Helloworld travel scandal" via @smh
