Another good, strong reception for @Renshaw4NthSyd  in Chatswood today. Morrison, Joyce and Zimmerman have taken North Sydney for granted. The only way to get rid of Morrison is to vote for Professor Catherine Renshaw—our candidate.

Check out the gaggle of ‘independent’ Murdoch editors carrying near-identical front pages ridiculing Albo. Despite Murdoch’s CEO assuring us there’s no central political direction! Total BS. Today’s Bias Tracker also shows overwhelming pro-Liberal/anti-Labor stories.

I am deeply troubled by Lachlan Murdoch’s Fox News fanning the racist ‘Great Replacement’ conspiracy theory, including Tucker Carlson amplifying it 400 times. Here’s the US Senate majority leader, Chuck Schumer, after the devastating Buffalo, NY shooting.

Pleased to support Dr Carl Ungerer in the Gold Coast seat of McPherson. The LNP’s Karen Andrews takes this area for granted, keeping them in the dark about the Light Rail’s future. Even the LNP mayor has ripped into them. Meanwhile when we were in office we built Stage 1.

Proud to support @JElliotMP  in Richmond today. I’ve known her for 15 years. Morrison tried to deny her community emergency assistance after the floods. It was only after Justine’s intervention that locals got their fair share of local disaster relief payments. Great local member.

Besides having his own geopolitical puppet show, my friend @ianbremmer  is also a seriously smart bloke. The #powerofcrisis  — like Ian — provides a refreshingly upbeat take on how the 21st century’s biggest threats, can also be leveraged for good. Out now: 

Great to be back in the Hunter yesterday. Campaigning with our great local candidates & MPs: Dan Repacholi in Hunter; Meryl Swanson MP in Paterson; Pat Conroy MP in Shortland. All doing fantastic work, supporting working families facing cost of living pressures.


Australians have watched with growing anger at what the Murdoch media monopoly is doing to our country. A cancer on democracy. Today I am launching a national petition to establish a #MurdochRoyalCommission . If you value our democracy, please sign here:

Morrison is RATf*cking Australians. This is American-style health policy, putting private profits ahead of public safety. It’s a recipe for massive undetected spread among those least able to pay. Mass-testing saves money by taking pressure off hospitals.

Murdoch is quietly scrubbing incriminating Covid-19 misinformation videos from websites ahead of a grilling by the Senate on Friday. Dozens of videos have vanished with no correction or apology for spreading dangerous lies. But don’t worry; we have copies. #MurdochRoyalCommission 

Memo to Dutton: So you think that, as one of the most senior ministers in this shambolic excuse for a govt, that launching a GoFundMe for local flood victims is appropriate? It’s the role of govt to act in natural disasters you fool. Not just subcontract out to the community.
