A warning for the ALP from British Labour’s disaster? “...ex-Labour voters complained that Starmer and his MPs had been in their area day after day during the campaign, but had had nothing at all to say.”

Strange police tactics tonight in #HongKong  - repeatedly and violently preventing protesters from leaving #PolyUHK . My earlier report charts the escalation -

#DanielAndrews on #PeterDutton  saying he should “swallow his pride” and ask for more C’wealth support: “If I need something I don’t hesitate to ask - and I’ll tell you who I ask. I ask the Prime Minister. I don’t waste my time asking the bloke he beat in a party room ballot.”

“Forcing taxpayers to renovate other people’s homes to aid some tradie, who probably earns more than the average taxpayer, is economic and political stupidity”, says @Adam_Creighton  in the @australian 

A man I know, with two Masters degrees and a background in academia and finance, is unemployed. He points out #MathiasCormann ’s hourly RAAF flight rate is almost two-months of his #Jobseeker  rate of $824/fortnight.

Anne Summers: “Morrison has clearly signalled that women will get nothing from him. He needs to be told he will get nothing in return.” #auspol
