@Soupnoldclothes  @RNBreakfastThat  point is well known, including to anyone who might read your tweet. More relevantly, PVO says Porter should absolutely be examined, and gives critical insight into the govt’s specific political motivations for protecting Porter.

Josh Frydenberg trying to defend the indefensible on @RNBreakfast  right now, blahing away the Government’s Parliamentary vote to protect #ChristianPorter  from examination over the secret sources of his legal fees money.

Respectful congratulations to our rivals @9 NewsAUS⁩ - a clean sweep of TV News nominations at this year’s @walkleys ⁩

Don’t believe a word of it - NSW is not following the Doherty National plan. It is blowing it up, writes Laura Tingle.

#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.”

Victoria Police Commissioner Shane Patton has tonight repeatedly called out “right wing extremists” for having infiltrated #antivax  protests in Melbourne.
