    I love Department of Australia but one captioned pic just feels a bit light on. Works great on twitter though.

    Agree with EMC This one’s a peach, but it’s not quite the gold nugget that’s worth crawling over the paywall for.
    Keep digging in that sandpit.

    Agree that more sandpit digging is required. Tim Wilson is clearly more concerned with appearances and phtzo ops. A bit of Brandis window dressing while the real evil lurks effaced. Cheap at $250 k a year. Piss off, Tim.

    Is that why I can’t bear Tim?

    Yep, with yas all emc, paddy, klewso and Dez.
    Quite enjoying the process of sandpit playtime (but… sigh…. OK OK… get over him… he left…)

    Another smug ‘winners are grinners’ suit at the Toadyland trough.

    I’m a supporter of discourse… preferably well-informed discourse between ‘left’ and ‘right’…
    TW may have developed the intellectual capacity to be a reasoning conservative spokesperson (or is that put-a-spoke-in-it-person?) – lord knows the ‘right’ can do better than the Weasel or Blot – but off to the tax-payer’s payroll he went at the first ‘croak’ from bucket-head.
