    Thanks for bailing me out of 10. Now, what line are we taking on handouts for the poor (takers) these days? Lach

  6. Aaron F

    As you always say, poor people need to learn to stand on their own two feet. Hand ups not handouts. PS. Thanks for the new job, 10 was killing me. Still, not as bad as OneTel. Lach

    Ok ok, we’ll let you take over NBN Co so you can monopolise the internet AND pay TV, but only if your coverage of the next election is as good as your last. Malcolm. PS We never had this conversation.

    Rupes. Need you to run stories on how killing Medicare and selling Medibank will be good for competition and premiums. Whatever you do, don’t draw people’s attention to health care costs in the US. Tony A.

    Hi RM, just found out it’s so fucking easy to hack in to peoples voicemails. Should hear the personal and distressing stuff we’re going to print. Had to pay the old bill a huge whack, but well worth it. Best part, no one knows it’s us. Cheers Rebekah 🙂

    … I know my comment above doesn’t apply to the text – but maybe you need a second contest for what the flunky is saying to/asking Rupert

  38. Annie Davie

    Dad, does the phone-hacking account come under R&D or Security? I can never remember. Lachie

  39. Venise Alstergren
