The comms minister Paul Fletcher keeps a watchful eye over the ABC, leaping into action when he disagrees with a headline. If only he’d kept such a watchful eye as infrastructure minister over land near Sydney’s 2nd airport valued at $3m a Liberal donor sold to govt for $30m...

An 8th consecutive day of zero cases of community transmission Australia wide. Importantly no lives lost, no COVID cases on ventilation, none in ICU & cases in Hospital down from 34 on Friday to 25 today. Sadly the world is likely to pass 100 m diagnosed cases this week.

My god it is a palpable relief not to be thinking of him so much or hearing his fucking voice everywhere. I feel that exhalation through my whole body and yes you know exactly who I am talking about don't you

Quoted @DanielAndrewsMP

I don't want to give this person's disgraceful, bigoted views any oxygen.

But when others insist on rewarding them with this country's highest honour – I think it's worth saying again:

Grand Slam wins don't give you some right to spew hatred and create division.

Nothing does.

Hear, hear! Not since Tony Abbott wanted to knight Prince Phillip have we seen such an un-Australian absurdity on Australia Day.

Margaret Court, an Australian tennis legend known for her homophobic comments, is set to receive one of the nation’s highest public service awards. The decision has sparked outrage.

 300  98  85

Margaret Court's career ended 34 years ago, there's an increasingly large segment of Australia that only knows her because we keep giving her awards and/or because she's a bigot.

 640  22  95

Let’s not forget, the award Margaret Court is going to get is on behalf of the British Queen.

It’s shameful that she’ll get it, and nothing to do with tennis.

It’s also unAustralian that we still, in 2021, don’t have an Australian as Head of State, and our own national Awards.

Charming woman of words wows Washington. Charismatic poet, Amanda Gordon, added spark to the US inauguration.
