  1. “Donaghy declared that “Melbourne is not Wuhan””
    Quite right. I believe Wuhan has less community transmission than Melbourne has at the moment.

  2. If Moselmane isn’t the subject of the ASIO investigation why has he been thrown out of the ALP and why do they want to suspend him from Parliament?

    I have no idea whether Mr Moselmane is the target of the ASIO investigation. However, the ALP have been trying to get rid of him for some time as he is a liability, and wasting the opportunity would be folly.

  3. Bloody hell! So Downer thinks that lying should be allowed. Fletcher accused Trioli of quoting from the Greens when she argued with his bodgy figures, too, which riled her.

    I’m going to advise the government not to participate in @QandA One minister and all the rest are political opponents. Better to leave it entirely as a @AustralianLabor @Greens show. The one @LiberalAus guest is only there to be denigrated.

    They normally have to if they want to tell their story. 🙂

    Didn’t watch Q&A. Preferred to watch a repeat of Inspector George Gently.

    From comments here, it looks as though this Paul Fletcher character has attended the circular breathing training that the PM and other Liberals seem to have had.

    Can’t bring myself to watch repeats of Gently…having seen how it all ends for him in the last episode ever I just find it too sad…or something…..
