Our govt launched a plan for a new generation of subs in 2009. This govt has botched its implementation over 8 years, wasted up to $4 billion and produced zero subs. What we need is a national China strategy rather than just the “drums of war” rhetoric. twitter.com/abc730/status/…

Well done @AlboMP, stating the hard facts. His comments here. youtube.com/watch?v=sxAc5g…

My government commissioned a doubling of the submarine fleet in ‘09. Since 2013 we’ve had 6 ministers, 3 PMs, now the 3rd sub plan from this lot. Up to $4 billion wasted & not a single boat. Financial waste & security incompetence. I’m on @abc730 tonight on this botch up. twitter.com/albomp/status/…

Just sack him Morrison. It’s clear cut. You don’t need “advice” on such a basic question of right and wrong, unless you’re trying to find an escape route.If a cabinet minister thinks he can get away with this level of deception, he should not be a minister theguardian.com/australia-news…
Craig Emerson is right. So is Malcolm Turnbull on the unacceptability of this blatant disregard for basic transparency. If Morrison tolerates this from a Cabinet Minister, the country is on a very slippery slope. #NationalAntiCorruptionCommission twitter.com/drcraigemerson…
There you have it, directly from Murdoch’s #1 US mouthpiece, Tucker Carlson. Freely admitting he lies whenever he likes. The Fox/Sky strategy is simple: capture the right; radicalise them into the far-right. A cancer on democracy.#MurdochRoyalCommission huffpost.com/entry/tucker-c…
Here's Australia's media regulator, utterly unapologetic about their failure to monitor for COVID-19 misinformation on Australian TV by Murdoch. They hadn't even watched the offending videos! Not a problem. I'll send them our copies. And ask for a ruling. #MurdochRoyalCommission
This man was the first law officer of the Commonwealth. And his attitude to transparency is … abc.net.au/news/2021-09-1…
After only 3 months attempting to imitate Murdoch's "culture war" model on the UK equivalent of Fox and Sky, even Andrew Neil—right-wing figure & fmr long-time Murdoch associate—has had enough and resigned as chairman. #MurdochRoyalCommission theguardian.com/media/2021/sep…
Murdoch’s Gleeson hasn’t bothered asking Qlders if they’d prefer to be thrown to the wolves like in NSW. And zero reference by Gleeson to Morrison's quarantine outbreaks; his vaccine failure; aged care failure; his JobKeeper free-for-all for his mates. Hypocrite!
Surprised that the LNP pocketed cash from Morrison's JobKeeper free-for-all? Imagine the outcry had Labor done this. But it's utterly unsurprising that Murdoch still hasn't reported how much their companies profited from govt support & shutting 112 newspapers!
So here’s Murdoch’s cartoonist following the company line supporting the LNP: hoping the NSW Covid debacle spreads to Qld to make Berejiklian look better & support Morrison’s demand to lift restrictions. They can’t bear the Qld Govt working its guts out to keep Qlders safe.
Morrison on Pfizer: an essay in incompetence. Jesus wept. theguardian.com/australia-news…
2) Then I distract you with “the drums of war” on China, making inflammatory statements that actually increase the prospect of retaliation from Beijing; you’ll see how hairy-chested I am—instead of implementing the rational, coherent, hard line strategy this country needs.
Get ready for the Morrison-Murdoch 2-part “cunning plan” for re-election. 1) Borrow Boris’ UK “Freedom Day” so I, Scotty, promise to free you from State lockdown & border controls; and you forget my incompetence on quarantine & vaccines that locked you down in the first place.
Murdoch’s Liberal Protection Racket hard at work today right across the Murdoch Sunday papers. That’s 2.5 million readers. The message: 1) please forget that Berejiklean brought about 30,000 NSW infections by failing to lock down early 2) Saint Gladys will now “give you freedom”.
Murdoch’s SkyNews CEO, Boris Whittaker, had a shocker at this week’s Senate Inquiry into Covid misinformation. A news monopoly with this much to hide deserves a #MurdochRoyalCommission.
Shameless Murdoch Greenwashing. Finally worked out they destroyed their brand over climate? The same Murdoch that campaigned for Abbott to kill climate action. Then destroyed Turnbull on climate. Now expects us to airbrush the past & trust them. FFS. #MurdochRoyalCommission
Just months ago, the very smug Greg Hunt bragged about his early & continuing negotiations with Pfizer. Pigs might fly. Now we see official emails that expose the truth. Hunt should resign. Or be sacked. #HuntMustGo
As new Covid cases in NSW reach a daily record of 1,500, and a total of 30,000, the Liberals Berejiklian having caused this crisis by refusing to lock down early, now decides to cut and run and not front the daily media!It’s like Morrison running to Hawaii theguardian.com/australia-news…
This is how Murdoch in Sydney describes our state—“CRUEL QLD”. Murdoch puts this on page-1 in Sydney because, as a Liberal Party protection racket, attacking @AnnastaciaMP is easier than holding Berejiklian to account for failing to lockdown early—resulting in 28K active cases.
Here’s a useful note on the IPA. twitter.com/mrkrudd/status…
Murdoch, with a 70% monopoly, is obsessed with creating false equivalencies with the ABC...they even co-opted a dodgy IPA report to prove it. Murdoch mistakes are frequent, but corrections are rare. This time, it's clear-cut. NewsCorp must apologise. about.abc.net.au/correcting-the…
Hunt failed to do his job. Hunt failed to protect ordinary Australians by ordering enough vaccines early. Hunt is the poster child of Liberal Party arrogance and incompetence. #HuntMustGo abc.net.au/news/2021-09-0…
Memo to Morrison. The new Covid variant “Mu” has already hit the US. It’s dangerous. Given the NSW & other outbreaks occurred because you failed to set up an effective quarantine system, what is your new “national plan” to keep “Mu” out? 7news.com.au/lifestyle/heal…
For the night owls among us and for those of you wondering what Xi Jinping’s tech crackdown is all about, you might want to tune in to this @BBGNewEconomy discussion starting at midnight AEST. It follows an @AsiaSociety address I am releasing on the topic. twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1…
So there you have it folks!Morrison and Hunt dropped the ball last June securing a big early supply of Pfizer. It was Pfizer who approached Hunt.Not the other way round.And Hunt was just too busy to do the deal.For all of us. And now they blame the states! smh.com.au/politics/feder…
I agree with Turnbull and @MichaelEMann on Murdoch’s attempt to “greenwash” themselves in the lead up to the Glasgow climate conference. It’s all politics. They want to accommodate Morrison, making minor changes, but not on the big stuff that matters in the here & now. twitter.com/turnbullmalcol…
Poor Murdoch CEO Boris Whittaker can't get his story straight. I'll answer: yes, Sky News has perpetuated out-and-out COVID misinformation...Denying that there's a pandemic, ignoring the facts on masks & health orders, & fanning anti-vaccine conspiracies.
Boris Whittaker, Murdoch's CEO of Sky News, had a shocker at the Senate Inquiry yesterday. After feigning outrage at digital monopolies for being foreign companies, watch him squirm as he realises News Corp is foreign-owned. Somebody give this man a briefing.
Every time Murdoch feels cornered on an issue, they attempt to distract the debate by smearing those they disagree with. The facts? SkyNews has poisoned our democracy by lying about this pandemic, and real people are suffering because of it. theguardian.com/media/2021/sep…
My full testimony at today’s Senate Inquiry into Murdoch’s COVID misinformation. During a global pandemic, SkyNews has fanned anti-vaccine lies & pandemic-denial to millions of Australians. It’s time they & their “co-regulator” are held accountable. youtu.be/MJOaMwacoM4
Murdoch's Sky News CEO has told parliament the company's co-chair Lachlan Murdoch has "no influence" on their coverage. Funny... that's not exactly what Lachlan himself was saying a couple of years ago. We all know the truth. #MurdochRoyalCommission / MurdochRC.com
Senate Inquiry Update LIVE NOW: MurdochRC.com I’m up now, talking about Murdoch’s covid misinformation, including Sky’s fanning of anti-vaxx lies and pandemic-denial. twitter.com/MrKRudd/status…

The #MurdochRoyalCommission Senate Inquiry resumes today, examining Murdoch's promotion of pandemic denialism, anti-vaccine propaganda & far-right conspiracy theories about COVID-19. No wonder Lachlan is too cowardly to front up to scrutiny. LIVE from 9am: MurdochRC.com
Happy Father’s Day to all Australian dads today. Solidarity with all those who are single parenting, those in lockdown, those separated by borders, for whom it’s been rough. This morning my son Marcus got up early to sign my card. Ella the cat insisted on signing with him. :)
Another smear job today on ⁦@AnnastaciaMP⁩ by that drop-kick of an editor of Murdoch’s #CourierFail Chris Jones.Jones might tell us what his front page would be if Qld this morning had 31,000 cases (1,500 today alone);1000 in hospital;173 in ICU - just like they have in NSW
Oh Diddums. Poor Barnaby is worried about being bullied! About what? Science?The International Panel of Climate Change Scientists has agreed the science.Decoded what this really means is Joyce is holding out for cash so the Nationals can just be bought off theguardian.com/environment/20…
Lachlan Murdoch has such contempt for Australian institutions that he’s rejected the Senate’s invitation to examine his knowledge of SkyNews’s dangerous COVID misinformation. In fact, just as things get tough, he’s jetting back to the US. Spineless coward. theguardian.com/media/2021/sep…
I've previously warned about this coordinated political agenda shift from Murdoch & Morrison ahead of the election. Their cynical mission: blame Premiers for lockdowns caused by Morrison & Hunt failing to order vaccines & build quarantine facilities. twitter.com/mrkrudd/status…
Murdoch rolling out Morrison & Hunt’s propaganda, smearing @AnnastaciaMP—all to engineer an agenda shift for their re-election. The Premier is asking basic questions about unvaccinated children & practical details of “opening up”. Morrison should grow up & answer her questions.
Murdoch host Cory Bernardi continues to undermine vaccines by advancing the far-right conspiracy theory that dark forces are hiding the supposed real cures for COVID-19. On the same day we learned a NSW patient was hospitalised after taking ivermectin. Irresponsible & dangerous.
When Murdoch's empire lies about quack medical treatments being safer & more effective than vaccines, they're putting lives at risk. One NSW resident has already been treated for an overdose of ivermectin (a drug that SkyNews falsely says cures Covid). #MurdochRoyalCommission
You know Murdoch is frightened when they run BS personal smears like this. They used to do it to me all the time, cooking them up in the Liberals’ dirt unit—if not in-house by Murdoch’s own folks. Why: they always prefer to attack your character than have a real debate on policy.
The strategy? Distract from the facts: 1) Morrison let Covid in, refusing national quarantine; 2) Didn't order enough vaccines & barely tried; 3) Pressured NSW not to lockdown, now at 20K active cases & spreading; 4) Blames ALP states for restrictions caused by his incompetence.
Morrison cast as the freedom warrior, but no acknowledgement that lockdowns came from his failed quarantine & vaccine plans. A clear pre-election agenda shift; judging by this level of coordination with Murdoch, the poll could be sooner than we think.
Here's Murdoch faithfully executing Morrison's political strategy. @AnnastaciaMP is right to ask what will happen to unvaccinated children who are catching Delta. What's the Murdoch-Morrison answer? No answer. Just smear her reputation.
