11:30 though I do wonder whether a non-government figure doing a media event every day around the same time is really newsworthy. #auspol #

19:29 @Wallywalta regardless, Ticehurst would need to prove that he would definitely have won the election. That's a big and arrogant call #auspol #
19:04 @Wallywalta if Thomson hadn't been preselected another Labor person would be. How can Ticehurst sue for losing a legit election? Stunt. #
