Managing editor David Donovan introduces Independent Australia’s first Open thread. Make a comment on any topic; share your news and stories, suggest a topic for IA to cover or even ask us a question.
There’s been a lot happening over the last 24 hours: Kathy Jackson gets dumped and charged
by the HSU; Tony Abbott has been licking his wounds after his latest mauling
at the hands of Australia’s formidable female broadcasters; and part-time Liberal Party strategist – and full-time dinosaur – Grahame Morris comes to his defence by calling ABC interviewer Leigh Sales a “cow”
; how ineffably witty, what? Of course, Morris is the same silly mungbean who called for Julia Gillard to be kicked to death
back in late April; I wonder, can you see a pattern in there somewhere? Hmmm...
Anyway, by popular demand – that is, someone suggested it to me on Twitter (thanks @CuppaT2
!) – I am opening up this thread for general comments about anything at all from our most erudite group of commenters (HB, MS, OJ et al). Oh yeah, nearly forgot, if you want to ask me any questions about IA or anything else, please feel free.
(Don’t forget, you need to register with IA
to comment, but this literally only takes a few seconds.)
Over to you…
