So, we have these mysterious op shop cabinet appearances full of, you know, highly sensitive government files...
On Wednesday morning, I, like many, saw an ABC tweet about what I thought was ” Groundhog Day”, pink batts style.
Allegedly, ”new” revelations had come, supposedly, from the #CabinetFiles.
This raised so many questions, such as:
- Who did this?
- What was their motive?
- Did I erase that USB, hidden in 2013 behind my half eaten vegemite and cheese sanga?
It's 2018 and satire writes itself
If this was not so serious, it would be funny — hilarious even? But we all know there are underTones of political discombobulation with the way this government is falling to pieces.
They have no Credlin left and as long as the crime or "thing” was committed over four years ago, it seems to be OK with our TopHat.
Morrison, Dutton or Turnbull: Who is the cruellest minister of them all? As long as any heinous crimes were committed over 4 years ago, it’s no longer an issue says PM. https://t.co/YigIePf6Wm … @IndependentAus #TheCabinetFiles #auspol— Michelle Pini (@vmp9) January 31, 2018
Will we now see legal proceedings against Scott Morrison begin after this revelation from #CabinetFiles?
Now, back to Kevin and "our" ABC.
Kevin Rudd is suing the ABC
Here’s my statement on the ABC report on the Home Insulation Program. Abbott's own Royal Commission on HIP made no findings against me. In fact it found that when I was PM, “there was no warning given of the very many problems with the program.” (p.271) https://t.co/Kux0I7AyZg pic.twitter.com/UP6fcGic5F— Kevin Rudd (@MrKRudd) January 31, 2018
To which the ABC tweeted 13 minutes later...
Some say the motivations are unclear
The #CabinetFiles is the stereotypical Australian mainstream media scoop, because it involved documents mysteriously falling into journalists' hands from unknown sources whose motivations are unclear.— Dave Donovan (@davrosz) January 31, 2018
It began here with the ABC
People's Twitter feeds were filling faster than Lib politicians travel chits.
Now that legal proceedings are pending, skirting around #CabinetFiles makes one wonder how much more will come out.

State Coroner Michael Barnes on Thursday referred supervisors and employers of the three tradesmen, who were electrocuted while installing home insulation under the axed federal government scheme, to the Director of Public Prosecutions
I believe the leak will turn into a stream (mill), which will turn into a creek (Up Shit), then into the river of Lookovathere, flowing down into the Gulf of Misinformation and out to the Discombobulation Sea.

why is my twitter full of fking roof insulation deaths - why are these deaths treated differently from m/any other workplace deaths..... why is the workplace deaths of workforthedole slave labour not treated wth the same reverence? this is appalling politicising deaths— TurnLeft (@TurnLeft_2018) January 30, 2018
ABC might be in trouble over its pink batts reporting. Kevin Rudd is right about the pink batts royal commission: it found he was not warned of safety risks. Source: Commission report, p. 271. pic.twitter.com/ELw5oZYZKg— Ben Eltham (@beneltham) February 1, 2018

It seems ASIO just dropped off a safe, then left. ABC say they still have access to the documents and the safe is "within the ABC premises" in Parliament House. So the #CabinetFiles haven't been confiscated, just put in a different container? https://t.co/sMwgjAz6YR— Josh Butler (@JoshButler) January 31, 2018
