I'm lost for words. One of my team rang to comfort the wife of who died on yesterday only to discover she was the one breaking the news of his death to her. Dept had not rang her to let her know her husband had died. I'm lost for words.

It's just utterly disgusting what Deanne has been subjected to simply because she spoke for a few minutes on TV about how to model a culture of consent from the very start of life. This is a great piece from her. Everyone piling on should feel ashamed.

I’m so saddened by this. She was such a beautiful person, inside and out. She was a uncommon thing in politics really, in that so many people loved her and so few (likely fools) had a bad word to say. That’s unbelievably rare. What a bloody massive loss.

I’m surprised there hasn’t been more votes for Sydney as the place is crawling with ex pats. I’ve been here 6 years. It’s a very easy move...culturally v similar, work opportunities, obvs no language barrier and the weather is fairly dreamy. It’s just a bloody long way!

The tampon tax is an unfair tax on women. That’s why we are getting rid of it.
