Great to see NSW commit to halving rough sleeping by 2025. has signed the joint agreement. Looking forward to working with NSW Gov, City of Sydney & all those committed to ending homelessness so people have a stable home & wraparound supports.

It’s important, every Christmas, to take a moment to think about how completely bonkers this method of conducting a census is.

So true Jo. I was always reminded of this rocking up to the pub after a day wrangling over the latest policy announcement and my friends would literally have no clue what I was talking about. And probably zero interest either 😂

I had some poor fellow being formally disciplined next to me in a cafe today. It was excruciating but I could. not. stop. listening. Who does that in a public area? Surely that’s a big disciplinary no-no 🤷‍♀️

Oh my word. And she was on her third pregnancy AND a midwife. Can you even imagine the experience for Aboriginal women without those ‘advantages’. Thanks for sharing.

This is terrifying. Religious beliefs should never be used as a reason to discriminate against children. Or anyone for that matter.

We called it knock down ginger...I have no idea why. But I can imagine such a name may have been culturally inappropriate in NI 🤣

I remember working on the Glasgow NE by-election and, my word, that was a steep learning curve. Different times but I’d never seen such enthusiasm for a candidate and Labour in general while door knocking.

This comment is particularly jarring when you consider the Govt literally stopped the House from working when it had its leadership crisis.

I lived in a pretty dodgy part of London and my male housemate thought it stupid to show off my phone when walking home. But I wasn’t scared of someone stealing my phone, I could replace that in an instant. It was what I couldn’t replace that I was trying to protect.
