Could you get a more "Australian government in 2019" story than a public servant sacked because his disability meant he couldn't monster enough welfare recipients with trumped-up debts?

If you're a fan of Nick Cave, Mark Mordue and the Ovens Valley (or at least one of the above) this is the Monday read for you. It's a long excerpt from Mark Mordue's massive work-in-progress on Nick Cave, and it's devoted to his boyhood in Wangaratta.

👇 worth reading this thread from the top — but this tweet stands out. 🤥 has convinced most (but not all) journalists that plans to reduce emissions. policy analysts around the world know this is a lie.

Ten, another message that Australia pushed hard is that it will easily meet its targets. Such factually wrong statement coming from the Prime Minister in a high profile way is damaging Australia’s credibility. Countries are not fools and can add the numbers up.
