  • I can't believe Centrebet are offering $3.10 for Romney to win, and $1.36 for Obama. Have they (or Aussie punters?) not seen the polls? #

  • @mtk777 Hi Ryan, I was asleep, getting ready for an 11pm start at work. It's about time Slipper stood down. Glad he chose to do so. in reply to mtk777 #
  • @mtk777 It does bother me that the vote to force Slipper out failed, but at least he (finally) realised his position was untenable. in reply to mtk777 #

  • You are damaging your hearing if I can hear your headphones from across the road with nearby traffic. #
  • Good polls today for conservatives. Aus: Liberal/National coalition leads Labor 45-33 in Newspoll. US: Pew has Romney leading Obama 49-45. #
  • RT @Mel_TurnerAU: @morrison954 Don't fall for the hi speed rail link. It's been peddled for 10 yrs, usually when ACT local elections are on! #
  • @Mel_TurnerAU @morrison954 And in this election, there is even a "Bullet Train For Canberra Party". Not kidding, sadly. in reply to Mel_TurnerAU #
  • @Mel_TurnerAU @morrison954 I'm pre polling later this week. I don't mind voting on the day, but alas I'll be busy. Have fun! in reply to Mel_TurnerAU #
  • Julia Gillard's message this morning: you'd fall asleep before you figure out she's supporting Katy Gallagher. Listen if you need a nap. #
  • The rain has arrived, at last ( @weatherzone in Reid, ACT) so that settles it, I'm getting a couple hours of sleep before work at 11pm. #
  • @jewelsparkle3 @weatherzone Good idea. @daniel_prime7 Can you send some rain to @jewelsparkle3 please? in reply to jewelsparkle3 #
  • Oh wow. I go to bed for a while and wake up to find disgraced Speaker Peter Slipper has resigned. At least he saw the need when Labor didn't #

  • One appears to be in today's Canberra Times supporting Molongolo Liberal candidate Elizabeth Lee Me buying the CT – odd #

  • Enjoying the Chris Mainwaring AFL Legends match on 7mate. The mascot race and umpires running backwards races at half time were fun. #
  • Good to see @6pr's Howard Sattler up and about as a goal umpire at the Chris Mainwaring match. His stroke recovery must be going well. #
  • RT @FranksterAV MRN reports all advertising has been pulled from The Alan Jones Breakfast Show. Ad-free for a lil while. #
  • Alan Jones Show without ads will be odd. I wonder what the networked highlights show will do? Just not more of Alan's favourite music please #

  • It seems Romney did even better than I thought he would against Obama in the debate. Good! Next, Ryan can do the same to Vice Moron Biden. #
  • @AdamBandt Oh Adam, surely if your dog had to choose between Romney's roof and Obama's oven, it'd choose the roof. in reply to AdamBandt #
  • @bernymcatlady Yes, the dog had the runs so was safely placed in a kennel on top of the car. Better than the dog which Obama ate. in reply to bernymcatlady #
  • RT @newsbusters: MSNBC Hosts Stunned at Lackluster Obama Debate Performance – Ed Schultz: "big problem for President"โ€ #
  • RT @abcnewsACT: @CanberraLibs promise to cut red tape for city's clubs #
  • Wow! RT @toddstarnes: RT @KatMcKinley: Wow!! CNN Poll Mitt goes 67% Obama goes 25 % !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! #
  • Obviously there is still a long way to go, but in a close race like this one, debate performances like that one are important for Romney. #
  • And now that I've retweeted half my Twitter feed, my phone can go back on my backpack. #
  • RT @MajoratNJ: Here's something we know for sure #debate2012 changed: Romney supporters have sudden, new-found trust in media polls. #
  • @MajoratNJ No, most polls are still skewed towards Obama, but if they favour Obama and Romney still leads them, he has a BIG lead. in reply to MajoratNJ #
  • @thejohnburgess At least the incomprehensible instructions might actually match the product now. in reply to thejohnburgess #

  • I'm never sure if it's trust or absent-mindedness when a store owner leaves their store, leaving me, a customer, in it alone. #
  • In Braddon I'm noticing a lot of Katy Gallagher's pamphlets in letter boxes starting "Dear Gungahlin Resident". Braddon is not in Gungahlin. #
  • A photo of one of @KatyGMLA's "Dear Gungahlin Residents" pamphlets in a letterbox on Donaldson St, Braddon. #
  • @mtk777 The point of distributing pamphlets is to send a message of competence. The wrong ones going to a whole suburb does not do this. in reply to mtk777 #
  • @mtk777 I agree that there are bigger things to criticise them for, but one expects a government to be able to organise things well. in reply to mtk777 #
  • @Canberra_Labor Good luck getting to the bottom of it. I'd demand a refund or a free delivery of the correct material if I was you. in reply to Canberra_Labor #
  • For the benefit of my Twitter feeds which don't carry retweets properly ACT Labor say they're investigating how paid deliverers got it wrong #
  • @Canberra_Labor Btw, I'll update my blog post with your response as soon as I get home. in reply to Canberra_Labor #
  • @Canberra_Labor All done. By the way, upon checking my letterbox in Reid, same thing I'm afraid. Have a good evening. in reply to Canberra_Labor #
  • @mtk777 I do hope to hear about the outcome of their investigation. And I will give them credit for responding to me, given my allegiances. in reply to mtk777 #

  • Should have happened ages ago. RT @2GBNews Just in: The Reserve Bank Board has decided to lower the cash rate by 0.25% to 3.25%. #
  • Re: interest rate cut. If it had been done months ago, I think it would have helped and rates could now be 3.5% again. Now might be too late #

  • I know it's still three weeks away, but my gut feeling on the ACT Election is LIB 9, LAB 7, GRN 1. Maybe 10-6-1, but not predicting it yet. #
  • As I walk around Reid this morning, I'm enjoying the lovely scent of wood fires. Very happy that @CanberraLibs have promised to unban them. #
  • @coffeyn But Albanese IS doing something worthwhile by boycotting Alan Jones' show. Giving us all sweet relief from the sound of his voice. in reply to coffeyn #
  • @rglover702 Hadley (live) and Jones (highlights) consistently rate #1 in 9am-12pm in Canberra. Does well elsewhere too. Pollies can't ignore in reply to rglover702 #
  • @rglover702 Agree that being scared of one broadcaster is silly, but to think part of their audience can't be won over is political suicide. in reply to rglover702 #
  • @AlboMP Boycotting AJ show robs you of an audience. No matter how staunch, some can always be convinced. Appearing does not mean agreeing. in reply to AlboMP #
  • @rglover702 True, and in Canberra at least Jones does reach a lot as opposed to just TSL. You're right that there are bigger audiences… in reply to rglover702 #
  • @rglover702 …but is it wise to write off any presenter's audience? Talk in particular attracts a lot of people who disagree with the host. in reply to rglover702 #
  • @coffeyn well it's their loss. Regardless of the host, the audience is always the prize, and it can always be won to some extent. in reply to coffeyn #
  • @zozstar That's right. Every time there's one of these boycotts, many others want a part of the controversy-induced larger audience. in reply to zozstar #
  • The Australian government is so fast and efficient. It's October, and they've only just sent me a notice about something they did on July 11 #
  • @Lisa_Wilkinson @vanonselenp @bandannawriter On 2UE this morning, @morrison954 said "that topic isn't banned here". Thought that was why. in reply to Lisa_Wilkinson #
  • I guarantee that any politician who has been on Alan Jones' show and is now boycotting it, will want to go on again come election time. #
  • Next Kochie'll be commentating AFL on 7 RT @Peter_Mitchell7: Seven's Sunrise host David Koch is set to become Port Adelaide's new President. #

  • @Trephinator I didn't notice that. Nice pick up. It's like Seven Melbourne constantly putting Amy Parks outside AAMI Park. in reply to Trephinator #
  • Nearly NRL Grand Final time. Go @NRL_Bulldogs!! Can't wait to watch while listening to Andrew Moore, Joel Caine and Steve Roach on @2GB873 #
  • Congratulations @MelbStormRLC 2012 NRL Premiers 14-4. Commiserations to my beloved @NRL_Bulldogs. #
  • @PatrickHoughto1 And the singer hired by the NRL was better than the singer hired by the AFL. AFL should have stuck with taped Julie Anthony in reply to PatrickHoughto1 #
  • About Alan Jones' comments. I believe his explanation, but it doesn't excuse the comments. On this, I'm disappointed with him. #
  • I should point out that I can disagree with someone on something without disagreeing with them on everything. I still like Jones' politics. #
  • If I was Alan Jones, I would be using my 7am & 8am editorials tomorrow to PROPERLY apologise to Julia Gillard, not repeat today's nonsense. #

  • @trevorlong Hey Trevor. Can I say a big thank you to you and SBS for bringing @talkSPORT's Premier League coverage to Aussie radio. in reply to trevorlong #
  • Michael Savage is off the air after winning a legal battle to get out of a restrictive contract. 400 stations affected. #
  • I wonder what TRN and radio stations will fill Michael Savage's timeslot with? I'm hoping @marklevinshow gains stations. #
  • Can't wait for the AFL Grand Final to start. Can't wait for Rex Hunt & Sandy Roberts to call it on AFL Live @talkthetolldown. Go Hawks! #
  • @morrison954 qwertyuiop mnbvcxz!?,. in reply to morrison954 #
  • The only thing I hate about grand finals is the music at half time. Thank goodness Peter Donegan is talking on AFL Live @talkthetolldown #
  • โ€œ@talkthetolldown: 'They've got to take risks and they're doing it'-Rex Huntโ€ Yep, and now the Hawks lead by four points late in the 3rd. #
  • @writerwood If it's still acting up, try they're taking AFL Live and left their stream on. in reply to writerwood #
  • Wowee! Big crowd. RT @theheraldsun: The official attendance at today's #AFLGF is 99,683 #
  • @writerwood Pleasure ๐Ÿ™‚ in reply to writerwood #
  • Swans by 10. Hawks' coach Alistair Clarkson looks like he's going to cry. Seconds left. #
  • Sydney are 2012 AFL premiers. 14.7.(91) over Hawthorn 11.15.(81). Congratulations Sydney. Disappointing end for Hawthorn. #
  • @talkthetolldown Thanks for a great call of the grand final, and great coverage all year. Hope Rex catches lots of fish in the off-season ๐Ÿ™‚ #
  • @Matt_Info Hi Matt, in the article I believe "five minute delay" should read "five second delay". in reply to Matt_Info #
  • RT @Matt_Info: Car Jacking suspect commits suicide Live on Fox News with Shepard Smith (video) 9-28-2012 #
  • 757,000 people have watched the unedited video of @FoxNews showing the suicide. Given the interest, one wonders if the error was that bad. #
  • In the same situation, in that timeslot, I would have opted to cut away, but in a later timeslot, I might have let it run. #
  • As someone who works in live television, I do accept @foxnews "human error" explanation. Perhaps in future, replace 5 sec delay with 15 sec. #

  • Watching the 2005 AFL Grand Final on 7mate and just heard @TimGossage providing an injury report. Nice to hear that voice on TV. #
  • I was on a 10am – 2pm news shift on 2005 Grand Final day. Muted TV and listened to @3AWisfootball radio with Rex Hunt & Clinton Grybas #
  • @AHHA_Thin_Edge Thanks for following. I'm in a unit with electric heating, but I fully support people's right to have wood fire heating. #
  • A job title called "Head Newsgathering"? Goodly Englishings! RT @tvtonightau: New appointments as ABC News restructures #
  • @abcmarkscott Re: News restructure. Perhaps job title "Head Newsgathering" should have "of" in it. The English language will thank you. #
  • @5122oiMyra 1. You're wrong: I am employed. 2. You're not Google. The use of their logo in your avatar is deception. in reply to 5122oiMyra #
  • @PRIME7CanNews Good luck with the Bub Renee. Hope it brings you lots and lots and lots of joy and happiness. in reply to PRIME7CanNews #
  • RT @SteveTurner84: Looking forward to joining Andrew, Blockie & @JoelCaine 2nite on the @NRLgameplan. Hope the @LateMailMan is on time!!! #
  • Pebbles and Nattie playing ball #
  • The @2GB873 webstream is almost silent. Just a bit of low-level hum. Has a weather-related power issue taken "the power station" off air? #
  • I see, thanks Randall ๐Ÿ™‚ RT @randallgill: @Samuel_SGS think theyโ€™re ( @2GB873) discussing a subject that canโ€™t be broadcast into Victoria. #
  • @NRLgameplan Your 40/20 has inspired me. I'd love to see a high scoring grand final. Go @NRL_Bulldogs 40-20 over the Storm! #TGPNRL #
