Not banned but chased after: Got a call from Channel 7 yesterday asking if I knew someone (let’s call the person, Robin) who had been to the year 2000 S11 protests in Melbourne. Somehow, they didn’t say how, Ch 7 had tracked Robin down because they claimed this was the only Brisbane person who had been arrested and processed through the courts at S11 (big assumption by Ch 7 that Robin was the only one).
Channel 7 was desperate to talk with Robin (go figure?!).
Before I could ask why, the journo said “Well, for obvious reasons!” I don’t think so Ch 7.
Stay loose, stay free, Robin, wherever you are.
Meanwhile Clive Palmer says G20 is a good place for rational discussion, oh yeah. The 1% need the G20 frenzy, it seems. I hope the refugee advocates don’t get sucked in by Palmer, he is a liar and exploiter. Stay solid, people – keep a clean nose and watch out for plain clothes.
