Re Notre Dame, worth reading Edward Hollis’ essay on its 1860s restoration (in ‘The Secret Lives of Buildings’). The project was driven by Hugo and our need for the ballast of history in tumultuous times. Seems almost fitting that another restoration would be needed now.

@TheMurdochTimes @PatsKarvelas @Scottludlam We could debate whether Assange is a journalist or not, but even if he is, that is not what he's been charged with in the US, its immaterial to him skipping bail in the UK and utterly irrelevant to any rape charge he may face in Sweden.

@matt_levinson @GreenJ There is a huge accountability deficit in politics today. Entrenched partisanship means politicians govern in the interests of a single group and don't care about being found by the media to lie or dissemble. I don't know what the answer is.

Andrew Beatty

@matt_levinson @GreenJ Really interesting questions. Ideally polls are good enough to inform policy decisions. Agree we need more participatory democracy and effective means of consultation. We can't have elections once every blue moon being a blank cheque with little accountability in the interim.
