- But happy to send troops overseas to fight a terrorist organisation in a completely inappropriate and ineffective way
- Cutting our international aid budget
- Sending refugees to their death and torturing them in inhumane conditions, even children, in the meantime
- Significantly defunding women’s shelters
- Cutting welfare payments
- Making himself Minister for Women
- Cutting community television entirely (vale, Channel 31)
- Cutting funding to the ABC (and Triple J)
- Cutting funding to Indigenous services for the Indigenous community
- No word on constitutional recognition, let alone a treaty
- Dumping dredge spoil in the Great Barrier Reef (who needs it)

Depressing day.

Vale, Gough.

Had the most amazing night last night. Incredible performance with incredible people. I was on the cover of the program, SDC dancers gave us roses, supported by family and friends and I was so happy on stage.
I’ve never been surer that this it what I need to do with my life.

Anonymous said : Is there a story behind your blog name "Petite Mort"? From my very basic knowledge I'm guessing it says something along the lines of "little death". 

Yeah, basically it’s just the name of one of my favourite contemporary dance works by Jiri Kylian but I’ve also heard people use the phrase to refer to orgasms so idk, I like both those things.
