Tony Abbott’s popularity has surged and the Coalition has also gained support – but Labor would still probably win if we voted tomorrow.

Re leaks and attacks on Govt (Abbott) a LOT from Twitter, I looked up ownership of Twitter & surprise, a major Russian VC who has massively gained 2 boots in the sector in a short time is very powerful. Billionaire in 2 yrs. Other countries getting big fingers in big pies. Internet, this stuff (I-phone fun) etc.
One name was Mr Milner (Uri) and to me (a no one) was very interesting - to others maybe not.
But guys like these, especially Uri, could use Twitter etc to destabilise Governments should they wish to. Sorry this is total rubbish - too many novels of a type.
I thought some of this when noticed a 10 hr time difference with someone else's tweet and mine during our brief exchange. The other person used pseudonym. Night
