I very nearly said “wallaby is good eatin” while on 2GB radio as they crossed to me for my bit on the NDIS. But I didn’t and I think this shows personal growth.
The $22bn NDIS routinely refuses to fund accommodation for disabled people stuck in hospitals, arguing they are in "rehab" phase. We are aware of at least 10 cases we can confirm.  http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/health/ndis-abandons-disabled-to-state-hospitals/news-story/4cd8b753212c4a5f401638e8a4a2ab85  https://t.co/auAjx40PVG
Just waved to a baby barely able to walk in this cafe and he bolted out the door and toward the road. Not taking it personally.
