Union pays for closing offshore door – ExecutiveCareer

Union pays for closing offshore door – ExecutiveCareer.

Should be paying a lot more … for heaven’s sake, the couple did the training and applied to join the union, so why did the union think they could get away with not letting them join?

I don’t think I really want to know the answer to that question.

EVERY time there is a scandal involving the sports elite,
political or business elite the ‘big fish’ tend to get
protected more often than not.
How many times has it happened? Offset Alpine fire,
HIH scandal (both involving ALP-aligned identities mainly),
AWU/CFMEU/TWU etc scandals, the AFL injections controversy
etc etc.
EVERY single time it is a case of ‘shoot the messenger’ and
look for fall guys. In some cases it’s ‘you’re a misogynist’.
Hence Adler only gets jailed after HIH collapses & NO ONE
in the Alpine fraud is ever brought to account, union officials
virtually NEVER end up charged, let alone put behind
bars except for odd one like Michael Williamson.
Gillard will NEVER be charged – think that’s obvious when
she had her house renovated from tainted funds from
AWU-WRA she herself set up and knew all about.
James Hird is the last man standing in Essendon injections
saga and players reckon they don’t know what was injected
into them. You’d think after THOUSANDS of injections someone
would have asked questions or knew what was on the label
and followed it up. 34 players and all, not to mention
scores of club officials directly involved.
EVERY single time, there’s an effective cover-up via sections
of complaint media and legal eagles and then in the end
the perpetrator says ‘where is the evidence’ and behaves
like they themselves are the victims.
You see careers destroyed – good journalists, unionists,
Essendon club staffers who are more junior than Hird,
or anyone who acts in their own good conscience on either
don’t want part of the skulduggery or blow the whistle.

 

The bit I have bolded is what I have wondered. If so many blokes were injected so often, how come not one of them ever questioned what was happening? Did they think they were getting freebie street drugs? Or could they not read the labels? Either way, it points out that a lot of young blokes were stupid … or there is one hell of a beat up. Surely in that number of young, fit blokes at least some of them would buck the system. Or do the footy codes recruit sheep?

Billy Gordon denies domestic violence allegations, vows to remain in Queensland Parliament – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Billy Gordon denies domestic violence allegations, vows to remain in Queensland Parliament – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation).

A Labor back bencher is staying put despite being investigated on claims of violence … at the very least he should stand down until the matter is cleared up.

Kevin Rudd, the Labor machine and Billy Gordon – Michael Smith News

When you hear Billy Gordon speak, you realise he is quite articulate. He’s not an illiterate Aboriginal straight from up country going to the ‘big smoke’ who is uneducated as to the laws of the land.

He lists his skills on Linkedin as

Community Relations, Grassroots Outreach, Youth Advocacy, Youth Engagement, Program Management, Strategy, Community Engagement, Stakeholder Engagement, Workshop Facilitation, Organizational…, Public Speaking, Non-profits, Strategic Planning, Leadership Development, English, Community Development, Public Relations, Policy, Government, Coaching, Nonprofits, Management

As a mature person in his thirties, he would have been aware that it was a criminal offence to drive while unlicensed (2008 offence), to physically abuse your partner (2006). He would have been aware that he was required to pay Child Support to his two children from a relationship that broke down in 2006; he held down well paid jobs so he could afford to make the payments.

Billy Gordon chose to break the law and ignore his obligations to his two children. He never divulged his past to the voters in the Cook electorate; he told the ALP who kept it quite for good reason.

Billy Gordon –
Project Manager
Balkanu Cape York Development Corporation
August 2007 – March 2008 (8 months)Cairns

Project Officer
Queensland Department of Communities
May 2008 – September 2011 (3 years 5 months)Mount Isa

Community Development Manager
Skytrans
September 2011 – April 2013 (1 year 8 months)Cairns Area, Australia

Candidate for the Federal Seat of Leichhardt
Australian Labor Party
February 2013 – September 2013 (8 months)far north qld

Principal
The Gordon Group
2011 – Present (4 years)Cairns, Queensland
Consultant, Facilitation services – youth & community engagement / participation.

Electorate Officer
Office of Senator Jan McLucas
October 2013 – Present (1 year 7 months)Cairns Area, Australia

 

I see a long list of positions, but I don’t see anything like a productive job. Even Bruce Wilson now has a job producing burgers on demand.

‘morning all.

Interesting that we seem to have discovered another Gillian Triggs? Wonder how many more of them will crawl out of the woodwork?

And my bet is that they are all females who have put work above family, and have not got an empathatic bone in their body.

Stone-age barbarian among us – guilty of procuring his 12 year old daughter for sex during Islamic ‘marriage’ – Michael Smith News

Stone-age barbarian among us – guilty of procuring his 12 year old daughter for sex during Islamic ‘marriage’ – Michael Smith News.

Why was he allowed to go home home until May … he should be behind bars waiting to be sentenced, and preferably in a goal where there are violent prisoners who don’t like rock spiders.
