Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



A narrow miss today on another Malcolm Turnbull approved unsafe building site

The CFMEU shut down this site yesterday. Worksafe allowed it to continue today. Now, the whole thing has collapsed, nearly hitting a lady walking by with her pram, and spewing asbestos dust into the area. There was no water to control dust before the collapse, and there certainly is not now. Have a listen to what CFMEU Vic-Tas secretary John Setka has to say compared with the representative from Sustainable Demolition.

Meanwhile, we’re headed to a double dissolution over the ABCC. The government are saying that the ABCC is needed to help saftey, jobs and the industry. That is utter bullshit. there is no other way to put it. You can read more about why that’s true here.

Share this one around, it’s important.

Here is the Channel 9 news report.

The question that should be asked is ‘Who benefits?”

The unions are making an issue out of workplace safety, and a wall mysteriously topples over.

No doubt the union is behind the wall collapse. They are probably disappointed they didn’t kill the woman and her baby so they would get more press.

There have been some pretty stupid comments on my blog posts in the post but this piece of total crap takes the cake. Tim or Timmy’s (or whatever their real name is) outrageous lies show the sort of gutter level anti-union forces in Australia have sunk to. I note too that Tim has used a made up hotmail account to post here.
