Fair Work Australia is a joke


Unbelievable. Something and a half to wake up to…

FAIR Work Australia’s three-year investigation into alleged criminal conduct by Labor MP Craig Thomson collapsed yesterday when the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions, Chris Craigie SC, said FWA’s report was useless for the purpose of levelling possible charges.

Only a day after FWA general manager Bernadette O’Neill announced the 1100-page report on the Health Services Union had been referred to the CDPP, Mr Craigie issued a statement saying it did not constitute a brief of evidence. The move means that FWA, which under Ms O’Neill has refused to co-operate with NSW and Victorian police investigating Mr Thomson, has achieved no result in terms of advancing any possible criminal prosecution, despite years of work and millions of dollars of public expenditure.

Wow. Just, wow.

Andrew Bolt asks, “What fresh hell greets Gillard today?”

Well, there’s the above. There’s the destruction of the Aussie Building and Construction Commission* which of course would have nothing to do with the spectacular face-plant that was the BER.

Tony Abbott may as well go on vacation.

I thought Fabian Socialism – of which our PM is an adherent – was meant to incrementally change Australia over decades, not destroy the Labor Party, her party, in mere months.

UPDATE

Regarding the FWA/Craig Thompson farce, Tony Abbott describes it as “an obstruction of justice orchestrated by friends of the current government”.

*The old ABCC’s job’s to be done by… union hacks Fair Work Australia now. Hmm, I remeber my BER mole stating that his/her company had sent compalints about the unions to the ABCC. I wonder if they were ever investigated properly before a desperate PM in damage control dismantled the one real avenue for recourse builders had.

UPDATE II

Na, na, FWA is independent, says Juliar.

That woman has no shame. I almost feel sorry what this apparently really nice person is doing to herself.

    The whole shagger thompson case has become a political joke administered by alpoid corruptocrats who have the sole purpose of keeping the 3 ring circus in power.

    Sweet cheeses on a stick Oz parliament is screwed.

    An utter disgrace, a farce, outrageous. Plus a whole bunch of other descriptivism’s.

    The police need to act as a matter of urgency and storm the offices of FWA, ALP MP’s, Parliament, Unions and anyone else it feels may be complicit in this cover-up and crimes committed.

    The Gillard government and her cronies make, Kim Jong Un, look good. And that is no joke!

    This is the link to the case from the BER program you are looking for;

    http://www.abcc.gov.au/Mediaandnewscentre/Latestnewsandmedia/Documents/20111222%20MS%20Union%20penalised%2026k%20for%20officials%20behaviour%20at%20building%20sites%20in%20Melbournes%20South-East.pdf

    My spies tell me the best outcome of this case is not so much the piss poor penalty given but that the union organiser was due to take a position on the building disputes resolution board (a union stacked government panel), however with a conviction under s500 of the act this is not possible.

    Suffer in your jocks fergal you toerag.

    • Good stuff!

    Reminiscing is such fun… (please read all the links in order)

    Fascinating reading. Interesting, the article cites back to 1984, yet misses out on the strange going’s on in the 1990’s. Let’s play join the dots.
    (Note: this is also posted at Bolta’s; but is likely to go to the memory hole depending on who is moderating today)

    The honourable Andrew Bolt, may like to revisit some old articles.
    (see the citing from 2007 linked to in the above)

    Is Julia Gillard hiding or protecting? And why? A reasonable question, I would have thought.

    Although, Andrew and his boss, may expect another visit from Gillard if he dares. Remember, some commentators lost their jobs for talking about this last time; Milne on “Insiders” and Mike Smith from “2UE”.

    If this was John Howard, 4Corners would have an incredible story airing tomorrow night!

    • With fresh hot steamy hell served daily by this government, who else had kind of forgotten about Julia and her AWU boyfriend’s swindling?

        I haven’t and I want to know where is Bruce Wilson hiding and I would like to hear his version of all that happened in that area, because now we have seen Julia in action [so to speak], feel that there is a lot to that story we have NOT heard.

        Yes I know he is a con artist, but something still doesn’t stack up. Those bank accounts for a starter.
