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.
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.
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.
