    I’ll start the ball rolling, when the media start to take the blame for Julia’s comments then Australia is in big trouble, this is way over the top and a complete sham, enough already, let Julia wear the blame for her own comments, after all she wanted this job and she has to learn to take the good with the bad.

    • And remember when she started and Bolta was lauding her praises, and some of us were trying to tell him theress a bad apple here…

    I am disgusted! The teacher’s on strike today are a disgrace to their profession. They are being used like puppets by a Communist Union to make a political point. Teachers are supposed to be intelligent but I have to ask; how smart are they, being so easily led like sheep to the slaughter? They’re not very intelligent; in my opinion.

    The teacher’s have lost my respect today when they voted to punish the parent’s and children at their schools to further their own political cause. If teachers don’t provide individual school reports to parents, what is the point of schooling? How will this action help the children they are teaching?

    Wearing Red shirts like all good communists, Mao would be proud; teacher’s and staff met en masse and marched in the streets in Melbourne to make their demands and to make a point. A point not about teaching, but one of a political nature to show they don’t like Liberal government. Across the Nation, the ALP is dying. The ALP has now mobilised its Union forces to do its heavy lifting and the naive have responded in all their unthinking glory. The sheeple have spoken. The CFMEU are doing the same with the Grocon dispute. Although, no one really knows what their demands are apart from making, illegal by law, disruptions. But that’s another story; as is the AWU, HSU and CEPU mismanagement of Union membership funds. Gillard and Shorten are embarking on a campaign to make the Unions relevant again after decades of decline. The common cause seems to be give power to the Unions, above all else.

    According to AEU, across the board pay rises of 7.5%, plus bonuses of up to 10% for good performers, apparently isn’t good enough in these tough economic times. The bad times brought on by bad ALP government’s incompetence at both State and Federal level. Add to this, ridiculous promises made by Victorian Premier, Ted Baillieu, who set himself up for failure. No wonder they call him, “Red Ted”; what an idiot. And where is Ted today? He is nowhere to be seen; as usual.

    The ALP and their Union mates are now running scared; using the “young and naive” to fight their battles in the hope the people will forgive their moral failure. It is time to stand up and hold them all to account. There is only one way to achieve this, do not cave-in to the Union’s demands and call for a Royal Commission into the Union movement to outlaw their immoral and unlawful behaviour.

    The same tactics used on the GROCON site in Melbourne are being tried on other sites in Melb, to my knowlege in 2 jobs in Brighton and one at Maroondah.
