Are the unions copying Australia?

In Australia the unions have got hold of about 70% of cabinet, so have been as happy as pigs in shit. Unfortunately the pigs didn’t realise that they can get caught doing dodgy stuff, and if it is too dodgy they will get busted.

The Building industry is rife with problems, with the unions intimidating anyone they think they can, all in the name of “a fair workplace”.

This is what Julia Gillard said to the ACTU conference in 2009.

“Like me, I am sure you were appalled to read of dangerous car chases across Melbourne City involving carloads of balaclava wearing people, criminal damage to vehicles resulting in arrests, threats of physical violence and intimidation of individuals, including damage to a private residence….”

Not that she ever did anything about it.

Since breaking the ports story the flood of information about union intimidation. Enough to make me think we need a public body to investigate unions.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
