    We could always throw more money at the problem so dopes like you can have a job.

    Ahh more deflection and obfuscation,

    I suppose the child abuse royal commission was just as unnecessary, because none of us have been particularly surprised by the results?

    I mean who'd a thought that there were a heap of priests out there that were kiddy fiddlers and that the various churches concerned had covered up and denied these behaviours for years?

    Which of the revelations from that particular RC has surprised you most mate?

    What does this even mean?

    Any chance you would care to articulate an actual argument?

    I didn't see anyone question that RC at all. And you accuse other people of deflecting......

    Don't worry people, there's no big revelations, it's okay to commit crimes if you set it as company policy. Rip me off and charge me when I'm dead.

    That's the whole point mate.

    It's telling that you avoided the actual question though.

    Perhaps you felt defending the obvious flaw in your previous statement wasn't quite worthwhile..................

    And union leaders who are parachuted in without ever having done a day's work. How the f**k do you pretend to represent thousands of workers when you have never done any of those jobs yourself. People would be a lot less cynical if leaders were elected from the shop floor through to the executive. Instead we see people to whom union leadership is nothing more than a step on the ladder to a political position. How anyone sees this as helping union members is beyond me. Union members are seen as a way of funding the lifestyle and ambitions of the leadership. Nothing more than votes and money.

    Such as bill, professional student then awu trainee organiser

    Then uses mining tragedy to gain a national profile

    Lowest of the low and that's saying something amongst politicians.

    Bill represents everything which most people dislike about politicians

    Which explains why he's still not as popular than even Turnbull

    I was responding to Mong's post - it's quoted. What # are you talking about?

    Really? Ok then, below is the post in question, and your response.

    You'll note you didn't answer the question, nor is Mong mentioned in either post.

    You want me to answer that last question?

    "Which of the revelations from that particular RC has surprised you most mate?"


    You accused me of deflection before your threw in this red herring.

    When you go to these sort of lengths to play dumb, you're not really playing anymore.
