Youth Day rail strike plan rushed to IRC – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

07 Jul

A rail strike plan for the most crowded day in the World Youth Day schedule is a strike too far, in my opinion, and I say that as one not involved in WYD, not even all that enthusiastic about it, and as a trade unionist. I think the Rail Union is being unbelievably stupid, not doing the union movement any favours at all. Look, they may have a case, but my immediate thought, and I think most Sydney residents would agree, is that I no longer care. It is blackmail, no doubt about it.

Rail Union: sack that ugly dick who speaks for you on TV. I find him truly offensive… But I find RailCorp pretty offensive too…

@ update: strike averted!part of the political assassination of M Iemma?

NSW Government: how much more incompetent can you get? You have lost my vote — though come to think of it I am fortunate enough to be in Clover Moore’s electorate so I have actually never voted for you, not since some time last century…

And yes, at the Federal level my vote is a different story.
