  • GOODBYE ALAN JOYCE

    QANTAS THE NEW ANSETT

    Alan Joyce Can't Lose Either way the Plane Flies!

    He couldn't be more toast, could he? But I reckon it is a warm, toasty feeling.

    After weeks of back room negotiations with government, allied airlines and other interested parties and also at board level engineerering a startegy that was to tragically highlight the supposed dysfunction of Labor workplace laws and demonise unions that had been negotiating in good faith, he turns on the community.

    My heavy hitter business friends applaud Qantas, "it's those bloody unions, turned the industrial laws back 20 years!", they bemoan that workers need to strike to get attention. I thoughts are that the labour/work/input that a worker provides is just another product in the general melange of products and services that make up business as we know it in a market society.

    So unlike all of the other products that make our Western world, this product, labour, is the only animate object, one that can group and work together to be able to negotiate their worth within the marketplace. Every businessman will tell you, "Business is Business!" and that's the bottom line, animate non object and although those that operate at the highest levels of business are biologically human, they though QANTAS sooked it and held our nation, nay our Federation of Colonies under the Crown; we are not even a Nation in our own standing yet, how fucked is that; to ransom.

    Deadset watching the first Joyce news report I thought I was looking at a young Ben Elton playing the role of one of his corporate pofaced 'THEM' dudes, but this guy must have been absolutlely staving off wetting himself, knowing that this will absolutely destroy his image to the degree of a past Telstra boss, knowing that he only really was the message boy from the board; knowing that he will cash in on his early removal; knowing that Richard Branson had already set up a mechanism to seamlessly transfer all levels of accounts and bonuses; knowingly disrupting the Spring Carnival and threatening the Federation's general economy.

    He will be remembered for killing the most reliable airline in the world, the brand is already crippled through his action and 'business' was quick to take advantage in taking up the Virgin offers, quite tragic really. If Branson wasn't such a nice a guy you'd be spewing wouldn't you?

    Hasta la Vista Joycey, you had a great ride...

    • The Songs of Robert Lloyd at Holy Trinity Church
      by Mick Pacholli


      MelbourneEast Arts Festival


      Robert Lloyd has served the Australian and International Arts/Music world since 1986. Beginning in Adelaide he has travelled the world performing and composing his unique music and songs.

      I have a couple of Robertís albums but have seen little of him live so it was wonderful to be invited to see his performance at Holy Trinity Church in East Melbourne, a show that is part of the MelbourneEast Arts Festival.

    • Democracy and the financial markets
      by Mick Pacholli

      President of Iceland Olafur Ragnar Grimsson identifies that it is a sane choice by nations to protect their democracies by simply allowing the banks to crash and default the payment of loans due to the IMF and simply rebuild their countries from the ground up.

      After suffering IMF debts that were 10 times their national GDP, when the GFC hit, unlike Australia, Iceland's banks went crashing down in tune with the EU.

    • Crash the system - Iceland's secret to success
      by Mick Pacholli

      To take this idea of Crowd Sourced Democracy and apply it to Australia isn't as far fetched as we may think.

      We all identify as Australians, whether from the far east, west, north or south, and every bit in the middle of this country. Our geological wealth is being sucked out of the country with relatively poor returns to the national coffers and our economy is tortured by global financial and economic organisations that would
