  1. G’day John

    The only thing I miss about AdderlyDadderlyDooLally and his dogsbody is the pair of them fessing up about leading “Highbrow” and I up a six year garden path.

    I cannot believe the crud they have put us through and for what reason?

    Speak up anyone who thinks they have a reputation to save.

    Speak up if you want to defend these dishonest people.

    Speak up if you think they are not liars.

    Speak up if there is any reason to have any respect for them.



    • As you know James I write about whistleblowers.

      They all get punished.

      It’s seen very much by management as us vs them.

      You will be aware of the idiom, “To throw (someone) under the bus”.

      That is what happens. That is what the tribunal and court system is for though (however flawed) to try and deter this sort of behaviour.

      However, in party politics the whistle is rarely blown, because the repercussions bring down governments and end careers.

      The cover ups of fiascos are endless in politics with the phrase “sweep it under the carpet” somewhat summing up the usual way of dealing with matters.

      That’s quite literally what you are up against James, the political class, the “old boy network” and the machinery of state.

      • Oh and as this byelection is about Claughton, I think a link to courted and feted is warranted!

        • Hear Hear John

          I was going to quote “Ankles” “The ex-Dunny Chain Wearer” but I couldn’t decide which bit.

          They stink.



          They could have ended this waste of money years ago.

          More FOI’s to come John because they just can’t tell the truth and be open, honest and transparent.
