In Defence of Tom
I regularly read your journal when viewing the Labornet web pages and some of the articles are certainly excellent, even the ones I find I am not in agreement with are usually constructive and I feel give an insight into the demise of organised Labor.
However, I cannot recall ever seeing such a malevolent and fuckin' offensive attack on an individual, possibly with the exception of politicians who are obviously public property and should expect this and most doing so gracefully although there are some exceptions such as Costello and more recently Bolkus suing the publisher of crickey.com.
Sadly your exception; was the publication of ignominious poison pen letters directed at one of your regular 'letters to the editor contributors' whom I have found at times extremely acerbic or even rancorous, but always ending with levity or explanation as to the purpose of the sometimes sharp comments.
Your own criticisms of Piers Akerman are more mellow than the attacks which were made on this individual who has apparently, after long-term unemployment succeeded in finding a work sweeping streets, a station which surely does not attract such venom, and raises the question of the morality of a person who would launch such an attack, an attack that could be compared to stealing from the blind, pulling the wings of a fly or crucifying a prophet.
I make no claim to camaraderie with this person, I did work along with him at Parramatta City Council, and as a casual employee I helplessly watch as futile attempts were made to remove him, not for incompetence but because of his folly in standing up against the fuckwits running that Bedlam.
Where shortly after his stand against blatant racist behaviors that pressure was put on everyone to get rid of this personality and after he had been made redundant (only this individual), we were collectively told in the depot that his name was not to be mentioned again.(This is no lie)
I know this guy has been doing it tough for the past couple of years, on a fuckin' Dole Cheque, because the fuckin' Union and the paroxysmal and mentally challenged yes men employed there screwed him, not the employer. He never explained why he focused on Sartor instead of the Union. However, has done alright without these fuckin' deadweight's around his neck despite the mounting expenses in his attempts to provide for his family and educate his children. Then, I read criticism clearly from the low Bastards who have obviously benefited from this man's efforts in a previous life, since he certainly did not, unlike other 'Union Employees' obtain any personal gain. These bottom dwellers deserve to have their balls cut off, that's if they ever had any.
Is it any wonder people treated in such a manner turn on those claiming to be looking out for the worker, I now only join a Union if I have to these evil cunts cost you the Unions more support than they are worth.
As for his turning on the worker, if even a fraction of what he has told me is true, he has turned against his own class, in support of the worker, but then it might be that he is just a fuckin' good liar.
Being objective there is not much else I can say, except that it appears you too have turned on a regular contributor possibly costing him his fuckin' shit job, you may have done him a favor, perhaps you can write to him explaining your warped fuckin' logic it might just take the pain from having to selling more of his assets to pay the bills.
I thought Workers Online was a fair dinkum publication and you, although never having to actually work yourself had a bit of understanding of those that have been disadvantaged you are just another up yourself fuckin' bogus socialist wanker.
Fuckin' Unions looking after the workers, Right!
Fuck the Unions and the political correct arse wipes, usually politicians incestuously retarded offspring passing as peoples representatives (DOGS).
