Thomson didn’t warn he might hurt himself, he accused the media of trying to push him to hurt himself, “Is this about trying to push someone to the brink?”. And Kathy Jackson who charged to the HSU$46,290 for a Volvo and thousands of dollars for uniforms for a child care service in which no one wears uniforms deserves hero status from the opposition leader and puff pieces from News?
“Ms Jackson is also subject to a Fair Work Australia investigation.”
“Heading the mining donors was Queensland magnate Clive Palmer, whose companies sent $959,000 to the Liberal and National parties. Queensland Nickel was the largest individual donor to the Liberal Party with $500,000. The commission’s figures appear to show no mining dollars going to Labor.
The tobacco industry was similarly one-sided, although in its case that was because Labor has stopped accepting its donations.
British American Tobacco and Philip Morris sent a combined $264,000 to Coalition parties, much of it in small parcels, the most intriguing of which was a donation of $999 to the South Australian Liberal Party.”
“Clubs and hotels also pulled out the cheque books, after the Independent MP Andrew Wilkie struck a now-defunct pokies deal to help Labor form government. Clubs New South Wales has disclosed it spent around $1 million last financial year on campaigns and more than $400,000 on donations. The New South Wales division of the Australian Hotels Association told the commission it gave nearly $860,000 in donations, mainly to the Liberal and National parties.”
So what is it about women that makes them willing to risk all to do the right thing?
It can’t be that women are more ethical than men. But do they possess a special intuition to detect wrongdoing before their male colleagues?
Or is it the fact that in male-dominated workplaces they are less likely to be “team players” because they are excluded from the mates’ network and thus are able to judge ethical breaches dispassionately?
Are they less greedy for power and wealth, and therefore less afraid to rock the boat?
Or are they more in touch with the real world because they are used to running households.
