I am not going to defend Abbott and I appreciate this was an embarrassing stuff up, Hockey, Turnbull and many other parts of the Coaliton made it very clear that the ABC would not be exempt from the cuts they clearly outlined for much of the public service.
Now that I can get on board with
Yes, that 4.6% (have I mentioned this number?) cut "whittles" down the workforce by an estimated 400 (less than 10%) and drives the viewers and readers to such profitable behemoths as: Fairfax: 1900 job losses two years ago and ongoing redundancy rounds: http://www.smh.com.au/business/fairfax-announces-job-cuts-20140507-37vnk.htmlNewsCorp: 1000 job...
Yes, except of course for the independent review led by LEK in 2014... http://www.theaustralian.com.au/business/media/abc-sbs-costs-review-begins/story-e6frg996-1226816213640 And the one before by KPMG in 2013. But other than these reviews it is true that there have been none.Whilst I'm likely described as arrogant (I can't speak for the italics) and cocky on a weekly basis, no-one who knows me would describe me as self-entitled. Despite the best efforts of Oli and...
Now, the issue with "averages" is that they tend to reflect the greater populace and the greater populace does indeed live away from rural areas. I didn't claim to be anti ABC, merely pointed out why a 4.6% budget cut isn't the most pressing of issues on the mind of the "average punter", which of course were your words not mine.No matter your ideological leanings, even if you're apparently a "neo-con" like me (play the ball guys), calling a Four. Point. Six. Percent....
Apologies, I was indeed a little harsh, the context being this guy......decided to look me up on LinkedIn and tell me what a cybersleuth he'd been and how he'd blown my oh-so-tight cover via pm. My admittedly immature response was personal, but I think you'd agree somewhat less personal than creepy semi-stalking... Yes oli my name is Max (well done) although you can call me Richard.
He he. Funnier still how you edited your original post because you picked up the hypocrisy!I admit I actually googled "Richard cranium" before it hit me! Haven't heard that one in a while.
A bit of politics indeed ladies and gentleman... Nothing like a state election to bring out those who treat politics like a sports match. It's all over my facebook feed, "the red team I support because my inner city parents taught me to won in that state with the sunshine and the three x beer, take that tone abet and your budgie smugglers lel". But, I must say that it's certainly nice to see Oli stop whingeing about the latest $50 mass produced shoe/pair of sunglasses he's...
Greetings from Salzburg where my RMs have stood up to a beautiful walk in the snow rather better than my tellasons, which have dissapointingly split at the crotch despite only semi regular wear over four months or so. Does anyone have a good recommendation for a place to get them patches in Syd? Took a better pic of my shoes as well. I would really recommend Vass to anyone looking at Carmina or C&J. They are certainly more reasonably priced than I first thought....
TBM that is unimaginable, I am so sorry in the very small way I can be. Just sitting here talking about it with my girlfriend and that is beyond comprehension. Thinking about you and your family.
