Quiet calm..........

Today the government updated their offer on our pay was virtually the same as the first offer.

I should be feeling very angry about this but I find myself strangely calm.....almost alarmingly so!

I want better pay and we all deserve it.....but as I am looking for greener pastures I have suddenly discovered that the arrogance of the W.A. State Government now only seems to make me feel pity......for their stupidity. A large number of Police are going to resign over this......experienced senior staff.....and the Government is going to reap what they have sown.

Good luck...........I'm not going to hang around to suffer the fall-out. Alan Carpenter and John Kobelke.....may the societal detritus you are breeding visit upon you personally.

Now here's the latest news.....

Since my last post I have turned a year older (yes I may be two years older than you for a month little bro but you aren't getting much sleep ...... so I think I'm ahead!). I had a wonderful day out and about with the one I love.

The rally I mentioned was extremely successful in as much as more than 2000 police protested outside parliament, we got national media coverage and the arbitration body is now taking our side in negotiations.....we kicked arse and the politicians know it! They are still not feeling terribly generous towards us but they know we mean business. Anyway I'm looking elsewhere so they can shovel sand up their respective arses!

I am seriously hunting for new employ so things are looking up.....we'll see where things go.

It's about time I started a new batch of fact several batches I think........what about you little bro????

It's been a while....

Since I have said anything. A lot has happened of late....I was on holidays, got sick (tonsilitis!), saw the doctor, got better and now I'm back at work. I didn't get much of the home maintenance done that I had wanted to but sometimes you just have to roll with the punches.

Work is much the same sadly and a very good work friend has been promoted and moved on to better things.....we shall miss her forthright comments to all and sundry....especially those to 'hairplug'!

Tomorrow we are going to do something that has never been necessary for police to do in this state......hold a union rally at the state parliament!!!! It is a bold and somewhat risky move but the politicians that should be negotiating our pay conditions have indicated that we are not important to them....they won't even talk to us about our fair pay and conditions claims.

It's an interesting thought....if this rally got out of hand (which it won't) who would be called to sort it out.........after all we are the police and that's what we would normally do.....interesting thought just the same............
