GMB Union doesn't really represent the workers.

A recent Employmant Tribunal saw a claimant being awarded +35K after being unfairly dismissed.
This was after a long battle and was a good decision by The Court.
This long battle was not helped by the Claimant's union trying to put the mockers on the whole shebang.
First, they said they would represent the claimant.
Then they said No.
Then they said they would represent him if they thought there was a chance of winning.
Then they said No.
It was obvious to everyone that the claim was with merit.
However, the GMB seems to have been embedded with the Council in this matter.

A letter was sent to GMB headquarters reminding them of their duty to protect workers.
Passed down into the long grass.

This went to the GMB leadership : (one name has been changed)

Re : Fred Bloggs v. Argyll and Bute Council.



Dear Mr Donaldson,

The union has now informed me that I will not be represented by Pauline Paxton in my Employment Tribunal case against Argyll and Bute Council.

According to the GMB website, 'GMB is a campaigning trade union focused on protecting GMB members in their workplaces …..'.

However, that does not seem to be the case in this instance.

I was sacked for my work in protecting the rights of the workers while I was on sick leave and without any chance of rebutting the allegation against me.
I was sacked as a result of my union activities yet the union has refused to represent me in my Employment Tribunal case.
This is surprising considering that the only evidence offered by the employer was :

1) an anonymous witness statement by someone who was offered inducements to perjure himself
2) a series of conversations covertly taped by the Council's representative.

Such an attack on union rights using such methods would have been expected to have been of some interest to the union lest it become the norm.
Apparently not.
The union lawyers have said they can only act in cases which they think have a 51% chance of success.
However, Pauline Paxton thinks my case has a very strong chance of success bearing in mind that the Council evidence, from an 'anonymous witness', was comprehensively rebutted by The Sun newspaper reporter who appeared as a witness for me.

In the past, the union was quite happy to defend the clearly indefensible with respect to 'Bollinger Bob' of whom The Independent said :

'Robert Parker was forced to resign as leader of the GMB general union in Scotland in March last year after four complaints of bullying and harassment were lodged against him at employment tribunals by his own staff. All were settled with the union's funds taking a hammering. The biggest payout, of £300,000, was made to Margaret McAvoy, Parker's former PA, who claimed he had sexually harassed her.'

Of course, he was the Regional Secretary and well worth nearly two million pounds in the process.



The full time official, Pauline Paxton, seemed very keen to represent both Craig Lauffer and myself in our cases. However, the union stopped her representing him in his tribunal and have now stopped her from representing me in my tribunal.
That is truly scandalous given the context of us having been sacked for working to ensure that workers have a safe workplace.

I would ask you to re-consider the decision not to allow me union representation at my tribunal.



Yours faithfully Fred Bloggs.


Cc Paul Kenney, GMB General Secretary

Pauline Paxton

He won his case.
Simple.
The Union didn't help.

Meso beats a corrupt Council

.

Recently, an Employment Tribunal awarded +35K to a claimant.

The full story will be published here very soon even though there have been threats made against the writer.
The Tribunal Judgement is a matter of public record.

However, for those who haven't read it :


And regarding Mr Murphy, the Tribunal noted : 'He had relied on Mr Welsh's transcript and on an unauthenticated copy of a recording of uncertain provenance of dubious origin and uncertain authenticity which he had interpreted it in a way that the Tribunal found it was not reasonable for him to have done and he had relied on the unchecked statement of an anonymous witness.'

The Tribunal noted :

'Following a Case Management Discussion on 30 July 2010 -(at which it was explained by the Claimant's representative that ; "The main issues which result in the alegations of unfairness" were; "The use by the Respondent of a taped conversation" and "The reliance by the Respondent on an Anonymous witness statement in each case as part of the disciplnary process)....'

This anonymous Witness Statement was actually retracted.

No matter, The Merkin will tell all.

'unauthenticated copy of a recording of uncertain provenance of dubious origin and uncertain authenticity'

Beautiful, no?

Undercover St Trinians Agents-Provocateurs


The former SDS officer, who has now left the Met, said one stipulation by senior commanders was that undercover officers should be married, so that they had something to return to. He said the move was introduced when a spy never returned after five years undercover.

Never returned?
Pissed myself laughing.
Sad but true.

We have seen many times that the incompetence of our boys in blue has allowed the 'terrorists' free rein in our green and pleasant land.

This one takes the biscuit.

The Great St Trinians Train Robbery has 'the men from the Ministry' being seduced and never returing to work as undercover agents.
I spent a good portion of my life in the company of Greenies, Veggies, Untermensch types and Antis of some kind or other.
Did the biz with umpteen for no pay at all.
Was I in the wrong career?
Seems so.

Happens once as tragedy and returns as comedy, perchance?

That is why we need a FULL inquiry into the 7/7 bombings.

Who actually believes the official version now?

Monbiot is a Danger to Us All.

I wrote on the Graun blog yesterday.
Only a few words.
Plenty of recommends and it lasted 18 hours.

Then, suddenly, into that black hole of nothingness that is Graun deletion.

What was it I said that could rock the boat that is MMGW orthodoxy?.

Well, Mr. Monbiot said : 'The cold has reason in a deathly grip.'

Quite reasonably, I said 'Sure, the Cold tried to hide all the evidence about the Climategate Emails.'

Pouf. No more did I say that. Disappeared like snow of a dyke.

Why should this be so?

Mr Monbiot is well aware that I am more qualified than him in those areas of science in which he seeks to lecture the proles.
Worse than that, that he refuses to repudiate the words of one of his acolytes who seeks to threaten all of us who have a different view.

She said : 'This is something so obvious only the most hardened Denialists will fail to appreciate it - it's the long-term trend that is important. Even I know this and I'm not a scientist. . . . . . . What they are doing is tantamount to treason, not only against the human race but the biosphere itself. Someone somewhere should be making a list of names.'

But, you see there are scientists amongst us who don't agree with you.

Meanwhile, we are freezing and Mr Monbiot tries to give us the Orwell Truth.

Cold is Global Warming
Heat is Global Warming
Drought is Global warming
Flood is Global Warming

Listen, George, the scam is over - same as the scam war of Terror.

You guys better scoop up the dissidents while you can.

As I said before, The similarities between High Priest Monbiot and GreenAngel to members of The Family of are quite chilling.

No doubt I am on a list.
Certainly, Climategate is on a list of words that the Graun doesn't like.
What else has George proscribed?

The guy is dangerous. No more, no less.

He is a tool of Big Society/Pharma/Oil and represents the most obvious form of repression we are all experiencing.
How many Ian Tomlinsons or Jody McIntyres will be damaged by his rantings?

Plenty more, that's for sure.

Ambassador Who? Says that Straw Knew

Once More Into The Black Hole Of Orwellian Nothingness.

Those of you who have followed the increasing paranoia at the heart of government, against those who tell the truth, will not be surprised.

A simple Graun story with a simple standfirst 'The advice of worldly, well-educated Foreign Office diplomats is simply being ignored'

The article said :

'Yet ­listen to the stretching procession of Sir Jeremys, Sir Christophers and Sir Michaels. Their advice wasn't taken; they weren't consulted; they were spear-carriers on some macabre White House stage; they just weren't there.'


So, I commented on what had been said in the article.

*******

MerkinOnParis; 14 Feb 2010, 7:08PM

'Never mind the former ambassadors!

Craig Murray was in place as Her Majesty's Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Uzbekistan when he notified the government about the torture, in that country, which was taking place on our behalf.

Did the government listen to him.
No, he was marginalised.

Mr Straw, through Michael Wood, actually told him that 'torture by proxy for intelligence purposes' was ok'


*******

Nothing too strange there because, as Mr Murray points out in his excellent book Murder in Samarkand',

'So there we had it. Torture by proxy for intelligence purposes was legal.
If the so called evidence that resulted could not be used in a court that was of little worry - the government had instituted indefinite detention without charge in the Uk, on the authority of the Home Secretary, citing 'Intelligence Material'.



Now tell me, how has The Graun averted the fall of Western Civilisation by moderating a snippet of truth from The Merkin?

Vacuum Tubes for Palestine

Long time ago.
I wanted a siren for my bike.
Had read the DC comics adverts.
X-Ray specs.
Ant Farms.
Tireless Legs.

I was more interested in the technology that would allow my bike to sound like an 'Ambliance' as Neil called it.

OK
We went to the shop.
Bought the 'siren'.
Not sooooo easy.

My father paid 27/9d - a lot of money in those days.

The girl took the order and the money.
She placed it in a capsule and sent it down a vacuum tube to the cash desk.

Duly, we got the receipt and the 'ticket to ride'.

Many years later, I saw the same thing.

Was a Sci-Fi film where this was now new technology.

Fuck off.

Seen it, done it, bought the siren.

Freewoman wants to cull The Untermensch

It was my birthday.

Freewoman talked about culling those she doesn't like - non-Zionists, Palestinians, Freedom Fighters etc.

I remembered it.

So, when I agreed with a commenter on the Graun, I thought it would be reasonable to refer to her previous comments.

No such luck.

Freewoman is one of the GIYUS mob who are immune to criticism.

Even though I referred to a Graun article, already in print, I was still modded.

exArmy re MsWoman : 'They need to be culled.'

(She was taliking about the Afghans but had previously said the same about the Gazans).

I always find it interesting when MsWoman, Quirky and Waltz show their racist tendencies while giving us the mock shock horror stuff about the Germans culling people in the past.

We know who runs the Banking System.
Is it possible that they also control the media?

I'm Not Bitchin' I'm Clownin'

.


The Merkin has finally succumbed to the lure of X-Factor.
Well, not quite but I have watched it a few times over the last wee bit.

Why should this be so?

I meet good friend of mine a coupla times a week for the odd whisky or two and a parsing of the weeks events politically (hopefully that doesn't get us on a watch list, somewhere).

The local bar where this Tollpuddle-esque activity takes place has, in recent times, taken to showing X-Factor on the large screen for the delectation of the various Foggies, Compos, Cleggies, Victors and Jacks that inhabit the 'old man's bar'.

So, I am stuck with it as I am a very junior member of that esteemed congregation.

Secondly, my girlfriend - a very, very good karaoke singer who is, unfortunately, not a musician - gets her musical education from this very programme, it seems, while busily ignoring my unrivalled production skills.

Again, I am stuck with it such is the lure of Nat King.

No matter, at least the guy with the big hairdo is going to sing one of my favourite songs - 'Get yer Rocks Off' by Primal Scream.

But wait, how are they going to deal with those lines in the verse which mention junkies, whores, strip-joints, bitches and itchy clap?

And I guess that 'hunchbacks' is not going to figure prominently before the nine'o'clock watershed either.


Dealers keep dealin'
Thieves keep thievin'
Whores keep whorin'
Junkies keep scorin'
Trade is on the meat rack
Strip joints full of hunchbacks
Bitches keep bitchin'
Clap just keep a itchin'


What to do to prevent our vulnerable youngsters hoisting the black flag and starting to slit throats?

Easy done.
Just do the old karaoke trick of makin' up the words as you go along and hoping that no-one will notice the difference.

The result?

Dealers keep dealin'
Thieves keep thievin'
Jokers keep jokin'
Hustlers keep hustlin'
Cops keep coppin'
Hustlers keep comin'
Bitches keep bitchin'
Clowns keep comin


I can see Cowell and Walsh in Father Ted mode giving Jamie last minute instructions in the use of the bad language :

'Down With That Sort Of Thing' and 'Careful Now'.

On the other hand, perhaps I am being overly cynical and he really is the archetypal karaoke singer who doesn't mind what rubbish he spews forth.

My girlfriend will be vindicated (which is what I will be if she ever reads this post!).

George has every right to delete anyone he wants - after all it is 'his' blog.

That he covers it in the Guardian is neither here nor there.

It is his choice to delete swathes of scientists, if he wants, when they don't accept his point of view.

However, when it is obvious that he does not want to engage with his critics then we must be allowed to point that out.

Some comments that will show his view - bearing in mind that not a sparrow can drop on this thread without his say-so.

'There is no 'argument'. There is no 'debate'.

As any psychologist will tell you, denial is borne of fear. Fear of change, or fear of those things that don't fit nicely into our cosy little world view.

That fear is right here in those who would rather character assassinate GM (that's George Monbiot, not Monsanto btw) than look at the overwhelming mass of evidence.

A list of names for what purpose may we ask?

Will George Monbiot repudiate the words of his acolyte?

Why else would my comment have been sucked into the Black Hole of Orwellian Nothingness that is The Graun.

I did not refer to BennyBriscoe at any time, so what is your point?
We do know that some of his posts were deleted and I would think his claims were worth a lot more than some of the warmist trolling we have seen here.


However, I did say
, 'What I do know is that Mr Monbiot's attacks on anyone who disagrees with the official line - on such things as MMGW and the question of how three steel framed buildings fell down in a fire - are becoming increasingly desperate.'

Now, I am just going to a prayer meeting with one of the actual Lizards who bayoneted the babies in the incubator.

What did I let myself in for?

Aaaaaaaaaargh. . . . . . . . .

The full panoply of control methods directed at The Merkin starting with deletion by The MonbiotMods Squad.

Why should this be so?

Perhaps, Mr Monbiot is reminded that he has no credibility as anything, other than a gatekeeper, after he cited Popular Mechanics as his source for the claim that three steel-framed buildings were brought down by a fire in New York.

Perhaps he could also explain why these, relatively minor, diesel and paraffin fires left thermite traces?

I doubt it.

You see Mr Monbiot does not do science, it seems, only GW faith pontifications.

He has been asked to debate the subject with more than one climatologist.
However, he has said he won't sit the exam unless they give him the answers in advance. Brilliant ploy.

What is he scared of?

Meanwhile, I am going to feed The Lizards their diet of Princess Diana Bones and New Improved Incubator Babies.

Merkin 1 Monbiot 0 - A Victory for Truth

.

Monbiot is on the run in the Graun article and has moderated swathes of scientists in an effort to stall the inevitable.

Now, why should my comment be cast into The Black Hole of Orwellian Nothingness that is the Guardian?

Is it because I am too academically qualified to be allowed to make a dissenting comment?

Is it because he knows that his citing of Popular Mechanics, in relation to the first time downing of skyscrapers in a fire, is hardly evidence of academic credibility?

' The reduction in pressure triggered the automatic pumping system, which poured thousands of gallons of diesel on to the fire. The support trusses weakened and buckled, and the building imploded. Popular Mechanics magazine polled 300 experts and came to the same conclusions.'

Could it be that he was jet-lagged after one of his junkets at my carbon-footprint expense?

We will never know.

What I do know is that he has certainly lost the argument, big style.

Former Neutrals, such as myself, will certainly think that the tipping point is seen where any dissent is immediately made history - though, in my case, immediate was a day and a half and 85 recommends later.

What I do know is that Mr Monbiot's attacks on anyone who disagrees with the official line - on such things as MMGW and the question of how three steel framed buildings fell down in a fire - are becoming increasingly desperate.

Just do the debate without an army of spin doctors to give you pro-forma answers in advance and you may have more credibility.

And, on no account cite Popular Mechanics as an informed source.

Having seen the reaction of the Yankees to Our Kenny's brave and principled stance, I am even more concerned about the likelihood that Gary McKinnon will be made a scapegoat to assuage the anger over American impotence in this case.
