Kim Sattler on 7.30

johnboy 15 February 2012 52

The head of Unions ACT, Kim Sattler, got a lengthy run on the ABC’s 7.30 report last night.

Probably not how she’d have wanted to appear with her actions on Australia Day and involvement in the nationally humiliating fracas getting a forensic going over.

Is this thing human? Surely someone could not act so moronically – endanging the lives of not only the (so-called) leaders of our country but the AFP, the public and any bystanding memebr of the public who happened to be anywhere near there. I feel sorry for all the Unions and their members that this imbecile represents.

Unions ACT have come out fully in support of Kim Sattler. You would think they would express some reservations about Sattler’s behaviour on Australia Day – definitely misrepresenting Abbott, and inciting the Tent Embassy crowd.

Unions are dodgier than Tony Abbott. And that’s saying something.

Come on, we all know that behind the scenes they are all cheering her.

I don’t see how telling people where the Leader of the Opposition and the PM are is somehow a dastardly act.

People have a right to protest, they have a right to protest their political leaders. All the trouble I saw from that day on the footage looks to have been mainly due to the over reaction of the police.

I’m not sure you have been paying too much attention to debate on this topic.

It is not so much that she told them where Abbott was, but what she alleged Abbott said about pulling down the tent embassy that is the point here.

She either misguidingly or deliberately provoked a confrontation, for whatever purpose, by putting words into Abbotts mouth that he himself did not utter.

Watch the video again.

+1. She sounds like she’s trying to incite a riot in the clips I’ve seen. She also blatantly lied about what Abbott said.

It does look suspiciously as if she is trying to gee the crowd along.

I won’t say incite, but it appears to be pretty close to.

And her conduct since the event has been absolutely appalling to say the least.

Considering the cops were too gutless to arrest anybody for riotous behaviour, public nuisance, criminal damage, or any other of the many options that were open to them for getting a good number of these shiftless parasites into a cell for the night, there doesn’t appear to be much justification for them “looking into” Kim Sattler’s actions, stupid as they were.

Isn’t “he/she has our full support”, in the context of political figures and sports team coaches, generally accepted as code for “we’re currently formulating our exit strategy”?

Exactly

WTF???

Exactly what I was thinking.

Kim Sattler … Craig Thomson … very different issues, but a certain ilkliness ….

Our Kim has a way with words.

Unfortunately, I have been present when most of them would make a wharfie blush.

It’a a wonder the ABC Soviet allowed the segment to run. They must have been asleep. The ALP, Unions and The PM’s office seen in a bad light on the flagship 7:30 Report – surely not. Where was Senator Conroy? Was he too busy hacking into Andrew Bolt’s blog deleting anti government comments?

To be fair, Chris Uhlmann is one of the more balanced commentators/ interviewers in the country.

His family life must be hell.

I think its time Kim stepped down.

I tend to her agree, she has really damaged her integrity in this matter.

My quick googling shows that she’s just some union boss. Has that position historically required integrity?

*Note: the effectiveness of googling may be unusually diminished in this case due to the proliferation of the same news story being brought up in the search results.
