Prosecution calls for $250,000 for zeffs

johnboy 5 September 2006 26

Thanks to dan for the heads up, the ABC has a story on prosecutionc alls for a $250,000 fine on Zeffirelli’s for their dodgy labour hire practices.

Counsel for he restaurant does not concur and has a swing at Kate Lundy:

“Today the restaurant’s lawyers criticised ACT Senator Kate Lundy, saying allegations of mistreatment that she raised in Federal Parliament were inflammatory and damaging. Arthur Moses told the court the case was not about which political party had more hair on its chest when it came to protecting workers’ rights but about getting justice for all those concerned. He said the prosecution’s argument that Zeffirelli should be find nearly a quarter of a million dollars for underpaying workers by about $5,000 was fanciful.”

It’s a bit of shame Lundy has let herself go. Still if Zeff’s can convince her to eat there regularly, maybe the 250k fine can be quickly paid off…

Yes VG,

but as I recall Lucille Ballie also had very good ball handling skills…

I knew her way back when. When she was working on a building site and better known as the then gf of the father of her current kids. She used to pop into the club to pick him up after footy training in her aerobics gear. She WAS a hottie.

And I think you’re talking about Lucille Baillie. Tall and nice looking, but more than a little vacuous

I guess if you alternate choice was Vanstone! The local Libs had a genuine hottie running at the last elections – cant remember her name but she was hammering in a placard on Yamba Drive and I stopped to have a chat – blond probaby around 35 – anyone remember her?

she is alright for a pollie… less of a pig than most.. still pretty horrid though.

Thumper 3:37 pm 06 Sep 06

Ah come on Bonfire,

She may have porked up a bit but she was okay before then.

Lundy a hottie ?

for every gretel, theres a hansel.

thats why the larger brothels keep at least one fat and one old girl around.

Shes got legs – she knows how to use them

Lundy is not a hottie – she’s a bloody big porker!

Lundy is a hottie!

“Why the hell are we bringing these bastards out from The Phillipines anyway? I’m sure that no matter how badly they’re paid here, it’d still be better than living in The Phillipines!”

My thoughts exactly mainly because of the quality of food. The Phillipines has to be amongst the worst countries in Asia when it comes to culinary delights.
Anybody ever been to a Phillipine restaurant? There is only one I know of and thats in Singapore and only there for the Phillipine offshore workers.

I’m told that with a pair of clippers, she can actually shave the names of all her faction members into it as a party trick!

Looking at Lundy I wouldn’t be surprised if she had “hairs on her chest”.

Big Al 5:07 pm 05 Sep 06

Mr E, I suspect that with the unemployemnt rate as low as it is – you’d want to be pretty damn hungry to go eating pizza made by most of the remaining local jobless – trust me, I’ve tried to give some of those guys a job – but even standing still holding a ranging pole was beyond these guys.

Force some of our own longterm unemployed out to work for a change.

I think anyone will find if they know a chef/waiterperson/kitchen hand, they have many a 1st hand account to tell u over a beer ( your shout of course !! )

Fair enough, Danman, fair enough.

LG – your criticism is reasonable. I accept that you may not believe me, but I make my comments in good faith. Be aware that the cooking fraternity in Canberra (and in other places I’ve worked for that matter) is a particularly insular, gossipy and strongly networked group of misfits and manic-depressives. Some of the accounts I have heard are from cooks who worked there, rather than a cook’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s guitar teacher.

Shab – I am talking from the point of a frugal father to be point of view – a cheap joint to eat at with the wife and kids. I have never heard anything bad about zeffers from a customers point of view. Big staff turnover tho – but as a paying customer – not really an issue I am motivated with.

LurkerGal 1:23 pm 05 Sep 06

shab: I never worked for them – but I’ve heard stuff ….

Yeah, well, everyone knows that if you hear stuff then it must be true! Kind of like reading it on the internet. And if your mother’s friend’s daughter’s preschool teacher’s uncle told you stuff, then that’s the law.

Possibly all of the people in the catering industry could go out in support of the teachers tomorrow.

9% for everybody I say!!!
