The Wit and Wisdom of Jeff Manny. Part 1, Qantas solution

By johnboy - 3 January 2012 24

Back in June 2010 we noted with some mirth that Justice Gray had been particularly scathing about the self described “second richest and biggest business man in Belconnen“.

In October 2011 I was treated to an unpleasant evening of emails from Jeff Manny, air conditioning impressario (and former heavy advertiser during the cricket), who objected to our linking and quoting the findings of the Supreme Court.

And then a strange thing happened. It turns out the Jeff Manny runs an email list of some of the most powerful people in Australia (and the world as you will see) and periodically holds forth on many subjects.

Friends and family have found Jeff’s emails hilarious, I even print them out for a friend. So we’ve decided we really should be sharing them with the RiotACT audience.

Here is part one:

subject: Qantas solution

Dear Mr. Joyce, CEO of Qantas

Your action to ground all the fleet of Qantas was very much drastic and heavy handed

I have told you that the Universe doesn’t like heavy handedness

Therefore The Universe gives some recommendations to the unions to win their battle against force of the masters

    1. Transport union actions
    1.1. Qantas union should continue their strike indefinitely
    1.2. Members of other union should help Qantas financially to be able to continue their action against force of evils
    1.3. Federal government mush create a fund to help Qantas employees financially
    1.4. Keep the Qantas planes grounded one way or other because this a best time to Nationalize the Qantas

    2. Just remember Transport unions are big and powerful
    1.1 Take the strike to the transport of minerals from mines to the ports or to overseas
    1.2 Since masters are behind this Qantas’ action then unions should be playing full hands other wise will be defeated
    1.3 This action of Qantas’ was well prepared and well co-ordinated long in advance

    3 Take the strike to fund receivers of the banks ( especially mortgage receivers)
    I am warning the unions if they don’t play they hands in full then they will lose this battle which will be
    Precedent for every business from now onwards to take the poor workers and their unions on like this

The outcome will be that Qantas go broke within 60 days and government will take the airline over
I always wanted Qantas go back to the Australian government’s hands

As I have told you that the governments run the big businesses better

Just remember that Qantas by losing $20 millions a day, doesn’t have much choices than surrender
Or let the government takes it over for free

The action of Allan Joyce was stupid, was just like shooting his own foot, he is an idiot, he should resign or be sacked now
The only winner in this dispute will be People of Australia since them getting back Qantas for free
Where previously had sold it for billions, just government keeps the Qantas for a few years more and sell it again for
Billions

Mr Allan Joyce is not a smart operator; I believe he doesn’t worth fraction of the money he is getting
But unfortunately it is pack of dogs policy and the best man doesn’t get the job

It would be very hard for Qantas come of this dilemma intact what Alan Joyce has put them in
Boys of the unions you will get all of your demands and more, since Qantas is negotiating on its back foot now
Union mates stand firm and don’t give an inch, you are the winner

Kind regards

Jeff Manny

Dear readers

The whole ideas of my emails are to catch your eyes and make you to think

When you see Peter Sellers acting ridiculously in his movies to tell you a story or a message in his acting

I have practiced this language to catch your eyes for years; there is always a message in my emails

Message about Qantas is that:

1. Federal government of Australia sells Qantas for billions to the private sectors then asks Qantas to compete with other Asian government hold airlines

2. There was other part of the email which is not published was how can be allowed 30 thousands of passengers painfully be stranded all over the world

Lets be honest, how many of you have read articles about Dr Schmitt Nobel prize winner from ANU about expansion of the universe in non uniform rate

Jeff Manny

Dear Mr Manny,

Grammar. Let’s be honest, it’s important.

What about content dear sir?

Feeling *much* happier with my decision not to buy aircon off this nutjob now.
(presumably the huge price tag included a bottomless cup of insane drivel)
