L PLATES: VEX despicably denounced by Age zoophile suspect with car canard

HsuroadkillWhile we’ve done our best not to report on the Health Services Union Victorian election because we struggle to be fair and balanced when describing the dis-organised criminals recently running it, it appears a member of the HSU crime family has accused your beloved VEXNEWS publisher of running them down in a motor vehicle in the South Melbourne precinct in dead of night.

Naturally, they had cause to ring The Age with this stupid and preposterous canard. They published it today, repeating the gravely serious and utterly false claim that does not withstand the slightest scrutiny. It is not unreasonable to assume this might be payback for our amusing role in revealing The Age hacking scandal, which led to extensive Police investigation of many Age law-breakers, whose prosecution is currently being evaluated by the Commonwealth Department of Public Prosecutions. And a few other slights over the years.

Each time we interacted with The Age’s Clay Lucas about the tall tale, the claims, including the time of the alleged incident, the speed and the nature of the atrocity and whether it had been actually the subject of a Police report kept changing so it’s a bit hard to tell which version they are currently asserting. We barely care.

We could similarly claim that there are reports about in The Age building that earnest young scribe Clay Lucas enjoys the carnal companionship of goats and hamsters. We can presume he would deny this, despite photographic evidence that is easily arranged through commonly available Adobe tools. We have already promised him that in return for this falsehood, we will Photoshop him all the way up the animal of his choice. He seemed to take it well, not something that could be said for the sheep.

While The Age wouldn’t normally find common cause with the nerdy, feisty SDA anti-feminist (some even suggest anti-female and frequently flamboyant) activists who are campaigning for Bolano, naturally, they’ll embrace an enemy of their principal Great Satan, VEXNEWS. They are nothing if not predictable. The author tells all and sundry he’s not a Green but a Labor bloke (making him extremely right-wing in Fairfax terms) which is all very well but doesn’t excuse his willingness to repeat the lies of weird losers and desperate, unemployable nobs and HSU crooks.

The highly imaginative victim of the alleged atrocity is related to Fleur Behrens, the disgraced and recently deposed official who has thrown out bruised and bloodied a few weeks ago by HSU #3 branch members who will no doubt be keen to see newly elected secretary Craig McGregor obtain from the union’s banks all the financial records of the organisation, particularly relating to Kathy Jackson’s credit cards. The accuser’s name is Dustin Behrens, listed on the HSU’s website as a union organiser.

It is notable that in The Age report Behrens describes himself as a Bolano campaigner, despite Federal Court orders that HSU staff and resources not be used for that unlawful purpose. He has frequently been seen at a Bolano call centre in Dorcas Street, South Melbourne, near the HSU office.

His willingness to be so described speaks volumes about the arrogance and brazen nature of the illegality of their enterprise, which has been manifest in recent times by the union’s leadership under Bolano.Mdbtedsussex

One of Behrens offsiders is another HSU loser calling himself “Ted Sussex” (photographed at last night’s Labor Right drinks at the AWU where we had occasion to photographically chronicle his close personal friendship with Young Labor operative Michael de Bruyn).  Sussex is currently an employee of the HSU #3 branch, probably not something he’ll put on his CV going forward when soon submitted to seek.com.

Sadly for Behrens’ tall tale, as the above exclusive photograph makes clear, the vehicle I have been driving recently appears not to have sustained any damage consistent with the claimed incident. We offered Clay Lucas the opportunity to inspect the vehicle, an offer he declined, of course, for fear that truth might interrupt his story. In any event, if I was going to run over anyone in the employ of the HSU, I’d hope at least to have cracked a headlight or two on behalf of the massively defrauded membership. And would probably have reversed over the target a couple of times.

And while we can jest about such things, making a false report to Victoria Police as Behrens has done is no laughing matter, something he’ll have cause to reflect on in the future. Like many of his fellow defendants at the HSU crime family, they’d better get a good lawyer. Jackson’s former lawyers, including the HR Nicholls Society’s Stuart Wood, want nothing to do with her these days. She screws everyone eventually. In so many ways, she’s certainly screwed her chief enabler, David Feeney.

Being denounced as a rogue driver is not perhaps the stinging criticism that it was probably intended to be. Those who have had the benefit of my sporadic attempts at driving will probably rush forth and agree with Behrens who has probably been seeking out a traffic incident to explain his poor brain function.


For the record, I am a vastly superior driver to Jackson/Bolano patron, the morbidly obese and increasingly sociopathic Labor Senator David Feeney, who was legendary for being the first Transport Workers Union official in history ever not to have possessed a drivers’ licence. We once thought this omission endearing.

We once hoped Feeney would stand up for good things in Canberra and champion people who promote those things. We loved the guy or at least loved the idea of a big fat, well-read, enthusiastic slush-fund raising numbers-man representing the forces of freedom and enlightenment in big bad Club Fed. But we shed a tear at what he’s become. A punch-line to a sick joke about the HSU. An enabler of evil.

Instead of all that promise, he’s been reduced to defending a disorganised crime syndicate, with lawyers and loot. He’s been reduced to propping up and publicly defending Kathy Jackson, who

■ has tried to destroy the government Feeney pretends to serve and plays around with as one of two Parliamentary Secretaries for Defence,

■ has besmirched senior ministers Feeney once pretended to be allied with and to do numbers for, and

■ has systematically defrauded a union of some of the poorest paid workers in Australia, with credible and specific allegations she engaged in money laundering and theft from the HSU that have left her a multi-millionaire.

In our opinion, all this makes Feeney unfit to play the role we once hoped for him. He is beyond salvation and redemption. He is as politically dead as Saddam Hussein. If and when he loses re-election to the Senate, as appears likely, he’ll struggle to find another opportunity, there’s hardly any credible figure in the ALP who would die in a ditch to give him one either. Those days are long gone.

He once fancied himself as a Richo or a Robert Ray. He’s more like Sir John Kerr, a tragic figure whose fragile ego seduced him into darkness and betrayal. “He is not the shit on Richo’s shoe,” one experienced political insider noted to us last night. “He is sociopathic and obsessed with hanging on to the HSU despite the obvious political and ethical disaster it has become. It’s just madness. Bolano’s opponents say it’s about money, it’s not, it’s not even about ALP votes because the HSU doesn’t have any and won’t have any for a long, long time. It’s about an angry little boy who has been embarrassed by the HSU blowing up in his face because of Jackson’s madness and permanently damaging his relationship with Sussex Street, who now hate him and are looking forward to the opportunity of skinning him alive.”

The legal risks Feeney has been willing to take in order to keep the crooks in charge of the HSU appear to ever expand in scope. Some say Feeney has conducted false flag ALP fundraisers to partly finance Bolano’s campaign organised by Young Labor president Ben Maxfield, one of his staff, where the money was never received by the party’s head office. Defence Minister Stephen Smith is thought to be one of the guests of honour at one illicit fundraising function, where Feeney’s factotum Maxfield excelled himself by sending the cabinet minister to the wrong venue. Stephen Donnelly loudly disparaged the “incompetent gimp” Maxfield for this stupidity, according to VEX SDA sources familiar with the matter. There have been other events with different guest-speakers, including Friend of Palestine, Foreign Minister Bob Carr, it is said.

An examination of Feeney electorate office records in 2009 will confirm the claims of former HSU officials that his office was used for many hundreds of phone calls to HSU members. A forensic investigation will show – as The Australian detailed on Saturday – that Feeney’s office continues to be used improperly by Bolano/Jackson candidates. Bolano – on the record – all but admitted that Feeney staffer Ben Maxfield was party to this fraud on the taxpayer.

This is the kind of detail we routinely sit on about these people. And there’s so much more to come, should we think it appropriate. As we noted, while we have extensively reported on the HSU this year, an inability to stay dispassionate about the outrageous has guided us to not report on their election very much at all. We’ll continue this policy until the election is declared, just prior to Christmas on the 19th, those involved in the election tell VEX.

After that we’ll be keen to explore admissions made by Marco Bolano in The Australian newspaper that Feeney’s wife – Liberty Sanger – is helping his union re-election campaign when it is claimed that her law firm is also the beneficiary of a large amount of work from the union. Suggestions that union money has been routed to Bolano via a law firm would be serious for all concerned. We make no such allegation at this time. While Bolano’s admission is interesting and apparently caused great concern at the firm, it does offer VEX an interesting line of inquiry whatever the union election result might be.  There are more smoking guns around the HSU than an Old West saloon at high noon.

Meanwhile, it appears Behrens’ boss, Marco Bolano, is having a dreadful time of it in the election itself, whining about his mortgage to all who listen and the prospect of losing his $200,000 a year job. The members of the union who pay $600 a year while earning $800 a week will probably not feel a lot of sympathy for Bolano on this. Feeney reputedly didn’t want the unpleasant looking fellow running again but was unable to persuade him to fall on his sword despite strenuous efforts. We thought Bolano would lose in 2009, so he might well prevail, especially if the reports of ballot stealing and mail tampering are correct.

Consider the risks involved in this behaviour: not only is interfering with someone’s mail a crime, it’s obviously also a crime to create a false document as would occur when signing a members’ name. In a discussion this week, we reminded one of the “Taliban” Right militants of the potential catastrophe that could befall those so involved. This is the muck into which Feeney has descended, many believe.

A Bolano victory will probably be the final blow for the Victorian HSU, as it would almost inevitably descend into disaster and chaos prior to much-anticipated criminal charges against former Victorian HSU officials in the lead-up to another election in 18 months time. From a VEX copy-generation point-of-view this would probably be a good thing although those who believe that unions can be a force for good in people’s lives will obviously hope for any result other than a Bolano win. An angry Youtube video paints him as an Underbelly sleaze, not quite how we’d characterise the dope-head but he is certainly out of his depth running the HSU, something he proved beyond doubt by merging the Victorian union – shortly after his election – with the NSW one, in a move designed to make him impervious to electoral challenge from horrified members.

We don’t intend to report on the HSU election mess past today unless similarly provoked with false allegations of criminality. Keep in mind, in the space of one year, Feeney’s agents at the HSU have falsely accused a federal cabinet minister of assault and making telephone calls to HSU randoms/members to micro-manage various arcane and fancifully conceived things. They are dark princes of perjury, willing to swear up even the most spectacularly implausible claims in a desperate attempt to get them published. They rely on no-one ever reporting these false declarations to the authorities. That would be a brave assumption for them, going forward.

    Actually that’s not the case, the allegation was made by Di’s friend and ticket member, Sherida Jacks.

    False Stat Decs? I don’t think so, the Stat Decs were a summary of a recording of Ms Jack’s confession.

    That should make Michael Lawler’s colleagues happy at Fair Work Australia. They already think he’s a lazy drunk, who never shows up for work… Maybe the happy couple have had to invite his colleagues to the wedding. In which case, look out for a slowdown in decision-making at FWA next March.

  63. Why hasn’t Landy commented on the Ombudsman’s investigation into Darebin? Not allowed to?

    [VEXNEWS: Apparently, it is a criminal offence to reveal anything about the Ombudsmanus’s deliberations. In the case of Darebin, it is reasonably clear the fevered speculation of imminent reports (always claimed to be ‘next week’) is not correct which has led us to presume they may not be issuing a report, which is an option for them, should they not wish to do so. The Age has speculated some parties intend to litigate if they do, which would be a highly amusing and a long overdue check on the Ombudsman’s dodgy ways.]

  65. Regarding your response A L , you are wrong. It is not a criminal offence to reveal the Ombudsman’s deliberations. The Age is not facing prosecution and won’t.

    [VEXNEWS: I am advised that is far from certain.]

    However, it is an criminal offence for people questioned by or under investigation by the Ombudsman to talk about it.

    [VEXNEWS: That’s true, apparently, yes, but I’m not sure the ban is limited to that class of persons]

    That is why you (having hurled substantial vitriol at the Ombudsman in the past)are legally compelled to shut up about the investigation. Subsequently, you have shut up, you had no choice.

    [VEXNEWS: LOL, I have not at all been investigated by the Ombudsman or interviewed by him or his Satanically-evil winged monkeys. If I had I would have prefaced each response to every question with the words “Fuck you”.]

    I assume you are one of the corrupt parties threatening litigation. Well it won’t stop matters being referred to Vic Pol by the Ombudsman or the whistleblowers.

    [VEXNEWS: I laugh in your general direction. If I was unfairly besmirched by the corrupt Ombudsman and his corrupt staff, a legal response would have been just part of my response which would most certainly have included making a sculpture of George Brouwer using excrement from the elephant zoo of my choice.]

    Taking bribes from developers and funding non existent community groups is a criminal offence.

    [VEXNEWS: I can advise I have neither received nor been offered bungs from any source. The closest I got today was a free feed of Macca’s, which included a Big Mac, fries and the somewhat ironically chosen Diet Coke. I, typically, gave nothing in return.]

    The hammer will fall within 3 months. Is your sphincter tightening?

    [VEXNEWS: I thought the hammer would fall next week. It’s always been next week, most of the year. My sphincter may be tightening but that could be due to the free lunch.]

  113. One of the main flaws in the union movement is that they still operate on a first past the post voting system. A system that is widely open to misuse and abuse and is recognized as being the most undemocratic voting system. Unions need to adopt a preferential proportional voting system, putting an end to cronyism and corrupt union practices.

The noose is closing on Mighell, there is no way out, you will make history as the incumbent that never was, you will be sharing a room with the cross dressers, Mighell, Grandma & Coward which will suit you fine and all of you Geelong Cock Suckers will find then selves on Gov hand outs. By Easter it will be all be out inthe public eye and the members of Vic branch will once again be able to hold their heads high awaiting on the Jail terms of Mighell and all that stood by.

  118. “……Vic branch will once again be able to hold their heads high awaiting on the Jail terms of Mighell and all that stood by.”

    re the above, been waiting for years for the punchline on this one. I think some folk are clearly deluded, but then again its been an odd week in and around unions. Anyway, moving on isn’t the real story these slush funds where employers make contributions to $400 a head dinners? What possible interest could employers have in who gets elected in a union? What are they buying for their money? Same for companies that make donations to the ALP. What are they buying for their money? No one is seriously suggesting that it’s just philanthropy for workers are they? No wonder the union movement is in the state it is in. When you look at some of the dregs around the country infecting the movement it makes you want to weep.

  124. Michelle Grattan has made her pronouncement – Ashby may have lost the battle but he won the war.

    It is journalists like Grattan who fed on the swill of the Ashby case and were complicit in siding with opposition’s attack on Slipper through the parliamentary privilege.

    Grattan and her fellow crony journalists in the Canberra press gallery slated Gillard’s misogynist whereas it was lauded worldwide.

    There is a sickness in Australia and it concerns the conventional public media like the Age and the Dirty Digger’s newspapers. Mealy-mouthed journalist like Grattan pretend to be journalists but merely express their own narrow opinion.

    It is a sad day when a journalists of the ilk of Grattan put the swill the generate above the law.

    Time has just about run out, have you been following the Courts, Mighell & Grey ( personally ) have been fighting hammer and tong to keep the Vic Branch finanicals being independently forensically scrutinised. All have failed miserably, Mighell is spending Hundreds of Thousands of dollars keeping him from jail and have lost every one ( I can supply details ) & Grey is trying to protect what Mighell promised him, succession to SS, but he will also go down for his knowledge of what went down whilst he was a Board member of Protect & how his recent Full Federal Court case was funded. Please make a room for two.
