Here's a post from another forum might give anyone who's interested the short story of what goes on.

Quote
A little information on the Health Services Union (HSU)
Letís look at the types involved in the HSU:-


Craig Thomson Ė A New Zealand former HSU National Secretary then ALP Member for Dobell

Zoe Arnold - Married to Craig Thomson, former press secretary to Reba Meagher, ex NSW ALP Health Minister

Leo McLeay - former ALP MHR, HSU Ombudsman.

Mark McLeay - Son of noted bike rider Leo McLeay, brother of Paul McLeay, former (sacked for watching porn)
NSW ALP Minister. Employed by Thomson.

Mike Williamson - National President HSU, former ALP National President, NSW ALP Vice-President,
mentor to Craig Thomson

Alex Williamson - Daughter of Mike Williamson, staffer for Julia Gillard

Natalie Bradbury - National HSU Assistant Secretary, sister of David Bradbury, ALP member for Lindsay

Jeff Jackson - former State Secretary HSU, had to pay back $15,000 due to unauthorised pay increases

Kathy Jackson - National Secretary HSU, ex-wife of Jeff Jackson, former State Secretary HSU


And of course, the HSU members themselves - Expected to pay up their dues to support the above
plus Thomson and his mates raunchy exploits.
Does anyone really need to ask whatís wrong with the union movement, the ALP or the country,
because this scenario is repeated through most unions, most state ALP offices and the national ALP.


Itís the system that coughs up people like Thomson, Swan, Albanese, Shorten, Emerson, Combet,
Gillard and many others who have slid into safe ALP seats using the union members as a tool to their progress.
The poor old union members have no idea what happens to their union dues nor have they any say in it.
Hopefully now they might start to wake up to the thieving and rorting which has been going on for years
and the huge amount of money their union heavies syphon off to finance their sleaze and the ALP.

The next election is going to be brutal - I can hardly wait.  It's a pity that the Libs can't find a better PM than Abbott though.

I agree, probably not the best place to post that but I couldnt resist, people need to know what goes on with Unions.

Agree on Abbott too, but cant believe anyone is less popular than Gillard.

A few state liberal politicians that I know reckon Abbott is by far a better person to lead the party than Turnbull who was too much a control freak.

But I'm sure there's gotta be someone better than Abbott

Of course they would, Turnbull is too left wing for Liberal. But that's the problem right there...

Australians preferred Rudd to Gillard - Labor picked Gillard, twice
Australians preferred Turnbull to Abbott - Liberal picked Abbott

It goes to show the arrogance of our politicians thinking they are immune to public opinion. If one party had been smart and picked the leader that Australians want, it would go a long way...
