Melbourne is most liveable city for gang members and bully unionists

Melbourne is most liveable city for gang members and bully unionists, by Jennifer Oriel.

Melbourne has been named the world’s most liveable city for seven years in a row.

Unfortunately, it also has African crime gangs — you know the ones, the ones that for so long, ­apparently, didn’t exist. …

The PC bureaucracy takes sides:

People who take their shoes off at the cricket or say something stupid and racist to someone on public transport will be arrested quick smart. Then the police are likely to leak the story to the media so the perpetrator can be publicly humiliated as well.

The police media team loves to tweet and brag about the arrests of ordinary people committing petty crimes.

Meanwhile real criminals, such as violent gang members and union-affiliated “community activists” (people who sit in the middle of the road blocking the driveway of a business) don’t seem to get ­arrested at all. And if they do, the judges don’t impose sentences on them that are in line with community expectations. …

Ah, the party of the unions runs the state:

Road blockades by “concerned community members” receive police sanction, no matter how much economic damage they cause. There was one just before Christmas that went on for two weeks. A casual worker on the waterfront couldn’t achieve the ­legally required security clearance and was refused any further shifts. Soon after a car was parked across the driveway of the business ­concerned. No one could get in or out, produce sat there, business was suspended.

Police simply took a comfortable seat close by and observed the blockade, which consisted of a half-dozen men sitting on plastic chairs, staring at their phones and chatting.

As long as the people conducting blockades are not violent and don’t say anything racist, the police sit by and watch. Instead of clearing the road so there is safe passage for business, the police allow people to illegally block the road indefinitely, until the company involved pays the ­required bribe to the designated person, while the police look the other way. …

There is absolutely no risk of getting arrested and, in the longer term, one could end up on the board of an industry superannuation fund or even become prime minister.
