Ex-crims face sack in every plan?

THOUSANDS of workers with criminal convictions could be removed from the nation's airports and ports under a security crackdown to be considered by cabinet today.

But why is being an ex-crim and going to work a crime?

With the John HoWARd government's skilled and unskilled job shortages one does not have to wonder why?

The government won't employ ex-crims and now they're pushing the private sector into putting them off so they can join the unemployment que?

The latest target by the fascist HoWARd Government is the Airport workers' and wharfies with convictions for crimes such as assault and theft that could be sacked or denied a security clearance under the fascist plan.

The HoWARd Government will also move to appoint security supremos at Sydney and other major airports around Australia.

The pro-government corporate Newspaper the Un-Australian is jumping up and down intimating that the government sack honest workers as well as those who have been charged with a criminal offence.

But it makes you wonder whether they're too close to the action? How about they reveal their sources?

And if everyone who has a past criminal conviction has to get the sack because some right wing religious corporate media giant jumps up and down whether they're doing it for HoWARd or not, then you can bet all they're doing is trying to protect their own greedy interests. Of course it's a two way street, tit for tat and a pat on the back.

How can the corporations ensure there is no disruption to their precious tourist industry that reportedly brings in 20 Billion dollars a year opposed to the working-men-and-women's meagre living wage?

Shame about the jobs and other people's lively-hoods, that doesn't count.

How about News Limited employs these people?

The new team will have unprecedented powers to pursue criminal leads and co-ordinate the role of agencies including Customs, the Australian Federal Police and ASIO.

The planned security blitz allegedly follows embarrassing revelations published in The Un-Australian alleging that baggage handlers and other staff at Sydney Airport had been involved in organised crime.

But like I said how about identifying their sources?

Come on down John HoWARd's tourist industry opposed to the hard working men and women of this country trying to pay off a mortgage or make ends meet, just to survive.

What we need is a national industrial strike!

Government sources deny today's cabinet debate is a knee-jerk response to last week's outcry. That's because no doubt they initiated the material that went to the Un-Australian as per usual. They'd like you to think that the Un-Australian found it - but in reverse, it is more likely than not - the other way around.

It takes the heat of the fascist oppressors the HoWARd Government because they want you to think that it is someone else's finding, that they need to act on. But if the truth, be known the Government is creating the problem.

The Un-Australian: "Well-placed sources said last night that workers with convictions for even minor crimes could be axed, if they had been convicted several times."

A massive stocktake of all airport workers will be undertaken.

"This will be a central attack on criminality at airports," one senior government figure, familiar with the cabinet plan, told The Australian.

And it will cast the net much wider than the present security framework, which focuses on workers suspected of having any links with terrorism.

But it is likely to trigger union criticism that the Government is being over-zealous in preventing anyone with a criminal conviction from working in sensitive transport areas.

While cabinet will focus on cleaning up airport security, the Government is also likely to extend the crackdown to the nation's ports.

Deputy Prime Minister Anderson's plan will make it harder for people to obtain an Aviation Security Identity Card if they have been charged with a range of medium-level offences.

Conviction for minor crimes could see workers banned from working around airline baggage and other cargo.

Mr Anderson admitted last week that the Government needed to tighten up who worked at airports."

The bullshit from Anderson reported in the Un-Australian about what the community wants?

The Un-Australian: Anderson: "The community now wants us to look at who is a fit and proper person on those issues of criminality," he said.

But this is what the government wants not what the community wants because the Un-Australian has not given up their sources?

Allegedly, this followed the revelation, in The Australian, that a man who had served eight years in jail for drug smuggling was still working at Sydney Airport.

The Government is the problem

THE Un-Australian: A "classified Customs report" also"

They mean along the Un-Australian's Revelations?

The Un-Australian:
"cited many workers convicted of lesser crimes including vehicle thefts, car re-birthing, escaping from custody and firearm offences."

But all those revelations came from the government itself and not the Un-Australian surely?

Now every time the pro-government media says something is wrong and - the government reacts to it like they have to - then you know damn well that it is the government's intention all along - only now they have to invest little time convincing you -because you think you need it, according to the Un-Australian - whose plan is to undermine Australia for the corporate US giants.

The Un-Australian:
"About 50 workers have been removed from airports, or denied an ASIC clearance, under a sweep prompted by fears of a terrorist attack. But cabinet will consider a more fundamental crackdown on criminal behaviour, less than a fortnight since the conviction of Schapelle Corby for drug smuggling in Bali.

An international security expert is likely to oversee the review of ASIC holders and the introduction of the tougher rules.

The Government has been under pressure from Qantas chief executive Geoff Dixon and Sydney Airport boss Max Moore-Wilton to tighten up criminal checks?

Qantas revealed last week that Sydney and Brisbane joined Mumbai as the only airports in its network of 100 major destinations that did not have a permanent uniformed police presence dedicated to community policing and crime prevention.

Mr Moore-Wilton renewed the pressure yesterday when he told Sydney radio that ASIC checks concentrating on terrorism but not crime had pointed to a "big gap in practical thinking".

An ex-crim is not an honest person?

"You can't separate them," he said. "The public and, certainly I -- and I know Geoff Dixon as well -- want honest people working at the airport so that the general public can feel they are safe and they don't have 'criminals' handling or tampering with their baggage."

And I suppose they don't want 'ex-criminals' taking a funking holiday either? He did mean 'ex-criminals' didn't he?

And another job bites the dust

Mr Moore-Wilton who is not working along side HoWARd? Said authorities had to make sure people with "a criminal record or criminal intent" did not work at airports. He said the identity card system had to be made foolproof.

Now they have criminal intent? So we have ex-criminals, criminals, and now people with criminal intent, sound familiar? Does he tune in to CH/10 thriving on CRIMINAL INTENT ON SUNDAY NIGHTS?

THE UN-AUSTRALIAN: "Aviation sources have raised concerns that criminal checks for the cards do not go far enough, have a 10-year limit on crimes that can be considered and do not require applicants to be fingerprinted.

Asked about reports that workers could easily use the cards to swipe other people through security gates, Mr Moore-Wilton said: "That's not acceptable. And, I think, we've got to get the police to get their act together."
