The culmination of three years of being on the receiving end of Martin and Aleck. Truly revolting human beings
Take it easy Glen and get well soon, your health and family are most important right now, those other bastards will still be there to deal with when you're fit and well. In any case, they are not worth the trouble right now until you are well.

Glen, All the best for a speedy recovery. Your health, your life is the most important and valuable thing you have.

I can concur re Mr A…no point in going further we know of his evil workings.

Having just beat the council in the Supreme Court, to prove my innocence after a BS and false campaign by a hate filled ceo…to remove my lease and hangar. I suffered a brief hospitalisation due severe stress and a cardiac event as a result.
And the perps just swan off on a ratepayer funded holiday. The victim just has to suck it up.

Qld councils are now corpoRATised, and have learnt very quickly like CAsA, the power benefits of that.
To the great detriment of We, the people.. and any democracy that might have existed in local ‘government ‘(sic)

I don't know if I could continue the fight and oppression that you have to date but please take care of yourself and your family!
We stand with you in your fight for justice, real justice, something that has not been seen to date!
Take care of yourself....that is paramount!
All the best!
My thoughts precisely- Glen please look after yourself.

What he said, x 10.

Glen, rest up and get your strength back. Your body has been hammered - mind, heart and spirit.

To the less-than-honorable PM, DPM and CASA CEO/DAS; enough is enough. Do the right thing by this man. Do the morally acceptable thing. Right the wrong. Whether you want to or not, you have the authority and the ability to do the right thing by Glen. You know he has been treated unfairly, without compassion and without human dignity. You know it, Glen and his family know it, and pretty much most of the Australian aviation community know it. Drop your f#cking pride, arrogance and contemptible behaviour and close this circus down once and for all. Hand Glen a cheque and an apology and put this to bed, now.

Reminds me of Cromwell's speech to the Long Parliament, or Leo Amery's to Neville Chamberlain: ''You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing. In the name of God, go!

Perhaps the Senate enquiry into CASA could read Crowell's speech to them when it delivers its findings:

It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice.

Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government.

Ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess?

Ye have no more religion than my horse. Gold is your God. Which of you have not bartered your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defiled this sacred place, and turned the Lord's temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices?

Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation. You were deputed here by the people to get grievances redressed, are yourselves become the greatest grievance.

Your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse this Augean stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings in this House; and which by God's help, and the strength he has given me, I am now come to do.

I command ye therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place.

Go, get you out! Make haste! Ye venal slaves be gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

In the name of God, go!

Do you mayhaps have a few roundheads that can cleanse the halls of this maleficence swept forth from Canberrian lands?

One of my favourite movies is the 1970 movie Cromwell with Richard Harris. It's a bit over-acted in parts but having read a lot about Cromwell, it uses enough of his quotes that are on record to make up for any slight exaggerations in some of the script.......

That event you refer to is acted brilliantly in the movie - one of the 'parliamentarians' says to Cromwell "You can't speak to us like that, we are parliamentarians" to which Cromwell snaps back "YOU are SCUM Sir and a truly unelected scum at that - has this house gone even ONCE to the people it purports to represent.... drunkards, tricksters, villains, whore-masters.... you are no more capable of running the affairs of this nation than you are of running a brothel... this is NO parliament, I shall put an end to your sitting, I hereby declare this parliament DISSOLVED".

Where are you Oliver???? We need you now.......

The word cleanse made me laugh....... one of the writer Gore Vidal's last interviews he talked about his life and the interviewer said "You've done so much in your life" and Vidal observed "Yes, I've done just about everything, although I have never murdered anyone...." The interviewer said "Well, that's a good thing to have left out" to which Vidal replied "Oh, I don't know, I was thinking maybe I could start now, perhaps I'll go to Washington first.... commit some murders there and 'cleanse the republic'"

While Crommie did much during his tenure, when he died no one had the same charisma and fortitude and the Monarchy returned reinstating much of what was dissolved. In a show of how mad the monarchy were, Charles II had the bodies of Cromwell, Ireton and Bradshaw all exhumed and "executed" by being hung and beheaded. Obviously this must have been terrible for them... being executed after being dead for a year or more.

They were probably over the moon wherever they were that they had pissed Charlie off so badly to have them executed post death.

Update

Thanks for the support folks. I was out and about the other day, and down i went with no warning. landed face first and broke the nose in a couple of places and some other bits and pieces. Off to the hospital for a few days and in for a pacemaker tomorrow, and out the day after all going well. Stay tuned because i fully intend to come out fighting like CASA haven't seen before. Im coming for Aleck an Martin, and anybody else in the national Part i.e. our ex Deputy PM who covered up and facilitated this misconduct.

Ive seen my two businesses decimated, forced out of the industry, lost my home. my life savings decimated, I've impacted on far too may people, ive been pushed to the brink of suicide and now had my physical health destroyed. Ive watched Aleck and martin blatantly lie to protect their positions.

And yet, today there is a statue of Oliver Cromwell on the grounds of Parliament at Westminster titled "Cromwell, Our Man of Men" and "Lord Protector of the Commonwealth of England".

I don't recall seeing any statues of Charles or his mongrel son, Charles II - a real scumbag who is right up there with the most corrupt monarchs they ever had (actually, the whole system is corrupt, but that's for another day.......)

I would love to continue the chat on civil war era England, and although some of CASAs dubious cast resemble some of the nefarious characters of the time, I don't want to detract or seem to make lite of Glens work here.

Agreed. I would just add one Cromwell quote which echoes my own view of the 'sanctity of monarchy' - when offered the crown, he refused, when parliamentarians asked 'what shall we do with the crown, Cromwell replied "Worthless trinket, give it to a wh--e for the price of her bed" - very, 17th Century and not appropriate by today's higher standards of speech but it does sum up all the nonsense that surrounds divine right and an overbearing executive.

As Samuel Clements (aka Mark Twain) said: "Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often AND for the SAME reason......."

One thing is for certain Glen; you would make a horrible CASA employee! You are fair, reasonable, upright, honest and empathetic. You do not appear to be a narcissist, sociopath or bully. So that pretty well precludes you from working for CASA.

Glen, build up your strength for the continuation of the fight, but make sure you take time out to go for a drive (COVID permitting) and go smell some country air or sea air, watch a few sunsets and throw the dog a few mangled tennis balls. It’s important to fine tune that mind and still be able to take in some of this incredible country’s beauty. Those things can’t be taken from you.

Nor can your integrity be taken from you. It is the mortar of the soul.

Get well Glen

Been a bit busy with aroa, dealing with the recalcitrant Mareeba Shire Council

See Facebook groups Mareeba Airport.

If a couple of country dudes beat Council and its QC. It can be done Glen.

We all are in this fight, like it or not.

TRUTH will out.

Please go careful with such announcements. Ive just come out of hospital with a heart issue. I cant handle so much potential good news in the one day. I am actually just putting some finishing touches to a letter. to Mr Craig Martin. Will hold off. Hopefully i can direct my energies to the one remaining individual, Mr Jonathan Aleck. The man actually responsible for the legislative mess for the last decade. Very keen on any updates. Cheers. Glen.
