QANTAS bans passenger for supporting asylum seekers

Listen to 2GB interview with passenger who walked off plane carrying asylum seeker.

Note the weak position taken by 2GB interviewer: “It does not matter was your position on asylum seekers is …”

It clearly does matter because QANTAS is supporting government deportation of asylum seekers by flying them out of the country.

Ben Fordham interview with banned QANTAS passenger, Paul Leary.

Superficial reporting, for example, no mention of the union in the report, the stewards on the flight would have been members of the union. QANTAS remains highly unionised.

QANTAS has spent the last year making workers redundant, its management  has lost the plot, made stuping commercial decisions and is willing to deport asylum seekers.

So poor is QANTAS management that during the next economic crisis the flying kangaroo is likely to go under.
