  • I watched the final segment on YouTube and frankly I thought that if our senate ie Ms Mckenzie’s behaviour, manner and attitude was the best that our country can accommodate then God help us. I thought that she was subjective, vindictive, sarcastic and just out to scored points. The panel members each side of her were certainly not productive towards to enquiry-

  • In addition to watching the above, I also watched the QF CEO and the JQ CEO on YouTube being “interviewed” by in particular Senator Tony Sheldon. Seriously, whatever your views on the performance of these 2 CEO’s the Senator showed nothing but anger, vitriol and total subjective disrespect for them both. When the Chair has to advise the Senator to let the attendees answer the questions unhindered then for sure the Senator has a problem and is out of order. With respect, may I please advise Senator Sheldon that he is no longer a union official but an elected member of the Senate in the Australian Government and he should conduct himself with the appropriate manner and decorum; – his actions/manner in the interview mentioned above in my view certainly didn’t enhance his public image and gain him the respect needed of his office stewardship.
