Lighter note: Opponents play nice for cameras

ATTENDEES of a recent Master Builders Association function could well have thought they had entered a parallel universe, as this happy snap suggests. The Note was there to witness Australian Building and Construction Commission deputy commissioner Nigel Hadgkiss wearing braces, while Construction Forestry Mining & Energy Union WA secretary Kevin Reynolds wore a jacket. The pair sandwiched the MBA’s construction director Kim Richardson for a feisty on-stage panel session, though the panellists preferred bad jokes to punches as they aired their opposing views on the value of the ABCC. Serial heckler Joe McDonald got into the act and The Note couldn’t resist using this picture of the union heavyweight and his nemesis Nigel Hadgkiss (above) in the green room after the show.
