It's interesting isn't it? The shadow minister for resources extends his sympathies to the family of Rene Ponce,(who was killed in Norseman yesterday) yet the Minister for Resources is too busy pulling the piss out of everyone else to notice that it may be in good taste to do the same.My husband was killed at the very same mine - an airlegger like Rene (who he may have even worked with) - and these guys generally know how to look after themselves. What gets me is that Norman Moore is no advocate for any mine worker - company maybe - but he's never worked on a mine; he's never known what it's like to lose a loved one.... I understand he'san ex school teacher! How does he represent mine workers in this state? He's too busy trying to focus on the big union takeover - get over it Norman! You fucked that over years ago! Unions are a thing of the past, and that's a huge shame and a reflection on the current climate. I liked when my husband could join with his workmates on a particular issue and voice their opinion - that's not what happens now. "Keep your opinions to yourself". Well guess what? This is Australia! Those of you who think you don't havea voice, think again - you do!
