Perhaps John Setka is just “misunderstood”.

June 11, 2019


Hate him or hate him John Setka is set to be booted from the Australian Labor Party when it meets next month after a chequered history of controversy culminating in remarks he made recently about ant-violence campaigner Rosie Batty.

The Victorian secretary of the CFMEU has been under fire after he told a union meeting that men had “fewer rights” because of Ms Batty’s work.

Ms Batty’s role as a campaigner began in 2014 after her 11-year-old son Luke Batty was murdered by his father Greg Anderson.

Batty’s personal story of domestic violence and the murder of her son Luke by her ex-partner received widespread public and media attention.

She became an advocate for domestic violence survivors and victims, and sought to address perceived systemic failures in responses to domestic violence in Australia. She has spoken about a lack of communication between services, about public perceptions of domestic violence, about a lack of funding, and about police and legal procedures that she felt disempowered her ability to protect herself and her son.

Batty was appointed 2015 Australian of the Year, awarded the Pride of Australia’s National Courage Medal in 2014, awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of the Sunshine Coast, and was ranked number 33 in the list of the World’s Greatest Leaders 2016 by Fortune magazine.

Despite his affable demeanour, The Gutter Trash can also reveal that a former deputy president of the Fair Work Commission gave a statement to police alleging that Mr Setka repeatedly intimidated and terrified a woman over several months.

Police analysis of Mr Setka’s phone activity reveals on a single evening last October, he called the woman 25 times and sent her 45 text messages, calling her a “weak f—en piece of shit” and a “treacherous Aussie f—en c—” and a “f—en dog”.

Apparently Setka will plead guilty to charges of harassing a woman.

However Setka insists his comments about Rosie Batty were “taken out of context”.

Witnesses at a national executive meeting of the CFMEU Construction last week said Mr Setka had repeatedly told them he had “nothing to be ashamed of”.

They say he spoke uninterrupted and at length, insisting he could not be blamed for Labor’s federal election loss as he had bowed to pressure to go on long-term leave during the campaign due to his criminal charges.

He told the meeting that Labor could “suck me off”.




Election Night Special!

‘End Of Life As We Know It’: Kerri-Anne Predicts Global Apocalypse if Labor win!

May 15, 2019



One-time celebrity show queen and now disgruntled embittered middle-aged hag Kerrie-Anne Kennerley has issued a dire warning for Australia and “the rest of the world” claiming that a Bill Shorten – Labor win this Saturday night will “end life as we know it.”

The once popular celebrity made the startling prediction on Channel Ten’s “Studio 10” daytime chat show earlier today claiming that no one will be spared from the global death and devastation that will be unleashed across the planet [as early as next week].

The bizarre tirade began innocently enough but exploded into a doomsday prophecy when the conversation turned to gender dysphoria.

The veteran host, 64, immediately slammed Labor’s plan to set up a taxpayer-funded National Gender Centre.

‘One thing I’m seriously outraged about, the millions and millions they’ll spend on a Gender Commission,’ Kennerley said.

‘These kids out there who are gender confused, and there’s a percentage of people out there gender confused, they will put up this Commission and we, like Tasmania, will have a child and it won’t be male or female, it will be gender-free.

‘That’ll be national.’

Kennerley was referring to Tasmania’s new policy of making gender optional on birth certificates – although Mr Shorten has said he will not implement this nationally.

Ms Kennerley also attacked Mr Shorten’s economic policies, including his proposed changes to the way profits from shares are taxed.

She admitted that she had to ‘google’ what franking credits were but went on to criticise Mr Shorten’s planned changes to them anyway.

‘Taking money retrospectively, as they will do, that franking credits, I had to google that, this is the way (for) self-funded retirees not to leach off the government pension.

‘They look after themselves. They’ve got a plan. He’s going to rip that off them.’

She also criticised Mr Shorten’s plan to remove tax breaks for property investors.

‘He’ll put in negative gearing… no more investment into houses so your rent will go up.’



It’s On: Election 2019!

And people say that Twitter is just an “echo chamber”

Here’s a chap who was suggesting that George Pell was about to expose financial corruption at the the Catholic Church and so the criminal charges were a “set up” and “payback” by the Church hierarchy…
