Unionist sacked from the ALP for driving a hard bargain in negotiations with employers.

That's terrible.

Clearly only the bosses should be able to bully their workforce, and not the other way around.

The Australian has had three days of anti-union, anti-Mighell headlines. Can someone tell them that people have stopped listening to their shrill anti-labor ranting, just as they have stopped listening to John Howard.

All these headlines despite the building industry investigator admitting that Mighell had not broken the law.

He was bragging about driving a hard bargain, and used a little colourful language that wouldn't have made your Grandma blush.

Today, the Australian is still trying to imply that the law was broken. check this.

The headline screams 'ROGUES IN MOVEMENT PROUD TO DEFY THE LAW', but when you read the actual article they say:

'After Kevin Rudd's expulsion of Dean Mighell on Wednesday for his colorful bragging about questionable - albeit legal - industrial tactics, union leaders reckon there would be "blood on the floor" if the same standards were applied to comrades across the union movement.'

Rupert Murdoch wouldn't employ questionable, albeit legal, business tactics would he? Poison pill anyone?

Double standards- no way.

But Dean Mighell is todays martyr to the ALP.

The people's flag is deepest red,
It shrouded oft our martyred dead,
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
Their hearts blood dyed its every fold.

Then raise the scarlet standard high,
Within its shade we'll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We'll keep the red flag flying here...
