Sounds like someone could see what was wrong, but when he tried to tell them they rail roaded him.......sounds familiar. If it is the one I know of.... then this is just the tip of the ice burg......It is the same M.O. over and over again....blatant incompetence covered up by vicious protect themselves.

We need a public, transparent enquiry into the whole industry. Too long has it been overseen by arrogant self servers, incompetent ones at that.

They would not stand up to scrutiny by a REAL IMPARTIAL TRANSPERANT ENQUIRY
You can't choose who you are.....but you are the sum of your choices.......

The person that unitec sacked is very good at his job. He will help you if you listen and ask questions, but be an arse....he just won't waste his time.
