  2. You couldn't make it up!!!!!!! Apparently the UK is breaching their Human Rights.:yes: 2 test cases have gone to the European court of human rights and even though they are in prison for Robbery, Burglary, dealing in class A drugs and Threats to kill, the UK have been told they can't deport them.:mad: There are another 214 Somali's also who were awaiting the outcome of this court case, some who have committed the most horrendous crimes and the UK government can't send them back either and i think to myself ............... Just how much does it take for us to say to Europe ................. ? Please feel free to put in the last few words if you can, mine are unprintable.:arghh:
  3. New laws under which workplace bullies will be imprisoned for up to 10 years have been welcomed by the family of a 19-year-old woman who committed suicide after being tormented by workmates. Damien Panlock, father of Brodie, who jumped to her death in 2006 after being victimised by colleagues at Cafe Vamp in Hawthorn, said the laws won’t bring Brodie back but legislation that protects young workers is "never too late". "This is Brodie’s legacy," Mr Panlock told The Age. "If someone else can be protected from scum like these people, and they know that they are going to be charged, and they are going to have jail time, they might think twice." Attorney-General Robert Clark is expected to table the Crimes Amendment (Bullying) Bill, 2011, in Parliament on Thursday. A government spokesperson said the Baillieu Government would amend stalking legislation to include workplace and cyber bullying. Mr Panlock has worked closely with the Brumby and Baillieu governments on framing the laws, but said he would reserve his final judgment until he saw the legislation. He said he would get advice on whether the laws cover the "grey areas . . . which are part and parcel of why these people haven’t been charged over Brodie". "Our family has been fighting to (have workplace bullying the subject of criminal charges for a year plus," he said. "We haven’t been sitting on our hands." "When you assault someone, that’s a criminal charge, isn’t it? Brodie was assaulted, physically, and there are witnesses. "Nothing’s ever too late ... If this can save someone else’s family ... in the future, if the law is good enough for that, fine. But if it’s not, it doesn’t mean a thing does it?" Victoria Police have not charged the men responsible for bullying Brodie. Victorian Attorney-General Robert Clark said today that "serious bullying was a serious crime" and should carry a significant jail term. "These changes will put beyond doubt that the terrible suffering inflicted on Brodie Panlock will constitute the offence of stalking and carry a jail term of up to 10 years," he told 3AW. Mr Clark said Victorian families were "entitled to be confident" that young workers were protected from victimisation at work. "These changes should give parents confidence that their children can start out in the workforce without being victim to this terrible bullying."

    Jail sentence

    :unsure: I have filled out my visa application through an agent. I have a 12 month custodial sentence for assualt 10-12 years ago (this was on my application ). I am a bit worried i might be refused for this although my agent thinks things will be ok. It was when i was young and stupid the area i lived is was rough with alot of fighting. I moved away from there 10 years ago and now run my own business have a big house a lovely partner and 3 beautiful girls with not a bit of trouble in sight. Can anyone give me their thoughts on this please. Many Thanks
  5. Great Train robber Ronnie Biggs released from prison sentence - Times Online Just my two cents here and others may disagree but I reckon it's about time too, this man is no threat to society and when you can kill someone and get 15 years these days as has happened recently,then I think it's fair to say,again just my opinion that Biggs has paid a high enough price for his crimes. I in no way excuse his actions or his crimes but I think he has paid his debt to society. I hope he is able to have the rest of his life with his family.
