Fake government outrage over NBN asbestos

Shorten orders summit to tackle asbestos ‘scourge’

This is fake outrage.  The Minister goes on to say “Asbestos is a giant scourge in this country. We cannot afford to be complacent. The menace that asbestos represents in Australia is not over”.

Well, the government should know, it put the asbestos in the ground.  It wasn’t the big nasty company James Hardie that installed this asbestos, it was the Australian Government!  Remember, it was the government who ran the telecommunications system when the asbestos was bought and installed.

Now they act surprised when it is “discovered”.

Hi, Thank you for taking a look at this blog. I work in engineering, ergonomics, creativity, design, training, etc. Often this is about helping solve legal puzzles through accident analysis. Sometimes it is about thinking up better designs for equipment, workplaces, and systems. This blog is about good design and bad design, accident analysis and how it can be done better, and how we can make a better, safer world by design!
