The Transfield tentacles

The following are just a few examples of the many arms of Transfield. They seem highly favoured by government. The company is undergoing rebranding due to be implemented on 25 September 2015.

    Two days after he accused Fairfax Media and the ABC of trying to “bring the government down”, Mr Dutton has told a radio interview that segments of the media were frustrated and angry the government was having success with Operation Sovereign Borders.

    He’s such an angry ant.

    Eight security guards from Nauru detention centre who attended a recent Reclaim Australia rally and posted a series of anti-Islamic rants on social media, have been stood down and face investigation.

    The group – seven of whom are former Australian Defence personnel – are part of the emergency response team on Nauru and are employed by Wilson Security.

    In pictures posted on Facebook, two of the men, Dan Connors and Beau James, wear T-shirts that proclaim them as “Australian infidel” and “infidel”, respectively.

    Guardian Australia reported another guard, Harley Levanic, had posted a picture of himself on Facebook displaying his new neck tattoo proclaiming himself an infidel.

    James commented on that picture, saying: “Welcome to the gang … well done old son. Looks awesome.”

    Another guard, Dan Connors, linked to a story about a woman beaten to death in Afghanistan with the comment: “Theres [sic] a lot of reasons why I think islam is a disgusting and evil religion … Absolutely disgusting and needs to stay out of our country.”

    When the emergency response team was recruited, part of the job requirement was “cultural sensitivity”.

    Immigration Minister Peter Dutton has been sought for comment.

    And these are the guys that have been given the green light to use whatever force they deem necessary

    “Drinks there on a Wednesday are a regular feature of life at the centre. Thursday is “fly-out day”: workers at the end of their fortnight-long “lag” leave and their replacements arrive, so Wednesday night is a chance to unwind over a few South Pacific lagers.”

    The three guards also were taking tablets of some description according to the woman who was allegedly raped. They gave her one and she passed out and then woke up naked in the bathroom.

    I have not read any comments yet but if some one was good at investigative journalism there is a super story here, for a start I wonder if there are still links to mafia, In mount Isa years ago transfield used to employ all there workers from Italy to be employed at Mt Isa
    the poor bastards were virtually owned by transfield on arriving in Australia and starting work with transfield, they had to pay off there airflight’s pay for the food at transfield barracks pay for lodging at transfield barracks and would spend most of there time working with little time left to play, I am sure deals were done with AWU and other unions, unions and other constructions are well and truly tied together
    I always laugh about this bullshit about the unions and bosses continually at logger heads, they all do deals all the time, but try to prove it
    and there will be a high wall on both sides, the royal commission into union corruption is very careful not to get to the whole truth and nothing but the truth. When the gold mines were all sprouting up late 80’s and during the 90’s, gold company’s went along with the deal
    “only let the AWU be involved and there wont be any strikes” the corruption in the unions now has locked a lot of good people out.
    Parts of the Labour party are up to there necks in corruption, its all about having people employed under the context of doing the right thing by the good old labourer.

    They have their tentacles all across WA in the energy industry, some very dodgy stuff there too.

    When they act up, aim a good sharp kick. A hard kick in the tentacles will send it scuttling.

    Kaye, I suppose you’ve seen the latest – Transfield CEO complaining because Rod Bowers, Anglican priest at Gosford, tells it how it is.

    At this point, let me say that if I were ever inclined to resume my fractured relationship with organised religion, Rod Bowers would be the reason. Go Rod! Have a look at the parish Facebook page for some of the more recent things he’s had to say.

  9. Kaye Lee


    Yes I did notice it. I mentioned it in another article “Who guards the guardians” and I have been speaking to Father Rod on his facebook page.

    I have met him a few times at protests. He is a man I respect. He is very inclusive, welcoming the atheists to lend their voices. His campaign for asylum seekers and same sex marriage has been tireless. His signs are wonderful. He is a very honest unassuming man who just has a passionate sense of justice.

  10. BJWard

    Thanks Kaye. I agree. A great man, who deserves all the support we can give him.

    Bloody Transfield, like a flamin’ octopus! It seems to have its tentacles into all facets of life in Australia & overseas, now! It does seem to me that no matter what “branch” or department or company off shoot they have, there is always drama, lies, “dodgy” dealings & mistrust with Transfield! I wonder why?
