The common threads that run through the majority of the Greens is one of ignorance and stupidity.....A pity really because a small number of them actually have a sane brain and might one day do some good for this country.....But I doubt it.
She says she has done her research. If that were true then she could not say or suggest what she has.

Maybe she could do some research into who's blood was spilt first in Australia..... long before Cook arrived here. The facts are there for anybody to discover.....Just do a bit of research.

I've got a feeling now that this story could be bogus. But to be sure I am contacting this Green member Emmeline Chidley for her comments.

I just got a message from a person that also contacted the Greens member Emmeline Chidley about the article. And this is the reply that person got. I've kept the name of the person who received the message blank.

The message reads :-
This message is from Emmeline, it was her response to my message a few days ago...

Hey ..........., my phone has just started notifying me of a satirical article being shared with false statements in its content. I have never made any statements about the Eureka Flag. The page that created that article is a nonsensical local online publication that posts false articles. I have a great amount of respect for the Eureka flag and am completely aware of its significant history. Sorry that you believed otherwise, I will try and put a stop to article before more are offended by statements that I have never made.

Well if that was Emmeline Chidley's reply Wombat, declaring the statements as false, statements that she herself never made & as she states, she is well aware of the significance of the Eureka Flag & holds it in great respect, now do who we believe?  We should not be so quick to point the finger about any written article, without absolute fact.
It's getting to the stage where it's hard to believe anything we read or hear these days, on or through social media, because of the great amount of either withheld information & or distortion/twisting of the facts, that constantly take place.

I agree Kon (and yours to Flyspecks). When you first read the report the first thing you think of is "that is typical of the Greens and how brain dead they really are". Knowing how the Greens don't like us prospector and want us out of the bush, this would be a good way to try and turn a lot of people against us who don't know the true story about the Eureka Flag and the Eureka stockade and it's important part it played in Australian history. I hope that Miss Chidley can do something about this for her sake, as the report reflects back on her and what she stands for.

Totally agree Kon, the days of the hand shake sealing the deal are gone. Nothing but lies and deception. Remember when a photograph told the truth, even that has gone with photo shopping.
Fortunately we have spam protection from the multitudes of junk mail. ITunes, Bitcoin etc etc
Sold my boat months back because of constant thieves stealing my cray pots. 5 days later the front page news showing a photo of my ex boat on a trailer being confiscated by the Fisheries, the new owner caught stealing cray pots????

 Australian Services Union delegate Tim Sullivan said the ban was not only of concern to people working in construction.

“Once they’ve hamstrung them, what’s next?” he said.

A short history lesson and the true meaning about the Eureka Flag, our Flag. :- www.ausflag.com.au/eureka.asp

Eureka Flag

Little women  Eureka
Flag Adopted: No legal status, in use since 1854

The Eureka Flag is thought to have been designed by a Canadian gold miner by the name of "Lieutenant" Ross during the Eureka Stockade uprising in Ballarat, Victoria, in 1854.
According to Frank Cayley′s book Flag of Stars the flag′s five stars represent the Southern Cross and the white cross joining the stars represents unity in defiance. The blue background is believed to represent the blue shirts worn by many of the diggers, rather than represent the sky as is commonly thought.
The flag above is considered to be the Eureka Flag (a number of variants seem to have existed), as it is the design of the flag torn down at the stockade by Police Constable John King on the morning of the miners′ uprising - Sunday, 3 December 1854. The torn and tattered remains of this flag is kept at the Eureka Centre near where the battle was fought.
The "Eureka Stockade" uprising was essentially a short-lived revolt by gold miners against petty officialdom and harassment by a corrupt Police force, who would often ask miners to show their gold digging licences several times a day. The miners also objected to the high cost of the licences.
Led by Peter Lalor, who later became a respected Victorian MP and Minister, the Eureka uprising was a spectacular failure in a military sense. The revolt had its roots in the killing of a miner, James Scobie, by a publican. An inquest was held, but despite the evidence of miners, no conclusion was made about who was responsible. Instead, the miners who pressed for the arrest of the publican were taken into custody.
This sparked protests by the miners who held many public meetings, and sought to take the law into their own hands by seeking out the publican and burning down his hotel. When the culprits were arrested and imprisoned, the situation in the goldfields became explosive and expanded to cover general discontent with unequal laws and unequal rights.
The miners elected Lalor to lead them, and they built a stockade at the goldfields to defy the authorities. It was at this time the Eureka flag first appeared. Within a few days, a military force of about 300 men had assembled to attack the Stockade, and within 15 minutes of the commencement of the attack, had smashed the stockade and killed many of the rebels.

Today, the Eureka flag is often used as a symbol of rebellion against authority by people at the extreme left and the extreme right of the political spectrum in Australia. It has been used in marches by neo-Nazis on the one hand and draped over the coffins of deceased Communists on the other.

The PMAV is not happy that the Union Workers have hijacked the Eureka Flag and have put their stance and meaning to the flag and not the true meaning of what it represented back in 1853. They are calling it their flag now. I know it represents unity and to fight as one. But now our flag is more recognised as a union flag than a united flag designed and fought under by miners and free men back in 1853.
Don't get me wrong I'm not a union basher. I believe in unions and what they stand for. I have been a union rep on many a construction site and belonged to AMWU for most of my working life. But I wish they would use their own union flags and not the Eureka Flag to represent the union.

 We have flown the Eureka Flag (our flag) at many a PMAV displays and events and I have heard people say we must be unionist or from the union as we were flying the union flag. They are starting to give the Eureka Flag the wrong meaning, history wise. and what it represents. What a lot of people don't know is that our present day Australian Flag was designed from the idea of the Eureka Flag. That is were the stars came from. The Southern Cross on our Australian Flag is the same Southern Cross that was on the Eureka Flag but with a slightly different slant on it.

It always annoys me when I see unions flying the Southern Cross. But not just the unions, I often see it being displayed in various ways by Bikie outlaw gangs, by green activists and others. Not much we can do about it but it still annoys me every time I see it. I have actually chatted some bikies about it and one I know will no longer use the Southern Cross now he knows its history.

Cheers, Jim
