I VENTURED ,I GAINED EXPERIENCE IN BUSINESS FOR USE IN LATER LIFE ?24 May at 23:58 from atlas
ATTENTION THE PREMIER OF VICTORIA, Mr DENNIS NAPTHINE.
DEAR PREMIER,I was sadened to hears that some moths ago that the NATIONAL BUS CONTRACT was not renewed with VENTURA BUS LINES.
I am equally concerned that the new operator is a multi national company VEOLIA,who is a world wide multi functional company.
Veolia were previous operators of our rail system in Victora and that company was called CONNEX,and according to to its critics it failed to deliver the goods.
I started my own business at the age 7 years,and my first real job was with H C SLEIGH LTD. the owners of GOLDEN FLEECE PETROLEUM,where I started as an office boy whilst I hated studying.I didn't need to study because I gained so much knowledge about business at this company about sales ,ethics governance,and finance .
I worked in industrial sales,advertising,and accounts;it was at this company that I met the founding families of VENTURA GRENDA,SITA,and other transport companies and quarry masters and their offshoots in road contruction.
For those who don't know GOLDEN FLEECE was instumental in financing the growth of all these companies,thru rebates on their fuel and oil purchases.
At 17 years of age I was so proud to meet these adventurers that made VICTORIA what it is today.
VENTURA,has invested so much into PUBLIC TRANSPORT,and as a good operater it has merged other operators into its business model to gain more efficencies in the transport industry.
VENTURA IS A MELBOURNE COMPANY,and a VICTORIA COMPANY,one that should be treated with respect,because of its proud employees,and many skills ;why would a company like VENTURA,take over GRENDA,another mover and shaker,well maybe the price was right,but really both companies could see the benifits of a large operation.
Both are ICONS,with many trusted employees .
It begs the question,who was "the fruitcake,who recommended the contract be changed to VEOLIA,as operator,a company with a poor record of performance ,a proven poor record in performance,WHY ?"
Just today we VICTORIANS are coming to terms with the FORD DEBACLE,another further addendum to GMH,ALCOA,SHELL,who going to be next;as all GOVERNMENTS PROP UP THESE BUSINESSES IN PSEUDO FASHION, so eventually they take the money and run.
Well there was a victory of sorts in the Courts today,when the CFMEU,were possibly brought to account,but it really begs the question what are those responsible in both sides of PARLIAMENT,communicating with ALL VICTORIANS,and saying to these multinational companies,GET OUT OF AUSTRALIA,WE WILL LET YOUR BUSINESS BE NATIONALISED and then SAY TO ALL THE WORKERS and AUSTRALIANS,now you run these companies.
WHY ARE GOVERNMENTS LETTING FOREIGN COMPANIES COME IN AND TAKE OVE EVERY THING AUSTRALIANS HAVE BUILT UP.
YOU HAVE THE LEADERSHIP SKILLS,and I won't be LIBERAL IN MY CRITICISM,and I WON'T LABOR ON MY PRAISE for anyone,because we are fools to think AMERICA,and other INDUSTRIAL TERRORISTS are here to help us with their SWEET TALK.
THEY KNOW THEY CAN MILK THIS COUNTRY OF OURS DRY,because we let them for one reason :
YES AND THAT IS OUR OWN GREED AND COMPLACENCY;even blind freddy can see that ,and even myself with my ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY can see that ttttttttttto !
MR PREMIER,would you please reply but first acknowledge reciept of this letter and advise as to when I will reieve a reply,
regards paul slattery
enjoy the chase,and CARPE DIEM
