New Satyrical Video posted on YouTube
A new iteration of the movie “Downfall”. Very entertaining yet quite poignant!
Check it out on YouTube:
Steve Davies from APSOzloop (see our links page) has posted the following message:
It’s been a big year for bullying within the Australian Public Service.
We are delighted with Recommendation 8 of the national bullying report where the committee concluded that,
. . . the allegations of misuse of the mental health assessment referral power within the APS that the Committee heard about signify that there is a need to monitor how that power is used and how often there are reviews on the grounds of misuse.
Putting a stop to administrative and managerial excesses more akin to those of a totalitarian regime really should be a ‘no brainer’. Some have compared the current state of affairs to those associated with Stalinist regimes.
Now on the topic of Stalinist regimes (well, sort of), I have received a satirical movie prepared by some very clever people. From time to time I’ve said that many of those targeted for bullying and mobbing are clever, concerned and professional individuals who have dared to raise questions concerning the public service. Especially in relation to management and matters in the public interest.
It’s an appalling state of affairs and Australian Public Service agencies really need to do some serious growing up. So let’s hold the mirror up. What might the increasing calls for change look like to those who subscribe to the cultural attributes that, to greater or lesser degrees, are a feature of most Australian Public Service agencies?
All that being said. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone sat around a very large table and had a chat?
