About 1998 a 62 yo man was reported missing who was last seen riding high performance motor bike in the Brisbane suburb of Hemmant, a heavily industrialized precinct on the eastern side of Brisbane!
One Saturday afternoon driving on Lytton Road on a notoriously fast section, I change lanes to go around a high performance motor bike going at just two K's over the 60kph speed limit, when I go round him I take a look at who would be taking it so easy on such a powerful machine and see it is an old guy.
The disappearance occurred in the Federal Electorate of Griffith held by Kevin Rudd who served two terms as Australian PM, who resigned from Parliament in November 2013 .. the mature biker was last sighted at the lights at the Hemmant & Tingalpa Road turn off, about two K's from where I had gone round him on Lytton Road.
Maybe there is a motor bike chop shop down that way and he was lured down there by a biker who convinced him to visit, who murdered him for the bike then chopped it and sold it .. research Operation Trident and allegations of police involvement with organized car theft rings, then take a look at the facility where stolen cars are stored after recovery in the Brisbane suburb of Buranda.
By the time I got to the traffic lights whence I was to turn right, I was about half the length of the straight in front .. a scrawny lookin' red haired local boy done up in a straw hat and cut down blue overalls was on the turn off, 'guess he was waitin' for him.
The Day of the Scab .. 20 November 1992, Whyte Island Ferry Terminal Friday - Mason phones from the Union and says there is a job on a ship that had a fire in the engine room at sea, which was moored at an oil terminal at the river mouth, that one should proceed to Whyte Island take the ferry from there to the vessel, go aboard and report to the mate for further instructions.
During the previous communication we had in October that year, one had told him he was expelled from the union and that his life membership was rescinded, citing threats he made to oneself to and other members and his conduct re Pacific Guardian scab affair.
That his conduct was the subject of complaints one had made to variously to Peter Beattie 9 October '92, in his role as PCJC chair as described above, then five grand out of pocket with nothing to show on 6 November to the police re Detectives Kajewski and Doyle at City CIB, telling them of threats, hijacked union elections and murder.
Then on 17 November after disinterest from Kajewski and Doyle to inspector McMenamin at the CJC, one asked Mason what the police had said to him, he replied he had not been questioned by the police at any time regarding any matter whatever, and did one want the job or not.
At the ferry landing was a group of seedy strangers, their leader was a man who identified himself as a member of the Seamen's Union of Australia, who said he and his group were to be going aboard the Australian Achiever to clean up after a fire in the engine room. When asked if any of them had signed articles.
Or intended to sign articles when on board, and of the scope of the work to be performed, he replied they would not be signing articles which would put them under the orders of the Ship's Master, and intended to erect scaffolding, remove and replace any fire damaged material then prepare and paint the fire blackened paintwork.
This person was then told that within the precincts of the Port of Brisbane such tasks were undertaken by Painters and Dockers .. his lips parted and his teeth appeared prominent like the visage of a fresh corpse being consumed by flame, I realized I was in the presence of the Devil.

Decades of bashings and murder, and infiltration by Nancy boys and thugs had led to this, Joe whose nephew Mark Redding was to disappear, set upon on union premises and biffed by two members of the Union's Steerage Committee, then raped with a broom handle by another Committee Member who was later to scab on the Pacific Guardian.
Another member boasted he had raped and murdered Judith and Susan Mackay near Townsville, Queensland in 1970 .. hooting and hollering re the girls vagina's being tight, the others hooting and roaring describing Joe's ordeal.
The SUA scab and his boys were warned theirs and their union’s industrial reputations were then under extreme duress, they were told of the historical imperatives that existed regarding the division of labor on the Australian waterfront.
That they were being used as pawns and scabs, of a systemic campaign of terror, violence and murder being waged against Painters and Dockers, as a result active membership consisted of one man only.
That the treacherous S 193 of The Australian Industrial Relations Act providing de registration, was about to be implemented, and if they wanted to work on the Australian waterfront their responsibility was to belong to the appropriate union.
One scab yells, "you would not have said that twenty years ago," not so my man says I are there any fighters among you, a red haired pony tailed scab was reminded if he should want to put up his fists now was the time. Ed: He was the one waiting by the corner on Lytton Rd when the MB was on his way!
Deja vu at the BLF meetings re the Bell Scaffolding sacking, when the daisies and pansies there talked tough one mug swings his hand toward MT I put a Chinese death lock on him, he nearly wets his pants.
Tony Bigmouth is challenged to put up his dukes and his money, get your scab mates Moxham, Simcoe and Puplett to back you, runs out of the meeting like a dog with his tail between his legs, one mug full of dutch courage and surrounded by scabs says he will knock me out.
Does not try though, might have heard about the hammering I served up to Bob Reed when he threatened Normie, I say "in case you reckon you can tell me who I can talk to, get this."
Or the flogging I dished out to Les Smith, he had run out of the union to the far more lucrative fields of sea going employment in 1985, only corning near the P&D's when someone needed to be bashed, he is bigmouthing it to his rotten cronies and alternately glaring at MT.
Says "you had better get your head out of union business and do not go picking on Bobby Reed," I tell him since he is no longer a member of this union, but a member of the SUA to go and have it out with them, then I smack him around a bit.
At Whyte Island the ferryman refuses MT passage, "I was not going aboard when scabs are on the job anyway," I tell him .. so off the scabs go in the ferry. Next on the scene is Mr Revolting, Peter the scabby shipwright a member of the Waterside Workers Federation.
There to take the next ferry out to the Australian Achiever to complete barge to ship transfers of ship's stores. Work hitherto in this port at least, carried out only by Painters and Dockers or articled seamen.
His droogs were scab dockers who had fed for years on the union, parasites, tradesmen who had abandoned their trades or beached seamen, who had jobs by Bob Mason's good grace.
Who claimed to have voluntarily relinquished P&D union membership and joined the metal workers union, in a scandalous deal brokered by class enemies which was to leave the combined scab forces of the WWF and the SUA free to form the super scab union the Maritime Union of Australia.
Kim Beazley who was Leader of the Federal Opposition thru much of the same period, bearing in mindd the P&D's was a Federally registered Union was a John Le Carre style mole controlled by George Schultz of the United States State Department, who was the author of a press release issued by Beazley paraphrasing Australian Labor Party policy re US nuclear armed warship visits.
The thumbnail at right is Ray Winning who was a product of the Lenin Institute in Moscow, who was Secretary of the P&D's and was likewise a mole, whose role was to "run dead" at crucial times whence the end result would be slavery of the world's workers, I won the election for Secretary upon his demise in 1992.
