Part 2 of Hylton Hayes & Eva Lawler ‘Coffees for Contracts’ scandal
Boundless Corruption & Incompetents
FROM HERO TO ZERO!
WHAT WERE THEY FIGHTING FOR?
Thanks to people such as Hylton Hayes and Eva Lawler our country and especially the Northern Territory is being perceived as more corrupt. Sure we love a sunburnt country but one free of the stench of corruption. And it all boils down to values. Australia is supposedly a country that is built on something called mateship and the fair go but is this really true?
A few years ago we watched an interesting video about a World War Two digger who talks about his wartime experiences in Timor. It was an interesting story and one that we at Cardfightback found really touching. The story has the whole kit, the will to live, help from strangers and his survival. And as Australians with similar values to that digger we were proud that he had defended Australia and survived despite his ordeal.
In 1943 The Daily News in Perth Western Australia expressed a similar opinion.
The Daily News Friday 29 January 1943 page 7 (Perth)
Was Left For Dead In Timor
Ambushed by Japanese in Timor, fired on, bayoneted, left for dead, Private Keith Hayes, of Perth, is still alive to tell the tale.
And what a tale he has to tell-of Japanese ferocity; of native courage and loyalty; of comradely generosity.
Many of my team colleagues at CFB have been constantly holding me back from taking a more personal look into the morals and values of the people who constantly churn through the blog. I think morals and values are really important. They simply would not believe me it was the same Hayes, that is why I had to get photos.
Now back to our digger, a young man back in the days of WW2 fighting to defend Australia against the Empire of Japan and the other Tripartite Pact signatories. What was he fighting for? Usually there will answers like freedom, tyranny, a fair go or democracy. Not usually surprising answers. But the digger believes in a fair go not doing dodgy stuff.
To my shock I later discovered that this digger was the father of Hylton Hayes. I was gobsmacked, taken aback in disbelief, how could this be? But alas it is true. Check out the same insipid rodent-like look on his face:
What happened to the fair go and other great Australian values? It is not the fair go but who you know. Something went wrong back in Perth during the 1950’s and 60’s during young Hylton Hayes’s formative years. Perhaps he was bullied at school or never got that good flogging he really deserved around the back of the toilet block. Whatever something really went wrong from the generation of the digger to young Hylton.
Taking short cuts, getting away with things and turning a blind eye were all part and parcel of the life of the remote teacher in mid- 1970’s Western Australia. Young Hylton was in his element eventually being his own boss and getting rapidly promoted even though he probably did not deserve to be and he had got away with a host of things. He was on the up, he was doing virtually what he wanted and to boot getting away with it all. His motto, fuck you I am alright and I will ensure that you are royally fucked. And what might seem a joke his initials are HRH. Certainly he was using those initials back in the 1960’s but a class mate from the era swears blind that he deliberately changed the order of his names to get those initials.
By the time he reached Ross Park he was up to every trick in the book. Was he really the great principal he is painted to be a few? It seem he was not. There were a string of complaints from parents and a couple of scandals. He really needed a change as things has started to develop cracks and it so happened that a Margaret Banks had become CEO of the NT Department of Education he knew Margaret from way back.
Like a lone horse in a million hectares he could run free but in reality ran amok.
And it boils down to the values that he does not have.
Just a few pointers:
A principal slaps a teacher. The teacher makes a complaint to Hayes. He does nothing. What should he have done was contacted the police.
A principal makes threats to her staff. A complaint was made to Hayes. He contacts his superior telling another story then places all of the staff complaining on performance plans. He should have suspended the principal immediately.
A teacher complains about misconduct by other teachers in a school. Hayes instructs the school principal to put the teacher who complains on a performance plan and tells the principal about a closed police investigation involving the teacher which the principal tries to open again.
A teacher applies for leave and it is granted she is 22 years old and not actually entitled to the leave but Hayes approves it but a week later denies a 54 year female leave she is entitled to.
A teacher is accused of sexual like conduct with students; a teacher is concerned about the behaviour of this teacher. Instead of making a mandatory report or suspending the teacher under investigation immediately Hayes gets the principal of the school to investigate. Teacher goes on to abuse other kids.
Hayes based in two regions in the NT and at no time during his tenure did attendance ever increase because of anything he did. Why? Simple he does not have any skill with communities, families or children. He does not actually engage with people. He pretends to engage but only superficially and when it starts to go wrong he pretends to be a man of the people (mucking in, helping out but it is never genuine).
I guess back in the 1940’s there were also sherkers who profited from their cronies while others did the fighting.
‘An entitled, delusional and egotistical so-called contractor’
Hylton Hayes is a consultant only in name. His association with Eva Lawler is the driving force behind his business model. And it is a model that apparently works well. Mr Hayes like so many political sycophants is nothing but an entitled, delusional and egotistical so-called contractor. But being friends with the Minister responsible means you don’t have to care about your obvious lack of ability or experience.
The Australian Government spends millions of dollars each year either fighting corruption or advising other countries about the virtues of good governance yet at home we are doing the exact opposite.
The Northern Territory has the highest rate of corruption per capita in Australia. The Gunner Government despite bringing in an ICAC continues the traditions of the previous Giles lead CLP Government. The pigs certainly have their noses in the public trough.
The situation with Hayes may be totally legal but corruption is all pervasive and whilst something may be strictly legal it does mean that it is right. There are always jokes about Masonic handshakes but the situation in the NT is no joke.
There must be transparency and there must be open tender processes, not let’s call a mate and hire them. What about other educational consultants? What about value for money? And our politicians either engage in this behaviour or turn a blind eye to it.
Mr Hayes is being called out because he apparently believes in taking shortcuts to get what he wants while others follow the rules. Yet this same Mr Hayes expects everyone else to play by the rules. Your silence is telling Hylton! (And your wife’s pussy puddle is still funny!) 🙂 🙂 🙂
More coming very soon…….
