James Hardie - the video and audio

Matt Peacock's interview on today's Radio National Breakfast is here.

Gee it's worth a listen.

I learned that James Hardie even stole its name. It has no connection with the loved yachtsman, winemaker and republican Sir James Hardie.

It sought out older Australians as workers because it thought they would die before their asbestosis became apparent.

The video of Matt's Monday 7.30 Report story is here. Click on broadband or dial-up at the right of the screen.

Or click on this link. It should start the video immediately.

Man, that is evil.

isn't it interesting that when some photographer publishes some pictures of a naked teenager or the cops nab some bearded religeous bufoons attempting to implement their deluded beliefs,kevin and malcolm elbow each other out of the way to get to a microphone to utter some theatricaly outraged comments,but on this issue,nothing.could that silence be the nonsound of an old boys network closing ranks?

Of course it is. When have white collar criminals ever been successfully punished?
