Alliance attends

Last updated on June 24th, 2017 at 10:30 am

Another fascinating individual attending Kevin Rudd’s Summit of the Super Friends:

Elena Jeffreys is the president of Scarlet Alliance, the Australian sex workers’ association. She will participate in the “Security and future prosperity” stream of the 2020 summit.

“Scarlet Alliance” … that’s not a bad name for the summit itself.

    1. The health, safety and human rights of the migrant sex workers in Australia must be prioritised.

      Certainly a big talking point in my working family. For too long we have concerned ourselves with trivial matters such as: interest rates, job security and national defence. I demand the rights of illegal Filipino sex workers be prioritised.

    1. That’s right Infidel Tiger! Clearly we’d all be better off talking to our children about interest rates, job security and national defence.  Forget health, education and emotional well-being.

      Gee I wish you were my Dad.

    1. #5 Alexander H. I could be jumping the gun but I think it’s clear Infidel T is being facetious about the summit prioritising the needs of Filipino sex workers over what he thinks are more important issues.

      But you may have missed that while having your nappie changed.

    1. #5. Alex.

      How dare you suggest that health and education is more important than imported Thai hookers!

      As for emotional well being, that’s likely to become a ministry in its own right if you milksop, bleeding heart, perpetually anguished, needlessly conflicted lefty males have anything to do with it.

      Posted by Penguin on 2008 04 07 at 03:36 AM • permalink

 

    1. #9 – we already have a Minister for Social Inclusion (Gillard) so I think the Department of Emotional Well-being should probably report to her.

    1. There was an Elena Jefferys who ran as a Green in WA against then Premier Richard Court back in 2001. She campaigned solely on the basis she was an former heroin addict. This jefferys was remembered for having green hair but campaigned as a redhead. The Scarlett Alliance’s Jeffreys had green hair in the photo the SMH ran last week. Likely the same person. Addict, Green candidate and hooker are all ideal qualifications for Kev’s 2020, especially when her special subject is national security. I feel safer already.

    1. Health, education and emotional well-being. Of illegal Filipino sex workers. (Such as Alex?) Sorry. Al seems to have a romanticized view of prostitutes, a not uncommon misconception. Prostitutes from time immemorial have achieved health, education, and emotional well-being by leaving the profession and achieving those things, like the rest of us. Key phrase here, “leaving the profession.”

    1. So sex workers participating in the security and future prosperity of Australia at the 2020 summit.  But how will they assist?  I suppose we’ll need a post conference survey of attendees, but #3 I think you’ve hit the nail on the head with “2020 Scores Summit Meeting”.

      But the real test will be to see if they register on my new little Global Incident Map that some Environmental Insurance Joker sent me today with these sweet words: Please accept this Internet gift from us (see below for Global Incident MAP tracking Environmental Pollution and extreme world issues and updated DAILY).

      Wow! What a fabulous little map – I’m really impressed – I can sit and remain alarmed at all sorts of things across the world and it’s updated daily!  Hey, just a minute someone’s left off glowball warning.  Ah never mind, I’m sure something will happen when Krudd returns.

    1. #18 A magic ring with special powers, kae?

      I heard that some of those Thai sex workers can blow smoke rings in strange and surprising ways. That’s sure to raise some OH&S issues that would help keep the Scarlet Alliance’s input relevant at the summit.

      “That’s right Infidel Tiger! Clearly we’d all be better off talking to our children about interest rates, job security and national defence.  Forget health, education and emotional well-being.Gee I wish you were my Dad.”Because I expect my children to be at the 2020 summit being cared for by the attendees, I fully endorse this otherwise patently nonsensical comment. Indeed, what do we pay our politicians for, if not to provide a warm, nurturing home environment… and engaging party games for the amusement of children?

      Damn. Sorry. I slipped off pure wide-eyed irony and into proper sarcasm- again.

      If Elena Jefferys had been an ex-addict and a member of Labor party there is no telling how far she could have risen. Michael Coutts-Trotter, the NSW Director of Education is evidence of that.

      On the subject of Coutts-Trotter, it is interesting to note that a year after his controversial appointment the big topic in NSW education is the “racist” white (and Asian) flight from incompetent and dangerous state schools. Why only today.

    1. Erm, I’m not sure what various representatives from either Makati or Soi Patpong can bring to the table on either security or future prosperity unless they are leading the luncheon break table dancing with a few lappies thrown in the for the lucky attendees.

      Are the back stalls cheaper?Will there be a video to commemorate the occasion – ‘Big Kev from Queens-slammed submits to Summits the wenches from the Crimson Alliance’; Bob Brown in support: ‘A Personal Journey down Cadbury Lane’?

    1. I think we have found Rudd’s law ie, a direct relationship between the amount of consultation with diverse and marginalised groups and the level of their illegal activities.

      Don’t believe me?

      How about the Governmental inaction on various Islamic practices such as the eschewing of monogomy or the embracing of female circumcision?

      Rudd’s law in action.

    1. At my workplace last week there was an all-day executive/management meeting in the boardroom. There were trays of fruit, cheeses, crackers, and paté laid out for those in the boardroom, and identical platters laid out for the rest of the staff (not involved in the meeting).

      As the two sets of platters were carried to their destinations, a colleague lowered her voice when she said to me, “…there are two classes of people here”. Asked how so, she tilted her chin towards the boardroom saying, “Those on the inside” and then, indicating the office area, “Those on the outside”.

      I managed a little laugh. She glared back. No joke. Dead serious. And she, an “insider” even by her own magical measure, had done most of the work in preparing the platters.

      Can anyone guess why she’s on leave from oh, say, towards the end of next week. Hint: God help us!

      Where I work, there is no identical platter.  However, the remnants are delivered to the proles with a hearty “Help yourselves.”
      I’ve not received an invite to the Friday drinks since the “I’m sorry, but I don’t eat other peoples’ table scraps.” incident.
      As to Elena Jeffreys, I should imagine Security and future prosperity would figure quite prominently amongst the sweet painted ladies.
      But not in a way The Great Helmsman may have considered.
