” This is not the first time I have asked this question.
On 16Screen Australia has no functioning complaints system.
This has happened in the case of my dispute with Fiona Cameron, the Documentary section of Screen Australia, Ruth Harley and the SA Board.
Whilst the dispute begins with Claire Jager’s incompetence, is amplified by Julia Overton’s refusal to answer letters and exacerbated by Ross Mathews’ refusal to deal appropriately with my complaint, it only , Mr Crean seems to be sublimely unconcerned and has appointed you as the spin doctor, whose job it is to make this problem go away.
It is an integral part of her job to be transparent and accountable and, when she is not (for whatever reason) it is right and appropriate that journalists, politicians and members of the public be allowed to voice their opinions.
In scouring through the marked up correspondence provided to me by Ruth two days ago (after 5 months of asking!
If my assertions are not based on demonstrable fact, why has no-one, this past 14 months, taken the five minutes it would take to point out to me that my assertions have no factual basis?
The reason, of course, is that my facts are right and Mr Crean has no more interest in the facts than anyone within the Screen Australia hierarchy.
This is an extraordinary state of affairs and symptomatic of the problems faced by the government of which Mr Crean is a part.
I am sure, Caroline, that you take offence at being referred to as a spin doctor but that’s what you are in this instance.
It may well be that my letter to Caroline Fulton is defamatory.
