    everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. it becomes an issue when people don't have the social filter to know when it's appropriate to share those opinions with others.

    if he's at a reclaim Australia fu*k off we're full southern cross tatt convention, then I'm sure that's an appropriate forum to air his opinions. when he's on the job and he's being paid to do a job, that's not the right forum to be sharing his political views (or any personal views for that matter). him having the opinion is not the issue. it's his lack of self censorship and social filter and inability to regulate his behaviour appropriate to the social setting he's in that's the issue.

    You see there is actual a law to prevent racism and hate speech.

    This isn't a case of someone expressing they like country music and you can't stand it

    That's what I said if you read my post again - the last sentence.

    I still maintain that you can't stop people from having those opinions though. They are personal thoughts, you can't police that. You can police them voicing them though.
