It seems the pie thrower objected to marriage equality?

It's no secret that Alan Joyce is homosexual ..... I won't use the word "gay" because that's a word that means "happy" to me and I won't give it up.
Anyways, Joyce should not push his sexual preference policy into Qantas policy.
Just saying' !

"When Mr Joyce, who is gay, was asked if his advocacy on social issues such as same-sex marriage made him a target he said that was pure speculation and police would investigate."

Here seems to be an attempt to clarify the pie-throwing by the guy who did just that.

http://www.news.com.au/national/nsw-act ... 0255af9d5f

Believe it or not but his explanation got lost to me.
Help with that please.

It wasn't specifically about "gay" people but was the reason?

He opposed same sex marriage and Qantas has been accepting of it. I'm glad Joyce is pressing charges.

Perro, he clearly also said that it was NOT related to the 'gay marriage' proposal.
I just listened again.

I now sort of feel that the pie thrower is against the people who didn't wanted to vote on the subject.

Still confused!

The report you linked to, GF, said "Mr Overheu implied that his actions were triggered by corporate support for same sex marriage."

I posted this topic.... "this man deserves a medal", purely for it's amusing content of Alan Joyce copping a pie in the face.
Pure slapstick comedy in my opinion. :roflmao:

I'm not attacking his gender preferences nor his policy towards legal marriage for all regardless of sex. I don't give a rats rectum about any of this crap, just enjoying the sight of him with pie on his face.
Geez, if we cant have a laugh every now and again without dissecting the thread down to it's lowest common denominator, then it's a sad day.
So lighten up people and enjoy it for what it's worth !
:wqoohoo
I, like many other Australians do not like this man because of his arrogance, self importance and ruthless attitude shown towards Australian Qantas workers
He continually pats himself on the back for being such a good guy by getting Qantas out of the shit..... in reality, he achieved this by sacking a few thousand Qantas workers and also gained another four Hundred million dollars for the Qantas coffers in jet fuel savings due to the fall in world oil prices.
...... and then, continually puts his hand up for obscene pay rises in the order of around one million dollars.... not to mention his recent bonus of millions of bucks.
:thinking:

"Qantas boss Alan Joyce's annual pay soared to $12.96 million in the year to June 30 as he steered the airline to a record profit.
Mr Joyce was paid a cash bonus of $3.3 million in the year, and awarded shares worth $1.6 million, for exceeding the company's cost cutting targets, delivering on fuel costs and improving customer satisfaction.
That was a big jump from the previous year's $1.9 million cash bonus, and the main factor in Mr Joyce's total remuneration rising from the previous year's $11.9 million.
His base pay was $2.1 million - up from $2 million a year ago due to the end of a period in which he agreed to forego five per cent of base salary.
Mr Joyce also received about $6 million in shares awarded as long-term incentives in previous years."

source: http://www.news.com.au/finance/business ... 85fbc7dbc5



......and who can forget this outrageous statement by Alan Joyce in 2012. :thinking:

"QANTAS chief executive Alan Joyce has defended his $5 million salary and claimed aircrew get paid more on an hourly basis."

been charged:

"Police initially charged the 67-year-old with providing false details, but Overheu is now also facing charges of common assault, trespass and damage.

Overheu said he wanted to demonstrate his opposition to corporate support for marriage equality.

He is due to face a Perth court on June 7."

I am disappointed by the reactions here. Whether or not you like Joyce the cream pie idiot was a red neck opposed to marriage equality. I applaud the companys support of marriage equality. I hope the old bastard is put behind bars. No he does not deserve a medal. He deserves a long long long time in jail. I would loove to see the old scum bag tied naked to a mardi gras float and covered in glitter and even better tattoo a rainbow on his forehead. I am angry.
For those who support a plebicite this is nothing compared to the anger and hate you will see.
