Complaining Princess

AUSTRALIA'S defence force has knowingly neglected abuse victims, according to a senior army officer who has revealed he was the target of a gay-hate campaign by colleagues. Lieutenant Colonel Paul Morgan told the ABC's 7.30 program last night that the failure of Australian Defence Force management to adequately deal with his complaint was indicative of how poorly many victims were treated.

"Every officer in my chain of command, every colonel and general all the way through to the current Chief of Army, Lieutenant General David Morrison, systematically failed their duty in relation to the management of my complaint."

Way to go Paul.  That will guarantee you will lose all support amongst your peers and superiors. The Army's Chain of Command for complaints goes up to and stops at Chief of Army-- it  doesn't include ABCs 7:30 program. ADF chief General David Hurley told the ABC he rejected Colonel Morgan's claims of widespread inaction on abuse allegations and said numerous programs had been put in place to support victims. How come  Paul is still in the Army?

  • Unwittingly or otherwise he is a member of a minority group that has members all the way to the top of many fields of endeavour…..a group that many are forbidden to openly criticise or appear to be critical of.

  • What a cowardly person you are to post comments like this. You wouldn’t be so brave if you had his family in front of you.
     
    I hope your own parents are ashamed of you, although cowards like you generally hide behind them.

    You wouldn’t be so brave if you had his family, or the families of victims of abuse, in front of you.

  • Interesting comment.
    Whatever is said about Morgan – he can’t be accused of cowardice….

    • No but it is foolhardy and unprofessional.  One should never abuse the boss out of school – poor form as well as illegal.

      It should be career ending but because everyone is terrified of appearing politically incorrect it most probably wont be.
