Robert Doyle Memes and exclusive ‘interview’
In a controversial move Melbourne’s mayor Robert Doyle has set up a special 457 visa program to purge the internet of bad publicity about himself and the Melbourne City Council he is responsible for. Here’s the interview:
OM.NET: So you have a program where you document negative publicity on the internet about yourself and Melbourne city council and have it purged from the internet. How can you justify such a thing?
Robert Doyle: Bad publicity about me is bad for Melbourne, and I want what’s good for Melbourne. If its good for me, it’s good for Melbourne, and ratepayers understand that. So we have to eliminate bad publicity.
OM.NET: A lot of people will be surprised at your use of 457 visas to employ foreigners to to work that can be done locally.
Robert Doyle: Well we did ask for local tenders, and they said it would be impossible to do here.
OM.NET: That seems hard to believe, there must be a lot of talented people here out of work that could do it.
Robert Doyle: Ah, you don’t understand the technology we are using. It’s quite amazing!
OM.NET: Sounds technical, can you explain it?
Robert Doyle: Well you know how you can copy a web page from the internet and burn it onto a blank CD or print it onto a page?
Robert Doyle: See that actually captures the information.
OM.NET: Yes that’s true.
Robert Doyle: So once you turn the computer off its on the CD or paper, not the computer, it’s captured. So then it’s just a simple task of then piling up all the CD’s and printouts and then burning them in a large open air fire. And then no more embarrassing information.
OM.NET: It can’t possibly work that way!
Robert Doyle: You sound like the local naysayers who didn’t get the bid. I need to work with positive can-do people, people who say “Yes”.
OM.NET: You can’t be serious!
Robert Doyle: I am, and I’m about to watch the video of the latest burning so I have to cut it a bit short here. It’s been a real pleasure explaining how I’m serving the people of Melbourne.
