The Cat Empire
If he won ten thousand at the races, would his boss get a cut?

Dear ABC reporter: his name was Robert Henderson. He was killed at Yarlook in 1935. The High Court decided the case in 1937.
I disagree C.L.
He is “on call” and realizing that he was out of phone range, turned back.
That he should not be allowed to freely walk around without supervision is more a reflection on the inadequacies of the employer’s employment policies.
How about personal responsibility, not nanny-statism?
The guy is a grifter, but the court let him get away with it.
Wow! The ABC uses ridiculous ‘gender’ pronouns as default now. They are rubbing our noses in it.
I’m just saying that sometimes, what can you do?
NFA, my comment was just a general one about the case, not meant as a reply or rebuttal to you.
The ridiculous, dumb pronoun substitution; needles to my eyes
Yes, that’s how the court read the event. I don’t know how the applicant established the truth of the turn-back, however.
Wow! The ABC uses ridiculous ‘gender’ pronouns as default now.
Only to dehumanise the man. Here is that par and the one following it:
She must have been one of the few government employees whose job doesn’t entail screwing taxpayers.
The walk was a social outing to view a piece of real estate. Mr Nazar might equally have fallen off a ladder at home or suffered a serious injury while mowing the lawn there.
This appeared in The Times 10 years ago; it is even more relevant today:-
I absolutely refuse to use “they” or “their” for the singular; wokesters and the-never-fail-to-be-offended can get stuffed!
Even morons know it is atrocious grammar, and I for one will not be a party to it.
Not just poor grammar but laziness. Mr Henderson wasn’t killed in 1937. He was killed in 1935. The High Court case was 1937. The journalist couldn’t be bothered doing what I did – which was to take five seconds to Google the decision.
A billion dollars a year.
Didn’t take it as anything else.
you clowns obviously do not know any doctors on call at every hospital, On call means on call. If you are called you have to go.
Tramp misses the point again. Surprise surprise.
Non Mentis is spherical, he has no point.
It appears the Urban Dictionary backs up your assessment BJ.
Absurd decision, and the discussion of the element ‘on call’ is irrelevant. If I am ‘on call’ and playing a round of golf and pull a muscle while driving off the 4th tee, what relevance does being ‘on call’ have? Alternatively, what is the relevance of turning back if I notice, say, while walking to the 10th tee, that I am now out of range and slip and fall on a log when walking back into range? If there is no case re the former, why is there in the latter? Or is the argument that whatever you are doing while ‘on call’ is subject to worker’s compensation?
you would be playing golf if you were on call.
It appears few people understand what being on call means
Homer, this fellow was actually on a trail in the country side walking with his wife while ‘on call’, and your going to pretend that doctors have never played a round of golf while ‘on call’ is implausible. Please.
My father in law when he was alive was on call to blayney hospital where he had to do work during the early hours of the morning. My next door neighbor does the same at blacktown hospital so i know something about doctors being on call.
They have to be ready to travel when the call comes in and they cannot drink alcohol also.
If this person was thus and was called up then he would be disciplined for not being ready..
