From what started out as municipal offices, that are a department of the state, have stealthfully turned into businesses, and even claims that these businesses are a third tier of government.
ALL unlawfully, but that is another post or dozen.
Keep in mind that we are told by the Murdoch media "it is not romantic or sweet of you to take a photograph of a woman without her knowledge."
See news.com.au article:
at Toyota in Melbourne the company did a sweep of employees computers to see if there was any pornographic material stored on the PC's as there has been some emails going around that people found offensive.
After this sweep a few people's employment was terminated, but needless to say the company did not want this to be a high profile matter, and as a result this was not reported by the corporate media.
going back to the Redland Bay 'city council' of Brisbane, Queensland, an employee by the name of Craig Ogilivie has a porn stash justifying this by stating that he is a "red-blooded" (Aussie?).
To make it worse he is a creep by stalking women, talking covert pictures and storing them on council supplied equipment.
Should the council NOT terminate Craig's employment it could be quite easily seen that they support this kind of behaviour - i.e. sexual harassment of women.

Redlands councillor Craig Ogilvie defends porn stash
A Redlands City councillor caught with personal sex tapes and pornographic images on his ratepayer-funded laptop has defended storing the content the device, saying he is guilty only of being "red-blooded".
Division 2 councillor Craig Ogilvie, who is seeking re-election at the local government polls on March 19, also said he had not done anything wrong and the public revelation of the material on his computer was akin to being "slut-shamed".
Speaking with 612 ABC Brisbane breakfast host Spencer Howson on Monday morning, Mr Ogilvie admitted to storing personal sex tapes and pornographic material on his council-supplied devices, but refuted allegations he had also stored covert pictures taken of women in bikinis on the municipality's beaches.
"I think I'm guilty if anything of being red-blooded, and maybe more red-blooded than some, I don't know, I don't think so but certainly not guilty of any improper or illegal behaviour," he said.
"In relation to covertly taking photos of people at the beach, I just want to say that allegation has already been referred to the police and that was dismissed, so the idea I'm capable or have been indulging in that type of behaviour is incorrect."
Cr Ogilvie, who was also outed as having used his council accounts to access cheating website Ashley Madison in last year's database hack, said he did not believe he had done anything wrong.
"I don't think it's uncommon behaviour, I guess my message to ... everybody is the time to be prudish about this sort of thing, I think we have moved on," he said.
"There's a whole thing about being sex-positive in this world in that people who have sex lives shouldn't be ashamed or slut-shamed by anybody else for having a sexuality and enjoying that."
"Do you feel slut-shamed?" Howson asked.
"I definitely feel there is an element of slut-shaming in what's occurring, yeah," he replied.
"It's private stuff, personal stuff and I think it's my domain, not the public domain."
Cr Ogilvie insisted he was no different to many other employees across the country who were also issued with work-funded devices.
"All of us use our work supplied devices for some element of private use and it could be things of this type," he said.
"I don't think people should feel threatened that somebody might seize their work-supplied devices."
He said, if re-elected, he would be fighting for councillors being issued with private devices that enabled them to access all council-related material necessary, without the threat of the devices being seized.
Cr Ogilvie was the subject of a local government investigation after concerns were raised he used his rate-payer funded phone, computer and tablet to access cheaters website Ashley Madison when the hacking scandal broke last year.
After the story broke on Sunday, Deputy Premier and Local Government Minister Jackie Trad said voters would decide if Cr Ogilvie's use of his ratepayer-funded devices was appropriate on March 19.
But Ms Trad, while not commenting on the Cr Ogilvie matter, said there was nothing stopping him from facing voters in the upcoming local government elections.
"Ultimately every single elected representative faces Queenslanders and the voting population and it is the voters who will make the ultimate determination about the behaviour and the direction that local representatives take," she said.
