I have a wishlist for gifts this year - gifts for other people.
Please can you deliver a gift to the following men and women at the University of Newcastle:-
- those who have bullied and harassed many of us out of our workplaces and jobs and destroyed our physical and psychological health
- those who colluded and supported the bullies by intentionally ignoring what was happening
- those who stood by, watched or knew about the bully and the bullying and who kept quiet to save their selves.
Please deliver a large mirror to each of them - a large self-illuminating mirror would be the best.
They can open their gifts and follow John McKay's advice:-
"I am a big believer in the 'mirror test.'
All that matters is if you can look in the mirror and honestly tell the person you see there, that you've done your best".
