Title:
– The Turkey Basted Gillard –
– and “The Australian’s” Hedley Thomas’s –
recipe for Slow Roasting a Prime Minister

| Author: EYE-BALL’s Harry’s Growl | 26th Oct 2012 |
The Australian here Hedley Thomas – National Correspondent for ‘The Australian’ filed another story today on the AWU scandal involving PM Gillard and her past association with the AWU and Slater & Gordon.

There is no doubt Hedley Thomas has enough circumstantial evidence to bury the PM – physical evidence is now what he is after and his research and investigations are being thwarted because files that are legally required to be in existence have been reported as now being lost to the system and nobody knows where they are.

Knowing how the system works from my own frustrations in trying to locate documents from two decades ago on a completely different matter –  i.e. relates to a 1988 $75 million fraud involving Nick Greiner when Premier of NSW, and John O’Neill then the boss of the State Bank of NSW – read that story here  – those involved in the AWU/Slater & Gordon corruption have learn from experience to employ a ‘cleaner’ along the way to clean up the mess’ left behind.

It would seem that as a part of Gillards tilt for the PM – someone went backwards and did a thorough job in cleaning up the physical evidence to keep Gillard’s past dead and buried.

Thomas can’t say as much – but as an opinion writer I can.   Thomas’s most recent co-opted story is published below:

Union slush fund papers vanish


| Author: PAIGE TAYLOR and HEDLEY THOMAS | Date: 26th Oct 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

PUBLIC documents that were essential in the fraudulent operation of a union slush fund that Julia Gillard helped to establish 20 years ago are missing from the official file in Western Australia.

The file, numbered 000 748 and titled “Australian Workers Union — Workplace Reform Association Inc”, is held in archives by the State Records Office in Perth.

The file should contain key documents from 1992 when the association, which Ms Gillard described as a “slush fund” for union officials including her then boyfriend, AWU boss Bruce Wilson, was registered by the WA government.

The association’s constitution described it as being dedicated to workplace safety, and omits any mention of it being designed to fund union elections as stated by Ms Gillard. But the government archivist who retrieved the file for The Australian yesterday expressed surprise the file folder no longer held any documents.

He said it was “highly unusual”.

It was unclear whether documents were removed before or after the file was transferred from the relevant government department. The documents would show what the WA government was told before it agreed to register the association.

The SRO has responsibility for managing, preserving and providing access to historical and government records and holds documents going back more than 150 years.

It is unlawful to destroy such records without permission. The discovery of the empty file follows Slater & Gordon disclosing last week it could now not find its own file on the slush fund, which Ms Gillard helped set up as a salaried partner at the law firm without disclosing it to the other partners.

The firm’s managing director, Andrew Grech, said that despite a thorough search through archives his staff had failed to locate the file, the subject of a secret internal interview with Ms Gillard before she left the firm in 1995.

Harry Nowicki, a Melbourne lawyer who is researching AWU history and Ms Gillard’s role in the slush fund, said yesterday it was “very troubling that two files about the same fraud have disappeared — one from Slater & Gordon, and now the other from a State’s official archives”. Mr Nowicki said that as former AWU bagman Ralph Blewitt has already admitted to fraud with the slush fund and was now seeking an indemnity from criminal prosecution in return for his testimony, authorities should be concerned that key documents were missing.

The SRO said the file was delivered in 1999 along with 931 others held by the now-defunct Office of State Corporate Affairs.

The file is listed on the archives’ database without reference to it being empty.

It was not possible to establish if the file had been recently inspected, but it was not recorded as borrowed.

The Prime Minister, who has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing, said in August she provided legal advice for the slush fund’s establishment but knew “absolutely nothing about its workings” until serious allegations were raised in 1995. The existence of the slush fund was withheld from other union members and the leadership for four years from April 1992.

Ms Gillard did not disclose her legal work on the slush fund to the other partners at the firm until serious claims of fraud were raised against Mr Wilson and Mr Blewitt, both of whom refused to co-operate with police investigations. As a result of the lack of disclosure, Ms Gillard’s relationship with the firm’s partners “fractured, and trust and confidence evaporated”, according to a statement two months ago by the firm’s former senior partner, Peter Gordon.

Money in the slush fund’s accounts was siphoned off, with large cheques made out to cash, while about $100,000 went into a $230,000 Melbourne terrace bought in 1993 in the name of Mr Blewitt, for the use of Mr Wilson.

The problem with evidence from Blewitt and Wilson if they were to testify is the creditability gap – Gillard now a sitting PM and far from where she was 17 odd years ago, and her accusers in the crime destitute and disgraced … who is to say that Gillard was not completely involved in the crime, evidence to date paint the picture that she was involved with something – and to take the word of Blewitt and Wilson and the recent lawyer oratory from then Law Partners in Slater & Gordon, one has to realise that Gillard has more then just idle ‘skin’ in the fraud.

No body get’s a free pass on this one when someone serving as the highest office in the land is being questioned and exposed as someone who’s past is less than favourably disposed to someone who is qualified to hold high office.

A simple starter to a host of question might be – why did she nor renew her licence to practise Law after she left S&G – was she under some sort of threat from S&G to not renew her license?

The questions that would follow would not be the tame and friendly prompted questions put to her during her August press conference. A one-on-one interview with Hedley Thomas would sort her out and if she agreed to that then it would go a long way to satisfying my bias toward Gillard as a ‘crook’ and someone who should be in goal for Union fraud along with her lover Bruce Wilson, Craig Thompson and the like.
