Title:
– Gillard behaves like a Guilty Person –
– Asks for allegations to be made –
| Author: EYE-BALL Opinion | 14th Nov 2012 |
The Prime Minister is showing signs the campaign to expose her involvement in the AWU scandal has her on the backfoot.  When pressed today at a news conference where she was asked questions about the $5000 cash deposit to her account by agents of Bruce Wilson – she berated the campaign by ‘The Australian’, and claimed there was no allegation contained within the story.

The ‘ABC’ reported the story along the same lines as the ‘Courier Mail’, and ‘The Age’,  read the story below –

PM attacks paper over slush fund ‘smear’ campaign


| Author: By chief political correspondent Simon Cullen | Date: Nov 14th, 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

The Prime Minister has launched a scathing attack on The Australian newspaper, accusing it of a long-running smear campaign against her over allegations involving a union slush fund.

Julia Gillard has consistently denied any wrongdoing in relation to her involvement with the fund for her then-boyfriend and Australian Workers Union (AWU) official Bruce Wilson.

Ms Gillard, who was a lawyer at Slater and Gordon in 1992 when the fund was set up, has said she believed the fund would be used for legitimate purposes, namely to support the re-election of union officials.

The Australian today reported that in 1995, $5,000 was deposited in Ms Gillard’s bank account by a former AWU official at the request of Mr Wilson.

The paper states there is no evidence to suggest Ms Gillard asked for the payment or knew of its origins.

The report said the money was provided to the union official in a “wad of $100 and $50 notes”, but it is not known where Mr Wilson got the funds.

When asked about the money by journalists in Brisbane this afternoon, Ms Gillard lashed out at the newspaper for publishing the story.

“Having read today’s Australian closely, there is not one substantiated allegation in today’s Australian,” she said.

“It does not contain one allegation of wrongdoing by me.

“The Australian newspaper has spent months and months and months in so-called investigative journalism looking at this matter, and after all of those months and months and months of looking, there is not one substantiated allegation of wrongdoing by me.

“This matter is trawled over for the best part of 20 years, and at the end of it being trawled over for the best part of 20 years, there is not one finding of wrongdoing by me, and there’s a reason for that – I didn’t do anything wrong.

“This kind of smear that we are seeing in today’s Australian… this is a smear pure and simple, and I’m not going to dignify it by becoming involved in it.”

Asked if she remembered getting the $5,000, Ms Gillard responded: “I’ve just dealt with the nature of these smears.”

When pressed on the matter of the deposit, the Prime Minister added: “If you’ve got substantiated allegation to put to me, put it, otherwise don’t engage in this smear.”

Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop has targeted the Prime Minister in Parliament over the union slush fund, declaring Ms Gillard still has legitimate questions to answer.

“It goes to the Prime Minister’s honesty, it goes to her character, it goes to her ethical standards, it goes to her professional conduct,” Ms Bishop said in a subsequent interview with Macquarie Radio.

… read more …  story continues on other issues.

The Prime Minister did not answer the questions put – she redirects her response to the paper story and states there was no allegation … see highlighted section and the bold/italic section …

The Prime Minister is not being asked if there is an allegation – she is being asked to respond to the claim that a $5000 cash deposit was made to her bank account and what she knew about it.

She has responded like a guilty person on a witness stand daring the prosecutor to make an allegation – it is obvious she has more to say but will not say it unless she needs to in defense of herself.

Nobody does not recognise a $5,000 deposit to their bank account – if she paid it back or realised it was not hers, she would have made a request to have the funds returned to the rightful account.  The source of funds were recognised and they were not returned.   The PM has a case to answer as to why Mr Wilson paid the $5000 cash into her account,  from what source the funds came from, and were they used for her house renovations or some other personal use.

The PM is aware that this AWU scandal has been ‘cleansed’ from top to bottom by Union officials and her parliamentary minders.  As a result the likelihood of proof positive evidence being found was highly unlikely.

Yet – Hedley Thomas and Mike Smith have done their job with the help of Ralph Blewitt, and have enough to implicate the PM in the fraud.  If she continues her current tact of not responding and claiming, demanding an allegation be made she just looks more guilty every time.

If you want an allegation Ms Gillard – there are plenty to be made – if you think that proof is needed to make an allegation you are wrong – circumstantial evidence has convicted many a criminal and with the weight of evidence stacking up against you – your efforts to escape your fate will fail, too many people are now hunting you and you know it is only a matter of time.

Do your Party a favour and step down to save it from the humiliation of the Slipper court result, the Thompson court case next year, and your own demise that will surely come as well.

    From above “has said she believed the fund would be used for legitimate purposes, namely to support the re-election of union officials”.

    A very strange sense of legitimate. Whose funds were being used to fund a re-election of who?

    I love it when she tries to put distance between her current role and previous immature naive self. Give us a break. This squirming is very very undignified. As was said after Misogynist Nut Job “She is setting back women’s causes by 3 decades”.

    I for one support women’s equality issues, but it does mean equality in every way, not only when it suits. If anyone acts through their heart instead of their head is that a defence?

    Bring on another Royal Commission. It took far too long to achieve the first one on abuse of children.

    Does anyone think it OK for Union bosses to have access to Union funds, i.e. members funds for re-election purposes … how is that not in some way an abuse of position and any different to how Craig Thompson used HSU funds for prostitutes and the like …

    Gillard as a lawyer set up these bank accounts and the corporate identity knowing it was for ‘slush fund’ puposes … how can she in any context claim any ignorance?

    She’s and old sow these days and when a sow is past their pigglet reproduction phase – we shoot em … not even fit for human consumption …

    I do not believe your correspondent’s add any dignity to your cause.
    If you had seen “Viewpoint” last night you would realise we have our own “Fox News” here as well. I was embarrassed.
    Julia Gillard will get away with her wrong doing if the constant flack is not focussed on the issue and taken out of the context of political biases.
    Over the years you have many times edited or banned my input to your blog site.
    How you could allow someone like “Hog Shooter” on to your site, it does nothing to enhance its credability.
    For the record I would like to see Gillard go, but not at the hest of a rabid lynch mob of rednecks.
    Smith as gone about his case methodically and well. His example needs to be followed if the real objectives are to be achieved.

    The following information reveals Julia Gillard’s extraordinary view of right, wrong, ethics and her former role as a solicitor when she constantly recyles her

    one-size-fits-all excuse: “I did nothing wrong”!

    In any legal case, and no matter what their background, nothing anyone may say, write or do can alter the substantive facts.

    As ignorance of the law is never an acceptable excuse, two substantive facts publicly admitted by Gillard would appear to clearly show she made two

    deliberate, considered choices in full knowledge of her obligations as a solicitor and officer of the court. In doing so, she abandoned the ethics and integrity

    expected of her, by wilfully and recklessly contravening the Rules of Practice under which her Practising Certificate was granted, as well as her duties and

    obligations to one of her main clients, Victoria Branch AWU, her law firm Slater & Gordon and the equity partnership employing her.

    1. She admits that in late 1991, she began a long-term intimate relationship with an employee of her principal client, Victoria Branch AWU. She kept it secret

    from them and the equity partnership for as long as possible.
    It doesn’t matter whether her motivation was lust, love or just as a politically ambitious Left-wing lawyer seeing tremendous advantage in joining with a

    powerful Right-wing Union Official being groomed by P.M-maker Bill Ludwig for National President of the AWU. Any single motive or combination of motives,

    or no motive at all, does not alter the substantive fact!

    2. She admits giving legal advice and assistance to set up and incorporate an association, which on examination of all matters involved was unlawful. Further,

    she again kept it secret from her main client, and the equity partnership.
    It doesn’t matter what it was for, what Gillard thought it was for, or even whether it complied with the relevant W.A Act, which it didn’t) , it does not alter the

    substantive fact!,

    Confirmation of these known substantive facts in the Wilson/Gillard/Blewitt/AWU Fraud case can be found in the two known documented investigations and

    statements from those who carried them out, Ian Cambridge and the equity partners of S & G, They can also be confirmed from what Gillard and others have

    stated on public record.

    1. In the period 1991 -1995, when the alleged fraudulent use of AWU moneys took place, Julia Eileen Gillard was a solicitor subject to the obligations

    imposed on her under the Legal Profession Practice Act 1958, when granted her Practising Certificate
    2. She was also a salaried partner of Slater & Gordon, which imposed fiduciary obligations to her employers, the equity partnership of the firm
    3. One of her principal clients was the Australian Workers Union, Victoria Branch. In providing any advice or other assistance relating to Union matters, she

    was bound to comply with AWU Rules, as well as acting ithin the Rules of Practice mentioned above.
    4. By her own admission, in late 1991 she began a long-term intimate relationship with an employee of the AWU, Bruce Wilson, a married man with two small

    children. In that moment, she wilfully and recklessly contravened the Rules of Practice by creating a conflict of interest for herself, her partners and her

    principal client. Gillard immediately opened herself to the serious charge of misconduct, and because of the conflict of interest also placed her equity

    partners at risk in terms of professional indemnity.
    5. By her own admission, in early 1992 she provided advice and assistance to her then lover. Bruce Wilson. to set up and incorporate an association under

    the Associations Incorporation Act 1987 WA, This was not an industrial Act, but one put in place to assist community and sporting groups to have easier

    control and tracking of their finances. It had specific provisions designed to prevent Unions or the like from using it and also preventing any moneys involved

    being used for personal use or gain by signatories of any bank accounts subsequently opened…
    6.. Despite knowing it was against all relevant Rules of her principal client the AWU and despite knowing it did not comply with the relevant Associations Act,

    Gillard drew up Rules for the proposed association. Whatever Gillard or anyone else thought or claimed were the aims of the association is irrelevant. The

    setting up and incorporation was unlawful and its sole purpose was to enable her lover Bruce Wilson to open and operate bank accounts.
    7. Analysis of the documents by a handwriting expert, reveal she personally wrote the name ‘Australian Workers Union – Workplace Reform Association’ on

    the required Applicant’s Certificate and the Application for Incorporation, despite knowing that in so doing she was again breaching the relevant Rules of the

    AWU and the Associations Incorporation Act. Somehow, she prevailed upon the W.A Corporate Affairs Commissioner to allow the registration and

    incorporation of the sham association that had previously been rejected. The contents of the AWUWRA file held in W.A have now mysteriously gone missing,
    8. Gillard created a file which she has referred to at various times as “the incorporation file” or the “the AWU Association” file but did not open it on the firm’s

    system. She kept it’s existence hidden from her employers, the equity partnership, and did not advise her principal client, Victoria Branch AWU of the

    existence of the AWUWRA. She only produced the file when forced to do so a few days before her final interview.in September 1995, when allegations were

    put to her following their internal investigation She has never offered a satisfactory explanation for any of these actions but it is pertinent to note that

    opening the file on the firm’s system would have meant exposing her unethical and arguably unlawful actions. Like the W.A file, this file has also mysteriously

    gone missing!!
    9. Ian Cambridge, former Joint National Secretary of the AWU from May 1994, carried out a detailed investigation into the many discrepancies in AWU

    finances he uncovered and in Paragraph 11 of his 19/11/96 Affidavit, sets out in detail the reasons why the setting up and incorporation of the association

    was unlawful. He also tracked the source and disbursement of monies and established the subsequent misuse of funds meant for use of the AWU, out of the

    two initial bank accounts Gillard had enabled her boy friend to open at the CBA in W.A., AWUWRA Inc Cash Management at call A/c No. 6005 1000 2590 and

    AWUWRA Inc. Cheque A/c.No.6000 1000 2582..
    10. Over $540,000 of monies paid to the AWU and meant to be used for designated Union activities, were identified by Ian Cambridge as being deposited

    into these two accounts and then being improperly used by Bruce Wilson and his AWU accomplice Ralph Blewitt. The source of the money was mainly from

    the Building Construction Industry Training Fund (BCITF) that had been set up by the WA Government in 1990, funded by taxpayers plus levied contributions

    from some companies. Gillard’s lover, Most of the deposited money had been onpaid to the AWUWRA by Thiess Contractors which was managed by Wilson’s

    brother-in-law, Joe Trio.Bruce. Wilson had been involved in the setting up and implementation of the BCITF.
    11. The first major withdrawal from the Bank Account designated AWUWRA Inc.C’wealthBA Cheque A/c no.6005 1000 2582 was $25,000, of which Ian

    Cambridge believes $23,000 was used by Wilson as a deposit associated with the purchase at auction on 13th February 1993, of a property at 85 Kerr St.,

    Fitzroy, Melbourne, It was allegedly purchased in a private capacity for Ralph Blewitt by Bruce Wilson, acting under the Power of Attorney of Ralph Blewitt.

    Gillard and Wilson attended the auction together, with another S & G representative..
    It was all handled through Gillard’s firm Slater & Gordon and the conveyancing done or supervised by Gillard. A $150,000 mortgage loan was provided to

    Blewitt though the property division of Slater & Gordon. An AWUWRA Inc Cheque for $67,722-30 was written out to Slater & Gordon 18/3/93 from the same

    a/c, countersigned by Bruce Wilson and Ralph Blewitt and appears to have been electronically transferred from W.A into S & G where it was deposited in

    their Trust A/c
    12. The Power of Attorney was drawn up by Julia Gillard. It has a typed in date 4th February 1993 and Gillard has signed as witness to the signing by Ralph

    Blewitt. However, he has recently claimed that the PoA was brought to him in Perth WA by Bruce Wilson a couple of days after the auction and he signed on

    about 15th March. Julia Gillard was not present.
    13. The property deal is still shrouded in some mystery but Ian Cambridge summed it up in para 18.2 of his affidavit as follows:-
    I am unable to understand how Slater & Gordon, who were then acting for the Victoria Branch of the Union, could have permitted the use of funds which

    were obviously taken from the Union, in the purchase of private property of this nature, without seeking or obtaining proper authority from the Union for such

    use of funds and without recording the interest of the Union on the title of the property.

    Summing up so far, Gillard made two deliberate choices (outlined at the beginning of this post), which placed her in breach of many rules, duties and

    obligations as a solicitor.

    There is much,much more still to come which I’ll expand on in later posts if you wish!! I’m also happy to answer any queries.

    Very interesting to see the extent of corruption and extent of the ongoing coverup in the AWU, which Ian Cambridge did his best to expose.That coverup is

    also being used to “protect” Julia Gillard and other ex-Union Members of Parliament.

    Hillbilly – found your post efforts in the spam file thismorning – not one of my favourite things I need to do in managing this site …

    Seems the first link in the comment to was picked up as having some virus issue and most likely this was why it was booted – fact is that it went to spam and did not post automaticly – I leart something for future rference about how WordPress treats threatening links in comments …

    I approved your comment and it is up there now.

    Thanks EyeBall. I’ve noticed things like this for some months when going to good links from other sites. All sorts of virus warnings come up sometimes and because I’m not computer savvy and a bit cynical , my first suspicion is always some sort of hack or outside interference as part of the attempt to cover up. Jo Nova was the victim of several hacks recently and there are many who want to shut down free expression and alternative arguments. There is no doubt many things are being “disappeared” from the internet as I found when people were helping me track down important info. They’d find it in the morning, go back in the afternoon and it’d be gone!!
    It’s annoying but I don’t mind telegraphing punches sometimes if I’ve already got what I want – it lets me know for sure I’m on the right track. Thanks for your help and email offer. It was really appreciated. Cheers and all the best H/B

    BTW, you’ve mentioned someone here is doing work on current union corruption and lack of auditing and accountability. I can never find it so how’s it going?
