– Gillard is clearly rattled by the AWU scandal  –
– does not want the Opposition pursuing her involvement when Parliament resumes  –
| Author: EYE-BALL Opinion | 30th Jan 2013|

The National Press Club address by Gillard today baited her hooks and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott chomped hard.

Given where the police investigations are on the ‘Power of Attorney’ document, and how Parliament ended last year with the Opposition clearly pushing Gillard over her involvement in the AWU scandal – Gillard had to pull a stunt to throw the Opposition of her scent when Parliament resumes next week.   She knew her days were numbered unless she could get Abbott to change his AWU scandal focus.

Gillard played the election card when she announced in today’s address a 2013 Federal election to be held on the 14th Sept.   Nobody saw this coming, and giving away the surprise of the Government controlling when the election is called is a desperate move by Gillard.

It has never been done before and the motive behind the move is pure medieval and sinister.  

The decision provides what is in effect an almost nine month election campaign.   Most of what Gillard offered up as justification is  not relevant.   Her chant for every opportunity to have all policy’s costed has already been discounted by the Opposition.   There is the May budget, and the 2013 end of year accounts will not be available until after the election date.   How can any responsible person expect to structure policies when the Treasury position is not fully known.

This is Gillard’s last throw of the dice in trying to prevent Police knocking on her door seeking her admissions to her involvement in the AWU scandal.

Tony Abbott held a Press conference an hour or so ago and already he is talking about running in Gillard’s race.  

Abbott did not respond in ways that would indicate he wants to run his own race.   His response should have been to call Gillard’s ploy out for what it is – he should have told the Australian people that the Opposition will pursue Gillard over the AWU scandal and it would be extremely unlikely that the Government will still be the Government when Sept 14 comes around.

No – Abbott again showed that he happy to run behind Gillard in Gillard’s race with Gillard setting the agenda and the pace – he looked weak and opinion is reserved until after his reply at the National Press Club tomorrow.

To vilify Gillard’s Leadership position in that once an election has been called – there is no history where the Leader is removed or displaced in the election time-frame.

It is quite possible that Peter Slipper will resign his Parliamentary position to guarantee no loss of Parliamentary pension rather than face fraud charges.  

Craig Thompson has declared his intent to fight his charges but the evidence is overwhelming and his pension is not guaranteed as is Slipper’s – he does not have the time in office to be exempt.   As a result his pretense to prolong his court case to serve Gillard’s term in office will be his legal teams agenda.   The question I want answered is whether Roxon will assist in that endeavor?

And in addition – the Obeid ICAC inquiry will be ongoing all throughout 2013 and this will only damage the ALP brand further.   

Everything in Gillard’s Press Club address was window dressing her election stunt – she gained approval for the early election from the Independents and The Greens, yet left her caucus out of the loop – how many of her Ministers were aware of the Election stunt?  

I cannot recall such contempt from a self-serving politician.  Gillard stands alone as the great spin manipulator – Shane Warne she is not – but in her domain consisting of a kindergarten full of inept ALP MP’s and Senators – she with her ‘schoolmarm’ intellectual makeover appears to be holding sway.

I’m sure many others will see different motives and angles – but this stunt by Gillard has immediately put Abbott off his game-plan for next week.  It has forced him into Gillard’s race.

Abbott fronts the Press Club tomorrow and unless he calls Gillard out over the AWU scandal and its near term outcome, unless he sets his own agenda – i.e. to aim for an early disolvement of the Government as the numbers fall – Abbott is not fit to be our next PM.   He has for two plus years allowed Gillard to dominate him – his steady as she goes – his Carbon Tax campaign – his response to the misogynist tag – Abbott has to lead if he wants to be leader and tomorrow is D-Day for him.

    I agree on one thing. This is all about keeping the coppers away from the doorsteps of The Lodge. She will be well aware of where the coppers are at, she probably even thinks Olive has dropped her in it by telling the truth. She is scraping the bottom of the barrel to stay in office. I also think Abbott is worried about what the ‘progressive’ women will think of him if he attacks her. He needs to pull out the footage of her standing at the dispatch box and saying
    “bring it on” and then tell those progressive Listers he is bringing it on.

    Have you sent this to Sidononis. He has Abbott’s ear. She is a crafty bitch. I tend to agree with you. She is well advised in a nasty confrontational way.

    Surely something must bring her undone before an election.

    Another thing in her favour about the AWU fraud is that Ballieu is as useless as tits on a bull and likely to get tossed next time around. If the VIC Police Comm thinks Labor are a chance to get back into Govt he may well choose to put a hold on any charges so that he keeps his job when the change occurs.

    Business Leaders have come out damming Gillard and her early call on an election …

    Extract from Australian story below:

    FAIRFAX Media chairman and Reserve Bank of Australia board member Roger Corbett has lashed at Julia Gillard’s decision to set voters a seven-and-a-half month election campaign, calling on her to bring the election date forward to avoid an unnecessarily destabilising environment for business. …
