The trials and tribulations of Julia Gillard will create history in the true Australian traditions – convicts we were, and convicts we remain.

Gillard’s criminal background was what started the rot – what was she thinking when she first thought she had a shot at becoming the PM?  Talk about a Sarah Palin moment for the ALP boneheads who vetted her.   Bill Shorten knew about all this history as did so many ALP Front Benchers at the time.

The ‘Daily Telegraph’ has produced a timeline of Gillards notches and were she became stuck in the mud along the way.  It’s a long list but hindsight is a wonderful thing – the ALP got it so horribly wrong ..

  1. June 24, 2010 – Gillard becomes Australia’s first female Prime Minister after challenging Kevin Rudd. The incident becomes known as the ‘knifing’ of Rudd.
  2. August 2, 2010 – The PM says it’s time voters had a chance to see the “real Julia”. The move backfires when people ask: if it’s now time to see the real Julia, who was she before?
  3. December 15, 2010 – At least 30 asylum seekers die when their ramshackle boat breaks up after being tossed against cliffs in rough seas off Christmas Island. The incident reignites debate about boat arrivals in Australia.
  4. January 2011 – Gillard visits flood-ravaged Queensland, and is criticised by some commentators for lack of warmth. Her one-off flood levy to help Queenslanders recover is highly controversial.
  5. February 24, 2011 – Gillard breaks an election promise in announcing a carbon tax. Tony Abbott slams the announcement as “an utter betrayal of the Australian people”.
  6. March 21, 2011 – Gillard cops flack when she reveals she is opposed to gay marriage and, despite being an atheist, that she thinks it’s important for people to understand the Bible.
  7. March 23, 2011 – A carbon tax protest rally led by Tony Abbott in Canberra turns personal when anti-government demonstrators start chanting “ditch the bitch”. Placards at the rally read “Ju-Liar” and “Bob Brown’s bitch”.
  8. May 7, 2011 – The Gillard Government announces it is close to signing the “Malaysia Solution”. Issues surrounding human rights and unaccompanied children then dog the government.
  9. May 18, 2011 – The Prime Minister flicks the switch on the National Broadband Network on mainland Australia. Many commentators and the Opposition call it waste of money but Gillard says naysayers are out of touch.
  10. May 30, 2011 – The government suspends live exports after Four Corners exposes brutal mistreatment of Australian cattle in Indonesian slaughterhouses. Pastoralists’ livelihoods suffer as their cattle remain in limbo.
  11. June 15, 2011 – Newspoll shows support for Julia Gillard has crashed to a record low of just 30 per cent. The figure is lower than Kevin Rudd’s was when she replaced him.
  12. September 27, 2011 – Kevin Rudd adds fuel to leadership speculation when he makes a gaffe on ABC Radio: “I’m a very happy little vegemite being prime minister … being foreign minister of Australia.”
  13. November 23, 2011 – The mining tax is passed after parliament sits late into the night. The Opposition vows to repeal the tax if elected and accuses the Government of secretive “backdoor deals”.
  14. November 24, 2011 – Canberra is stunned by a deal installing Peter Slipper, a member of the Queensland Liberals, as Speaker of the House of Representatives. It shores up the government’s numbers but the ousting of Harry Jenkins, a popular and effective Speaker, is seen has harsh.
  15. December 2, 2011 – Gillard is widely criticised for “airbrushing” Kevin Rudd from ALP history at the party’s National Conference in Sydney.
  16. January 22, 2012 – Gillard reneges on a deal with key independent Andrew Wilkie to introduce measures to tackle problem gambling. Wilkie pulls his support from the government in retaliation. The move puts a new complexion on the installation of Slipper as Speaker.
  17. January 26, 2012 – One of Gillard’s key advisors is forced to resign after admitting he tipped off Aboriginal activists to incorrect reports that Tony Abbott wanted to close the tent embassy.
  18. February 24, 2012 – Kevin Rudd announces he will contest the leadership, saying Gillard has lost the confidence of the Australian people.
  19. February 27, 2012 – Gillard retains the top job after winning the challenge 71-31, but it comes at a cost as Mark Arbib resigns.
  20. March 26, 2012 – Queensland Labor is stunned with a landslide state election reducing the party to a rump in the parliament. Gillard says she respects the “shouted” message from voters, but rejects claims it serves as a warning to her own Government.
  21. April 23, 2012 – The PM is forced to defend her decision to appoint Peter Slipper as Speaker after allegations he abused his Cabcharge account and sexually harassed a former adviser.
  22. April 29, 2012 – Gillard accepts Craig Thompson’s resignation and stands Peter Slipper aside indefinitely. She says the scandals have “crossed a line”, but some commentators see it as another complete U-turn.
  23. May 8, 2012 – Voters were unconvinced by Gillard’s 2012 Federal Budget offering $5 billion in cost-of-living offset measures to counteract the impact of the Carbon Tax.
  24. May 9, 2012 – Gillard said she was “deeply disturbed” that a three-year investigation by Fair Work Australia found suspended Labor MP Craig Thomson had spent almost $500,000 of union members’ funds on prostitutes, fine dining, hotels, cash withdrawals, air travel and electioneering.
  25. May 10, 2012 – Gillard declared that US President Barak Obama’s support for same-sex marriage would not change her own view on the issue.
  26. June 21, 2012 – About 90 asylum seekers were lost at sea after a boat capsized north-west of Christmas Island. Rescue attempts successfully pulled 109 out of the water.
  27. June 28, 2012 – A second asylum-seeking vessel sank, claiming the lives of at least four people. Merchant and naval vessels rescued 125.
  28. August 12, 2012 – Gillard was forced into a major back-down by announcing the Government would nominate Nauru and Manus Island to be reopened as offshore processing facilities for asylum seekers.
  29. August 18, 2012 – It was revealed Julia Gillard had been under investigation when she resigned from her law firm Slater and Gordon in 1995. Questions had been raised about work she had done for her then boyfriend, a union boss accused of corruption.
  30. August 23, 2012 – The Australian reveals that Gillard admitted that the entity she set up for Wilson was a slush fund to raise cash for the re-election of union officials. Gillard breaks her silence, denying any wrongdoing and declaring the story is part of a sexist internet smear campaign
  31. October 9, 2012 – A fiery speech by Prime Minister Julia Gillard slamming Opposition Leader Tony Abbott for being a misogynist gains global attention.
  32. November 11, 2012 – Wayne Hem swears in a statutory declaration that he made the Gillard payment and other payments after being instructed to do so by Bruce Wilson.
  33. November 15, 2012 – The Australian reveals that former AWU official Helmut Gries, who first raised concerns that union money may have been spent on Gillard’s renovations, now doubts that version of events.
  34. January 28, 2013 – First bloke Tim Mathieson attracts the wrong sort of attention for the following comment: “We can get a blood test for (prostate cancer), but the digital examination is the only true way to get a correct reading on your prostate, so make sure you go and do that, and perhaps look for a small Asian female doctor is probably the best way.”
  35. January 30, 2013 – Prime Minister Julia Gillard announces a September 14 election date, initiating one of the longest campaigns in Australian history.
  36. January 31, 2103 – Former Labor MP Craig Thomson is arrested at his electoral office on the NSW Central Coast and is charged with 150 offences relating to allegedly fraudulent use of union funds at the Health Services Union.
  37. February 2, 2013 – Ministers Nicola Roxon and Chris Evans announce their resignations ahead of the election.
  38. February 19, 2013 – Greens leader Christine Milne announces the end of her party’s minority government agreement with Labor over its failed mining tax. The Greens will continue to offer supply until the September election.
  39. February 26, 2013 – A Newspoll published in The Australian shows a five-point drop in support for Julia Gillard as preferred Prime Minister, giving Opposition Leader Tony Abbott a four point lead of 40 to 36 per cent. Last November, Ms Gillard enjoyed a 14-point lead in the preferred PM stakes.

This list is important history – all children should be educated in this stuff so they know and can recognise the signs of a Government completely out of their depth … in generation terms Australian’s have shown that things need to get desperate before they take any real interest in politics.

This is a major reason why politicians can get away with what they do … The electorate has no interest in politics – they have been so turned out because of all the lies and broken promises that as voters forced to make a choice – how can one measure who lies best …


Larry Pickering’s Political Take:

To bring some much-needed levity – there is always the Larry Pickering Cartoons … below is a sample of his summer offerings – his images page can be access here[click on image below to enlarge] … enjoy and don’t hurt yourself with the belly laughs …

Larry Pickering also writes some very intelligent blogs including many on the AWU scandal.  Whilst not as regarded as Hedley Thomas in journalistic circles – his penmanship and his heady wit give him a take on things not easily publishable in mainstream media.  None the less … his take on events cuts to the chase and he does not mince words … his Facebook page can be accessed here

    The time line should have started from when she was a ‘red ragger’ at Uni. The days when she discovered married women were prostitutes. From there to S&G and her penchant for married men who could access money from compliant Companies run by brothers in law. Then on to Emily’s List and weak male parliamentarians too frightened to take on the ‘sisters of Emily’ and so it goes on

    So long, and so succinct.

    So long Julia!
