| Author: EYE-BALL Opinion | 8th May 2013 |
Some of us a driven by an unerring passion for absolute truth and honesty from our elected Leaders, and the process of Government.This matter again came to light in a recent verbal debate with a site contributor.

The debate focused on whether an individual can change public opinion, or whether an individual who voices an opinion is just pissin’ in the wind.

During the debate opinions were exchanged/expressed about whether most of Australia’s voters don’t care about Gillard having a criminal background, or are happy to know about her AWU past and allow her to continue to serve as our Prime Minister.

This author has a zero tolerance for right and wrong – he’s lived his live along those lines, and in all honesty that black and white attitude has caused immeasurable pain and suffering during a life that is littered with extreme highs and more extreme lows.

There were no shades of grays and that made expectations beyond what other people could live up to.

There is no moral judgement that can be applied that has not already been considered for living a life in this way – children, spouse, family, friends, and the like all suffered as a result.

This blog site begins to expose its underbelly and reason for being.  This author continues to have a number of passions, and takes all the content hereto seriously.

A continuing and overriding belief is that in Leadership – there is absolutely no room for errors of judgement, and no room for moral hesitation when it comes to electing a Leader.   Sure – mistakes will be made and in those instances where Leadership is responsible – full disclosure should be made.

In that context – the belief is held that Gillard’s pursuit of the Prime Ministership given her own knowledge of her AWU involvement, and her own awareness of the cover-up that existed to hide her breach to her Lawyer’s oath, these matters should have made her acutely aware that she was an unfit person to serve as a Prime Minister, or to serve in any capacity where public trust in public monies was involved.

Her exposed involvement and what more is to follow when Police investigations are concluded and revealed, should have made her realise that a day of reckoning would come, and the cost of that reckoning will impact on this Nation for a long time to come.

How does a Nation live down an elected criminal who serve as their Prime Minster?

In that context – every like-minded Australian should feel a moral obligation to do what is necessary to bring Gillard down and free the Nation from whom and what she is as a person.

This opinion is not a political choice between the ALP or the Opposition – it is on record that I personally have never voted anything but ALP in Federal, State, and Local elections in a 40 odd year voting record.

There have many been times where I have voted ‘None of the Above’ when in disagreement nor liked the candidates put forward. I have never voted for the Coalition in any context and that stems from a career in financial markets during the Hawke and Keating eras where deregulation made heroes of both.

This author is not naive to a point in believing that every administration does not keep its secrets, nor withholds information, nor leaks information to influence public opinion, nor tells direct lies to cover up mistakes.

The question is whether the morality and integrity of those making those types of decisions are honest and above reproach.   The ‘perfect world’ can exists, or at least we should strive for it.   Having corrupt politicians serving as our Leaders only makes it easier for them to avoid the moral issues and make decisions where vested interests prevail.

Everybody can and should be afforded the lesson of learning from ones own mistakes.  Gillards mistakes were covered-up and that was her lifetime ‘get out of jail free’ card.

Using the cover-up to clear the path for her to become Prime Minister is an overreach that highlights the corruptive elements within her ALP colleagues, and the Unions who dictate the terms and conditions under which their candidates and representatives become our Leaders.

The ALP has for a number of decades become a cesspool of corruption and has the intent to use high office to profit individuals.

The Obeid, and MacDonald ICAC inquiries are ongoing proof of just how embedded the corruption has become.   This exposure is not alone, and the ALP are not the only political parties with corrupt Members and Administrators.

An example of self-serving interests – in the initial days of the GFC PM Rudd froze all parliamentary salaries as a measure that was as much about public sacrifices being matched by our Leaders.

Prior to this – Parliamentary Superannuation has been a continued area of frustration for the electorate – MP retirement privileges are far in excess of the average Australian and the cost to Australian taxpayers over time has left a liability owing to retired and current MP’s, Senators, Judges and all those linked to the Parliamentary Superannuation scheme – well in excess of $300 billion.

It is baseline wrong to allow Politicians to vote themselves new pay scales and perks – Corporate require shareholder approval for similar pay increases.  It is a corrupted process, and yet it has been for some time.

Another casing example of what I see as Politicians voting themselves a wrongful vested interest is in Parliamentary Superannuation entitlements.  If Gillard and Swan were to lose their seat in the Sept 2013 election – the value of their retirement package is estimated at near $6-7 million a piece.

Yet it is non contributory benefits scheme – that retirement value will be a direct drain on future taxpayers tax collections.   Swan has served since 1993, having missed a single term from 1996, Gillard has served since 1998.

Most working people work life extends 40+ years – and they contribute to their retirement package all their working lives.  Yet a politician is entitled to a life long pension based on a minimum of 8 years service regardless of age when they leave public office.  See table at left:

In Another sign of Gillards flippant regard for public funds – in the immediate weeks after Gillard deposed Rudd as PM – she began making drafting new laws to give Politicians a massive pay increase.  MP’s remunerations are linked to the parliamentary ‘base package’ voted upon by all Members and Senators.  In Dec 2011 they collectively voted themselves an increase in the ‘base package’ from $130k to $195k.

Yet in all the time since the GFC – Gillard and her Ministers have use the GFC to blame the economic downturn, and urged restraint for the Nation’s private sector, all the while allowing public spending to run amok.  The new $300 billion new debt is there to prove it.

There is an hypocrisy in the choices made by all MP’s on this recent pay rise – i.e. not one of the 150 MP’s from all sides of politics voted against the legislation to pass these salary increases.

It is not hard to hold scepticism about Leadership given some of the corruption scandals that have come to light in each of our lifetimes.  That sentiment has existed since time and leadership began.

We have to be in a position to have absolute trust in our Leaders and believe in a Government that is as absolute in its acceptance of moral and ethical standards.  The media largely cover the responsibility of ‘keeping Government’s honest’.

When the media abdicate their responsibility for vested favours from the Government – we are at the center of a corruption and ethical equation that has only one answer and headed to a single outcome.

Gillard is the perfect example of a corrupted person appointed to a position in which her predisposition is to lie and deceive all those around her.   The media are her friends and accept her version and refuse to challenge her on her credentials, the lies, the policy failures, and the multitude of mistakes made along the way.

The continued cover-up, and mis-representation of the Nations finances has added to the creation of  the ‘perfect-storm’.  The Government of the day sees nothing wrong with lying to and deceiving the public every day about their policy’s, about the extent of the Nations finances, the motives and agenda behind deceiving the electorate, and using the media to help sell their message of deceit.

With this complete mistrust in Gillard and her Cabinet of sycophants – my motive to pursue Gillards downfall is revealed with full disclosure.

The EYE-BALL Opinion plea for action:

A Note:  This site is dedicated to having Gillard as Prime Minster removed by all legal means in the shortest timeframe possible.

Gillard’s Government is poison to this Nation … how do we get rid of her now?

The message has to be sent – there are some 14 million registered voters represented by 150 MP’s – 72 of which are ALP.    If each of these 72 ALP MP’s received an e-mail, a fax, a phone call, or a letter from all the people who want her gone with a simple message like the one below –  :

This is a protest message …

… do you think it might motivate caucus …

Please – send this message to as many and as often as you can – bombard the Caucus Members with a message so clear and with weight of numbers that it will force them to act.

You could also think about sending it to the Independents, Oakeshott, Windsor, Wilkie, and Brandt,  as well … Katter already votes with the Coalition, and Slipper and Thompson are a lost cause and their fate already sealed.

    Even if one is stupid enough to put aside her penchant for committing fraud, telling lies, corrupting those around her and being morally wanting, she is still not fit to be Prime Minister. She is not intellectually capable and lacks any sense of leadership skills. She is as thick as a brick.

    The ‘not smart enough tag’ can probably be said for 90% of MP’s and 99% of Senators …

    There is no intelligence test, nor integrity test to get into Parliament … just a bunch of branch party members you need to convince with some well placed bribes and inducements …

    I agree Gillard lacks all the qualities of any honest or good Leadership … and we’ll see if Abbott’s got the goods soon enough … however I often ponder if the reason we get such ‘puff pastry’ for Leaders these days is because those who would make smart Leaders could not be bothered with the party loyalty thing …

    I’ve longed believed that our form of democracy is no longer an appropiate model for our style of governance – the people who vote for peole who make the decisions is not what we have – the people we elect are beholding to the party and whoever rules the party is who gets what they want.

    You are quite right about the leadership problem. In our current political climate it is hard to see a true leader being prepared to enter politics. And the fact that he would have to work with a mob of dummies is not the only hand brake he would have. The Canberra Press Gallery would not be able to handle a strong true leader, they would do everything in their power to destroy him/her. But of those available from within the system we should not forget Hawke and Howard, their problem was they let themselves down by staying in the leaders role for too long.

    Truth will always be subjective. Black and white are difficult polarities. Only today the High Court has ruled on Malicious Prosecutions. Just about all DPP matters have some element of maliciousness about them, but people turn a blind eye and support the justice system because of the hurdle of proof.

    We can think in the concept of “Beyond reasonable doubt” or “on a balance of probabilities”. If anyone was to face capital punishment, we insist they are found guilty beyond reasonable doubt. In equity issues we more tend to seek a balance of probabilities. When there are 2 conflicting accounts, and both appear quite believable, splitting the difference is really tough.

    Maximilien de Robespierre is a history that we should be ever mindful of. I for one do not like the concept of Sharia law. I am not an expert. But it stills frightens me.

    What also really gets me going is double standards. Craig Thomson should have been tried by now. The fact that there have been such ham fisted attempts at evidence gathering and prosecuting makes me believe that something untoward has occurred. The fact the we have a minority government adds to the aura. What is going on? Why has the justice system failed us? Now when we get to John Maitland yesterday admitting perjury in ICAC, We are right to squeal. More than that we can continue to squeal until the wrong has been righted. I don’t want the man beheaded, but I do believe that there are double standards. If John Maitland has made $15mio out of a coal mine etc he can afford legal representation beyond most.

    This is why we expect the highest standards from government and their mates. If anyone is to question how Obeid and McDonald and Thomson and Williamson have avoided proper proprietary and do it so as to ensure proper prosecution then job well done. What we see is a cancer that slowly eats away at our society.

    This cancer exists only because of apathy or ignorance. Hearing someone repeats themselves when they are trying to express a valid point, is much better than the spin, the selling our message, the advertising and corrupting of our modern society that we get each and every day.

    I truly doubt the AWU matter will ever be prosecuted the way that Pauline Hanson was.
