EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘Toothbrushes
Last Updated 11th June ’13
SmilingToothbrushes!!!

(Submitted by Dawn S.)

The kids filed into class Monday morning.  They were all very excited.

Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on salesmanship.

Little Sally led off.  “I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30″ she said proudly, “My sales approach was to appeal to the customer’s civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success.”  “Very good”, said the teacher.

Little Debbie was next. “I sold magazines” she said, “I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events.”   “Very good, Debbie”, said the teacher.

Eventually, it was Little Johnny’s turn. The teacher held her breath.  Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher’s desk.  “$2,467″, he said.

“$2,467!” cried the teacher, “What in the world were you selling?”

Toothbrushes”, said Little Johnny.

“Toothbrushes”, echoed the teacher, “How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?”

“I found the busiest corner in town”, said Little Johnny, “I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample.”

They all said the same thing, “Hey, this tastes like dog poop!”

Then I would say, “It is dog poop, you wanna buy a toothbrush?”

I used the Juliar Gillard(Oz Prime Minister) method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it’s free, and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth.”

Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. Bless his heart.

EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘The Promised Land’
Last Updated 8th May ’13
SmilingThe Promised Land!!!

(Submitted by Colin S.)

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel …

“Pick up your shovels, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land.”

Whitlam said to the people of Australia …

Put down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a Camel, this is the Promised Land.”

Today, Gillard has ….

Stolen your shovel, taxed your asses, put camels in plain packaging, and mortgaged the Promised Land!

I was so depressed last night thinking about Health Care Plans, the carbon tax, the economy, the wars, lost jobs, savings, Social Security, and retirement funds, I called a Suicide Hotline. I had to press 1 for English, and I was connected to a call centre in Pakistan .

I told them I was suicidal.

They got excited and asked if I could drive a truck …..

EYE-BALL JokeZone – Nelson at Trafalgar 2013!!!

EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘Nelson at Trafalgar 2013′
Last Updated 4th May ’13
SmilingNelson at Trafalgar 2013!!!

(Submitted by Roland A.)

Nelson: “Order the signal, Hardy.”

Hardy: “Aye, aye sir.”

Nelson: “Hold on, this isn’t what I dictated to Flags. What’s the meaning of this?”

Hardy: “Sorry sir?”

Nelson (reading aloud): ” … England expects every person to do his or her duty, regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, religious persuasion or disability.’ – What gobbledygook is this for God’s sake?”

Hardy: “Admiralty policy, I’m afraid, sir. We’re an equal opportunities employer now. We had the devil’s own job getting “England” past the censors, lest it be considered racist.”

Nelson: “Gadzooks, Hardy. Hand me my pipe and tobacco.”

Hardy: “Sorry sir. All naval vessels have now been designated smoke-free working environments.”

Nelson: “In that case, break open the rum ration. Let us splice the main brace to steel the men before battle.”

Hardy: “The rum ration has been abolished, Admiral. Its part of the Government’s policy on binge drinking.”

Nelson: “Good heavens, Hardy. I suppose we’d better get on with it full speed ahead.”

Hardy: “I think you’ll find that there’s a 4 knot speed limit in this stretch of water.”

Nelson: “Damn it man! We are on the eve of the greatest sea battle in history. We must advance with all dispatch. Report from the crow’s nest, please.”

Hardy: “That won’t be possible, sir.”

Nelson: “What?”

Hardy: “Health and Safety have closed the crow’s nest, sir. No harness; and they said that rope ladders don’t meet regulations. They won’t let anyone up there until proper scaffolding can be erected.”

Nelson: “Then get me the ship’s carpenter without delay, Hardy.”

Hardy: “He’s busy knocking up a wheelchair access to the foredeck Admiral.”

Nelson: “Wheelchair access? I’ve never heard anything so absurd.”

Hardy: “Health and safety again, sir. We have to provide a barrier-free environment for the differently abled.”

Nelson: “Differently abled? I’ve only one arm and one eye and I refuse even to hear mention of the word. I didn’t rise to the rank of admiral by playing the disability card.”

Hardy: “Actually, sir, you did. The Royal Navy is under-represented in the areas of visual impairment and limb deficiency.”

Nelson: “Whatever next? Give me full sail. The salt spray beckons.”

Hardy: “A couple of problems there too, sir. Health and safety won’t let the crew up the rigging without hard hats. And they don’t want anyone breathing in too much salt – haven’t you seen the adverts?”

Nelson: “I’ve never heard such infamy. Break out the cannon and tell the men to stand by to engage the enemy.”

Hardy: “The men are a bit worried about shooting at anyone, Admiral.”

Nelson: “What? This is mutiny!”

Hardy: “It’s not that, sir. It’s just that they’re afraid of being charged with murder if they actually kill anyone. There are a couple of legal-aid lawyers on board, watching everyone like hawks.”

Nelson: “Then how are we to sink the Frenchies and the Spanish?”

Hardy: “Actually, sir, we’re not.”

Nelson: “We’re not?”

Hardy: “No, sir.. The French and the Spanish are our European partners now. According to the Common Fisheries Policy, we shouldn’t even be in this stretch of water. We could get hit with a claim for compensation.”

Nelson: “But you must hate a Frenchman as you hate the devil.”

Hardy: “I wouldn’t let the ship’s diversity coordinator hear you saying that sir. You’ll be up on disciplinary report.”

Nelson: “You must consider every man an enemy, who speaks ill of your King.”

Hardy: “Not any more, sir. We must be inclusive in this multicultural age. Now put on your Kevlar vest; it’s the rules. It could save your life”

Nelson: “Don’t tell me – Health and Safety. Whatever happened to rum, sodomy and the lash?”

Hardy: As I explained, sir, rum is off the menu! And there’s a ban on corporal punishment.”

Nelson: “What about sodomy?”

Hardy: “I believe that is now legal, sir.”

Nelson: “In that case………………. Kiss me, Hardy.”

EYE-BALL JokeZone – Julia at the Pearly Gates – Heaven or Hell!!!

The-EYE-BALL-JokeZone
EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘Julia at the Bank’:
Last Updated 1st May ’13
SmilingJulia at the Pearly Gates – Heaven or Hell!!!

(Submitted by Adian B.)

While on her morning ride on her broomstick, Prime Minister Julia Gillard falls off, has a heart attack and dies because the ‘accident and emergency’ dept at her nearest hospital is too understaffed to treat her in time.

So her soul arrives in Heaven and she is met by Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. ‘Welcome to Heaven,’ says Saint Peter, ‘Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a Socialist around these parts, so we’re not sure what to do with you.’

‘No problem, just let me in; I’m a good Christian; I’m a believer,’ says the PM.

‘I’d like to just let you in, but I have orders from God. He says that since the implementation of his new HEAVEN CHOICES policy, you have to spend one day in Hell and one day in Heaven. Then you must choose where you’ll live for eternity.’

‘But I’ve already made up my mind. I want to be in Heaven,’ replies Gillard.

‘I’m sorry .. But we have our rules,’ Peter interjects. And, with that, St. Peter escorts her to a lift and she goes down, down, down ….all the way to Hell.

The doors open and she finds herself in the middle of a lush golf course.

The sun is shining in a cloudless sky. The temperature is a perfect 22°C. In the distance is a beautiful club-house. Standing in front of it are Gough Whitlam and thousands of other Socialist luminaries who had helped her out over the years — Bob Hawke, Paul Keating, etc., even Kevin Rudd – The whole of the Labor Party leaders were there (and all the socialists from other parts of the world..)

Everyone is laughing, happy, and casually but expensively dressed.

They run to greet her, to hug her (except Rudd who is still recovering from the stab wounds to his back!! ) and to reminisce about the good times they had getting rich at the expense of ‘suckers and peasants.’

They play a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster and caviar. The Devil himself comes up to Gillard with a frosty drink, ‘Have a tequila and relax, Julia!’

‘Uh, I can’t drink anymore; I took a pledge,’ says Gillard, dejectedly.

‘This is Hell, ma’am. You can drink and eat all you want and not worry and it just gets better from there!’

Gillard takes the drink and finds herself liking the Devil, who she thinks is a really very friendly bloke who tells funny jokes like herself and pulls hilarious nasty pranks, kind of like the ones the Labor Party pulled at the last election with their master strokes on Education, Immigration, National Broadband Network, Petrol prices, Carbon Tax, Mining Tax, Budget Surpluses, Solar schemes, National Broadband, Health Rebate, and Tough on Crime promises.

They are having such a great  time that, before she realises it, it’s time to go. Everyone gives her a big hug (except Rudd!) and waves as she steps into the lift and heads upward.

When the lift door reopen, she is in Heaven again and Saint Peter is waiting for her. ‘Now it’s time to visit Heaven,’ the old man says, opening the gate.

So for 24 hours Gillard is made to hang out with a bunch of honest, good-natured people who enjoy each other’s company, talk about things other than money and treat each other decently. Not a nasty prank or short-arse joke among them. No fancy country clubs here and, while the food tastes great, it’s not caviar or lobster. And these people are all poor. She doesn’t see anybody she knows and she isn’t even treated like someone special!

‘Whoa,’ she says uncomfortably to herself. ‘Gough Whitlam never prepared me for this!’

The day done, Saint Peter returns and says, ‘Well, you’ve spent a day in Hell and a day in Heaven. Now choose where you want to live for Eternity.’

With the ‘Deal or No Deal’ theme playing softly in the background, Gillard reflects for a minute  … Then answers:

‘Well, I would never have thought I’d say this — I mean, Heaven has been delightful and all — but I really think I belong in Hell with my friends.’

So Saint Peter escorts her to the lift and down she goes, down, down, all the way to Hell.

The doors of the lift open and she is in the middle of a barren scorched earth covered with garbage and toxic industrial wasteland, looking a bit like the eroded, rabbit and fox affected Australian outback, but worse and more desolate.

She is horrified to see all of her friends, dressed in rags and chained together, picking up the roadside rubbish and putting it into black plastic bags. They are groaning and moaning in pain, faces and hands black with grime.

The Devil comes over to Gillard and puts an arm around her shoulder.’ I don’t understand,’ stammers a shocked Gillard, ‘Yesterday I was here and there was a golf course and a club-house and we ate lobster and caviar and drank tequila.  We lazed around and had a great time.. Now there’s just a wasteland full of garbage and everybody looks miserable!’

The Devil looks at her, smiles slyly and purrs, ‘Yesterday we were campaigning; today you voted for us!

- Craig Thompson -
- there are no words to describe this GRUB …  -
| Author: EYE-BALL’s Harry’s Growl | 16th Oct 2012 |
The Grub of all Grubs is allowed to sit in the Australian House of Representatives every day Parliament sits.   He is a protect species – protected by a Labour Party slime that has infected our Nations Leaders with a morality that is destroying the soul of this Nation.

This peanut of a pissant – one of two that sit in the HOR’s as Independents, is named Craig Thompson, the other is Peter Slipper – two slime balls that allow this Government to remain in power.

Fair Work Australia (FWA) has disclosed that they have charged The ‘GRUB’ with some 67 charges of abuse and fraud according to documents filed with the Courts.

News report out yesterday indicate that the ‘GRUB’ is using the ‘Statute of Limitations’ that may shield himself from the Courts and the Justice he so richly deserves.

To reflect and get your head around how this Government  supported and voted against a motion bought on by the Opposition in the HOR’s earlier this year – gives a level of disgust and an aftertaste that will not go away until Gillard and her ‘jackboot’ caucus goes away.

Power corrupts – a statement of fact when it comes to summarising Gillard and her lust to cling to power.  Not only that – the continued support Thompson gives the Government whist now serving as an Independent gives real insight to the hypocrisy on display.

This Government is based on a corrupted past and its agenda from the outset has been about retaining power as opposed to serving the people of Australia.   Not one ALP MP crossed the floor to make a statement about Thompsons actions in defrauding Union funds, not one of them had courage enough to stand up and defend the integrity of the Parliament and our democracy.

If Thompson is guilty – then every ALP member is also guilty.  First and foremost in our democracy is the requirement for MP’s to vote their conscience above all else – their first allegiance is to the people they represent.  This is naive in the extreme, to think that our democracy is a true democracy is just turning a blind eye.  It’s a cry of hope more than anything – but it is futile to think it whilst the ALP’s defense of this ‘GRUB’ and the other ‘GRUB’ remains al with the purpose of retaining power – again Power corrupts …

Thompson is not a person who should be serving in our Parliament yet there he is – in full view and challenging anyone to remove him.   He retains the support of an equally corrupted PM who’s histort will surely sink her as it will Thompson.  For both these criminals to serve the high office entrusted to them is a reflection of our vetting system of chosing candidates.

The Australian Federal Police generally are responsible for misconduct in the Parliamentary arena, leaks, bribery, and inappropriate behaviour are all mandated as areas where the AFP get involved.   Where have they been in the HSU scandal and the AWU scandal?

This Government has a conflict and a vested interest in having Thompson and Slipper remain in Government.  Both go hand in hand with everyday dealings in this Government.  As the Ashby v Slipper scandal implodes the AG will be caught short when it comes to discovery of her involvement to have the ‘text transcripts’ suppressed and contained.

How can the public have any respect for politicians when this behaviour is representative and dish up day after day?

The full list of the 67 charges Thompson faces can be read using this link [PDF file format] – it runs to some 194 pages and is very thorough.

An ABC report on the filing of the charges can be read below:

Thomson case may have been filed too late


| Author: ABC | Date: 16th Oct 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

More than half the civil charges laid against independent MP Craig Thomson may have been initiated too late.

Fair Work Australia (FWA) has laid 62 civil charges against the former Labor MP over allegations he misspent funds on prostitutes and his 2007 election campaign while he was national secretary of the Health Services Union.

A total of 37 of the civil charges are for alleged breaches of the general duties imposed on officers of registered organisations.

But a separate Federal Court case is testing whether that type of charge should attract a two-year statute of limitations.

If that case is successful, it could provide a precedent for Mr Thomson to argue the general duties breaches he is facing are too old because they relate to allegations about his conduct five years ago.

FWA says it is in the public interest to pursue all 62 charges.

It says the maximum financial penalty that can be imposed by the court for each contravention of the general duties is $6,600.

Mr Thomson has continued to maintain he has done nothing wrong.

The Coalition has raised questions about whether Mr Thomson can afford to defend the legal action and pay any associated compensation costs if he is found guilty.

Under the constitution, any MP declared bankrupt is not allowed to continue serving in Parliament.

Senior Labor figures have already ruled out using party funds to help pay Mr Thomson’s legal fees.

But Mr Thomson has rejected suggestions he might go bankrupt and says he expects to win the case.

“I’m not raising that I’m going bankrupt, I’m not filing for bankruptcy, I’m proceeding in relation to a full defence of these matters and that’s where we’re going,” he told Sky News.

“Bankruptcy is not something we’ve looked at, thought about in any sense because we’re defending these issues.”

The Thomson case will begin in December.

Before the ALP threw Thompson out of the ALP – they had already provided in excess of $200,000 to cover his legal expenses to stave off a bankruptcy issue when he initially faced HSU fraud charges.   Had he been declared a bankrupt it would have  forced Thompson from Government.

Not only is he alleged to have defrauded HSU members to the tune of $500k – this $200k was more Union members funds used to cover his legal fees in a desperate bid for Gillard to cling to power.

This abuse of Union Members funds to protect this GRUB and the Governments numbers represents an even greater abuse of Union Members funds.   A crime to protect the crime as one could say …

The Government powerbrokers who made the choice to cover these legal costs had to have had approval from some Union heavy to do so after a request from someone in Government.  That person is now culpable in fostering a greater fraud on Union members because there will be no recovery of these funds.   It was not made as a loan, but a gifted amount to cover legal expenses.

The ABC report above indicates the time-lapse may see Thompson avoid almost half of his alleged frauds – how can justice be so slow to respond – the HSU spent almost two years investigating the original claims an that has to mitigate the statue time frame.   We wait and are forced to watch as our Government drags us over a cliff – god help us all.

It almost prompts a thought to do something drastic …

Last Weekend Bet Results:

  • 1 unit on Cowboys in NRL v Cronulla @ $2.20 win
  • 1 unit Adelaide Crows to win the AFL Minor Premiership @ $4.50. lost
  • I unit on Blues in AFL v St Kilda @ $2 lost
  • 1 unit on West Coast in AFL v Hawthorn @ $4.15 lost

A Decision Tree (for both NRL and AFL)

Each team now must win a minimum of 3 matches to win the comp. If a team finishing in top 4 loses in week one, they go through to grand final only by winning in weeks 2 and 3. If there was an easy match, (most predictable), odds would skew.  That is how markets are framed.

Manly and Storm in NRL, while Hawthorn and Sydney?? are now predicted to fight out the Grand Final. I can’t see it. I would need at least $7 on any of those to get interested.   For positions 5 to 8 I would require about $15 to get interested. The bookies percentages influence all of this, including outstanding bets. I am now interested in match play, more than eventual winner.

Last Weekend Bet Results:

  • 1 unit on Cowboys (NRL )over Saints @ $1.55 collect 1.55, plus
  • ½ unit on North Melbourne (AFL) @ $3.25 collect 1.625 total 3.175,
  • ½ unit on Newcastle to defeat Manly (again) @ $3.00, lost and
  • ½ unit on Essendon (AFL) @ $2.15, lost;

Therefore 3.175 less stake 2.5 represents 22.5 positive index points. My wager on Adelaide Crows to win minor premiership is highly likely worthless given their shock loss to Brisbane Lions.

- Australian Gangsters Inc – Part III -
- Gillard and the ALP by another name!!!
| Author: EYE-BALL’s Harry’s Growl | 18th Aug 2012 |
The Gillard AWU scandal made small gains through the week – a journalist from News Ltd found himself on the unemployed list after his question to Gillard on Monday last about Slater and Gordon requesting AWU for permission to release documents.

Gillards expression when the question was asked in the middle of her press conference on the Huston Asylum report said it all.  She was not happy.But at least some journalist had the balls to put the question in the first place.

Some News sources have come out and covered the story from the PM’s side of the fence. One questions whether this is clandestine defence aimed at keeping the story alive, or genuine concern for the damage the story is doing to Gillard’s creditability.

This story gains or loses creditability of a number of issues:

  1. The ALP Caucus – how many of them knew of the AWU scandal and Gillard’s status as a Lawyer before she entered Politics?
  2. After Paul Howes stated in relation to the HSU affair, that he will do anything to help clean and clear out Union corruption – why is he hesitating in granting permission to allow Slater and Gordon to release confidential documents pertaining to the AWU scandal 1992-95?  If not just to clear up the facts surrounding her accusers, and to allow the Police to do their job in pursuing the people who committed the alleged crimes.

‘The Australia’ ran a follow-up story to the Ralph Blewitt story they did two weeks ago – this was concerning an interview with a former S&G equity Partner named – Nick Styant-Browne.  That story is produced below:

Revealed: Julia Gillard lost her job after law firm’s secret investigation


| Author: HEDLEY THOMAS, NATIONAL CHIEF CORRESPONDENT | Date: 18th Aug 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

JULIA Gillard left her job as a partner with law firm Slater & Gordon as a direct result of a secret internal probe in 1995 into controversial work she had done for her then boyfriend, a union boss accused of corruption, The Weekend Australian can reveal.

Nick Styant-Browne, a former equity partner of the firm, broke a 17-year silence yesterday to reveal that the firm’s probe included a confidential formal interview with the Prime Minister – then an industrial lawyer – on September 11, 1995, which was “recorded and transcribed”.

In the interview, Ms Gillard stated that she could not categorically rule out that she had personally benefited from union funds in the renovation of her Melbourne house, according to Mr Styant-Browne.

She said in the interview that she believed she had paid for all the work and materials, and had receipts, which she later produced.

The firm’s probe revolved around Ms Gillard’s work since mid-1992 for the Australian Workers Union and her then boyfriend – the AWU’s ambitious leader at the time, Bruce Wilson – as well as her direct role in establishing the AWU Workplace Reform Association for Mr Wilson.

Mr Styant-Browne’s revelations today mark the first time that anyone among the former and present partners of her employer before she started her political career has spoken on the record about matters that have controversially dogged Ms Gillard since 1995.

Mr Styant-Browne, now a Seattle-based lawyer, said the partnership “took a very serious view” of these and other matters, “and accepted her resignation”.

“The firm was scrupulous to ensure these matters were both properly investigated and Ms Gillard was given every opportunity to explain her involvement,” Mr Styant-Browne said. “Ms Gillard conveyed to me that she thought she had been ‘shabbily’ treated after eight years of service.”

In response to a series of detailed questions from The Weekend Australian, a spokesman for Ms Gillard said last night she had “made clear that she was not involved in any wrongdoing, and has dealt with these allegations previously”. “The Prime Minister maintains good relations with Slater & Gordon,” he said.

The legal entity that Ms Gillard began to establish for Mr Wilson from mid-1992 was used by Mr Wilson and his then friend, AWU bagman and West Australian branch head Ralph Blewitt, to allegedly corruptly receive hundreds of thousands of dollars from large companies.

The companies were told their money would pay for safety and training of AWU members on major work sites. However, the funds were allegedly siphoned off for purposes including the personal use of Mr Wilson and Mr Blewitt. At the time, the AWU’s then national leaders, Ian Cambridge and Bill Ludwig, were not made aware of the entity’s existence. They were unaware that large sums of money had been going into accounts linked to the association, and that those funds were subsequently withdrawn by Mr Wilson and Mr Blewitt for purposes including the purchase of a $230,000 house in Kerr Street, Fitzroy. Mr Cambridge called on the federal Labor government to establish a royal commission into what he regarded as serious and criminal rorting by union officials.

Ms Gillard has repeatedly and strenuously denied that she had any knowledge of what the association that she had set up was going to be used for. She has also denied receiving any benefit from the funds. She has repeatedly rejected claims made in parliament that renovations to her own house in Melbourne in the early-to-mid 1990s were part-funded by money allegedly siphoned off by Mr Wilson.

Mr Styant-Browne revealed yesterday that Ms Gillard had said in her formal interview on September 11, 1995, that “she could not categorically deny AWU union or (AWU) Workplace Reform Association monies” had been used in the renovation of her own house in Melbourne. He said she had subsequently produced receipts for work done on the Abbotsford property.

In a two-page statement to The Weekend Australian, Mr Styant-Browne also revealed unusual circumstances surrounding what he described as Ms Gillard’s “legal and related work to establish the AWU Workplace Reform Association in Western Australia”.

He said that in her formal interview, Ms Gillard had confirmed that “she did not open a file at the firm” to establish the association, and that she could not at the time recall any reason why a file was not opened. He said that she had stated that no other lawyer at the firm worked on the matter, and “to her recollection, no other lawyer was consulted”. She stated in the interview that she “was not involved in opening or operating any bank accounts for the association,” Mr Styant-Browne said.

Referring to the recorded interview, Mr Styant-Browne said: “She understood the purpose of the association was to hold re-election funds for union officials contributed by individual union members and fundraisers. She stated it was referred to as a re-election or slush fund. She had been in a relationship with Mr Wilson for nearly four years commencing in late 1991.

“She and Mr Wilson attended the auction of 85 Kerr Street, Fitzroy in early 1993 where Mr Wilson made a successful bid for the house which was purchased in the name of Ralph Blewitt. Mr Blewitt did not attend the auction. She understood the house was a property investment made by Mr Blewitt, and that Mr Wilson would live there as a trusted tenant. She believed this arrangement suited them both.

“She had extensively renovated her own house in Abbotsford. Mr Wilson had assisted in the renovations. She believed she had paid for all the work and materials, and had receipts which she agreed to produce. She was aware someone had sought payment from the AWU for work and materials he had supplied for the house. He was mistaken or misinformed. But she could not categorically deny AWU union or Workplace Association monies had been used for any of the work. As at the time of the interview, her relationship with Mr Wilson had recently ended.”

Mr Styant-Browne said the conduct of Slater & Gordon in waiving its conveyancing fee for the purchase of the Fitzroy house and lending $150,000 to complete the sale was not unusual.

“Like many law firms, Slater & Gordon regularly did discounted or free conveyances for clients who held office in its client corporations or organisations. Like any labour law firm, the fees for these conveyances for union officials were regularly waived, ” he said.

“Slater & Gordon conducted a solicitors’ contributory mortgage practice, which made loans secured by first mortgage over properties up to a percentage of a sworn valuation obtained for the specific purpose of the loan. A partner of the firm was designated as the trustee for the mortgage on behalf of the contributors, and signed the mortgage in that capacity. Legal fees or disbursements for the mortgage formed part of the loan, as was the case for the Kerr Street mortgage. The Kerr Street conveyance and mortgage were both unexceptionable transactions for the firm’s conveyancing and mortgage practice.

“As for the florid allegations suggesting a cover-up by Slater & Gordon made in some radio interviews and online media, they are utterly absurd.”

Explaining his reasons for speaking out after a long silence, Mr Styant-Browne, 54, who is not a member of any political party, said: “It has recently become clear to me that there is a genuine public interest in this story, which has prompted my statement now”.

The Australian revealed earlier this month that Mr Wilson’s former close friend, Mr Blewitt, wanted to expose the extent of his alleged scam with Mr Wilson, and that he would admit his own wrongdoing if he received an indemnity from prosecution. Mr Blewitt, 66, said: “My greatest fear is that I incriminate myself but this has to come out now”.

The Australian has also reported that internal documents, newly released under Freedom of Information, from an exhaustive police probe at the time show detectives suspected Mr Wilson and Mr Blewitt, were “crooks” and wanted them criminally prosecuted over a $400,000-plus alleged fraud. The documents from the police file include letters showing leaders of the AWU, which remains the most influential industrial supporter of the federal Labor government, were deeply annoyed that the two men were not charged with criminal offences.

The managing director of Slater & Gordon, Andrew Grech, has begun contacting its former clients including Mr Blewitt, Mr Wilson and the AWU, “asking that they agree to waive their right to legal privilege attaching to lawyer-client communication so that we can respond to the public allegations that have been made”.

“We are not prepared to have our firm’s reputation impugned by the allegations relating to these matters, which occurred almost two decades ago,” Mr Grech told The Australian last week.

This story is a soft-pedal compared with the Pickering offerings.  But then the PM blackmailed News Ltd and Fairfax in Sept 2011 when this story first broke to be carefull in running this story again.

What Gillard has over the mainstream media is wildly speculated upon, anything from ‘phone hacking’ to AFP evidence of other types of illegal activities.  Whatever it is it is sufficient to have the mainstream media very wary of overstepping boundaries.  The sacked News reporter during the week being an example of how sensitive the story is.

It has been noticeable that named Law firms associated with this scandal, i.e. Slater and Gordon, and Maurice Blackburn have both stepped up media advertising campaigns across Eastern States.  In a cynical context this could be seen as an attempt to paint themselves a different shade of ‘grey’ given their silence and implication in this matter for so long.

They obviously feel that the scandal will do them harm – hence the beefed up advertising – this confirms they hiding and guilty of something – what that might be will hopefully be revealed in the near future.

The other interesting point of discussion is the ‘Pickering Post’ website closure.  Pickering via his Facebook page has claimed that the site was attacked by a DDoS – [Denial of Service].   Contact with a staffer at the ISP server – [crazydomains.com.au] confirmed it was a server overload problem caused by the public’s interest in the site.

This overload would have been caused by the radio promo’s about this story Pickering did in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane during the week. The ISP indicated the site needed a designated server to handle the traffic being generated,  all they could do was suspend the service to protect their other clients and their services being further disrupted.

This slant on his site problems is far different to the story put out there by Pickering about a DDoS attack.  A comment request to have him clear it up has not received a response.   All Pickering has to do is pay for a designated server – about $2k a year – and the traffic problem would be solved – if that really is the problem.

The scandal story thus far has both sides, and all the players in the middle telling ‘porkies’ mixed with some truth, a reluctance to answer questions, and all the while some serious accusations are being floated in the public domain and the public are enraged.

How dare a PM be involved in this sort of scandal?  How dare she bring this type of disrepute upon Australia and in the eyes of the rest of the World?

Gillard must come clean and clear up the smear to her Prime Ministership. Failure to do so and the longer she stays silent – only confirms she is involved in some capacity.   Her status and creditability as someone who is deserving to serve as Prime Minister – has to be fully explained and clarified.   If she has guilt of any kind – then to protect the office of the Prime Minster she should resign voluntarily.

If her past is ‘shady’ and her involvement with Wilson and Blewitt is as has been alleged – nothing short of dismissal by the GG is acceptable unless she resigns of her own accord.   The Independents on this matter also have to be convinced to bring about a scenario where she no longer has the support of the House.

In an after thought way – this type of ‘shady’ past confirmation surely prompts the question about the existing vetting process of potential Federal and State Parliamentarians.

It also asks us to try and understand how the ALP and the MP’s serving in the House and Senate could have allowed someone with an exposed scandal in their history to become the PM.   Their hope that this scandal would never see the light of day gives insight to one of the many things wrong with the way Politicians behave and mislead the public.

How must Kevin Rudd feel – how do millions of Labour supporters feel at the moment – shortchanged is about as good as it can be explained.

The Opinion polls indicate the PM has been on the nose for a very long time.  That stench is real and this scandal proves the point – the electorate can always sniff out a flawed person.  Pity they could not have done it before the 2010 election.

Here is a scenario … Shorten and Arbib along with Paul Howes as the Ludwig AWU stooge, plotted Rudd’s downfall because Rudd wanted nothing to do with promoting Union hardliners into his Cabinet.

Gillard who owes Arbib for her seat in Parliament after she was unable to gain pre-selection anywhere in Victoria at either State of Federal level after the AWU scandal – he took her in so to speak and re-invented her creditability as a Unionist and now she owes the Unions big time.

You only have to review her inaction against Craig Thompson of HSU fame to tick that box.   She is only serving as the PM on the strength of Union support.

Shorten knows of Gillard’s past as does Arbib.  Arbib jumps ship after the Leadership spill in Mar 2012.  Shorten is now only a heart beat away and only has to pick his timing as to when he squeals and lets the AWU scandal out of the bag.

But before that happens he is caught up in his own sordid mess when a story is leaked that he shagged a staffed and got her pregnant.  The GG is not happy, and that is the other witches brew ingredient – Shorten is her son-in-law -  oh what a tangled web we weave … when we plot and try to deceive …

This story has many more weeks to play out – Pickering’s motive might be because Facebook banned him when he painted the PM with a massive ‘black dildo’ strapped on and pointed at those she wanted to intimidate.   It was true and brilliant Aussie humour.  Pickering was not pleased and this might have been where and when Pickering decided to ‘go after the bitch’.

  • 1 unit on Gold Coast Titans to finish in NRL top 8 written off,

  • For 5 units outlaid, collect 4.675, therefore index minus 10.83333

Post Match Review:

Each team is rated according to serious contention for final prospects. Example Broncos led 14 nil and were defeated 22 – 14 by Canterbury. In those circumstances, the Broncos were not shamed, given expectation. Their first 2 tries showed great entreprise. Doggies supporters would actually like to see their team lose one before semi finals. Canterbury despite their player issues showed good grit. Broncos defence was improved. Overall rating Dogs 8.5 out of 10, Broncos 6.5.

AFL Round 20

  • West Coast v GeelongWest Coast won 16.6.102 – 15.7.97, Geelong won 1st Quarter, West Coast won 2nd quarter, 3rd quarter and final quarter. West Coast 8 Geelong 4.5
  • Adelaide v Fremantle Adelaide 7 Fremantle 3.5
  • Swans v Collingwood Swans 8.5 Collingwood 9.5
  • Bombers v North North 7 Essendon 4.5

NRL Round 23

  • Souths v Manly Souths 4.5 Manly 8.5
  • Storm v Titans Storm 7 Titans 4.5
  • Tigers v Saints Tigers 5.5 Saints 2
  • Cowboys v Warriors Cowboys 7.5 Warriors 0
  • Panthers v Raiders Panthers 1.5 Raiders 2.5
  • Dogs v Broncos Canterbury 8.5 Brisbane 6.5
  • Knights v Sharks Newcastle 9 Cronulla 2.5

Explanation

This is further used in Dynamic Appraisal.

  • There were so many moments in individual matches over the recent weekend and overall run to semi finals. Glenn Stewart targeted John Sutton in the first 10 minutes, Sutton was not thereafter in the match, Manly won easily, made Souths look second rate. Souths momentum falters and Manly’s prowess overall improved relatively. Reflected in betting Manly now co favourites to win premiership.
  • Titans fought hard in 1st half to go to sleep early in the second half. Storm put on two classy tries, and Titans could not cope. Loss of Bailey and Harrison, is normal stuff. Deal with what comes! Tigers could spring a massive upset, but recent form is still pretty poor. Should have won by a mile if they are really serious. Cowboys just keep flying under the radar. Sure Warriors are washed up, but they can still cause an upset, who Panthers in R24, Saints in R25 or Raiders in R26, 11 wins now looks ridiculous.
  • Raiders may just continue to threaten but total waste of time.
  • Dogs very impressive, Broncos showed some grit, with a terror run still in front.

The Weekends Forecast:

Auto Regressive Odds Appraisal: (likely grand final appearance – grand final win, a dynamic momentum approach)

  • Sydney Swans 85% (odds required $6.10) Tab Price $5.00
  • Adelaide Crows 81% (odds required $6.92) Tab Price $7.00
  • Collingwood Magpies 87% ($5.96) Tab Price $4.00
  • Hawthorn Hawks 89% ($5.83) Tab Price $2.50

  • Fremantle Dockers 39% ($27.31) Tab Price $151.00
  • Essendon Bombers 24% ($43.25) Tab Price $251.00

Nota Bene:

Collingwood appeared in the Grand Final in 2006 from 5th position. No other team has made the Grand Final from 5th to 8th position. The make up of the top 4 is difficult to predict. This makes an analysis difficult. Hawthorn, Sydney and Adelaide do appear most likely. In NRL things are different slightly.

Last Weekend Updates:

  • Collect on Geelong 2.625, lose on Panthers (NRL), Lose on parlay (West Coast AFL), Lose on Sharks (Super Rugby), 1 unit last week, ½ unit from May, lose on Olympic gold medal bet (2 units). Net loss 2.875 units.
  • In NRL Manly show they are not finished, Sharks and Storm recover some prowess, I am not yet convinced from Storm perspective or Tigers. Broncos really need a friend. Battle for 8th spot is definitely not over. Wooden Spoon is now between Panthers and Eels.
  • Super Rugby NZ’s Waikato Chiefs were awesome. I got knocked around. The overall strength of NZ in that light has really killed the Southern 4 Nations from my perspective. Even should Wallabies win on Saturday week at Sydney’s Olympic Park, I won’t get interested. Australia would need to give them an absolute pasting to re kindle interest.
  • AFL is really getting big but only for a few teams. Their draw is simply not a level playing field, and will have to addressed for future years. So much fun available this weekend, lop sided starts and prices. Only 2 matches I can’t see any interest in.
  • My Olympic Australia’s gold medal tally has come home on the back of a wet sail, a little to few, a little to late. At best we might finish with maybe 7, and placed about 9th on International standings.

The leaks in this story just keep coming – there is nowhere for Gillard to hide anymore.  The latest mainstream media update since the last post on this story appeared in ‘The Australian’ over the weekend – see below:

Scandal refuses to die!
| Authors: Hedley Thomas| 3rd Aug 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

IT is a chilly afternoon and a 66-year-old one-time union bagman with a smoker’s cough and a guilty conscience is on a trip down memory lane through the inner suburbs of Melbourne.

Ralph Blewitt is revisiting old haunts and recalling his role and the conduct of others that fundamentally changed his life.

The Vietnam veteran’s actions destroyed his standing with the Australian Labor Party, abruptly ended his union career, and led him into self-imposed exile in Malaysia.

The 1995 discovery of his role as a bent union organiser who helped siphon off hundreds of thousands of dollars would plunge the Australian Workers Union into national turmoil for several years, provoke a blizzard of Industrial Court cases, trigger two serious fraud investigations by police on opposite sides of the country, and send several of Labor’s future federal cabinet ministers into legal and factional battle against each other.

As Blewitt says during his visit to Melbourne between conferences with criminal lawyers: “I would like the whole thing to go away, quite frankly, but I don’t think it will. I think that the story needs to be told. I need to clear the air. I do not want to be hounded about it forever.

“I could face criminal charges. I will make myself available (to police) on that one condition that I have immunity from prosecution. In the course of that, if certain people are embarrassed or worse, it’s too bad.”

Blewitt’s crime was to participate in a financial scandal. He tells The Australian he was the sidekick, not the architect.

As the AWU and the police, in newly released Freedom of Information documents, have long claimed, the alleged architect was Bruce Wilson, one of the union’s up-and-coming stars, then the branch head in Victoria and a good friend of Blewitt.

Wilson allegedly set up the suspected scam, calling the shots, extracting hundreds of thousands of dollars from building companies on a false pretence, and enjoying the benefits.

But all these years later, the scandal dogs one person more than any other. It is Julia Gillard, the union’s former lawyer, who has herself denied accusations of wrongdoing made in parliament.

At the time, she was an ambitious partner in the industrial unit at the firm Slater & Gordon, which acted for the AWU, Wilson and Blewitt. She was Wilson’s girlfriend. And she was destined for politics.

It is important to understand that while the alleged fraud – in which Blewitt now, for the first time, acknowledges his own direct role – is a colourful chapter of AWU and Labor folklore, some of the facts have remained elusive.

For 17 years, it has been like a mirage that shimmers with untold promise, only to dissolve against a backdrop of legal threats, libel risk, and the determination of the two men at the centre of the allegations that can still be prosecuted, Wilson and Blewitt, to keep their mouths shut.

Disgraced and run out of the AWU, both men found the game became self-preservation.

Wilson and Blewitt were determined to stay out of prison by remaining quiet and a step ahead of police in Victoria and Western Australia.

Since 1995, the stubborn silence of these men contributed to a public vacuum. Into this vacuum went innuendo, half-truths, and serious allegations, made in politically charged attacks under the protection of parliamentary privilege.

It would have lost its currency in the media and the blogosphere if not for one element – the political rise of Gillard. She has been repeatedly attacked in parliament over her actions and knowledge at the time.

The Australian has previously reported that the Prime Minister has strenuously and emphatically rejected claims about her role as Wilson’s solicitor, including that she improperly received financial benefits from missing funds, and that she had set up the accounts that received the funds. She has always denied she did anything untoward and has accused her detractors of cowardice and lies.

A fortnight before Labor’s 2007 election win, she spoke of her relationship with Wilson when she was at Slater & Gordon and in her early-to-mid 30s. The 2007 story by senior political journalist Glenn Milne in The Sunday Telegraph was headlined “A conman broke my heart”.

“I was young and naive,” Gillard said at the time. “I was in a relationship, which I ended, and obviously it was all very distressing. I am by no means the first person to find out that someone close turns out to be different to what you had believed them to be. I was obviously hurt when I was later falsely accused publicly of wrongdoing.”

Milne and another journalist who investigated the matter again late last year, broadcaster Michael Smith of Fairfax Radio, lost their paid roles after a furious reaction by Gillard and her office to their renewed interest and handling of the story. Andrew Bolt, The Herald Sun’s conservative commentator, has persistently asked questions about Gillard’s role.

Gillard’s spokesman Sean Kelly replied to a detailed email and specific questions from me yesterday with a brief comment: “Again, I’d refer you to previous comments on the matter. Genuinely appreciate you coming to us.”

For Blewitt, however, it is now time to talk. He has been persuaded to come clean by Harry Nowicki, a former industrial lawyer for the Builders Labourers Federation and now a retired personal injury lawyer.

Nowicki says he finds the case professionally fascinating, and fodder for a book he is researching on the AWU. His investigations led him to Blewitt’s door.

But Blewitt has a cast-iron caveat. He wants indemnity from prosecution. As he tells The Australian in a series of interviews: “My lawyers have told me that if I seek to tell the whole story, they will seek immunity from prosecution for me.

“I have not spoken publicly about these issues before. I am not a member of any political party now and I have no intention of rejoining one. I left Australia (to live in Asia) in 1997 and I have not voted since. I have got no illusions about this.”

As we drive through Melbourne, Blewitt points out a modest house in Abbotsford that he occasionally used to visit to see its then owner, Gillard.

He harks back to her days at Slater & Gordon when she was Wilson’s girlfriend and the union lawyer on AWU-related and industrial matters.

Old hotels, bars and cafes where he says the three would meet for a drink or a meal flash by as the car heads towards a terrace house in Kerr St, Fitzroy.

Blewitt admires the Fitzroy property with pride and tries to calculate its present value (more than $750,000). He says that he was a frequent visitor.

“It was a fantastic location and a good piece of real estate. I would get a carton of wine or beer delivered to the front door from the shop on the corner,” he recalls.

The devil is in the detail. Official purchase documents and parts of the Slater & Gordon file show that it was bought in Blewitt’s name in 1993 for $230,000.

It was a significant sum then for Blewitt, a modestly paid union organiser already burdened with a house in Perth, a mortgage and financial commitments to his wife and children. The Fitzroy house was also the most valuable property Blewitt ever “owned”.

For practical purposes, however, it was Wilson’s home for the scandal-hit three years in which he ran the AWU in Victoria, and little more than a comfortable pad for Blewitt on regular visits from Western Australia. He and others regarded it as Wilson’s joint.

But there was always a problem, a dirty little secret; while his name was on the title documents, Blewitt could not have legitimately owned the property. He never had the personal assets or income to afford it in the first place.

The truth, as the AWU’s clean-skin national head Ian Cambridge and his then solicitor, Robert McClelland, discovered during a bitter investigation and multi-faceted legal fight in the 1990s, was that the Fitzroy property was part-purchased with the financial spoils from the alleged fraud perpetrated by Wilson and Blewitt, using the AWU and its bogus AWU Workplace Reform Association.

Cambridge, now a commissioner for Fair Work Australia, was furious about the purchase of the Fitzroy house he claimed pointed to the suspected siphoning of funds. In a letter written to Laurie Brereton, who was the then labour minister, Cambridge warned that the matters relating to the union’s missing funds “can only, in my opinion, be resolved by a judicial inquiry or royal commission”.

“Quite frankly, I am now certain the Victorian affair goes a lot deeper than I first suspected and I am afraid that underlying the whole mess may be issues of serious corruption,” he said.

Documents obtained by The Australian show that in his relentless pursuit of the alleged fraud and the missing funds, Cambridge sought Slater & Gordon’s documents relating to Blewitt and the transactions surrounding the house at Kerr St, Fitzroy.

The record shows that the firm’s then senior partner, Peter Gordon, wrote to the Industrial Relations Court on August 26, 1996 to acknowledge “a copy of a subpoena for production of records directed to this firm with respect to a file held by this office with respect to a former client, Mr Ralph Blewitt”. By then, Gillard had departed Slater & Gordon, which had abruptly ceased acting for Wilson and Blewitt.

Gordon told the court registrar that “we have no option but to maintain a claim of privilege on behalf of our former client (Blewitt)” in relation to the Blewitt file.

In a subsequent handwritten letter that Gordon forwarded to the court, Blewitt wrote: “Please be advised that I wish to maintain privilege over the conveyancing file for the property, 1/85 Kerr St, Fitzroy. Would you please advise (the court) and further request that the file and all related documentation to myself at the following address.”

Blewitt makes no allegations against Gordon nor does The Australian suggest Gordon was involved in or aware of any wrongdoing. In breaking his silence, Blewitt now acknowledges that Cambridge, Bill Ludwig and their then solicitor, Robert McClelland, Australia’s future attorney-general, were right about the allegations.

Blewitt is adamant that he should not take the fall. He tells The Australian: “I knew there were sham transactions. I knew at the time it was wrong. “My greatest fear is that I incriminate myself but this has to come out now.”

This story regains some creditability for Murdoch’s flagship publication. The stories about how Murdoch’s Auustralian boss John Hartigan, and the Fairfax Media empire rolled over under Gillards threats last year, placed severe implications on the integrity of the Australian media.

Since this story ran over the weekend other mainstream publications have not followed – in fact it’s a ‘lone wolf’ effort from all of the collective moral integrity that our most respected journalists are prepared to put on display.

The Sunday edition of the ABC’s ‘Insiders’ – [IView Link - valid for a month or so] – did not go there – nor The ‘Bolt Report’ who went everywhere else – [See YouTube video here - Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 ...] – and all Australia continues to wait to see this history making drama play itself out in the public arena.

Monday came and ‘Blog-Land’ exploded with new material. Leading the charge was ‘The Pickering Post’ with the following story:

The Princess and The Pea

| Authors: Paul Zanetti | 7th Aug 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

I can’t help thinking about the Princess and the pea. You remember that old Hans Christian Andersen fable? It’s been on my mind a bit lately.

There’s our dear leader lying on a dozen soft mattresses, yet she can’t sleep at night. There’s a pea under the lowest mattress that keeps irritating her. No matter how hard she tries to ignore it, that pea will not go away.

Cartoonists think in images and metaphors. This one will probably become a cartoon.

The pea is Gillard’s past. Her murky affair with a crook in the mid-1990s keeps coming back to haunt her. Why? Because she refuses to answer questions about it. There are so many questions and no answers. Her only official responses have been general brush-offs such as, “I was young and naive” and “please refer to my previous answer” (ie. “I was young and naive”).

If you’re not up on the enveloping scandal, Julia Gillard was a union lawyer and partner working at Slater & Gordon in Victoria in the early to mid 1990s. She handled the affairs of the Australian Workers Union (AWU), the most powerful union in the country; the same union that recently arranged for the knifing of popularly elected sitting PM, Kevin Rudd, to replace him with the union-aligned Gillard.

While working for the AWU at Slater & Gordon, Gillard fell for then AWU official, Bruce Wilson. Wilson had Gillard set up an incorporated association in WA. She has confirmed this (but says she did not know what it was used for). Her handwriting is on the documents.

This was a dummy association, a fraud. It was set up without any authorisation from the AWU. Then lawyer Gillard did not consult the AWU about it. She applied for it to be named the AWU Workplace Reform Association knowing it was not within the rules of the AWU and that a union cannot be an association. That dummy incorporated association was then used to set up a bank account for the purpose of siphoning hundreds of thousands of dollars from a West Australian Government training scheme, the Building Construction Industry Training Fund (BCTIF) into which developers and contractors paid a levy meant to fund training in the construction industry.

Wilson funnelled funds meant to train construction workers into the bank account of the Gillard-established dummy association for his own benefit. He arranged for developers such as Thiess to pay into this account which became Wilson’s personal cash cow for expenditures such as a home purchase at 85 Kerr Street, Fitzroy, (in the name of Wilson’s partner in the bank account, fellow unionist, Ralph Blewitt, with Wilson’s signature on the cheque), renovations and thousands of dollars spent at a women’s fashion house.

Gillard arranged for a large loan on the Kerr Street house from her law firm, Slater and Gordon and for the conveyancing.

The bank account operated between April 1992 and April 1995 at which time the fraud began to unravel when tradesmen and contractors pursued the AWU for unpaid renovation works at the Kerr Street house (where Wilson and Gillard were reported to be living, according to union witnesses at the time), and on Gillard’s Abbottsford home. The AWU had no idea what these unpaid invoices were for. They had not contracted the works.

AWU officials Bill Ludwig and Ian Cambridge went straight to the lawyers and had a 38 page itemised forensic affidavit drawn up by then partner at Sydney firm Turner Freeman, Robert McClelland, who later got dumped by Gillard as Attorney General when he backed Rudd, not her, at the last leadership ballot. The police needed more evidence on the house. Slater and Gordon closed ranks, refused to release the files based on ‘client privilege’, with the client being Ralph Blewitt, Wilson’s partner. Those files remain hidden – possibly until now.

The accounts operated by Wilson and Blewitt, established by Gillard’s dummy association, have been described by Ludwig and Cambridge as ‘unauthorised’, ‘invalid’, ‘irregular’ and used for ‘possibly illegal purposes’.

Ian Cambridge (now a Fair Work Australia Commissioner), swore in the McClelland-prepared affidavit, “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 and obtaining proper authority from the union”.

Gillard was sacked from Slater and Gordon. The firm tried to distance itself from the affair. She never practised law again and was unemployed for six months, later getting a Joan Kirner arranged job in the Victorian Opposition Leader, John Brumby’s office to try to resurrect her fortunes. The Kerr Street house was soon sold and the money from the sale never recovered by the AWU (believed to have benefited Wilson). Wilson and Blewitt were removed from the AWU. Blewitt ended up in self imposed exile in Asia. Wilson is believed to have changed his identity and hiding out as a cook in a club in Newcastle in NSW.

In 2007, Sunday Telegraph reporter, Glenn Milne interviewed then deputy opposition leader Julia Gillard about this unresolved affair. Rather than clarify, she went on to say she was ‘young and naive’ at the time she was involved. Her birth date shows she was around 34 – 35 years old at the time (1993 – 1995) and a partner in an industrial law firm working for the biggest and most powerful union in the country. Young and naive? How many law firms appoint young and naive people as partners?

Unsatisfied (like an itch that needs constant scratching), Milne revisited the story a year ago for The Australian in print and online.

Gillard went ballistic. She called News Ltd Chairman, John Hartigan at 8:00 am on the morning of publication, August 29, 2011, making threats and demands. She threatened a UK style phone hacking enquiry and media regulation unless he (a) pulled the story from the online edition (b) issued an apology and (c) assured her the story would never see the light of day again. Hartigan complied with the first two of her three demands. The last thing he wanted was Rupert put through the wringer in Australia, too. Radio 2UE broadcaster, Michael Smith was about to interview former AWU official, Bob Kernohan, who had signed an affidavit exposing much of the scandal. Kernohan has been bashed and had bullets mailed to him as he has sought to recover the missing monies and hold Wilson, Blewitt and Gillard to account. Smith’s interview was pulled at the last minute before it was due to go to air, believed to be by intervention from senior management. Smith was sacked from 2UE. It had been previously cleared by lawyers. Some other force had intervened senior management.

Irritated, then angered by Gillard’s threats and muzzling of the free press, legendary Aussie cartoonist Larry Pickering has been digging deep and spoken to many of those involved. Some weeks ago, he established a new investigative website, The Pickering Post (www.pickeringpost.com). Here, he would run stories others feared to run. Larry asked me to get involved as a contributor and co-founder and editor. I’ve seen first hand the documents and material that support the story(s). I’ve witnessed dozens of correspondence emails. I’ve come to the conclusion the Prime Minister was not as ‘young and naive’ as she would like us all to believe.

The Pickering Post launched with the headline, Gillard: The Story She Tried To Kill.

  • Union Corruption
  • Fraudulent Accounts
  • Young and Naive’ Law Partner
  • Media Threats
  • Serious Questions To Answer

Five days later, radio broadcaster, Alan Jones devoted a half hour to the story, on Sydney’s highest rating morning program, reading word-for-word from The Pickering Post. Andrew Bolt is now running regular updates on the scandal on his blog page and has revisited it on Channel 10′s Bolt Report. This past weekend The Weekend Australian splashed as its lead story that bagman Ralph Blewitt has returned from Malaysia to tell all (first revealed in The Pickering Post nearly three weeks ago).

It was Blewitt’s files that Slater and Gordon refused to release to the police for investigation into the house and Gillard’s involvement. Now Blewitt is ready to sing like a canary for police in exchange for indemnity. This is about to explode. Gillard replied by trying to discredit Blewitt. Wayne Swan says there is nothing in it (but how would he know unless he has seen the Blewitt files, which he hasn’t?) and Bill Shorten was quoted as saying, “I know at the time my predecessors certainly did take all the material to West Australian and Victorian police and what I understand is those authorities chose not to take the matter any further, not to prosecute”.

Former AWU National Secretary Bill Shorten knows why the police could not go further. Slater & Gordon claimed ‘client privilege’ on the Blewitt files and would not release them, which will now soon come to light along with other material. Shorten also well knows it was not before his time. According to Kernohan, Shorten who was an AWU organiser at the time of the fraud was one of those who argued to keep a lid on the whole affair. In short, Shorten knows and is involved much more than he is letting on. There’s good reason why Shorten’s temper is inexplicably exploding in an innocuous pie shop as this scandal threatens to engulf this Prime Minister, the ALP, the unions and his own Prime Ministerial ambitions.

There’s more, much more to come on this story.

This will be a gripping TV series some day.

It’s got power, it’s got corruption, it’s got sex, it’s got politics, it involves an Australian Prime Minister – Australia’s first female Prime Minister – it involves media threats, intimidation, journalists losing their job, unionists being bashed and bullets sent in the mail, it’s got fear, intrigue, reprisals, high drama, it has it all.

Better than anything on Underbelly.

.. Read more here …

Well this sent a buzz to all the followers of this story. ‘The Australia’ staff has to have all this same data and much more information from Blewitt.

At the moment Lawyers all over Australia are researching Constitutional Laws to find out how a sitting PM can be removed, and what the repercussions will or might be.

Gillard already knows her fate – the face she now trolls the street with, and in front of the camera as she completes her Prime Ministerial obligations and speaking engagements – is a face that will ‘sink a thousand ships’.

Late last night a third story hit the wires – ‘The Pickering Post‘ was again the source – and it was an expose of yet more evidence and a insultive ‘finger’ being shown to the PM … that story is republished below:

IS THE PRIME MINISTER A CROOK?
| Author: Larry Pickering| 7th Aug 2012 | Link to On-Line Story. |

Julia Gillard’s latest makeover appears insufficient to cover her past.

An embattled Ralph Blewitt’s testimony will be challenged by the might of the PM’s Office but it is all too late. Basic truths are rapidly mushrooming to the surface and Pickering Post’s impeccable sources now appear to know more than even Ralph Blewitt knows.

The Pickering Post will not again ask the Prime Minister for answers. We don’t need to ask now.

We already know the answers and they are not pretty.

WA Premier, Brian Burke, Alan Bond and Laurie Connell all served time. The infamous Wilson/Gillard alliance emerged from the ashes of the WA Inc. scandal.

That Royal Commission did nothing to eradicate the next wave of corrupt union gangsters.

AWU boss, Bruce Morten Wilson was part of that new wave. Julia Eileen Gillard was later to become his pregnant girlfriend and partner in further crime.

Stories abound of a Perth-based Wilson capitalising on the growing WA boom regarding companies other than Thiess Contractors.

Pickering Post has been told, by various sources, of instances of a brash Wilson barging into developers’ boardrooms. The same old union threats to interrupt concrete pours caused ashen-faced board members to reach deep in their pockets.

It appeared extortion monies paid were going to the AWU. They weren’t. Eventually there were, in total, 12 illegal accounts. There was about to become a 13th illegal account and an extortion avalanche.

The story starts in 1992: Thiess Contractors’ WA Manager, Joe Trio was tendering for a lucrative wetlands job south of Perth. Wilson approached his friends in the then Labor Government and promised industrial peace if Thiess won the tender. Joe Trio’s Thiess Contractors won the tender.

There was no industrial unrest for the duration. Wilson now realised his immense political and fiscal power.

Ominously, Joe Trio was married to Bruce Wilson’s sister.

Later, in 1993, sums of money were appearing in a fraudulent account of Wilson’s, the account was disguised as an “AWU Workplace Reform Association” account.

We cannot confirm this, but ex-union sources are emphatic that it was Thiess Manager, Joe Trio, Wilson’s brother-in-law, who told Wilson illicit payments could not be paid directly to him. It was Trio who insisted Wilson set up accounts that would not attract attention.

Enter Julia Gillard, a young and naive, hard Left, lawyer, who naturally gravitated to the notorious Left wing law firm, Slater & Gordon. Peter Gordon of Slater & Gordon appointed Gillard as union envoy to Perth.

He instructed Gillard to hop on a plane and look after the “big boss”, Mr Bruce Wilson. Gillard certainly did that.

That night, at a dinner for union heavies at an exclusive Perth restaurant, Gillard and Wilson were finally left alone. At breakfast the next morning both were celebrating the consummation of what was to become a serious chapter in Australian political history.

Wilson accepted the position of Branch Secretary of the AWU in Melbourne. He resigned from the WA AWU but continued his remuneration from both branches.

Gillard then teamed up with Wilson and agreed to act for him, as Slater & Gordon already acted for the Vic. AWU.

THAT ACCOUNT

Gillard, needing expert help, requested the assistance of another in-house lawyer, Bernard Murphy, to draw up the Association of Objects for the illegal account. They both worked on drafting the document. Gillard authored and signed the document.

Later, as PM, Gillard appointed Bernard Murphy as a Judge of the Federal Court.

Solicitors hold a copy of following chapters of this story:

Following instalments are ongoing and damaging. They include Shorten and Conroy’s role in the scandal. They include the immense and dastardly power of Gillard’s sacred hero, Bill Ludwig… how Gillard honoured his advice to her: “When you have the numbers, you can do what you like.” Why police investigations into Wilson were shelved. I sit at Bob Kernohan’s bedside in an unnamed Melbourne hospital. How the Left downed daggers with the Unity Right long enough to assassinate Rudd and install Gillard. How Blewitt was shafted by Gillard and Wilson. Why he never received one cent of stolen funds.

The payoffs, the bribes the sackings. Who is behind the repatriation of Blewitt and what he will say. Those in the ALP now plotting Gillard’s demise. It is a gripping saga and we have the full story… a story that will cause a Government to fall.

The ‘insultive finger’ gesture is warranted and appropriate.

For more than two years now and in the aftermath from when she ousted Kevin Rudd – she had to have known that her past would catch up with her.

Australia now awaits for the ‘bomb’ to explode and explode it will. It has been a long wait for many attached to this scandal – those who are guilty, those who kept quite about the story despite their knowledge of events, those who all this time have been trying to get the story out there, the media who have cowered, the journalist’s made to fall on their swords, the MP’s that knew and said nothing, The Unions, they are all awaiting their fate …

Australian’s deserve a better form of Government that what we have now, and what we are likely to be served up in the future when this is done and dusted. This scandal will put this Nation on its heels for 10-15 years … International creditability will trash all pipeline investment. Vetting of pre-selection candidates will take on a life of its own.

How did Gillard get to be PM with so many ALP MP’s and party members knowing what she was involved with – and that includes McClelland. He was happy whilst he had the AG role – but now ??? He and others who had knowledge should have been in front of this a long time ago.

There are other rumors and questions being asked -

  • Was Gillard disbarred – or under threat of disbarment if she practised Law again?
  • Did she abort her child or did natural causes intervene – this again goes to the moral integrity of the woman … particularly when she has very little in common with Australian beliefs – i.e. family, religion, marriage etc.
  • The integrity of the AFP – and their role in lending their resources to the PM in what was clearly intimidating ‘blackmail’.
  • Who within the ALP Members, and the Party organisation knew, aided and abetted the cover up?

These are but a few of the searching questions Australia have a right to know.   As an outcome and from what has already been published then the response has to be decisive.   At a minimum the ALP should be deregistered as a Political Party … can anyone see that happening any time soon?

We truly have a fucked political system and again … Australians deserve far better.

EYE-BALL JokeZone – ‘Julia at the Bank’:
Last Updated 4th Aug ’12
SmilingJulia at the Bank:(Submitted by Warwick M.)

Prime Minister Gillard walks into the Commonwealth Bank of Australia to cash a cheque.  As she approaches the cashier she says “Good morning , could you please cash this cheque for me”?

Cashier: “It would be my pleasure Miss. Could you please show me your ID?”

Gillard: “Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn’t think there was any need to.  I am Prime Minister Julia Gillard, the Prime Minister of Australia !!!”

Cashier: “Yes  Miss, I know who you are, but with all the regulations, monitoring, of the banks because of impostors and forgers, etc I must insist on seeing ID.”

Gillard: “Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you.    Everybody knows who I am.”

Cashier: “I am sorry Prime Minister but these are the bank rules and I must follow them.”

Gillard: “I am urging you please to cash this cheque.”

Cashier: “Look Prime Minister this is what we can do: One day Adam Scott came into the bank without ID.   To prove he was Adam Scott he pulled out his putting iron and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup.   With that shot we knew him to be Adam Scott and cashed his cheque.  Another time, Pat Rafter came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot where the tennis ball landed in my cup.   With that spectacular shot we cashed his cheque…  So, Prime Minister, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the Prime Minister of Australia ?”

GILLARD  stood there thinking, and thinking and finally says: “Honestly, there is nothing that comes to my mind.  I can’t think of a single thing I’m good at.”

Cashier: “Will that be large or small notes, Prime Minister?”

| Author: Rookie Bookie |1st Aug 2012 |
Last Weekend Updates:

  • My wager on Capetown Stormers to win Super Rugby is now worthless. Negative 2 units index goes backward 66.67 points.
  • From last weekend on Knights ½ unit collects 1.25,
  • Panthers ½ unit collects 1.50, Titans ½ unit collects 0.825,
  • Freo (AFL) ½ unit collects 0.825 and Eels ½ unit collects 1.875,
  • lost on Western Bulldogs. $6.275 return for 3 outlay.
  • 3.275 win represents positive 109.17 index points.

Overall index is now at 370.8 points net up 42.5 (109.17 – 66.67).

The price on Hawthorn and Sydney in AFL winning the minor premiership is just nonsense. It assumes far too much without reflecting on run home. I simply overlook it, Geelong have grown another leg. Hawks are going well, Pies very shaky. If Hawks do survive this brimstone, they will go into finals near odds on. For Swans it is different, the mindset has it they only win at SCG on smaller ground.

The bet on Australia’s Olympic Gold medal haul looks sick to say the least. Somewhat disappointed in Equestrian. Hoy while having previously won 3 gold (Sydney, Atlanta, Barcelona) and a silver (Beijing), will remain a champion, he is a has been. Time to move over Jim!
