Thank you for that, well worth the time to listen. Surprised?Not at all.
So what did Gillard say to News Ltd that they found so persuasive? "I was young and naive"? Or something more forceful? I can imagine Fairfax going quiet but News Ltd ... that's a surprise.Pedro of Adelaide
Smells worse than a beached whale.
It sounded quite telling that our PM allegedly didn't tell about the WA account that Mr Wilson has her arrange when he was allegedly being investigated and also that she was out of work when her job with J Brumby was arranged by the sisterhood!!Just saying how it sounded!(Welcome back and hope family are all well!)Anyone making a book on how much longer she lasts?
Journos lose jobs but where is the Journo's union.How has the MSM let the red hag get away with it?
Gone, gone, gone, but she still won't go. That was a devastating piece by Jones&Smith, everyone knows about it, nobody's been allowed to say, under pain of career or literal death. Until today.Well done, people. Best piece of outing in decades. So let's see...
This is what blogs are all about. Calling spades.In no newspaper will one read that "someone" is a "lying thieving slut" - here in a blog, one can confront facts of life.I was thinking about Eric Blair while you were gone Prof. Eric died of tuberculosis aged 46. His writing on the life of coal miners was so authentic he died like a miner. Digging for every salable fact. Dying as a digger who wanted to capture the story should. It is the authenticity/ integrity of his writing that leaves him nearly peerless in his generation; or should that be unmatched. Was anyone else that authentic? He lived what he wrote. He caught a bullet in the neck living what he believed. Maybe Theo Van Gough captured a different moment in history with like integrity?It was the reeking legitimacy of Down and Out in Paris and London that impassioned me for Orwell.Prof. Can a nation get rid of a Julia Gillard? Can it really wash the stain. I'm Christian in perhaps a lost sense of the word. It seems like God has put her here to curse this country down to foundation mineraled soil.The British Empire stood for something when it exported civility, build community and missionaries converted cannibals. Its something like forgotten now. The civility bit has gone away.Please write on.
Stick the boot into the lying bogan! Kick the shit out of the bitch. Mongerel lying decietfull slag .
Come on stop holding back , tell us what you really think :-) ...sink the boot in next time please .
Interestingly the funds our Bonny, Clyde and Boris extorted from the companies weren't AWU funds per se, despite the fact the AWU had to reimburse the companies once the scam was discovered. However things get muddy when you realise the reimbursements are AWU members funds, so in a roundabout way, the three did steal from the workers covered by the AWU. If their scam hadn't been discovered, then they might have gotten away with it and most likely congratulated for extorting the money from the nasty capitalists. And of course AWU members funds would not have been involved. No wonder it's an interesting situation - ripping off the enemy but not being able to boast about it.
Correct, but then we get Tony.....At best a socially conservative welfare statist.He will do nothing significant about the tax system, he is a CAGW believer and will spend zillion chasing urban myths because the MSM says he must, he is as much in favour of an ETS as Labor , despite his recent statement, he is terrified of the MSM, any concerted MSM campaign will make him back down on anything at all, he will do nothing about Their ABC, he will do nothing about the massive immigration numbers of failed 3rd world cultures into Australia, carrying their failures inbound for our pleasure.He will stop the boats. Woopee.Tony is a slightly more enervated conservative than Baillieu....slightly.
That's my concern too, Anonymous.We need to buy these LNP leaders, except Newman, some testicles. Can't find any on Gumtree for them.
Ah Skeptic....LibLabers like our Tony and his brains trust believe they are incredibly sophisticated political operators, able to see the nuances and bend to them for political advantage, values be buggered.Whereas we know they are scared little boys.Tony has 4 opposite, MSM panic induced, positions on CAGW up to and including his present belief in CAGW and its "abatement (sic).
I have to agree, as unfortunate as the prospect is, that Tony Abbott will become Prime Minister and be about as useful as an ice cube maker in a desert when it comes to the things that really matter for our nation.If he were to articulate his mind and speak about the goals he aspires to with passion which can be so easily understood by the general public than the strained speech he utters when interviewed, and I realize he only does this so as not to incur an adverse report from a so very obvious to everyone biased media, then he would win many votes on just that alone! To me he is a political coward who is afraid of adverse reports in the media which to him and his party, trumps truthful and honest speaking, of which our age so sorely lacks, and that tells me that he is not a person who allows the courage of his convictions to shine through. I hope I am wrong on this assumption for all our sakes, but I believe he is the type of person who would sooner take the cowards way out by agreeing with the consensus at the time, rather than stand on his own tried and tested principles! In other words, he will not make an outstanding PM which is what this country at this time needs!Do any of you wonder why the coalition did not win outright in 2010 after the nation suffered Rudd's rules for three years which destroyed, almost overnight, any financial credibility this nation had? So why was the coalition not elected outright at that time?A possible clue is that Abbott's interference in undermining the political ambitions of One Nation, and then being indirectly involved in having Pauline Hanson jailed, not to mention his enforced alienation of at least one million voters by the actions he intiated. Those voters, who many years later still cannot trust him, may have something to do with the lack of support for the coalition at that time.If the regular polls are correct and we will have a change of government in the federal parliament in 2013, then we must also take into account the personal polls of Gillard and Abbott. If one reads and understands the concerns of the average voter, then one must also take into account the personal preferences or feelings for our current federal leaders as being of major concern. For example; Gillard's personal polling for Prime Minister is now below that of the Opposition leader, but it is not that far below that if an election was dependant on personal preference for either the Prime Minister or Opposition Leader, that the contest would be a conclusive decision and would instead be very tight contest indeed. Which brings me back to my original complaint, and that is:Tony Abbott is not a popular leader and the only reason he is now above that of a most fraudulent Prime Minister in the polls, is due to his handling of the One Nation issue that he should never have been involved in. All One Nation supporters( and for the public record,I am not one of those supporters) see Abbott's interference and actions as a travesty of the Australian political system and some people have a long memory that will never be erased!
When Tony Abbott's Attorney General starts turning over the rock of union rorts this story will be dealt with as it should have been done in the first place. If Julia Gillard thinks that anyone believes that " I was naive" rubbish, she has told too many lies for that ever to happen.That Fairfax guy who caved in to her threats is a gutless wonder. What could she do? Sue for defamation? Did he think she would let it get that far? And firing Michael Smith only added grist to the mill. Her former Attorney General knows where the bodies are buried and has hinted enough to keep the fire alight under this particular story.
I knew about this story. The finer details given in the interview is shocking. The few people including your good self that are trying to stop this from being swept under the rug are great champions of justice for the little people. Unlike so many unions. I have two good stories myself when it comes to underhanded dealings with two different unions. One from the good old days in the 70's that cost my Father his business when he was blacklisted and one from three years ago with a company I left. I believe they had paid off a union when they were underpaying their staff. I know the union were in talks with the management and to this day staff are still not getting the full pay. I met a person a couple of years ago who works for the Labor party in Victoria and told them about this in a casual conversation and they said it was widely know that the union I mentioned were among the worst offenders when it comes to bribes. So when Labor act all shocked that some union officials are corrupt it kills me knowing that they know full well what goes on. Thank you, so much for posting the link to such an important interview.
As Alan Jones and I have repeatedly said: Time for a Royal Commission into this and other Union corruption and corrupt Politicians.
Someone else is touching it - shaking it!http://pickeringpost.com/news/serious-questions-for-gillardbr-still-no-answers/139
For a woman who has shown absolutely no respect for the sanctity of marriage in her private life it really is odd that she is a staunch backer of traditional marriage.Perhaps deep down she would rather abolish all marriages than extend the concept to homosexuals. She's certainly swung the wrecking ball on a couple.
If what they said about a threat to News Corporation's Australian operations, then she should be in gaol. No government has the right to use its powers as a weapon to suppress free speech and cower news organisations.
The woman is just hanging on by the skin of her teeth kids,I hope she falls sooner rather than later.
Cripes the poor woman can't even oppose gay marriage between two primates and she still gets a slagging off. How do we know that she is opposed to marriage in particular? I suspect that our Julia, like most women would probably like to be married herself, but sadly, nobody asked. Undoubtedly Tim is keeping his options open in case the desire to make a quick getaway becomes overwhelming.
