Talk us through this one
Am I missing something here?
You have former Health Services Union National Secretary, MP Craig Thomson, under investigation for using his HSU credit card to withdraw hundreds of thousands of dollars and pay for prositutes.
You have union-stacked government workplace relations body Fair Work Australia taking over three years to investigate him for that, and yet after three years they’ve essentially come up with nothing (despite the signature on the receipt looking like his), and have refused to cooperate with police both in NSW and Victoria.
You have HSU president Michael Williamson accused of embezzling members’ money, and yet, he’s the only one on the chopping block.
You, in fact, have a very tangled web (<<< that’s the Glenn Milne column he was forced to pull) indeed, with ALP/Union faction fights, Bruce Wilson (Gillard’s ex), Willamson’s daughter working as an adviser to Gillard, 2UE’s Michael Smith getting the sack… all very messy.
A whole heap of punishments could and arguably should be metred out (whilst some already have been that perhaps shouldn’t have been).
Yet who’s the one really copping it?
The only one here (even her husband might be a bit dodgy) who demonstrates any integrity, and the powers-that-be want her removed.
Looks like there could be plenty of fodder here.
