So much for GillardGate being a vast right wing conspiracy
Andrew Bolt sets the record straight as to where the information on the AWU/Slater&Gordon scandal is coming from… and it ain’t from the Right.
There is a determined campaign by Labor and its media allies to portray the scrutiny on this scandal and on Gillard as a Liberal plot, a Murdoch press gotcha, or the malevolent muck-rucking of disreputable “shock-jocks” and cartoonists.In fact, the scandal was recently raised in Parliament by former Labor Attorney-General Robert McClelland. It is being researched by a former Socialist Left unionist turned lawyer Harry Nowicki. It has been given fresh momentum [by] a former Slater & Gordon partner Nick Styant-Browne, It has been kept alive by allegations by former AWU officials Ralph Blewett and Bob Kernohan. The most devastating indictment was an affidavit by then AWU national secretary Ian Cambridge, now a Gillard-appointed judge of Fair Work Australia. The man who gave me the most damaging insight into the affair was another senior AWU official. The story has recently been pursued by Fairfax’s Financial Review.
That’s right. The actual content, the info, the facts, the guts of this scandal is coming from… the Left! Leftists who are are also fed up with this travesty.
Because as much as some of the Gillard Luvvies in the media and elsewhere would like to dismiss this for their team, this isn’t actually a left/right issue.
It’s a criminal issue, a trust issue, a judgement issue, an integrity issue.
So enough of this shooting the messenger BS.
