Because the longer she stalls in relation to her involvement in the ever-growing AWU/Slater&Gordon scandal, the grubbier and even more untrustworthy she looks to an electorate already betrayed by her introduction of the carbon tax she promised wouldn’t be imposed.
Her excuse of being “young and naive”, barely believable when first uttered, is now completely unreliable.
Come clean, Julia Gillard.
Via Andrew Bolt, we see more evidence today of a PM desperate to cover her tracks. Even though she was a Partner (didn’t know a big-shot law firm would have the “young and naive” as Partners), she left Slater&Gordon very abruptly after her professional, romantic, and indeed questionable relationship with corrupt AWU official Bruce Wilson – the bloke who syphoned off $400,000 of union members’ funds with Gillard’s help – came to light.
There’s a six month gap from when she left to when she started working for the Victorian ALP that has been airbrushed out of the parliamentary records.
Why would someone do that, especially someone “young and naive”?
It’s high time our PM begin treating the electorate with a bit more respect. It comes down to trust and credibility, and right now, it just feels like we have a lying thief running the show.
Also, via the link, finally the Canberra press pack is starting to ask the appropriate questions, however tentatively.
Larry Pickering has put up his fourth instalment of, “Is the Prime Minister a Crook?”
In it, we take a look at Bill Shorten as AWU National Secretary shutting down police investigations by not releasing files.
We look at Gillard’s co-Partner and co-conspirator, Bernard Murphy, now a Gillard-appointed Federal Court judge.
Bill Ludwig is apoplectic.
And Larry challenges current AWU National Secretary, Paul Howes, on his claims of “zero tolerance” towards union corruption.
Hand over the files. Your “zero tolerance” will assist in recovering your members’ stolen funds… but it will destroy your friends and devastate your union. Your call, Piggy.
More to come.
