THE PARTY'S OVER... it’s time to call it a day

Bill opened one eye, he looked out the window, there was a faint pinkish tinge in the sky to the east. He pulled the towel around himself and struggled to his feet wrenching the drapes closed but the entire valance fell to the floor.


JULIA GILLARD TELLS ANOTHER LIE

So both Evans and Roxon informed Gillard of their decisions to quit 12 months ago? Really, is that what she said?


"I DID NOTHING WRONG!"

It's a common cry in Labor circles lately, and it's probably true... under union law, that is.

VIC POLICE CLOSE IN ON GILLARD

Information out of Melbourne is that more than a dozen detectives on an unlimited budget are on the brink of laying charges in the AWU Wilson/Gillard fraud case.
