Two companies, subsidiaries of the Reserve Bank of Australia, “Securency” and “Note Printing Australia”, have been paying millions in bribes to Vietnamese crook, Colonel Anh Ngoc Luong. The Colonel is a well known bagman for top Vietnamese Government officials.
Former Federal President of the ALP, Michael Williamson, will no doubt become a guest of her majesty in due course. The trouble is that “due course” will take years and buckets more full of stolen HSU members’ funds. Union members’ $20 million in hard sweat is lost forever with the assistance of Craig Thomson.
Tomasso had picked his two older girls up from the airport and all was well. They were tired but settled and appeared to be looking forward to getting home from the long flight and reuniting with their two younger sisters.
It’s hard to blame McTernan when he has an open record of sexually defaming innocent politicians. His MO holds no secrets as to what he does and to whom he does it. The ALP knew very well what his disgusting methods are. And Gillard co-opted him for one reason only: To falsely defame a formidable opponent, Abbott.
Channel Nine News should be ashamed of itself, hanging around the villa of the four Italian girls like a pack of vultures, inciting high drama and hysterical performances. By the reporter's own admission, the girls reacted to the cameras. Channel Nine, please leave them alone. It's time to give the girls and the family some space.
The stupid orchestrated ALP claim that Abbott has a problem with women is emblematic of a desperate attempt to soil a cleanskin.
Section 574 of the Italian Criminal Code “Illegal Retention of Children” was flagrantly abused by Australian Embassy Officials in Italy.
Workplace relations frontbencher Bill Shorten continues to exercise a roaming appendage. This time it’s his finger and it involves the Australian Education Union.
Obama failed on one major issue Americans will not ignore. He failed to sustain eye contact with Romney. Whenever he was confronted he looked down and did not hold his gaze.
Tragic plane crashes because of cloud (which apparently this one was) can be avoided in non-IFR aircraft. When unexpectedly engulfed in cloud: First do not descend. Do a 180 degree turn. If the cloud has closed in behind you climb to 10,000ft. You cannot hit anything there and you can still breathe. Then ask Brisbane approach for a vector into Maroochydore or Brisbane airport. It seems operations were normal at the time the aircraft encountered cloud so fuel endurance should have been enough for even an alternate. We will never know but a crash is nearly always due to pilot error. Strange for a pilot of his experience.
The stood aside Health Services Union boss, Michael Williamson has been arrested. He allegedly attempted to hinder police in their investigations into fraud within the HSU.
The girls’ mother stood by and watched her children be dragged, crying, to a waiting plane. She had told her children she would not be going back with them so the children would tell the court they wanted to stay. The trauma for girls was a small matter for the mother in her final attempt to muster media support. When the girls were on the plane she told a reporter that she would return “tomorrow”. She was always going to return. She has custody awarded to her by an Italian court. There seems there is no depth of indecency this woman will not stoop to.
AN Australian filmmaker has refused to sell footage of a firestorm to former US vice-president Al Gore - to use in Mr Gore's climate presentations - because the event was unrelated to climate change.
A simple question to a child that simple magistrates have never grasped. Invariably, the child’s answer to this question without hesitation will be, “BOTH”... and that should be the basis of all judgment.
Not sure what radio station it was now but I did say about four months back that there was only one way this disaster could end: “These poor girls must return to Italy.”
