No-one should care what the private life of Julia Gillard subsumes. It is none of our business who she beds or what her sexual preferences are. But it IS our business how she represents us internationally.
“Don’t hold your breath”, was my immediate response on the day of Gillard’s kneejerk response to child abuse. Gillard phoned Cardinal Pell before announcing a Royal Commission, not Sheik Saleem. How portentous.

I will vet, (in case there are some nutters out there) and then forward on to Bob. It will make his years of anguish into one Xmas of utter delight. I know it will.
When the curtain comes down on Julia Gillard and the dust has settled. When the books have been written and mini series shown, one man will be left standing. Only one man will be able to hold his head high and look you in the eye.
A senior Labor Party informant has disclosed to Pickering Post yet more sordid details of the Wilson/Gillard scandal. It just gets worse as the corruption puzzle takes shape and the plaintive cries of, “I did nothing wrong” become a meaningless, distant echo.
There is much gnashing of teeth in New England and the North Coast. Both men, when you scratch the surface, are Labor men but the deal they did with Gillard was against the tide of their electorates’ wishes.
Diary of AWU National Secretary Ian Cambridge who has been silenced by Gillard promoting him to Commissioner of Fair Work Australia. He now says it is inappropriate for him to comment. His original Affidavit is a damning indictment of Gillard.
Ralph Blewitt has replied this morning to an article on Pickering Post which was repeated on facebook. He has said he will return to Australia to face the music and tell what must be told.
Ralph Blewitt has the final pieces of information that should put Gillard away... at least away from the Office of Prime Minister. He has requested an indemnity from prosecution so that he can dump the whole sorry mess in the media’s lap. Even then there will be members of the media, like the ABC, who will happily stay in denial. Police cannot give Blewitt indemnity without knowing what they are giving him indemnity from. Who knows, his admissions may include flying a plane into the World Trade Centre. Blewitt’s dilemma is that any admission to the police may not earn him indemnity, in which case he will have handed the police a comprehensive confession.They may then have the evidence to put him away and not Gillard. Nevertheless he will need to make a statement before the entirety of what he needs to expose is leaked to the media by others. Then he will be left without a card to do a deal with.
Life is one big gamble, Ralph.
Don’t expect too much. Child abuse is endemic and can’t be confined to paedophilia. Abuse is entrenched in Aboriginal, Islamic, Indian, theological, social, sporting, scouting, educative, health, pornographic and politically sensitive groups. Not to mention on-line cultivation of minors.
The timbre of a priest’s earnest voice echoes from leadlight windows and bluestone walls. Resonating organ flutes reach skyward, vibrating the bones of mere mortals. The purity of boy soprano voices frames sombre rituals.
