WHY ARMSTRONG WAS NEVER NAILED

The 4 Corners drugs expose on seven-time winner of the Tour de France, Lance Armstrong, was tantalisingly incomplete.



THOMSON NOT THE END OF LABOR

Bill Shorten decided, via legislation, to make it harder for union crooks to escape scot free with millions in members’ funds. The Opposition wanted penalties of hundreds of thousands of dollars imposed but ex-AWU National Secretary, Shorten, wanted a mere $6,600.


POLITICS OF DIVISION IS UNAUSTRALIAN

Gillard lurches daily between crises that would have seen off a male PM 18 months ago but Aussies are a sympathetic lot, particularly when it comes to women.


SLATER & GORDON MOBSTERS IN PIN STRIPED SUITS

Slater & Gordon is coupled in the death throes of the Gillard Government. Make no mistake, this dodgy Labor law firm will do anything to protect Gillard. It will go even further to protect itself and its ill-gotten millions.

Peter Gordon (ex-partner of both Slater & Gordon and Julia Gillard) was frantically drafting a whitewash of Gillard’s conduct. 

At the same time another lawyer, his one-time friend and colleague Nick Styant-Browne, was suggesting that Lawyers shouldn’t tell lies. 

Gordon apparently forgot that Styant-Browne had contrary evidence in his file and he was prepared to swap Gordon’s friendship for principle. (read more)


 



CAUCUS MUST GRASP THE NETTLE

While Roxon and Shorten desperately attempt to shove the toothpaste back in the tube, Caucus grapples with the prospect of Gillard dragging them to oblivion.


OUR PRIME MINISTER IS A CROOK Part IX ...and now it's time to go

The Opposition is finally asking questions of Gillard in Parliament regarding Slater & Gordon and Wilson.


A PENIS ENVIOUS PM?

Gillard referred to married women as “prostitutes”. Just wondering what category that statement comes under.

Misandry, misogyny or misanthropy?


CAUCUS RUDD-RATS STILL ACTIVE

Members of Caucus want the Wilson/Gillard scandal enlivened in a clear attempt to undermine Gillard.


FAIRFAX REVIVES THE GILLARD/WILSON SCANDAL... but why?

It’s a very odd development. The Age today had tucked away on Page one, a story on the Gillard/Wilson scandal. This is ominous in more ways than one.


SLIPPER HAD NO INTENTION TO RESIGN

The Press gallery again completely missed the main game. Slipper certainly did not do the right thing. He was forced into resigning via a deal with Windsor and Oakeshott.


GILLARD LOSES GAME, SET AND...

Ever the grandstander, Slipper underscored the obvious and resigned. Except it wasn’t obvious to Gillard as she desperately distracted from Abbott’s motion by turning her empty guns on his “misogyny” once again.



WHAT PRICE JENNA PRICE?

Thought I’d snap a cold beer last night and listen to Chris Smith interview Jenna Price on 2GB. It was one of the strangest interviews I have ever heard.



WHY DID GILLARD REFUSE INQUIRY INTO RBA BRIBES?

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.


HSU BOSS TO SING A DIRGE TO LABOR

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.


CHANNEL NINE CAUSES FAMILY TURMOIL

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.
