"I WANT CERTAINTY";... certainty for Gillard that is

And if just once you could believe what Gillard says, again this isn't the time. There were three reasons why Gillard locked herself into September 14, and let's remember she has locked herself into many things before including a surplus.


JULIA CAUGHT IN HER OWN PC NET

Let's chuck PC out the window here and call a spade a spade... Tim Mathieson is a bloody yobbo and he has been banned from microphones for good reason. But what the hell did he say wrong? Nothing that wouldn't be said to a bunch of sports blokes in normal jocular banter.



IF LIFE IS NOT IMPORTANT, WHAT IS?

Tony Abbott is off and running and there is no doubt McTernan will arrange to have Catholic Tony attacked this year on the difficult and divisive subject of abortion.


A MEDIA MALAISE

Fairfax aspired to objectivity when I worked there... well, sort of, but now it is badly listing to the Left and taking on serious water.


[This article below was on my desk at 5am today... it is fascinating to read how the SMH treated the AWU story way back then. I was taken with the prescient nature of the last paragraph.]



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.


PERIS DRAFT REFLECTS A HATRED FOR ABBOTT

The reason for Gillard's bastardry wasn't that sitting ALP Senate Member Crossin was a Rudd supporter, there are many Rudd supporters on her front bench.



A DEMOCRATIC VOTE OF ONE

Julia Gillard is showing her totalitarian slip. And it's not pretty.


HOW RICHO & RIVKIN WERE SPRUNG

ASIC knew the proceeds from the Alpine Offset insurance scam were in Swiss Bank accounts but they couldn't prove it. Numbered accounts were impenetrable to access. Graham Richardson, Rene Rivkin and, Trevor Kennedy were safe. Until an incredible train of events occurred and, as usual, Rivkin had handled it woefully.


RENE RIVKIN & RICHO... the stuff they didn't tell you

Is it hard for a person to eyeball a TV camera and lie? Not for Graham Richardson it's not. "I happen to know", he bawled when assuring Sky viewers that Julia Gillard had no foreknowledge of Rudd's assassination... and he didn't even blink.


RICHO'S PRETENCE AT IMPARTIALITY

While the graphic photo of the bruised and bloodied face of left-wing Labor MP Peter Baldwin has remained etched in the public conscience since his bashing 25 years ago, those responsible have never been brought to account.


JULIA, LANCE... ON YOUR BIKES!

It was difficult listening to Paul Murray interview the Prime Minister this morning. Murray makes no secret of his support for Gillard, as do most in the Fairfax stable, but it appeared akin to interviewing his mother with carefully screened callers causing no embarrassment to either of them.



TRUTH CLOSES IN ON PM

Caucus members are reaching for the Mylanta as the AWU fraud scandal is set to derail McTernan's dirty plans for Gillard's re-election.


THE POLLS ARE POLES APART

There's no need to worry, relax and enjoy the ride.
