If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.



Exactly twelve days before Gillard became aware she was going to lose Office she called her old University of Adelaide and donated it $100 million in borrowed taxpayer funds. No sooner had she lost Office she was appointed a Visiting Professorship by the same university. It’s reported she hasn’t “visited” since.

In her first year out of Office, Gillard had racked up an income of more than $700,000. She is entitled to 75% of her salary which amounts to $375,000 p.a. for life, is entitled to a free office and staff, car travel, fixtures, phone and internet bills, stationery and myriad publications.

Gillard and part-time de-facto, Tim Mathieson, can enjoy 40 return business-class domestic airfares a year which are invariably up-graded to first-class, but poor Timmy is only allowed 10 freebies p.a. if he travels alone.

So girls, why bother with a law degree, just hook up with a top union gangster and become his complicit moll, get gifted a seat in Parliament by the Socialist Left, knife the sitting Prime Minister and you’ll be set for life.


Sydney's sister city of San Fran... or is it brother city?




Gillard will never be charged or convicted. She knows too much and those who sit in judgement or have material evidence will have too much to hide.

Typical Leftie, can't spell, can't construct a sentence, yet wants to run the country!

Look at the smug look on the bitches face. Makes you want to slap her....hard.

I think you have been bitch slapped Greipr.

F F S. How does this happen in Australia?

Lordy, lordy, lordy, leave the "real phantom" oput of this will ya?

@Wiseone - Still doesn't explain why Smith has failed to disclose a few things about his personal involvement with Jackson. End of the day, I couldn't care less what his personal reasons are for living on her property (nor do I want to hear them - I can draw my own conclusions about the notable absence of 'the Czek. Princess'), but as someone presenting himself as a person of honour and integrity (and not adverse to putting the hat out to collect 'donations' on that premise), he should at least disclose when there is more than 'personal friendship' affecting his viewpoint. End of the day, you can believe that Smith is as pure as the driven snow, but when it comes to corruption and the ladies of the HSU, they're just as effective at tainting 'principled' journalists as the old KGB honey-traps were with statesmen.

@Rubyred - When Larry raised Bob's concerns about this earlier this year, Smith chose to fob it off, rather than come clean. Since then, it seems he's been left out of the loop on a lot of things... Seems a lot of the old names have dropped off Smith's site and all he's been doing lately is bulk cut'n'pastes from the Commision.

Here's Larry's article from July -

Someone's telling porkies....

It really makes me sick that Tim Mathieson is still sponging off the public teet.. he should've been a blowjob!

Well, the Welsh Commie slut is certainly living the bourgeois lifestyle she so envied growing up...

"praying"? Like that mozzie was praying one of Abbott's daughters would be killed? Odd thinking there. Normal people don't pray for bad stuff.

Read any good Phantom Comics lately Greipr?

The word is "were" not "where" and the "mother is a Muslim" not "was Muslim". You should have stayed at school beyond grade 5, or couldn't you wait to get on the dole?, idiot.

If she were not a Labor politician she would have been serving about 5-10 years in jail.

leftist troll .

None, you fuckwit!

A good post but things are really no different on the other side of the political spectrum.
It's the old adage . . Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely!
It has always been the same. Anyone remember the Qld corruption under both houses? Former Lib PM's and Ministers are just as ready to rort the perks etc.

The 'system' is never going to allow a situation that can result in a PM or former PM bringing the office of Prime Minister into disrepute, no matter what that person has done in the past. That was made evident by the light treatment and minimal questioning at the Royal Commission hearings of Gillard.

Yep and portrayed as a role model for all young women….may her chickens turn to emus and kick her funny down…low life that she is….pox on her and all who support her….

some of the ringleaders involved in installing Gillard....Paul Howes, Bill Ludwig, Mark Arbib and Dastyari.... A who's who of union thugs and grubs.... Howes a high school dropout, went to Cuba seeking the workers paradise... Ludwig a former shearer, had a role in the Qld vote rigging scandal (Shephardson inquiry)... these are the types that overturn a democratically elected PM. MAKE THEM MORE ACCOUNTABLE AND KEEP THE ISSUE ALIVE...

how about expanding this topic and include the grubs who put her into the top job...
