"I THINK YOU MIGHT BE STUFFED BILL"
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.
A large "donation" to Bill Shorten's 2007 campaign that was only declared over the weekend sent the Left media racing to their laptops to Google Tony Abbott's comparative sins. Voila! He also had been late in declaring "donations".
A unified cacophony of comparison to Tony Abbott omitted to include one small fact... Tony Abbott was not negotiating an EBA on behalf union members at the time. And that's where the Left's case collapses.
At best a serious conflict of interest. At worst, "slip me a few quid and I'll back off on a few of my members' claims".
Well, if you reckon companies don't expect a quid pro quo for every quid "donated" then you simply don't know how companies are forced to interact with unions.
The Libs also receive large "donations" and favours are also expected. But the Libs don't trade off workers' benefits in return for these large personal "donations".
The other thing that surprised even the Lefties was that the "no disadvantage" test for EBAs was based solely on the affidavits of union bosses. Bloody hell!
Plenty more to see here as the Commission continues to surgically perform an autopsy on a stiff Shorten corpse.
