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.


"I'll be characterised as that scumbag, crook, fraudster, and at the very best, somebody who's been bewitched by an evil harridan, namely Kathy ... that I'm cunt-struck and that I have been utterly taken in by somebody who's a serious crook," Michael Lawler (pictured) told the ABC who, for the first time, did not bleep the “C” bomb.

It was ABC TV at its rarely seen best! They used two flawed characters to piece together a picture of self harm and rampant fraud by union officials who genuinely believe they are entitled to use members’ funds for their own benefit!

Kathy Jackson did a dirty deal with the Peter Maccallum Cancer Institute and that deal defrauded HSU workers of $3.16 million in back pay they still haven’t received.

For those who haven’t followed the Kathy case, here is but one alleged offence in a nutshell:

Kathy Jackson’s HSU East Branch sued the Peter Macallum Institute for workers’ back pay. It was clear that the Institute was at fault so it told Jackson if it was to make up the pay it would need to sack 38 workers.

Jackson then did a private deal whereby if Peter Mac. made good the HSU’s legal costs, she would agree to drop the claim.

No consultation with union members, no vote, just a sum of $250,000 was paid to the HSU, the deal was sealed, the legal action was dropped.

Disregarding Peter Mac’s debt to the workers, Kathy Jackson then simply declared the sum a “windfall amount” and opened a new separate bank account from which Kathy and Michael Lawler’s side benefits, including drugs, flowed like confetti.

It became Kathy’s kitty to play with... and the rest is history. The unpaid union members never saw anything of their entitlements.

Sort of takes your breath away doesn’t it? But Kathy and Michael saw nothing wrong and neither did HSU National Secretary and ALP President Michael Williamson who had already pocketed $20 million of union members’ funds. He was the bloke Kathy whistleblew all the way to a long jail sentence

But a wise Williamson did a plea bargain admitting to stealing only one million dollars to avoid a can of worms being opened during his trial. At least Williamson used his brain and limited his jail sentence to a few years, unlike Jackson and Lawler who seem determined to find themselves guilty on all counts.

Let’s face it, Jackson is a dumb union crook who openly admitted her multiple “charity shags” to a nonplussed TURC Commissioner, Dyson Heydon and the Abbott-appointed Fair Work Commissioner, Lawler is clearly bonkers as a result of a long term cocaine addiction... and that’s been both their problems for a long while.

So now you can begin to understand the bizarre nature of a 4Corners’ program that fell unexpectedly into the ABC’s lap.

It was truly astonishing!


The deal to save workers jobs and to pay for the union’s legal costs was a good one, BUT not to explain that to the members, and then to use the settlement money as your own private slush fund is abominable. Where do these people think they are, Indonesia (the home of corruption)?

One of the great aussie sayings.

The power of the pussy reigns supreme!

Why do I get the impression that the ABC interviewer/s, under the pretence of giving Lawler and Jackson a fair hearing, deliberately set out to show them in as unfavourable light as possible?

This is the Labor way. It is very messy, but we know who wins the $$$. There is no doubt that Lawler has gone stark raving mad. Whether it's Coke or the fact that he has been forever denied the possibility of respectability ... or both. He might suicide.


I rest my case!

Probably about the right age and surely there can't be that many non moslems with that much hatred in their hearts?

Sickie note from Michael Lawler's GP. "The patient is severely c*nt-stricken and unable to carry out his duties for a period on nine months" Signed: Dr Jenny Talia.

Well Dis ...he is most likely related....first cousin I might suggest.

Peter Joseph "Jack" van Tongeren (born 1947) was the leader of the Australian Nationalist Movement (ANM), a white supremacist and extreme right group. He served thirteen years, one month, and six days in prison from 1989 to 2002 for grand theft and arson, after robbing and firebombing businesses owned by Asians in Western Australia. He was tried in absentia.

He is Dessspicccable Duck.....

HH him in one....real hateful prick of a man..

Well JJ. Jewish Jack. Mate if you are going to state facts then you better first know what you are talking about. First and Foremost, the criteria is that all migration agents operating in Australia they must have an English level of IELTS 7 exam. You my friend would have trouble with that....fair dinkum cobber. Secondly, and Education Agent has no rights to give migration law advice...severe penalties arise. Thirdly, Migration Law is a complex system constantly evolving with regulation change on sometimes daily basis. Migration law is hard and that is why so many Asians can perform......unlike you...they are smart and articulate. You give me the sh..s Jack the Jew Asian hater. A hater Jack...a hater.

Jim reckons he is Greek BB. Anyway he is not of Allah, which makes a huge difference.

Hey Jack, Just remember the one you knock back is the one you'll never catch up on. Reckon she'd go off like a free keg at a truckies picnic !!

actually they are destroyed by the RIGHT WING FACTION of the ALP...the greatest character assassinators of those who stand up to them....Heffernan is on the right track.....get after those alleged pedos...filthy dirty rats

Lebanon First would be a more appropriate name for any organisation led by Jim Saleam.

Doesn't it make you feel all warm and fuzzy when you see 2 sociopaths who have found happiness in each other.

Jack Van Tongeran was Dutch/Indonesian too.
