HOW DO YOU NAIL CLYDE WITHOUT NAILING BONNIE?
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.
The Royal Commission into Unions has advised in an interim report that many union officials should be charged over accusations regarding the misuse and/or theft of union members’ funds.
They include Kathy Jackson, Bruce Wilson and Ralph Blewitt but the Commission stopped short of including Julia Gillard, saying her conduct as a lawyer was "questionable" and that “evidence supports a finding that she received money from her allegedly corrupt former boyfriend Bruce Wilson”.
Counsel Assisting, Jeremy Stoljar, raised many eyebrows after he went noticeably easy on Gillard, preferring to allow her to cement herself in her own evidence... undoubtedly to be used at a later date.
Only the Left media believes in Gillard's innocence.
There is no doubt that the fraud could not have been arranged without Gillard’s personal assistance and that she benefitted monetarily. The Commission knows that, and so too does the Victoria Major Fraud Squad who have spent two years on the case.
But mainstream media has completely missed how this is playing out and how Julia Gillard is far from home free.
Bruce Wilson has given notice he will not dump on his former lover, but Ralph Blewitt, Bob Kernohan and others are determined to see her behind bars. That’s unlikely to happen, but the real Julia Gillard will be laid bare, the gangster’s moll will die with a deserved reputation as Australia’s first and only criminal PM, apart from Paul Keating that is.
Okay, this is the evolving end-game: Vicpol was reluctant to give Blewitt immunity from prosecution if he agreed to testify, but he took the risk and now he says he intends pleading not guilty in order to take the stand and pour a pile of excrement on both Gillard and Wilson.
Getting Blewitt on the stand in a court forum will open a Pandora’s box whereby Gillard will have to be subpoenaed to either support or refute the evidence of either Wilson or Blewitt.
Prosecutors will then have her dubious testimony to the Commission in their hot little hands for comparison.
Add to that the evidence of Kernohan, Nick Styant-Browne, Ian Cambridge, Rob McClelland, Olive Brosnahan and a host of others including Wayne Hem who has testified to having first-hand knowledge of payments being made to Gillard, then an unforecast shit storm erupts over Gillard herself.
Any evidence given against Bruce Wilson will necessarily embroil Gillard. She will be caught in her own web of deceit.
Vicpol now holds not only its own evidence but that deduced from the Commission.
It will be impossible to nail Wilson without also nailing Gillard at the same time. They were partners in the fraud, so why on earth would Stoljar have given notice to either of what’s in store via a Commission hearing when Vicpol is set to be the real prosecutor.
Better stay tuned while Gillard remains wrapped in a false sense of security.
