WHY THE COMMISH WILL STAY PUT
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.
Commissioner Heydon would not have spent more than a week preparing legal argument if he intended standing down. No, if he intended to depart there would be no legal argument required, he would just shoot through to a well-earned break in autumnal Tuscany or maybe Province.
The vicious and personal attacks on a Royal Commission by those trapped within its terms of reference, are unprecedented and amount to criminal offences committed under Section 60 of the Royal Commissions Act. But Labor and its unions are accustomed to being on the wrong side of the law.
The CFMEU (phoenixed from the outlawed BLF) and Shorten’s criminal AWU have been ruthlessly ripping off their members, extorting employers and using Parliament like a Mafia picnic handing out safe seats as prizes for underbosses’ egg and spoon races.
ALP Crime Boss, Queensland’s Big Bill Ludwig, replaced Bruce Wilson as “the unions' PM elect” with Bill Shorten after Bruce and his girlfriend, Julia Gillard, were discovered with their fingers in the union till... scamming the scamsters is frowned upon in union circles.
So it’s my guess Dyson Heydon will come out swinging tomorrow with an armful of British case law and a renewed determination to rid Australia of union crims who cripple our economy and rip off lowly paid workers.
Dyson Heydon is not a “walk away from trouble” type of bloke and I’ve noted his controlled anger at what he has heard in evidence and his willingness to arrest those who had not turned up to be examined.
It would be an impossibility to hand over to another Commissioner. Only Dyson Heydon has heard and assessed the evidence so far. Only he has observed the body language and only he has written a thousand illegible notes.
No-one other than he can deliver the final report on union corruption and I believe he understands that.
The claim by the Left that the Commission will in future be seen as biased unless he stands down is a nonsense... bias will be seen to have been proved more so if he goes!
So Labor and its unions will claim bias regardless of what Dyson Heydon decides to do.
By this time next week the ALP’s bleating over bias will be falling on deaf ears and Commissioner Heydon will be getting on with the massive job he was tasked with.
... leaving Shorten and the media to search for another way to discredit and silence the messenger.
