Former radio host Mike Smith has tracked down Bruce Wilson who was the sexual partner of Julia Gillard when she helped him rip of the AWU of over $1 million back in the 1990′s.
On Friday Mike Smith did an interview with Sydney radio host Alan Jones covering the fraud. What became clear to me while listening to the interview, given the amount of new detail, is that Mike Smith is still on the trail of the missing money and Julia Gillard and her involvement. I spoke to Mike Smith today and he confirmed that he is very much still on the case.
Bruce Wilson is the one person who very much holds the key as far as knowledge and evidence of Julia Gillard’s involvement in the fraud in concerned. Now he has been found it may only be a matter of time before he spills the beans on Julia Gillard. Mike Smith talks about it in his interview with Alan Jones.
There’s a lot more here
Julia’s excuse is that it’s because she was “young and naive” and there’s more about that here
“These matters happened between 12 and 15 years ago,” Ms Gillard told the Sunday Herald Sun yesterday. “I was young and naive. I was in a relationship which I ended and obviously it was all very distressing. “I am by no means the first person to find out that someone close turns out to be different to what you had believed them to be. It’s an ordinary human error. “I was obviously hurt when I was later falsely accused publicly of wrongdoing. I didn’t do anything wrong and to have false allegations in the media was distressing….”
A lawyer in her early 30s with the Melbourne Labor firm, Slater & Gordon at the time of the fraud, Ms Gillard acted for the AWU. She met Wilson, who was then the West Australian AWU secretary, while representing the union in the Industrial Relations Commission. Wilson later moved to Melbourne, to become Victorian secretary… Now hundreds of pages of new documents have been leaked, detailing the extent of Wilson’s fraud. The con, used by Wilson to cream off possibly more than a million dollars of union funds, was simple and backed by standover tactics
Pickering gives the affair some air…
A cold shiver went up Gillard’s spine when she saw a recent cartoon depicting her as being pregnant to AWU fraudster, Bruce Wilson.
An Australian Prime Minister hasn’t looked as bad as this since Gough Whitlam.
And history repeats…
Here’s a taste of history repeating with Whitlam’s legacy…
There has been a regrettable tendency for Labor enthusiasts not to acknowledge the great defects of his government or his own even greater personal defects. An independent observer could hardly deny that Mr. Whitlam is not a psychologically
balanced person and that his profound psychological defects made him singularly unfitted for any leadership role, or, indeed, for any responsible role. His manic behaviour upon the steps of Parliament House when he was dismissed in 1975 and on subsequent occasions ought to be accepted by all as a conclusive indication of his defects.4 The Labor Party has always engaged in the mythologising of key leaders and in a search for authentic heroes.
