Gillard's & Wilson's Slush Fund - the Evidence

Bolta is sharing this, so I will too:

"Michael Smith, the 2UE broadcaster who lost his job after asking the Prime Minister too many questions about the AWU scandal, has promised to put up all the relevant documents so readers can make up their own minds."

Pot, Meet Kettle

Heard Ms Gillard's rant yesterday about the evil sexists who are persecuting her? Got a few moments to spare? You might enjoy: 

·        Reading the transcript of Gillard’s Slater & Gordon interrogation and discovering just what she thinks of certain ethnic minorities in this country;
·        Saying the words ‘Julie Bishop’ to yourself and thinking of what kind of media and satirical coverage she’s endured for years;
·        A reminder from May 2012 of what the ABC’s best and brightest think of successful women entrepreneurs in ths country;
·        Googling the terms ‘leftism misogyny’ and being pleasantly surprised by the huge number of results;
·        Something from Bolta in 2010 on the vile misogyny of the local Left.

Why Is This Man Smiling?


Because he knows he's going to get away with it.

Because he knows his erstwhile boss is in similar trouble, and that she's going to get away with it too.

Because he knows he's never, ever going to see the inside of a courtroom, let alone a prison.

Because he knows his erstwhile boss is also immune from prosecution.

Because he knows that if he goes down, a whole lot of other people will also have to go down.

Because he knows those people are never, ever going to go down.

Why is this man smiling?

Because we let him get away with it.

That Pickering Blog

Larry Pickering has been getting a fair bit of media attention over his blog accounts of the AWU scandal. At the present time we still enjoy a modicum of free speech in this country, but this may change at any moment, so you'd better catch them while you can.

Project WA

Today Ron Manners and IPA launched Project Western Australia, their radical economic blueprint for the future development of this resource-rich State.  This report will be distributed to all Western Australian State and Federal Members of Parliament.

What might a future WA look like with:

·        A deregulated and privatised water system?
·        Electricity reform?
·        Better protection of property rights?
·        Full privatisation of public transport?
·        More relaxed liquor licensing?

NDIS: Coulda, woulda, shoulda?

I am watching with interest as the new National Disability Insurance Scheme promises to install yet another layer of cumbersome bureaucracy at both State and Federal level. This should make it even harder for people with lifetime disabilities to access a suddenly- and mysteriously-shrunken pot of funding.

Baby, He Was Born To Run

Now it’s just getting plain weird. In the wake of Bob Hawke’s serenade of the ACTU Congress and Craig Emerson’s unprecedented public Skyhooks eruption, tonight a roomful of painfully embarrassed people will witness Australia’s clown prince of economics and unreconstructed distributivist Wayne Swan engage in death-defying feats of Dad-trying-to-be-cool ...
