All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

$5000 payment to PM Gillard

Although Ms Gillard, in her recorded exit interview with (from?) Slater and Gordon, admitted that she had set up a "slush" fund for her then boyfriend Bruce Wilson, she has at all times strenuously insisted that she did not do anything wrong.

However, the Australian records another event in this seemingly tawdry affair.  Under the Heading

Whistleblower Wayne Hem alerted AWU's national secretary to $5000 payment to Julia Gillard by: Hedley Thomas and Pia Akerman 

A UNION employee who was concerned about wrongdoing told the national head of the Australian Workers Union in June 1996 that he deposited about $5000 cash into Julia Gillard's bank account at the request of her then boyfriend Bruce Wilson.

The disclosure by Wayne Hem forms part of a contemporaneous and confidential 150-plus-page diary that was kept by the then AWU joint national secretary, Ian Cambridge, now a Fair Work Australia commissioner.
The 1994-96 diary, which recounts hitherto unknown numerous events and conversations during the AWU fraud scandal, has been obtained and its authenticity verified by The Australian.
In a statutory declaration signed in Melbourne on Sunday and in lengthy interviews with The Australian over the past fortnight, Mr Hem declared he had deposited the money after being given the account details of Ms Gillard along with a wad of $100 and $50 notes by Mr Wilson, an official in the AWU's Victorian branch.
