Misuses of Union Funds and Misuses of Power

Bruce Wilson with Young and Naive Ms Gillard
Previously this blog has written about Julia Gillard, Bruce Wilson and AWU Funds ( eg here, here, here,) and especially about ex broadcaster, ex policeman Michael Smith's forensic examination of the events.

He recently was interviewed by Alan Jones and a transcipt of that interview has been published in Quadrant on Line under the heading:


Alan Jones interviews Michael Smith

Jones: Cambridge has been calling on the one hand for a Royal Commission but then is appointed (to FWA). He was the author of the affidavit when McClelland was the solicitor. Cambridge is now in the union controlled Fair Work Australia, which has delayed the investigation into Thomson and, as I understand it, he has not pursued the Wilson-Gillard matter since.

Smith: That is true. He swore an affidavit with penalty of perjury if falsely sworn. You read it; read what he said about Slater & Gordon, and its role and Ms Gillard was a partner who was involved in this position where she had a conflict of interest having a sexual relationship with the man who headed up her client, the AWU, that was undisclosed to her partners. The Law Council would have a view about the appropriateness of that.

Jones: Did she, as a lawyer, set up accounts into which extorted funds were diverted? This union heavy was going around saying: I want this money, 25 thousand from you and 30 thousand from you in order to get work done. This was 20 years ago, and that money was shoved into another account the AWU would not know about. Did she set up those accounts?

Smith: I know that her handwriting is present. I have had that analysed by the country’s pre-eminent forensic handwriting analyst, Paul Westwood. He is the same guy who helped me out on the Craig Thomson matter, who analysed the hand-writing on the credit card chits, the signature.
I am a layman. I can look at her handwriting, I have a copy here and the handwriting on that form. It is identical. But the forensic analyst tells me it is in all likelihood, balance of probabilities, written by the same person, by her.

Shame on the toadies of the Main Stream Media, the apologists for the Green Gillard Government who, by failing in their duty to report, have helped sweep this dirty business under the carpet.
