Ms Gillard - Have you answered these matters?

Michael Smith

On  Mon 20th of August, Michael Smith gave an address to a packed Wesley Conference Centre in the heart of Sydney.

Michael was previously a broadcaster with the Fairfax owned Radio 2UE.

Although this story has cost him his job, has cost Glen Milne  a regular spot on ABC TV (and one of his stories pulled from publication), and for a while gagged the Andrew Bolt blog, it has not been reported by the main-stream media until recently.

With his parting  “agreement” Smith has been gagged from saying anything about Fairfax. 

However, Fairfax are hitting back with some nasty stuff about cartoonist and blogger Larry Pickering (Link) Pickering's response is HERE.

Are there any points that must be addressed by our Prime Minister? On Sky News, our Prime Minister in reply to Paul Kelly, said:
What Slater & Gordon says is a matter for Slater & Gordon but Paul, my essential point here is, there’s a delving into matters 17 years ago – for what purpose?
If you’ve got an allegation I did something wrong, put it. (Link to PM's web site)
Here are a few matters that need addressing:
  • Setting up a bogus sham organization "AWU Workplace Reform Association;"
  • No minutes of AWU meeting was requested; no resolution from AWU;
  • Incorporated body was in contravention of AWU regulations;
  • It is alleged that Ms Gillard herself threatened News Ltd;
  • Ms Gillard told WA Corporate Affairs Commissioner that the body was  to develop safe work places whereas, in her interview with S&G she said that it was a re-election or “slush” fund;
  • Therefore she deceived the WA corporate affairs commissioner;
  • Only two people involved whereas the commissioner in WA requires 5 people;
  • Her lover paid a deposit out of the “slush fund” on a house – Ms Gillard attended the auction;
  • potential conflict of interest in acting for the two men and the AWU
It is almost 12 months since Michael Smith sent the following e-mail to the Prime Minister:

Dear Prime Minister,
Did you ever create or cause any legal entity(ies) to be created with the letters AWU or words Australian Workers Union in its/their title(s)?
Did you create an Association known as “AWU Members Welfare Association”?
Did you establish or in any way instruct any person to establish any bank accounts associated with the “AWU Members Welfare Association” or “AWU Workplace Reform Association Inc” ?
Did you establish or in any way instruct any person to establish any bank accounts for the Australian Worker’s Union?
Did you receive any monies from any of the following bank accounts “AWU Workplace Reform Association” or “Australian Workers Union Members Welfare Association”?
Did you receive any clothes paid for by any other person or entity from the business known as Town Mode of Melbourne Fashion House?
Have you ever paid back any money to the Australian Workers’ Union?
Answered eventually by a PM staffer with a generic:
 The Prime Minister, as you note, has made comments about these matters in the past. I’d refer you to her comments."

Calls for PM Gillard to make a statement to Parliament (LINK The Australian)
Ms Gillard had strongly asserted she had done nothing wrong in relation to legal work for an allegedly corrupt Australian Workers Union official.
Mr Wilkie joined a call from Opposition Leader Tony Abbott for the prime minister to make a brief explanation to parliament.
"Serious allegations have been levelled at the prime minister and I think it would be helpful if she were to make a statement to the parliament to make absolutely clear her recollection of the events of years ago," he said in a statement.

The world is really cooling ~ NASA's Hansen

Kevin Trenberth: “The fact is that we can’t
account for the lack of warming at the
moment, and it is a travesty that we can’t.”

While NASA climate alarmist James Hansen insists record summer heat and drought are caused by man-made global warming, leaked internal emails from just three summers ago reveal that he and his colleagues expressed alarm that the planet was inexplicably cooling.
As the US experiences a heat-wave, Hansen, often referred to as the "godfather" of global warming, attributed the heat to man made CO2 emissions.

This is not some scientific theory,” he told the Associated Press. “We are now experiencing scientific fact.
But in 2009, as the thermometer hit record lows in America, he and other climate scientists panicked in a flurry of emails: “Skeptics will be all over us – the world is really cooling, the models are no good.”
One of the correspondents to the Climategate emails was New Zealander Kevin Trenberth of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. Kevin asked, “Where the heck is global warming?” And the now famous “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment, and it is a travesty that we can’t.
