Some interesting information came to light this week, (from, um, let’s just say an impeccable source from deep within the Labor Party, and I would give my right testicle to be able to tell you who). 

I always wondered why the disastrous Julia Gillard was feted as ‘PM extraordinaire’ at the ALP National Conference by Big Bill Ludwig whose union she helped steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from.

To quickly recap: In August of 1995 Gillard was discovered assisting to steal funds from her employer, Slater & Gordon’s, blue chip client, the AWU. 

Peter Gordon pulled Gillard in and asked her to explain on tape but apparently the explanation was lacking and Peter Gordon claims to have sacked her on the spot. 

S & G Partner, Bernard Murphy, who was also involved in the scam, was asked to leave at the same time. (Later as PM, Gillard promoted him to the Bench of the Federal Court.)

Bill Ludwig was livid and called in the cops to find the funds and lay charges. He also commenced Federal Court proceedings to recover $114,000 that Gillard’s lover, Bruce Wilson, had paid himself and others in redundancy payments once they had realised the game was up. 

The Court duly ruled in favour of Ludwig’s application.

This is where it gets interesting. Strangely, and despite the Court ruling, Ludwig made no attempt to recover the $114,000 from Wilson and others. 

Stranger still, although the AWU had sacked S & G and moved their account to the other bent Labor law firm Maurice Blackburn, who at the time employed lovers Roxon and Shorten, no attempt was made to recover the defrauded funds or to indict S & G, Gillard, Murphy or Wilson. 

In fact Police were so frustrated by the lack of cooperation from the supposed “victims”, they closed the file.

Why? Why did the many “victims” of Gillard and Wilson (all except the AWU’s Bob Kernohan) suddenly want the matter shut down? 

Bill Shorten certainly wanted it shut down and even called in the heavies to bash Bob after he refused to accept the safe Melbourne seat of Melton as a pay-off.

“You know, a lot of money changed hands around that time”, said my informant. “No, no I didn’t know that”, I said, sitting bolt upright. “Can you tell me about that?”

“Well, Ludwig was given $50,000 in cash and others were given lesser amounts.” 

“By whom?”, I asked. 

“Who do you think? Wilson of course!” 

“Who were the others?” I asked. “I can’t say who, but let's just say a lot of money changed hands”, he said.

I lit a rollie,“Let me get this straight, so AWU heavies, whose members were defrauded of hundreds of thousands, were silenced using those same defrauded funds? Do Vicpol know about this?”

“You bet they do.” 

So now it makes sense… the missing piece of the puzzle! Shorten, Ludwig and others had, apparently inexplicably, shut down the police investigation because they had willingly become beneficiaries of the defrauded funds. (Although I have no direct evidence that Shorten himself was a recipient.)

Of course Shorten has always been the “go to” man for corruption cover-ups. 

He went close to “burying” the $20 million Michael Williamson defrauded from HSU East branch members. 

Shorten savagely targeted and victimised whistleblower Kathy Jackson and sequestrated the Union to get his grubby hands on the books. 

Fortunately that didn’t work and Williamson, via a plea bargain (he accepted a charge of stealing a mere $1 million so he couldn't be interrogated) is now facing a long jail sentence.

The Bligh Government, before it was thrown out, also handed unaccounted-for millions to Ludwig’s Queensland Racing. 

In 1999, Beattie’s Government privatised the TAB and sold it for the bargain basement price of $262 Million. 

Who they sold it to (the shareholders) reads like a who’s who of Labor crooks, including Queensland Racing’s Bob Bentley, who he himself admits is “likely” to spend some time with Her Majesty.

Unitab now clears in excess of $100 million per year.

Ludwig’s grifted dollars are converted to union numbers and those numbers are converted to power. 

Power enabled the unholy alliance of Richo’s and Bob Carr’s NSW Right, Victoria’s Socialist Left and Ludwig’s QLD AWU to present us with a delightful three years of Julia Gillard. 

The list of who Julia duly repaid is a long one.

Mafioso bosses ruled from their cells as indeed Labor luminaries intend to.

… and the disgustingly credentialled Bill Shorten has their next tick of approval.

“Was pensioner Vilma Ward hiding something when had a verbal stoush with the Prime Minister? Ben Fordham talks to Vilma about her ties to Kevin Rudd and the Labor Party.” Was listening to this on my way home. She was the “typical” pensioner. What came out of it, her husband was a union secretary, she rooted for Rudd in his campaign, she rooted for all the Laborites! And then had the hide to say she was entitled to speak as she was “just a pensioner” Like you said, hand picked rubbish

Hello, You might be interested in my efforts with regards to party Gillards appointment as Chair to the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) an affiliate organization of the World Bank. http://www.globalpartnership.org/ I had written objecting to this appointment based upon my personal experiences regarding the 2nd abduction of my two daughters from their Whyalla home by the Adelaide Community Health Service Mum and her boyfriend at Christmas 1999 and the ongoing issues surrounding the Slater’s law firm, the AWU, and the Association . The GPE do not bregard transparency and without that there is no accountability and without that there… Read more »

I have been annoying all of my political mates ever since Kernohan’s affidavit emerged 2 years ago showing up Dilson Gullard Soxon & Shorty etc for the thieves they are. Lets hope the royal commission has the balls to follow this through and make an example of this lot and they dont let it get swept under the carpet again.

What a incestuous lot that last Labor Rudd/Gillard/Rudd Government was, Shorton up Roxon before the GG daughter, Emerson up Gillard after Wilson and before the first bloke and Combet up the newsreader. If they spent more time looking after the country instead of rooting they may have achieved something.

So at last, the Bonnie and Clyde of the union movement are finally about to arrive at their Bienville Parish. Instead of BAR machine guns with a hail AP rounds about to do justice on them, it’s barristers with damning, irrefutable evidence. Soon all that will be left for us to ponder is how such a low crook could swindle her way into the highest office of the land. For that we must look at the stinking, corruption-riddled culture of the Labor Party, where those who know most about where the bodies are buried rise highest. Promotion based not on… Read more »

So I look carefully at the photo. A Queensland Union thug in his cheap suit, his shearer’s hands holding aloft the wing of a socialist scum bag with a predilection for ‘rough trade’ to take over a union run party because of her background with unions and union heavies. When a person is this far out of her depth they generally scream unfair accusations against any who would question her. I bet she used the ‘don’t patronize me’ phrase a bit too. When that doesn’t work they then scream ‘sexist pig’ and ‘misogynist’. I’ve seen it all before. What a… Read more »

OT just for a bit. Did anyone see the devout muslims on Foreign Correspondent last night? All kid fucking rapists and quite proud of it. According to the Care Bears, it’s because women are segregated and kept inside. These are the scum that the labor/greenslime allowed into OZ. Get rid of the pricks before it’s too late. Or are we past that point?

Rather interesting to see the real character of the man – Gillard’s ex boyfriend Bruce Wilson outside the court yesterday – he has not weathered well despite living high on the hog. I have to say – her taste in men is dreadful. Maybe that’s how she knows so much about ‘sexist pigs’ and misogynists. The creep Wilson even beat up a photographer on his way out. Sadly Gillard will come out of this – somehow unscathed. And that’s a crime in itself.
