Gillard’s Trilogy – Part I – Shorten

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

While that Gillard person steadfastly denies her mens rea and assidiously works on her insanity defence [Fog of Chaos – Gillard not responsible] thus showing that her legal education was not totally wasted, it is painfully obvious that she missed all the ethic lectures. Perhaps Labor lawyers are exempt on the grounds that they will never need so remote subject.

Rather then from a quill of the aging cynic, the following comes from a computer of fearless Larry Pickering:


As the truth closes in on Gillard and the rats start scratching at portholes, Bill Shorten is the first to prepare to desert the front line and leave his “mates” in the trenches.

His pitiful attempt at fending off questions on the (previously asleep) ABC was unconvincing for good reason because Bill Shorten knows more than anyone about Gillard’s complicity in the AWU fraud. It was Shorten who went to great lengths to have it covered up.

Shorten sat there, on the Lateline program, wriggling in his seat, alternating between shades of crimson, “I can’t recall… I wasn’t there”, he blustered. But you WERE there, Bill Shorten.

As campaign manager for Bob Kernohan in 1992, you produced pamphlets documenting his opponent’s (Bruce Wilson’s) fraudulent activities. Are you sure you weren’t there Shorten? Are you sure you know nothing about this Gillard/Wilson thing?

If I presented you with one of your pamphlets, would you perhaps remember then?

You had just completed your articles at Maurice Blackburn lawyers and on the AWU’s payroll under Bob Kernohan when the extent of the Gillard/Wilson fraud became known.

It was you, Bill Shorten, who stood there with Bill Ludwig and tried to convince Ian Cambridge to drop his demands for a Royal Commission and asked him to refuse to co-operate with the police investigation.

You were successful with Cambridge (and Gillard has repaid him well) but even your union thugs couldn’t convince Kernohan to back off, could they?

If this gets out, we are all history!” That was how you described it, wasn’t it Shorten? Union members were not a priority for you, were they?

Gillard’s “slush fund” Shorten described as, “…unauthorised, out of bounds and inappropriate.” Really, Shorten? Then why did you do everything possible to bury the scam in the same way as you have recently attempted to bury the HSU’s lost $20 million. It looks like you will fail on both counts, eh?

So, you were being groomed by Big Bill Ludwig as a future Labor leader eh? A labor leader who lies through his teeth, cares nothing for workers, covers up scams and can’t keep his dick in his trousers?

Come to think of it, you might fill the role admirably.

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
