Julia Gillard’s Dirty Stinking Filthy Dirt File Uncovered!

June 14, 2012

Julia Gillard defends taxpayer funded dirt unit

It’s the shocking truth that Julia Gillard doesn’t want you to know, but thanks to our exclusive sources, SOURCES we can reveal EVERYTHING in this stunning expose!

That’s right, it’s the latest filthy chapter in the onslaught of scandal ridden controversies that have plagued the Gillard government in recent months and threatens to bring the Prime Minister’s already tenuous grip on power to the precipice of doom.

Following on from the ongoing Peter Slipper and Craig Thomson scandals, the PM is once again under attack from her own Labor party colleagues as well as the Opposition after her frank admission today that Labor is operating a taxpayer funded “dirt unit” charged with investigating the personal matters of Coalition frontbenchers.

By her own admission, the Prime Minister’s dirt unit is actively and covertly involved in uncovering Coalition MP’s use of social media, personal investment transactions, past employment history, involvement in any legal action, fundraising activities as well as any published articles as far back as fifty years ago.

It’s a stunning admission given that Julia Gillard lashed out at former Prime Minister John Howard in 2007 accusing him of “dirty tactics” alleging that the Coalition had collated a file on her past political affiliations.

The then deputy opposition leader Julia Gillard penned a newspaper opinion piece saying, “The public shouldn’t have to fund politicians digging up dirt.”

She wrote, “Whether the Australian people are interested or not, dirt-digging is now huge business in federal politics. The Howard government just loves using taxpayers’ dollars to finance its re-election.”

And quote, “As a politician, I expect scrutiny. But should the public be footing the bill? Labor says no.”

With the Government recently accusing the Opposition of a spate of vicious and personal attacks on former Labor, now independent MP Craig Thomson, and stood aside speaker Peter Slipper, some are worried that Labor’s credibility is now FUBAR.

The self-evident hypocrisy is astounding and has shocked senior Labor party figures.

Senior Minister Simon Crean has made it clear where he stands.

“I don’t believe in dirt files. I don’t think it’s appropriate to use anyone to compile dirt files” said Mr Crean today.

“I think politics has got to get above that. Politics has got to be about causes, issues; it’s got to be about good policy, not dirt” he said.

    And the NO Coalition doesn’t have a dirt file squad, and uses their political staff to acquire dirt? What a joke!

    “And the NO Coalition doesn’t have a dirt file squad”

    Of course not, how dare you suggest such a thing!*

    It’s not like they latched on to Godwin Gretch or James Ashby when there was a remote whiff of political opportunity to be gained from digging up some manure of their own…

    The feigned indignant outrage from Tony Abbott was hilarious yesterday though!

    Oh the disgust, oh the outrage!

    THE chief political adviser to the Prime Minister has resigned after it was revealed he circulated a “dirt file” to ministerial offices as a guide to digging up damaging information on opposition MPs.

    Good riddance, I say … advisor? Chief Advisor! Chief fkn advisor’s arsehole … where do they get ’em from … I mean he looks like he’s still in high school (wonder if he knows, Noddy?) …

    …now … who’s doing it in the Opposition Camp … bugger .. the whole PARTY!? AND its blogging supporters!? Well whose going to resign, then???? Muchly amused! Oh how we giggled and giggled last night!

    Even ToMMie saw the funny side and she has NO sense of humour … and, a dedicated whinger to boot!

    Bill Kelty – “you can’t blame the opposition, you can’t blame the media, you have to be honest”

    Wise advice that never seems to sink in to those who-
    • Prefer to blame the media
    • Enjoy blaming the opposition
    • Excuse dishonesty, but only when this government is dishonest
    All the moral high ground that ALP barrackers used to take is now only the moral low ground. Honesty is only relative, measured against the worst of Howard.

    It’s been a remarkable slide from high principle into political duplicity and expediency.
    ———————————
    TB – “no sense of humour”

    Don’t you think the above is funny??

    Well said. That seems to be the prevailing wisdom at the cafe….

    Nothing to see here. We already know that Gillard is a dumb fucking lying hypocrite. She is PM only because she is the most putrid turd bobbing around in the sewer of mediocrity that is the ALP. Her big mistake is to think that voters are so stupid as to believe her lies.

    And no, I do not need to be told by some anus-fingering ALP shill that the other guys are just as bad. That does not justify the the graceless lack of dignity with which this government debases politics in this country. I could understand if she was merely incompetent. But I am sickened by the fact that we have a morally diseased and utterly demented swine as PM.

    It an unwritten rule of politics that each side keeps a dirt file on the other side.

    But this time some fucking moron in the PMs Office decided to formalize the whole thing by putting the unwritten rule down in writing (an email)

    What a fucking moron……………………….what fucking Moron hired him ?

    Yeah……………who else but the same fucking Moron we have as a PM

    I think Abbott was flummoxed for a coherent answer as even he had not envisaged the latest piece of lunacy that emanated from the PMs Office.

    He, I believe, was left absolutely dumbstruck and genuinely in shock at how stupid they are

    “But what do you really think”

    Long ago and far away a bright young activist joined the Socialist Forum to help make the world a better place. But along the way the practical realities intruded. Making your way in the world of Labor politics is not without its compromises, but you need to be in power to make real change.

    At first it seemed that the necessary compromises did undermine the ultimate goal. As time went on and the path to power opened up the slow erosion of values went unnoticed. By the time it came to knifing Rudd her core values, her integrity and indeed her sense of personal dignity had shriveled to the point of desiccation. All that is left is the pursuit of power and its privileges. Truly she is the Empress Palpatine.

    “By the time it came to knifing Rudd her core values,…………….”

    I read a commentator somewhere this morning that noted that Gillard is clearly still worried about Rudd hence her blatant swipe at him with her “smartest person in the room comment” this week.

    There Rudd was behaving very well for the last couple of months and Gillard comes along this week and pokes him in the eyes.

    You mean these ones?

    The AEC analysis reveals that Mr Thomson and the HSU National Office regularly disclosed to it the amount of funds that were being spent on advertising and other campaign expenses.

    The analysis notes that the combined $196, 000 worth of salaries of Crisalee Stevens and Matthew Burke – who were employed at the HSU to help directly with Mr Thomson’s bid for Parliament – had been properly disclosed in HSU third party expenditure returns for 2006/07 and 2007/08.

    This afternoon Mr Thomson tweeted a short response to the electoral commission findings.

    “AEC report clearly shows FWA got it wrong on electoral expenses. Wonder how widely that gets reported!”

    Isn’t that how ‘dirt’ files are supposed to be played. I reckon, about now, the libs are wishing there was no focus on ‘dirt’ (or ‘clips’ if you will)

    What is the allegation?? Mal Brough is not even in parliament. Perhaps the Libs through Brough were trying to find something on Slipper?? I am not even sure what the allegation is. Furthermore isn’t Slipper a member of the Liberal party?? Maybe the Libs did not want Slipper as speaker and are trying to spread dirt?? I don’t think they need to do this. Slipper does appear to leave a dirt trail anyway.

    We have that compared to something coming out of the PM’s office with another staffer leaving. The guy who started the race riots also left the PM’s office.

    And it is in court because Slipper is being sued by Ashby.

    Just another look over there by TomR when the PM is up to her neck in dirt.

    I love the logic re Jackson etc…

    • Thomson is an MP
    • Jackson isn’t.
    • Thomson spent lots of union cash on personal expenses including prostitutes, according to an independent report by a statutory body, with a former ACTU official at its head, and a former ALP advisor supervising the investigation.
    • Jackson doesn’t have any findings against her.
    • Jackson is the target of lots of allegations.
    • Jackson has a live in relationship that undermines her standing.
    • Gillard’s live in relationship with a union official/fraudster has nothing to do with her standing, and it’s misogynist to say so.

    I just saw Nicola Roxon commenting on the Slipper case, and today’s proceedings.

    What happened to the government line of “we don’t comment on matters that are before the courts”.

    I think it is bizarre that the Attorney General would provide a daily commentary on matters directly involving the Commonwealth. She’s incompetent.
