connecting the dots … part3

Labor powerbrokers now become my focus on Bing as a result of Part 2 Connecting the dots: Karl Bitar resignation: ends a trail of wreckage across NSW and …Karl Bitar departs Labor’s national … of Eric Roozendaal who replaced Michael … today from my beloved PM Julia Gillard. saying “ I would like to thank Karl Bitar for … Issue 65 | The Sydney Institute Mr Aarons was particularly upset by such NSW Right figures as Mark Arbib and Karl Bitar being involved in the removal of Kevin Rudd and his replacement by Julia Gillard. Union strongmen, I believe, now working for Packers Crown Casino.

Next, lets have a look at some links from a comment on michaelsmithnews:… …

Bracks and Brumby governments, planners, regulator, unions and builders a bit too close?

Gillard dismisses claims of Maxine McKew |  The former ABC journalist also says another Labor minister, Brendan O’Connor, a supporter of Ms Gillard, had shown research to fellow frontbencher Robert McClelland[…] “This isn’t Tony Abbott saying you can’t trust this prime minister – this is a staunch Labor person saying you can’t trust this prime minister,”[…]

Lets look at Brendan O’Connor, yet another lawyer with a union bent. Wiki says: He firstly began his union career as an organiser with the now defunct Municipal Employees Union of Victoria; and was then appointed as Assistant National Secretary with the Australian Services Union before entering politics. He is a member of the Ferguson Left faction of the Victorian branch of the Labor Party.

      • An Audioboo by michaelsmithnews … For her pre-selection for Lalor. No one likes being lies to.

        Well look-ee here, another Ferguson who knew Comrade Gillard 20 years ago!: New PM Julia Gillard buoys Macarthur Labor candidate – Government…Reid Labor MP Laurie Ferguson, who will contest Werriwa after he was parachuted into the seat with Ms Gillard’s support, chalked up Mr Rudd’s downfall to his reluctance to consult within the party.

        “I first met Julia Gillard in Melbourne 20 years ago,” he said. “She is very articulate and very intelligent.” (What, not young and naive 20 years ago?)

        He downplayed any parallels between his own manoeuvre and Ms Gillard’s ascent: “It was democratic, and Kevin saw that and stood down. Why can’t parties change leaders?” Julia Gillard hate tattoos on young women | backbencher Laurie Ferguson ambles down. “Did you get my text?” she says, waving her BlackBerry in his direction. Ferguson mumbles assent. Gillard – who saved Ferguson‘s …

        Now I get it, he is Resources Minister Martin Ferguson’s brother. Now, about that young and naive, cough: Julia Gillard criminal past? – Welcome to Truthology “I was young and naive. “I was in a … for Industrial Relations, Mr Laurie … 12 and 15 years ago,” “I was young and naive.” Well Julia Gillard was […] Both Bill Shorten and Jennie George  who are mentioned above, and went on to become Federal Politicians,  helped Julia Gillard become Prime Minister while they both were well  aware of her history and helped cover it up […]…dentities.html […]and shorten and roxon used to go out together which I find interesting as well[…]

        So now, Shorten and Roxon, knew all about Gillard’s crooked past: Part 3 – Home – The Pickering Post […]They waved, crossed the road, and sat down with Julia Gillard and Bruce … the other infamous Left wing Law firm, Maurice Blackburn, where Bill Shorten and Nicola Roxon .. So, who is Nicola Roxon? Nicola Roxon – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia […] Between 1992 and 1994, Roxon was employed as a judge’s associate to High Court Justice Mary Gaudron.[1] She then became involved with the trade union movement, joining the National Union of Workers as an organiser. Roxon was also an industrial lawyer and senior associate with the law firm Maurice Blackburn and Co. from 1996 to 1998. A Union lawyer. For the AWU after Gillard was sacked by Slater and Gordon, who were sacked by the AWU.

        Jenny George helped Gillard become Prime Minister, Wiki: George was a Secondary school teacher and teacher trade unionist, and was elected General Secretary of the New South Wales Teachers Federation 1980-82. Journalist Brad Norrington alleged that during the 1960s and early 1970s she was a member of the Communist Party of Australia; George denies this.   George was Vice President of the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) in 1987, Assistant Secretary of the ACTU 1991-96 and President of the ACTU 1996- March 2000. She was the first woman to hold this position. She was Assistant National Director, Trade Union Training Authority 1989-91. Failed that training bit, or succeeded, depending on how you see all those Union scandals.

        Thick as thieves the lot of them. Pickering, today:

        Is the Prime Minister a crook?

        Julia Gillard’s latest makeover appears insufficient to cover her past.

        An embattled Ralph Blewitt’s testimony will be challenged by the might of the PM’s Office but it is all too late. Basic truths are rapidly mushrooming to the surface and Pickering Post’s impeccable sources now appear to know more than even Ralph Blewitt knows.

        The Pickering Post will not again ask the Prime Minister for answers. We don’t need to ask now.

        We already know the answers and they are not pretty.

        WA Premier, Brian Burke, Alan Bond and Laurie Connell all served time. The infamous Wilson/Gillard alliance emerged from the ashes of the WA Inc. scandal.

        Still to look at Trio, Murphy, Conroy. This series may never end. Stand by for Part 4 soon. Then the last three who are represented by 7 volumes and 2000 pages of WA Inc.



About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level. If you note a photo or description may be wrong, please e-mail to
