    Since August you have been promising that the truth will come out, that the PM is in this up to her eyeballs, questioning the intelligence of anyone who didn't buy into the word of two embittered media hacks, and now it looks as though, at best, these are allegations that can't possibly be proven and at worst they are just outright bullshit from a few dinosaurs who still can't handle a chick running the shop.

    Let's come back to this on Thursday night, but in any event I'm more interested in the Vic fraud squad investigation.

    I actually had a pleasant day but it's raining heavily here now.

    Thanks for asking, though.

    So Julie Bishop has the smoking gun gun her hand, the one that will prove the guilt of the PM beyond all reasonable doubt, but instead choose to be made to look like a dickhead on national television rather than reveal it? Or is it one of the other conga line of suckholes that the Coalition has brought forth to convince us of Gillard's guilt. Tell me man, you are so utterly convinced of her guilt.

    A variant of the ad hominem argument. Good for you. Tough day for the Tories, I see.

    Thanks for the flattery, Jane but you won't get any 'adjudication' from me. Too many unknowns. That was the point of posting the link - to show the difficulty in drawing conclusions based on limited knowledge. Having said that, I don't see any clear reason to deviate from his conclusions, notwithstanding the arguments from the randoms in the comments.

    And while I'm here, one more comment. I don't know that 7.30 covered itself in glory by interviewing RB and BW. Hard to see what value or insight they added.

    And just in case you missed it Jane, did you see vex saying mark baker was best man at Styant Browne's wedding?

    Must wait until Thursday... there's a question that the PM totally won't be able to answer and the whole edifice will just come crashing down :rolleyes:

    I don't know much about Blewiit, but I presume pretty much everyone involved in this saga is a crook. It is Slaters and the AWU afterall.

    Indifference is the only intelligent option with such horrible political parties. You keep up the one eyed barracking like it's football though champ. :thumbsu:

    Blewitt and Wilson have about the same lack of credibility. Anybody claiming either one's word is worth anything is an idiot. Thankfully Gillard isn't relying on either of their statements. Bishop on the other hand...

    Just watch it. Its on iview. I'm sure they're all crooked too but only one of them is putting himself forward to sink the PM and secure himself immunity for his efforts

    No surprise that the bigger crook is the one not supporting your point of view.

    They're both scumbags.

    Bolded is a dull, hackneyed, and nowadays populist stance. A truly reductive and ignorant statement usually made by self-serving swinging voters. You keep up your chicken-liver inability to be able to articulate or argue a position, champ. :thumbsu:

    Entirely rational. Why vote for any of them? Extraordinarily useless and populist / more than likely useless.

    Whilst slavish fanboism may be your cup of tea it's a bit rich to criticise others for not embracing the same.

    You must have loved Shorten's effort.

    "Self serving swinging voters" heh. You lot are the reason why the parties can get away with putting up empty suits and hacks to represent us. You'll defend them to the death too even though they don't give a shit about you or any of the other rusted on zombies.
