“… this woman needs to be put in her place.”

No, not Julia Gillard but Grace Collier according to AFR correspondent Peter Mansell ($).

So what did Grace Collier write ($) to cause such an outburst?

Let’s examine objectively who our Prime Minister is. Julia Gillard is highly educated and now finds herself in a position of privilege, yet her persona is that of a likeable “bogan” unimpressed by power or money. She has a non-traditional personal life yet has managed to cast her opponent – a traditional married man – as a creepy weirdo.

Gillard flies around in a corporate jet while portraying herself as a victim of a sexist system. She won praise for an hour-long press conference in which she left us with the impression that to set up a trust fund was a grave offence whereas to set up a slush fund was OK.

Our Prime Minister has no more time for the AWU scandal; she has a country to run.

But if you have been covering your ears and turning your face away from the bewildering story that this scandal is, I have news. Ralph Blewitt, the man who is at the centre of the AWU slush fund matter, is poised to tell all he knows to police.

Through the foggy confusion, the tip of a very big iceberg has just come into view.

    “… this woman needs to be put in her place.”

    This clown Mansell is obviously a moby.

    Surely no Gillard supporter could have such a low level of self awareness as to write that… Could they?

    “… but surely this woman needs to be put in her place.”

    Misogyneeeee!

    Yes well, good luck with that Mr Blewitt seeing as how four lots of files have now mysteriously disappeared.

    Wow. The ABC still can’t spot a cover up.

    nah. A moby is a lefty pretending to be rightwing, to make them look idiots.
    Named after the singer who encouraged his peeps to do just that.

    The term you’re after is a ‘Composta’

    The term you’re after is a ‘Composta’

    I stand corrected.

  8. papachango

    I don’t know if Composta is the ‘official’ term yet for a righty pretending to be a lefty, but it should be – it was the finest example of the genre I’d ever seen :D

    I see Bolt has linked to a piece by Grattan about Bishop representing CSR framed by a photo of Bishop looking as though she has just sat on a pineapple.

    Is Grattan a female impersonator?

    Well, if I wasn’d married, I would invite Grace to stay at my place! I think she is fantastic. Educated, intelligent, thoughtful, fair views based on firt hand experienc, beautiful.

    “AFR correspondent”.

    To be clear, this is some random writing a letter to the editors. He represents nobody, least of all the AFR.

  14. m0nty

    Sure Sinc, just clarifying.

    “This woman needs to be put in her place.” A shovel in the front yard usually sends the appropriate message, eh Peter? wink wink. x

    Wow I had no idea the smears on Bishop were so flimsy:

    The latest allegations relate to two test cases in the early 1990s involving CSR as the parent company of Australian Blue Asbestos and the West Australian State Government Insurance Office. The cases were to test if CSR had liability – after a judge found that it did, many workers’ claims were paid.

    Test cases.

    So if my legal fees are paid by the ATO in a tax test case I can be smeared as ‘a man who lost to the tax office in court’ or ‘a man who took the tax office to the highest court, eventually winning on a technicality’?

    Lord help us.

    Seen the pic the Age uses of her online? Flattering, not.

  19. lotocoti

    A person of the strong character…

    …would have said “Sorry, but this is dodgy and I won’t help you.”

    AKA Mrs Magoo, thanks to the Bear…

    I think she is fantastic. Educated, intelligent, thoughtful, fair views based on firt hand experienc, beautiful.

    Also, it’s worth noting that she started off in the union movement with the worst of em – CFMEU, Storemen & Packers etc, before mvoing to the employer advocacy side, so she knows how the unions operate from the inside.

    jeez they must hate her guts as a ‘turncoat’, ‘rat’, ‘scab’ or whatever term they use these days :D

    “I think it’s perfectly fair for the government to raise these questions [about Julie Bishop], just as it’s perfectly fair for us to raise questions (about Julia Gillard),” Mr Abbott said.

    “I would invite everyone who was in legal practice at that time and who has questions raised about the professionalism of their practice to be as open and as transparent as Julie Bishop has been.”

    The opposition should move a motion to suspend standing orders to allow Julie Bishop to make a full statement to the parliament to answer the allegations that have been made against her in her professional capacity as a lawyer with Clayton Utz.

    That would stick the ALP in their place and show Gillard is evasive piece of work she is for all to see.

    They are getting really worried if this is all they can throw at Bishop.

    Good idea; send the suggestion off to Ms Bishop.

    Absolutely. Put it all out there and show the public. Then turn around and ask the government to do the same. You’d want to be pretty sure of your cleanliness though.

    Clayton Utz is to Slater Gordon as Arsenal is to a pub soccer team

    Grace Collier, hotter than a pistol. Mmm-mmm.
