And not before time, it seems that all the ducks are lined up for a appearance before the Royal Commission into Trade Unions this week.
Mea culpa, mea culpa will be on the cards or a long stint in the “go slow ” for this mob who have continued to disgrace the union movement.
Remember Kathy Jackson? She was the one who squealed like a stuck pig that she was the only person in the trade union movement as pure as the driven snow.
Well, talk about your actions coming back to bite you on the arse, Kathy or “Jungles” as she is known to her close personal friends (called Jungles because she’s so “thick”), is now in more shit than a Werribee duck.
It seems that Jungles has now been caught up in her own web of lies and all her friends would now fit in the side car of a motor bike.
Remember the glowing tributes from Abbott, Alan Jones and every other shock jock in Sydney that crawled from under the rocks where they hide at night.
“A heroine and a whistle blower”, according to Abbot and Jones, and the catalyst for this bogus attack on trade unions.
Not before time all her criminal cronies will all be lining up to explain their criminal activities to the Commission.
The Gorgonzola cheese is smelling like a rose out Darebin way
Diana Asmar will get a guernsey this week.
Asmar is the former Mayor and disgraced Councillor of Darebin council who left her position under a very big cloud of criminality after the Victorian Ombudsman’s report into the council. A report which, to the chagrin of all of Darebin ratepayers, has never been released, a cover up of political extraordinary proportions.
Why would the Victorian Ombudsman conduct a inquiry into the dealing of corruption, such as bribes to councilors from developers, and not release a report?
Money given to Asmar
Kathy Jackson gave Asmar $5,000, Bill Shorten gave a similar amount and when Kathy caught up with Bill they realised that Dianne had played them for mugs and got a donation from both
She is now the extremely lazy and incompetent secretary of the Hospital Services union, after being given campaign funds derived from Jacksons fund which stole money from the workers at the Peter Mc Callum cancer centre.
She will have to explain why she accepted money from Bill Shortens fund industry 2000 ,Asmar also accepted money from Jacksons cancer fund and the Plumbers union .
$250, 0000 all up from unions and bosses contributing to dodgy slush funds like Shorten’s fund and the plumbers union, all orchestrated by Labor politicians such as Steven Conroy , David Feeney and the leader of the labor party Bill Shorten .
The trade union movement must distance itself from funds derived from employer contributions and realise the there is no such thing as a free lunch. Every time a company makes a donation to a union for elections it’s simply buying into how the union is run. Corruption, plain and simple, with employers having a say in who leads unions in the struggle for Workers’ Rights
Let’s cut to the chase of criminality of this union after very strong and effective leadership in the 1980s by Jan Armstrong and others such as Gail Gills. This was a proud and effective union, until Jeff Jackson and Kathy decided to create their own fiefdom .
Jeff is also up this week, no one knows how he will be able to justify his spending on prostitutes, his expensive dinners and generous largesse.
Kathy Jackson has to explain why she gave her ex husband Jeff $50.000 out of the slush fund from the illegal fund from the cancer workers ,and couldn’t remember it.
Maybe Kathy slipped Jeff the $50.000 to pay his outstanding bill at the brothel he and Craig Thomson used .
It’s now on the public record that Jeff was revealed to use the same brothel she accused Thomson of using, receipts now available .
Obviously she wasn’t aware that her husband was tag teaming with Thomson at the same knock shop before she decided to turn stool pigeon and label all union officials as corrupt .
Kimberly Kitching, former bankrupt and now office manager is accused of bullying and harassment. Kitching has enormous political clout and has been considered for safe labor seats by the corrupt factional system within the Victorian labor party. Her only drawback is that she was married to Andrew Landeryou, a man proven to be as crooked as a dog’s hind leg, who escaped overseas when being investigated about a $6 million fraud on the University of Melbourne .
Andrew returned from overseas when Kimberly was declared bankrupt and lost her house to of all people, Solomon Lew
The fraud at the university is a different story but rest assured, Andrew is as bogus as a $3 bill. A liar, cheat and fraudster who knows no bounds, still an adviser to Asmar and Kitchings, in plain words a crook who advises a union on industrial tactics without a skerrick of industrial nouse . A shambles !!!
I have worked along side these characters for many years in my role as a trade union official knowing full well what they were up to. I have protested their criminal actions since 2000 and have raised these concerns of my radio programme since then.
I have sought, through Freedom Of Information, details of Kathy Jackson and of Michael Lawler, a Vice President of Fair Work Australia, about what I believe to be their criminal action – being in a relationship and appearing in the same jurisdiction together
As a representative of trade unions for 35 years, I abhor that it’s taken this long for these grubs to be exposed.
The main instigator of this corrupt behaviour are the factions of the right wing labor party without a concern for working class people. For them it’s simply a deal to retain power for conference delegates and power in the end for the labor elite.
Long live the working class without these grubs
