Why Julia stabbed Wilkie

Its perfectly simple, heres a pictorial.

Mr Wilkie proposed restrictions on poker machines. He was extremely sincere in his opposition to them.

This is Julia Gillard, she was extremely sincere in wishing to form government in Australia after the last election.

This is Julia Gillard sincerely forming government with the Support of Mr Wilkie, who believed he had secured a sincere promise of pokie reform in exchange for Ms Gillard securing power.

Then something happened to change everything…


The ALP owns a number of the clubs that in turn, own a number of pokie machines, State ALP received hundreds of thousands in donations every election from these clubs.

Now Julia is left honouring an agreement she feels little or nothing about, if she does this state ALP branches will lose a huge source of funding. State ALP may be in  sincere “discussions” about this..

So its perfectly simple, to keep a promise she made which will cause her party financial pain, and make another “Kevin” challenge inevitable, or burn Wilkie.

Facinating Mr Wilkie, come closer and tell me more...

Wilkie is toast.

From the Australian, a bit of vital background…

“But Mr Hatch told The Australian Online he didn’t see how the Canberra Labor Clubs group, which donated about $600,000 to the ACT branch of the Labor Party in 2009-10, could isolate the compensation from other revenue sources.”

    a great post, BUT…
    people on the RHS column (eg Andrew Bolt, bingbing) can’t be accessed cos a notice comes up over the Tizona page:

    “Stop running this script?
    A script on this page is causing Internet Explorer to run slowly. If it continues to run, your computer might become unresponsive.
    YES NO ”

    I click on ‘yes’, but still can’t access those on the RHS. What is the’script on this page’? Is there a problem that Tizona can fix? (This problem has occurred for a few days now)

      Ive had the same thing, but I dont know how to fix it. If you right click and go “open in a new window” it works ok..

      They are coming up for me just fine. I’m using Chrome, and I generally right-click them and select “open in new tab”. Perhaps it’s your browser? I stick to either Chrome or Firefox; have never used Internet Explorer.

    It couldn’t have happened to a more deserving self-righteous self-adoring way-up-himself smug knowall preike.
    See that cloud on the horizon, Andrew Wilkie? It’s the fog of irrelevance. And it’s heading your way.

    Many thanx, froll & spot, your suggestions work really well (open in new tab/ window both work). Really grateful.
    Blight has finally called the election in QLD. Can’t wait. Wish it was federal as well. Can’t wait to see Slipper ‘performing’ tho. And how come Craig Thomson is suddenly so chipper, breaking out in SMH? it really is the silly season- & I don’t just mean QLD’s sudden sodden weather.

    Hmmmm the “Office” of Julia Gillard are getting very good at “stabbing”people that Julia doesn’t like. Wonder who is next on the “list” it backfired on Australia Day when “they”went after Abbott. Notice Julia is still blaming Abbott today in the media.

Well, SAY something...
