Is Gillard in trouble?

Andrew Bolt is blogging about a coming bombshell for Julia Gillard:

On Monday, I’m tipping, a witness with a statutory declaration will come forward and implicate Julia Gillard directly in another scandal involving the misuse of union funds.

Gillard herself is not accused of any misbehaviour at all. I do not make that claim, and do not hold that belief. But her judgment – and that of at least one of her ministers – will come under severe question. She will seem compromised.

It could be the last straw for Gillard’s leadership.

At the moment I am not at liberty to reveal the contents of the stat dec before me. I suspect a friend of mine in the media will be authorised to release it first. I will let you know when and where.

And then he updates his post:

Michael Smith of 2UE has read out from this statutory declaration, drawn up by Bob Kernohan, the former president of the Australian Workers Union, in August last year. To honor my deal with the author, who will speak to Smith on Monday’s show, I believe, I will publish only those parts which Michael has already read out or paraphrased:


Ouch, this is going to hurt. There is plenty more on Andrew’s post.

    Andrew Bolt’s blog is great! I don’t drop in there every day, but he is excellent in busting PC bullshit – things like that.
    I’ve also seen one or two of his articles criticising Islam – they were very good.

    This stuff is political dynamite! Well done Andrew Bolt. We could see the end of Gillard very soon.

    The Thomson affair is the tip of an iceberg that could rock the ALP and Australian trade union movement to the core if all is exposed to the public. How those vested interests choose to ‘bury’ the Thomson scandal will be fascinating.
