Here's Gillard's evidence about the delay - there'd been an "inquiry" about whether or not the association was a trade union.
Julia Gillard was being examined about this advertisement in the West Australian newspaper, 6 March, 1992.
Ms Gillard was trying to say she knew nothing about the ad, what was in it, or how it got in the paper - but she was getting tied up
While she was struggling up to his feet jumped her Counsel.
Gillard did more than give advice on incorporation of the association.
After the initial application was refused Gillard made a written appeal to the Minister.
The association was incorporated on the Minister's direction.
Gillard is covering up for her true role by using a forged letter to stitch up Ralph Blewitt.
A confidential source sent me this in the very early days - not long after 2UE.
Union re-election funds are common but only challengers worry about secrecy.
Wilson had been secretary for over a year and Bill Ludwig was in it with him.
They were worried because the Association should never have been incorporated. If it was it should have been under Industrial Laws.
Jeremy Stoljar used the words from the Associations Incorporation Act "a trade union is ineligible for incorporation".
The 7 second pause that follows is telling.
The AWU WRA Inc was refused incorporation.
Gillard appealed and argued the case - including submissions in writing from Thiess and the national head office of the AWU.
What Gillard did should be in this file.
That's why the forgery was produced.
But she's not the only one in it.
Mr Neal can give evidence about his own signature - but what about his signature stamp?
He says he did not write the letter, would not be a party to it and could not legally have made the offer in it.
Ralph Mineif is the only other staffer who could have used Ray Neal's signature stamp.
Mr Mineif is even more emphatic than Mr Neal - he could not, would not and did not have anything to do with the letter.
But just in case - here are the signature on the letter and the signature stamp from the certificate:
It's a simple task to extract and compare them - and it's clear the stamp was not used on the forgery.
Ray Neal didn't write the letter.
Ralph Mineif didn't write the letter.
Ralph Blewitt didn't get the memo that Gillard used to load him up.
What more do authorities need?
