How could Tony Abbott put Rudd and Gillard up for gongs?
Bill Clinton invited "closest supporter" Julie Bishop to a CF internal planning day

Wayne Swan FI - strip tax evaders of Order of Australia. How about tax-free home renos?

Here's Swan in the AFR.


It's a fair enough point.

"No one found guilty of deliberately breaking the law to reduce their financial contribution to our country can be considered to be 'in service' to Australia".

Gillard is still arguing the toss about the slush fund cash Bruce handed over to the builder Athol James to pay for her renos.

Having denied receiving the tainted money for so long, it's unlikely she's made an exception for the ATO and declared the income she received as payment for her legal work for Wilson and Ludwig.

Swan FI is right on this one.   Hand it back please.
