Many decent people have been hurt by Gillard/Ludwig/Wilson et al and their crimes.
They're ruthless people who haven't shown much restraint in hurting those who threaten them.
But it's always the cover-up that gets them in the end.
Many of the cover-ups in The AWU Scandal have been complicated, fiddly jobs. They're hard to pull off and you're never 100% certain you've collected all the copies!
Remember Gillard had her staff contact News Limited in 2007 to deny she'd incorporated any funds for Wilson. When handwriting blew that she said she only gave legal advice. When the exit interview made it clear she'd also argued the case for incorporation she told press conferences and the parliament that "the claim has been made but no letter has been produced".
By September 2014 she was confident all the corporate affairs files had been emptied of paperwork she'd produced - paperwork that discloses she knew exactly what Thiess/Ludwig/Wilson were up to.
So confident was she that she adopted two forgeries in her evidence to the TURC - one a letter from Corporate Affairs Commissioner Ray Neal and the other a purported memo to Ralph Blewitt.
Gillard perjured herself to the face of the Trade Union Royal Commission on the issue.
That could cost her 5 years of her life in gaol - but in the scheme of her exposures it's probably one of her lesser worries.
So back to the cover ups.
In August 2012 new evidence started to emerge about Gillard's role in The AWU Scandal.
On 3 August 2012 Ralph Blewitt spoke publicly about his and Gillard's joint criminal undertaking in the AWU Workplace Reform Association.
Blewitt had Harry Nowicki by his side. Harry was cashed up and motivated to get to the truth.
By the time Ralph spoke publicly, Harry had the FOI applications and State Archives requests firing off left right and centre.
You might recall Ms Gillard was a little too happy that the state records of WA were missing the contents of this file.
I can now reveal that the State Archives Office record - the empty file - isn't the only file the WA Government created as this incorporation bounced from the Commissioner to Slater and Gordon and ultimately to the Minister.
Here's another file's cover, first created on 24 June 1992 (originally with Office of State Corporate Affairs logos).
We have Laily Yassin and Will Morgan (both very senior executives in the WA Government) to thank for taking care of this file.
As the Gillard-effect started to hit federal court, Slater and Gordon, AWU and State Archives files, Laily and Will put this one in the safe.
It contains heaps of stuff.
This receipt shows you some of the level of detail!
And the documents inside are beautifully preserved - unlike some reputations in the near future.
And of course, there's much more.
