Gillard would have you believe:

1. She was approached by Blewitt and Wilson only after the advertisement of 6 March 1992 and after the WACC had rejected the (first) application by Blewitt and Wilson on the grounds that the applicant was an ineligible trade union. What was the date on which this approach to her by Blewitt and Wilson was made?
What was the date of this application, who filled it out, what was the name of the proposed association and who lodged the application and on what date? Was the only known advertisement for the one lodged for this application?;
2. She then helped fill out a further (or only?) application dated the 22 April 1992 by inserting the name of the proposed association as “The Australian Workers’ Union –Workplace Reform Association Inc.” Was there a further advertisement for this application? Were the parties relying on the now out of date advertisement of 6 March 1992? If Gillard came up with the name only then when filling out this application, how come this was the name used in the advertisement of 6 March 1992?
3. If the application dated the 22 April was the first application, then Gillard when assisting by filling out the application form with the proposed name, apparently did not advise Blewitt and Wilson that an advertisement would have to be placed first before lodging the application.
4. Nor apparently, if they then told her that an advertisement had already been placed, did she ask Blewitt and Wilson for a copy of the advertisement of 6 March 1992 to check that they were still within time and that the advertisement was correct (which it wasn’t).
5. If this was the first and only application it had to be lodged before the WACC could have and would have told Blewitt and Wilson that it was rejected on the grounds that it was a trade union;
6. yet, Gillard claims she was only approached after the application was completed and lodged by Blewiit and Wilson and only when the WACC had rejected the application. This does not align with the evidence that she filled out the name of the proposed association in the application form.

Column – Plibersek plays lethal politics with ebola

Column – Plibersek plays lethal politics with ebola.

Doctors Without Borders, for instance, say nine of its staff are already dead from Ebola. More than 230 health workers, in all, have died.

ADF members are placed at risk every time they are deployed to hot spots around the world … it is the nature of their job … but sending doctors and nurses to treat ebola places them at risk of infection from undiagnosed people in the streets of the areas where they work, and there is a chance of them bringing home the disease and infecting family and friends when they return.

Hell should freeze over before women take up frozen egg deal | Daily Telegraph Miranda Devine Blog

Hell should freeze over before women take up frozen egg deal | Daily Telegraph Miranda Devine Blog.

Any woman who thinks she can put off having a family should be made aware that being a parent is a twenty four hour a day, seven days a week job.

The older you are when you start that job the harder it will be to keep up the pace, which starts at the end of 9 straight months of carrying the baby until it is beg enough to survive outside the womb. No weekends or public holidays, no holidays, paid or unpaid.
