This 10 minutes with Bob Kernohan was recorded yesterday, shortly after my last chat with Ralph – Michael Smith News.

Sounds like it could be starting, however it won’t be over until those grubs who organised the Bob Kernohan bashing are doing some quality time at Her Majesty’s pleasure.
As for the coment about the posibility of our nation becoming the laughing stock of this planet, I fear it already is. There will be winners, a whole nation of them. There will be losers, and good riddance to them.

@extreme centrist
you are very wrong. This is a story with a great ending
a man got bashed and spent 17 years pursuing justice
another man left his job to pursue the truth because he had to do it
they gathered around them many far flung like minded people, whose faces they had not in many cases seen, but whose brains and hearts were good, and they formed a group who saw the merit of the task.
The complaint was made with the relevant documents, and this very large group of people continued to support in any way they could.
Now, after all these years, the lone voice has thousands of voices to support him, and the police and government are listening closely.
So, no matter what happens, everybody in this story is a winner. Except the perps. And thats the great ending.

Listened to your conversation with Bob, its hard to know what to say at this moment. How this amazing story came out, what happened to Bob on this journey, an innocent person just wanting to do the right thing by his workers within the Union, offerred a job, a bribe in other words and couldnt do it. True grit. This story should be told, and I’m sure there is someone out there with experience and most of all integrity to tell it on all of your behalf. I can hear the emotion and pressure in Bob’s voice, all any of us can do is give you a mental big hug, if you know what I mean. Just nurture yourself Bob, have a good rest, try and keep calm, its ok to be emotional thats a good thing. Take care, good things are happening.

Hi Michael,

I’ve often wondered why no one in the Canberra press gallery has asked our PM about Bob’s beating and death threats.They don’t care!! They simply don’t care!!!

We’ve all watched your interviews with Bob and and listened to yet another
emotionally charged conversation with him today, and let’s face it, we know the caucus
are all over your web site along with the press gallery, so when these awful people hear
Bob’s story why aren’t the labor politicians looking after this worker, or why aren’t the
Canberra journalists using the power of the pen to voice their outrage over this injustice
to Bob??

Because they don’t feel the outrage that’s why.If I ever meet anyone of these
individuals I will tell them that they are cowards .How dare these people from the Labor
party or the press gallery even think that they earn their weekly income.They’re not doing an honest day’s work for an honest day’s pay, they are the lowest of the low.They make my blood boil.

Ralph needs to understand that most people, and I really mean most people,
truly appreciate a person who owns up to past deeds that are wrong and do their best to right them.This is a fantastic opportunity for Ralph and I hope his friendship with Bob
helps him, and let’s face it, if Bob’s okay with Ralph then I’m okay with Ralph too.
Take care everyone and let’s start to enjoy the ride for once.

Bob Kernohan-fancy a 66 year old “darlo” boy like myself sobbing as I listened to your audio message.
This country and the law of the land is now at a pivotal point where once the police investigations are completed and the suspects are charged justice must be done in the courts and although they can never undo the beating you received from the three thugs watched by an accomplice driving the car hopefully (and speaking from experience it will be difficult) the remainder of your days will be blissful, surrounded my your family, friends and we bloggers who support you 100%.
God bless you Bob.

Oath at Eureka: ‘We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties’ . Thank you Bob and others for your bravery. It’s so hard to stand up when so many others look the other way. I liked the Mark Twain quote.

You know we can all read, and have, about AWU fraud. But actually putting a picture and voice to the the consequences of these grubs actions, really makes me feel part of this journey. The nerves, stress, conviction, anger, happiness, hope…its been a rollercoaster for all of us. Hearing Bob, Ralph and Michaels voices helps me get the gravity so much more, and its not me who lived through it. Bob, good luck and thanks, you deserve this, jen

The cruel actions of people without consciences can permanently damage the emotional well being of others. They must be held to account. They are ruining the lives of too many people. They stole 17 years off this man. They had no right to do that.

Good morning Michael,I have just listened to your chat with Bob. This man has suffered so much at the hands of the Awu and members of parliament. He has suffered for a very long time. I heard his emotion this morning and I too became emotional knowing he has carried the can for so long without any help. Thank you Michael for letting of us all see what is going on around us. I have been following this web site because I read about how you were prevented from telling the truth and resigned from your job and career. Both of you are truly respected. I have learnt so much from this web site. Not only about Labor and the unions but of the mis treatment of the boys who had served in Vietnam. I truly hope that justice will be done. I think that Ralph is also a hero by coming forward to set the record straight. I do think that someone should also step in to to check their health as to me this whole thing is wearing them down not only emotionally but physically. Mind you, just reading about all this is stressing many of us out too, but also giving us hope to get this country going again with pride.

Bob, the emotion and sheer anguish in your voice is always so very compelling. I can’t even begin to understand how frustating and demoralising it must have been for you over these past 18 years.

That the main stream media have turned a blind eye to your story is a disgrace to them all.

Any victory will indeed be for all Australians, but particularly so for Ralph & Michael and especially yourself.

You have my undying gratitude.

Even though they may say that they didn’t do anything wrong, those who knew what happened to Bob and said nothing about it, or actively covered it up are just as guilty as the rotten mongrels who did the violence. That means you, Shorten. You are no man, you’re a vicious coward.

Good on you, Bob. And you, Michael, and Ralph.
