Gladys Berejiklian: The Tractor. The iPad. The Cover Up!

October 14, 2020

GLADYS BEREJIKLIAN’S political career is almost certainly over as the sordid details of her love-struck relationship with dodgy and now disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire become clearer (or murkier) by the day.

Her former flame is fronting the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) to answer questions about whether his behaviour while in parliament could be considered corrupt.

Berejiklian claims she has “tried to be as frank as possible” about her relationship with Daryl Maguire, while not being frank at all.  Although entitled to some degree of privacy in theory, she’s desperately clinging to semantics for her political survival.

It’s already been revealed that she met with two publicans with criminal records at the behest of Maguire, while Maguire himself suffered an unfortunate mishap where his iPhone and iPad were destroyed in a freak tractor incident – destroying potentially incriminating evidence.

To be fair it’s happened to us all at some point. Tractor. iPad. iPhone. Just an accident waiting to happen, really…

    Just in:

    Former Wagga Wagga MP Daryl Maguire admitted using his parliamentary office for private business, including receiving what counsel assisting ICAC says was “thousands of dollars in cash” in return for visas for Chinese nationals.

    Here’s a nice excuse:

    You could hear the Premier rustling papers and, in fact, you would almost have to say that she was bored with this absolute bore that was on the other side of the phone.”

    Looks like Daryl’s hot little cum dumpster was getting bored with him and his corrupt ways!

    Also from Gladys’s defender:

    “He also said a strong observation he made from tapped phone conversations played earlier this week was that Gladys Berejiklian was disinterested.”

    I think he means uninterested. Nevertheless, as premier, she should have been ‘interested” enough to ditch the fucker and report him to the police.

    It’s been runoured that the ipad and phone were spooked off the tractor when an African Swallow flying by dropped the coconut it was carrying (hat tip to some tweeter from early this morning)

    Wasn’t all this happening while Dastari was being hounded out of office for openly declaring money from a Chinese guy on his register?

    “Whenever I’m using an iPad on a tractor I always try to pull over to the side of the paddock.”

    That’s good advice. Especially when using an iPad and an iPhone simultaneously while driving a tractor. I mean, that’s just asking for trouble.

    Just how much Sooty and the Schoolyard Bullies are (w-a-y) out of touch (the Covid Pandemic does not change Elite thinking based on Trickle Down Economics and Robber Baron Philosophy)

    Prime Minister Scott Morrison says people who earn $180,000 aren’t ‘rich’

    Australian National University associate professor Ben Phillips told news.com.au that there was no doubt that any worker earning $180,000 was “doing pretty well.”

    “The average income for a worker is around $85,000. The median would be more like $60,000. If you’re earning $180,000 you’re in the top 4 per cent of incomes or thereabouts.

    “Household income is a little different. It’s more around $100,000 on average but the median would be lower.”

    Peta Credlin had an interesting segment last night.

    Andrews crew stepped out of the National cabinet meeting at 12.30 27 March.

    United Security CEO sent an urgent email at 12.36 to all staff to complete an online Covid course (10 minutes duration) by 2.30 PM and send certificate to him.

    United Security, not a preferred supplier gets the contract.

    Evidence was first contact was an 11.30 email. In fact there was a phone call at 10.30. So those who said the email was first contact were lying.

    I wonder if Coate will be interested to check on the calls made to that number, who had it and why?

    Looks like the Perfesser might have been telling porkies too.

    Victoria’s Department of Health has been asked to supply fresh documents to the hotel quarantine inquiry relating to questions over the accuracy of testimony provided by Chief Health Officer Brett Sutton.

    Professor Sutton told the inquiry in both a witness statement and in verbal testimony in September that he did not know private security companies were guarding quarantine hotels until he became aware of the COVID-19 outbreak at the Rydges on Swanston in late May.

    But several senior departmental sources say they were surprised at Professor Sutton’s evidence, and have suggested he knew much earlier. And now correspondence seen by The Age shows Professor Sutton knew in late March or early April that private security guards were the preferred model. That correspondence was not provided to the inquiry, despite its request for all relevant documents.

    The Department of Health and Human Services told The Age late on Thursday that it had received a recent request from the board of inquiry for relevant documents and is in the process of responding to the request, but would not comment further…

    Daryl Maguire doesn’t have a great deal of luck with technology and farm equipment.

    Following on from his recent admission that he dropped his iPad and his iPhone and they were run over by a tractor, today he revealed to the commission that he also dropped a USB key at his farm gate, which was then run over by another vehicle, but then by sheer happenstance he found it again a few days later.

    Queensland has the potential to draw all of its electricity from renewable sources in a 15-year transition away from fossil fuels that would generate almost 10,000 jobs, according to analysis commissioned by the Queensland Conservation Council.

    Almost 11,000 ongoing jobs would then operate and maintain a suite of energy sources either existing or proposed in the state, including wind and solar and farms, hydro plants and battery projects.

    The Victorian premier, Daniel Andrews, has condemned failures that allowed a mystery group of 17 New Zealanders to fly into the state on Friday, criticising the Australian Border Force for delays in providing vital passenger information and writing to Scott Morrison to express his disappointment.

    Seventeen New Zealanders who travelled to Sydney through the newly formed international travel bubble were allowed to fly to Melbourne airport late Friday afternoon, despite the state expressly excluding itself from the bubble arrangement.

    The group left the airport quickly after arriving and state authorities had no power to stop them. The location of the group is still unknown, though they are believed to be in metropolitan Melbourne.

    And if there is another “cluster” whose to blame?

    were allowed to fly to Melbourne airport late Friday afternoon, despite the state expressly excluding itself from the bubble arrangement.

    When asked today what will happen if more Kiwis fly in to Melbourne, Dan Andrews said: “Perhaps I didn’t explain myself well enough. They will be welcomed.”

    So the problem isn’t New Zealanders coming to Melbourne, it’s that Dan wasn’t given the opportunity to grant his royal assent.

    * deployed untrained people into a contagious workplace
    * neglected to perform safety audits
    * didn’t follow up reports of non conformance
    * allowed the virus to leak into the community
    * caused the state to shut down for months and months and months

    Well, you keep highlighting one state. They did what every other state did.

    They also did far more than the federal goivernment was planning to do. And far more than the feds ever did

    Sure, it initially got away. probably wouldn’t have been half as bad if the feds hadn’t kept pushing to open, and hadn’t underfunded aged care so much that the State had to send rare resources into them to stop it there too. Will see what happens after their non-existent bubble burst on the first bloody day

    Are you sure Victoria did exactly what every other state did? Can you guarantee that other states-
    * did not follow up reports of safety non conformance that were drawn to the attention of the premier and health official?
    * did not undertake safety audits of their sites?

    And… NSW always provided specific information about the locations of cases and warned people to be mindful. Victoria has only started to do this in the past couple of weeks.

    There are important differences in the programs, and that’s why Victoria is a health and economic basket case while other states are recovering and enjoying life

    since officials visited New South Wales, Andrews said both sides learned from each other but the biggest outcome was that NSW would be adopting Victoria’s IT system.

    I see the grubmint is OUTRAGED over some watches being handed out at Aus Post (as they should be)

    If only they cared even half as much about the massively worst rorts happening within their own ranks, or the massive damage their ideology has left in it’s wake

    but another sign that the Coalition is unhappy with the commission’s direction came when Liberal senator Amanda Stoker grilled officials in estimates about three-year-old musings on Twitter by the commission’s media officer, former journalist Kate Hannon. Shadow home affairs minister Kristina Keneally questioned why the Coalition was more concerned with a few old tweets than the 683 deaths that have occurred in aged care during the pandemic, and accused federal cabinet of “disdain” for the commission. She was shut down, but the contrast between the gravity of Rozen’s address and the childish partisan politics of the Morrison government is appalling.

    ABC news boss Gaven Morris told staff they were too focused on the interests of “inner city left-wing elites” and linked his concerns about editorial coverage to the national broadcaster’s ongoing funding from taxpayers.
    In remarks made during staff briefings last week Mr Morris warned it would not bode well for the ABC’s funding “if we’re seen to be representing inner city elite interests”, according to three people who were present.

    That sounds sensible.
