Is Gillard in trouble?

Andrew Bolt is blogging about a coming bombshell for Julia Gillard:

On Monday, I?m tipping, a witness with a statutory declaration will come forward and implicate Julia Gillard directly in another scandal involving the misuse of union funds.

Gillard herself is not accused of any misbehaviour at all. I do not make that claim, and do not hold that belief. But her judgment – and that of at least one of her ministers – will come under severe question. She will seem compromised.

It could be the last straw for Gillard?s leadership.

At the moment I am not at liberty to reveal the contents of the stat dec before me. I suspect a friend of mine in the media will be authorised to release it first. I will let you know when and where.

And then he updates his post:

Michael Smith of 2UE has read out from this statutory declaration, drawn up by Bob Kernohan, the former president of the Australian Workers Union, in August last year. To honor my deal with the author, who will speak to Smith on Monday?s show, I believe, I will publish only those parts which Michael has already read out or paraphrased:


Ouch, this is going to hurt. There is plenty more on Andrew’s post.
