Commissioner Ian Cambridge’s diary notes from 1995 to 1996 have been leaked to The Australian. The timing of the leak is only a matter of days after I had posted two stories on his criminal conduct and attacking his honesty and integrity. I have no doubt Cambridge has leaked the diary notes himself in an attempt to protect his reputation and credibility and conceal his own crimes that I have written about in the posts. There is no other logical reason for him to have leaked the diary notes.
The diary notes are Cambridge’s protection and power and there is only one place the leak would have come from and that is Cambridge himself because diary notes are something you do not give to anyone especially if they have evidence of criminal conduct of others.
Cambridge had 17 years to leak the notes but did not. The AWU scandal has been reported on and off substantially since last year yet he has only leaked them a few days after I started my attack on his conduct and credibility as well as his crimes.
But Cambridge is caught between a rock and a hard place. Like the rest of the country he is watching union and labor party corruption starting to crumble around him, but more on that later in the post. Then I pulled out the sledge-hammer and started to go to town on him. Firstly writing about his criminal conduct while he was a commissioner at the NSW Industrial Relations Commission and then dissecting his affidavit in the AWU Scandal and showing the holes in that and also showing his call for a Royal Commission to be the bad joke that it was and nothing but a lie.
Ian Cambridge has taken a huge risk and inflamed the matter that could blow up in his face and he would only do that to protect himself. This site is the only place that has been outing him for the corrupt person that he is.
I did a post on October the 14th titled “Julia Gillard and Bruce Wilson AWU fraud investigation gathers pace. At the end of that post I wrote “I have been sitting on some information and will start writing about it in the next week or two. But here is a question for you. In 1996 Ian Cambridge wrote to the Federal Labor Government asking for a royal commission into the Gillard / Wilson / AWU fraud. Not in a million years were they ever going to have a royal commission given the Labor Party are an extension of the union movement and Cambridge would have known this. So why did he write to them seeking a royal commission? That first came to my attention in 2006 and it hit me straight away what Cambridge was up to.” (Click here to read the post)
Cambridge knows who I am and he knows the evidence I have on him. He would have been made aware of what I wrote and started to worry.
Then on the 4th of November I did a post titled “The Julia Gillard, Ian Cambridge and Shane Dowling connection.” where I provided direct evidence of his criminal conduct. (Click here to read the post) I flagged at the end of that post that I would do another which is still in the pipeline but I followed up on the 11th November with the post titled ”Ian Cambridge and Bill Ludwig covered up the 1996 AWU fraud case which helped Julia Gillard” (Click here to read the post)
Wednesday’s stories in The Australian
There were a number of stories in The Australian on Wednesday (14/11/12) about the same thing. The key part was Wayne Hem a former AWU employee said he was given $5000 by Bruce Wilson to deposit into Julia Gillard’s bank account. This was supported by notes in Ian Cambridge’s diary notes. This would not have been a story if Ian Cambridge had not leaked his notes as it is only hearsay and would have left The Australian wide open for a potential law suit.
Wayne Hem says he also deposited other cheques for Bruce Wilson. Mr Hems also says that Cambridge and the AWU had him sign a statutory declaration in 1996 about his evidence which seems to have gone into a black hole and never seen again. I think Cambridge just played Mr Hem for a fool and was making out that the AWU was doing something about the fraud so Mr Hem did not go to the police or media.
Ian Cambridge refuses to answer any questions but he did confirm the diary notes are his. This also tells me he leaked the notes himself because if he did not confirm it The Australian quite possibly would not have run the stories as they could have been forgeries.
It says in The Australian that Wayne Hem signed a statutory declaration last Sunday (11/11/12) and questions were sent to the Prime Minister on the Monday. They seemed to have moved hard and fast last Sunday which is strange given The Australian says they had been dealing with Mr Hems for a fortnight. Maybe the post I did last Sunday had something to do with it and maybe that is when the diary notes were leaked. Who knows, but it is strange.
Why Cambridge has good reason to be extremely worried
The days of massive protection and cover-ups for union and Labor Party criminals is coming to an end and Cambridge is watching it unravel before his eyes like the rest of us. The difference being is that Cambridge has plenty to hide and would be very worried.
Cambridge is sitting back and watching a former union and Labor Party heavy weight like Michael Williamson face criminal charges and Craig Thomson is in a lot of trouble even though there was a massive attempt to cover it up by the Labor Party machine. In NSW former Labor politicians are under investigation at the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). No one is safe anymore. This would unsettle any union person with plenty to hide like Cambridge.
He is watching people involved in the AWU scandal getting trashed in the media for their role in the cover-up and people coming forward like Ralph Blewitt with evidence.
He is also watching the heat put on Julia Gillard for the AWU fraud and her clumsy handling of it. Then I put the blowtorch on Cambridge and he would have said to himself it is time to protect myself and stuff everyone else.
Cambridge could and would not respond directly to my allegations but by leaking his notes he has managed to get some positive media which he would be hoping would negate anything I write about him and stop other media picking up on what I have written.
People talking up Cambridge’s honesty and integrity
Some people are talking up Ian Cambridge as being an honest and ethical person. That will come back to bite them. Anyone who has followed the AWU scandal closely knows Cambridge took a bribe and shut his mouth when it counted.
Robert McClelland for example has been in the media saying what an honest and great guy Cambridge is. Mr McClelland was Ian Cambridge’s lawyer in 1996 so is not impartial. And it is worth noting that McClelland only last year was helping Julia Gillard cover-up the AWU scandal by appointing Bernard Murphy as a Federal Court Judge. I did a post in October last year titled “Julia Gillard appoints Bernard Murphy, her partner in crime from Slater and Gordon Lawyers, as a Federal Court of Australia judge.” (Click here to read the post) McClelland will play on either side on any given day depending on what is best for him.
I think the above is important because besides Bruce Wilson and probably Julia Gillard, Cambridge is the one who would have the best knowledge of what happened and where all the evidence is. And by leaking his notes he has cracked. The above is also important as some people would think that by leaking his diary notes Cambridge is trying to do the right thing and have justice done. Well that is the wrong thing to think. Cambridge is a criminal on the run and has leaked his diary notes to try to take the heat off himself. The heat that I have put on him and will continue to do so.
When did Cambridge take his diary notes to the police? He didn’t. That says it all in relation to his honesty.
