Governor-General David Hurley colludes with Scott Morrison to steal $18 million from taxpayers

Scott Morrison was exposed on Thursday (7/4/2022) as being the key decision maker, in collusion with Governor-General David Hurley, for giving $18 million of taxpayer’s money to a charity, The Australian Future Leaders Foundation Limited, that doesn’t exist except on paper.

What makes this matter so scandalous is because we have 2 witnesses that have identified Scott Morrison as being personally involved and the decision maker to hand over the $18 million and one of those witnesses is Governor-General David Hurley. Normally Scott Morrison would duck and weave and blame others, but he won’t be able to get out of it this time unless he blames the Governor-General David Hurley and then we probably have a constitutional crisis in the making if we are not already there.

Scams like this have been a common theme with Scott Morrison and his government with one example being the awarding of contracts in 2019 totalling $423 million to the company Paladin who had virtually no money or assets and their head office was at a beach shack on Kangaroo Island.

The Australian Future Leaders Foundation Limited is reported to “have no office, website or staff, apart from three directors” and:

Several sources have told the ABC that its executive officer and director, Chris Hartley, boasted that he secured federal support more than a year before it was publicly announced. Promotional brochures published early last year, and seen by the ABC, claimed vice-regal and government endorsement of the program.

Months after Mr Hartley declared the program had government support, he registered the Australian Future Leaders Foundation Limited as a charity in April 2021, with an official launch held at Admiralty House in May.

And the government refuses to provide answers about charity listing. (Click here to read more)

Then on Friday (8/4/22) it was reported: The Governor-General David Hurley personally lobbied Prime Minister Scott Morrison about a leadership program that was later allocated more than $18 million in federal funding.

For the past two years Mr Hartley, who is one of the three directors of the foundation and its secretary, gathered support for his leadership program and successfully asked the Governor-General to pitch the proposal to the Prime Minister.

The ABC has seen correspondence in which Mr Hartley boasted that the Governor-General had given a PowerPoint presentation to Mr Morrison in late 2020.

A spokesperson for the Governor-General confirmed there had been “several conversations” between him and Mr Morrison dating back to 2020. (Click here to read more)

Update 11/4/22: I have published the below video on YouTube raising some more points regarding the issues outlined in this article.

Since when has it been the role of the Governor-General to promote to the Prime Minister a charity that is not registered, does not have an office, does not have a website or staff? The Governor-General should be called before a Senate estimates hearing to explain his conduct.

David Hurley, Scott Morrison (both seated) and, the man who could see them both put in jail if he wins the 2022 election and introduces a Federal ICAC, Anthony Albanese (standing).

The Auspol Bulletin Facebook page published an article on Friday (8/4/2022) claiming the three directors of The Australian Future Leaders Foundation Limited are also directors of a similar foundation, and that Overton Creative Consulting P/L is the company behind them:

Julie and Andrew Overton are listed as the other directors of the foundation whose ABN is 28 649 403 654 along with Chris Ian James Hartley. What is really curious about this trio is that we discovered that they are ALL directors of yet another ‘limited by guarantee’ company which is also listed as a not-for-profit.

The King’s Cup Organising Committee Ltd with ABN 54 631 440 741 was registered on 5th February 2019. It has the exact same 3 directors! The Overtons and Dr Hartley! Julie Overton is listed as the Secretary.

There is clearly much more to this story than meets the eye. (Click here to read more)

On the face of it, it looks like a standard fraud and theft of taxpayer’s money being funnelled through a charity. Where have we seen that before? I wrote an article on the 13th of February titled “Scott Morrison’s Hillsong mate Leigh Coleman, an alleged fraudster and crook, set to break $100 million in government contracts” which starts off:

“In 2020 I wrote that Scott Morrison’s Hillsong mate Leigh Coleman was awarded $43 million in government contracts, and I can report that the amount for government contracts now stands at $94.9 million since 2016. Scott Morrison and others in government have accelerated the fraud and theft of government assets before they are kicked out of government.”

Leigh Coleman uses a company called ServeGate Australia which is also “a registered tax-free charity and its operations are suspicious to say the least where they don’t seem to do much work except take a percentage off the top and then sub-contract the real work out to other companies.” (Click here to read the article)

Below is a quick video on the Paladin scam titled “Peter Dutton claims he knows nothing about the contract awarded to beach shack security firm Paladin”. (Click here to read more)

The irony of this scandal is that we know about it because it was in the 2022 Federal Budget that was delivered last week, and the budget was meant to help Morrison and the Government win the election due in May. But now the budget is looking like it could put Prime Minister Scott Morrison and the Governor-General David Hurley in jail if Labor win power at the next election and introduce a Federal ICAC.

Jail time for Scott Morrison is even more of a possibility when you look at my last article “How much did Scott Morrison personally make from Australia’s failed submarine deal given he made sure his mates Peter Costello and David Gazard made $millions?“.

Some people on social media are incorrectly claiming that Governor-General David Hurley and his wife are Pentecostals. They are not Pentecostals, and the confusion seems to have come from an article on Crikey where they talk about Governor-General rubber-stamping an award for Margaret Court who is the founder and pastor of a Pentecostal church.

This matter won’t be going away anytime soon and will likely become an election issue.

  1. Oh he’s a crafty little operator isn’t he ??? Old mate Scotty from marketing is just on top of everything corrupt. He is as Connie said … a shadowy figure who is not fit for office because of his compulsive lying and his jobs and money for mates. Scott has forever changed the way Australia functions. He has changed the country for the worse and made Australia a toilet populated by a polarized and divided community that hates each other because of inequality and the lack of opportunity that was once the cornerstone of our civilization. We can only hope that Australians vote accordingly this election. Bring on the independents and bring on the end of this Coalition of the Corrupt.

  2. As Morrison is on his way to the GG right now it would be interesting if they discuss this “in private” now that it has become public……..because it could get legs…….hopefully. Just another rort with Morrison’s prints all over it. I wonder how many more there are we DON’T know about?

  3. Just watch how Albanese blinks, vote independent or Greens Labor is no better than the Liberals. With the Shoppers Union running the show Labor will be as weak as water, Morrison will never go to jail. Murdoch media will also run the Albanese Government.

    • Yeah, but at the end of the day, you have to list your preferences. Neither the Greens or independents can form government in Australia, so we’re saddled with one of the two majors.

      • Can someone explain to me in a short but clear way, why we can’t have a more logical, fair and true democratic political party and government system, (meaning more than two parties that can win elections and then form a coalition) just like in so many more “sophisticated and modern” countries?

        This two party system doesn’t work anymore in the 21st century, and I even wonder if it ever has! It doesn’t work in the UK, the US, NZ and it sure as hell doesn’t work in our country!!

  4. I am not surprised about this and the GG. Have mentioned numerous times about his missing in action to others; raised eyebrows is the response. What a mess these morons have made for this country. Well done for bringing this to our attention for it will take decades to clean the mess, if ever. What a smell is coming down the line.

The oath of Office, I shall, Lie, Steal, and lose my Memory at regular intervals, I will not Answer Questions, and shall be of a different Context, I will to the Best of my ability, be Faithful to the Brand, Cover up, the Transgressions of the Party, I will, Serve and Protect, all those who Stand with me in
    Denial, I will be my Duty, to Conceal all wrongdoing, This I do so swear. Done in the name of Dishonour for the Corporate Body Politic:

  6. I worked at Government House in Canberra for 16 years as a maintenance officer, between 1998-2014 WHS breaches were more common than the common cold especially when working at heights without Safety equipment, and told by Management that they could not afford to spend monies on WHS SAFETY EQUIPMENT
    Management certainly found monies in 2012 to send plenty of Managers to London with the GG for the Olympic Games. This is only 1 of the many Criminal Activities that went on behind the Iron Gates of Government House in Canberra, by Official Secretaries and Senior Management.

  7. Corruption can be defined as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain.

    Corruption erodes trust, weakens democracy, hampers economic development and further exacerbates inequality, poverty, social division and the environmental crisis.

    Exposing corruption and holding the corrupt to account can only happen if we understand the way corruption works and the systems that enable it.

    Corruption can take many forms, and can include behaviours like:

    * politicians misusing public money or granting public jobs or contracts to their sponsors, friends and families,
    *public servants demanding or taking money or favours in exchange for services,
    * corporations bribing officials to get lucrative deals

    In 2012, Australia (Labor) was 7th in 180 countries on a country standing with a score of 85/100 and now …in 2021 Australia (Liberal National) is18th in 180 countries on a country standing with a score of 73/100

    SAYS IT ALL REALLY – IMHO, the morals, ethics and integrity of our current federal government are fashioned and aligned to that of a bunch of corrupt criminal psychopaths; as they lie, cheat, create unwarranted hardship and torture of humans (even their own citizens), disrespect and endanger elders, “sleep” with corporations, abuse women’s sensibilities and rights, pervert the pub constitution of this country … and more.

    Unfortunately, my MP is a member of the ruling LNP coalition and IMHO, he is a lazy, incompetent, disrespectful warmonger that has his eye on the top job.

    We must rid this country of these diseased villains that are tearing our community and social fabric apart.

    This is MHO.

  8. It would be interesting to know if Hurley receives a military pension, plus a pension he was entitled to as Governor of NSW plus his salary as GG. And eventually all 3 pensions. Now that would be a nice little arrangement.

  9. It’s ok for Kangaroo Court of Australia to report all these corruptions but what are they really doing about them? How could these scumbags get accountability abd punishment for their crimes committed.

  10. Yes Marie, you have to have great respect for KCA but where are all the Journalists’ follow-ups on the corruptions exposed by his investigations. There are none! They try to keep favour with these policy crimes.
    We desperately need an ICAC, but both sides of the policy spectrum have voted against it. You have to ask why? We need a citizens’ referendum or a petition signed by many thousands to get some action.
