The Cat Empire
Looks like QLD ALP learned well from Rob Hulls.
a high-profile criminal lawyer
Surely the term “criminal lawyer” is a tautology?
More seriously, it seems pretty clear that the ALP has long ceased to be a political party devoted to serving the interests of the urban and rural working classes. It has now become little more than a patronage machine, devoted to looking after “maaaaates” in the inner city, tertiary credentialed, upper middle class.
Donate some cash, suck up to the correct (never right) power brokers, and a safe parliamentary seat or a judicial or senior bureaucratic appointment will leave the maaaates with comfortable taxpayer funded salaries and superannuation for life.
Remember “He who must be Obeid”? His type seems to proliferate in the ALP. Sadly, they are also becoming more common in the Liberal and National Parties as well.
In Victoria the magistrate who denied bail to Monica Smit is a former ALP member. Luisa Bazzani. She was a member of young labour at uni with Bill Shorten, worked on Michael Danny’s campaign. Ran for preselection against Steve Bracks in Williamstown and was a member of the group Lawyers for Labor. She was then appointed to the bench by Rob Hulls.
Unsurprising then that she wanted to silence a critic of Dan Andrews.
I grew up hearing glib sayings, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know,” … “Loyalty comes before ability.”
The other one I would hear a lot, “Now don’t you go working too hard and make the rest of us look bad!”
Many people ask what actually is the heart of Australian culture, and I’d say it’s two things: mateship, and a complete lack of work ethic. What’s happening in Queensland is as Australian as bacon and egg burgers with BBQ sauce.
Rob Hulls and Labor did this to the Vic judiciary and have reaped the benefits, I’m amazed that it’s taking the other Labor states so long do it too.
Rob Hulls has a strong Queensland connection, having worked as a Solicitor and Alderman in Qld and then as a Qld Labor Member of Federal Parliament.
Hence the vitriol heaped onto Tim Carmody, chief justice under Campbell Newman.
Look where Hulls ended up:
Circle completed. #theleftslongmarchthroughtheinstitutions
People starting to understand why there was no push-back by the legal fraternity against all this COVID nonsense over the last two years?
Loyalty over merit.
BATTLE OF THE BIASES: Hulls v Debus, who is the Left’s fave?
The Left’s favourite state Attorney-General Rob Hulls has not disappointed them again, appointing more judges who will appeal to their bias.
Iain Ross, a former ACTU official and former ALP moderate, joins the Supremes after a time on the County Court bench. His time at the ACTU was excluded from the Hulls press release explaining the appointments.
Supreme Court judge and occasional critic of both the DPP and the Herald Sun David Harper has been bumped upstairs to the Court of Appeal.
While one bloke reputed to be earning well in excess of a million dollars a year at the Bar will take a big fat pay cut in the form of Dr Clyde Croft.
Hulls’ defenders say his appointments have been solid and say that they compare favourably to some federal appointments. Lefty Bob Debus appointed his staffer Jacqueline Trad as a federal magistrate a record two months after she was admitted as a lawyer.
Trad has been accused of lightly sentencing Cronulla rioters of Lebanese descent….
Fat Tony … I was shocked and stunned that anybody has even said it out loud.
I’m hearing that down in Vik theyre even getting brand new lawyers to handle state prosecutions. Actually know this for fact first hand from a young idealist who is yet to be properly sworn in.
plenty of career prospects all the way up, it seems
It’s not the march through the institutions. It’s the rape, pillage and plunder of the institutions.
as long as they are global warming true believers
Well, it’s different when they do it.
