Today I read in my favourite newspaper the Sydney Daily Telegraph of the passing of Stanley Joseph Howard the elder sibling of former PM' Wee little John Howard.
According to the eulogies read at
Stanley J Howard's funeral , good old Stan was a successful Corporate Lawyer and Lover of Cricket. Maybe the fearful news of the ascending power of England's cricketers recently thrashing India; sent him over the edge.
Now for you lovers of pollies and corporate loophole larry's, it may come as a surprise to you that Big brother Stanley was not always a squeaky clean manipulator of the law, I was reminded of the post which I wrote back in 2006, when a list of 'Good old Stans 'nefarious activities were exposed. Read on.
BTW. Sydney Daily Telegraph take note. In the lotto results today there is a major cockup.
Numbers read, !3 31 40 2 25 35, supps, 20 & 35.. Can you spot the error?
The Australian Prime Ministers brother Stan Howard, will be
prosecuted for chopping down dozens of endangered trees.
Stan Howard who owns two adjoining properties in Bowral in the Southern Highlands, faces a jail term or a hefty fine if found guilty of knowingly giving the chop to the threatened species on his Aus$6.2 million property.
The caretaker of the property Rohan Corby was visited by a local Ranger after a tipoff, who discovered about 60 trees had been destroyed.
Stan Howard it seems was dobbed in by a woman neighbour who had waited years for permission to cut down a small number of trees on her
property she regarded a fire risk.
Rohan Corby stated that the work carried out by a contractor was to lessen fire and snake risk and control the Rabbit population.
Stan Howard told the ranger he thought the contractor knew that the work was legally carried out. 'This is not the case said the ranger' and the Australian Prime Minister's elder sibling was prosecuted and faces at least a year in the slammer or a Aus$110,000 Fine; or both. This is not the first time the brother of our Draft Dodging Chicken Hawk Prime Minister has landed in the poo. In 2000 National textiles collapsed under his chairmanship with debts exceeding Aus$29 million. The tax payers via the Fed Govt forked out Four million bucks in outstanding payments to 340 former employees.
Just another out sourcing job by greedy corporate pigs. It is more the pity we are unable to outsource Excess Useless and Uneconomical blood sucking politicians who allow their cronies to drain the public purse.
My dilemma at the polling booth is, that my wallet wants to vote Blue and my concience Red.
PS: I wonder if our little short arsed wimp of a PM will visit his big brudder in the slammer, would be quite amusing.
Shortly before the Sept 11 incident, a minder of JH was aked by an American Journo
"ER the name of your PM is Mr Hunt is it not"
"No mate " came the reply,"But you nearly had it right".
What a bummer that your country is doing this too. So I guess it's not just American corporations that are so greedy that they'll sell out their own people for a quick buck. :(
