RALPH BLOWS IT: PM’s accuser admits using Balinese sex workers

RalphblewittsleazeRemember when VEXNEWS revealed the PM’s embezzlement conspiracy theory accuser Ralph Blewitt was a sleazy sex-predator preying on young Asian women? Now, in attempt to clear his name, he’s gone and admitted some dirty deeds indeed.

The Prime Minister’s principal accuser in the increasingly silly embezzlement conspiracy theory promoted by her political foes, self-admitted fraudster and former union leftist Ralph Blewitt has admitted making use of sex workers in south-east Asia. On boned Fairfax Radio schlock-jock Michael Smith’s website, he admits:

Look I’m no saint and I’ll admit that I used the services of women of the oldest profession in the world on a few occasions in Bali a few years ago..

In a curious and barely literate piece that contained multiple denunciations of VEXNEWS as an “ALP DIRT UNIT” (we were once attacked as a “Liberal blogger” biased to one part of the NSW Liberal Right in the rarely wrong Australian newspaper and described by New Matilda’s Ben Eltham on Twitter just this very day as a successful ‘right-of-centre’ online voice), Blewitt belatedly half-denied a VEXNEWS report – rehashed the other day in Fairfax newspapers – that he was a sleazy sex-predator operating in Asia.

We’re not an ALP dirt unit, or a Liberal blogger or ‘right-of-centre’, as it happens, we just call it how we see it.

Smith seems to realise the appalling and embarrassing nature of what Blewitt wrote:

If I was a spin-doctor advising Ralph Blewitt I would probably advise against publishing the sort of statement that Ralph sent me overnight (and he’s asked me to publish it on this website). I’d say you are just giving oxygen to your detractors.

Good advice for the dirty old man but he’s chosen to ignore it so we’ll play.

We stand by all elements of our story, which relied entirely on other admissions and comments made by Blewitt on his Facebook page which had been obtained by the VEXNEWS Investigations Unit.

Click here to read it in all its glory. We are indeed first with the worst.

Despite a lengthy rant published by Smith, Blewitt fails to deal with, deny or explain the rather odious misogyny on display on his Facebook page at the time. We retained screen grabs of his commentary and pics so readers can judge for themselves.

Smith, a shrill and often self-defeating conservative keen to promote Blewitt’s claim the PM was an embezzler of some unspecified kind, claims:

I am aware of the Vex News article about Ralph Blewitt and other things that people point to in his past. As always those sorts of rumour and half-truth related gossipy pieces are put together by people who scurry away when the light shines on them. They hide. I see that stuff as being in the black hat category.

There was no rumour or half-truth in our reporting. It relied on original documents, that were actually publicly displayed, prior to VEXNEWS bringing them to the attention of a disgusted public.

Michael Smith then asserts we – of all people – “scurry away when the light shines on them.” Hardly. We have been publishing for many years, on VEX since 2008, and take on all comers, angry leftists, vengeful subjects of investigation, you name it, we’ve stared them down, speaking truth to their power. The only scurrying around we do is chasing my hounds Ronnie (named after the great President) and Nancy-Jane (named after his two formidable wives) around local parks.

Suggesting we are an ALP dirt unit when we’ve critically reported on many Labor operatives over the years is a silly and uninformed attack that no-one familiar with VEXNEWS greatest hits could accept as anything other than the deluded rants of bitter and twisted clueless old men whose comprehension of new media leads them to engage in vile hate-speech against women on Facebook and wonder why they get pinged for it.

When we smell a leftist crook, like Ralph Blewitt, we’re going to call them out. The fact that he’s making up spectacular half-claims against a Labor PM doesn’t excuse the deceit.

In the claims coming out of the alleged fraud by long-purged AWU leftists, we draw a distinction between leftist Blewitt, a self-admitted criminal and apparent misogynist, and former AWU moderate and freedom fighter Bob Kernohan, someone I once knew through my Dad and always liked. Bob Kernohan was no leftist, indeed he was actively seeking the demise of the odious extreme-left elements that took over the AWU in Victoria, headed by Bruce Wilson, Blewitt’s slimy mate.

Kernohan has had a genuine beef about what Wilson did. Fair enough. Blaming his girlfriend at the time for it has always seemed an unreasonable stretch to me and I doubt anyone would have even thought of such an outrageous idea unless that then girlfriend became the Prime Minister of Australia. No-one disputes that’s why this is arising now. It’s all as limp as Ralph Blewitt before he reaches for his little blue pills.

We love a bit of scandal here. But we’re tired of the presumption of criminal dealings in our political leaders – Tony Abbott engages in bribery some claim – the PM is an embezzler/fraudster/whatever – we find it all rather hard to believe without clear evidence. And despite all the huffing and puffing of blow-hard sex-predators and losers, there’s been precious little evidence of any such thing.

Watergate has much to answer for. The endless quest to find smoking guns is not real journalism. Around here, as an equal opportunity slagger, we’re just interested in the truth and Ralph Blewitt’s candour about having his wicked way with undoubtedly youthful Balinese sex workers doesn’t make him less of sleazy mutt with fleas. If he has evidence of the PM’s involvement in dastardly deeds, he should present it. If he can’t or won’t, he should slither back under the slimy predatory sex-tourist rock from whence he came.

  1. So because Blewitt is creepy, Gillard has nothing to answer for?

    Posted by Alex | November 5, 2012, 18:03
  2. No, Alex, because Blewitt is unable to produce any tangible evidence that the Prime Minister has committed an offence of any kind, just make assertions and give dodgy cheques to JBitch to wave around in parliament. That is, when he’s not getting in a circle jerk with other misogynists that are jealous of the success of a powerful and talented woman, or screwing the pants off young Asian girls. Doing all that,therefore, makes him a creep.

  3. So Because Blewitt admits to sleeping with hookers Gillard is as white as snow?

    That’s like saying Because Thompson paid for hookers McTernan didn’t play with young boys.

    Try reading the documents on Mikes site, there is evidence that Gillard committed fraud and covered it up.

    You are using the same excuse as Scientology’s tactic “Fair Game” where anyone making a comment are judged to be a threat & can be punished and harassed using any and all means possible.

    And to A Nonny Mouse
    1. have the guts to put your name to your comments.
    2. The only talent Gillard has is screwing married men and lying & doing so makes her a [deleted] and a liar.

  4. VEXNEWS is a low-life predators who trawls for vulnerable people to listen to their conspiracy theory. Questions have been asked of the Prime Minister, this need to be fully and publicly investigated, it not need some Back door creepy wantabe jerno writing crap.

  5. At least the bloke is honest about his past… something no one can say about Gillard with a straight face. I’d trust the word of a Vietnam vet over a union lawyer any day of the week.

  6. @ A Nonny Mouse – way to shoot yourself in the foot there, champ. Referring to the Deputy Leader of the Opposition as “JBitch” is pure small dick syndrome stuff. Sounds like you are the misogynist, you are the one scared of the success of a powerful and talented woman… pathetic little man.

  7. As a former member of the Australian Infantry I have the greatest respect for Ralph Blewitt for displaying the courage to come forward for no reward. Also having been involved in Industrial Relations during my working life I knew many of the now politicians and more importantly some of those that disgraced themselves in the NSW parliament. I had the greatest respect for my main adversary the late Frank Belan AO who did not accept “GIFTS” and had the welfare of his members at heart , we did not often agree over the methods we both employed but he was genuine not like a host of others. Ralph Blewitt IS courageous eposing himself to the might of the ALPs mud slingers.

  8. I was relieved to hear from Ralph et al as it justified my natural distrust of Ms Gillard. She is not the sort of person you can rely on. I feel real compassion for the people who beleive in the labor movement. Their betrayal has been complete.

  9. Stop burying your head in the sand. There is real evidence of fraud & corruption perpetrated by a person in government that holds the highest position of office in the country. This position should only be held by someone with integrity which sadly, the current person does not have. By the way I am a female & I believe this female has done us all a disservice. We need a stable government without any of the type of crap that surrounds this government. Where there is smoke there is fire.

  10. A truly pathetic article, why don’t you focus on the leader who blatantly lies to her electorate and won’t answer very straight forward questions about her past activities to the people of Australia, we deserve better than the obfuscation. If you can’t see the case for fraud, challenge it and explain why there is no case, pull the relevant details apart and show us why there is no fraud. If you can’t, maybe you should write fiction, your article reflects that you have an imagination, but obviously you lack substance and character for writing political articles.

    What goes on in your head to write such trash?? Since you attack this fellow about him admitting to using an asian sex worker, you must write some excellent stuff about Thompson and the credit card that was used in brothels, do you?? Or no, do you only write what you see Mr Blinkers?

  14. Andrew, there is no doubt that Gillard is guilty of lies and deceiption in the AWU fraud. I predict that she will be removed from office in disgrace. I believe that people in the ALP want to continue the cover up, because believe me the fallout will claim people like Bill Shorten, Bill ludwig, his son Joe Ludwig, Conroy, Roxon, Howes, David Feeney etc.etc. People who say that they were not around at the time, believe me is no excuse.

  18. I hope you all have good lawyers. It has not been proven that Thomson used prostitutes and it is yet to be proven that he used the HSU card on them. I hope Vex has all your details because a little letter in the mail will be coming your way. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA..I can’t wait for these trolls that do not know the whole story about Thomson crawl back in their box. I bet they will cry out and say..I did not mean it, I thought he was guilty but had no evidence to back up what I wrote..hahahahahha.Well Hope you have a big bank account.

  25. As conveyancer for the Fitzroy house bought in the name of Blewitt, did JG sight further cheques (which would been drawn on the secret AWU account?) which she knew to be fraudulently applied to the land purchase?

    Liar liar, Julia. You’re not fit to be the PM.

  32. So what if this guy has used the services of professional ladies.. If he has solid evidence or eveidence can be gathered to confirm his claims then give him a chance to prove it. If the claims are true then Gillard should face the consequences.

  34. Andrew,

    If there is nothing to it, then why does Fair Work Commissioner Ian Cambridge, demand a Royal Commission? He was appointed by Julia Gillard. Why doesn’t she simply deny that Bruce Wilson put $5000 in her bank account? Simple.
    Who is responsible Andrew for the missing $600,000? No one? Why isn’t Wilson being forced to say what happened?

    VEXNEWS: 1) It appears Ian Cambridge now doubts his own story, as per The Australian’s story today. 2) I thought she did yesterday. 3) If you believe Ralph Blewitt, and we are very sceptical, Bruce Wilson did the dirty deed. Blewitt hasn’t said anything that establishes the PM’s guilt in embezzlement, other than by association with Wilson. Deeming girlfriends guilty of the actions of their boyfriends twenty years ago is a legal notion not even operative in Saudi Arabia, we don’t think it will catch on here. 4) How would you propose Wilson be “forced” to say what happened?

  37. Vex New always taks a pro-Gillard stand. Why is that? Also, remember the man you are criticising is a former friend and client of Gillard’s, so what does this say about her?

    Posted by Lozza | November 15, 2012, 19:29
  38. So, Ralph Blewitt is a dirty old man for using a sex worker? if memory serves me correctly it was the left-wing that insisted on sex worker instead of prostitute. Julia Gillard said ALL married women were prostitutes, therefore ALL married men plus the single men who seduce married women are dirty old men. Doesn’t leave many who aren’t aside from homosexuals.

  39. Not sure if most of you actually read the article…let me summarise for you.

    “Sleazy ex-unionist & confessed fraudster makes allegations of criminal activity against the Prime Minster with no evidence. Unless there is some real evidence let’s move on to real stories.”

    I see no pro-PM commentary in here.

  40. Shame on the writer of this article: it is not a silly conspiracy theory it is a FACT: The problem with the likes of you and the ALP is that you are NOT PREPARED TO ACCEPT THE TRUTH.in fact you do not even know what TRUTH means. Your articles in favour of the PM and the ALP just makes me LAUGH. JUST FOR ONCE, REALLY < search your soul, look deeply at yourself and you will see that you have now began believing a LIE to be true, just like the PM (FULL of LIES and deception) "there will be no carbon tax…." "I did nothing wrong"- how can the the PM who holds the HIGHEST OFFICE in the LAND gives answers like this. We all know that the PM studied communism and fabiansm and now uses the fancy word SOCIALISM which all means the same thing and one of the teachings from this is that a LIE told many times becomes a fact to the GULLIBLE people. so mr writer…YOU are GULLIBLE and you are doing SOCIETY A VERY BIG disfavour by publish LIES and hoping that it will become facts.

  41. Mr T “At least the bloke is honest about his past” …. while banging a younger Balinese arse … some counties today call that sex tourism , punishable by law … yep , it tells us all about what type of dipshit he really is . Military service (did he just “serve” for trusting access to the young ones in unprivileged nations ?) or not . Not someone I would ever believe or trust . About anything . Ever .

  42. To “The Mechanic” I could not help but notice that you would not believe or trust someone because of their sordid past… Is this based on what you are told, what you assume or what you look into? I hope you do not believe and trust in Julia Gillard and make yourself a hypocrite in the process. If you do not want to believe that Gillard played a role and benefited in the AWU Scandal then ask just one question… Why was it that her first acts upon being made PM were to promote and give benefits to all of those who were present or involved during the AWU scandal Nicola Roxon is a great example Gillard even managed to kill two birds with one stone by replacing Rob Mclelland who would not toe the company line.

  46. Why are there a lot of ex servicemen making comments. It couldn’t be because many of you were involved with Blewitt over facebook. Perhaps all of you like Smith resent Islam. Smith seems to believe the military are fighting a war against Islam over in Afghanistan. Why did all this smear appear so soon after she became PM. It’s for political reasons no other. Started by Bolt in the Australian and repeated. He lied about having a fiance and degraded her as just being a belly dancer and not her real career. Bolt seems to believe that creative women are all witches. I just saw a nude lifelike naked Ms Gillard in bed with another man which i assume some were of Pickerings a dirty sixty year old man. You all seem to believe nothing is wrong with an older man playing around with young women just as you do a sixty year old deplicting our PM nude. Your all forgetting that Rudd brought these men in and most of them had accepted what happened to Ms. Gillard over 17 years ago and admitted she was cleared of any wrong doing, yet nothing was said then was there ???? It’s all being done for political gain. News Ltd., Bolt, Pickering, Smith are very heavily involved in the Liberal Party. There is an article that quotes Blewitt of saying Ms. Gillard had the wool pulled over her eyes by Wilson. So why is he changing his story. Blewitt has been on Gillard hate facebook page. Who paid to bring Blewitt out here. The prostitute that was paid $20,000 by current Affair later said she did not know Thompson after all and there are far more questions Jackson has to answer for. The same with the Slipper Case, not all is how it appears. The POWER of the Media for Political Gain.

  47. She’s guilty. She will get away with it but we all know that she’s guilty. The way I see it, it’s more enjoyable watching her lie. I think there are so many rusted on lefties that couldn’t care less if she killed a man and ate him (and in fact they’d celebrate if it was abbott!) so in the end this is just no more than watching sport. They know she scored off a forward pass but they just don’t care. They want/need the victory and care not for the rules!

    Oh well. The way I see it, if it goes into extra time it will just increase her pain.

    Lefties….. They know not what they do. Ideology loses to logic every single time. Put an idealog in parliament and it is impossible to consistently get re-elected because they hate to submit to democracy and believe there is a silent majority. Put a pragmatist in parliament and at least we have a chance!

  48. Reading your stories (vexnews) really make me vommit. Why is it that yoiu guys are so afraid of the FACTS and the TRUTH. You just cannot let go of JULIA no matter how wrong she may be. What is so special about her. (having multiple cost blow outs after mega multiple cost blow outs running into the BILLIONS of dollars, YES BILLIONS of dollars is not at all normal and it seems vexnews is quite happy with this kind of governing.Vex news reminds of the story of the man who brought in a sick snake ito his house and nursed it to good health and then the snake bit the kind man. Ralph has pertinent information and so does Nick styant B and IAN CAMBRIDGE andi am quite certain that ROXON and shorten and the front bench of the ALP too knows that there are serious issues here. SO VEX NEWS JUST report the facts, if you do not know the FACTS ask and get proof. There are a number of sites in the net that are making comments about the PM and are backing itwith SOLID PROOF> eg.JULIA EILEEN GILLARDS signatures witnessing aPOWER of ATTORNEY , CHEQUES, SLUSH FUND and reform , welfare accounts and misleading the commisoner of WA etc…there is a clause in the handbook about misleading and false reporting…vexnews may want to have a look…
