If you are just starting to read now, go straight to the bottom and read the numbered posts in order.
My interest in this complex story started when I began following Michael Smith’s blog right from the beginning. The thing that kept me hooked as the documents were presented was why would someone bash Bob K nearly to death to stop him talking? Why would a prime minister of Australia attempt to shut down all reporting on this story if there was nothing in it? Why would Michael Smith walk away from his job as a radio announcer to investigate Bob K’s story?
The bloggers who followed Michael through this journey became convinced that crimes had been committed. These people include lawyers, accountants, real estate professionals, ex police, bank officials, archivists, health professionals…the list goes on. They all want to know the truth.
But the mainstream media with the exception of a few such as Hedley Thomas and Mark Baker have hardly touched the story. The reason why is another question I ask myself.
In January 2013, I decided to start this page to try and make the complexities a bit easier to understand for people who have not really been informed. It is not a full description of what is known. And I thank Michael Smith for allowing me to share his documents with you.
This is now a major fraud squad investigation, and the next few months will be fascinating. If I was you, I’d stay tuned to Michael Smith News.
For my part, I am an ordinary woman and mother who didn’t even have a facebook page until January 2013. But I got cranky, because I really want to know who bashed up our friend Bob Kernohan.
I don’t like violent sociopaths, you see.
