Cannot figure our Dyson Hayden, ex HC Judge.
He once wrote a textbook on evidence. He is describing "circumstances of grave suspicion" yet does not refer the matter to Western Australian Department of Public Prosecutions for further investigation.
I have known Dyson Hayden slightly, but for years, hearing him talk in the NSW Bar refectory and lounge. My guess is that "raison d'etat" has in his mind decided that an ex-PM should not be put on trial. There has always been a naive element about him.
If an ex-leader of the Socialist Alliance (read Mocow aligned Communists and fellow travellers) do not know in advance how a union shakedown of a capitalist construction company works and always did I will eat my hat.
And to suppose that the company officers doe not know how it works I will eat my hat. The matter should have been hnded over to various DPP's and police forces or a Crime Commission for futher examination, Those who paid should run the full legal gauntlet as well as those who took or conspired.
I have voted Labor all my life despite the crazy secret Left infiltrators. Has Dyson Hayden merely confirmed that those who profit (including the bosses) can get away with it again. Like I said Dyson Hayden always struck me as a very learned, highly intelligent legal scholar who was also naïve.
