Julie Bishop claims Gillard ‘dirt file’ image was digitally altered

Julie Bishop satire

The digitally altered image with the ‘Gillard/AWU’ heading clearly showing

Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop hit back at suggestions the Coalition had a dirt file on Julia Gillard, saying the image of Abbott staffer Peta Credlin holding a folder labelled ‘Gillard/AWU’ was digitally altered by Labor troublemakers.

The original image

Ms Bishop released the original, unaltered image (below) along with the statement: “As if we’d focus all of our attention on digging up dirt instead of developing policies!”

Failed US Presidential candidate Mitt Romney weighed into the issue saying he’d seen a binder full of women before, but never a woman full of binders.

    How ridiculous to think binders that thick could be Liberal policies. Clearly it was always JG / AWU

    Tony Abbott: “There is no dirt unit, there are no dirt files. We don’t operate that way.”

    …No, of course not.
