Gillard continues to face grilling on AWU scandal

Gillard continues to face grilling on AWU scandal

The Federal Opposition has used Question Time again today to grill Prime Minister Julia Gillard, over what she knew about a slush fund scandal at the Australian Workers Union in the 1990s.

It comes after Ms Gillard faced a barrage of questions during a press conference and in parliament yesterday.

Speaking in question time today Ms Gillard has said the Opposition is using the issue to avoid the fact they have no new policy ideas for the future of Australia.

Meanwhile, Labor frontbencher Anthony Albanese has accused Opposition Leader Tony Abbott of hiding behind Ms Bishop, to avoid further criticism.

He says the Coalition needs to start digging up new policies instead of dirt
