AWU organiser, ALP identity, and all-round classy guy Neville Hilton has been
booted out of the Labor Party:

Brothel owner and Labor party branch secretary Neville Hilton has been formally suspended from the party, NSW ALP General Secretary Eric Roozendaal said today.

The suspension follows reports that two girls, aged 13 and 14, had worked at the brothel.

Mr Hilton, the president of the ALP's Albion Park branch, had come under massive pressure to quit or be removed from the party after it was revealed the two underage girls had worked at a brothel he co-owned.

The Illawarra Mercury reported last week that Hilton replied, “Jesus, is that right?” when a Mercury staffer told him that two of his workers were aged only 13 and 14. He went on to say, charmingly: “They're obviously fully filled out. I wouldn't have thought they would be fully developed at that age."

Others who met the girls disagree:

Former sex worker Pamela Bradley told ABC Radio this morning she was shocked when she met the pair at the Port Kembla brothel.

"A little girl opened the door and, my God, you could tell that she was only about 13," she said.

"Nobody can turn around and say they didn't know that little girl was only 13."

Neville Hilton was last week re-elected as vice-president of the Port Kembla Chamber of Commerce, “which has been working with the Port Kembla Main Street Committee to improve the suburb's image.”

Snuff siad: ministties of racing and gambling a la states ALP guvmnt, unionised labour scam trhe core of the ALP: all they are doing now is how to figure out whether they can be distinguished from the mafia or not or the U.S.Democratic Party which, dear, reader, made possible many scams not only for U.S.unions but also mafia and, often enough, in cahoots all three together, notebaly in N.Y. and L.A. housing projects for the `poor' and, of course, no casino could be set up and run without those trio of gangsters dictating terms.

Funny that, the gangsters in Spring St. and their take on gambling, smoking, hotels, racing, .... wellno worries they have the Rvndress. Bronwyn Pike to absolve them of violating common law and holding real taxpyaers to ransom.

Were they on junior rates? They should have seen their AWU rep.

Well, I was there, and I thought they scrubbed up pretty well for 13 and 14.

Gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "Get tight down under."

I'm surprised to see an ALP branch member employed, although I'm not surprised to read an ALP bloke know bugger all about women (no, make that women and little girls). Unlike one of your other contributors I have no problem with the Hanson verdict but I hope this 'gentleman' feels the full force of the law for aiding the activities of paedophiles.
