Toni McHugh Claims, “Gerard Only Had Sex with Other Women to Test Our Love” (New Posters Very Welcome)

TONI MCHUGH  CLAIMS THAT SHE IS AUSTRALIA’S MONICA LEWINSKY

Toni McHugh, who now likens herself to the former US President’s paramour, Monica Lewinsky, said that she believed Gerard when he said that he had not ever had sex with anyone  except for Allison and herself and that she plans to write a book.

Toni McHugh, “I was furious, but I was still madly in love with him.  I remember after the police told me, Gerard called me from a blocked number and said, ‘I’m outside your office, I’m in a cab, I have to talk to you;”.

Toni McHugh, “The first thing he said when I got in the cab was, ‘are you wearing a wire?'”

Gerard Baden-Clay’s mistress Toni McHugh has given a tell-all interview to the Women’s We

Photo courtesy of Women’s Weekly.

Toni and Baden-Clay, in the cab, then drove to a unit at Fortitude Valley to talk.  Toni said, “He gave me all these reasons for having sex with other women.

He wanted to make sure what he had with me was real.  Like an idiot, I believed it,  but he’d also told me previously that he’d never been with any women besides Allison.”

As we know, GBC frequented AdultFriendFinder.com, where he described himself as “average” and, “married, but don’t want to be, looking for some sex on the side!”.

Toni claimed with regard to Baden-Clay being responsible for Allison’s murder, “I’d been putting my head in the sand about that”.

Toni had been hiding in her apartment since her affair with Baden-Clay had become public, her mother phoned her on the 30th April, to tell her to come out of hiding.

Toni also confessed that she had driven over the Kholo Creek bridge just hours before Allison’s body was found, she said, “And that was the worst day because WE drove over that bridge.  We drove over the bridge and she was under there and later that day, maybe around noon, we heard a woman’s body has been found, and I knew straight away – instantly – that it was Allison.”

Toni McHugh on Allison’s children, “I need them to know that I’m very, very, sorry for what’s happened.  The future I was planning with Gerard, it actually included them.  It included Allison!  I thought we would all get to the point where we all, you know, shared custody, like adults, and got on.”

It has been reported that Toni McHugh was paid more than $200,000.00 for the interview with Channel 9’s 60 Minutes programme which aired on the Sunday after Gerard Baden-Clay was charged guilty of murder.

“Toni McHugh quotes of hardship” from what is believed to be another paid interview, this time with Woman’s Weekly:

“I’m still coping with the damage, emotionally and financially”.  (Toni is, of course, being paid for these interviews).

“I lost my job, which I loved, and which I was good at. And sometimes I feel like I’m Australia’s Monica Lewinski – like, what man is ever going to want to come near me?  So I have suffered, too.”

Toni McHugh on feeling sorry for Allison, “I’m so sorry that her life has been so painful – no woman should have to go through those feelings of inadequacy that she was feeling”.

“I can’t be held personally responsible.”

“I know that if it wasn’t me, it would have been another woman.”

“The marriage problems were pre-existing well before I became a part of Gerard’s life.”

Asked if she felt the murder happened because of her, she said: “No. It didn’t happen because of me.”

    • Thanks JJE, I feel an extreme dislike for Toni. Extreme.

      We know that the law in Australia is that those who perpetrated a crime will not make money from it, this should also extend to those involved, namely, Toni McHugh.

      Toni is a peace of work. An absolute piece of work.

        Same dude took Toni for a drive over the Kholo creek bridge on the day Allison was discovered, but before Allison found.
        Together, the “lovers” drove OVER Allison’s undiscovered body.
        What’s that stuff about returning to the scene, ……. sort of?
        Lovers is a stupid word IMO. Neither knew the first thing about love.

  1. I am not trying to express sympathy for her; she is in a mess of her own making. But I like prosecutor Fuller’s sum-up of McHugh that cynically mocked Gerard’s business skills:

    “She fell for the Baden-Clay product and she fell hard”

    I thought Fuller nailed that one; her being duped by the Baden-Clay fantasy. And without sympathy or making her a victim, I see her as another sucker who was dudded, conned and smashed by the Baden-Clay wreckingball.

    • JJE, I felt the same as you to a small extent, for a flash, as I want to believe the best from people. However, a married man with three little girls, who hugged the office staff (Toni from the LJ Hooker would have known that) to the point that the staff felt it inappropriate; GBC who big noted himself for hours on end, surely she could have held herself back and not gone there. One just doesn’t do it. She did, and I think Allison’s summary of her is perfect.

      There is a product, I agree, and Fuller said it perfectly and succinctly, and I was thrilled with his work.

      If Toni gave some or all of the money she is making to the girls, I would think more of her.

      HINT TONI!!!!

    Not know something, as having been a real estate agent, of people lying to you?

      • Well, that is a very good question. The statement she made about GBC testing her love by having sex with other women, shows her rather screwed perception of love. To say such a thing is extraordinary. She likes to be dominated? She considers this to be part of a normal, loving and trusting relationship?

Perhaps TM has no concept of a normal relationship and perhaps had a big sticker on her forehead stating as much when GBC first ‘counselled’ her and then got her in his sights. There would always, always, be something he would get out of it for himself. Adulation, running around like a naughty little boy, potential money, sex and the rest…

            I agree, I think GBC’s running around, “like a naughty little boy” titillated him. I also think he enjoyed TM’s controlling behaviour. She kept questioning him, I think he liked that as he was raised with strong women.

    • I understand that under the Australian Uniform Evidence Law, it is only permissible to adduce evidence in favour of the accused’s character. In other words, it is not permissible to adduce evidence that would demonstrate bad character. The law is different in relation to the character of witnesses, but even there the judge must tell the court that there is a first time for everything. I do believe that the judge in GBC’s case did tell the jury that just because GBC had no prior criminal record, it does not mean that he would never commit a crime.

      So, in essence, only evidence of good character of the accused can be given:

  5. I am fed up to the back teeth with this woman. Honestly! Does she not have a decent bone in her body? Go away Ol’ Tone and finally leave this family in peace. She needs to think about her sons and the impact this is having on them, let alone Allison’s children. I completely agree with you Moonlight. . .she IS a piece of work.
    You are not the victim here Tone, and nobody in their right mind is buying any of the tripe you’re dishing up.

        I find it quite offensive that one of the main players in a brutal murder (yes she did help precipitate the outcome with her relentless pressure on GBC to dissolve his marriage!) is rewarded like this by the media! They are selling out on ethics for the sake of publicity – It is shameful!!

        I do not know of anyone who is interested in hearing anything from her. She has not added any useful public knowledge, and not done herself any favours by trying to become a ‘celebrity adulterer’.
        She comes across as yet another self-centered user of people and circumstances, right in the BC mold…no wonder she got on well with them. No doubt with these attributes it will not take her very long to ensnare her next victim. Hope it’s not someone else’s husband again that she puts her sights on next.

Actually RIP I read on another site that AD (Antonia Denman) was unavailable from her position at Peregian Beach PRIOR to the verdict, as she was otherwise occupied recording the 60 Minutes interview. Let’s get our heads around that! She knew he was guilty and that he’d be convicted (or else the station was going to can the interview in the off-chance that he walked?)

              If you check the LJ Hooker contact list she is no longer there. Either they’ve deleted her temporarily for fear of repercussions, or she’s just ‘lost another job’… I really feel so much for her sons who are only 16 and attending a high school in Brisbane. Their mother is plastered all over national television as the mistress of a man who killed his wife, now the Women’s Weekly article and then God forbid a book! I can’t imagine what it must be like for them, but she clearly considers no-one but herself.

  10. This is so good to hear, an online site being set up by Allison’s cousin to support those in domestic violence situations.

    “ALLISON Baden-Clay’s cousin wants to create an online community for people to talk about one of society’s least talked-about problems – domestic violence.

    Jodie Dann of Ipswich Women’s Centre Against Domestic Violence plans to set up the site to help victims connect with others and reach professional help.

    “Nobody wants to talk about domestic violence – it’s too ugly. But that is how people die,” she said. “We have to start talking about it and get it out there.”

    Ms Dann said her cousin’s death at the hands of a controlling and domineering husband had sparked much talk online from people sharing their own problems.

    She hoped an online community moderated by domestic violence advocates – with links and information on professional services – would encourage people to seek help Ms Dann said abuse did not always have to be physical.
    “It’s the psychological abuse, the control, the isolation, the slow erosion of your self-esteem,’’ she said. “The ‘If you loved me, you’d be wearing what I want you to wear’ or ‘It’s so much better when it’s just you and me and nobody else’.

    “When you look at many domestic violence victims, isolation plays such a big part. It stops you from having friends who say ‘He said what to you’?”

    Figures show one in three Australian women will experience domestic violence, the leading cause of premature death in females aged 15 to 44.

    Ms Dann said she hoped to have a Facebook page soon.”

It looks like the FB page has been set up yesterday, it’s called ‘Dear Allison’ and I’m pretty sure it’s Allison’s cousin’s site as I found her on FB as Jodie with a different surname, but her face is the same as the article Moonlight posted.

    “Mrs Hudson said yellow was Allison’s favourite colour and the day served as a “living scrapbook” for her three daughters.
    “A lot of the time, love is the solution, and they (daughters) are surrounded by lots of love with their family, extended family and close friends so they are doing well despite the circumstances,” Mrs Hudson said.

    “It’s been such a public exercise for the family and they are looking forward to moving forward and seeing the positive things happening in the community in her (Allison’s) memory.

    “For the children, it (Wear Yellow Day) is more like a living scrapbook of their mum and it’s really focusing on the positives.”

  12. Much as I don’t like to admit it, I am becoming of the opinion, Give her enough rope ……
    That rope has allowed a couple of wee clangers to date. “He killed for himself.”
    That is an admittance that he is definitely a killer. No questions asked.
    Who or why he killed is another matter.
    Next, he had to take his “lover” over the scene of the crime, before a crime scene was declared.
    There are plenty more next bits, mainly to do with withholding information. Or lies by omission.
    Next, I say, let her speak more. (Before discarding her completely)
    This is the same person that NBC described as volatile. She was, as he alluded, someone unpredictable.
    Well, her “volatility” might yet see any “appeals” undone.
    Circumstantial evidence may yet be altered to something more, say, “concrete.”

She is definitely a wild card now so it may become very interesting indeed.

  13. I’ve just been reading the Queensland Times which seems to be an Ipswich newspaper and there are some interesting articles on the GBC case there for anyone wanting to have a read. There’s one by a criminal law expert which states:

    “Baden-Clay, 43, cannot appeal his sentence because murder carries mandatory life imprisonment.

    Mr Field said the ultimate question for the appeal court would be whether there had been a miscarriage of justice.

    He said Baden-Clay’s lawyers could argue the verdict was contrary to the evidence or that the trial judge misdirected the jury.

    Mr Field said he doubted either of those would be successful, but the jury’s questions about manslaughter and circumstantial evidence could help the lawyers form their arguments.

    He said the appeal court, if they find a problem with the way the trial ran, could set the conviction aside and order a retrial or they could let the conviction stand.

    “If they think there has been a legal irregularity, such as trial judge misdirecting a jury, but they think there is no miscarriage of justice they can uphold the conviction,” he said.

    Mr Field said the appeal court also had the option of substituting murder of manslaughter if they found there was no evidence Baden-Clay intended to kill his wife.

    “But they are more likely to send it back for retrial,” he said.

    Baden-Clay – who is housed at Wolston Correctional Centre, west of Brisbane – faces a 15-year non-parole period.

    Mr Field said the Queensland Parole Board did not have a good track record in following directions from supreme court judges on recommendations for release.

    He said they were notorious for keeping prisoners in longer than their parole terms.

    Baden-Clay is housed in the same prison as Daniel Morcombe’s murderer, Brett Peter Cowan, who has been in protective custody since he was convicted in March.”

    It’s not looking good for GBC in terms of the appeal. I found the comment on the Queensland Parole Board interesting, that they are “notorious for keeping prisoners longer than their parole terms” which I hadn’t heard before. I think it’s time to knuckle down for the long haul and do the hard yards Gerrrred!

  14. Sorry if I’m off topic here but I’m not sure if others are posting on the appeal thread still? This, I believe, GBC will have a HUGE problem with when he is able to apply for parole:

    “4. CRIMINAL BACKGROUND & OFFENCES

    1. Explain the offence you committed which resulted in the present incarceration.
    2. You may also discuss your criminal background and other offences you have committed if applicable.
    3. Outline your responsibilities of those offences.
    4. RELEVANT ATTITUDES

    Under this section you have to reflect on your offence/s since commencing your period of imprisonment.
    You have to show the board that you are not the same person who came into prison and that you have changed for the better. You may include information such as:

    Your thinking patterns then and your thinking patterns now.
    What do you think of the offence you committed?
    How do you feel for your victims?
    Identify your primary and tertiary victims.
    Tertiary victims include anyone else affected by your crime such as the victim’s family, colleagues, witnesses to the crime and the impact it has caused on the community.
    How do you feel if the same offence was committed by somebody on you or your loved ones? (Victim empathy)
    Why do you think you committed the said offence?”

    I just cannot see him admitting to killing Allison, ever. This includes having any empathy for “primary and tertiary victims” who after all include his own three daughters, Allison herself, her family and his family. I’m sure many prisoners lie to Parole Boards to obtain their freedom and GBC is capable of this. I just really wonder how convincing he would be able to be. Having heard him on the stand during the trial, he has a very unrealistic expectation of other people, expecting them to believe his lies because HE does.

    • The series of questions he would have to answer is very interesting indeed. Thanks for posting these.

      They are all about the ability to reflect on his actions and the level of empathy he may have acquired. It does go back to testing him for degree of psychopathy. Which is good, because he will probably spend a very long time in prison.

      GBC has a very skewed view of the world, and rather unrealistic. I wonder. Surely others who knew him would have become aware of his views and attitudes. These behavioural traits would have been evident for all of his life. And yet, so many of us accept them, and some pay the ultimate price: Allison, her three daughters, her parents.

      The question therefore turns back to us: what are we willing to accept in a fellow human? Part of that answer is to be found in the title of this page: “he was testing our love for him by having sex with other women”. Please explain. This is supposed to be normal behaviour? It clearly is for some, and it is these same people who let GBC run the show… until it ended in tragedy.

      I honestly do not understand some humans.

      • I agree Dan, I too don’t understand some humans. Perhaps this is what makes humans like GBC so different from the rest of us. He is capable of lying, and would admit it himself. I just can’t see him having the ability to show empathy and acknowledging that what he did was wrong. He can show emotion only when it applies to him. I’m sure parole boards deal with the like of GBC all the time. As to TM’s statement “he was testing our love…” these are just the excuses GBC gave her to encourage her as a form of narcissistic supply. As a community we clearly DO NOT accept someone like GBC in our midst as it offends our collective consciousness. I’m not sure that anyone “allowed” GBC to run the show, just that this is the way he operates. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that his parents played a huge role in the development of whatever the disorder he has, occurring. There must be similar behavioural patterns in them, they have encouraged his sense of entitlement with very little to show for the ‘award’ they have offered him. He has never been accountable for his actions, his family have backed him up to the hilt, always. Their behaviour before and during the trial is evidence of this. They appear genuinely shocked that he was found guilty of murder, which in itself says a lot about their concept of reality and community tolerance/expectations.

            FWIW, my father had strong thoughts about Rolf Harris, but didn’t want to burst our absolutely innocent bubble. (His thoughts were not not exactly positive. But he refused to elaborate.)

  15. Someone who has playing in my mind these past few days. Her name, Olivia Baden Clay Walton.
    This female life form had the audacity to get up in the Queensland Court and sprout about Allison.
    She sprouted high, she sprouted low. and she sprouted sideways.
    She sprouted about Allison’s supposed depression.
    She sprouted about Allison’s incontinence of urine, failing to supply details of pregnancy at the time. Bladder type stuff was what she thought necessary to discuss at the time.
    Depression type stuff was also what she thought necessary to discuss also, failing to elaborate the stuff that Allison was being forced to cope with at the time. Stuff that would test the sternest character.
    This Olivia Baden Clay Walton has a LOT to answer for, in my opinion.
    Then, she has the audacity to say words like living authentically for Christ.
    This woman is an Anathema. An Anathema to Jesus Christ. She needs learn the meaning of that. This condemnation is far greater that that of the Queensland Court of Australia. Or her convoluted twisted family.

    • Well said, QCL- Olivia Isobel (“Isobel” being her new Facebook name, one of her mother’s middle names) Baden-Clay Walton lets womanhood down.

      She should stand down from the Church, immediately.

      I notice, interestingly, that Olivia’s husband looks like a Baden-Clay.

      It is ironic, on her Facebook page, that her favourite movie is, “Miss Representation”.

        I was expecting something like GBC has been found guilty of his wife, Allison’s murder. Sentenced.
        Having said that, I have the utmost respect for the authors of such works. To my understanding, works such as this, and Ancestry works are put together with no renumeration whatsoever for the author.
        Must be a kick in the guts to have this wonderful family history work besmirched by a common con-artist. Worse, that smoke and mirrors creature comes from within the BC family.

            I think it was supposed to show at the Court House last month. When and where somehow, at sometime, a magical spirit appeared out of nowhere and disposed of Allison. Then returned to the home of the sleeping beauty (not) and gouged his face, with fingernail scratches.
            Apparently there is quite another story attached to Alladin’s Lamp. And it involves adultery, deception, rags, riches, and murder.

            • A very apt analogy, QCL. Yes, either the genie out of Alladin’s lamp or the bogeyman did it. But since no defense counsel would allow such nonsense, GBC had to come up with the concept of suicide. As it turned out, it was just as unlikely.

        Did Gerard say at one stage that he tried to set Allison up with his friend, Ian Walton?

        Only to win her heart himself, and conveniently slot his sister into marriage with his friend instead.

  16. Here is a very poignant and powerful letter written to Allison by her cousin Jodie on the ‘Dear Allison’ FB page on 1st August 2014.

    “Dear Allison

    I miss you, even though we didn’t see each other a lot. I can’t believe I have to write this letter to you.

    There are so many things I wish I had said to you. I wish it with all my heart.
    There are things I never did for you, for fear of putting you at risk of more abuse.
    Maybe I was afraid that I was just being suspicious because I didn’t trust Gerard.
    Afraid that you would not want to hear it and would avoid seeing me.
    Afraid that maybe I was right, and you were in a worse situation than everyone thought but were pretending everything was OK.
    Afraid that the family would be upset if you did decide to leave Gerard and blame the interfering cousin.

    And now I wish I had just followed my gut and told you all those things I thought were happening. Maybe things would have been different.

    I know I am not the only person who loved you who is thinking what if…

    I wish I could have told you the things that abusive men do and you could have told me what he was doing to you. I could have helped you.

    So I will say all those things now, those things I should have said when you were still alive, and maybe other women will hear them.

    Is he not letting you see your friends?
    Is he not letting you do things with your family?
    Is he saying mean things to you? Does he tell you you’re fat, ugly, smelly, that you embarrass him in public?
    Does he tell you that he doesn’t want you to do things at the school with the children?
    Is he lying about where he is and who he is with?
    Does he make all the family decisions and leave you with no say?
    Does he mislead you, letting you think something when he knows the truth – knowing this will keep you off balance?
    Does he take the children away and tell you to stay at home alone?
    Does he make you second guess everything you do until you think you are going mad?
    Is he hurting you physically?
    Does he force you to do things in the bedroom you don’t want to do?
    Does he threaten you, telling you if you don’t do one thing, he wouldn’t let you do something else?
    Is he listening to your conversations? Does he spy on you with the baby monitor?
    Does he watch the kilometres on your car?

    Allison, you were so good at so many things and you always strove to do the right thing.
    You tried so hard to keep your marriage together and you didn’t know why it was failing.

    It must have been a relief to know “G’’, as he made us call him, was having an affair. You must have known then that it was not you, that it wasn’t your fault.

    Even when you tried to get marriage counselling, he was still cheating – and not just with one woman.

    G was never happy unless everything was about him. He had to be the centre of the conversation, always in the spotlight.

    Well, now he is, and he will shine a light on his behaviour.

    Love doesn’t hurt.
    Love doesn’t make you embarrassed or ashamed.
    Love doesn’t make you cry.

    I feel so sad that you always wanted to be famous and now, because of what he did to you, you are.
    This is not fair.

    I feel sad that you will never again see your family, see your children grow old.
    I feel sad that those three beautiful girls have lost the best mummy in the world.
    I feel sad that your family has to go through such a public nightmare with something so ugly.
    I feel sad that I have to talk about domestic abuse and use your name to get people to listen.
    I feel sad that you’re not alive to help me do this.

    I felt you growing stronger in the last year or so of your life. The shine had come back and I feel so proud of you for scratching his face and letting the world really see the true side of G.

    I feel so proud that without you we would not be talking about a problem that kills over 60 women and children a year and affects one in three Australian women.

    I felt proud when a woman said to me in court about five months ago “I came here today to get safe because my doctor told me I would end up like that Baden-Clay lady if I didn’t get a DVO’’.
    You saved her life.

    I feel proud when another lady said “my best friend talked to me about Allison and I felt like she was talking about my life’’. That’s why she asked for help to live without control and isolation.

    Allison, you are everyone’s daughter, friend and sister.
    I want people to see you and think if you fought to survive, they can too.

    I am so sorry that this had to be written, that I didn’t say these things to you. But because of your death, I truly believe you will save the lives of hundreds of women.

  17. Dear GHS,

    Here is an excerpt of GBC’s testimony with regard to how he tried to set up Allison and Ian:

    GBC is listing his community roles. He is talking about meeting his wife when they were working at Flight Centre. Allison was “Miss Brisbane”. GBC is talking about working as an accountant before moving to Flight Centre. “I have a Bachelor of Business degree with a major in accounting. My Flight Centre Office was the number one in Queensland,” He spoke about Flight Centre’s core values. He said that he progressed from a sales consultant. “I did very well. I was regularly a top performer. In 1995 Flight Centre opened a 24 hour division and I was asked to start that as a national manager. Allison was on the floor above, she was Qld human resources manager. I was quite good with computers, Allison had a problem with her computer and I helped her. She had more and more problems with her computer. I played match maker with my now brother-in-law Ian, it didn’t work. I was pleased. We started dating that weekend. Allison’s mother’s family is large and they have a big Christmas. I remember meeting her family that Christmas.

    I fell in love with her (he is crying, having broken down in the witness box).

    I fell in love with her pretty much straight away, I felt a level of emotional attachment to Allison, far deeper than I’ve ever experienced before, she was the one. I felt so in love with her, I knew I wanted to marry her.

    I spoke with my father about whether I should ask Allison or her father first, Dad told me to ask Allison. I proposed under the Eiffel Tower at Park Road at Milton. Allison was completely taken by surprise and asked for a week to think about it. She said “yes” after a week.

    Like

    • Geez, this says so much! First GBC tried to set her up with IW – WHY would he do this if he fancied Allison himself? Testing her perhaps?

      The fact that he needed his father’s advice on how to approach the marriage proposal is the story of his pathetic life, and a taste of things to come. Dad said I should call a solicitor on the day Allison ‘disappeared’, Dad said I should lodge a claim on Allison’s life insurance the day after a body (not yet identified) was found. Come on GBC, grow some for once in your life! But you won’t will you? But where you now find yourself in a maximum security prison, you can’t ask Dad for advice can you? Dear Dad has no experience in such matters and you are alone amongst the wolves where you belong.

      I really find the fact that Allison had to think for a week about whether to accept GBC’s marriage proposal speaks volumes. She wasn’t sure. She had a gut instinct. She could not have been in love and without any doubt to reply that way. It is so unbelievably sad that she didn’t follow that instinct and was sucked into the abyss.

      It’s interesting that he used the words “my office” with reference to it being number one in the state. His office? Or the office he worked in along with Allison and others, who as a team achieved this ranking. I know I’m being pedantic but his chest-beating wears thin.

  18. I found this article in the Courier Mail yesterday. It shows that community outrage is still high regarding Allison’s murder, and interesting to remember that Shields was a former homicide detective. I wonder if it was Shields who came up with the defense angle then? Allison took Zoloft, wandered off into the night and lay down under a bridge etc. He MUST have known that the prosecution would show images of Allison’s body, which in themselves indicate the position in which her body was found, and that she could NOT have lay down herself in that position. I guess as the article says, the defense were working under “particularly difficult circumstances”, as they really had very little to work with. I wonder if this is a dig at GBC, and how impossible a client he would’ve been being a delusional liar with his own ‘bright ideas’ like taking the stand himself.

    “IT’S almost three weeks since reviled wife killer Gerard Baden-Clay was handed a life sentence for murdering the mother of his three daughters. Alas, the anger — as is often the case in high-profile cases — has spilt over and resulted in unsettling and vile threats and insults being levelled at people undeserving of any criticism whatsoever. Case in point, we know Baden-Clay’s lawyers have been on the receiving end of countless menacing phone calls and emails since the case wrapped up. Veteran criminal lawyer Peter Shields has confirmed his office — staffed by people with no real connection to the case — have received at least a dozen calls and emails worthy of causing considerable alarm. It is a well respected tenet of Queensland Law that everyone deserves the right to a fair trial and as such good legal representation to ensure justice is not only done, but seen to be done. No one can argue Baden-Clay didn’t have the best representation available in the form of Shields, a highly respected lawyer and former homicide detective, and legendary silk Michael Byrne, QC. For the record these men did in outstanding job under particularly difficult circumstances and should be applauded by a community who can sleep well in the knowledge Baden-Clay is behind bars despite a robust defence. That, and the fact that he is hardly the worst person either Michael or Peter have ever defended. In 2003, Shields garnered international attention when he defended Queensland’s first convicted serial killer Leonard Fraser.”

  19. I have noticed, dear Sad for Allison, how strained Shields looks now, in comparison to older photos. Of course, we can only speculate on why Shields looks so strained.

    My view is that Shields didn’t come up with the defense angle. He would have the experience to know that it didn’t make sense for a lady, who didn’t like to walk, leave her children, after putting her husband’s phone on charge, to walk on dark, extremely hilly streets, placing herself in a dangerous situation.

    In my view, he would have said that anyone could have picked her up from the streets and kidnapped her. Who? We don’t know.

    GBC had a fight with Allison, he received the scratches, but it had nothing at all to do with her murder, it was a fight they had before she went outside the house and was kidnapped.

    My theory is that GBC, along with his ego and “high self intelligence” studying his law books in jail, with his much loved ego, came up with his own defense, his initial lawyers couldn’t see a case and advised him to not go down that route. GBC then fired them, then had Shields represent him.

    What does everyone else think?

        We settle on our property next Fri and will be in QLD the midweek following … we flew to Brisbane last Tuesday and returned late Thursday .

        We had done our homework and asked all the relevant details of the agent , however on arrival found we’d been told many absolute lies and I must add the pictures were of the property but had been enhanced and possibly doctored .
        After a rather heated discussion I calmed down somewhat and said something along the lines of “it looks like QLD has many agents like that Bloody Baden Clay” he retorted “we’re not all like that and besides I’m Sth African and his father is a decent chap ” he started his car and drove off never to be seen again ….
        I took it he must be a friend of Nigel’s … my advice , steer clear of Ray White Real Estate Aspley.
        We then got back to our list of prospects and set off to inspect another property , making a long story short and after having all my questions answered to my satisfaction I made a low offer and left it with the lady brokering the deal who said she’d contact the seller but thought he’d knock it back … with that done we headed to Byron Bay to see my youngest who turns 21 tomorrow … while chatting the mobile rang and I informed Diane we’d just bought a new home .

        Forward to the next morn where I’d arranged to meet @ 10am and pay a deposit and do the paperwork . Up early I thought I might check with council to just be certain all I’d been told was correct … it was a bunch of bull , the council informed me that what I was assured was plain and simply … lies !
        So , we’re home again , a few bob lighter and no new place as yet. We’ll drive up after settlement find a base and continue the search.
        Hopefully others from here will make it to Brookfield and we can say hi.

    “ALLISON Baden-Clay’s special nurturing of her three daughters is helping them flourish despite them losing both of their parents, her family has revealed.
    Speaking for the first time since Gerard Baden-Clay’s guilty verdict for murdering his wife, Allison’s sister Vanessa Fowler said the girls knew their mother was a “special lady” and were already showing her traits.
    The girls are all successful in school and the eldest is excelling in ballet — just like her mother.
    “They are doing things that Allison would be looking down on them — she’s proud,” Ms Fowler
    told The Sunday Mail.

    “I think the seeds that Allison planted when they were young and the guidance she gave them as they were growing up, she has directed them in the right way and I think that will be with them for the rest of their life.
    “The girls are very proud of their mother and they know their mother would be very proud of them.”
    Ms Fowler gave the first insight into how the girls were rebuilding their lives.
    The girls — now aged 13, 10 and 7 — are seeing a counsellor and continuing their lives as best they can, Ms Folwer said.
    “We just have to make sure they are happy and they have every opportunity we can give them and that they have a successful life and a happy one.
    “They have lost their mother and their father — literally.
    “There is nothing that we can do, we can’t go back but we have to move forward with them and just be positive for them,” she said.
    The eldest of the children was excelling in ballet, the middle daughter was enjoying a leadership role in class while the youngest was sweet and thriving in her primary school environment.
    “That is just Allison’s nurturing and her guidance that has got these girls where they are,” Ms Fowler said.
    “They talk about her, they are working with their counsellor so hopefully in the long run they will be able to know the situation.
    “I don’t think they really comprehend it at the moment,” she said.
    “We’re guided by the counsellor and he deals with a lot of their questions and that’s all confidential between them.”
    Baden-Clay, a former Brookfield real estate agent, 43, pleaded not guilty in the Supreme Court at Brisbane to murdering his wife, 43, who he reported missing on April 20, 2012.
    He was arrested in June, 2012. A jury found him guilty of murder in July this year.
    Allison’s parents Geoff and Priscilla Dickie had taken leading roles in caring for the children since her death, Ms Fowler said.
    “They’re doing this all again,” Ms Fowler said.
    “They brought all three of us up and now they are doing it again. Their lives have changed. But they wouldn’t have it any other way given the circumstances that have been thrust upon them. “The girls come first. They will do anything and everything for the three girls. That’s their life now and that is their focus.”
    Ms Fowler said the girls were proud of their mother and learnt from her achievements before her life was cut short.
    “They will certainly grow up with Allison’s passion, care, generosity and kindness,” she said.
    While growing up without their parents was difficult she said the family was trying to keep the girls’ lives as normal as possible.
    “They play with their friends, we’re still connected here with Brookfield friends,” she said.
    “They are making friends at their new school and community. They are bring brought up with a lot of love and a lot of care because we know there is a long road ahead. All of the family.
    “They still have contact with their other grandparents.”
    Ms Fowler said the family wanted to financially support the girls throughout their schooling and into university and with raised money going towards school expenses, living and extra curricular activities.
    “They do what normal kids do,” she said.
    “As they grow up and go to university we want to make sure they grow up and have what they need.
    Ms Fowler said one of her sister’s goals was to educate her daughters through schooling to give them the best life she could.
    “She will think they are on track right now,” she said.
    “She will think they are prospering, doing so well. I think she would be really pleased.”
    Ms Fowler described her sister as generous and caring, not just for her children but for everyone she met.
    “She put herself last and put everybody else first. She did everything she could for anybody else. “She was just very generous and very giving. She was very strong. She was very strong.
    Ms Fowler said the family still had a long journey ahead since Baden-Clay’s guilty verdict.
    “We were pleased with the outcome but it’s not going to bring Allison back. At least we have some justice,” she said.
    Ms Fowler said the annual Allison Baden-Clay Children’s Appeal, which included a family fun day and cricket match, was part of the healing process for the family.
    “Everybody is sending us their thoughts and prayers, we just want everyone to come together to personally say thank you to them,” she said.
    “Thank you is not enough for what everybody has done for us.
    “We just have to make the best of the tragic situation and this is our life’s path now.
    “Just to have so many people around us, it just motivates us to keep going.”
    She made special thanks to the Queensland Police Service who were able to take part in the event this year.
    “The police and the firies and the SES who were all involved in the search, we can’t thank them enough,” Ms Fowler said.
    “They came out in rainy weather day and night. They came in on their days off. They were so dedicated.”
