The knives



I've not commented much on the current state of the Federal ALP. This is because I am a firm believer in democratic centralism.

So I will say that I believe that despite Latho's many faults and reprehensible political beliefs, there is no other person in the Federal Caucus who has the ability to lead the ALP for the next three years.

That there are leaks, backstabbing, white-anting and other instances disunity and fragmentation reflects poorly on the ALP as a whole.

Feel free to express your views in the comments.

    FINALLY SOMETHING I CAN COMMENT ON.
    DEMOCRATIC CENTRALIST...MY ARSE.
    ONE OF THE PROBLEMS THE ALP HAS,IS THAT FOR FAR TOO
    LONG THESE PEOPLE HAVE SAT AND MANIPULATED THE SYSTEM FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT.
    THERE IS NO DEMOCRACY,JUST JOBS FOR THE BOYS.AND THE UPSHOT OF THIS IS THE CURRENT SITUATION WE FACE IN CANBERRA IN MID 2005.
    DONT EVEN GET ME STARTED ON PREF VOTING!!
    THE QUESTION SHOULD BE IS WHAT CAN LATHAM DO FOR THE POOR BASTARD WORKING 12 HOURS A DAY ON $10 PER HOUR......NOT WHICH FACTION CAN GET THIS OR THAT POSITION.
    NEVERTHELESS AT LEAST YOU HAVE SHOWN SOME NADS
    IN PERSUING THE ISSUES.
    LOVE..WORK FASTER

    You should turn your capslock off buddy.

    I disagree that factionalism in this case is the cause of the ALP's woes. Rather, it is personalities and a failure of factions to maintain caucus discipline. It doesn't help that Latho doesn't have any factional support.
