Here we go again, regular as clockwork, its almost Christmas so lets have a challenge to the leadership of the Labor Party.
On this particular occasion, I think it should have happened a long time ago. In fact, I never supported Kim Beazley being leader again after he has failed to make an impression on the Australian voting public many times in the past. I’m sure he’s a really nice man, and he means well, but he’s a fence sitter, and he just does not have the necessaries to lead the Labor Party to victory in 2007.
Something the Labor Caucus voters on Monday night really need to be aware of (but they don’t read my blog so they won’t give a rats ass what I am saying here)… is that last time round, it was not that the Liberal party won (ya hear that, John Howard?) it was that the Labor Party lost. Its a fine distinction with the same ultimate result… but with Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard leading the party, there is a very very BIG probability of a Labor win. If Kim Beazley is re-elected, then the Labor Caucus will have consigned us to another term with Howard (or, god forbid, Costello) running the show.
Please God let the voters see sense on Monday night.
