The Party Of Conviction

zeg gough-shorten small

Well that's OK then -- the Australian Labor Party will soon be an entirely new beast, thanks to the groundbreaking efforts of Bill Shorten, that born, raised and pre-selected product of the Trades Hall bruvverhood. Now, all of a sudden, the rolls wil be open to new members who don't come with the union label. Deomcracy? Well, there's that, but self-interest can't be ignored. With the Royal Commission into union corruption just getting started, it may well be that Shorten will enjoy the company of like-minded sorts who don't need to consult counsel before opening their mouths.
