Labor’s erstwhile followers

labor posterIn commenting on John Izzard’s essay, The March of the Sillytonians, reader IainC observes:

“…Labor became infested with hard core fascists during the Cold War, but this fascist rump has largely left the ALP to form and vote for the Greens. Hence the steady drop in the ALP primary vote, leaving socially conservative working class and union members who share the same basic social and economic aims in life as Liberal voters (different emphases, naturally).

The March in Marchers are hard-core Green crypto-fascists who would find Bill Shorten dismayingly right wing and the views of the working class loathsome.

I don’t think Bill Shorten should be lumped with these bigots by any stretch….”
