Labor Party's morass (letter)


by Marcus L'Estrange

News Weekly, November 19, 2005
Sir,

In some ways Mark Latham, with the recent publication of his diaries, has done a great service to the nation in general and the Labor Party in particular.

The scrapping of the old parliamentary superannuation fund - which was one of the greatest rorts going and a key reason why so many current, low quality Labor MPs would kill their own mother to get a seat in parliament - was a magnificent achievement.

Second, he has exposed so much rottenness in the once great ALP that simply had to be exposed if the party was to ever govern nationally again.

The late and great B.A. Santamaria once viewed the ALP as being a large shell but being essentially rotten inside, and how correct he was.

In the mid-1950s, a great and traditional part of the ALP, the European Christian Democrat tradition group, was expelled by a rigged party conference in Hobart.

The cream of the working class was removed and the dregs of the middle class started to take over - hence today's morass.

Marcus L'Estrange,
ALP St Kilda (Vic) branch member,
c/- London, UK.
