Real face of Labor (letter)


by Brian Handley

News Weekly, October 8, 2005
Sir,

Before 1955, the Labor Party put principle before politics, and men of substance and character such as Chifley and Curtin rose to the top of the pile to lead a great party.

After the 1955 split, men of substance such as Brian Harradine were isolated and ultimately expelled from the party by men of flawed character such as Mark Latham.

Enter modern Labor where the only guiding principle is personal self-interest and collective self-interest.

When these interests collide, the factions typically sort it out behind closed doors.

Occasionally however, the public get to witness the real face of Labor when the payback goes public as with the current Mark Latham circus.

Kim Beazley Snr was right: the dregs of the middle class do now run the party. Australians should hope and pray they never again run this country.

Brian Handley,
Moe, Vic.
