I’m hoping something comes online soon, but I just heard Simon Corbell explaining why his vote against the Government (of which he is a cabinet minister) at the ALP’s conference on the weekend was not a major issue.
Apparently his breaking of Cabinet solidarity was not a big deal because he had to vote with his faction. He thought his faction was wrong, but voted with them anyway against the Government.
It seems this sort of thing is normal in the principled world of the ALP.
So, in future, how are we to know what he actually means when he supports things?
