Labor hangs together

By johnboy - 23 August 2006 9

ABC radio has been reporting that the ALP has voted as a bloc in the Assembly to ensure no delays or effective inquiries into the future of schooling in the ACT.

Gotta love unicameral majority government.

What’s Your opinion?

CM has gone from hero (‘copter rescue) to zero. When some of the MLAs took a differing view at the conference I thought, FINALLY they are listening. But it’s reverted to a Pythonesque ‘Yes – we are all individuals’ mentality.

I ain’t voting for them this time either.

Obviously Labor doesn’t give a shit about what the parents or students or teachers of the ACT want.

When’s the next election? I want to buy Chief Numpty a “doomsday” clock.

Exactly Mr Pubic….

They were brave enough to vote agaist it when their faction demanded it but come the real vote they did their best impression of a turtle and simply rolled over.

Ethics anyone? Moral fortitude? I doubt they have ever heard the words.

In terms of school closures, through their actions at the ALP Conference, Ministers Corbell and Gallagher put their faction ahead of their agreed Cabinet position. However, in the Assembly they reversed their stand and put their career ahead of their conference position. The Government members all rejected Vicki Dunn’s education motion – which used the exact words many of them had voted for at the Conference. Let’s hope they get what they deserve at the next election.
