The Canberra Liberals have posted a peculiar media release congratulating themselves on the forward looking nature of re-electing their president of the last 5 years (assuming for a moment a term is a year?), Gary Kent.
And haven’t they just been golden years chock full of success?
I was particularly impressed (horrified?) with these thoughts from the party president:
Mrs McDiven, who was elected in June as the first ever female national president of the Liberal Party, told the meeting that there were three essential pillars of a strong and effective Liberal Party:
* parliamentary representatives able to demonstrate effectively their policy convictions and accurately represent community values;
* top quality organisational staff who are the best at what they do;
* a strong network of volunteers to provide day to day support to the party and to spread the Liberal message across the nation.
No actual beliefs of their own then? Things are going to get grim if they ever get thrown out of The Lodge.
