The best news all week
This Age report, Heat on to fix branch stacking, has to be the best news I've heard all week:
"The revelations [of serious branch stacking and questionable memberships in ALP branches] come as ALP state secretary Stephen Newnham fights to keep his job as factional forces and senior government figures push for change."Barista has only a couple of the reasons why that makes me glad – mainly that the name of the ALP's state secretary crops up a fair bit around instances of dirty tricks and smear campaigns in various elections.
Though I doubt getting rid of him would really put an end to the old dirty tricks beloved by the ALP. Would make me happy, though.
