Two polls have shown the Labor government is in trouble, while Deputy Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s popularity is rising as fast as support for Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is plummeting.
If it’s starting to finally dawn on you that Rudd is shallow then wait until you find out how Left Julia is. She has tagged Jim Cairns as one of her heroes.
You remember him? He was the communist who supported the Viet Cong and took up collections to better enable them to kill Diggers. He organized the Moratoriums and went to Moscow every year to better coordinate his attacks on our society.
Oh yes, he was also our Deputy PM under the other “Great” ALP luminary – Gough Whitlam.
The day Julia was selected as Deputy I found and linked to a speech she had delivered to a Girls High School in Melbourne advocating they take to the streets to force change just like Cairns had done. The link was taken down the very next day.
Still, I recall a year or two ago a young man commenting on Communism – “It’s just another political party like the ALP or the Libs, isn’t it? so what chance the young ones heed my cry in the wilderness.
None, but never mind, like a long and hard route march – one day it ends and one day the ALP will be back where they belong.
