Bill Shorten “elected” leader of the ALP with a Caucus majority and a member minority -that should be good for the ALP members out in the community- the “new ALP democracy” has elected a leader they didn’t want.
GG Bryce, aka Shorten’s MIL, has offered to resign to avoid conflict of interest and Abbott has said no. A good call I think – she is due to finish soon anyway.
This should get the expenses debate off the front page as we now have an Opposition – seven weeks after the general election! The ABC and Fairfax will be citing every word Shorten utters as they studiously ignore the Coaltion’s successes.
