Sensible questions on Labor’s incompetence

Labor in Purgatory

LABOR is in purgatory. Purgatory, the place between heaven and hell; the place where souls remain until they have expiated their sins and can go to heaven. Julia Gillard knows Labor’s sins. Appalling profligacy, phony revolutions, phony targets, phony committees and phony commitments. Mounting electricity and water prices extend the suffering. Can she expiate them?

Gary Johns, in his inimitable and stylish way, sums up the dilemma’s for the Australian Labor Party. A minister in the Keating government, he understands the Labor illness better than most. With real tax reform in mind, Johns wonders whether Gillard will actually get around to governing in the broad national interest.
