Will Labor avoid road to extinction?

Posted on: 28 March 2011


On Sunday and Monday morning, supermarkets and pharmacies in New South Wales must have done a roaring as Labor MPs from the last Government and those who wanted to be in a new Labor government, queued for hangover tablets and tissues to dry the tears that wouldn’t stop flowing as they thought about, and relived, their execution at the polls.

 Comments from previous NSW Labor Premiers and Cabinet Minsters who provided the evidence that became the instrument of their execution did not give them any relief.

No doubt the wannabees went over in their minds how they could have avoided execution but the fact is that voters had hard, not just circumstantial, evidence about Labor’s guilt. Even the most cursory research produced eyewitnesses to Labor’s guilt in mismanaging planning, health, education, transport and the myriad other services the community had paid for but couldn’t use because of this mismanagement

And if that wasn’t bad enough, voters didn’t believe that the many Members of the Labor Government who had been sacked from parliament for being involved in corruption and the others who had left perhaps before being sacked was any kind of recommendation to return Labor to office. Sadly, some people who would have made good MPs and served a constituency well, lost out because of this, as did voters.

There is no doubt that if Labor wishes to recover any kind of reputation that would help it climb out of the political chasm in which it finds itself, and wants to become acceptable to voters, it will have to get rid of the people who not only brought about this state of affairs to begin with but also allowed it to continue. It should also get rid of what seemingly has become the unofficial motto of too many Labor politicians: “Whatever it takes.”

While the next four years will be a trying time for Labor it will also be a trying time for Barry O’Farrell as he will have to make sure he doesn’t make the same mistakes as Labor which will be only too easy if he allows his Coalition Government  to becomes complacent.

The next four years should prove interesting.
