Already the Media is pointing out that John Robertson IS part of the PROBLEM, not part of the SOLUTION. I agree.
What about this comment, from Crikey today?
- "The arrogance of Iguana-gate was far from unusual in NSW Labor, he said -- recalling one senior frontbencher, still in the Legislative Council, who entered a restaurant late at night and ordered staff to re-open the kitchen just so he and his team could have a meal. Senior Labor figures, he added, regularly spoke with utter disdain about the working-class people they were supposed to represent.
- "He had sailed too deep into NSW Labor's heart of darkness. Now he campaigns for the Liberals.
- "Pat's tale is a personal one -- yet it is also the story of the election. Over the past four years, many Labor loyalists in NSW decided the party no longer represented their interests or their values. The ALP was seen not as a light on a hill but as a patronage machine interested above all in perpetuating its own power."
And their applications would be rejected - stamped "Suspected Terrorist".
Its all too late.
