Discussion over the Labor leadership, and the government in general, is now academic, in the pejorative sense of the term. Barring a shock on a larger scale than that of 2001, Abbott is going to win the election, whenever it is held, and win it easily. Nothing Labor does or doesn’t do can make any real difference now.
At this point, the only issue to be considered is whether he can be stopped from gaining control of the Senate.
On a previous thread here at LP, there’s been discussion of whether a grassroots campaign, associated with neither the Labor Party nor the Greens would be helpful in achieving this aim.
I think it would.
I also think that it would be very positive to have some campaigning on the left which both transcends the single issue/push button clicktivism of GetUp! and Change.org and develops and communicates a unified and political message.
Ideas welcome, please.
