Oldish
bloke with a beard. Been around for ever. Had a certain degree of
popularity and public recognition a generation ago. But is only still
around because he’s been around for most of the past 20 years.

Yes,
he’s got some valid points to make. But if he’s so clever and
influential, how did he let the situation arise and why didn’t he speak
up sooner? Christ knows what he’s doing in his current
back-to-the-future job. Can’t they find anyone new?

Does anyone else think that ALP national president Barry Jones is more part of Labor’s problem than a solution?
