Tips and rumours

Chaos hits rump of Australian Democrats? ... which boss gives staff daggy salad servers for Xmas ... PMO is a love-in, not a war zone ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Keeping the bastards honest? Crikey delved into the mad world of the ailing Australian Democrats a few months ago.

The carcass of the party is supposed to be deciding on who should be the national president. A baffled mole brings us the latest instalment in the sad decline of a political party: “Members have received (at least) two different sets of ballot papers with varying closing dates and candidates, and various emails and letters from people claiming to represent the party, and it has been absolutely impossible to tell who is right.”
