Richard Farmer’s chunky bits

Labor to provide new parliament's first broken election promise ... The rise and rise of Angela Merkel and more facts and tidbits from around the net

Crikey political commentator

Labor to provide new parliament’s first broken election promise? If the factional bosses with faces get their way then Labor will win the race to be first to break an election promise. Senator Stephen Conroy started the process yesterday by slanging off about the Kevin Rudd proposal, endorsed by Caucus before the election, to give rank-and-file members a say in deciding the party’s parliamentary leader. No doubt he is out threatening his colleagues with future political punishment if they don’t agree to reverse that decision and return to the good old days where he can retain his undemocratic power.
