The difference between the ALP and the DLP
Federal Secretary of the Democratic Labour Party of Australia Michael Byrne writes: Re. "Rundle: how the Labor party could reinvent itself -- and save Australian politics" (February 6). Guy Rundle writes of ALP Labor's lost way, yet he misses the point in his hopeful prognostications of their way forward. Rundle locates ALP Labor's purpose as fighting for the "poor and marginal" but with its main support base having moved into the domain of "moderate comfort" and lacking "coincided" interests with the poor. He says the poor need their own Party to represent them.
