LaWe had a little chuckle yesterday as the Liberal leadership spill was called to receive an email from Labor Party HQ. “Will you make these Abbott’s last days?” imploed the subject line from national campaign director George Wright, as it looked increasingly likely that donations to the ALP would have nothing to do with Abbott’s fate. Just seven hours later Labor supporters received another email from Wright, this time readers were told “nothing has changed” with the new PM. Seems like the ALP can’t make up its minds — they’re asking for an end an Abbott prime ministership and as soon it happens they say it doesn’t matter anyway.
