If a Labor rout is the best that they can hope for should they get it over with ?

In the game of politics there comes a point when no amount of “cleverness” is going to save a governemnt and its not at all surprising that The Gillard government continues its slide into political oblivion. If Labor was ever going to get a bounce from the showering of government largess upon the public it should have been evident by now. Sure some of the ALP faithful will be insisting that its the day that the money hits people’s pockets that will bring some bounce for this beleaguered regime but I don’t think that it will because in the age of EFT magically making money appear in your account even large deposits can easily go unnoticed.

The way that Labor’s fortunes are going they had better go to the polls soon while the swing is  only 8% because the longer that they wait the worse things seem to get.

Here is a left field idea just imagine that Craig Thompson decides that he has had enough of being the most hated man in parliament and he finally does the right thing and resigns his seat bringing down the whole rotten edifice of this very bad government. Gillard and Labor would be spared the whole  shallow pretence that they could win the election and they try instead to save face by fighting a clean campaign free from the “Abbott Abbott Abbott”  scaremongering……

OK some of that scenario is unrealistic but the way things are going it may just happen

Cheers Comrades
