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

Richo,the gangrenous limb and members of the the rub and tug profession.

The Craig Thompson affair must go down in history as one of the lowest of the many low points for Labor under the Gillard regime and it may yet prove to be the gangrenous limb that kills that governemnt, In today’s Oz Richo does very good job of explaining why the necrotic tissue is giving of a very foul stench and why it is so toxic to the body of the Labor party and the Union movement  :

When will this scandal ever end? Its so obvious that every man and his dog have been given the “Go slow” order on this and I have no doubt that we will be still talking about the scandal next April as the governemnt holds power entirely because of Thompson’s vote. But I can’t help wondering if one of the tarts who were paid with a HSU credit card might just come forward and tell the nation just who it was she serviced in those incriminating transactions on Thompson’s HSU credit card…
Now wouldn’t that be a feeding frenzy for the tabloid TV and newspapers? I don’t usually support chequebook journalism but for this scandal I think I could make an exception after all after admitting being with Thompson what working girl could expect to be well paid in the the rub and tug profession?
