It's been a long time, sadly, since I voted 1 Labor. What's happened to the light on the hill?

So unhappily true. When I first saw him using the Beaconsfield mining disaster to get a national profile the warning bells went off. Ability outstriiped by ambition.

Another short, sharp and to the point cartoon from Fiona. Many thanks.

Well done, Fiona. Perhaps I am missing something in the media, but it seems to me that not only is Mr Shorten engaging in pusillanimous echoing of the Prime Minister, but so it the rest of the Party. Surely there are some members of the ALP who can offer intelligent counter views on the issues raised in this marvellous cartoon. If not, we might have to start talking about the Federal Government and the Federal Agreement.

Shorten is a bitter disappointment- even worse at a time when a healthy opposition is so important. Must go NOW
