And lets stop pretending that the Labor party is ‘pandering to the rascist vote’ — they are getting hammered from absolutely every corner for their plan to excise the Australian mainland from the Migration Act. Make no mistake: the Labor party is pursuing their own racist neo-liberal ideology despite the polls.
Also on Hack tonight they interviewed Doug Cameron from Labor’s ‘left’ faction who stated in no uncertain terms that, while he opposes the position, he will not cross the floor. Then they interviewed Judy Moylan - from the Liberals ‘libertarian’ faction who said that she is likely to cross the floor. A scary indicator that Labor has moved right of the Liberals.
