Me quoted by Georgia Wilkins in The Age (and other Fairfax publications) today.

Reformers and revolutionaries

I welcome the opportunity to work with colleagues in the ALP when we fight for a common goal. I just don’t notice the ALP membership today mobilising itself, let alone wider sections of society, for anything progressive.

Let the asylum seekers into Australia!

He has the unanimous loyalty […]

Howes on refugees

To all those ‘left’ Labor apologists for Rudd on refugees,  let me quote Paul Howes from the right wing Australian Workers’ Union. ”Rudd has an approval rating of 68 per cent . He has the unanimous loyalty of his caucus. He has an almost non-existent Opposition. He is in a unique position to change the debate. […]

Asylum seekers are not terrorists

Since 1992 Australia has detained over 20,000 asylum seekers who have arrived by boat. In these 20,000 asylum seekers there have never been a single person who has been found to be a terrorist, not a single one.

The world crisis and the political situation in Australia

At the centre of the Australian political situation today is the contradiction between the deep crisis in world capitalism on the one hand and the ongoing stability and political quiet in Australia on the other writes Corey Oakley in Socialist Alternative.
