Here we go again, the old branch stacking chestnut. Does anyone really care how a party chooses its candidates apart from the members themselves? Compare this latest
bunk on Latham. He allegedly got someone to conjure up 49 new members for a branch so that a left winger wouldn't get the nod. So what? Is this any different to the "open" contest that went on in Wentworth between King and Turnbull? All the libs will be rubbing their hands with glee but it makes no difference to the electorate whatsoever.
