In today's SMH Alan Ramsey
summed up the way I feel about this dismal result today (via Counterspin
). Meanwhile the infighting is about to erupt in the ALP
with former Beasley advisor Michael Costello blaming Mark Latham for the "train wreck" result. I hope Latho comes out of this scrap intact, there is no denying that this result is an absolute disaster, but if he's given a united party behind him for a clear run to 2007, the ALP should make inroads. If there is any indication that he should stay or go, Abbott ironically says Latham has a God complex.
Given Abbott's predication for forgetting meetings with men of religion, I am surprised he didn't say, "Mark who?".
