So Jackie Kelly reckons the Libs’ leaflet was all just a “Chaser-style prank”? And the Labor people who sprung them were union thugs? Oh, and she doesn’t know any of the people who put out the sh*t sheet, except for her hubbie, who hasn’t been expelled from the Liberal Party anyway… Way to go, Jackie. Way to spin…
Trevor Cook puts it succinctly:
An absolute disgrace. A cynical manipulation of baseless fears. The Liberal Party in NSW is a bloody mess and it ought to be disbanded and re-built from the ground-up.
But let’s let Paul Keating have the last word:
The principal reason the public should take the opportunity to kill off the Howard Government has less to do with broken promises on interest rates or even its draconian Work Choices industrial laws, and everything to do with restoring a moral basis to our public life.
