    Ben

     

    Great to get your messages from the Senior state in our federation.

    I hope that you and your (happy few) comrades are having more success

    with reform than we are in Victoria.

    I am prompted to pen (well, finger) these words by the labels that you attach

    – as we do – to the factions.

    Left and Right no longer fit.

    The ideological differences that once existed are gone.

    The factions these days are simply collectives of people bound together essentially

    by nothing more than mutual self-interest.

    Accordingly they might called the Colour 1 and Colour 2 factions. But there are not

    any 2 colours that are absent political implications.(try it)

     

    So my suggestion, which I am trying, quietly, to promulgate in Victoria is that the 

    factions in future be referred to as the Wombats and the Koalas.

    Or maybe Dingoes and Wolves.

     

    fraternally Geoff

    The system at the moment is that one has to get elected as a delegate to conference to have a vote. Many branch members are unaligned i.e. have not signed up to the Left or Right (Centre Unity) factions. Why not put your hand up and push for being delegated to conference?
