At a meeting of the Liberal Party at the weekend, accredited members purporting to show support for a member expelled loudly demonstrated against the parliamentary leader. It is the behaviour that thugs and fools use against local government. Its only purpose can be to harm the relevant instrument of government.
That purpose was achieved. The press reported it, and the ordinary reader would doubt whether any outfit so composed or plagued could represent anyone.
On the previous Sunday, the press reported on the responses of anonymous MPs to the expulsion. One said it was not a show of faith in the leader after a demoralising ‘shitshow’.
He will have my support, but he does need to do a better job of leading. It’s not the job of followers to follow, it’s the job of leaders to lead. You’ve put everyone in a situation that they did not want to be in.
Another MP said the expulsion was an act of ‘infanticide.’
It is plain why these bunnies wish to stay unnamed. They have no idea of what they are doing. They should not be there.
To adopt a remark of Lincoln, the question is whether any party so dedicated can long endure. Its persistent failure to serve its purpose is a threat to us all.
Liberal Party – Deeming – Two party democracy.
