Dear Mark letter
I had a good chat with Christian Zahra in the main street of Trafalgar two weeks before the election. He asked to support his re-election bid but I told him honestly that although i would remain silent and not campaign against Labour (which i honoured) i could not support
Labour either and the best they would get would be 4th or 5th preference ahead of the stinking Liberals, Nationals and One Nation. In the Senate Labour was lucky to get the 50th preference with only the scumbags Liberal, National, One Nation behind.
When you are doing your review you may wish to keep in mind the way WORKERS have been shafted over the past 20 years and why your party now only gets preferences from workers ahead of the Conservatives. Labour will never hold government again in its own right if workers continue to vote such as this.
I feel i am wasting my time because you dont listen to us before an election so why would you listen to us now?
You say you went around the country listening to workers but i feel you must have had cotton wool stuck in your ears and you and your counterparts really are going around the country trying to sell what you want not what we want.
Each leader comes out after being defeated and says theyve listened to the people and theyve learned.I'll bet youve learned nothing about what we want from the Labour Party and our Union-Actu and what we want for our working lives to support our families and teach and raise,educate our children.
To end i would like to say whilst Labour acts as a pale imitation of the
scumbags the people will continue to vote for the scumbags.
Come out with pro worker policies and vision and the punters will come home to roost.
We dont want to be casual.
We dont want to be subcontractors when will you people get it.
We want consistent secure employment and a united LABOUR PARTY with a vision of Nation Building for Australia's future.I believe the workers will return to Labour when and only when these visions are realised and all architects of the worker ravaging accord are finally moved on.
