The Big Red Button

“You could be forgiven for assuming that Australia has, for much of the last year, been without an Opposition Leader. Bill Shorten has taken, not just the small target but the target-so-tiny-you-can’t-even-see-it strategy. With the Coalition getting a lift in the polls from its hairy-chested approach to foreign affairs and national security, Labor’s failure to form an alternative identity has lost them both credibility and support.” [Fiona Katauskas, 3 October 2014]
