Your Ideas: How Labor Can Win Again

What does Labor have to do, or stop doing, or do differently, to start winning elections again?

I would welcome your input to a blog post I’ve half-drafted, proposing ways out of Labor’s current national nosedive.

So far, my draft addresses some of the issues raised in the Bracks/Carr/Faulkner Review of Labor’s 2010 Election performance – you can look at the public report here, and the sealed section’s leaked recommendations are here: (but we still haven’t seen the analysis behind these recommendations).

I’m covering a few other things too.

But, what do you think?  I would welcome comments here or on my Facebook wall, about:

  • What Labor needs to do or
  • What Labor gets right and wrong.

But beware of the discussion policy!  This isn’t an invitation to just attack people.


Update: thanks to Sue and others who told me the review link was faulty – now fixed, I think!
