WHITE FLAG: Charlie Donnelly formally abandons failed coup as Labor Unity soul searching commences

nuwretreat The National Union of Workers National Secretary and ALP State President Charlie Donnelly has announced this afternoon that he’s finally decided to cancel the meeting of the party’s Administrative Committee called to sack their State Secretary Steve Newnham.

He did this following the decision by Socialist Left Admin members not to participate in the planned Monday massacre following requests made by the Premier John Brumby. They certainly covered themselves in uncharacteristic glory. A good number of patriots in Labor Unity and other factions made their position very well known that they would not be attending either.

“It is a fiasco. Bay of Pigs had nothing on this mate. There are bodies everywhere, this is like old school 1970s Labor and we (the Right) did it. It’s unforgivable” one troubled observer remarked about the surrender.

An SDA patriot observed their Christmas Party this evening might be a sombre affair after today’s devastation.

“Donnelly’s made the SL (the Socialist Left)  look like they’ve saved the day and the Right look like a dangerous rabble that can’t be trusted making big decisions,” another explained.

Many wonder what will happen now. Christmas is next of course, fortunately it can remain on the political calendar now the crisis has been averted.

But few think that the adventurist NUW’s role in this epic fiasco will be forgotten. Or forgiven.

“Labor Unity needs to ask some very fundamental questions, starting right now. What do we stand for? Who can we trust?” said one faction veteran still shocked at the dimension of this bizarre and outrageous episode.

Here’s the email of surrender, and note after nearly blowing up the party they are meant to be part of leading, Charlie takes time to wish all Admin members seasons greetings and expresses his desire to “look forward to a productive New Year”. Enough to make us wonder, should Auld Acquaintance Be Forgot?

    The damage has been done. Irresponsible and reckless. Donnelly’s credibility is on the line and he should resign as Victoria’s ALP President.

    Go on Donnelly. Get out while you can or get hunted down.

    Donnelly is a top bloke. Be nice to him. Please.

    Ant – the guy is a retard. While I’d love to see him go, I reckon having him stay where he is for the next six months could be more valuable. At least you can punch the f*** out of him while you’re holding his left hand.

    It’s more fun that way.

    SDA = Slip Dicks in Arseholes.
    NUW = Neurological Underchallenged Wankers.

    Slip Dicks in Arseholes! I think not!

    That would be contrary to Church teaching and therefore not in line with the SDA policy platform.

  11. anon

    Lets NOT go down the path of “Church” Teaching! Otherwise the choirboy WILL be fucked!

    No surprise Charlie backed off.He acts and talks tuff but he is really just a nerdy little wimp. He must have been the nerdy little kid that got picked on at school.Now he takes it out on whoever he can. Poor foolish little Charlie,when will you learn.
