TALIBAN TENSIONS: It won't shock you to learn a faction comprising Maoists, Shoppies & union millionaire Kathy Jackson has occasional moments of discord

fourmullahsSerious tensions are arising in the ALP’s “Taliban” faction in Victoria, according to high-ranking insiders within that group, following today’s extraordinary effort in The Age where key figures of that group appeared to be undermining an endorsed party candidate days prior to the Broadmeadows by-election.

A letter apparently signed by four union secretaries, including the notorious CFMEU Construction division, asserted that the ALP candidate Frank McGuire isn’t a member of the ALP. He of course has already been endorsed as the ALP candidate and received dispensation from a range of old-fashioned party rules drafted up years ago by leftist thugs like Bill Hartley to exclude outsiders from party preselection.

DON’T BLAME US, IT’S KATHY’S FAULT
Sources close to the leadership of the NUW are distancing themselves from the maneuvres, arguing the effort is being initiated by HSU “executive president” and trade union millionaire Kathy Jackson, with the backing of her political mentor Senator David Feeney.

However, those friendly with Feeney, strongly deny this, saying he knew nothing at all of Jackson’s latest salvo, timed to generate the ALP the maximum amount damage prior to Saturday’s poll, and making it clear that she acted alone.

WHAT DID FEENEY KNOW AND WHEN DID HE KNOW IT
Those suspicious of Feeney, who would strongly support the highly able SDA Senator, Prime Ministerial confidante and Parliamentary Secretary Jacinta Collins in any Senate preselection spat, say this is disingenous crap and that of course he knew.

While all of these nuanced positions are designed to perhaps avoid association with a bad act, they are also a little cute by half. Jackson, however mad she appears at times, at least has the courage of her convictions and doesn’t seek to duck and cover when the bombs are dropping.

THE CONSIGLIERE
In this case though, the argument put forward by her favoured and long-time lawyer David Langmead who has defended the Jacksons in many legal scrapes and entanglements is almost apologetic in its tone. We include a copy for the public amusement.

In the accompanying cover letter, it is clear that the union secretaries, increasingly referred to as the “four Mullahs of the Taliban faction”, have had their signatures “cut and pasted” on the document. We can only hope all were consulted before the letter was sent, our inquiries on that subject didn’t go anywhere this morning.

BACK AT THE FRONT
Party insiders in Broadmeadows who haven’t been thrilled about McGuire’s candidacy say that he’s done a good job of getting around the electorate and has kept things quiet. An absence of a high-profile rebel candidate, like Phil Cleary, means that McGuire should comfortably prevail on Saturday. No thanks to the four mullahs, whose politics is ostensibly moderate (except for the Maoist at the CFMEU) but whose tactics appear increasingly extremist and self-defeating. With their parliamentary representatives urging a “reconciliation” between the two moderate factions, and the four mullahs acting in this way, it seems there is a surprising absence of co-ordination and even communication among them. And while a Taliban bullet can sting, it’s disunity that’s death in politics.

MANY COULD LEARN FROM THE CLASS ACT
Pointing to a better way was the person who lost the most from the recent Broadmeadows preselection, popular Hume councillor and former mayor Burhan Yigit who told The Aged today:

Asked about the fracas, Yigit says he is concerned about the process, not the byelection or the candidate. ”I know Frank and he’s a fine man,” says Yigit. ”It’s the process that I’m angry about, not Frank.”

We told you Burhan was a good bloke. And, indeed, a class act exhibiting a great deal of grace at a time when most would be lashing out. It’s enough to make you wonder whether those still undermining McGuire’s candidacy ever had Burhan’s best intentions at heart or were perhaps pushing another agenda rooted in self-aggrandisement, vengeance and wrecking.

  5. Sir cum

    Burhan might sound like he is over it but behind the scenes he is filthy on his fellow Cr Ros Spence for shafting him. Frank has been silenced by her and she does all his phone enquiries so that the media cant get a story out about his dealings with Hume Council.
    Graeme Marr could be the Maverick here as he has polled very well I am told at the pre polling booths.
    A true Labor man not a member just like Frank.

    Vex – check out this:
    new govt interferring with Opening of Parliament. Taking over and holding back procedings….pre xmas and really not their business.
    New govts….don’t get involved in Parl openings.
    New govts should not be paranoid and dictate apolitical appointments within Parl pressuring Presiding Officers.
    how is it they have time for this and yet plenty time to head hunt staff by kapel and co..reject them and give Ministers no power and / or unhappy, with distasteful interviews as expereienced by a folk who are left humilitated and speechless for being ‘called in’ to be interviewed. Stalin is right. Micro managing is right. Big picture and the state is right…..but no to be heard or found. premier does not equal dictator

  7. Brimbank Party hack

    Long live the Taliban in victoria,if it means the dictatorship of appointing not pre-selecting no-hopers is finished.Why join the ALP? only ill informed people join,the smart one are leaving in droves.They are sick of being used.All those deputy liberals,sorry,I meaned antilaborites do is suck up to BIG bussiness and stuff the working class.The Greens sound better,even trough they are nutcases

  8. Captain (Retired) Adrian Jackson, ASM (SE Asia), DFSM & Clasp, ADM

    Frank was pictured in the press today at Broady rail station with his election poster A frame. Travelling from Brighton daily to get there will mean he will have to get up in the dark. Is he travelling by rail from Brighton or is he using Eddies Rolls Royce

  9. unfair to real victims

    Calling the ramshackle scandal ridden HSU the ‘Taliban’ of the ALP is grossing misleadling and belittles the trauma endured by the many victims of the real Taliban.

    Kathy has never cut off the noses and ears of innocent victims – although she must have been tempted to remove another part of one former official’s anatomy.

  10. HSU

    While the HSU is unfairly depicted as the Afghanistan of unions it is clearly more like Greece of Australian unions.

    Broken and bankrupted by immoral leaders.

    What a pity a rescue package can not be put in place for Australia’s most dis-functional union.

  11. Short Changed

    Maybe the day Little Willie Shortpants realises that the ALP is not not his private property to be used as a vehicle for unwarranted elevation to political deity ( or more likely, the day he departs the ALP altogether), will be the day that other people might feel they have a stake in the organisation.

    Unless this happens, the ever increasing throng of disenfranchised in the ALP are unlikely to play alonf with Shortie’s games.

  12. Off with his toe

    re: unfair to real victims

    Are saying that Kathy wanted to remove Jeff’s big toe?

    Pissing in the pockets of priveleged “celebutantes” and giving them a free ride , is beautifully summed up by the Broady train travellers responding to Frank’s 5 minutes of campaigning , “why bother you’re going to win” in what will almost certainly become a fait accompli , those workers boarding that train have no choice , ALP members never had the choice , who are the real Talibans?

  15. Brighton's battler is giving hope in broady

    Frank is a real example….Now Every kid in Broady can aspire to be elected to represent their community if….

    • their brother becomes media super star
    • they sell out and move to brighton
    • they fall in with power elite of ex-Xavier boys
    • they are useful to bayside developers.
    • do not join the ALP.

    Thanks for connecting all the dots.

    Ed, Ed, can I succeed you as President of Collingwood, just like the ludicrous Malthouse/Buckley succession plan? No Frank.

    Ed, Ed, I’ve got a great script, it will be an Academy Award winning movie, it’s called ‘Joffa The Sequel’.
    You’re retarded Frank.

    Ed, Ed, can I appear on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire and get the questions in advance?
    I think you might still f**k it Frank.

    Ed, Ed, can you get me a gig as the King of Moomba?
    You’d scare the kids Frank.

    Ed, Ed, can you get me preselection for the ALP?
    Well they’ll take any d*ckhead, I’ll call my mate Billy The Short Thing and get you a guernsey. Now lick your dish Drover.

    And the ALP wonder why voters are turning away in droves.

    The sad irony in that last post is that joffa has possibly done more community work with welfare groups & real strugglers with strong connections with the indigenous community , something the ALP stood for a long long time ago BS (before shorten)

  22. The 4th estate

    Its gets better. One of the signatories sent in a proxy for this Thursday’s meeting dated the 10th of February, much earlier then the letter he allegedly signed stating his concern that a meeting needed to be called to deal with McGuire’s membership. Was that signature cut and pasted?

  23. Anon

    What a load of steaming ones Andrew.

    Its obvious what side you write for.

    The process was de-legitimate. The candidate is still not even a member, and our federal vote is down to 32%. We lost in WA, nearly SA and lost in VIC recently. We are going to lose in NSW also and are in long term structural decline.

    Self-serving affection won’t save the party of working parties. Getting back to our grassroots will. So pull the finger out.

  24. zoomie

    Bet Eddie and Frank nearly chocked on their caviar last night watching the 9news hearing the Independent Graeme Marr push the line about Brighton vs Broady.Dont underestimate the feeling of the electorate as Phil Cleary showed once.

  25. WARNEY FOR THE ALP

    Many eligible people we know grew up in Brighton voted Labor and were not approached to stand in Broady
    So its very clear ALP play favorites they are by far the least democractic orgnisation in the country
    suggestion how about Shane Warney for next ALP state candidate well he is good at bowling maidens over, he is a celebrity and he would get a lot of publcity for the ALP and he is far better looking than Gillard!

    I am disgusted with the behavior of my beloved ALP. I have been pushing their propoganda for years on any idiot prepared to listen and I got the arse for Liz Beattie in a fair contest but my loyal subject Burham has been FUTA BY THE PARTY and given his marching orders.
    Still, Frank Mcguire is a true believer in social justice and learning and we were both able to get the learning centre up and running. I hope that gets me a job with him now that Theo is sucking on a Oyzo cocktail in retirement.

  42. fallen stars are the new light on the hill

    With the Greens eroding the under 35 vote and the Abbott’s Fortress Australia slogans grabbing the votes of early school leavers (e.g Queenslanders) the Labor Party is being squeezed from two sides.

    Hitching itself to celebrities and near celebs is the only way forward.

    Perhaps pre-selection should be linked to appearances on dancing with the stars or Idol.

    Even fallen stars could give this beaten and battered Labor crew a lift.

    In today’s Herald Sun (18 Feb 11) it says Frank McGuire claimed Hume Council payed him $20,000 to lobby the Commonwealth Government for a $8 million global learning centre in Craigieburn.

    He claims he was to be payed $200,000 but Hume Council says a council officer did the presentation to government and the local Commonwealth MP helped get the project funds too.

    Being a Broady boy I would have though he would have done the lobbying for free.

    I am always suggesting improvement to my Port Phillip Council and some get implemented but I do not put my hand out.

    I just watched the new Opposition Leader of Victoria interviewed outside a polling station in Broadmeadows. Has he got a back problem or is he just got bad posture.

    He is really hunched over like the hunch back of Notre Dame (well not that bad but pretty close). Get your shoulders back, stomach in and walk tall comrade just like Big Ted does.

  60. Captain (Retired) Adrian Jackson, ASM (SE Asia), DFSM & Clasp, ADM

    Frank McGuire appears to have won Broadmeadows on primary vote so far (54%) but the ALP has had an 8% swing against it which does not reflect well on the ALP nor Frank McGuire.

  65. Writing on the wall

    The greens are the real losers in this byelection. The result saw a swing against them even though the Liberals didn’t stand a candidate. They are going backwards at each election over the last 6 months. I can’t wait to see how the Green political machine will spin that as a positive as they always do. They’ll probably quote some stupid 2PP figure and say they’re now the real opposition to Labor in Broady.

  66. Captain (Retired) Adrian Jackson, ASM (SE Asia), DFSM & Clasp, ADM

    Yes your are spot on the Greens did poorly (6%) but on the 2PP on the VEC website they get about 23%. Which is crazy VEC as Franks pathetic 54% primary vote does not need to go to preferences.

    The Independent that got about 23% primary might have some Libs or ALP types knocking on her door to join their parties perhaps too – good effort

  67. That's hot

    Sex party outpolled greens very funny

    Sex party out pols Greens.MAAAAAAWAHAAAA. As Teddy would Say.Shoved it right up the Bastards. 53.8% what a legend Frank.Burhan has told the Turkish news he would have would have got at least 65% They said only 65%.One more election and its all over Commrades. Will be good to see a range rover driving around the streets of broady till the next election.

  69. jungswirth

    Now I am furious at this result because my fellow comrade Burham would certainly have done better then Frank. How bad are the ALP going when Graeme Marr an Independent can poll better then the greens.The Libs did a great job right under Daniels nose with their choice candidate who ran as an Independent! It’s not over yet as there could be some interesting events to follow such as VEC’s handling of the election and the over exuberance of Frank trying to make sure the ladies voted for him not to mention the 200k consultancy fee that snuck out into the media on Friday There might be a few bruised arms today.

  70. Gazza fan club

    Gary the collapse of Alp vote might help you back on to Hume council . just talk independent style and bag frank’s attempted $200k consultancy. ALP club Feds are so outa touch you have to pay their mates to get money in safe labor seats. Whoops hope you did not vote for that one gazza.

    The liberals anti labor smear unit, IBAC has just got another labor butt to kick.

    It will not matter if frank is innocent – a public unit like this will at the very least smear him as greedy and grasping and labor machine in Hume as self serving.

  83. IBAc a two term winner

    If libs are smart they will use leaks from IBAC probes to smear senior past labor figures over next 3 years.

    The can then announce just prior to next election their intention to refer certain matters to further investigation and prosecution.

    Then voters will be given a choice: can labor be trusted to investigate their own mates?

  95. What's is the price of Taliban silence?

    The new Liberal government has come as a shock for many Taliban MPs with their factional operators snouts firmly in the trough.

    What do you do for instance if your chief ethnic warlord is getting $12,000 per year from the Victorian Multicultural Commission?

    This becomes even more pressing when the said individual’s numbers (not stacks) are allegedly propping up the Preston ALP branch.

    The answer has been somewhat embarrassing with Labor figures lobbying the Liberals to keep their key ALP players on the VMC.

    This lobbying has been successful so far. But the question Labor members are asking about this Taliban triumph is at what cost this dependency on Liberal patronage?

    Given the normal low level of activity of many Taliban MPs it is difficult to say if any have now stopped fighting the Liberals in a desperate attempt to get cash for their key ethnic recruiters (‘branch stackers’ is such a vulgar term).

    But many ALP members are now asking is $12,000 the price of silence for a Taliban MP?

  96. the wild brumby

    Comrades what has happened to my beloved ALP since my minor mishap that gave the Libs total control.
    A non member gets to inherit my seat albeit with a large reduction in support, and my loyal Turk mate Burhan is now gunshy because of the way his fellow members shafted him.
    Perhaps he should consider setting up a branch in Niddrie as it wont be long before my boverboy Hullsy pulls the pin and enjoys the fruits of his Labor pension.
    I know I am and it is amazing how far a couple of million dollars can go.Gee I feel for the voters of Broady who helped me get it but then again I dont think there are any rocket scientists living there and generally they are politically stupid so that accounts for why they voted for me as you cannot put brains into idiots can you!! My new motto is now “charity begins at home”.
    Sounds good doesnt it.

  97. anon

    You are right about Broady. The collective IQ of the electorate is down at the level of a piss ant. All the locals care about is welfare benefits, cheap booze, Winnie Reds and pokies. The only booming business is the tat shop and the moccasin retailer.

  98. Captain (Retired) Adrian Jackson, ASM (SE Asia), DFSM & Clasp, ADM

    anon – you may be correct as 9.5% of Broady voters voted informal. With 9 candidates and 10 fingers per voters (no 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9) it should not be to difficult to place the numbers besides the candidates – but no not for the Broady informal voters.

    In relation to Frank McGuire being parachuted into the seat as the ALP candidate; with a 8% swing against the ALP perhaps a local candidate could have done better after all. Perhaps Kath Jackson (no relation) could have done better for the ALP.

  99. Anon

    Kathy Jackson doing better – you have to be joking. She would not lower herself to associated with anything/or anyone from Broadmeadows. That is why her union is so stuffed – she thinks she is above the members, so much so it is surprising she does not wear gloves when she goes out to the membership

    Funny though, when kids get caught beheading kittens, they come from Brighton not Broady. Better people there than some of you have ever met.

    Adrian, Daniel Andrews would whoop you in a game of golf in a second, and has more brains, heart and soul than any politician I have ever met. Sorry he doesn’t have a posture that you are attracted to.
