Much like engaging an expensive consultant to tell you exactly nothing and write a lengthy report explaining the full extent of nothing, the empty options for addressing nothing and recommendations for actions that are never enacted, the Federal ALP has finished reviewing Labor's performance during the election campaign of 2010. Steve Bracks, Bob Carr and John Faulkner have come up with a little bit of nothing.
There main findings are, apparently, that the PM should not be permitted to choose the cabinet (a practice initiated under Rudd), and that dumping the emissions trading scheme - an economically and ecollogically stupid policy, which has already been a monumental and expensive failure across Europe - was a big mistake.
That's it guys?
Did we follow the same events during 2010; during the campaign?
The executive have yet to meet, so no official findings released at this time. What's the betting that knifing an elected PM and the ineffectual launch of a "real Julia" mid-campaign don't get a mention in the full report?
