Gasping Coalition : Comments

By Scott Prasser, published 20/9/2006

John Howard take heed: you cannot run a national party if your state branches are broke, lack members, experience, and are internally divided.

I can't help but agree.

Springborg would have been a better choice - yes he strikes the urban voters as the farmboy from out west, but that is the nature of the National party. As the political landscape changes, he would have been superceded by a liberal.

Jeff Seeney was probably the worst choice the nationals could have made. He is not keen to pursue a close relationship with the liberal party, and he strikes many as being too aggressive, especially after those raucous incidents in parliament.

Horan, Simpson, Copeland.... all would have been a better alternative.
