The Labor Party’s Betrayal – “Power Without Glory” – Frank Hardy

June 1st, 2011 · No Comments · Australian Labor Party, Democracy, Electoralism, Hypocrisy, Ideology, Means and Ends, Political Fiction, Politics, Progressive Politics

But Frank Ashton knew that this betrayal was not attributable to Catholic opposition to socialisation alone. The betrayal arose, he found himself admitting, from the weakness, corruption and lack of united policy of the Labor Party. These men were not Scoialists: they were merely politicians, many of them basking in the sunshine of Government office for the first time, who looked upon politics as a career.

This was written in the 1940s/50s. The ‘betrayal’ of the ALP is a broken record through Australian history!
