Labor Leader,Bill Shorten has said today the Labor Party has learnt its lesson from the disunity of the Rudd/Gillard/Rudd period. “My colleagues and I are determined to be united and for the last two years we’ve been very united and we will continue in that vein.” Said Mr Shorten.
Mr Shorten said the real challenge was back in February when the Prime Minister nearly lost to an empty chair when 39 of his party voted to spill the position without even having a candidate.
“The disunity of Labor’s past is now the current problem of Mr Abbott and his Government.” Stated the Opposition Leader.
Mr Shorten highlighted that when it comes to the Labor Party and its rules that’s a matter for the Labor Party. “I can assure Australians …the Labor Party’s learnt its lesson about disunity.”
“the Federal Parliamentary Labor Party has been more united than at any time in decades.”
