A New Day for Labor in Australia

Mik Tolochko

With election results in, there will be a new day for labor in Australia. The pro-Bush, Anti-labor Howard governement is finished. In what was supposed to be a close race, labor and its allies lead the way to a landslide victory.

Rolling back the massive anti-labor laws and policies is its next step.

Stay tuned.

Mike is very right. Howard has suffered a crushing defeat, and his support for Bush's policies was certainly a significant factor in that defeat. While the Australian Labour Party has its own dubious history and Australians themselves a deep racist history toward the peoples of the Asia-Pacific region, this defeat is evident that Australians are beginning to understand that their future is tied to the region's economic development and to peace, not to being a neo colonial outpost for rightwing U.S. governments.
