‘Fighting amongst thieves’ has become a Labor pastime lately, it used to be called passing the buck, but things in NSW have gone way beyond that. Well done Eddy, you’ve achieved history. Not one mention of AbbottAbbottAbbott.

It’s spreading: Andrew Bolt, “Don’t mention the war:”
IN a stunning rebuke of a senior minister, the Prime Minister’s office yesterday warned Stephen Smith to tone down his comments after he said federal Labor had been a “drag on” the WA branch.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard was reported to be furious about the Defence Minister’s comment in the wake of the WA wipeout, which follows worse Labor floggings in Queensland and NSW…
In saying Labor had plenty to work on before the federal poll, Mr Smith said: “There’s no doubt we have been a drag on Mark (McGowan) and there’s no doubt we haven’t been helpful.”
One Gillard supporter said “Smith’s comments were not helpful at all,” noting Kevin Rudd supporters had seized on the comments.
“It’s that sort of thing that could ignite the whole thing,” the MP said.
