For a party full of atheists and agnostics, the Labor Party has a habit of falling for the messiah complex. They think their Leader is a genius who will save them. Mostly the parliamentary party members have a habit of picking duds. Here are some of the Great Duds of Labor – what might be called a Pantheon of Incompetence. Have I missed anyone? One shouldn’t be surprised at so many duds – most of the Parliamentary Labor Party are duds so the chance of picking a dud is high. But don’t forget – each of those pictured here were thought to be fantastic saviours and representatives of the Labor Party – these were the men and women that the Party imposed upon the electorate.
