Commentary on J-Bro's Departure ...

Naturally, the blogosphere has gone into overdrive ... wsacaucus is already off and speculating on who will replace Broggers (a tip, gentle readers, the former Fatty O'Barrell hasn't been pounding the treadmill for all these months for nothing ...)

Speculation has also been mounting as to exactly why this has all happened now, and not exactly one month ago, when the infamous boozy incident actually occurred. It was around this time that Carl Scully was rapidly losing the support of the Terrigals (which all us left Bloggers would be discussing at greater length had not the J-Bro resignation not sprung up).

Here's one important clue. Brogden went so far as to criticise the President of the NSW Young Liberals, one Alex Hawke, for ensuring the rumours of his indiscretions were heard as far and wide as possible. The charming Mr Hawke is profiled in the Monthly article so horrifying and magnificent that I'll just have to link it again.

Now, let's be pragmatic here. I've got no doubt that John Brogden has made comments and carried out actions as dopey and indiscreet as the one in question on numerous occasions. I'm sure every pollie does. Which ones do and don't get into the public domain is a combination of dumb luck, fate, and occasionally, personal vendetta. Cheryl Kernot and Gareth Evans know this all too well. So, perhaps too, does John Brogden.

Sam over at QueerPenguin reckons the Lieberals are going to see a shift to the nutty side of conservative given Hawke's involvement in Grogden's fall.

I sure hope so. I reckon Aussies will have very little of homegrown neo-cons at the ballot box.

I think it's a sure cert. And possibly not a bad thing, because I honestly don't think Australians wants neo-cons. Then again, I could be horribly, horribly wrong ...

I wonder what will become of all those disaffected Lib Lefters? Will they go and invigorate the Democrats or infiltrate the Greens? Now there's a scary thought.

I followed your link to The Monthly article and discovered the ALP's eHerald.

How long has this been published? It certainly needs more publicity.

Do you mean how long has The Monthly been published, or the Labor eHerald?

The Monthly has been around for about three issues, and it's a terrific read - very similar in format to The New Yorker. The Labor Herald has been around for yonks, but only went online a few months ago.

As far as I'm concerned, both could do with more publicity - there's a lot of food for thought in each.
