Victoria's Worst Kept Secret

Surprising absolutely nobody, right wing AWU secretary and Victorian ALP president Bill Shorten has announced his intention to challenge the preselection of Bob Sercombe, who holds the safe seat of Maribyrnong. Shorten has been heard attempting not to blow his own trumpet high and low for the past several years so finally emitting the triumphal blasts must be an enormous relief for the ambitious union head. Expect a Malcolm Turnbull-like lunge for the leadership to soon follow ...

UPDATE: Michelle Grattan suggests that Shorten should go straight to the front bench (expect a lot of factional noses to be knocked out of joint should this occur) and suggests that the upcoming Victorian pre-selections will be `messy'. Understatement of the year, what with the gentlemen's agreement to keep even the stickiest factional battles out of the courts being broken last year, the long running feud between senators Kim Carr and Stephen Conroy showing no signs of abating, and Simon Crean reportedly battling to hold on to his pre-selection. Let's not forget that whatever deficiencies Crean had as leader, his loyalty to the party and many of its members is hard to fault. Inglorioiusly turfing a former leader is lousy work, but I'm sure the Victorian Right is more than up to it.

It's no secret that Bill Shorten is the secretary of the Australian Workers Union (AWU), and not the Australian Manufacturers Workers Union (AMWU).

Doug Cameron is the secretary of the AMWU.

Bah ... I knew I'd mess those two up. I've had some tech issues with my blog and haven't been able to fix this up, hence it is noted down here in the comments.
