Alan Kelly knows voters better than Labour luvvies do
Howlin's selection betrays the party's lazy assumptions, writes Jody Corcoran
There is a certain smug satisfaction among Labour luvvies this weekend that they have seen off, for now, the man they call AK47, the inimitable Alan Kelly.
Nothing new there then, because you can be sure the Labour Party will always find something to be smug about.
But the party has little reason for satisfaction these days, so if the takedown of Alan Kelly is as good as it gets, then so be it.
