Keneally is Labor’s Kryptonite

Keneally is Labor’s Kryptonite. By John Simpson.

Former Labor high-flyer, Kristina Keneally, is a loser. In fact, Ms Keneally has perfected the art of losing. …

Voters are sick and tired of being harangued by political figures whether local, state, or federal. With so many elected representatives, bureaucrats, and political advisers in Australia – it’s hard to escape giving them our attention, try as we might.

Nobody, but nobody does a better harangue than Kristina. Intrusive, carping, and unrelenting are all traits Australian voters are not fond of and yet Kristina excels at all of them. …

  1. She failed as New South Wales Premier (a task which occupied her for approximately 15 months) with Labor suffering a catastrophic defeat under her stewardship in the 2011 state election. …
  2. In December 2017, Kristina again flamed-out while contesting the federal seat of Bennelong. …
  3. The prelude to Kristina’s final disastrous denouement (last night) was her placement in an unwinnable position on Labor’s NSW Senate ticket.

I was always mystified as to why Labor put her in prominent positions. Perhaps because she was female? She was a major vote loser.
