Ken Wyatt to defect to labor?
Sep 19th, 2018 at 10:57am
 
So far there's only one source from the AFR, but I assume there'll be more on this:

https://www.afr.com/brand/rear-window/labor-held-defection-talks-with-ken-wyatt-...

Quote:
Last month, Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt held secret talks with senior Labor figures (including fellow Indigenous MP and Labor frontbencher Linda Burney) about crossing the floor… for good. Under the Australian Electoral Commission's declared new boundaries, Wyatt holds his Perth seat of Hasluck by just 2.1 per cent. So he's toast. But after changing sides? Hard to say; a forceful protest vote, to be sure, but if the swing to Labor remains cyclonic, he could just be sweet as a nut. Of course, this was all before the new PM coincidentally announced a royal commission into Wyatt's usually dull policy principality.

I could never understand why he joined the Liberal Party in the first place.

I always assumed he's cut from the same centre-right neoliberal cloth of indigenous activists as Warren Mundine. Though admittedly I've not heard him speak much.

I see him in Vic Park quite a bit, and he seems like a nice guy.

Way too nice for the Liberal Party, anyway.

Moreover, he's related to our Labor Treasurer - Ben Wyatt (uncle?).

Sounds like a bit of FAKE NEWS started by the despairing Labor Party which is being dragged under by Scungy little Shorty who is detested by the voters because he wants to QUADRUPLE the cost of power and RESTART the BOATS and STEAL from the PENSIONERS and wreck the housing market and generally stuff things up.

Prepare for an avalanche of FAKE NEWS and Medicare type FRAUDS from Labor and GetUp! as time goes on and Labor's position becomes increasingly hopeless.





Liberal minister Ken Wyatt denies overtures to defect to Labor
By Lane Calcutt • Political Reporter 12:49pm Sep 19, 2018

Aged Care Minister Ken Wyatt has emphatically denied he's been approached to switch to the Labor Party, and that he'd ever consider it.

"At no stage would I contemplate swapping from a coalition party, the Liberal Party," Mr Wyatt said.

"I would not cross over for any political expediency or for personal gain or benefit."

...

Mr Wyatt said he was committed to re-contesting his West Australia seat as a Liberal at the next election.

A newspaper report this morning said fellow indigenous MP, Labor's Linda Burney, had held secret talks with the minister about joining the ALP.

But Ms Burney also dismissed the speculation, describing it as a "flight of fancy".


The last major defection came when the Democrats' Cheryl Kernot joined the Labor Party, over 20 years ago.

...

More fake news.

Seems like the Young Liberals are running short of farts to light. I suggest eating more beans.

Heavens!  The Polly Waffle VIRUS and little Bammy are in a high state of alarm.

As always when alarmed the Lefties quickly scurry into their Sanctuary of DENIAL and console themselves with make believe fantasies.

They will be nervously waiting for GetUp! to tell them what to say and think.
