36. I understand, except that I think we're talking about pie here, not misery. That's the vision thing,

which I think Labor must have an intrinsic role in formulating. For that we need authentic Labor reform, something along the lines sketched in my post #35 here, which is why I brought up this point about PWM in the first place.

I like this point about why PWM appear to be "voting against their best interests". I expect that I will use that, but I fear that it can apply to any other ethnic group too, which means we now need to turn "Let's make a deal for me/mine" into "Let's make a deal for EVERYONE, even those _____________ who don't like me" and that adds up to Labor that's far far different from what we see out there right now.
