The pendulum and the pit — Faulkner, the election and the exhaustion of mainstream politics, part deux – The Stump: "With the resignation from the Ministry of John Faulkner, a great part of what was left of the Left has left the centre of the ALP. Faulkner returns to the backbench from a brief and one suspects not particularly happy time as War Minister, although it says ‘defence’ on the letterhead. We can’t know what he really thinks of the futile, directionless, meaningless war in Afghanistan. He’s a genuinely good man, but he’s also been a good party man, trotting out the war against terror line."
