Very interesting...Will the party be able to come back, or is the end...?

I don't think we want Assange in politics, with his views.

"Where a national council member begins openly subverting the party's own processes, and asking others to join in a secret, alternative power centre that subverts the properly constituted one, this is not an acceptable mode of operation for any organisation but even more so for an organisation explicitly committed to democracy, transparency and accountability," the statement read.

Welcome Assange to the ranks of the ultra wealty politicians. It seems the old adage is true and power corrupts.

I meant wealthy. It's late and I am tired and this was not what I needed right now. Seems there is no one to trust anymore
