Albanese offers Labor a counter to Turnbull’s polished charms

Paul Williams (The Conversation, 3.12.15) assesses the national Labor leadership, and considers the merits of Albanese against the incumbent Bill Shorten:

‘The plain-speaking, punchy ideological warrior in “Albo”, however, offers voters a new contrast. Throw in some of Albo’s best conservative button-pushing over Islamic State, Syria, public ownership and national security – and he’s the most articulate critic of the government’s decision to lease the Port of Darwin to Chinese interests – and we’ve got a very public job application for Labor’s federal leadership.’
