Matt McCarten on Party Funding

I have always rated Matt McCarten, he for sure is no dumb-arse, deluded maybe, but not stupid.

His column today in the HoS is well written and considered and he is the first lefty to admit that Labour's blantant attempt to rort us further was ill-advised and plainly wrong.

His final comment says it all;

[quote]Now Labour gets the worst of both worlds. They won't get State funding through and they get bad press for appearing self-serving.

How dumb is that?[/quote]

Dumb indeed.?
