Onya Geoff. But aren't you saying 'heal thyself'. How would such a rule change get through the ALP. Look at the fuss over Crean's piddly changes. What about some intersesting gossip when you're writing an article like 'What is Dean Mighell telling everyone now about his short career as a party wheeler and dealer?' And what about that kid he put up for preselection. Was he old enough to enrol?
