Politics in the Pub debates Qld Labor thrashing

Cairns Politics in the Pub has restarted after a year's break. These semi-monthly discussion forums at the Green Ant Cantina feature guest speakers, panels and discussion on topical issues proposed by various community groups and individual activists.

On May 23, 35 people took part in a lively debate of the question “Where to now after a Labor thrashing?” The speakers included Jonathan Strauss for the Socialist Alliance, ALP activist Elida Faith and Steve Brech from the Greens.

A key theme of the discussion was not to back away from campaigning in the face of the large Liberal National Party state parliamentary majority. Argument ensued about how to express that movement politically.
