George Wright's Address to the National Press Club

National Secretary George Wright addressed the National Press Club about the 2013 Election and Labor.

But the point is, the Labor Party, having learned the lessons of internal division and defeat in the 1960s, could speak to thousands and thousands of people like my mother in a way that touched them intellectually and emotionally because it was focussed on the big issues the nation wanted their politicians to solve.

Too many issues from the past six years of Labor in office remain unsolved for those issues to go away.

And, if like the Labor Party in previous times, Labor can talk about those issues instead of talking about itself, it will reach out and energise the Gen-X and Gen-Y versions of my Mum and Dad.
