Attila: Vote Attila
This has got to be a stuff up by the Australian. Under the headline "Greg Combet: Labor should consider ACTU leader for the long haul", which suggests the article is written by Greg Combet, we have this:
Having installed Beazley as federal Labor leader, the party needs to think seriously about adding future leadership talent to the parliament. While some commentators want Queensland Premier Peter Beattie to go federal, a more viable long-term prospect lies in co-opting the ACTU's Greg Combet.
Rather like Bob Hawke, Combet is a clear Labor man widely respected in the general community. Combet's political and intellectual skills, his obvious integrity, and his ability to deliver for working men and women were most recently demonstrated by his handling of the James Hardie compensation case. But the Combet possibility lies in the future.
The amusement value would be endless if a person was actually throwing their hat in the ring by speaking in the third person, but somehow I don't think that is the case.
