Labor must finally break its addiction

Unless Labor can wean itself off the drug of opinion polls, the leader it chooses in coming days won't last long enough to have a chance of election victory in six years.

The odds are that the next leader of the Labor Party, in order to be the next Labor prime minister, will have to be opposition leader for at least the next six years.

The size of the Coalition’s victory and the fact that Labor managed its lowest primary vote in 100 years more or less ensures that Tony Abbott has secured at least two terms of Coalition government.
