Why Labor needs to do badly in WA

A loss in the WA Senate re-run and the upcoming state elections may not be a bad outcome for Bill Shorten. Firing blanks for now could be a boon for him in the long run.

By April 5, Australia will likely be blue, very blue. It looks certain that after the Tasmanian and South Australian elections this weekend, that every state plus the Northern Territory will have a Coalition government.

Bluer still, in the West Australian Senate re-run Tony Abbott is likely to gain enough Senate seats to make good his central promise to the electorate: repeal of the carbon and mining taxes.
