Andrew Wilkie thinks Tony Abbott tolerates “racism that eats at the Liberal party” #auspol

The member for Denison, Andrew Wilkie, was elected with 81.5% of the preferences of Liberal party voters.

If the preferences went the other way, Wilkie would not have prevailed.

And yet Wilkie persists in suggesting that party is racist or condones racism despite all evidence to the contrary.

He has never apologised for or withdrawn these offensive remarks. Can he reasonably expect Liberal party help if he puts his hand up for re-election later this year?

  3. Um, if there had been a 2CP round between Wilkie and the Liberal candidate, he would have romped home with close to 75% of the 2PP vote.

  4. Wilke’s not saying anything we don’t know already. How can the Liberal Party not be perceived as racist with a racist as a leader? And yes, it is perceived as a sexist party because of the same reason. The party has spoken, and decided decent people (like Malcolm Turnbull) were not fit to be leaders, only populists are able to appeal to the traditional base of the party – the rich and the rednecks alike.

  5. Not only racists vote for liberals, but all racists vote liberal

  6. More racists vote for the ALP than vote for the Liberal Party. The ALP’s traditional full-time male blue collar unionized base vote may be shrinking but it still represents the biggest grouping of powerful unions and the membership of those unions (especially the leftist ones) is notoriously anti-immigration and anti-integration.

  7. For evidence of racism in Liberals look no further than their current Internal smear campaign against inga.
