The hollowing out of Labour/Labor

From todays Australian Newspaper
Ring any bells
"The Labor apparatus is a superb, slick, clever machine for delivering jobs and patronage to its supporters.
Certain unions exercise disproportionate influence over its deliberations and safe seats are now rotten boroughs doled out to reward faithful apparatchiks.
The branches are moribund and no longer have a genuine say in policy or candidate selection.
No wonder young, energetic idealists and activists of the Left are flooding into the Greens and GetUp!"
