News just through that, as expected, Tony Mooney has "won" ALP preselection for the race for Herbert. Well actually, he has been handed the preselection by the party's National Executive.
Don't bother checking The Bulletin's web site for the news - well not for a few hours anyway.
While everyone is a bit focused on the off-shore cyclone right now - I forecast, as a result of the ALP's decision, an extended period of mud flying for the next few months (see, for example, my earlier post)
I'm currently setting-up a book on Mooney losing the seat as a result. Any takers?
