CANBERRA (Boscutti Report) — Labor Leader Bill Shorten is preparing his team for an early federal election.
Labor has begun putting in place its campaign infrastructure, with plans to ‘hit the ground running as fast as we can without tripping over our own feet’ as soon as Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull calls the next election.
Labor has begun internally recruiting for its communications, policy, targeted seats, legal and advertising units, with preselections in Western Australia almost finished and Queensland expected to follow suit next month.
A spokesman said work had already begun on matching the colour of the ties amongst all male Labor cabinets.
‘We also want to make sure all the female Labor candidates will be on the same page colourwise when the election is called,’ he said.
‘For the ladies, it’s going to be purple shirts and blouses all the way until election day.’
