So the bloke that gave us PM Julia Gillard, Paul Howes, a Trotskyite come Media Tart is now leaving his 7 year long job as head of the AWU. He states that his reasons are that he has spent his entire life in the Union Movement and he simply wants a break.
He's 32 and he is seeking either further education and a real job in the real world. Good on him but I don't believe it for a second.
He is peed orf because he lost his chance for a Senate seat when Bob Carr left back in 2013 and he has held a grudge ever since. The looming Royal Commission into Union Corruption is fast approaching, so you could not seriously rule that out as a pretty big motivator to this sudden career change for Paul.
Like I said, he gave us Gillard and I for one will never forget that!
