I know the Australian Labor Party is not going to do a Corbyn or a 
Sanders and electrify a mass base with pro-people policies and get them 
to fund its activities with small donations. Certainly a ban on 
political party donations that allows only small donations by citizens 
on the electoral roll is not going to change a party whose 33 years of 
neoliberalism are ingrained into its soul and parliamentary 
representatives.  The ALP is not going to democratise and give power to 
its members because those members are, like the rest of Australian 
society, by and large well to the left of politicians. The task is to 
build a new politics, a politics that puts people first. That is what I 
am trying to do.
