Up late with Ben Harvey: Why Mark McGowan does not owe the Labor Party anything

In Wednesday’s episode of Up Late, Ben Harvey says he does not blame Premier Mark McGowan for his recent rejection of Labor Leader Anthony Albanese and Vice Labor Leader Richard Marles on their recent travels to WA.

The Mark McGowan effect – or lack thereof – continues to haunt Federal Labor on the WA election track.

The popular prime minister, whose influence will have a major impact on voters, was particularly absent in an announcement on Wednesday of a $ 15 million pledge of the Albanian government’s road infrastructure in Neerabup by Federal Labor Deputy Richard Marles and Cowan MP Anne Aly .

It comes after Labor sources told The Sunday Times over the weekend that they were “amazed” and “experimented” with Mr McGowan after his love affair with Scott Morrison last week.

But Ben Harvey says it does not surprise him that Mr McGowan does not show any love for a party that did not do much for him.

“Labor’s d ** k measurement competition continues,” says Harvey.

“One week after dismissing the leader of the Federal Labor Party, McGowan is now dismissing the deputy leader.

“I do not blame McGowan for this … the party never liked him in particular … why should he like the party?

“He has worked his courage for this political movement since he was a child.
