‘Support reform or get out of the way’, says WA Liberals president in leaked meeting to resurrect the party

0 48



Wilson said a final draft would be presented for endorsement to the executive and council on June 11, which would then be presented to the party at its July state conference.

He told the meeting it was time for each member of the state executive to decide whether they backed it or not.

“I think that’s an important step on the way forward to rebuilding this party,” Wilson said.

Wilson said if the members couldn’t support the way the party was doing it that they gave him “clear air” to put it to the party.

‘Leaks destroying the party’

During the meeting, Smith and state executive member and former state upper house candidate Michelle Hofmann decried media leaks and social media commentary by aggrieved party members.

Hofmann, who was a part of The Clan’s Whatsapp group, said constant leaking to the media was destabilising and destroying the party.

She said it was an elephant in the room and needed to be dealt with at the next party meeting before it further damaged the party brand.

Smith also called on the state executive to pull aside party members venting their frustrations on social media after the election loss.

He singled out commentary on former Public Services Minister Ben Morton’s loss in Tangney.

“Can we all please not jump on Facebook and almost dance on their grave, it’s not really a becoming thing,” he said.

City of Joondalup councillor Christopher May took to Facebook on Sunday to share a news story about Morton conceding the popularity of Premier Mark McGowan was a significant factor in the Liberals’ election loss.

“Morton still unable to read the room, you had a swing of 13% against *you*, mate. Bye bye,” May wrote in an accompanying message.

Smith also revealed the party was struggling to find volunteers to help clean up signage and to scrutineer the vote count in Curtin.

Smith said the Liberals only had between seven and eight scrutineers at the Curtin count while Chaney’s campaign had 30.
