Internecine battle minimised

Lateline presenter Emma Alberici sketches a gripping scenario:

The campaign to clean up alleged financial misconduct at the Health Services Union is being taken directly to Canberra.

At the same time, the woman at the centre of the campaign to rid the union of corruption has herself been accused of financial misconduct and been criticised by the union's national executive.

But Monash University politics lecturer Dr Nick Economou is unimpressed:

It’s only because of the link between the union and [Labor MP] Craig Thomson and the fact that the Gillard Government really depends on him hanging onto his seat in whatever circumstance that there’s this great interest in what’s otherwise a fairly minor internecine battle.

Gee, that’s okay then... for a few minutes there I’d been moderately concerned.
