Welcome to Australia’s wild West

But does he have the stomach for it?

Posted by occidentprone on May 17, 2008

Darren Kavanagh is a brave man – he’s challenging Kevin Reynolds in a CFMEU election in October. Big Kev is ‘morally corrupt’ says Kavanagh. He wants generational change.

Kavanagh claims Reynolds is pushing the builders union towards helping campaigns for independents running in the next state election. And Reynolds’ wife Shelley Archer is an independent MP, having quit the Labor Party after being disgraced.

To be fair, Reynolds denies that’s the case – that there’s no mention of putting money into any such campaign. But he has been state secretary for 35 years and does not concede one tiny bit that Kavanagh has a fair point. 

For readers outside WA, here’s a hint on Reynolds’ profile: he’s a gutsy bloke and image-wise he makes Troy Buswell look like a sensitive new aged guy.

Looks like the super heavyweight is going up against the lamb to the slaughter.
