At federal level, no matter what's going on with Labor I don't know if I could bring myself to vote or preference the Libs.
Despite being an actual party member for a while, I've only voted Labor once myself, which was in the last federal election with Latham in charge. I doubt I'll go ALP first next federal election with Beazley in charge, but I'll always preference them ahead of the Coalition, for obvious reasons.
