But as the calendar winds down on South Australian
Labor’s annus horribilis, party insiders are expressing
quite the opposite sentiment to the one Thompson

in family conflicts during Christmas and New Years.
Many cases of ongoing conflict are caused by
No one wants to associate conflict with manipulation.
Nor would anyone want to associate manipulation
with a spouse, close friend or family member. But that
aggressive neighbour, critical mother-in-law, gossipy
sibling or needy so-called “best friend” are classic

a sizable proportion of the
cyclists, girls. Today, in good
weather, there are fewer then
