Can Anthony Albanese become a constructive builder finding a new way forward? Picture: Keegan Carroll

Anthony Albanese now has a chance to cement Labor as the party of middle Australia, destroy the Liberal party and marginalise the Coalition, but it's a fleeting opportunity. Most critically, Albanese won't achieve this by using the rhetoric of the past. If the new PM persists in portraying himself exclusively as someone who "fights Tories"; if he acts as if the world is still against him, and remains bound within a paradigm of conflict where nothing can be accomplished except by struggle, he will fail.
