Communism Statement[edit]

What is meant by this statement "Having abandoned Communism and joined the Australian Labor Party," does this imply that Jim Bacon was a former communist. Or it could imply that being a member of a trade union makes him a communist. Can someone explain. Kyle sb 08:15, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

As the article states, he was a Maoist at university. Specifically, he was a supporter and probably a member of the Communist Party of Australia (Marxist-Leninist). Adam 08:17, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

Oh cool. I missed the Maoist line. Thanks Kyle sb 08:59, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

I'm not so sure that we can use that newly added picture. It was tagged with "This is a photograph of a member of the Parliament of Australia from an official government source, and is held under Australian Crown copyright." But he is a Tasmanian, not Australian, member of parliament. -- Barrylb 19:38, 7 May 2006 (UTC)

Honey Bacon[edit]

The article says that Jim Bacon had a spouse named Honey Bacon. Who was Honey Bacon? Apparently his children's mother was another woman...? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Paristhecat (talkcontribs) 10:30, 26 April 2007 (UTC).

Honey Bacon was his spouse, just like the article says. His children's mother could be another woman, but unless this is published by a verifiable source we can't add that here. -- Chuq (talk) 13:07, 26 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello, I can verify this information. I recently published a book of which one chapter focused on Jim Bacon. His wife, Honey was a great source. The mother of Jim's children is Lyn Francis (who he was never married to - only in a defacto relationship) and Jim met and married Honey Hogan later(in the 1990s).
