A fine riposte

As noted, ever since Crosby and Textor said "attack the fact unions are involved in the Labor party" the Libs have been singing at every ... single ... opportunity. Look at Howard. He should have it tattooed on his fucking expansive forehead to save himself some breath.

Anyway, he was at it again today.

Hooray. Evil unions - hissss (cue Hollywood silent era villain of top hat mustache clad man tying vulnerable swing voter to railroad track).

But what of the Howard front bench? Well according to Sharon Burrows of the ACTU "16 of the Government's 30 ministers were lawyers, including the Treasurer, Peter Costello, and the Education Minister, Julie Bishop, who represented employers against workers, while others, such as the Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane, were officials of employer groups."

Yes that's right. They represented the bosses fucking workers over. Sure there was some give and take but at the end of the day some of those Libs in their previous experience were were on the opposite ideological divide to unions.

Presumably representing business in an effort to pay their workers the smallest amount possible is a saintly fine thing to do, and standing up for workers is evil and dastardly.

Am I the only one that finds this line of attack warped?

    Hell no! Especially when you look at what unions have achieved for ordinary Australians... compare with the achievements that a bunch of selfish careerists who started out in law simply to get a leg up into politics have made. We're going backwards thanks to those despicable sods.

  2. I wish the ALP would come out and hammer that home.
