Letters to the Editor
One Reader, At Least
Just read your WoL editorial. Couldn't agree more. Now, could you just send that message about building Workchoices into a frame for dealing with the whole question of how Howard governs and for whom, to the palukas that are running the ALP campaign? If I hear a breathy reference to 'middle Australia' one more time, I will scream. If I hear one more reference to 'Howard's IR legislation' from a pollie that misses the whole point of this legislative attack on 'Australian values', I will just go mental.
Just what does it take to get these idiots to say what is waiting to be said. I am just beside myself looking at the ''free passes' this government has been given from a timid and unsure Opposition. What is it with these people? Anyway, had my say. Not feeling any better, just a bit relieved that someone else has grasped the nub of the problem!
The sooner we get some people who know how to do the job, into a place where they can do what it takes to actually win, instead of going down to one more loss, the better! Let's hope someone besides the usual suspects actually reads Wol editorials.
But I suppose that would be beneath them. You know. Trade Unions are so passe these days. What we need is a party freed from the shackles of any organised opinion from below, and one where spinmeisters and graduates on marketing can just run free-free of any policy that is accountable to anyone not earning $100,000 pa that is. Bah humbug!
