I didn’t want this news to get lost in the white noise of MSM (Main Stream Media) and 140 characters on Twitter wasn’t enough. The first link is the article by James Massola for The Age, that I am quickly discussing.
Workplace relations Minister Eric Abetz has sought to reassure business groups that workplace laws remained a “top priority” for the Coalition. The Coalition believe they have neutralised the ALP and the unions ‘attacks’ in regards to the public’s views on WorkChoices.
“If I might say, that was part and parcel of, if I might say a performance indicator I set for myself, that if people were to chant WorkChoices the public would say ‘Nope, we don’t believe you. This is sensible, reasonable policy’. Labor tried it at the last election and it clearly did not work.”
