World Stops Spinning

A University of Melbourne Law School Academic speaks out against the current government.

Well, you could knock me over with a feather.

A great op ed piece appeared in The Age today by Colin Fenwick rebutting the lies that appear in Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry IR advertisements.

The dire economic consequences that they atttribute to scrapping the current IR laws actually relate to scrapping all of the reforms since 1993 when the Keating government introduced enterprise bargaining.

The ads should be pulled from television immediately because they are by far the most misleading and inaccurate political advertisements ever shown on Australian television.

I will say that the last sentence is particularly poorly worded, but those who live in glass igloos should not hold ultimate frisbee contests I guess.

Bravo Colin Fenwick, shame on you ACCI.

I personally remember him being a jerk.

But that wasn't teaching related.
