Who is running the country? (letter)by M. GordonNews Weekly
, February 2, 2008
Our newly government in Canberra seems to have overstated their capacity to control interest rates, fuel prices and the cost of living, not to mention Japanese whaling.
Worse still are the threats from the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Electrical Union (CFMEU) about new industrial action.
How ironic it is, given the Coalition parties' warnings in the last election about the prospect of unions running the government, that we have had no less than Andrew Ferguson speaking out for the CFMEU.
He is of course the brother of federal Labor Government ministers Martin and Laurie Ferguson, and son of a former NSW Deputy Premier.
How quickly things have transpired for the worst!(Mr) M. Gordon,
