      More Gould distortions.

      Compare what Gould says Peter Boyle writes with what Boyle actually
      wrote...

      Boyle wrote nothing even remotely like "no Labor governments have
      ever done anything for the working class", that is, that no Labor
      government has ever introduced reforms that were in the interests of
      working people.

      Why didn't Boyle write this? Because it's obviously untrue.

      In fact, many conservative governments have "done [things] for the
      working class" too! But even in Bob Gould's world that doesn't mean
      that they aren't 100% capitalist parties!

      In short, Gould's post is the same old nonsense.
