surely the fact that we've described it as ``Work Choices Lite'' would
indicate that we think it's better than Work Choices. But the real
question is, do you think that Labor's IR policy is a good one? Isn't
it true that it retains aspects of the Howard government's IR
legislation? If you were writing Labor's policy, is it what you would
have come up with? Or do you think there are some serious problems
with it? And in that case do you think it's better to explain what the
problems are with Rudd's policy or should we just hush them up and
pretend they don't exist? You don't make it clear whether you think
that there is a problem with our analysis of Rudd's IR policy or with
our criticism of it.
