51593Re: Australia: Power workers oppose NSW Labor government's privatisation bid
- Feb 28, 2008Pseudo-leftists join the anti-union chorus
Michael Berrell keeps asking his idiot question, on the Green Left
discussion list, demanding some kind statement from me as to whether
members of the Labor Party should campaign for the expulsion of Costa
and Iemma if they don't carry out policy.
More...This is humbug and pure demagogy from Berrell, who makes no
secret of his sympathy for the right-wing, twilight zone,
ex-Trotskyists of the World Socialist Web Site. The WSWS says people
in the trade unions and the Labor Party campaigning to defeat the
electricity privatisation are in some secret way fighting to defend it.
Berrell's oh-so-leftist contribution to the struggle against
electricity privatisation is to demand that we move more or less
immediately to demand the expulsion of Costa and the premier. At this
stage of the battle, that pseudo-demand from Berrell is a diversion
and a disruption, insofar as anyone takes any notice of a chameleon
who support the twilight zone ex-Trotskyists at the same time as
distancing himself from them a bit.
