      Pseudo-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.
