Tony Abbott says “Workers will find that I am their best friend”

Tony Abbott doing his press conference at Andrews Meats, Lidcombe, Sydney, has said “Workers will find that I am their best friend”.

Well at the very least he will encourage business which will make jobs more secure.

What that means is if he ever becomes Prime Minister, he will cut penalty rates, working conditions, low wage, unsafe work places, flexibility (to be fired), no union protections, no protection from your wages being stolen… and prison time for attending union meetings (sound far fetched? just ask Ark Tribe, who went to prison under laws to make construction industry more flexible, but not safe) sounds just like WorkChoices.

These claims are just the wild imaginings of a paranoid extreme leftist who is so mired in the tenets of Marxist ideology that they are unable to realise that the world has moved on form the workers vs the bosses dichotomy.

Why is this necessary? To save us from a couple of cents carbon “tax”? Working peoples wages will be slashed by a third – as they are in Greece – because this is the economic model that Tony Abbott thinks is good for business.

This claim is so full of hyperbole that it is hard to distinguish 99’s rant from something dreamt up to satirise the far left.

And if you’re a working person who truly believes that Abbott will deliver higher wages… take one look at who he is making promises to – Gina Rinehart, Clive Palmer – these people will never have the best interests of the working class and small business owners at heart.

The working people were promised by Julia Gillard that “there will be no Carbon tax under a government I lead” yet we now have a rather useless carbon tax burdening the entire economy so its a bit rich for the author to insist that the voters would trust the current government’s word more than a commitment made by Abbott who has had the good sense to notice what electoral poison it is to say one thing to be elected only to do the opposite once you are in the lodge.
Finally even a devote of the politics of the left should make an effort to think of politics through a lens bigger than their own ideology if they expect to be taken seriously.
