"But whatgot me genuinely excited this week was that union workers turned out in their thousands in mass rallies around the country to protest the National-Act government's anti-worker laws. They were the biggest in 20 years."
Poor old Matt really does struggle with reality. In a world where a paid job is a privilege not a right, he bravely battles on under the delusion that Unions will be the saviour of the world.

If teachers, actors and any other worker wants to stir up trouble, then when it all turns to custard I hope they realise that they have been well and truly stitched up by the likes of McCarten, Kelly, Gainsford and Malcolm.
The Left had 9 easy years to set us on a path of economic prosperity.
But what did they deliver?
Debt, job destruction, recession and welfare dependency.
