The Australian - the attack dog of the Australian business community

Barely a day goes by without The Australian attacking some aspect of the new Fair Work regime brought in by the Rudd Government. Their attacks on the union movement are relentless. Leaving aside the obvious bias my big gripe is the fact we've barely had 8 weeks of the new laws yet according to this paper the whole world is going to cave in. Their self-serving survey of bosses was laughable.

In one article the paper says that we're going back to the 1960s. What absolute rubbish. I don't see compulsory unionism. I don't see centralised wage fixing. Yes, we're entering a new era. But it is far more accountable and transparent than Howard's laws. This is what scares the hell out of the business community. They actually have to abide by decent laws!
