Rudd Government Confused Over IR Laws

Penny Wong, originally uploaded by ddbsweasel.

Acting Workplace Relations Minister Penny Wong, criticized The Coalition of being confused over their policy, but the criticism is based on the fact that the ALP's policy is not yet known.

The Liberal party, under Brendan Nelson, has promised to hold the ALP accountable to their election promises. Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop has reaffirmed Mr Nelson's position by saying that the Coalition's policy, after officially dumping Work Choices, would revert to backing laws that existed over the first decade of the former government.

It was then Ms Wong expressed her confusion. "Does she support the previous government's laws, and if so, which ones? Or does she support her leader's policy, which is apparently to support Labor's policy?"

If only the Rudd administration could say what it intended to do, all the confusion would go away.
