Election 2007 - Keating torches Costello and his IR fear and smear

Costello & Howard, and the multiple dwarves, have been out and about traducing trade unionism with growing stridency and just a note of hysteria.

We always knew the Coalition would fight a dirty campaign, because the Aussie electorate seems to be waking up to the fact that nation builders they ain't.

Paul Keating came out of hibernation again today to launch Greg Combet's campaign and to excoriate Heckle & Jeckle for doing little more than ride on the back of the economic construct and labour accords of the Hawke/Keating years. He painted a picture of an indolent Costello in his hammock, casting an eye on the budget figures from time to time. This was vintage Keating and well worth the price of admission.

Perhaps it is not hard work that causes Costello to routinely look as though he is about to drop off in QT and to look like he has been burning the candle at both ends. Perhaps it's what he imbibes whilst in the hammock that is the real problem, and maybe that would explain his bizarre behaviour at the 'Great' debate....hmmm!
