I read in the Sydney Morning Herald today something that made me stop and read it again. The Workplace Relations Minister, Joe Hockey, was talking about the Opposition Leader, Kevin Rudd. He was berating Rudd’s supposed stand-off with Union leaders about new industrial relations policies.

Joe Hockey

According to the Herald, “Mr Hockey dismissed the the so-called friction between Mr Rudd and the unions as a B-grade movie designed to make Mr Rudd look tough.”

Kevin Rudd

However, Joe Hockey’s next quote had me wondering just what it was that Kevin Rudd and the unions were really up to:

“They get the union bosses to stick their heads up and Kevin Rudd on steroids comes in and whacks them off.”

He does what?
