Once was warrior

Janet Albrechtsen laments the Liberal Party’s abandonment of compulsory individual contracts as a retreat from a “philosophical battle” (“Tony Abbott, a warrior is not afraid to come out fighting”, The Australian, 28/9). She needs to accept that this battle is lost: the Liberals have finally been “dragged to the centre” by the people’s wisdom. Voters have already rejected the absurd notion that an individual can negotiate on an equal footing with a corporation. Had it persisted with this extreme ideology, the Liberal Party, not Labor, would have found itself “on the wrong side of history”.
