Australian Left Review



What do you think of reactions to your previous interview with ALR? Clearly the most favourable reaction came from militant, progressive workers in the factories and other workplaces and from radical students. A wide range of people and organisations were openly hostile to the general concepts enunciated in the interview. The most vitriolic attacks came from the employers’ organisations, the press and the rightwing of the Labor movement. Also critical were many senior union officials, including some communists and other so-called “left” officials, many of whom I consider to be well and truly entrenched as part of the status quo in Australia.
