Why Doesn't Labour Understand Business?

Abridged from National MP, Murray McCully's latest newsletter

"How many teachers or lecturers does it take to make a Labour Government? The answer, officially sanctioned by leading government relations firm Saunders Unsworth, publishers of the Guide to the 2005 Parliament, is 23.

That would be 23 teachers or lecturers out of a total caucus of 50. There are 28 former trade unionists in the Labour caucus. So, even allowing for some who qualify for both lists, that's still a fairly telling story about the culture and focus of the current Labour Government."

How many free enterprising, small business supporting, risk taking, trade unionists or teachers do you know?

Our PM, Deputy PM and Finance Minister must know a lot about business. After all, they are in charge of this capitalist country. Oh, wait a minute, I forgot, neither of them have EVER worked for a business.

The party that has the highest percentage of its caucus having experience running successful businesses is the Greens.
