Howard's "WorkChoice" Charade: Too Bloody Stupid For Words

I wasn't going to blog about this, since so many others have in the past 24 hours, but this is just bloody ridiculous:
The Government has stopped using the term 'WorkChoices' to describe the legislation, saying the change of language is designed to highlight the newly introduced fairness test for low and middle income earners on Australian Workplace Agreements (AWAs).

Mr Hockey says the ads, to run this weekend, will be simple and free of spin and will refer people to a workplace information hotline.

But he declined to put a figure on how much the ads will cost.

"We will monitor its success," he said. "It's important that people know where they stand."
Is this the final nail in the Howard leadership coffin? Come on, you spineless Liberal twats!
