  • "Even worse, the Labor Government has evolved into a self-perpetuating oligarchy whose defining purpose is retaining power. In this moral and intellectual vacuum, the Government functions as the servant of the old corporate establishment and other rent seekers such as the private schools lobby in the case of education, the private health funds in the case of health policy, the roads lobby in the case of transportation and the big polluters and the finance industry in the case of climate change."
    - Kenneth Davidson, Rudd Government an obedient servant of the big polluters, theage.com.au, 28 September 2009.
