The New South Wales government is doing Prime Minister Julia Gillard a favour with its attempt to renege on a deal done at the Council of Australian Governments. Of itself the COAG decision on making uniform laws on occupational health and safety is of little interest to most voters and on the issue itself there is not a vote to be won or lost. But there are votes to be had by attacking the extremely unpopular NSW Labor Government on virtually anything. Gillard will benefit by acting tough on this issue and she will benefit even more when Premier Kristina Keneally is trounced at next year’s election.
