Strangest headline

Gerard Henderson's SMH column today was headed Unions choose masters over members in carbon tax debate

It is strange in two ways. Firstly, despite commenting on the uniqueness of Australia's unions in supporting action on climate change, at no point did the article assett that their position was determined by the ALP.

But the stranger idea is the implied reversal of roles. After all we are forever being told that it is the unions that are the "faceless" bosses of the ALP. I, of course, blame the non-existent Fairfax sub-editors not Henderson.
