POLITICAL POINTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Tocumwal Guardian and Riverina Echo — 16 May 1913
POLITICAL POINTERS. (By "Elector.") Our Socialist Politicians have always been rubbing into us that the only cme for strikes is to nationalise the industry af fected. "Le/t the State" they say "take over the industry and give the employees proper con ditions and Courts of Arbitra tion and appeal, and strikes will be a thing of the old bad past." This is what the Caucus party yelled when Wade was Premier, and the great coal strike was on. They urged Wade to nationalise some mines, by which they meant that he should sicze someone's .private property- and • let the workers in it get whatever they asked for. The same old cry was heard at the time of the trouble at the Iron works at Lithgow. Only let the State take possession of the works, and Lithgow would be turned into an earthly para dise where the lion would lie down with the lamb. And the Liberals were denounced through the length and breadth of the land^because they were net so foolish as to. lend them selves to such wild-cat and ...
