Yesterday the Galaxy Poll suggested the Prime Minister’s campaigning on Labor’s links to unions is falling on deaf ears.

So what did he do?

He warned about union power in his weekly radio address.

He warned about union power in a doorstop.

And he warned about union power in a speech.

He’s repeatedly saying over and over “Kevin Rudd wants to get rid of AWAs”.

No sh-t, Sherlock? Isn’t that one of the reasons why the ALP had a ten point two-party-preferred lead on you yesterday?

Arthur Sinodinos is obviously missed, and the PM could get better political advice from the remaining inhabitants of the Big Brother house than he is currently getting from his highly-paid minders.
