    Have there been major laws passed recently? Like, serious Labor victories?

    Because I think that the cycle goes something like this:

    Tories are fuddy duddies who say “okay, now let’s stop changing things” and this has started sounding seriously something-ist.
    Labor gets elected.
    Labor passes a bunch of laws rectifying the something-ist policies cherished by the Tories.
    Labor overreaches and passes a couple of laws that are just weird and way out there.
    Tories are fuddy duddies who say “okay, now let’s stop changing things” and this sounds pretty good.
    Go back to the top of the list.Report
