I placed this comment on Weekend reflections about a quarter of an hour ago:

“The High Court has dismissed the challenge to the IR legislation, with Kirby and Callinan(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) dissenting. The government really can’t take a trick can it? Planting a right winger on the court and having him turn on them. You just can’t trust anyone these days, although thank heavens Kirby is still onside with his appointers! The left is so much more trustworthy. It must be their higher sense of ethical behaviour. Or something. “

Callinan was always going to dissent. Kirby was the question mark – if the Commonwealth had cared to make the case that these provisions were justified under international labour law conventions I think he would have gone for them, but it isn’t worth arguing for one judge when you can argue to five.
