Sow the wind , reap the whirlwind.
The government of the day deliberately allowed Ansett to fail so that Virgin Blue could lead the Australian travelling public to the sunlit uplands of low-cost deregulated airlines and the nirvana of $ 50.00 fares between Sydney and Melbourne. And nobody joined the dots. Conditions of employment trashed , zero security and an endless chase to the bottom. The a#se was always going to fall out of it eventually when exposed to a crisis. Now it has.
