Not surprisingly, Mr Combet thought Bastard Boys was just fine, a fairly accurate version of events with a few fictional flourishes.
But he did feel Prime Minister John Howard got off too lightly.
“I think the Government gets off very lightly, given that they concocted the whole scheme and John Howard personally signed off on it.”
Mr Corrigan says it’s not only the unions and Mr Combet who escape scrutiny in the series.
Yesterday he told Sydney’s Daily Telegraph, ‘I think the Government gets off very lightly, given they concocted the whole scheme and John Howard personally signed off on it. We have the Cabinet documents, and he signed off on the sacking of the entire work force’.

UPDATE. A lefty notes:
Some of the dialogue [in Bastard Boys] was terrible. I burst out laughing when Lucy Bell, playing Combet’s German girlfriend says ‘Come home and I will read you Das Kapital in German’, and Combet responds ‘I’m getting hard just thinking about it’.
