For instance, the president complained to the US ambassador designate for the UK, Elliot Richardson, about the Wilson government and ordered Richardson to ‘get close’ to the unions in the UK, so 04_Strained_partnership_128-174.indd 145 06/11/2013 13:50 146 A strained partnership? they would not follow ‘disastrous’ policies

Therefore economic value is a consequence of carework, but not its motivation; some carework can and should be performed as waged activity, and should be factored much more closely into social and economic policies than at present, but most carework will always remain informal, performed for reasons of emotional belonging. In short, carework is largely non-employment work and a form of value captured by the term ‘emotional labour

Giving up the right to state welfare, let alone the right to employment (a non-temporary full time job with social security and a decent salary), is reflected in the obsession for reaffirming the ‘right to security’.

According to the report Women 2000, ‘[s]ince the election of the Labour Government in 1997 the Treasury has actively consulted the WBG as part of the Government’s policy of mainstreaming gender issues’ (WNC, 1999:14). The WBG is recommending to the government the establishment of a Parliamentary Committee on Equality that would, among other things, oversee government work on gendering the Budget.

‘Topsy Turvy’, uses, for example, the metaphor of the Antipodes to lament the protectionist economic policies in operation in Tasmania, stating that: ‘Tasmania in geographical position is the antipodes of Great Britain. She is also likely to become the antipodes in many other considerations.’ After listing the numerous instances of antipodal thinking and government in the colony of Tasmania, the letter concludes: ‘Thus the antipodes of geographical position – the world upside down – are politically maintained.’ 30 Depicting Australia as a site of economic and
