RE­FLEC­TION

The Saturday Paper - - The Week Contents -

“At­tempts to make it a more rightwing party have never ended well… Ab­bott’s lead­er­ship was prob­a­bly the only time that the Lib­eral Party in govern­ment pur­sued a set of poli­cies so ide­o­log­i­cally right-wing.”

– Ge­orge Bran­dis

The for­mer at­tor­ney-gen­eral re­flects on the Ab­bott years. If he con­sulted the di­ary he re­leased after years of le­gal bat­tle, he would re­mem­ber he was a min­is­ter in the very same govern­ment.
