Not resting in peace
Robert Menzies must be the most unquiet corpse in political history. Were he actually to be exhumed, the poor man’s skeleton would doubtless resemble a corkscrew. The reason? Since John Howard first won government, people have periodically observed that the misanthropic philistinism of his and subsequent Liberal governments have caused Menzies to be turning, twisting, rolling, or somersaulting in his grave. And with good reason. No one since Howard, and especially Howard, has been remotely Menzian.
