RIP Malcolm Fraser

20 March 2015

Any visitor to this blog will know that I’m not the Liberal Party’s greatest fan. I think they’re a load of self-serving halfwits actually.

Malcolm Fraser was a Liberal Party PM who came good.  And he came very good.  He was a tireless campaigner for refugees and for Australia’s Aboriginal people.  He ended up so at odds with Liberal Party policy and doctrine that he resigned from the party. 

I’ve met three Australian Prime Ministers – Hawke, Whitlam and Fraser.  At the time, Fraser was PM and I wasn’t that keen on him so I probably wasn’t very impressed and didn’t bend over backwards to be nice to him.

Mr Fraser, I’m sorry.  If I’d known then what I know now I would have treated you with the greatest respect I could muster.
