Mutual concerns

News Weekly, January 25, 2003
Sir,

One is inevitably a poor advocate in one's own defence so I will content myself with correcting one error in Robert Stove's evaluation of Dry and of me (News Weekly, December 14, 2002). I and I think a majority of, but not all, Dries were always pretty much as one with Bob Santamaria and the National Civic Council on family policy.

We disagreed on the consequences of aspects of micro-economic policy. Even there we shared common ground, as we were both concerned with the moral as well as technical aspects of the policies.

As I wrote on aspects of family policy after consultation with Mr Santamaria I thought my views on the topic were fairly well known in NCC circles.

The book omits to mention many very worthy people besides Ken Baker, whom I hope is well aware of my high regard for him, and most of the history of the IPA is indeed, as Mr Stove puts it, airbrushed out. The subtitle promises defence of economic freedom, not the IPA. There are better people than I am, not least Baker, to write the history of the IPA.

I am of course sorry to learn that I was such an extremely bad employer and apologise to those whose names I spelt incorrectly.

John Hyde,
Perth, WA
