The vision thing (letter)

by Brain Handley

News Weekly, March 22, 2003

John Brogden's political star flickering on the NSW election horizon is likely to fade quickly like that of so many other "dripping wet" small-l Liberals around the country.

The only long term hope for the Liberals is to start believing in something, or find yourself a Menzies to start a Liberal Party "Mark II" .

John Brogden's vision thing of a party addressing issues of, multiculturalism, euthanasia, equal age of consent and drug reform, may be progressive in his eyes, but they will be regressive on election day.

Brian Handley,
Moe, Vic
