Howard Government defended (letter)


by John R. Barich

News Weekly, July 3, 2004
Sir,

Canberra Observed (News Weekly, June 5) is at it again. Is the Howard Government really on the nose? How can this be when it has, in fact, grasped the nettle of reaffirming the status of marriage as the union of a man and a woman while also opposing same-sex couple adopting children overseas?

While Mr Latham has refused to support the homosexual lobby, except with regard to adoptions, one of his members from Sydney, Ms Plibersek, has indicated her intention to vote against the Howard moves.

Also, one would have thought that falling house prices are a plus for families.

These two developments could explain the latest Newspoll showing the Coalition on 53 per cent and ALP on 47 per cent.

Thank God for the commonsense of the Australian people who are unlikely to let all nine Australian governments be in ALP hands.

John R. Barich,
Claremont, WA
