How pro-family political parties can win votes (letter)


by Colin Jory

News Weekly, October 30, 2010
Sir,

What a crackerjack issue of News Weekly (October 2)!

I've long said that the publication is better than it has ever been, even in the time of B.A. Santamaria, and warrants a circulation expansion drive.

Perhaps the most important article of all is Stephen Baskerville's one on divorce, "The continuing war on marriage and fatherhood". Even though it is referenced principally to the United States, all its observations apply just as well in Australia.

Something else I've long said is that if the pro-family political parties want to make huge gains in their votes (a prospect which, I suspect, would frighten many of their activists, in the way a small shopkeeper would be frightened if he was suddenly given control of Myers or Woolworths), they will make a sustained and uncompromising assault on the Family Law Act and the Family Law Court, and on the hideous domestic violence racket.

Of all the factors which harm the Australian family and do draconian injustice to individual Australians, nothing remotely compares with these in scope or severity. Effective, sustained campaigns targeted against these evil rorts would guarantee 10 to 20 per cent of the vote to those parties regardless of their other policies.

Colin Jory,
Narrabundah, ACT
