Malcolm Fraser was Prime Minister of Australia from 1975 to 1983. His Government was formed by a coalition of the same two parties which form Australia’s present conservative government.
Fraser was vilified by his opponents during his term as PM, but has since mellowed and become much respected by those on the opposite (less conservative) side of politics, and less popular with his former party.
The Government has just released a report by the Australian Human Rights Commission’s report on asylum seeker children held in detention. The report is damning.
Malcolm Fraser has issued a press release which condemns the government (and by implication the opposition whose policies are similar). Read it and weep!
