Mr Tony Fitzgerald AC QC on the erosion of democracy under the Newman Government

‘Effective, functioning democracy is unachievable while the public is uninformed or misinformed. Australian democracy is now not merely or even substantially a contest between political parties and their policies but an invisible struggle between the general public and an increasingly professional, deeply cynical, “win at all costs” political class.’
