Malcolm Fraser’s ideas for a new political party

Crikey Insider (26.3.15) reports that right up until the day he died, Malcolm Fraser was working seriously on starting a new political party, to be called Renew Australia.

Crikey exclusively revealed its aims and manifesto:

‘According to a draft “Statement of Values and Purpose” ‘Statement of Values and Purpose’ from January this year, published for the first time today, the party was to focus on social justice, “modern, progressive democracy” and ethical politics. The statement promotes the party as “a new party for a new vision for Australia” and says that Australia needs a new political party because the major parties are united “in advocating policies ever more corrosive of our national spirit of our national spirit of fairness and justice”.’
