The big news today is that former Australian PM Malcolm Fraser has resigned from his own party, the Liberal Party.
I have rewritten my blog post on the Liberals and the new version was published on The Punch just now, including reflections on my dinner with Mr Fraser.
The main point I am making is that liberal and conservative politics in Australia has hopeless intellectual leadership. Climate change requires them to shift so they should take the opportunity to reinvent and compete in the policy space left open to them by the ALP’s lack-lustre commitment to climate reform.
