Episode Summary

EDIT
Tony Abbott: Battlelines
AIRED:
Tony Abbott explains his personal political faith and offers it as a way forward for the Liberal and National parties. Starting with an account of human nature and Australian society, Abbott develops a series of political positions that the conservative parties could adopt to rehabilitate themselves with the Australian people.He doesn't shirk the big questions: What went wrong for the Howard government and did the electorate reject its values or just its leader? What does it mean to be a political conservative in the post-Howard era and how can conservatives and liberals live together inside the same political party? How can a small government party support a big foreign policy agenda and a nationalist party staunchly support traditional allies?Without pollie-waffle, Abbott outlines the Australia he would like to see in twenty years' time.moreless
