Most comment seems to think we will shortly have a new governor-general and there's a boom in support for Tim Fischer. I think he would be an excellent choice, but I doubt Howard will choose him.
I want a governor-general who says things like this.
Just before the Iraq war, I shared a platform with Fischer at a conference on security. He began with the startling comment: "If Lawrence had been allowed to draw, we would not today be facing war."
Lots more impressive than what we get now.
