Manne, Robert

An unlikely radical‘, Sydney Morning Herald, 26 April 2014

Lengthy article based on interview with former prime minister, Malcolm Fraser, about his forthcoming book, Dangerous Allies. Fraser believes Australia should cut all military ties to the United States. Fraser examines the history of Australia’s long-standing alliance with the United States and its ‘psychic dependence’ on powerful allies.

The article includes a video. Relates to the issues raised by Hugh White. White comments on Fraser: ‘the most radical position argued by a former Australian prime minister on a strategic question since Billy Hughes in the 1930s’. See also Alison Broinowski and the links there.
