"...and where are we now? : thoughts on the 2004 election." 2004 Sambell Oration / by Robert Manne

by Manne, Robert | Brotherhood of St Laurence.

Publisher: Fitzroy, Vic. Brotherhood of St Laurence 2004Description: 15 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Notes: The 22nd annual Sambell Oration, Wednesday 20 October 2004 at Central Hall, Australian Catholic University, 20 Brunswick Street Fitzroy. 2 copiesSummary: Shortly after the November 2001 election I gave a talk which I called: “Where are we now?” The “we” here was deliberately ambiguous, referring both to Australia and to the kind of audience I knew would attend on that night—the left-liberal intelligentsia. When I was asked to provide a topic for tonight’s lecture, which I knew would occur shortly after the 2004 election, somewhat mischievously I suggested the title: “…And where are we now?” The “we” here has an identical ambiguity. Of course the title chosen allowed me to speak about a Labor victory if that were to occur. However as I believed it was almost certain that Labor would be defeated, I imagined that I would be speaking about the meaning of the defeat, as unhappily from my point of view I now am. For those who are enthusiastic about the victory of the Howard government I can only offer my apologies in advance. At least what follows will allow them to think about the interpretation of someone who regards the trajectory of Australia since 1996 with undisguised alarm Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
