Letter to The Editor - Maintenance of national unity against the "indigenous" separatist campaign
To The Australian Paul Kelly underrates the importance of conservative and traditionalist ideas to any successful resurgence of the Liberal Party under Scott Morrison ("Morrison's relying on values to silence tribal drums", 12/9). Negative comment about "tribal conservatives" and the "flawed agenda" of the "populist conservative media" is not illuminating or helpful. Kelly provides no evidence to support his claim that "the conservative wing of the Liberals in recent times has become too narrow, too introspective and too out of touch with mainstream opinion". It may not be so much that Tony Abbott "failed as PM to sell his conservative convictions to the public" as that a coalition of his opponents successfully undermined him by an intense artillery of hostile comment. Morrison and the Liberals need to return to defence of the monarchy, protection of free speech and the maintenance of national unity against the "indigenous" separatist campaign.
