Tony Abbott Will Be Australia’s Most Culturally Literate Prime Minister

April 6, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ As I said at the IPA anniversary dinner, I believe Tony Abbott – if successful at the election – will be the most culturally literate and thoughtful Prime Minister since at least Robert Menzies. While I have at times argued with him over policy, I have not once had reason to […]
