John Lilburne's journal the Liberal Party and Kevin Andrews.
0955 L Tue 30 Oct 2001
Earlier this year I joined the Liberal Party.
There is an election on 10 November, with John Howard, the Prime Minister, for the Liberals against the opposition, Kim Beazley.
Why did I come to pay about $18 for student membership of the Liberal Party? The main reason is to give support to the local Liberal member: Kevin Andrews.
There is an article about him on page 6 of The Australian, by Amanda Keenan:
I have not been very involved in the Liberal Party, only having been to one meeting. Today the front page headline is "Labor in deep trouble". But Kevin Andrews wrote in his campaign letter of 17 October: "If the Coalition winning is perceived as a fait accompli, it may become the pivotal moment a third term of government disappears." So I think I should make a better contribution.
