Quarterly essay - political animal: the making of Tony Abbott: David Marr

Description

The Wheeler Centre's David Marr sets out to find the 'real' Tony Abbott.

David Marr’s Quarterly Essay on former PM Kevin Rudd marked the beginning of the end. Was it a well-timed coincidence, or a body blow he never recovered from? Now, Marr turns his pen to prime-minister-in-waiting Tony Abbott, tossing aside the mad monk’s robes, the budgie smugglers and all the other clichés to find out what kind of man – and leader – he really is. David joins us in conversation with veteran political journalist George Megalogenis.
