 Ben Oquist: Weekend elections point to 2007 struggle between Greens and Family First   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Mr Kerr, it seems criticising the Lefts' defence of itself as an attack on free speech is the last, but frequently taken, refuge of the outwitted neo-con.
Christian Kerr is one of your greatest assets and I personally look for his articles, dumping on all and sundry (Right, Left and Green) without fear or favour, more neutral and more journalistic than some of your kneejerk leftist contributors.
It’s unfortunate that Christian Kerr is simply not the man to do it, as he has shown himself incapable of controlling his bigotry towards the Greens, and is apparently wilfully ignorant about their policies and “what they really stand for”.
