Downer and Howard - Flippant and Opportunist

Adam Hughes Henry

    Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


    John Howard and Alexander Downer have attempted to present themselves as competent foreign policy managers. Simple analysis illustrates quite the reverse. Prior to becoming Prime Minister, Howard demonstrated little interest in international affairs. Apart from his consistent backing for the US-Australia alliance (notably, through his support for the Vietnam War), there is little in Howards past to suggest foreign policy competence.
