The Lancet critical of John Howard and his government
April 22nd, 2007

It is pleasing to read in local newspapers here and also here that the internationally respected journal, The Lancet, is critical of John Howard and his government. The focus of the editorial is upon the Howard government’s neglect of health and the silencing of critics. The editor also criticises the conservative outlook of the government with critcisms not only of Howard and the health minister, Tony Abbot, but also Malcolm Turnbull and his dismissive attitude towards the UN’s intergovernmental panel on climate change.

As the editorial in the Lancet concludes “This year provides an opportunity at the ballot box to bring a new enlightenment to Australian health and medical science” and an a new direction in the way Australian governments handle immigration, asylum seekers, refugees and the worker. It is time to vote John Howard and the Liberal ~ National Party coalition out.
