Garfield Barwick=Liberal

Garfield Barwick was a Liberal MP, then a Liberal Government Attorney-General and Minister for External Affairs. He was appointed to the High Court by a Liberal Government, where he proved controversial, ruling in favour of tax avoiders and giving under the radar advice to John Kerr which was highly prejudicial to the Whitlam Government. His autobiography was titled “A Radical Tory”!

So when you get invited to give a “Garfield Barwick” Lecture, you don’t need the forensic skills or analytical ability of a High Court judge to suspect that the Lecture might be a Liberal Party show. Dyson Heydon’s position as Royal Commissioner is untenable and he should resign from it.
