So, the news is out. The story I have not been able to write for the last four months or so – Malcolm Fraser’s resignation from the Liberal Party. It has killed me to watch him do more than a dozen public events over the last few weeks, including the Canberra Press Club, for heaven’s sake – and not be asked the crucial question that would have brought this story out earlier.

As his co-author, I had received the news in confidence, and he held me to that confidence. Which hurt.

But now I am released, and will write more on this for the Crikey email today.
