Summary
A fascinating insight into one of Australia's most powerful and effective political figures. Tony Windsor's understanding of the issues facing his rural and regional constituency motivated him to become a representative for those who love the land, from farmers to environmentalists, from rich to poor. Though the former National Party member's decision to support a minority Labor government created a firestorm of abuse, he managed to maintain his focus on the big picture, gaining considerable benefits for his regional electorate. As Don Watson wrote of him, 'Your constituents looked at a hung parliament with a Labor prime minister and could see only misery. But you, sir, saw opportunity.' This authorised biography of the straight-talking independent from Werris Creek lays bare the personal story behind the politician. From the death of his father when Tony was a child to the fortitude of his widowed mother in retaining the family farm and later the support of his wife, Lyn, and the love of his three children, it shows how his personal values and empathy were central to his ability to give a voice to rural and regional Australians
