Anyone who thought Malcolm Fraser was wrong in thinking that the Liberal Party was no longer a liberal party was disabused today when the Opposition Leader Tony Abbott released his policy on combating illegal immigration. The Abbott plan goes right back to the Howard Government proposals which first made former Prime Minister Fraser think about leading the Party he once led. It is a policy that will certainly split the parliamentary Liberal Party but that will not matter very much given that the rump of small "l" Liberals is now so small.
