Abstract

Politics is about ideas that mobilise the populace in the national interest. Such ideas like at the heart of successful democracies. Those ideas concerned with national security and maintenance of traditional rights and freedoms are especially important. This has been recognised by the Australian Parliament working co-operatively in a bi-partisan manner in times of war. However, in the War on Terror there has been little overt bi-partisanship.
