Pearls & Irritations is unique. Its contributors and readers are a growing community of people with an exceptionally wide-ranging and open-minded commitment to effective, progressive and rational public policy. Most contributors have been actively engaged professionally in the fields about which they write and do so in consequence with conviction and practical understanding. Their minds are open at the front but not at the back, and their trenchant opinions are of immediate relevance in contemporary Australian society.
Bob Debus was Attorney General, Minister for Environment and Minister for Emergency Services in the Carr government in NSW.
