JOHN MENADUE.- Podcast ABC ‘The Eleventh’, February/March 2020

This is an edited transcript of an interview I conducted with the ABC for a podcast series The Eleventh

I was brought up in a lower middle class home,a Methodist Manse. I assumed that my ‘betters’ must somehow be honourable and trustworthy people.

After November 11 1975 I came to the conclusion that even a Governor General, High Court Judges and a powerful media proprietor were not honourable and trust worthy . I learned that powerful people will trample on long established conventions and institutions to protect the interests of themselves, their powerful friends and their class.

Forty five years later my trust has not been restored.
