Jeannine Perritt gave a not very nice - but very believable - account of a memorable, for all the wrong reasons, night out with Malcolm Fraser in New York when she was a young journalist.

He was everything the Australian so-called 'working class' love to hate in conservative 'silver spoon, born to rule' politicians. I could forgive him that if he'd achieved something positive during his time as PM. OK, so I'm being unkind. He did achieve some things, but not one tenth of what he could - and should - have with the huge parliamentary majority he was given by the electorate in 1976.

He also did enormous damage in his incredibly misguided championing of Robert Mugabe.
