My letter from John Howard

It was an unexpected pleasure to receive a letter today from the previous prime minister of Australia, John Howard.

When you write to politicians they often seem more interested in replying when an election is looming, but on this occasion there was no political gain to be made by replying to my letter thanking him for his service to Australia as our prime minister.

I'm not a Liberal voter, and I'm pleased that the Labor Party finally took over, but I also acknowledge that Mr Howard did plenty of good things while he was in office.
