ABSTRACT
The article focuses on David Barnett, the veteran political warrior and admiring biographer of Australian Prime Minister John Howard. Barnett has much colour and humour in his life and while he is proud to be a right-winger who absolutely supports the Iraq war and of course the prime minister who signed up for it. Barnett does not classify himself as a neo-conservative in the mould of the U.S. Barnett had three children. His second child, Simon Barnett, started smoking dope at school. Then he began experimenting with whatever he could get his hands on. His son became a schizophrenic.
