Our First President (Michael Thornton)

Our First President
Michael Thornton

Blurb: It's early 1995. An ambitious Liberal wants to be Australia's Prime Minister, a Labor Minister wants to restore his party to its true values, and a newspaper editor sees the National Party as giving him the top job.

Each to further his own aims, the three men plot to put a woman in the Lodge - temporarily. Yet out first woman PM surprises everyone with her skills.

Our First President is about the shape of Australian politics in 1995: GATT, the GST, rorts, the republic, from Western Victoria to the wheat fields of Western Australia, from London to Los Angeles.

Most of all, Our First President is Australian.
