Michael Danby

I’m sorry to hear that Michael Danby will retire at the next election.

I’ve known Michael since we were both involved in student politics, albeit on different sides, some 40 or so years ago. He has always shown an uncompromising clear conviction for his beliefs.

His preparedness to stand up for, in particular, the nation of Israel and the Jewish community in Australia is something that I have always found to be highly commendable.

While there are many things on which we disagree, his departure from the Parliament will be a great loss.

I wish Michael and his family all the very best for the future.
