Morrison signs on with political network home to ‘intolerant far right’

Mr Morrison gave a speech sharply critical of China at an event jointly organised by the IDU.

Showing his true colors is Morrison being paid?

Mr Morrison’s register of interests was updated this week to reflect a new position on the board of the International Democrat Union.

The IDU was founded as an international alliance of political parties from the right to centre-right, but the former PM did not respond to questions about what many observers say is its increasing affiliation with populist, Christian anti-immigration parties on the far right of European politics.

Doug Saunders, international affairs columnist for Canada’s largest newspaper, The Globe and Mail, said the IDU had “shifted to the intolerant far right” as it kept Fidesz, the party of Hungarian autocrat Viktor Orban, among its members.
