Anti-China rhetoric damaging to Liberals – Michael West

The Liberals have a history conducting politics at a cultural level Morrison saw  political advantage of dividing the nation during the Cronulla riots and he continued to apply it with “stop the boats”. Multiculturalism was never an LNP value as much as it was a political opportunity. The Lebanese Muslims Chinese Africans Indigenous Australians all felt the two-face sting of the LNP handshake. If and when for a moment they were seen as an economic benefit it came with a smile quite readily followed by a political slap in the face. Dutton was a master at spreading Liberal hate.

The Liberals have been urged to rebuild the party’s relationship with members of Australia’s Chinese community as a key priority in the wake of its election defeat.
