Rothwell has well and truly thrown down the gauntlet, if the news briefly reported today in The Australian is any indicator. Arts Minister Rod Kemp, Aboriginal Affairs Minister Mal Brough, NT Labor MP and former ATSIC Commissioner Alison Anderson, and Bobby West Tjupurrula, current chairman of Papunya Tula Artists, are all quoted in a brief article in response to the Weekend’s report.
I’ve been astonished by the number of folks who took the trouble to forward Rothwell’s column to me in the last few days. Thank you all. More to follow in the days ahead.
