Lambie and Muir are forgotten people

Jacqui Lambie and Ricky Muir have long been pilloried by the political classes, but the tables have turned, with these unruly senators likely to trouble the Coalition.

To understand the threat posed to the Coalition government by unruly senators Jacqui Lambie and Ricky Muir, it’s necessary to go right back to where the Liberal Party started: the famous ‘forgotten people’ speech Robert Menzies gave in 1942, two years before calling a national meeting to found the new party.

The speech is a font of inspiration for both sides of politics. Both Kevin Rudd and Bill Shorten have drawn on it in speeches, but it is especially holy to Liberal MPs.
