“It is with deep sadness that we inform you that after a brief illness, John Malcolm Fraser died peacefully in the early hours of the morning of 20 March, 2015,” a statement released by his office said.

If history thinks well of you, that’s fine, but history has thought well of some pretty disreputable characters at times. Maybe it’s more important to try and do your best and know you’ve tried to do your best, for yourself. – Malcolm Fraser
