Former Prime Minister Paul Keating has criticised his successor John Howard’s handling of the controversy surrounding Governor-General Peter Hollingworth.
Keating said Howard’s misjudgement was two-fold. He appointed a churchman and then failed to determine his suitability.
“Dr. Hollingworth is not just a victim of his own circumstances, he’s a victim of John Howard’s judgement,” Keating said.
