So, JWH’s tender and caring side was really hidden beneath his hardened and oftentimes ruthless and deceptive exterior? Janet A finds herself fighting hard to portray ‘superman’ as a really sweet and caring man in today’s column.
David Williamson seems to have found a soft spot. Let the ideological wars begin.
The very last paragraph says it all and in so many ways, in my opinion:
‘When conservatives learn that good policy is about winning hearts as well as minds, they will shake off this recurring theme that to be a conservative is to lack compassion”

PLAYWRIGHT David Williamson has some advice for those of us on the conservative side of politics. In a long email exchange between us, he said conservatives lack compassion. Indeed, it is a constant refrain from critics on the Left. While much of this criticism is based on lazy and crude logic, Williamson deserves to be addressed for two critical reasons.
First, to prove wrong the progressive myth that those on the Left have a moral monopoly over compassion. And second, to remind conservatives that they are sometimes their own worst enemy in articulating why their policies produce the best outcomes.
Over to you
