Description: Dr Thalia Anthony argues that former NSW minister Graham West resigned in a rare act of political selflessness.
Quote: “It was a commitment to the well being of young people, especially indigenous youth, that was Graham West's downfall. While it was nothing new for a NSW minister to resign, his resignation did not follow the formula of other state ministers. It could almost be argued that Graham West was too selfless for the government.”
