Since 1996, a shift to the right has characterized Australian politics. Such a trend is recognizable via what many commentators have referred to as the rise of the New Right; a neo-conservative movement characterized by the coupling of free-market economic principles with socially conservative values (see Markus, 2001; McKnight, 2005). This year, 2006, witnessed the 10th anniversary of Prime Minister John Howards leadership in Australia, and has continued to be marked by the movement of the Australian Labor Party to the centre and the disparagement of other dissenting or oppositional voices.
